Billy Makes an Astounding Decision After a Meeting With Amanda and Michael
Thursday, December 10, 2020: Today on The Young and the Restless, Lily makes an accusation, Summer's warning to Theo backfires, and Victor pays Adam a visit.
At Society, Lily joins Victor at the bar and talk turns to Billy taking a leave of absence from Chance Comm. Victor thinks she can run it herself and adds, “Good riddance.” Lily references the convenient evidence against him and wonders if Victor had something to do with it. Victor finds her loyalty commendable, though Billy doesn’t deserve it, and argues she has a thin hypothesis — the wheels of justice are turning. Lily feels it’s not justice if Billy’s innocent but Victor disagrees. He vows if Michael doesn’t see to it Billy pays, then he will. Across the room, Theo complains to Sally about the Abbotts trying to buy him off with an insignificant company nobody wants. He’s going to court and needs her to get more information. Sally won’t tie herself to a losing proposition and advises him to take the company and move to Paris. Theo taunts that she won’t be able to take on Victor Newman’s granddaughter without him.
At the courthouse, Michael meets with Amanda and Billy. He wants Billy to plead guilty to second degree attempted homicide so he’ll do less time. Michael explains they have a mountain of evidence against him. Amanda questions if the eyewitness actually saw Billy pull the trigger. Billy grunts if they did, they’re lying. Michael counters that the only person lying so far is him. Michael rants about how it will play out in court. Billy invites Michael to look him in the eye and tell him he believes he did it. Michael can’t do it. Billy accuses him of only looking for a big win and warns he’s not afraid of a fight — he has the truth on his side. Michael states the offer goes away at 5:00 PM and exits.
Chance carries Abby across the threshold at the Chancellor Estate where Chloe stands holding the screaming Miles. Chloe’s apologetic and assures them they’re moving out soon. Chance and Abby plan to start a family of their own. Chloe’s happy for them. Abby talks about their honeymoon while Chance squirms. Chloe assumes it’s because she’s his ex. Abby and Chance are enlisted to watch the baby, who starts crying the minute Chloe dashes out. Over the next while, Abby gets thrown up on and Chance deals with a poopy diaper. Once the baby’s settled, they look forward to raising their own children there.
At Crimson Lights, Summer briefs Mariah on the Jabot marketing job. Mariah asks what’s going on with her and Kyle. Summer bristles and informs her they’re working things out and won’t let anything — or anyone — get between them again. After, Summer spots Theo on the patio and confronts him about the lawsuit. Theo complains he is grieving too and lists the Abbotts’ transgressions against him. How does wanting his fair share make him a bad guy? Summer uses the cautionary tale of the time her father and his siblings sued Victor to try and dissuade him from moving ahead. Theo learns they won and is inspired. Summer explains Nick lived with regret and the money didn’t make him happy. Theo wouldn’t feel that way and thanks Summer for the confidence boost.
At Jabot, Sally and Jack go over the executive assistant position not being what she’d hoped for. Sally relays she encouraged Theo to accept their offer. Jack learns that Theo was insulted by their offer. Kyle arrives as Jack thanks her for the heads-up about Theo and leaves. Kyle lets Sally in on his history with Theo. She doesn’t blame him for not liking the guy and admits she pretended to be his friend. Kyle’s intrigued by her honesty. Sally reminds him she’s been upfront about wanting to move up and suggests herself for Summer’s old marketing job. Kyle explains the position’s been filled. Mariah appears and says, “By me.” Sally recognizes her from GC Buzz and says Jabot was lucky to grab her. Once outside, Sally’s smile turns to an angry frown.
