Young and Restless Recaps
Y&R Week of August 23, 2010
At Gloworm, Jack urged Phyllis to get a hold of her emotions "fast" before she does something she regrets. After sharing how she saw Nick kissing another woman and that he's probably now with his favorite damsel in distress, Sharon, Phyllis grumbled at Jack to keep his advice to himself.
Victor encountered Adam at the G.C.A.C. gym, where Adam taunted about the lawsuit he has lodged against dear old dad. Victor called his son "psychotic" but Adam vowed he would amass power and money despite Victor's interference. Finally, Victor slugged Adam, who went crashing to the floor.
Daniel and Abby showed up at Gloworm, where Deacon starting pushing Daniel's buttons about his hot mama. Adam and his black eye arrived to meet up with Skye. Phyllis was peeved to be served with Adam's lawsuit so she threw a drink into his face. Jack had to drag a screaming Phyllis away. Abby sulked to Daniel that the spotlight was stolen from her by Phyllis's assault on Adam. Meanwhile, Skye advised Adam to drop his suit but he refused.
Tucker showed up at the pool house to see Ashley and find out why she's been avoiding him. She claimed she didn't want to see him anymore because her life is "too complicated" for them to get involved. Tucker pointed out that they're already involved and asked what Ash is afraid of. She answered that she simply had no interest in him but Tucker found that hard to believe. She told him to go home and slammed the door. Tucker picked up a patio chair and hurled it through the glass of the door. Ashley tore his shirt off and started kissing him. They then had sex on the floor.
At the tack house, Nick and Sharon put Faith and Summer to bed. Nick once again asked Sharon to move into their former house on the ranch (the one they lived together in as a married couple) so they can be neighbors; she agreed.
Victoria and Billy went to a tattoo parlor to prove the permanence of their love by getting tatted. She went first and a tattoo artist named Snake started working on the small of her back. After Victoria was done with her "Billy Forever" tattoo, it was Billy's turn. Snake wasn't quite done with the next tattoo when he suddenly collapsed. While Victoria called 911, Billy noticed his incomplete tat was a heart with "Victor" inside it. After Snake was taken away by the paramedics, Billy freaked out about having Victor's name on his body.
Nick showed up at Crimson Lights to pick up pastries for Summer and ran into Phyllis. They were talking peacefully until Nick revealed that Summer was with Sharon at the tack house. Phyllis ranted at him for moving "that whore" into their home. "This is pathetic," Phyl raged. He said she no longer had a say in his life and stormed away.
Adam showed up at the tack house and told Sharon that he can't live without her. He brought up their kiss on the night Gloworm opened but she didn't want to discuss that ever again. Nick showed up and kicked his brother out, then complained about the "sick hold" Adam has on Sharon.
Victor suggested to Jack that they bring Adam down together. Victor outlined that he will provide the cash Jack will invest in Adam's hedge fund. Jack called Skye and told her that he wanted in.
While Deacon was in the alley throwing trash away, Phyllis arrived and they started tearing off each other's clothes.
Lily was anxiously preparing for the christening of the twins. Matilda was going to wear Lily's christening gown while Charlie was getting a new one. Cane worried that his wife was doing too much but she assured she was fine.
Lauren wanted to appeal the judge's ruling in Jill's favor but Michael warned his wife that nothing could be changed unless Joanna recanted her testimony. Lauren groused how Jill gets to be awarded half of the hard work of three generations.
Paul reported to Nina that both of her lost son's adoptive parents, the Lansings, have died. He explained that they led quiet lives. "They had good reason not to draw attention to themselves," Paul noted. "They purchased their son on the black market." However, Paul assured that Nina's son was doted on and had a good life, which did provide her a measure of comfort. Paul admitted he's hit a brick wall in finding where Nina's son is now and she feared that he might be dead. Paul vowed that they would find him.
After Jill got new executive photos taken by Malcolm, Cane and Lily arrived to pick up their babies' portraits. Jill asked if it was okay that she consider Charlie and Matilda her grandchildren and Cane smiled that he would be honored. Michael called Jill and asked her to come over to sign the papers. Before rushing out, Jill told Cane and Lily that she had something to give them later. Cane advised Jill to go easy on Lauren.
At Crimson Lights, Chloe asked Ronan why he's going by a different identity. He said he wanted to meet his family but he doesn't intend on revealing who he is to them. Chloe pointed out that she knows that Ronan likes Nina but he ordered Chloe to stay out of his business.
Chance asked Heather if she knew who stole the drugs from her desk and she said it was Ronan. "He says he's holding onto them to protect me," Heather explained, but Chance still believed Ronan is a dirty cop. Chance insisted on accompanying Heather when she talked to Owen but she said she wanted to do it alone because she first needed to explain why she helped smuggle drugs out of prison.
