    Y&R Recap: Bashing Nikki.

    Thursday, May 28 2015

    Nikki wanders in a brightly lit space. A man calling himself Angel appears and gets her to recall what happened. She flashes back to her children bringing her to the ranch to discuss the merger. She's surprised to see that the whole family is there. Nikki assumes the Newmans are ganging up against the Abbotts and starts lecturing them until Dylan arrives. She guesses something else is going on. "An intervention? You think that's the answer?" she asks Victor. Before she can storm out, she runs into Yack. He escorts her out of the doorway. Her grandchildren beg her to listen. Victor tries talking Yack into leaving but Yack doesn't think it's what Jack would do. As everyone gathers around, Nikki admits that she drinks sometimes but they are really overreacting. She doesn't need to justify taking the edge off when her life is so full of stress. Neil's told himself those lies too. He reminds her that he killed Paul and Christine's baby because he couldn't face his problem. When he brings up her taking Walt back to her room, Nikki is furious. He threatens to walk away from her the next time she's in trouble. That's fine with her. Victor won't let her walk out. She feels like she's surrounded by jackals. Her children and grandchildren line up to talk about how much they care about her and how much it hurts to see her suffering. Nick reminds her that he already lost a daughter thanks to alcohol. Nikki feels like she's being judged. Victoria reminds her about dropping the baby. "Get help or I will never allow you around your grandchildren again," she warns. Nikki thinks she'll regret that and orders them to move along. Yack urges her to choose life. He's profoundly sad to see her wasting her life. None of this sounds right to Nikki. Victor worries about how this is affecting the family. She throws that back in his face and reminds him that he turned his back on her after the mess with Ian. He doesn't have anything to add. Neil encourages Victor to explain his feelings but Nikki has had her fill. "Let's turn this Nikki bashing into a real bash!" she declares, breaking out the booze. Victor asks her to stop for the sake of the grandchildren. "Shame on me!" she groans. The glass slips from her hands and she collapses.

    Nikki wanders the hospital. She finds her family in tears. Victoria insists that this was her mother's choice. Her children will only know the grandmother who drank herself to death. Nick cries and his sister embraces him. Nikki tries talking to them but they can't hear her. Dylan feels cheated and angry. The family files out in tears as Nikki pleads with them not to go. Suddenly, an orderly wheels a body past her. She gasps as she realizes what happened.

    Nikki visits the cemetery and watches her family and friends speaking at her grave. Dylan tells them all to focus on how much she loved them. Nick has realized how much they were alike. Victor grieves that he could never find the right words. He's left alone to sob. He thought that he could fix her but he failed because he didn't listen to her. He wishes that he'd told her what she meant to him. "I'm so damned lonely now," he says. After he shuffles off to a bench in tears, she looks at her grave. She sits with him. He thought their love would get them through everything. She tells herself that she needs to take responsibility for herself. Finally, she snaps out of it. She's in rehab talking to a counsellor named Angel. He tells her that she's had a moment of clarity that allowed her to admit she needed help. He thinks they can give that to her.

Neil wakes him up. Walt insists that she came on to him. Nikki flashes back to dragging Walt into her room. Neil kicks him out anyway and reminds her that she's married. "This is his fault!" she complains, blaming Victor. He tells her this is all her fault and she needs to be accountable. As he runs her a shower, she calls security. The guard escorts him out. She finds a bottle of vodka in the sheets and looks at herself with disgust in the mirror. In the dining room downstairs,Victoria tells Billy that Nikki is in denial. She wishes she could help her. Billy says she needs to want to help herself, that's the way addicts are. She's sure nothing good will come out of this considering all the meds her mom is on. He offers to help. Meanwhile, Nick helps Sage lotion up on the club's rooftop. He challenges her to go swimming and strips down to his trunks. After they swim, she admits that she's worried about what kind of mom she'll be. Nick tells her everyone makes mistakes and she won't be alone. He gets a call from his sister. They head downstairs and his sister fills him in about GC Buzz calling their drunken mother 'naughty Nikki'. Victor isn't doing anything and she's worried. Neil joins them to explain that Victor enlisted him to help. He's found a therapist to do an intervention but they have to do it immediately. The siblings head up to their mom's room and tell her they need to go to the ranch for dinner with Victor. She looks for excuses but after spotting the vodka bottle in the trash, they insist on taking her. Downstairs, Billy tells Sage about how she will one day be the mother to one of Victor's grandchildren. She doesn't think that she's in the same boat he was. He warns that what happened to Sharon, could happen to her too.

"If I was guilty of all the things you accuse me of, I'd be a very dangerous man," Yack says. Victor threatens him and wanders off. He runs into Neil and Nikki by the door. The mustache asks her about getting drunk last night. Neil won't lie for her and repeats that she needs help. She tells them both to go to hell and storms off. "Man oh man oh man of man," Victor grumbles. He decides that he needs to take 'harsh measures'. In the dining room, Yack and Phyllis have breakfast. They rehash how he wasn't being himself before.

She just needed some fresh clothes. Neil tries talking her out of going to the party. It could get ugly and she'd be caught in the crosshairs.
