Young & Restless Weekly Preview: Lily Gets A Surprising Offer From [Spoiler]
Abby continues to hold out hope for Chance.
In a Young & Restless preview for the week of November 8 – 12, Adam tries to scoop Lily up. Read on for the details and watch the teaser video.
Adam, working with Victor and Ashland, set a trap to take down Billy once and for all. Billy was set up to believe Gaines had gone missing again, and later the grifter turned up on Billy and Lily’s doorstep begging them to hide him as he was in danger. He also spun a tale about how he not only wanted to take down Ashland but Victor and Adam as well for their locking him up in Italy. Lily had her doubts about his story, but Billy wouldn’t be swayed and Lily was appalled that Billy was going to use Gaines to blackmail Victor and company. Next week it appears Billy falls into Adam’s trap, and Adam makes Lily a job offer.
Sutton tried to talk Amanda out of testifying against, as Michael asked her to. He begged her to think how this would affect Naya and Imani, especially if it meant him dying in prison. However, Amanda wouldn’t be swayed or taken in by her grandfather. After taking the stand, she asks Michael if her grandfather might actually be convicted for her father’s murder.
Finally, after identifying Chance’s wedding ring, it seemed that Chance truly had been lost. Victor and Ashley came together to support Abby, who began to spiral into a full-on breakdown. She refused to believe Chance was dead without a body. In the latest preview, Abby tells Christine she’s going to Spain and to the safehouse to figure out what really happened to her husband.
Be sure to read the Young & Restless spoilers to find who receives a puzzling message. And with the possibility that Chance could still be alive, check out our gallery of Chance Chancellor over the years.

<p>Back in the 1980s, when Phillip “Chance” Chancellor was but a gleam in <em>Young & Restless</em> co-creator William J. Bell’s eye, Nina Webster waged a losing battle with bestie Christine Williams for the heart of Jill Abbott’s son, Phillip “No Chance” Chancellor. How futile were Nina’s efforts to win him? Pretty damn. For one thing, as you can see, it was the erstwhile Cricket’s milkshake that brought all the boys to the yard — including her future husband, rock star Danny Romalotti. For another, Phillip turned out to be gay and faked his own death rather than live his truth.</p>
<p>Following Phillip’s (cough) “demise,” Nina stole away boy toy Ryan McNeil from Victoria Newman. So Chance grew up thinking of the Casanova as his father — or at least his father <em>figure</em>. And when Ryan was killed by a subsequent wife, his death wasn’t in air quotes.</p>
<p>After spending his awkward adolescent years away from Genoa City, Chance returned in 2009 a hunky Iraq War veteran (played by <em>Guiding Light</em> alum John Driscoll). Mind you, he wasn’t in town to show everybody how hot he’d turned out; Dad had just come back from the dead. If <em>that</em> doesn’t call for a drop-in, what does?</p>
<p>In fact, Chloe Mitchell <em>was</em> smitten with Chance. But she was so determined to hang on to babydaddy Billy Abbott that she tried to set him up with Mac Browning… who of course was Billy’s true love. At least back then, she was.</p>
<p>All it took was Chance being stabbed and nearly dying for Chloe to admit her real feelings for him. He even agreed to lose his virginity to her. Of course, no sooner had they become engaged than he cheated on her with Heather Stevens — despite striking a pose that said, “No. No. A <em>hundred</em> times, no. I will <em>not</em> waiver and get jiggy with you, madam.”</p>
<p>While Chance was making his way through the womenfolk of Genoa City, so was his surprise half sibling, Ronan Malloy. As you can see, the fellas got along like… like wrestlers? Let’s just say that they were not what you’d call pals.</p>
<p>Everyone was super duper shocked when Chance confessed to holding enough heroin to make a Wisconsin blizzard look like a light dusting. Everyone was super duper shocked all over again when he was accidentally shot and killed by Ronan. Everyone had every reason to be shocked. Why?</p>
<p>Chance was no likelier to hold heroin than he was a woman’s hand during his virginal days. He’d only “confessed” in hopes of sniffing out the <em>real</em> guilty party. And as for his death, it was only a “death,” as Nina discovered when she noticed how warm the corpse’s hands were. And how upright he was. And how he talked back.</p>
<p>When Chance re-upped in the military, grandma Jill, sorta grandma Katherine… a whole lotta people were so ticked off that they blamed his girlfriend, Heather. What they didn’t know was that he was secretly working with Ronan to bring down Cane Ashby’s conniving father, Colin Atkinson. “Was that <em>Heather’s</em> idea?” Jill would’ve muttered, had she been clued in.</p>
<p>Upon returning to Genoa City, Chance (then Donny Boaz) “helped” Abby Newman pursue the suspicious someone who kept robbing patrons of her hotel. He knew all along that it was her but played dumb so that he could keep flirting with the blonde bombshell. She was, we would soon discover, The One.</p>
<p>No, the vows that Chance (then Justin Gaston) exchanged with Abby did not include any lyrics from <em>Grease</em>. But the two of them <em>were</em> united in holy matrimony in high style… just in time for him to be called away on a top-secret assignment and leave his bride behind to make a baby on her own.</p>
<p>To start her family with Chance, Abby recruited friends Mariah Copeland and Devon Hamilton. Nine months and one fraught kidnapping later, into the world plopped lil’ <span style="text-decoration: line-through">Bowie</span> Dominic.</p>
<p>Once Abby became basically a single mom, she waited and waited for Chance to return. She listened to on-hold music and snuggled with adorably shaped blankets. But what she <em>really</em> wanted was her husband back. The road home would not be smooth for Chance, though — and that was if he even got the opportunity to take it!</p>
