Diane Blows up at Kyle, Chance Interrogates Nick & Victoria and Later Confronts Victor, Urging Him to Come Clean

In this episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, Chance’s questions make Vicky and Nick nervous, and Victor explains away his feelings. In the previous episode, Chance pieces things together about Locke’s death, and Chelsea’s thrilled to work with Billy.

(The Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for August 5, 2022 episode airs in the USA August 8. Recaps live by 5:45 PM EST daily.)

At the ranch, Nikki talks about Ashland being the children’s step-father. Victor doesn’t think they should be mourning for “that bastard.” Nikki thinks he’s pleased with how he’s triumphed over the man and asks why.

Victor shrugs. She’s imagining things. Nikki confronts him about acting as though he’s taking credit for Locke’s demise.

Victor’s just glad the man is gone. He deflects by reminding her that Locke tried to take everything from him and is where he belongs. “On a cold slab in a damned morgue, waiting for a pauper’s funeral.”

He talks about wanting unity for their family but Nikki sighs. That’s not going to happen.

She gently reminds him they’ve been down this road before. She’s sorry, but for his own sanity, he has to put that dream behind him.

At Newman Enterprises, Victoria worries Chance has overheard her discussion with Nick. He hasn’t but wants to talk to them again to get to the bottom of what really happened to Locke.

Vicky and Nick are both on edge as he tries to confirm their statements.

He walked from her door to the gas station. It was nowhere near the house.

It’d have been hard for the man to walk there with a head trauma. He asks if Victoria and Nick if there’s anything more they want to add to their statements.

They don’t, and he admits that they found video footage of the gas station and surrounding area appeared to show two people in the car, though the feed was grainy.

They retrieved a cigarette butt near the car, and noted a lot of footprints nearby. They shrug. They could belong to anyone.

He asks about the ring falling from Locke’s pocket and wonders how that happened. He knows they weren’t in the room when Locke left. Maybe someone moved the body?

Victoria agrees it could have happened but who would do that? Chance thinks Victor would, to protect them.

He says he’s on their side and urges them to talk to him. They glance at each other, making it obvious that they’re hiding something. Nick thinks he should be interrogating his father then, if he’s suspicious.

He lets them know he’s headed there next and gives them one last time to open up. Victoria is grateful the man is dead but it weighs on them how he died.

For the third time, an exasperated Chance asks if there’s anything more to add. Neither comes clean so he sighs and leaves. Victoria’s angry that Nick urged him to interrogate their dad. Nick barks and thinks Chance will never leave this alone.

Victoria doubts he’ll go after their family since he is family. Nick reminds her that Chance is 100% a good cop. He won’t turn a blind eye to  justice.

Jack agrees with Traci.

She talks about competing with Diane at work until Summer stops her from gloating. She doesn’t want to create a volatile situation.

Phyllis was only joking. “Mom. Sometimes your jokes aren’t funny,” she says. Phyllis is surprised at that but agrees that she’ll keep away from Diane and conflict.

“You do realize, she’s just doing this to try to sabotage me,” Diane says, exploding. She’s grateful at least that they’ll be in separate divisions. Diane harrumphs and he tells them they have to be civil and if she can’t, there will be consequences.

Diane knows that Phyllis has an agenda. Kyle says if it’s true, she’ll only mess things up for Diane if she lets her.

“Oh so if she attacks me, do I at least have the permission to defend myself?” Kyle promises that things will be fine.

She’s strong and has faced much more. Diane appreciates it. It’ll prove to the doubters that she changed. She shakes her head, unconvinced.

Once she’s gone, Summer shows up to detail how the discussion went with Phyllis. He does the same and they relax a little. They kiss.
