Phyllis Taunts Adam About Connection to a Chancellor Family Member
Friday June 21, 2019: On Young and the Restless today, Billy orders Adam away from Delia's grave, Victoria gets a huge surprise courtesy of her father, and Devon has a panic attack.
At home, Rey admires Sharon’s taste in wine. Talk turns to Adam – she wishes she hadn’t encouraged him to come home and told him so. Rey learns he agreed to stay away from her but wasn’t happy about it. He thanks her for taking a strong stance. Nick arrives to see Rey about Adam. He wants dirt for the custody trial and needs to know what Adam got up to in Vegas. Nick and Sharon know he’ll try to make the case he’s turned his life around. Rey realizes Nick needs recent evidence he hasn’t. Sharon leaves. Rey tells Nick about Adam’s associate, Riza. He’ll contact her.
At Delia’s grave, Billy asks Adam what the hell he’s doing there. Adam didn’t mean to intrude. Billy fumes – if there’s one place in the entire world he shouldn’t step foot in, this is it. Adam wanted to tell Delia he’s sorry she’s not with her family just as he’s not with his children right now. He recalls there was a time Billy thought he could forgive him. Billy says the pain he feels doesn’t go away and seeing Adam not even trying to be a better man compounds the tragedy. He orders him to get the hell out of there.
At Society, Devon tells Jack he’s missing Neil tonight. Traci and Cane chat with Jack and Mallory before Jack takes the stage to announce that the Abbott-Winters Foundation will use donations in Neil’s name to develop a treatment program for artists who face unique challenges getting sober. Traci compliments Jack afterward – she’s glad to see him socializing. Jack learns she came with Cane – he’s lucky to have her as a friend. After, Cane talks to Traci about pitching in on Jack’s treatment program. Suddenly, they notice Lily arrive. Devon and Elena greet her, followed by Jack and Mallory. Cane watches. Traci asks if he wants to say hello. He’s in no rush but keeps watching her. At the bar, Ana complains to Devon about hiring someone to babysit her. Devon snaps – did she forget what tonight is about? Elena chats with Lily, who’s happy Devon’s found someone special again. She updates Lily on the tension between Nate and Devon due to the penthouse sale. Traci goes over to hug Lily, who then chats with Cane about the dedication and learns he and Traci came together. Elena kisses Devon goodbye to take Jett to the airport. Outside, Cane finds Traci who is wrestling with her feelings through Velma. He takes her home.
At Newman Enterprises, Victor informs Victoria that Nikki thinks he should take some time off to focus on treatments. He’d like her to become CEO while he takes a leave of absence. Victoria worries his illness is worse than he’s letting on, but Victor’s merely facing the reality. Victoria, jubilant, vows to make him proud and thinks Adam did him a favor by walking away. Victor admires her integrity. They embrace. Victoria is working away when Billy arrives and gets up to speed. He congratulates her, then shares that Adam was at Delia’s grave. Billy warns Victoria to keep an eye on him. Victoria thinks she has a way to neutralize the threat. Billy goes to Victor’s office and tells him he approves of his choice. Victor wonders what makes him think he needs his approval. Billy vows to support Victoria. Victor hopes he doesn’t self-destruct halfway through. Billy was going to say the same about him.
At Crimson Lights Adam tells Sharon his day’s going terrible. He reveals he’s moving back into the penthouse since Victor evicted him, then updates her he stopped by Delia’s grave and ran into Billy. Sharon’s sorry and offers to lend an ear. He promised not to involve her in his drama, so leaves.
At Nick’s place, Victoria tells her brother Dad made her CEO. He sneers she got everything she wanted. Victoria wants Nick as COO and points out the power it would give him against Adam, whose fatal flaw is overconfidence. They’ll corner him and push him to the brink to show the court he doesn’t deserve to raise Christian.
At the penthouse door, Adam flashes to Chelsea and Connor, then enters. Phyllis comes down the stairs. “Hi there. Long time no see.” She complains about the hellhole he had her stashed in and tells him she knows more about him now – she went to Vegas. He accuses her of bluffing. She alludes to his connections in Vegas…especially to a certain member of the Chancellor family.
At home, Sharon neglects to tell Rey she saw Adam and says she’s glad to be home with the man she loves.
In his penthouse, Devon sees Hilary walk in, but it’s actually Elena. He has a panic attack. She scrambles to get his pills as he struggles to breathe.
Victor, with Nikki, tells Nick, “The treatments I’m getting are no longer working. Apparently, there’s a new drug they’re experimenting with…” Nick says, “It sounds like this is your best bet to beat the disease,” but Victor warns, “The side effects…”
