The time has finally arrived for Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) to face the consequences of his crimes, and as he awaits learning his fate, he will start to wonder what his family member's lives would be like if they had never had him around on The Young and the Restless. 

Victor's Crimes Catch Up To Him

The only person who seems willing to hear him out at the moment, even though he's facing punishment for a crime committed against her mother, is his granddaughter, Summer (Hunter King), who will visit him, as his children--Victoria (Amelia Heinle), Nick (Joshua Morrow), Adam (Justin Hartley) and Abby (Melissa Ordway)--and his wife, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott), all turn their backs on him. And when she goes to visit, Victor will defend himself and the actions he has taken over the years to protect his family by quoting Robert Frost--and in the process, he will wonder how things would have happened with all of their lives if he hadn't controlled things the way he had.

"I shall be telling this with a sigh. Two words diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by," he says in a preview clip for the Wednesday, March 2 episode. "And that has made all the difference."

Who Natalie Really Works For Is Revealed

As he speaks with Summer, he will have flashes of everyone and will muse that, despite all the pain he may have caused them through his actions, especially against other people, their lives would all be significantly worse if he wasn't around. And though they are all still upset with him and have no desire to be by his side anymore, his description of their lives without him may prompt Summer to try and convince her family to give him one more chance.
