He’s been trying to figure out who’s framing his father for a murder he didn’t commit, but Nick’s investigation will instead lead him to learn more about what really happened on the night JT died on the Friday. Jan. 25 episode of “The Young and the Restless.”

Ever since Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) confessed to him that she was the one who murdered JT (Thad Luckinbill) on the CBS soap, not Victor (Eric Braeden), Nick (Joshua Morrow) has been determined to find out who is trying to frame Victor for the crime while also making sure his mother’s role isn’t exposed. He had been made aware that Victoria (Amelia Heinle) was also involved in the crime, but didn’t know that Sharon (Sharon Case) and Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) were also a part of the huge coverup. Following Phyllis’ admission to Nikki however that she never threw the fire poker into the lake, Nick will begin to receive more pieces of the mysterious puzzle.

After they started to believe Phyllis might be the one framing Victor, Victoria and Nikki didn’t hesitate to quickly inform Nick about what his girlfriend is up to. A confrontation with her might have an unexpected ending, however, as spoilers reveal that “Nick learns one of Sharon’s secrets.”

Phyllis will, of course, want to do whatever she can to save herself and her relationship with Nick, and she will likely swear to him the way she did to Nikki that while she didn’t throw out the fire poker as an insurance policy, she isn’t the one who is trying to take Victor down. As he admits he’s finding it hard to believe though, she will likely reveal that there was one more person involved in JT’s murder, throwing Sharon under the bus as well and suggesting that she could, in fact, be the one trying to take Victor down.

Now, stunned because both of the women he’s been involved with since JT’s death have been lying to him the entire time, Nick will have to confront Sharon as well while he goes to seek answers.

“The Young and the Restless” airs weekdays at 12:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
