Y&R Recap: Devon Learns Hilary Isn’t Pregnant
Monday May 7, 2018: Nick and Sharon argue about her dishonesty, Jack prepares to screen his mother's film, and Victor continues to demand hard evidence.
At the house, Nick questions Sharon about the night that JT disappeared. When she’s unhelpful, he threatens to call his sister, but she snatches the phone away. Sharon doesn’t want him stressing Victoria out and insists there is no conspiracy afoot. They debate what could have happened and she lectures him for grilling her. He reminds her that she’s kept secrets from him for years. That hurts her feelings. Nick points out she has a habit of lying to people and catalogues the lies she’s told him. All of that tells him that she’s never trusted him enough to be honest. Sharon insists that she’s changed. He’s confused about how much time she’s been spending with Phyllis and Victoria. It’s really weird. Sharon lays into him for all the times that he’s cheated on her and then says she never holds his past mistakes against him. She accuses him of projecting based on his anxieties about JT. They keep bickering and she tells him to stop trying to rescue people. She storms off and he takes a walk. They come together again. He won’t drop this. He’s sure that she’s deflecting. Sharon claims that she wants him and her nerves are on fire. They kiss.
Devon sits with Hilary in the doctor’s waiting room. He’s determined to be by her side for everything happening with the baby. She suggests he must have more pressing things to do but he wants to do right by her and the baby. This is the biggest thing that’s ever happened to him. Hilary is about to tell him the truth when Dr. Chasen interrupts. The doctor is glad Hilary’s partner is there to give her support during the insemination. Devon guesses she’s not pregnant. Sensing some upset, the doctor leaves them alone and Hilary explains she only thought she was pregnant. Hilary tears up and tells Devon her excuses. The few days she thought she was pregnant were the happiest days she ever had. If he can’t forgive her, she’ll understand. Devon says she shouldn’t have lied to him, yet he believes her. She vows never to deceive him again and offers to have his sample destroyed. He tells her not to do that if she wants to go ahead. She’s thrilled that he’s willing to commit. This probably means that Simone will break up with him, but he wants to be a father. When Dr. Chasen returns, they tell her that the procedure is going ahead. Hilary goes in for the procedure and it all goes well. She comes out and tells Devon about it and he offers to drive her home, repeating that they are in this together.
