The Young and the Restless: Who's Victor's Mystery Partner?
This is the number one theory floating around the online soap community. Many fans have speculated there’s a Jack impersonator based on the strange way Mr. Abbott was behaving the night of his Valentine’s rendezvous with Kelly at The Underground. Victor’s been known to hire look-a -likes to get what he wants (remember the Mariah incident). So it wouldn’t be surprising if Victor found an impersonator to help him bring down his enemy once and for all.
Victor mentioned in the confessional that it’s important that nobody finds out he and his partner know each other. Given that Sage is a newcomer, nobody would suspect that she knew Victor. But what motive would she have for teaming up with Victor?
Sage helped Adam fake his death and start a new identity, but since then her relationship with Adam has soured and Sage could be looking to get payback by revealing Adam’s secret to his father.
Another theory is that Sage is Sandra, the girl who was injured at Nick’s party. Victor paid off her family in order to keep the incident quiet in order to save his son and protect the Newman name. Sage could’ve threatened to reveal her identity and expose The Newman family’s secrets, leading Victor to make her an offer.
Unbeknownst to Victor, Gabe is actually his presumed dead son, Adam. Part of Victor’s plan is to bring down Jabot, the company that belongs to Jack Abbott, one of Adam’s friends. Adam and Victor have had a contentious relationship, and learning that Victor was responsible for the death of Gabriel Bingham’s father, Adam has revenge on his mind. What better revenge is there than playing along with Victor's plan, then double crossing him at the last minute.
