Young and Restless Recaps
Y&R Week of July 12, 2010
Victor was furious when Victoria declared her love for Billy, and accused her of rebelling against him. Victoria pointed out that not everything is about her father.
A devastated Nick informed Nikki that Phyllis left him. He was determined to make things right with his wife. Meanwhile, Phyllis told Sharon the news and demanded that she get her apartment back. Sharon couldn't believe that Phyllis would leave him. Phyllis stated that though she and Nick love each other, Sharon always gets in the way. Sharon kept asking if it was really over. Phyllis again told her to get out of the penthouse and was glad that she no longer had to worry about whether Nick or Sharon would get back together. Sharon promised to be out as soon as possible. After, Phyllis sadly thought back to some happier memories of her marriage to Nick.... Sharon went to see Nick, who told Sharon to return to the penthouse. He wanted Phyllis to come home and be with him. Nick was determined to fight for his marriage. Sharon gave him her support.... Nick went to see Phyllis and told her how much he loves her. "I need you and Summer," he pleaded. Phyllis said that she won't keep him away from Summer, but she couldn't be with him. "I'm so tired," she sighed. "I can do this now," Nick insisted. "No, you can't," she argued. "It'll never just be us in this marriage. There will always be something between you and Sharon. ALWAYS. I will not sit back and watch it anymore!" she yelled. "I am done with this." Nick sadly walked away.
Victor joined Nikki at the G.C.A.C. and lamented that Victoria has lost her mind. He asked Nikki to talk to her, but Nikki wanted to let their daughter live her life. Victor didn't like Victoria being with an Abbott; Nikki countered that they've both been married to Abbotts. Victor went off on the Abbotts, which a hurt Abby overheard. Victor assured Abby that he loves her, but acknowledged that he's disappointed in her for her recent behavior. Just then, a reporter for a celebrity tabloid approached Victor and asked what he thought of his daughter's sex tape. Yikes! Victor was surprised to hear that Nikki knew about it. Abby pretended to be upset that her privacy had been invaded. Victor wanted to go after the person who made the tape. Abby was thrilled to have so many hits on her Web site.
Billy asked Victoria if she was serious about loving him. Victoria stammered as she replied that her feelings were just a "statement of fact." Billy invited her on a date and she accepted. He took her to a video arcade, which he had the manager make private, just for them. She looked forward to kicking his butt in skee ball. Later, they admired the photos they'd taken together in the photo booth. Billy surprised her with a reel of photos he took with him signaling, "I love you, too."
Heather and Chance met up with Pomerantz at the courthouse, shocked to learn that Skye was there. Heather promised to help Pomerantz fight against Adam. Chance asked if she was going to be okay facing her ex, but she was looking forward to it.... In the courtroom, Adam asked his lawyer, Abrams, if he could get him bail. Heather entered, ready for a fight. She told the court that Adam should not be granted bail and should finally be forced to stand trial. Abrams then stated that his client ran from town because Victor wanted to see Adam punished and Adam was just saving his own life. The lawyer then noted that Heather is a woman scorned who wants to go after Adam. The judge set the bail for $500,000, to Heather's chagrin. Adam happily thanked Skye for helping him out. She offered to post his bail, provided he give her something in return — he marry her. "We're the perfect match," she crooned. Heather angrily informed Adam that he can go. "You're disgusting," she seethed, reminding him how he hurt Ashley and Sharon. Heather vowed to make sure that he was convicted. Adam didn't think that she should be on the case because it was too personal for her. She replied that if she's taken off the case, she'll testify against him. Adam wasn't fazed. "Thank God, I found out what you are," she told him. Later, Skye brought a justice of the peace to Adam so they could wed right away. Adam thought back to his wedding to Sharon, but tied the knot with Skye.
Chance and Heather went to Crimson Lights, where he tried to calm her down. He wondered why Heather had picked Adam; she replied that Adam was "wounded" and she thought that she could see the real him. Chance still didn't get how she could go after a bad boy, noting that no one could ever change a person. Heather stated that she's learned her lesson. "It's too bad you're taken," she sighed.
Sharon went to the club and informed Victor and Nikki that Phyllis wants her apartment back. Victor was upset to hear of Nick and Phyllis's split. Adam and Skye then arrived at the club and Adam loudly introduced his wife, Skye.
