In this episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, Sally tells Nick about Victor’s offer, Chelsea and Adam tell Connor he’s getting a sister, and people gather to honor Neil. In the previous episode, Elena confronted Nate, accused him of gaslighting her and dumped him while Daniel was disgusted with Summer, and Diane got bail.
(The Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for May 4, 2023 episode airs in the USA May 5. Recaps live by 4:15 PM EST daily.)
Lily arrives at the jazz lounge and looks at the photos of Neil on the wall.
She walks over to look at the family photos collected beneath it.
Smiling, she flashes back to hanging out with him.
Daniel shows up. She tells him he shouldn’t be there. It’s where his mom collapsed.
He assures her he can deal with it. Plus, it’s the coolest place in town.
He also wants to honor Neil since he missed his funeral.
At the penthouse, Abby tells Devon the party will be phenomenal.
She’s made sure it will be extra special.
She wonders if he’s ready to commemorate his father’s passing. He is.
He adds that Tucker came by with an idea for a tribute jazz festival named after Neil.
She’s surprised to hear he invited Tucker to the event.
They chat about McCall deciding to stick around for his sake.
She assumes he’s sincere. Devon thinks only time will tell.
He says she’s not the only one who thinks Tucker is redeemable and breaks the news that he’s moved in with her mom.
Abby is going to have a conversation with her.
At Society, Tucker tells Ashley his big surprise for the evening is set.
She hopes it works out the way he wants and Devon will see how serious he is about reconnecting.
McCall thinks it’s worth the chance.
She’s proud of him for trying to make this happen.
That’s why she bought his dead.
She’s eager to hear from her daughter.
Abby sends a text, requesting a meet.
They assume she’s learned of the news.
Ashley arrives at the penthouse and her daughter asks her what she could “possibly” be thinking by moving Tucker in.
Her mom explains he was serious about leaving town and she wasn’t ready to see him go.
Abby thinks this is ridiculous and pathetic.
Ashley tells her to watch her mouth. Tucker wants to do the right thing but keeps messing it up.
She wanted to give him another shot.
Abby assumes this is about getting back at Jack.
Her mom says that wasn’t the primary reason.
Her daughter is sure she will regret this in so many ways… but it’s her life and she won’t let this come between them.
After Ashley exits, her daughter shakes her head.
Devon joins his sister at the lounge. They talk about how their lives have changed.
He says there is so much he didn’t get to say to their father.
She’s sure he’s looking down at them and proud.
Mariah arrives as other guests start filing in.
She asks Daniel if it’s weird to see her and be reminded of Cassie.
He doesn’t find it that weird. It just takes some getting used to. He walks off to get Lily some wine.
Sharon comes over to explain Moses and Faith can’t make it because of finals.
Victor and Nikki look at all the photos of Neil.
Devon thanks them for coming and making the lounge special.
Abby joins Devon and he fills her in on Jack not being able to make it.
They chat about how things went with her mother.
Seeing Daniel reminds her she doesn’t want to complain about a disagreement with one of her parents.
Mariah comes over to chat with Devon and they discuss her new baby. Every day is a new experience. They’re sure their kids will be best friends, just like them.
Daniel chats with Abby, who hopes being there isn’t too difficult.
He’s getting used to hearing that.
They talk about the decor and all that Devon and Lily have been through.
The guests discuss Neil and Dru and how they left too soon.
Sharon tells Lily it’s no wonder that she and Devon ended up being people everyone could look up to.
Lily and Devon kick the event off as Tucker and Ashley arrive.
The siblings talk about how important it is to recognize all their father did.
Their jaws drop when Harmony “Yolanda” (played by Chene Lawson) walks in.
Adam meets with Chelsea at Crimson Lights.
After venting about his father, he brings up the baby.
He fills her in that he’s having a little girl. She’s happy for him.
Adam thinks it’s time they tell Connor about the baby. She agrees…at some point.
He points out that Sally is going to start showing so she agrees they need to broach it soon. It will be a shock to Connor, so how should they do it?
Adam suggests they explain what a great big brother he can be.
She adds they need to make him know they won’t love him less.
Since the kid is on his way back from soccer, they might as well tell him now.
Connor arrives and asks if they are doing family stuff. He hopes it’s not about school.
His parents explain they are adding a new member. Connor stares. He’s confused.
His father explains that he is the father of Sally’s baby. That means he will have a baby sister.
“Oh, okay,” says the kid. They remind him that families come in all shapes and they’ll work it out.
Connor asks his mom if she’s okay with it. She is. He just wants to go upstairs.
They’re surprised he has no questions. He has homework.
Adam tells him no one will ever change how much he loves him.
Chelsea seconds that. The kid thinks that’s cool and takes off.
The parents don’t know if that was good or bad. He can’t help picturing Connor meeting his sister. They are all in this together, the whole extended family.
In her suite at the GCAC, Sally is startled when her baby kicks her. She remembers Victor’s offer to pay for her to create a company somewhere else as long as she leaves the child behind.
Nick shows up and asks how things went with his father. It wasn’t what she expected.
She assumes Adam told her about the little heart-to-heart.
He admits it. They are both concerned.
She’s surprised he didn’t storm into Society and is relieved they didn’t try to rescue her.
But his father does have a real power of intimidation.
He started out friendly but eventually gave her his agenda: Victor will do whatever it takes to keep her out of the family.
Sensing the tension, she makes him promise to be cool and then explains that his father was ingratiating and then started digging into her past. He made it clear the baby will never feel alone like she did.
After he apologizes for tanking her deal with Jill, he offered to finance her if she left the baby behind with the Newmans.
He thinks this is vintage Victor.
She thinks his father is refusing to get to know the real her.
He clearly doesn’t think she deserves to be in the family circle.
Nick says she doesn’t deserve to be disrespected like this.
He and Adam have her back.
She doesn’t want to talk about this. He suggests she stay there and relax. She won’t let him leave because she assumes he wants to run off and confront his father.
She’d rather he didn’t escalate things and threatens to use her “feminine wiles” to prevent it. She asks him to spoon so she can drowse.
When they climb into bed, she says everything is better with him around. He feels the same.
Next week on Y&R:
Tucker offers Diane a way out.
Daniel lectures Summer, asking her how she can keep looking Kyle in the eye and lie to him when she has the power to take his pain away.

Devon and Lily are thrilled when Malcolm arrives at the lounge for the celebration.
