In this episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, Victor and Adam bicker, Sharon encourages Chance to consider his options, and Nikki has some suspicions about the robbery. In the previous episode, Devon was disappointed when Jill refused to dissolve the merger, and Mariah and Tessa could have their baby by February.

(The Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for January 19, 2023 episode airs in the USA January 20. Recaps live by 4:15 PM EST daily.)

Sharon finds Chance staring at Crimson Lights. He tells her about Nikki and Victor’s apartment in Chicago being robbed.

Sharon starts gossiping about Stark and Diane. He tells her about the arrest. The cop admits it all seems too cut and dried.

He has no doubt that Stark is a bad guy but burglary isn’t really his thing. Everyone in Chicago seems pleased, but it’s all way too contrived.

On the way to Chicago, Stark ranted about Diane and Jack being in cahoots.

She gets him more coffee and he wonders if he should ignore his doubts. Even asking these questions is making him sick.

He used to believe in what he was doing. Sharon hates to hear that.

She knows that things are not black and white in the law. There’s a lot of compromises and most of what happens is out of his hands.

Maybe he’s no longer in a situation he doesn’t want to be?

If he were going to consider a change, what would he do? He has no idea. He’s only ever been a public servant.

She offers to help him consider other options. After making some flailing motions, she suggests he go and work for Cirque du Soleil.

That makes him laugh and he thanks her for the distraction. Being silly with her feels natural.

The Chicago PD text him about Stark’s arrest. He wishes he didn’t have to go and can’t wait for what else she comes up with.

At the Abbott estate, Diane explains what happened in Stark’s room to Kyle and Summer. Jack adds a few details about Jeremy’s arrest.

The Chicago PD has him in custody now. Diane says they are safe now and can go back to normal.

Kyle still isn’t happy about how things went down. Summer wonders if Stark will get a good lawyer.

Jack is adamant that what they did was still worth the risk. Summer isn’t happy that they broke a bunch of laws and lied to the police.

Jack justifies them “eradicating” Stark from their lives. Nikki shows up.

Jack fills her in on Stark being the one behind her burglary. She had no idea this somehow involved Diane.

Kyle and Summer escape and Nikki asks Jack how he knows all this. Why would a felon go all the way to Chicago to steal from that? She has some theories.

Nikki is relieved that Jeremy is off the streets.

“Isn’t it ironic that your misfortune turned out to save me?” Diane remarks to her.

Nikki realizes that the alarm to her apartment is the same as it was when Jack was last there.

Chance shows up. Nikki thanks him for all he did last night and asks how Stark was able to figure out her security codes so easily.

The cop has no idea. Jack says Stark is a felon and Chance makes a snipe about the “upstanding citizens of Genoa City.”

Once Nikki is gone, Chance tells Jack and Diane that Stark has been arraigned, but all of this makes little sense. Who leaves their glasses behind while committing grand larceny?

Diane and Jack are fidgety and claim they can shed no light on this situation.

Chance makes veiled remarks about wealthy people acting like they are above the law and exits.

Diane asks Jack if the ordeal is really over. It’s overwhelming. She feels like she has a future again and it’s all because of him.

Jack says she’s a strong, formidable, amazing woman. She didn’t need anyone to save her; she just needed some support and he was happy to give it to her.

They kiss and leap into bed for sex.

If Kyle is going to need something in return if he agrees to help.