At the hospital, Jill advised Cane to enjoy his impending parenthood. Cane admitted he was a little concerned about Jill changing her last name to Fenmore, but Jill had no worries. Lily came to the maternity ward, stating she needed to get out of her room, despite orders to rest.
At the arcade, Victoria noted that she and Billy said, " 'I love you.' Now what?" When Billy suggested dinner, Vicki called him insensitive. Just then, Jill called to give him an update on Lily. Billy asked to speak to Cane, and had a suggestion on how to get Lily's mind off things. Cane hung up and told Lily that he had a surprise for her.
Adam taunted Victor, Nikki and Sharon by presenting his new wife, Skye, at the GCAC for a champagne toast. Victor left to make a call. Things got even more tense when Nick showed up. Adam went to say hello and told Nick about his marriage. "Now both of us are going to have to cheat on our wives if we want to be with Sharon," Adam smugly stated. Sharon interrupted the men before things got out of hand, while Nikki told the bride and groom they deserved each other. Victoria and Billy showed up for dinner, and were shocked to see Adam out of jail. Nikki pulled Sharon aside and warned her to stay away from Nick and Phyllis during their separation. Sharon left in a huff. Victor returned, approached Adam and told him to get out. Adam refused to leave. Victor announced to entire room that Adam was disowned because he'sa lying, manipulative killer. He asked everyone to avoid contact with Adam at all costs. A rep from the club asked Adam to leave. Just then, Adam got a call and took off, leaving Skye behind.
At the boutique, Lauren met with (real-life) designer Jeremy Scott about carrying, "The Jeremy Scott line" in her store. Lauren was delighted with what she saw and signed Scott to a contract. He confessed that as a child, he wanted to be Neil Fenmore. As they reviewed her store display plans, Jill barged in, thrilled to meet Jeremy Scott. Then, Jill looked over Lauren's display plans and criticized them in front of the designer. Scott made an excuse to leave and Lauren assured him that her sister would not be interfering. Lauren returned and exploded, telling Jill that they are not sisters! Later, when Lauren was alone in the store, Lauren cussed out a photo of her father.
Cane took Lily to the arcade, where he had a pizza party waiting for her with family and friends in attendance. Lily was touched. As the gang played video games, Lily thanked Cane and said she was really enjoying herself. Mac, however, was feeling glum about giving up the twins. J.T. tried to comfort her, but she asked him to take her to see the babies. At the hospital, Mac said she thought she'd feel better by seeing them, but didn't. J.T. held her when she started to cry. They headed to Crimson Lights, but Mac's mood didn't improve.
Sharon returned to the GCAC dining room with the carriage and asked Nick to watch the baby while she went out. Nick agreed but was concerned with Sharon's behavior. Sharon went to church and sent a text message. A priest greeted her and suggested that she go to confession to feel better. Sharon took his advice, unaware that a stranger was nearby, lighting a candle and eavesdropping on her confession. Sharon told the priest she was conflicted about her feelings for a man.
Jill met with her lawyer to claim her half of the Fenmore estate. The lawyer said he had new info about Neil's will.... Victoria and Billy took a room at the club and quickly started losing clothing.... Skye ordered a martini, and Nick told his new sister-in-law that, "You get what you pay for." ... At church, Sharon said a prayer, then turned around to see Adam standing in the doorway.
Jack paid Sharon a visit and found Phyllis at the penthouse instead. Phyllis shared that she left Nick, and admitted that she hadn't told Summer about the separation yet. She was concerned about how the little girl would take the news. Jack wondered if she could give Nick another chance, but Phyllis was sure that Nick would always have feelings for Sharon. "I turned into somebody who I didn't even like," she sighed. She added that she wouldn't want Summer to ever be in the same situation that she'd been in and would tell her daughter to get out of the relationship. "I settled for so much less than I deserve," she said. Jack called her a "cockeyed optimist," noting that the tough-talking broad thing was all an act. He put his arm around her and promised Phyllis that he'll always be there for her. They then kissed, but Phyllis pulled away before things went further. Jack didn't want to mess things up with Emily, either, but confided that nothing is certain with him and the shrink. He reminded Phyllis that Nick loves her, but she explained that she never stopped feeling as if she were the mistress. She wished she could be in the future when things are better.