At Owen's office, Heather told her boss that Ronan has the drugs and is trying to trace their origin to the police evidence locker. Ronan arrived and when questioned about the drugs, said there was no connection to the police evidence. Heather was shocked; Owen fired Heather and Ronan gave the drugs to Owen. After the D.A. left, Ronan explained to Heather, "I may have just saved your life." Heather surmised that the drugs did have a police connection after all but Ronan ordered her to go home and leave the investigating to him. She got mad and slapped him.
Chance ran into Chloe, who brought up his brother. Chloe said she read Nina's book and asked what would Chance do if his brother suddenly showed up but he didn't seem interested. Heather stalked in and announced that she had been fired. Chance gave her a comforting hug so Chloe left. Heather wanted to give up but Chance vowed to see the investigation through. Then they kissed.
Jill arrived at Lauren's office and the papers were signed. Jill hoped they could have a relationship outside of business but Lauren said they are sisters in name only.... Paul got a text from a researcher he hired that a photo of Nina's son was found in an old newspaper. Nina asked to have the picture faxed to the house. It turned out to be of a school football team but the faces were fuzzy. Paul said he had someone who could enhance the photo... Jill met up with Cane and Lily and offered them Phillip's christening gown for Charlie to wear. The Ashbys were touched and happily accepted.... Ronan told Meeks that he gave Owen street drugs and not the contraband that came out of the police evidence locker. Ronan told Meeks that he expected to be rewarded.... Chloe asked Ronan if he wanted to come over to her place for lunch and he agreed.... Lauren was stunned to find Jill putting her executive photo on the wall. Jill said she was having one put in every single Fenmore boutique and department store.
Traci, Jill, Malcolm, Sofia, Olivia, Devon and Roxanne gathered at Cane and Lily's house, but as everybody was ready to head to the church for the christening, Michael showed up. He shared that the immigration agent wanted to speak to Cane as soon as possible. Cane and Lily left with Michael while everyone else went to the church.
Billy lamented over his unfinished tattoo. "My dad would be so proud," joked Victoria. Billy explained, "I've called every tattoo parlor in town, and they tell me they can't fix it until this thing heals." Victoria announced she was going to spend time with Reed at the ranch after the christening and Billy urged her to tell J.T. that they've moved in together. Meanwhile, Mac was insecure when she learned that J.T. was hesitant about sharing their living arrangements with his ex-wife. He assured that he would talk with Victoria.
Chance and Heather started to take off each other's clothes but their amorous moment was broken when she noticed Ronan's car parked outside. His ardor sufficiently quelled, Chance thought it was a good idea not to go any further with Heather, who clearly wanted to. Assuming that Ronan was tailing him, Chance took off to confront him.
After Chloe changed into something more comfortable, someone showed up and told Ronan that Chance was on the move. Fearing Chance could get into trouble, Ronan headed out to find him. Heather saw Ronan leave Chloe's place and called Chance with that info. He returned to Chloe's apartment and told her that Ronan is following him. "He is using you," Chance charged and warned her to stay away from Ronan.
Ronan showed up at Heather's apartment, looking for Chance. She ordered him to leave her place so he went back to Chloe's and got into an argument with Chance. Chloe demanded that Chance leave. Ronan told Chloe that she was obviously still hung up on Chance. Ronan explained how he went into uncover work so he could re-invent himself but it gets lonely. After he left, Chloe placed her engagement ring in an envelope and brought it to Heather's door, where she could hear Chance and Heather having sex.
At the immigration office, Lily was nervous over the prospect of her husband being deported. She vowed to move Down Under with him with the twins but he was adamantly opposed to it. Michael didn't seem hopeful about Cane's fate.
Victoria arrived at the church where Mac and J.T. were waiting with Reed. The little boy chirped to his mom that Mac was a permanent fixture at his dad's place. The back of Victoria's blouse slid up and J.T. saw her tattoo. When J.T. confirmed that Mac has moved in with him and Reed, Victoria said she was taking him back to court to revisit their custody agreement. "Bring it on, tattoo girl," countered J.T. "And while you're at it, why don't you wear that skirt to court instead of testifying; the judge can just read your ass." Later, Cane and Lily returned to the church and she announced, "He can stay!"
Katherine arrived at the church in time to hear Michael confirm that Cane gets to stay in the U.S. thanks to the work visa Sofia arranged. Everyone took their seats so the christening could begin. Billy had to run out to the vestibule and stop Victoria and J.T.'s squabbling so they could attend.
The christening ground to a halt when Lauren showed up and Jill demanded that her sister leave. Cane instructed them to put their differences aside and the ceremony resumed. Cane and Lily expressed their appreciation to everyone present for their love and support. They also shared why Devon and Traci were chosen to be the godparents. The reverend then baptized the babies.
