Young and Restless Recaps
Y&R Week of August 30, 2010
Jana went to Crimson Lights looking for Kevin, but he wasn't there yet. While she waited for him, she regarded the Restless Style cover featuring Kevin and Chloe and tore it in half. Meanwhile, Kevin asked Gloria why she hired Deacon as the bartender for Gloworm; Glo explained that the ladies love Sharpe. Chloe arrived and showed Kevin the magazine cover. "We are adorable!" she trilled. After, they talked about Jana and Chloe advised him to not hold off on divorcing his estranged wife. Kevin read over the divorce papers and Gloria also urged him to sign. After, Chloe went to the coffeehouse, where she was confronted by Jana. Chloe didn't want to discuss Kevin with her, but denied being with Kevin romantically. Jana lamented ever leaving him and broke down. Chloe awkwardly tried to comfort her.
At the trailer, Billy and Victoria kissed. She noticed his unfinished tattoo and implored him to cover up the "Victor" if he was going to go out. Their teasing was interrupted when Gloria called to tell them that their home was ready. Victoria wanted to rush over there, but remembered that she had to meet Nikki. Billy asked if she planned to tell her mother about the house; Victoria did intend to share the news, and didn't care what Victor thought.
At the Newman Ranch, Nikki confided to Victor that she has the urge to drink and doesn't know what triggered it. She decided to talk to Katherine about it. Meanwhile, Meggie flashed back to having Nikki's drink spiked and smiled as she overheard the conversation. Later, Victoria went to the ranch where she and Nikki looked at old family photos. Victoria informed her that she and Billy are moving into a new house together. Nikki obviously wasn't pleased, but tried to be supportive. Vicky then added that they actually bought the house together; Nikki suggested that they were moving too fast. Victoria shrugged that if things didn't work out, they could just sell the house, but Nikki reminded her that things are complicated when kids are involved. Still, Victoria was ready to take a chance in her life.... Victor ran into Billy at the G.C.A.C gym and questioned him about the Victor tattoo and what it meant. "Because I love you, Big Guy, that's why," Billy cracked. Billy then explained that it was supposed to say, "Victoria" and Victor struggled not to laugh. Later, Victoria and Billy filled each other in on their respective meetings with Nikki and Victor. They were encouraged by Victor laughing at Billy, but Victoria warned that her dad could be waiting to go in for the kill. A tough-looking tattooed guy later came by the trailer, explaining that Victor had sent him over to finish Billy's ink. Both were pleased with the end result and were hopeful that Victor was coming around to the idea of their romance.
Ashley and Jack discussed Adam's lawsuit. His plan was to get Skye away from Adam to see if he could work her. Ashley wanted to deal with Adam, but Jack implored her to stay away from him. Ashley didn't want to be the victim once again, though, and headed over to the club. Skye advised Adam not to sue Jack since Jack was one of the investors in their hedge fund, but Adam insisted on suing Abbott.
Jack arrived at Gloworm just in time to hear Gloria tell Kevin that Billy and Victoria purchased a house from her. Jack reminded Glo that she owes him money. Jack then met Skye there and asked her how Victor got Adam to drop the lawsuit against the Newmans. Skye replied that she wouldn't talk unless there was something in it for her. Jack promptly called his investors and told them about the Newman Fund. Skye revealed that she was the one who got Adam to drop the suit..... Ashley paid Adam a visit at the club and asked why he wanted her money. Adam replied that he was trying to salvage his reputation. Ashley accused him of killing her daughter and stated that she's not the same woman he'd tricked. "You're not gonna sue me!" she yelled. "I'm gonna find out what Victor has on you and I'm gonna nail your ass to the wall." Adam denied that Victor has anything on him. Jack called his sister and asked her to meet him at Gloworm.... Victor angrily slammed a punching bag as he thought about Adam and Ashley. He called Ashley and asked to speak with her as soon as possible.
Kevin arrived at the coffeehouse and a relieved Chloe left so he could talk to Jana. Kevin nervously handed her the divorce papers; Jana broke into tears and hurried out of Crimson Lights. Kevin followed her outside and placed the papers in front of her. Jana pleaded for another chance, but Kevin refused. To make his point, he signed the papers right then and there — and then gave Jana his pen. Jana sobbed and pulled him into an embrace, but he pulled away. "Good-bye," he said gently, kissing her hand. Later, Kevin told Chloe that he signed the papers. He wanted to be alone, but Chloe insisted on keeping him company. She made him smile when she called him a "supermodel," thanks to their cover. Jana spied them laughing together and became upset.
