Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for Thursday, December 16, 2021 episode, which airs in the USA Friday, December 17. (Recaps live by 5:45 PM EST daily.) In the previous episode, Sally was revealed as the mystery woman. In this episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, Adam puts Sally on the spot, Chelsea decides it’s time to make a decision, and Lily gets a surprise at home from Billy.

Sally asks if Adam’s asking if she knows who is sending him the anonymous videos of Billy “acting like a jerk in public.” She thinks he’s really asking if she’s sending the videos. Adam shrugs. It seems like something she’d do. Sally claims she’s turned over a new leaf. He doesn’t believe that. “There’s a part of you that likes to go rogue,” he says. She thinks he should value that trait. He does. But not when it goes against his best interests.

She asks him how he’d feel if the anonymous videographer was her. He grins. He’d thank her and tell her to “cut it out.” She’s putting herself in a tricky situation. He could spot her and figure out. He’ll be angry and take action. Sally thinks she could protect herself if she was the anonymous videographer.

The Abbotts are all bark. Adam denies that with the exception of Kyle. He admits the information is a good start in his battle. Chloe interrupts. Chelsea is ready to meet her at Crimson Lights. Sally’s dying to meet her. Adam hopes they can convince Chelsea to take the position. Sally will do what it takes to win her over.
