Currently, Billy and Adam’s feud has once again reignited. Billy is making it his mission to take down Adam and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). Billy’s recent actions are annoying fans, who feel Billy’s childish antics need to end.

Another user chimed in with, “Billy is one dimensional because of his Adam obsession. He can go.”

Their feud started over Delia Abbott’s death

The Young and the Restless‘ never-ending feud started with the death of Billy’s daughter Delia Abbott (Sophie Pollono). One night Billy was driving Delia home from a school recital when he stopped by the store. He left Delia and her dog Dash inside the car while he went into the market. When Delia let Dash out to go to the bathroom, the dog ran off, and she chased after him.

Around that time, Adam was driving down the road and swerved to miss Dash. Adam’s car ran into the bushes where Delia was hiding, but he was unaware of her presence. Delia later died of her injuries, and Adam later realized he was the driver who hit her.

After Billy learned the truth about Adam being Delia’s killer, his quest for revenge started. Billy tried to kill Adam twice, and his obsession led to his life spiraling out of control. His latest actions may once again do him more harm than good.