Meggie looked over Nikki's family photos as Nikki confessed that her maternal instincts kept her out of a lot of trouble. Nikki continued to fight her urge to drink. Meggie offered Nikki a smoothie which she spiked with alcohol. Nikki eagerly drank up.
Skye returned to the club and told Adam about her meeting with Jack. She warned that if her husband didn't drop the suit against the Abbotts, she'd tell Jack everything.... At Gloworm, Jack and Ashley discussed the suit. Victor joined them and Jack shared that he knows how Victor got Adam to drop the suit against the Newmans. Victor revealed that Skye had written a phony diary. Ashley stepped away, but Jack refused to thank him. Victor replied that he told the truth for Ashley's sake. The men spied Victoria and Billy chatting with Gloria about the house and Jack informed Victor that they were moving in together. Victor congratulated the pair. Victoria asked her dad to not cause a scene, but all Victor did was ask how Billy's tattoo turned out. "That's it?" his daughter asked. Victor shrugged that he wasn't going to waste his energy on them. "Tattoo?" Jack asked, then wished them luck with the house. Billy was pleased that Victor had let them off so easily, but his calm demeanor made Victoria nervous.
Ashley stormed into Adam and Skye's suite and confronted them about the fake journal. "I am not gonna rest until I take everything away from you just like you tried to do to me!" Ashley warned.
At Crimson Lights, Phyllis gleefully created a new blog: The Homewreckers Of Genoa City.
At the Newman ranch, Nikki continued to fight the urge to drink. Finally,
she poured herself some booze and shakily lifted the glass to her lips.
Nikki then suddenly woke up from her dream to find Meggie standing over her
and realized she had dozed off on the couch. Meg offered to whip up a banana
smoothie but Nikki said she had somewhere to be and rushed out. Acting like
the mistress of the manor, Meggie made herself at home. "Cheers, lover," she
smiled to Victor's framed photo.
Nikki encountered Ashley in the sauna at the spa, where the ladies discussed
Victor. They actually exchanged pleasantries as Ash acknowledged that Nikki
shares a very special bond with Vic and wished her former rival every
happiness... as Phyllis listened nearby.
Lauren arrived at her office to find Jill had set up shop. Lauren suggested
Jill get her own office but Jill noted that their father's will entitled her
to half of everything that is Fenmore, which also means Lauren's office.
Frustrated, Lauren headed to the spa but Jill soon showed up there, too and they irritated each other throughout their spa
At the spa, Victoria and Mac ran into each other while doing yoga. It was a
tad awkward but the tension increased when Chloe showed up and noticed
Victoria's tattoo. Chloe warned the tat was a big mistake since Billy, "the
man whore," would most likely dump Victoria soon. Mac jumped to Victoria's
defense, while Phyllis eavesdropped.
At Crimson Lights, Heather asked Chloe to convince Chance to stop
investigating the drug ring. Chloe pointed out that she is no longer wearing
Chance's ring and Heather observed that Chloe has the hots for Ronan. Each
gal sniped at the other's behavior and there was Phyllis, taking in the
confrontation. After Heather walked away, Chloe left Ronan a message that
she wanted to see him.
Still at the spa, Ashley was surprised to hear from Victoria that she and
Billy bought a house together. Victoria rhapsodized about her "incredible
future" with Billy. Later, Abby came along and dissed her mom for all the
wrong choices she made with men. Abby declared she will never let a man
control her and Ashley admitted that she finally adopted that same attitude
but remains open to love.
Phyllis encountered Sharon in the park, where Phyl groused at Sharon for
playing house with Nick. Sharon explained that she moved into her old house
on the ranch but Nick was staying at the club. Phyllis then tattled that she
saw Nick kissing a mysterious blonde at Jimmy's. Sharon remained calm, which
only peeved Phyllis.
Nikki showed up at the Chancellor estate and lamented to Katherine that she
felt the overwhelming need to drink. Nikki wondered if it was her
subconscious warning her not to marry Victor. Kay assured Nikki that she can
have Victor and her sobriety. Nikki returned to the ranch and asked Meggie
to make her a smoothie.
All the ladies watched as Jill and Lauren argued loudly at the spa.
Everyone then received a notification on their cells about Phyllis's new
blog. Phyllis walked in as the gals were reading entries of her blog out
loud. They all gave Phyllis a piece of her mind and walked out on her one by
one. Later, we watched an unidentified woman's hand pick up a home pregnancy
Victoria and Billy settled into their new home. She remarked that their place needs kids and lamented that Reed is growing up fast — and that she seems to be missing it. Meanwhile, J.T and Mac helped Reed get ready for school.
