The Canadian Y&R day ahead recap from the Tuesday, July 27, 2021 episode, which airs in the USA Wednesday, July 28. In the previous episode, Ash wants treatment for his illness after learning Victoria is in love with him. In this episode, Phyllis watches her plan in action with Sally and Tara and sends proof that they are colluding to Jack and Kyle, while Nate has big news for Elena.
Lauren walks in on Jack ordering flowers to be sent to Sally. She’s surprised to learn they’re giving it another shot. She has no issue with that and admits she’s shining at JVC. Lauren’s thining of making her job permanent. She notices Jack’s wearing Dina’s Teardrop of Love cufflinks. Jack says he wouldn’t go that far. He thinks they’re working for her and Michael. Lauren admits they’re doing really well. They talk about Harrison and how he wishes he could have met Dina.
At her hotel, Phyllis finishes texting Tara while Sally has found three more erroneous charges on her bill. Phyllis is sorry. She’ll give whoever is in charge an earful. Sally reminds her she’s the boss. “You’re right. I am in control,” she says, deleting her text to Tara. She brings back her books and sets them down on the table. Sally says she won’t pay for any of these. “You’re right. You won’t be paying for anything you’re not responsible for. I promise you that,” she says. Later, Phyllis removes the charges and promises it won’t happen again. She offers a free day at the spa. Sally thinks she’s being overly nice. Phyllis offers training sessions with her super hot trainer. “He still has a crush on you,” she admits. Sally isn’t sure Jack would like that. “You can just owe me one,” Sally says, leaving. Phylis definitely owes her one. She’ll be making good on that.
At home, Tara makes it sounds as though Ashland was unreasonable with her. “I feel like he is weaponizing telling Harrison the truth, and now it’s a ticking time bomb.” She wants to tell Harrison with Kyle at her side. Kyle worries it’ll anger Ash. Tara acts as though if they don’t, she is concerned he’ll do something. Kyle disagrees. This is something she and Ash should do and there’s no rush. Tara agrees. Maybe he’s seeing things clearer than her. When he notices that she’s pacing, he tells her she looks anxious. Is something else is bothering her? She gripes about one thing happening after another. She asks if he minds looking after the kid so she can go for a walk.

She bangs on it. “Hey, hey, as much fun as this stay has been, me and this baby would like to get out of here now, please. Please?” When nobody comes, she says, “I guess we’re still prisoners.” She’s screamed, begged, and threatened and the person is giving them the silent treatment.

Sally meets Tara at the hotel. She wants to see if they can collaborate on her shoe line. They get into the elevator to go up to Sally’s suite as Phyllis eavesdrops. When the elevator door closes, Phyllis watches them on the camera as Tara stops the elevator. “What were you thinking sending me that text?” Sally doesn’t know what Tara is on about. Tara shows her the text from Phyllis telling her that Phylis has figured it out. Sally looks at her phone. She shows Tara that she didn’t send it. She realizes Phyllis must have. Later, Phyllis has sent the video file to Jack and Kyle. The men watch the women yelling and wonder what the argument could have been about since there’s no audio. A few minutes later, Sally gets off the elevator and gets in Phyllis’ face. Sally calls her out on distracting her with the bill charade and using her phone to send a text. Phyllis feigns innocence. Sally thinks she’s making a big mistake underestimating her. Phyllis assures she isn’t. But she plays along. What if she did send that text? “Why are you so scared?” Sally says she impersonated her. “That is identity theft.” Phyllis taunts her. “Come clean right now, tell me what you and Tara did to my daughter,” she warns.
Meanwhile, Tara paces in Sally’s suite. Kyle texts her and tells her to come home. “We need to talk.”
At the mansion, Jack tells Kyle that the video warrants a conversation.
