This is the Canadian Y&R day ahead recap from the Friday, April 30, 2021 episode, which airs in the USA Monday, May 3. Monday’s episode had Nick found Adam at AJ’s farm, and in today’s episode, the tornado was on top of the house, causing issues with Adam and Nick trying to get back to Genoa City, while Billy looks for a story to follow when he hears Nick’s out of town with the jet.

At AJ’s farm in Kansas, Nick and Adam try to escape from the basement. The wind is strong and the men argue about needing to get back to Genoa City. They use a beam to prod at the door. It doesn’t work, and Nick keeps at trying to find solutions to get out of the basement. Adam finds a bottle of wine and a glass. He tells Nick that the winds are over a hundred miles per hour. They’re stuck there. When they can leave, they will. Until then, he’ll drink a glass of wine. Nick rants to stop that since he might be having the operation soon. They repeat the conversation a few times and Nick rifles through everything on the wall. He feels a draft. He pulls away boxes from the wall and finds the cellar door. He thinks it’s their way out but it’s locked. Adam helps Nick try to open it. Nothing works so they rest. Adam talks about Connor and missing his son. Nick starts beating on the door again and Adam considers that after all is said and done, people won’t see him as a changed man. Nick reminds him he’ll try to help him escape again but it won’t make him a changed man. “You start making effort and then we’ll talk.” Adam asks what would make him a changed man. Nick says to stop running from the consequences of his actions. Adam didn’t try to poison Rey. Adam doesn’t want Nick to see him as just the sum of all his misdeeds. Adam’s not sure he wants to be Nick’s enemy anymore. He needs a fresh start, a clean slate. Nick hears him and is glad to hear this but right now his mind is on Faith. They get back to work and the door opens but when the ceiling starts to cave in, Nick throws Adam out of the way. “Adam! The ceiling!”

He becomes very angry about it and thinks she kept it from him. They argue and he hopes Adam comes through for her. He asks to see Faith. She cries. She’d never keep him from seeing her. He visits her and smiles at her and they talk about how they miss each other. Sharon eavesdrops and Faith asks if Rey moved out. He tells her it’s complicated but he still loves her mother. Nothing would make him happier than things working out. Her health is the most important. He offers to get Lola to come talk her through the surgery. Sharon goes and Rey appears later and offers to take her home. Later, Moses arrives and Faith says she could use the company. He asks why she’s there. Nate won’t tell him. She explains what’s going on with her. He’s shocked. She’s not feeling too lucky, she admits. Moses goes online to read about her condition. He tells her she’ll get through this.
