In this episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, Tessa takes her worries to Elena, Victor taunts Jack, and Diane moves her stuff into the Abbott house.

(The Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for February 6, 2023 episode airs in the USA February 7. Recaps live by 4:15 PM EST daily.)
At the Abbot estate, Diane worries to Jack that they are tempting fate by being so happy. He tells her fate is on their side this time.
He kisses her and leaves her with a smile.
Diane goes to her old suite at the Phoenix and packs stuff. Picking up an old family photo with Jack and Kyle, she smiles and sits down.
On her way out, she bumps into Tucker in the lobby. He starts making a few jabs and she pays him back by reminding him that Ashley ran away.
He says that her life looks like it’s back on track at the moment but her happiness is hers to lose.
McCall goes to his room and calls Ashley, leaving a voicemail and offering to explain to her why he resorted to subterfuge.
Jack shows up at the ranch. Victor jokingly asks if he should he hiding the silverware.
Jack isn’t impressed. Victor says, “You got a lot of nerve, man.”
The Abbott confronts him about his plot to ruin Adam’s tenure at Jabot and about dragging Kyle into it.
Victor nods his head and says that his son is undermining himself. That doesn’t speak well of Jack’s mentorship.
He suggests that he g home and salvage his “train wreck of a relationship” with Diane. He’s enjoying watching it all go up in flames. Jack fumes.
Michael strolls in and comments on the atmosphere.
Jack warns Victor to stay out of Adam’s affairs and then storms out.
Sitting down, Michael tells his boss that Tucker’s company is in a lot of debt. Buying that up will give them leverage but not control.
“I’m looking forward to dealing with that SOB,” Victor says.
When Jack gets home, Diane has just returned with her bag. He offers to have her stuff from LA flown over.
She tells him it’s just stuff and it can stay there.
Again, she wonders if it’s okay for them to be so happy when no one supports them.
He says those who care for them will come around and the rest don’t matter. They kiss.
In her office at Newman, Victoria looks away from her computer to think about the kiss she shared with Nate.
Nick eventually interrupts. She saws and then tells him about her brainstorming session with Nate and their plot against Tucker.
She knows things could get ugly, but anything worth taking is never easy.
He paces. She assumes there are Sally problems.
Her brother says it’s none of her business and refuses to discuss this.

In her suite, Sally calls and makes an appointment for the paternity test. Talking it out to herself, she realizes that she has to call Adam.
Chloe shows up. Her friend explains that she told Nick everything. She’s not optimistic things will go so well with Adam.
Chloe urges her to trust Nick and not entertain the possibility that Adam could be the baby’s father. She’s sure Nick wouldn’t walk away either way.
Sally explains that she’s called for the paternity test. Her friend tells her she can’t tell Adam about the pregnancy.
Sally wants everything out in the open and dealt with.
Sitting with her, Chloe advises her to do the test with Nick first. If he’s the father, they never need to tell Adam.
Sally’s not sure this is fair to Adam. Her friend thinks that he will use it as an open invitation back into her life.
Nick lumbers in and Chloe takes off. He tells Sally she’s lucky to have a friend like Chloe. They hug.
Sally still doesn’t understand why he is being so supportive. He tells her how much he cares about her.
As far as the paternity of the baby goes, they will cross that bridge when they come to it.
She explains that she scheduled the DNA test. Nick looks surprised.
She adds that she will only tell Adam about this if she has to. She’s starting by only testing Nick’s DNA.
He will support her no matter what. When she asks if she should talk to Adam, he admits he doesn’t want Adam to know but he’ll have her back no matter what she does.
She asks him to get swabbed. He’ll make time for that.
At his penthouse, Nate thinks of Victoria until Elena shows up. He immediately kisses her and leads her to the bedroom.
That’s over pretty quick and they come back down. He needs to get to the office and promises her a romantic getaway for the weekend.
He leaves her with a smile.
Tessa shows up and Elena wonders if something is wrong.
They sit down with tea and Tessa explains that Delphine just had Braxton-Hicks.
The whole thing really freaked Tessa out. It made her realize something could go wrong during the birth.
Elena thinks it’s great she’s so protective. There’s not much she can do other than be on stand-by and be ready to be a mother.
The probability of a complication after a healthy pregnancy is low.
That’s a relief to Tessa. She and Mariah are tying up some loose ends before heading to Portland.
Elena guesses she’s worried about more.
Tessa explains that Mariah understands what’s going on because she’s been pregnany. Whereas, she’s totally unprepared.
Elena tells her about how dependent babies are. She has no doubt Tessa has all it takes to be a great mother.
Tessa feels clueless. Her friend tells her she knows how to be baring. Most of it will come naturally.
She reminds her of how she was Mariah’s rock with Dom. She’s sure she’s ready and the baby will beyond lucky to have such strong and loving women as mothers.
All of this makes Tessa feel better. She wishes they could take her to Portland for pep talks.
She notices that Elena seems happier. Elena admits things were tense with Nate for awhile but they are making it work. She’s very happy.
Adam corners Chloe in Crimson Lights and tells her how worried he is about Sally. He knows something is wrong.
Are things not working out with Nick?
She accuses him of meddling and tells him Nick and Sally are “bonded.” That sets him to thinking.
Chloe reminds him he has a job and taunts him about getting it thanks to pity.
Adam heads over to the Abbott house. Diane makes herself scarce.
Adam wanted to speak to Jack about his future at the company before things get ugly.
He explains that Kyle has been digging into his performance.
Jack admits that Victor knows a lot that hasn’t been made public.
Over at Newman, Nate bumps into Victoria in the hall. They talk about how “invigorating” their brainstorm session was.
She suggests they should have more meetings like that. He agrees and tells her they can lay a path to the future.
“On a purely professional level,” she adds.
They are startled when they arrive in her office and Michael and Victor are there.
They ask to speak to her alone about purchasing debt. Victoria wants Nate to be in on this. She thinks he could be a valuable asset to their plans for McCall.