At the G.C.A.C., Nick taunted Skye about her new husband, Adam, not being with her. Nick hoped he wasn't with Sharon. But Adam was; he appeared at the church where she was, claiming he was seeking guidance. He believed that his marriage to Skye bothered Sharon and insisted that their union wasn't like what he and Sharon had. Again, he declared his love for Sharon, but she didn't want to hear it.
Tucker stopped by Ashley's and they discussed Adam being released from jail. Tucker invited Ash to move in with him so she'd be safe. She insisted that she's fine. Ashley added that though she's worried about Faith, she has to trust that Nick and Sharon are taking care of her. Tucker told her that he's blown away by her strength. He took her hand in his.
At Crimson Lights, Abby admonished Daniel for blowing her off. She complained about their Restless Style cover, but was pleased that her Web site was doing so well. Daniel called her a "naughty little girl," which she took as a compliment. Daniel acknowledged that this was also good for his art career and was glad that he'd taken the risk. He decided to paint the Naked Heiress after all, but Abby refused because her schedule was so packed. Daniel didn't know what to say. Abby later stopped by Ashley's and interrupted her mom's evening with Tucker. After, Ash and Tucker dined together and discussed their time together in Japan. He wanted to know what was going on with their relationship, but she wanted to see where it went.... Abby went to Daniel's place and offered to help him paint. She posed for him and he began to paint her, stopping midway to come over and kiss her.
At the club, Victoria awoke in Billy's arms. The phone rang, but he told her not to get it. She did, anyway, and it was Nick. He asked her to watch Faith and was surprised when she said that she was at the club. Nick brought Faith to her hotel room and Billy stepped away. Nick then told his sister that Adam is up to something and he wanted to check it out. Victoria advised him to stay away from Adam. Later, Billy very willingly changed Faith's diaper. He said that he now enjoys being around kids. Victoria admitted that she'd like another baby, but then amended that she didn't mean for them to have a child together.
At the ranch, Victor lamented to Nikki how messed up all of his kids' lives are. He wished they'd learned from their parents' mistakes, but Nikki pointed out that it took them decades to figure things out. Victor was happy to have Nikki back in his life again. They were about to head to the bedroom, when they got a call from Meggie. She showed up at their doorstep and said that she had nowhere else to go. Victor happily invited Meggie in and introduced her to Nikki. The Newmans promptly went to get her some food and a drink. Nikki asked if she was in trouble and Meggie collapsed.
Nick came by the church and confronted Adam, who taunted Nick about kissing Sharon in Brazil. Nick called him delusional. Sharon interrupted and told the men that she doesn't need either of them, then stormed out of the church. Nick warned Adam that if he makes Skye upset, he might lose the high-priced laywer whom she got for him. Adam taunted Nick about Sharon really loving him. Nick gloated that Sharon had used him to get Adam to come back to Genoa City. "Has she ever called my name while you were in bed with her?" Nick asked. Adam responded by punching him. Nick refused to fight back and accused Adam of setting up Hightower to be killed. Nick mentioned Hightower's son and thought it was awful that the kid had been so grateful to Adam for saving his dad's life.
Sharon picked up Faith from Billy and Victoria. She asked how Victoria felt about Billy exploiting the Newmans and Victoria said that she didn't like it. Billy saw Sharon out then kissed Victoria before an argument could ensue.
In a montage, Abby and Daniel kissed; Tucker and Ashley also smooched and began to undress each other; Billy chased Victoria around the hotel room, laughing and kissing. He then picked her up and carried her to the bed; Adam returned home to a furious Skye, who ripped off his shirt and tackled him onto the bed; Sharon smiled as she held Faith; Nick quietly sat down in the church and prayed; Jack kissed Phyllis on the cheek and left her apartment; Victor carried an unconscious Meggie upstairs.
