The Young and the Restless

The unusual collaboration between Chelsea and Victor to save Adam continues. They soon realize that for their plan to work, a member of the family is going to have to pick a side, and fast. While Victoria is announcing that there will be sweeping changes at Newman Enterprises, she isn’t the only one causing upset. Chance is taken aback by what Abby makes clear to him. She remains determined to get to the bottom of Phyllis’ new plan. Perhaps she should be asking Nick about it since he’s the inspiration behind it? Sharon is inspired to make it clear to those around her what the boundaries are if they want to interact with her. This seems to be especially pressing where Adam is concerned, but both Chelsea and Rey have some questions. Across Genoa City, Kyle and Theo try to put their latest conflicts to the side and work together. While things seem to be easing up for Theo, including with Lola, the same can’t be said for Kyle, who gets a warning from Nick. And Jack and Traci are desperate to get some answers.
