Apparently, this all came after Eric had pressed the writers at the time and asked, “When are we going to see Victor be Victor?” In response, Eric said, “The last regime introduced things that no one gave a damn about, okay?

I hate to say it, but obviously, the Newman empire is one of the main cornerstones of the show.”
