Daniel Blows up and Fires Phyllis For Her Interference, and Adam Comes to Kyle’s Rescue, Admitting He Wants to Quit Jabot

In this episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, Daniel and Phyllis have a fight, Kyle’s rescued by Adam and Adam says he’s done at Jabot.

In the previous episode, Jack railed on Kyle for betraying him, and Adam told Chelsea his concerns about Billy.

(The Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for February 9, 2023 episode airs in the USA February 10. Recaps live by 4:15 PM EST daily.)

Jack forces Kyle to admit he’s been colluding with Victor this whole time to get Adam dumped from Jabot. Adam eavesdrops from outside the door and Summer catches him. “What do you think you’re doing?” He says he’s eavesdropping.

She threatens to tell Jack and he thinks he’ll just tell him himself because the conversation Jack and Kyle are having is about him.

Summer thinks he’ll make it worse but he promises he’ll put an end to it.

She deserves to be in on it.

He relays that Jack just learned Kyle’s colluding with his father to get him out of Jabot.

Inside Jack’s office, Kyle says he took great pains not to give Victor anything confidential.

Just information about his shotty work history.

Jack says that’s enough and he lied about it. Kyle claims he didn’t lie but Jack says he went behind his back to sabotage his co-CEO.

It’s insulting! Kyle claims his intentions are honorable but Jack calls that BS.

Kyle says Victor just wants Adam back at Newman with his family.

Jack asks how he thinks it’ll look if another CEO jumps ship.

He yells at Kyle to stick to his decision to leave as CEO and let Jack run the company.

Adam walks in and Jack tells him it’s not a good time.

Summer appears and Adam wants to help. Summer sneers at her husband.

He wants to talk to her later about this but she’s staying.

Kyle barks at Adam for opening his mouth but Adam shrugs. It was the truth.

Summer hopes the textiles were worth it. Jack blows up. “You sold me out for some textiles?” Victor will want more back in exchange.

He demands to know what Victor’s next plan is. Jack knows Victor and says Kyle didn’t know what he was getting himself into though Kyle tries to deny it.

Adam doesn’t take issue with what Kyle did. He was looking out for his family’s company and Adam would have done the same.

Adam owns that his work went to hell. He lost drive and hasn’t brought anything to the table. Jack appreciates his honesty.

He wants to help put that behind him but Adam has examined his failings and doesn’t t think things will change. He’s leaving Jabot.

In his office, Victoria asks Nate for an update regarding plans for Tucker. He says he’s testing Audra first.

She and Tucker had a falling out. If she can pull this off even though, he can trust her with more. Victoria’s impressed.

She says they may have to redirect money and sell off some real estate to make the deal work.

This intrigues him as does her mind. He finds it intoxicating. She does too and calls them alike.

At Society, Lily and Daniel are happy that Jill greenlit Omgegasphere.

It’ll be nice to focus on it rather than her lawsuit with Devon, Lily says.

Daniel’s sorry she’s going through with that. She asks if Phyllis is ready.

Daniel says his mom has gone too far and he’s going to fire her.

He tells her that she’s been going around behind his back to shop his project.

Lily finds that out of line too and will support his decision if he wants to let her go.

They talk about her being away from her kids and she asks him not to give up hope on reuniting with Lucy and Heather.

Phyllis returns to Grand Phoenix and runs right into Tucker. He tells her “Welcome home.”

He doesn’t know how to say it in Portuguese. She has a lot of things to say to him but to translate it would be obscene.

She knows he told her son about her trip to Portugal. He never said he’d keep her secret.

He asks after the trip and Phyllis tells him to go to hell.

She goes upstairs and Audra notes that Phyllis looks like she wants to rip his throat out. He thinks he can use that to his advantage.

Or it could be hiding something underneath. A spark.

“We no longer have a spark,” Audra says.

She wants one of them to move out of the hotel so they don’t keep seeing each other.

Tucker thinks this city’s built for awkward run-ins. Tucker asks her to take a step back.

He wants to fix what’s broken between them. She asks how. He grins and says she can admits she overreacted earlier.

He wasn’t the perfect gentleman but he says they have a good history. She agrees.

There’s no reason for animosity. Maybe they can be friends without benefits.

He thinks it over and agrees it’s doable.

Daniel finds Lily at Crimson Lights. He lets her know he gave his mom the axe. She’s sorry. He’s angry that she interfered in his personal life but it’s not the first time.

Lily thinks she meant well. Daniel says she thinks so. She’ll never back down. She’s like a freight train that won’t stop until she gets what she wants.

She has a blatant disregard for what will come from it. He thinks her going to see his ex means it ruined his chances at reconciling with his family.