At Crimson Lights, Esther took a photo of Kevin, Chloe and Delia. Jana arrived in time to see them posing for the picture and Kevin explained that it was Delia's first day at nursery school. Jana shared that she hadn't found a new job. He asked if she'd signed the divorce papers yet, but she hadn't. After, Jana went for a job interview and suggested that she volunteer for a week and if she does well, she gets hired. The interviewer, Liza, agreed to give Jana a chance.
At the coffeehouse, Meeks instructed Ronan to be in place for a drug score. Heather arrived and they lied that they'd been discussing baseball, but she didn't believe it. They discussed the case and Ronan wished that Chance would let things go. Heather noted that he and Chance are a lot alike in that they don't give up. Ronan feared that Chance was going to get himself killed. Heather wished Ronan would leave town, but he grabbed her arm and demanded that she help him. Heather shoved him away and angrily huffed that he can't push her around. Ronan explained that he needed her assistance with his investigation, but she stated that she's on Chance's side. She threatened to tell Chance what Ronan was up to, then tried to slap him, but Ronan grabbed her arm before she could do so.
At the Chancellor Estate, Chance assured Nina and Phillip that the drug mess would be cleared up. Phillip asked if his son could reunite with Chloe when the case was over, but Chance wasn't sure. Nina said that though she doesn't like Chloe, she wants him to be happy. Paul arrived and Nina informed them, as well as Jill, Kay and Murphy, that Paul has a lead on her missing son's whereabouts. Paul explained that they got an old photo of the boy and he was going to have it enhanced to see what he'd look like now. Kay warned that Nina might not find him to be the way she expects. Nina replied that she just wanted to know that he's okay, but hoped that she could have a future with both of her sons. She looked forward to "seeing" what her son would look like.
Victoria and Billy went to the coffeehouse and ran into Chloe. They informed her that they were moving into their new house. Chloe made a crack about how Delia is like her father because she doesn't have a long attention span. Reed and J.T entered and the little boy was thrilled to see his mom. Victoria told her son that he'd be spending a lot of time in her new home, but J.T didn't look happy.
Gloria visited Kevin at Crimson Lights and blasted Jana for his financial problems. Kevin felt badly for his ex, but admitted that he didn't know what to expect from her. Glo offered him a position at Gloworm.... Esther, Chloe, Billy, Victoria and J.T took Reed and Delia to school. After, the kids were introduced to their new art teacher: Jana. Mac and J.T were surprised to see her there, but noted that sometimes life takes you in surprising directions. Later at home, J.T gave Mac a present: towels. He then invited her to join him in the shower.
Billy and Victoria returned to their home. He went to get the camera and planned to take a lot of pictures of their life together. Billy then found a box for a pregnancy test and questioned her about it. She nervously replied that she was going to tell him, but didn't want them to get their hopes up. She went to take the test, but when she came downstairs, he was gone.... Billy went to Jimmy's and downed a drink.
Esther picked up Delia from the school. Jana asked if Esther was there because Chloe was busy with Kevin, but Esther didn't answer her. Jana then called Kevin, but he didn't pick up. Kevin agreed to accept Gloria's job offer.
Chance paid Chloe a visit at Kevin's place and declared his love for her. She said that while she knows that he's sincere in his apology, she can't take him back. "I know I'm not gonna be your last. But I'm really glad to know that I was your first," she told him. He left, but left his phone behind. Chloe learned that he was getting calls from a reporter at the Examiner. Chance returned to get his phone and Chloe questioned him about the calls. Chance revealed that he's going to tell the magazine everything about the dirty cops. Chloe feared that he'd lose his life, but Chance didn't care. After, Heather returned home and found Chance waiting for her. He informed her that he and Chloe have officially ended things. He then shared his plan to bust the case open. Heather begged him not to do it, but he insisted. They kissed passionately and he then left.... Chloe asked Ronan to meet her at Crimson Lights. They made small talk about why he wasn't in a relationship. He wanted to know why she really wanted to meet with him and reminded her that she could trust him. Later, Heather went to see Chloe at Kevin's place and asked if Chloe knew where Chance was. Chloe didn't want to answer her, but Heather warned that he was in trouble.... Chance lurked in an alley behind Jimmy's. Heather called Ronan and reported that she knew where Chance was.
Victor entered Crimson Lights while talking on the phone to Jack. He asked if Jack, who was at Gloworm, had made any progress on their plan against Adam and Skye. Jack promised that he's working on it. After, Jack and Abby discussed how she can get to her trust fund money. Vance arrived and Jack explained that he called the lawyer. Abby didn't want to use Vance because of how he'd treated Ashley on the stand. Vance assured her that Ashley wouldn't be named in the lawsuit, but warned that the case would get a lot of publicity. Abby was intrigued. He showed her some documents and revealed that there's been a loss in her funds. She agreed to use him as her lawyer after all.