At the GCAC, Nick apologized to Sharon for tracking her down at the church. He admitted to being worried about her safety. Then they fought about Adam, but decided to do it over breakfast. Upstairs in their room, Skye entered after meeting with Adam's lawyer. She ordered him to get up so they could start transforming his image. Adam said he wanted to lay low. Skye replied that she married him for the Newman name, and it was time they cleared his up. They headed downstairs and saw Nick, Sharon and the baby. The battling brothers had words. Skye advised Adam to keep his head held high. "I've got your back," she assured. As Sharon took the baby and left, Nick followed, and Skye whispered to Adam that they were about to enter the Hedge Fund business with, "The Newman Fund."
At the ranch, Nikki was apprehensive about welcoming Meggie into their home. Just then, Meggie came downstairs and said, "Good morning." Nikki was pleasant enough. Meggie explained how she was being harassed by thugs for helping Victor, but since there were no eyewitnesses to her being menaced, she left town for her own safety. Meggie apologized for showing up without warning and offered to leave. Victor insisted she stay, and Nikki went along with it. Meggie then had a sudden dizzy spell and went to lie down. Afterward, Victor called Michael and asked him to investigate Meggie's story.
At Crimson Lights, Kevin was short with Jana, and even more irritated to see Ryder with her. Kevin was curious how Ryder was able to afford a membership at the pricey GCAC, then Kevin sulked that if Jana wanted Ryder, she could have him. Ryder asked Jana if she felt like going to the movies. She said she'd go freshen up. Just then, a policeman showed up with a warrant for Ryder's arrest.
As Paul and Nina had breakfast at the GCAC, they marveled at the irony of her son protecting his daughter. Paul said that he felt better with Chance on the case. After a sweet kiss, Paul agreed to accompany Nina shopping, even though it was not his most favorite thing to do. Later, when they got home, Paul suggested a more recreational activity. They kissed again. Just as Paul and Nina started getting busy, Christine showed up at their door.
In their room, Chance and Heather anxiously waited for the phone to ring to hear about their impending search warrant. There was a knock at the door. It was Chloe, who arrived to pick a wedding date. Just then, the call came through: they got their warrant. Chance apologized for rushing off but Chloe said it was okay, even though she was clearly miffed. At the jail, Chance and Heather searched the prisoners' cells for drugs but they came up with nothing. Chance was determined to find whomever who was dealing drugs to the prisoners. Back at their room, Chance and Heather wondered who could have tipped off the guilty parties about the search. D.A. Pomerantz burst in and was furious. Chance accepted full responsibility for going after the warrant. Pomerantz barked that one more mistake like that and Chance would be out of a job, then he stormed out. Heather gave a dejected Chance a pep talk and called him, "The real deal." She professed that he was the best man she'd ever known. They hugged, slipped into a slow, deep kiss and reclined on the bed, unaware a bug had been planted in their room.
At Crimson Lights, Chloe watched as a perky blonde named Allison flirted with Kevin. He confessed that they had one date, but all he did was talk about Jana. Chloe advised him to go out with her again.
Nick followed Sharon to her room, and Sharon declared that she was leaving Genoa City. Nick was upset but Sharon promised Nick that he'd still be a part of Faith's life. Nick kissed Sharon on the cheek and told her to be safe, then left. In the hall, Nick got a phone call asking about Newman Enterprises going into the Hedge Fund business. Nick had no idea what the reporter was talking about.
Christine knocked on Paul's door, interrupting him and Nina. Paul opened his door and Christine was surprised to see her ex-husband — with Nina. After he stepped away, the ladies greeted each other and Christine questioned Nina about her relationship with Paul. Nina wondered if her friend was okay with it; Christina replied that she wanted Nina and Paul to be happy. Christine kept her cool and went on about Nina's son. Nina hoped that Chance's engagement to Chloe would end. Christine asked if Nina's "Hollywood life" was glamorous, but Nina said that it wasn't. Nina added that Chance is looking out for Heather. Christine mentioned how that probably made Paul feel relieved. Later, the women laughed as they reminisced about their '80s fashions.
At the ranch, Nikki asked Victor if he'd found anything out about Meggie's story. He replied that there were no witnesses to the shooting. Nikki questioned Victor about Meggie hitting on him in Canada and he tried to laugh it off. Victor insisted that he had no interest in the other woman. Just then, Meggie came downstairs and asked if her presence was causing any problems. Victor said that he was glad to have her there and promised to corroborate her story.
