In the previous episode, Jack and Kyle found DNA evidence, Sharon was stalked while babysitting as Tessa and Mariah were tense on their date.

(The Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for May 17, 2023 episode airs in the USA May 18. Recaps live by 4:15 PM EST daily.)

Someone looks in at Sharon from outside of Crimson Lights.

Adam walks in and Sharon fawns over Aria.

Sally arrives but stands back as Adam tells Sharon he doesn’t know how to be a girl dad.

Sharon says it doesn’t make any difference. Babies want the same things.

sally eavesdrops on adam

He hopes that true. He’s been thinking a lot about his mom and hopes his daughter inherits her qualities as well as Sally’s.

She eavesdrops and smiles.

He also hopes that the baby doesn’t turn out anything like him or his father.

Sally walks in to say he will be a great dad to a baby girl.

He leaves the ladies alone and Sally explains she’s made things awkward for him.

She tells Sharon how adorable the baby is and she keeps glancing across the room at Adam.

Sally asks if the baby senses the conflict around her. She’s had lots of stress in her situation.

Sharon encourages her to enjoy her connection with the baby while she’s pregnant. She asks her to look after the baby while she takes care of something.

Once Sharon walks off, Adam returns to tell his ex he hates that she feels uncomfortable around him.

Sally claims she’s not but he doubts that. He just wants her to enjoy her pregnancy and tells her how much she deserves Nick’s support.

However, this baby is also bonding them together further. It’s hard for him to be around her because he can’t let go of loving her.

Adam knows that’s not fair on her. They need to find a way to get through this for the baby’s sake.

She wonders if he can do that and respect her boundaries. He wants to do the hard work and repeats that he still wants a romantic relationship with her.

Sharon returns and Sally takes off. He notices the bottle of champagne.

She doesn’t know who sent it. The card just said memories are what life is made of.

He wonders if it’s from an old flame. Someone continues to watch from the window.

Nick wanders into Society. His father is there and asks him to join him.

Nick starts venting about Nate and Victoria. It’s not right for her or the company. He suspects Nate will turn on them.

Victor reminds him that Nate is not like the other men in Victoria’s life and she has her eyes open.

He thinks it’s ironic that Nick is criticizing his sister given his relationship with Sally.

He’s sure both “dalliances” will end soon.

Nick rejects that for himself, but wishes his sister well but doesn’t see this working out.

nick questions his father

In her office at Newman, Victoria and Nate talk about their pitch in LA.

They talk about examining all the details and how she always gets what she wants.

victoria asks if nate has second thoughts

He gets a text and his mood changes. It was just Elena let him know which storage facility to send her things to.

Nate says this was inevitable and he won’t claim he doesn’t feel responsible.

He rehashes how his bond with Elena fell apart after he ceased being a doctor.

Victoria asks if he will change how he feels about her when people find out that he cheated on Elena with her.

Nate says his mind is made up and kisses her.

He assures her he doesn’t hold her responsible for what happened with his ex.

She’s only responsible for being irresistible.

Chance stops by the Abbott estate looking for Jack.

Summer answers the door and the cop tells her about the cryptic call he got from Jack.

chance visits summer

She has no idea. He says it’s something about DNA. Christine thinks it’s a bluff.

The cop says that if this is a ploy, it’s very unfair to her. She tells him not to worry about her feelings.

“My mom is definitely alive,” she says. She’s sure her brother wouldn’t lie about something like this.

That makes sense to the cop. She assumes he suspects her mom is alive.

Summer asks him what they can do to help her mom.

She knows Jack and Kyle want to use Phyllis to save Diane, but she’s more concerned about her mom and needs someone on her side.

summer confesses to chance

“I can’t lose her to prison,” she says. The cop can’t commit to anything.

He asks about all the tension with Daniel. She says they are in a tense situation.

He wonders if she and her brother have known about Phyllis for longer than they’re letting on.

chance thinks summer lying

The cop suggests they are trying to figure out how to handle their mom framing Diane and murdering Stark. If she wants him to help her, she needs to tell him everything.

She accuses him of interrogating her. None of this is adding up to him.

He needs confirmation of this from someone other than Daniel. It’s hard for him to imagine her mother would only reach out to her brother.

He assumes she saw Phyllis too but kept it from her husband.
