The Young and the Restless (Y&R) suggests that Victor Newman may devise a new strategy to handle the Claire’s situation.
Despite Claire’s current incarceration, it appears that she might find a way to escape charges, possibly by working with the police and striking a deal.
The dynamics between Claire, Victor, and the Newman family are expected to take center stage in the upcoming storyline.
Claire’s Legal Troubles
Victor might need to come up with a new plan to get rid of Claire. Even though Claire is incarcerated at the moment, she will undoubtedly manage to get away with the charges.
Claire might work with the police to locate her aunt and reach a compromise to avoid serving a lengthy prison sentence.
Michael should be persuaded to assist Claire in clearing her name since Victoria and Cole are expected to stand by her.
After what Claire did to Nikki and the rest of his family at the lake house, Victor Newman might not care all that much about Claire’s blood relation, even though the results of the DNA test will undoubtedly show that she is a Newman.
From Victor’s perspective, Claire might constantly bring up negative memories and feelings for Nikki, which is why he might want her gone.
Victoria may feel differently, but Victor might believe that in this case, father knows best! Victor might take action to remove Claire from the picture permanently, even though the fact that she is his granddaughter might spare her life.
Impact on Family Dynamics
With Claire, Victor might once again turn to his well-known tactic of bribing troublesome individuals and pressuring them to leave town.
Once upon a time, Victor was prepared to spend a significant sum of money to get Tessa out of Noah’s life.
Similar to how Sally declined to exchange her child for a prosperous company outside of Genoa City, Tessa declined the offer.
That might also apply to Claire, even though the circumstance with Sally ended up being more of a test of loyalty. Perhaps this will be Claire’s first encounter with Victor’s psychological tricks.
In order to test Claire’s willingness to prioritize money over starting a family, Victor may offer her $1 million or more in exchange for her disappearance.
That might be all Victor needs to know if Claire runs off with the money. Victor might begin to grow fonder of Victoria if Claire declines and shows that she truly wants to bond with her.
On the other hand, Victor may be concerned that Claire is only looking to stay and eventually take advantage of his family even more.
