This is the Canadian Y&R day ahead recap from the Monday, June 7, 2021 episode, which airs in the USA Tuesday, June 8. In the previous episode, Summer & Kyle resume wedding plans, and in today’s episode, Mariah goes into protective mode with Tara, Billy learns Victoria’s dating Ashland, and Imani and Amanda butt heads.
At Crimson Lights, Victoria and Billy discuss his scathing article about Newman Media. Billy isn’t letting his guard down, knowing her father will retaliate. Victoria’s grateful that he didn’t tell her father that she’s the one who outed him as letting Locke have a heart attack while he forced him to sign over his company. Victoria thinks this is Lily’s influence. Later, Ashland calls and Victoria swoons as she accepts another dinner date. “You’re swimming in some pretty treacherous waters,” Billy says. “You live your life and I’ll live mine,” Victoria retorts. Imani finds Nate sitting outside. He invites her to sit. They talk about how busy he is and that everyone wants medical advice when he’s out. He says a woman in a store asked him to look at a mole. Imani laughs and Elena sees them sitting together and looks upset. Introductions are made and Imani leaves. Later, Tara calls her lawyer about asking Ashland to keep paying the nanny. Mariah overhears and introduces herself. Mariah knows who she is. Tara is shocked that she eavesdropped on her conversation. The Abbotts warned her about who she should speak with. Mariah says they were probably talking about Sally. Still, Tara can’t trust her. Mariah nods. “I get it. Why should you trust me when I can’t trust you?” Mariah says she’s Kyle’s friend and he was a hot mess in New York. When they got together. Maybe Tara didn’t notice or care or she saw how vulnerable he was and took advantage. Tara isn’t taking advantage. She’s focused on caring for her kid. Tara’s surprised that Mariah knows about the kid being Kyle’s. Mariah asks how Summer’s doing with this. Jack walks in and eavesdrops as Tara says she just hopes they work things out. She doesn’t want to be a problem for them. Mariah admits Summer isn’t her favorite person but she and Kyle are meant to be. Tara admits, “That sounds lovely.” She says hi to Jack and heads home. Jack learns that Mariah just met Tara and that Kyle used her as a sounding board so she was discussing what was going on between them.
At Society, Adam tells Victor that he has an idea for Newman Media to have a streaming platform with investigative coverage all across the states, not just in the biggest cities. Victor is surprised by his idea since he was against getting rid of Chance Comm as competition. Adam argues that they can get rid of all of the competition, not just Chance Comm. Adam says he’s changed. He’s gone off the rails each time he tried to get his life back. This time it’s different. Vic’s happy to hear but they argue about how to handle Billy Boy Abbott. “We’re going to look petty and vindictive.” They do more business and Victor again wants to wipe the floor with Billy Boy. Adam thinks it’ll set things back with Nicholas but “Nick can’t stand Billy Boy Abbott,” Victor says, leaning in. They can’t embolden him or he’ll come out with another expose to try to ruin them. Adam insists his father let him do things his way. Victor agrees. For now.
