I probably can just easily look this up somewhere or go back on those wonderful 1989 SOD synopses section pages CarlD2 posted, but something that just popped in my head, when Victor took over Jabot in 1989, was Brad already his right hand man, and did he actually help Victor with the takeover?

I can't stand Brad, but it's gonna make me cringe that a guy who possibly had a hand of helping an even more dispicable man take over a beloved family's company because he hated Jack, had the gull to try to romance both Ashley and Traci....

There is just something so wrong with that.

Thanks....I can sleep a little better knowing that he wasn't a part of the takeover LOL....Brad's character just annoys me (even if i prefer Don Diamont as Brad then Bill)

but Brad did initially become Victor's right hand to annoy Jack right?

He was very much in love with Traci, and I think they were married at the time, so he would never had anything to do with the Takeover, He became Victor's rigth hand man after the takeover.

When did Brad turn his back on Victor? Also in general when did Brad become a more prominent character in general?

Things between Victor and Brad went sour by 1995/1996 with the Brad and Nikki affair and the fact by that point Victor and Jack had a civil working relationship and Victor gave Jack more to do. Also being a prime suspect in Victor's shooting didn't help matters.

I think you could say Brad was always a prominent supporting character although I know Latham tried to make him the leading man but it didn't work.

Actually, it was before that. Right before Victor "died" (and went to Kansas), Jack & Brad worked together to take over Newman Enterprises. If I remember correctly, Brad was to run Newman and Jack would finally have Jabot back. I'm pretty sure Victor got wind of it and was flying back to stop them when the plane ended up crashing wman(in Kansas). Jack kept coming up with reasons to stall Brad from taking over Newman but Jack was actually double crossing him. Victor came back to town and Jack and Brad were shaking in their boots (their reactions were the biggest in the whole Collenade (sp?) Room.

I believe shortly after is when Brad enforced the Golden Parachute he had in his original contract or something to that effect. I'm pretty sure I'm remembering right but if someone could fill in the gaps, I'd appreciate it too. This was when Y&R was can't miss TV for me.

That was the second takeover.

The first takeover had Jack doing most of the work while Brad was busy with Traci, Ashley & Lauren.

He became Victor's rigth hand man after the takeover.


Actually Brad was Victor's right hand man before the takeover (which is how Victor became Colleen's Godfather).

Brad became a secondary lead once MD left for Broadway.

Prior to that he was a third string leading man at best.

In the April 1994 episodes yr posted you can see Neil taking over more and more of Brad's job, as Brad fights Traci (and later has his heart attack). I just wonder if Bill Bell had any plans for Neil in the company. I think the corporate world in the long run has emasculated Neil as a character.

He was wasn't Victor's right hand before Victor's takeover of Jabot but he was before Jack's first takeover of Newman.

Bill had a LOT of plans for Kristoff & Neil that were dropped due to backstage & casting issues.

I always wonder when newman entreprises was created. Victor came in town and joined chancellor, then he tried to take over prentiss. The jabot takeover happened in 1989 but when did Victor started his own firm?

I may be wrong but didn't Victor already have Newman when he arrived in 1980 and was also overseeing Chancellor.?

I believe you are right, Newman Enterprises existed before Victor arrived in Genoa City, because I think that is why Kay asked Victor to takeover Chancellor when she went on the cruise with Derek around September 1980. I think it may have been mentioned around that time.
