Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) has it in for Victor (Eric Braeden) on The Young and the Restless. But he’s done nothing wrong where J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) was concerned and instead he is actually playing hero.
Y&R Spoilers– Victor Is Innocent, This Time!
There’s no sympathy for the ‘Moustache’ in Genoa City. He deserves good press, rather than the smear that Detective Rosales is applying. Like Paul (Doug Davidson) and Christine (Lauralee Bell) initially attempted, Rey is firmly convinced that Victor committed the crime and has been working backwards to try and convict him. An eventual fail is sure to arrive.
Starting with the conclusion, rather than the facts, Rey’s calculation flaw is the same as Paul’s. For whatever his reason, Chief Williams came to believe that Victor was guilty of global price-fixing.
Y&R’s viewers found it odd that GC’s top law enforcement officer and his wife, the town’s district attorney, suddenly were convinced that Victor was certainly guilty of a topic that hadn’t previously been referenced. Writing both characters against the ‘Black Knight’ proved quickly purposeful, as the human tool ‘Pristine’ manipulated into working for them, J.T., was then forced to try and find evidence of Victor’s guilt.

Y&R Spoilers— JT Tried To Kill Victor Twice!
This led to Luckinbill and Braeden’s memorizing fight scene within the Ranch setting, which climaxed with Victor’s spellbinding backwards fall down the stairs and J.T.’s non-response. It was, truly, one of the best-choreographed visuals in years. Fans of solid soap appreciated it fully.
Not having been present as the above paragraph was proceeding, it became understandable that Rey would believe that Victor was acting on a repeat grudge. J.T. had, in fact, twice tried to kill the ‘Moustache’. It, therefore, fit, in Rey’s mind, that Victor eventually sought revenge and had Mr. Hellstrom permanently ditched, even though he didn’t.
Typed as the stereotypical rich man, Victor won’t be expecting a full-throated apology whenever it’s revealed that he’s just not guilty. But longtime fans of Y&R’s lead male character didn’t, aren’t and won’t malign him. They sympathize with this imperfect, yet innocent man.
