Nikki Newman might get caught in her own trap

On The Young and the Restless trouble is brewing and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is at the center of it all. Along with Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) and Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson), she is plotting the downfall of Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters). Spoilers are vague on the outcome but the goal of the three frenemies is to see that Diane is run out of Genoa City these women might get caught in their own trap.

Nikki knew she could not handle this alone and was so desperate that she enlisted the help of two women she dislikes almost as much as Diane and the feeling is mutual. It looks like Ashley, Nikki, and Phyllis are going to get the woman they despise out of their hair and away from their loved ones but the situation could always flip.

Diane could find a way to turn the tables and come out looking like a victim and Nikki especially might be revealed as the troublemaker. Thus far Ms. Jenkins has done nothing that would cause Y&R viewers or anyone in Genoa City to believe she is up to no good. Everyone is going by her past behavior and with good reason.

Nikki needs to be knocked down a peg or two

Diane seems to know something up and when she ran into Nikki at society she was taken aback by Mrs. Newman's calm demeanor but she did not, however, find out any details. The last time the two women were this close Nikki threw a drink in her enemy's face. Diane is correct in her assertion that Phyllis sold the Grand Phoenix and took the Marchette job to somehow set her up for a fall but there is a bigger plan in motion,

Investigative reporter Talia Morgan (Natalie Morales) has been brought to Genoa City to write a scathing story to embarrass Diane but spoilers tease that it might be her enemies who end up going down. Some fans of The Young and the Restless say that it's time for Nikki to have a comeuppance because she can at times be smug and look down on others. Her nose could not have gotten any higher than when Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) named her the Newman Enterprises co-CEO.

Viewers weighed in on this and overwhelmingly agreed that Nikki was not qualified for the job even as Victor Newman gushed over her and said how proud he was of his "baby" the "Madame co-CEO. Now that Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Diane are growing closer this will cause her haters to bring out more vitriol. Ashley is Jack's sister and Phyllis and Diane are his ex-wives and they all are fiercely protective of him.

Y&R viewers want to see Nikki fall

According to The List, Y&R fans are now voicing their disdain for Phyllis and Nikki and hoping Diane does turn the tables. One said that Nikki and Phyllis are ignoring how their actions will hurt Kyle Abbot (Michael Mealor) Harrison Abbott (Kellen Enriquez) and Summer Newman (Allison Lanier). Another said that Talia should write an expose on the dirty deeds of Phyllis and Nikki.

There have been no leaks from insiders or spoilers indicating the direction this storyline is headed but some fans believe Diane should come out of this smelling like a rose and that Nikki who started this ball rolling should be the one who gets knocked off her high horse. Stay tuned to ` to find out which of these women comes out as the winner.