At the G.C.A.C., Jana asked the cops why Ryder was going to be arrested; they explained it was for grand theft and breaking and entering. They wanted to search the room for stolen goods, but Jana said that they didn't have her permission to do so. After they left, Jana went through the hotel room herself and found jewelry in the drawers.
Kevin told Chloe that he wouldn't get a spray tan, but she wanted him to at least look like he's happy. She wondered if she should go see if Chance was home, but Kevin urged her not to "stalk" her fiance. Instead, she left him a voicemail message, asking him to help fish one of Delia's toys out of the toilet. Kevin scoffed at the fib she'd told Chance. Meanwhile, Chance was in bed with Heather. After, he got Chloe's call and looked guiltily at Heather. "Things happen," she shrugged. "I don't think Chloe's going to see it that way," he said, planning to tell her the truth. Just then, Ronan came by and reamed them out for handling the case wrong and now having targets on their backs. Heather wondered if Ronan was a dirty cop who'd tipped off the inmates. Later, Heather called Pomerantz to discuss Ronan, unaware that she was being bugged and that Ronan was listening. She asked to have Ronan taken off the case, but Pomerantz refused.
Jana called Kevin and asked for his help. He agreed to meet her at Crimson Lights. Chloe went to follow him and found Chance at the door. They kissed.... At the coffeehouse, Jana informed Kevin that Ryder was wanted for stealing, but that she didn't know where he was. Kevin was furious and didn't want to lose his business since Jana used their money to get Ryder out on bail.... Chloe wanted to spend some quality time with Chance, but he wasn't eager to have sex with her. He admitted that he screwed up with the investigation and just wasn't in the mood. Chloe wanted to "distract" him. Chance declared his love for her and promised that the next day would be better. Later, Chance returned home and told Heather that he hadn't been honest with Chloe about their affair. Heather understood him wanting to protect Chloe's feelings and didn't think he had to tell her. However, Chance knew that he had to, eventually. They next discussed Ronan and how Heather believed that he was a dirty cop. Chance believed that Ronan had bugged the place.
Victor asked Paul to come to the coffeehouse and filled him in on Meggie's predicament and how to police weren't buying her story. He asked Paul to do a background check. Paul didn't think it was safe to keep a woman, who was either a con or in danger, at the ranch with Nikki. Victor stated that Nikki is his priority. Paul accused Victor of always putting himself first. Paul agreed to help with the case — but only for Nikki's sake.... Nikki approached Meggie to discuss the "rules" of staying at the ranch. The first rule: Victor was off limits. Meggie replied that Victor is a handsome man. Nikki said that she and Victor don't need any complications in their relationship. Meggie swore that she won't go after Victor and just doesn't want to get shot up like her bar. Later, Victor returned home and explained that he was having Paul check out Meggie's story. Nikki admitted that she wasn't sure that she could trust Meggie; Victor promised that she wouldn't be there for long. He then presented Nikki with a beautiful ring
Paul returned home and Nina graciously gave him some time alone with Christine. Cricket told Paul that she was glad to see him happy with Nina. She expressed her regret over Patty and asked how Paul's mother was dealing with it. Paul shared that Mary was devastated. Christine was pleased that Paul had finally forged a relationship with Heather. Before she left, Paul asked Christine if things were okay between them. "We are always okay," she assured him and left. Outside, Christine leaned against Paul's door for a moment, looking wistful. Nina later returned to Paul's and they talked about Christine. Paul assured Nina that Christine wasn't going to stake a claim on him.
Jana returned to the club and found Ryder looking for the jewelry. She told him that he can't run anymore, but he refused to go back to jail. He asked Jana to run away with him. "I need you," he whispered, kissing her. Jana agreed to go with him.... Kevin came home and was greeted by Chloe. He told her about Ryder being a crook and how he could lose his business, due to Ryder. He looked forward to finding Ryder and beating him up. Chloe shared that Chance had showed up and then left. She suspected that something was going on with her fiance.... Chance and Heather searched his place for bugs and loudly said that they didn't find anything. They then went into the hallway and acknowledged that there were indeed bugs there. Ronan made a call saying that they have to get rid of Chance.
Christine made a call to someone saying that she needed to let "her" know that she's in danger.... Victor proposed to Nikki as Meggie watched from upstairs.