Victor ran into Ashley and Tucker at the coffeehouse and warned that he's going to protect Beauty Of Nature at all cost. Tucker planned to ramp up their attack against Newman. Ashley suggested that they use J.T to help them. After, Victor went to Gloworm and wondered what Vance was doing with Abby. Abby lied that the attorney hit on her. Victor seemed doubtful and warned that whatever she's planning to do, Vance does not have her best interest in heart. "Do not cross me again," he threatened.
Chance went to a warehouse and looked around.... Chloe asked Heather whom she'd told about Chance's whereabouts and concluded that Heather had been speaking with Ronan.... Ronan went to the warehouse and looked for Chance. Meeks followed and a jumpy Ronan almost shot him. He assured Meeks that he has everything covered, but Meeks wasn't so sure and grabbed his gun. They overheard Chance talking to someone and went to check it out; turns out, it was just a recording. Meanwhile, Chance hid in his car and photographed them at the warehouse. Meeks realized that they were being watched and was furious. He planned to take care of their "Chancellor problem."
At home, Victoria wondered where Billy had disappeared to. J.T soon arrived with Reed, who gave his mom a picture he drew. She planned to hang it on the fridge. J.T looked around and scoffed that this is where she and Billy were "playing house." He then asked where Billy was. Billy was busy getting drunk at Jimmy's bar and babbled about having another baby. Mac cut him off and asked if he was really going to be a father again. Billy replied that he doesn't yet know and that he bailed on Victoria. Mac literally grabbed him and ordered him to return home to Victoria.... Victoria had Reed check out his new room and J.T questioned her about her relationship with Billy. She assured him that he'd be back. J.T stated that they were irresponsible for buying a new home when they didn't know where their relationship was headed. She was just happy to be moving on with her life. Later, Victoria was playing with Reed outside when Billy stumbled home. He hesitated for a moment as he watched them playing together and was then visited by John's ghost. John asked if he loves Victoria and Billy responded that they want different things. "Can you imagine me and Victoria in the burbs with kids?" Billy asked. "Nothing wrong with Father Knows Best," John replied. Billy wasn't sure that he was cut out for that kind of life, but John believed that Billy was disappointing himself. John recalled how scared he'd been when Jill became pregnant with Billy, but added that nothing compared to hearing his children say they loved him. "Are you ready to find happiness with someone you love?" John asked. He urged Billy to go after her.
J.T met with Ashley and Tucker, and they asked him to spy on Newman Enterprises for them. J.T agreed to the job, provided that Tucker guaranteed that he'd be protected. Later, Jack ran into them at the coffeehouse and Ashley informed him that J.T is on board. When Ash stepped away, Tucker asked if Abby was moving forward with the lawsuit and was concerned about how Victor would react. Jack assured him that Abby is a tough girl. After, Tucker and Ashley went to Gloworm, where they encountered Victor. He told Ashley that he spied Vance with Abby. Vance soon arrived and served Victor with the papers for Abby's lawsuit. Victor wasn't fazed, but Vance was confident that he could win. Ashley called Vance disgusting. Victor read the papers and concluded that Jack put their daughter up to this.... Abby met with Jack and feared that Victor would retaliate. Jack reminded her that she has the right to control her own money.
Chance visited Chloe and accused her of tipping off Ronan. She swore that she didn't tell him, but he didn't believe her. He didn't care and said that he now had the proof to put Ronan and Meeks away. Chance then went through her cell phone and saw that she'd called Ronan. Chloe became angry and suggested that he get in Heather's face instead of hers.... Ronan and Meeks had a meeting at Jimmy's, where Meeks stated that the boss wanted them to take out Chancellor.... Chance confronted Heather about blabbing to Ronan and she admitted to it. He was disappointed that she broke his trust. Heather insisted that she'd never do anything to hurt him. "Have faith in me," she pleaded. "That's the problem; I don't," he bitterly replied. "Without trust, we have nothing.".... Ronan went to see Chloe and she pointed out that he doesn't seem to be able to form a connection with anyone. Ronan was ready to leave and she called him a coward. He grabbed her and kissed her, and they fell to the couch.
Mac and J.T returned home and he told her about his job offer. She was wary about him taking it....Victoria called out for Billy when she went back inside their house. Billy entered and she remarked that he smelled like a brewery. He cut her off and asked if he could say something to her. "You are my girl and any child of yours would be amazing," he stated. "I want the kids, I want the house ... I want the whole life," he continued. He then got down on his knee and asked her to marry him.
