Wednesday’s The Young and the Restless was all about Jack (Peter Bergman) throwing the Newman family out of Newman Enterprises. Victor (Eric Braeden) and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) were eating breakfast when they received a call from Nick (Joshua Morrow) stating Jack wanted to see them at Newman. Victor told Nick that Jack could wait, but he and Nikki still hurried to the office.

Jack quickly revealed he now had a combination of enough stock and shareholders backing him to take control of Newman. He fired Victor, Nick and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and told them they had until the next day to pack up and leave.


Victor was furious Tucker (Stephen Nicholas) sold Beauty of Nature back to him, only for Jack to now get control. Victor accused Jack of being in cahoots with Tucker on the scheme. However, Jack said he wasn't involved, and it was a pleasant surprise. I'm not sure Victor believed him.

As Jack was leaving of Victor's office, he told his old foe to take his portrait with him, because he planned to install one of himself in the office. There's nothing like twisting the knife, huh?

After Jack left, Victor called his former backers at Newman and tried to understand how and why they betrayed him. The single answer he received was Sharon Neman. Even after cutting a deal to keep Sharon out of jail, Victor’s ex-wife had brought about his ouster at Newman.

After leaving Newman, Jack visited Billy (Billy Miller) and offered him a job at the company. Billy refused, because he wanted to stay out of the Newman vs. Abbott fight and show solidarity with his wife. However, when Victoria later learned about Jack’s offer, she told Billy he should accept it. She thought it would be a great way for her to have some eyes and ears at Newman.

The episode ended with Jack as pleased as punch. However, while he may be crowing like a rooster at having finally topped Victor, I can’t help but wonder how long it will be before Victor rips the company out of his hands. It's only a matter of time before Jack finds himself eating crow.