After, lots of pictures were taken, with Jill and Neil beaming as the proud grandparents. Billy introduced himself to Sofia and admitted that he didn't like her boss, Tucker. Sofia laughed that it wasn't the first time she heard that. Billy then let his mom know that he was still angry with her for exposing Victoria's gift to a Japanese official that looked like a bribe.
Jill griped at Lauren for crashing the christening. When it was time for a family photo op, Lauren started to join in. "Don't you dare!" warned Jill; Michael held his wife back. Later, Lauren presented Cane and Lily with her baby gifts: Free clothes until their 18th birthdays. Jill was peeved forbeing upstaged.
Mac was getting melancholy being near the babies. Cane thanked her for coming and Lily promised she can be Aunt Mac whenever she's ready.... Victoria and J.T. left so they could further discuss Reed's custody.... Cane lamented about having to go to Canberra to work but Lily pointed out that at least it's just temporary.... Sofia encouraged Devon to finish his music demo so she could give it to Tucker, who owns a record label.... Lauren and Traci exchanged niceties... Devon reaffirmed his commitment to an insecure Roxanne when she brought up his fling with Tyra.... Neil complained to Olivia that Sofia is trying too hard to be part of the family.... Everyone was thrilled when Phillip suddenly arrived. Cane was especially touched and introduced his children to their Uncle Phillip.
At J.T.'s apartment, he voiced his disapproval over Victoria's tattoo. Victoria dissed her ex for moving Mac in and announced that she quit Newman Enterprises and left the ranch. "I'm moving in with Billy," Victoria announced. J.T. advised her not to waste her money on seeking custody under those circumstances and warned that Billy is unstable. Victoria huffed that she'll see J.T. in court.
Phillip told Cane that he was in danger if he sets foot in Australia. "If you go, you might not come back," Phillip warned.
Katherine asked Nikki to get together at Gloworm so they could discuss her wedding plans. When the ladies met (with Meggie tagging along), Nikki shared that she wanted nups that were "elegant" and "meaningful." Kay wanted to host the wedding on her estate and Nikki gratefully accepted. Meggie offered to get them a "Moscow Mule" and Nikki reminded that she doesn't drink and neither does Kay. Meggie said she would fetch ginger ales and secretly ordered one with vodka. Meggie then intentionally gave the tainted ginger ale to Nikki, which she drank from.
Tucker and Ashley smooched at the office, then he lamented over not being able to pry Beauty Of Nature from Victor. Jack walked in on his sister canoodling with Tucker. Ash left and Tucker asked Jack if he's made any progress with getting B of N. Jack insisted that Tucker first sign a "binding 3-year deal to make me co-C.E.O. of Jabot with Ashley." Tucker signed and Jack revealed that he has Abby on his side. Jack explained that Abby has a piece of all Newman holdings but she needs to gain control of her trust. Since Victor invested some of her money on a couple of ventures that went bust, Abby can sue her dad for mismanagement and get control. Tucker pointed out that Ashley won't be happy with the plan so Jack suggested they keep her in the dark.
Jack informed Victor and Michael that he was able to get a judge to separate the Newmans from the Abbotts in Adam's lawsuit. "I'd figured if we're not joined at the hip with Newman and company, we have a better chance of convincing Adam to drop the suit against Billy and Ashley and me," Jack reasoned. After he left, Victor told Michael, "If he knew what I have up my sleeve, he'd be kicking himself."
Now that she moved into the trailer, Victoria broke down in tears and fretted about where Reed was going to sleep when he stayed over. "I don't think I can live in this tiny little trailer," she admitted to Billy. He suggested they buy a house together and she happily agreed. They were surprised when they later met their new realtor, Gloria!
In her never-ending quest to get her money, Abby asked her mom if she cold have some of her inheritance if she signed up for college and got a part-time job. Ashley said she'll talk to Victor and get back to her.
Victor and Michael met up with Adam and Vance, who asked if Vic was ready to settle out of court. Victor said he wouldn't pay his son anything as Skye showed up. She shared what she already told Michael: "I've always known you were alive. You planted that ring in the stables to help me fake my death... we were in constant contact the whole time I was in South America. That's where I wrote the diary you used to blackmail Dr. Taylor, which you lied about at your criminal hearing." Adam was shocked by his wife's betrayal and she urged him to drop the lawsuit. Vance agreed to the terms. "Well played," Adam allowed to his dad.
Tucker announced to Ashley that Jack was now her co-C.E.O. She was pleased, then got a phone call from Michael. Ashley told a shocked Jack that Adam dropped his lawsuit against the Newmans.... Skye ordered a furious Adam to focus on their business and his commitment to her because she's calling the shots now.... Victoria was excited that the first house Gloria showed them looked exactly like the residence from FATHER KNOWS BEST. Gloria explained the owner was selling because he found a place that looked like the house from THE BRADY BUNCH. Billy told Glo that they'd take the place and Victoria was overjoyed.