At the ranch, Victor made a call regarding Abby's lawsuit. Nikki overheard and was concerned about him alienating another child, namely Victoria, and advised him to meet his daughter halfway. Victor refused to back down on his disapproval of Billy. Nikki grabbed the photo album and showed him old pictures of Victoria in order to remind him how he shouldn't turn his back on her. Victor planned to win her back with tough love, but Nikki argued that their daughter is the happiest she's ever seen her. Victor feared that Billy would ruin her life. Nikki pointed out that this is a reason for him to stay close to her so that he's there when Victoria needs him.
At their home, Billy got down on his knee and proposed to Victoria, but she didn't answer. She requested that he ask her again and then said yes. "I'm gonna like calling your Mrs. Abbott again,” he told her. "I'm gonna love calling you Mr. Newman again,” she replied. They agreed that having a traditional church wedding would be boring. He then asked if she's pregnant and they looked at the pregnancy test together. The result? Positive! Realizing she'd left the test out for too long before reading it. Victoria took the test again; as they waited for the results, Billy admitted that he wants to be a father again. Later, as Victoria went to check the results, Victor and Nikki stopped by. Just then, a thrilled Victoria then came back downstairs and announced that she is indeed pregnant.
Chloe and Ronan had sex at her place. "I shouldn't have done it,” Ronan said when they'd finished (ouch!), then explained that he can't get involved with anyone. He vowed that it wouldn't happen again and planned to leave town as soon as possible. She urged him to stay since he has family in Genoa City. They ended their conversation when Kevin returned and Ronan quickly headed out. Kevin comforted Chloe when she began to cry that something is wrong with her. She lamented jumping into bed with Ronan. Kevin asked if she was trying to get back at Chance, but she didn't know why she did it. "I think you're kind of amazing,” Kevin told her and suggested she find someone else to give her heart to. Chloe explained that she knows stuff about Ronan that no one else knows and that she can't stop thinking about him. She thanked Kevin for being such a great friend.... Chance continued to rail against Heather for telling Ronan of his whereabouts. Heather replied that she just wants Chance to be safe, but he kept on yelling and yelling.
Nina met up with Paul at Crimson Lights. He told her that the enhanced photo of her son should be arriving soon, but warned her that aging a child by computer isn't an exact science. Nina promised to be realistic in her expectations. He added that they might not ever find her kid. After, Paul visited Heather and found his daughter crying. She filled him in on her fight with Chance. She was frustrated that she had to keep Ronan's secret because it was ruining her life. Paul urged her not to expose the investigation, noting that she could put a lot of people in danger. He realized that she's in love with Chance and she confirmed it. Heather just wanted to get her life back. Paul then got a call from his friend about the enhanced photo of Nina's son. Before heading out, Paul advised her to think about the consequences of blowing Ronan's cover.
Ronan went to the coffeehouse and found Nina there. He implored Nina to get Chance to back off for his own protection, but Nina refused. Ronan continued to insist that she get Chance to leave town. She replied that he'd better get used to having Chance around. Just then, Chance interrupted and demanded to know why he was talking to his mother. He warned Ronan that he spied Ronan with Meeks and has the proof that they're dirty cops. Ronan just laughed at him and told him to leave town. Chance said he wasn't going anywhere. Ronan then dug in the knife and shared that he'd slept with Chloe. Nina pulled them apart before a fight could break out. Chance stormed out. Meeks approached Ronan and said that he couldn't wait until Chance was taken out. Ronan didn't think it was a good idea and asked to meet Meeks' boss. Later, Chance paid Chloe a visit and called her "nuts” for sleeping with Ronan. Kevin asked Chance to leave, but Chloe was willing to talk to her ex. Chance warned her how dangerous Ronan is; Chloe replied that there are things about him that Chance doesn't know. He demanded to know what she knew... Kevin picked up Delia for Chloe and planned to do something to make his roomie feel better..... Chance gave Chloe a speech about how he didn't want the people he cared about to lose their lives because of Ronan. Chloe gave in and revealed that Ronan is Chance's brother.... Heather called Pomerantz and asked him to meet with her.... Nina and Paul met at the coffeehouse again, where she went on about how much she dislikes Ronan. Paul then opened the e-mail containing the enhanced photo of Nina's son and their eyes widened.... Ronan and Meeks went to the alley to meet Meeks's boss -- Pomerantz! Ronan requested that he not kill Chance. Pomerantz scoffed at him and stated that Chancellor needs to die -- and ordered Ronan to do the killing. Ronan promised that he'd get the job done.
