In this episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, Elena vents to Audra about Nate, Nick confronts his father about Sally, and Victoria tells her mom about Nate.

Audra finds Elena moping at Crimson Lights and asks if she found Nate and Victoria hard at work.


“They were hard at something,” Elena complains. At least, Nate had the decency not to deny what was going on when she confronted him. Audra is so sorry she’s going through this and asks what happens now.

Elena pouts and shrugs.

They go to the patio and Elena explains it’s over with Nate. She was beyond furious when she left LA but now is numb. There’s no going back.
Audra is sure she’s in a lot of pain since she seemed in love.

Sneering, Elena explains she realized that she put so much effort into her relationship with Nate because of what they did to Devon.

She’s done with trying to save him from himself. Everything is his fault and he’s disgusting.

He and Victoria deserve each other.

They talk about the future of her podcast. Audra tells her not to turn her back on something she enjoys. She should knock them dead.

Maybe she could bring JT to town. That would be a slap in the face to Victoria.

Elena urges her to watch her back. Nate has no loyalties so she suggests she not trust his charming demeanor. Nate arrives in time to eavesdrop on this.

At Society, Chelsea and Adam discuss how moody and sullen their son has been since he heard about the baby.
