In this episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, Kyle has it out with Summer and then Phyllis over Diane, then goes to Stark and tells him off, while Abby yells at Devon for letting Tucker hold Dominic, and Adam and Sally have sex and Nick arrives after, with a pretty good idea of what happened.
In the previous episode, Sally and Adam kissed, Tucker met his grandson, and Stark found Diane at Jack’s.
(The Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for December 2, 2022 episode airs in the USA December 5. Recaps live by 4:15 PM EST daily.)
At Jabot, Summer and Kyle bicker over what Phyllis did to his mom. Summer asks Kyle to listen to her mother’s side before pointing fingers.
They agree to table things and let them simmer down.
Phyllis appears and invites them to dinner. It’s uncomfortable.
Kyle doesn’t smile as Phyllis says nothing is more important than family.
Adam and Sally make out in her room at Grand Phoenix.
They take each other’s clothes off as they kiss.
He tosses pillows from the bed and then they’re under the covers, making out.
They have sex and afterward, stare deeply into one another’s eyes.
She seems upset and he tells her this doesn’t have to be the end.
“Doesn’t have to be but it is,” she says.
He says they feel something powerful and meaningful for each other.
She knows it’s why it happened but it can’t again.
She’ll always be grateful to him for helping her see herself in a new way.
She cries and he grimaces. He doesn’t regret a moment with her. Neither does she.
He’s loving and supportive, she says, even though his intentions to protect her were misguided.
He caresses her cheek. “We almost made it,” she cries.
They agree they have feelings for one another still. They’ll be okay, she assures him.
They dress and he tells her she deserves the world. He’s sorry he couldn’t give it to her.
He doesn’t want her to settle for anything. They kiss and he goes.
Sharon brings Chance coffee. She startles him and he realizes he’s been sitting there for a while.
She doesn’t want to intrude but she knows they both lost someone they could confide in when Rey died. He’s sorry.
He can’t talk about it yet. She turns to go and he blurts that he’s divorcing Abby.
Sharon suggests they take time to reconsider but he says he’s gone over the missteps that took him to this point.
He wonders if it’d have been better if they never started a relationship in the first place.
Sharon tries not to regret things. He agrees she’s right. She says it’s the end of a chapter.
What’s he supposed to do now? She says to take it step by step.
He loves her but they weren’t a good fit.
He’s not sure how it’ll be co-parenting. Sharon says Devon could be a great buffer.
He says, “Maybe,” as Victor strolls in, narrowing his eyes at his son-in-law.
He asks if he’s spoken with Abby. Chance has and takes off.
Sharon’s surprised Victor’s so dismissive. He says Chance caused pain for her daughter.
Sharon says there might be more to the story. He might be too hard on Chance. “What do you know?”
Jeremy Stark arrives at the Abbott’s.
He’s happy to see Diane. She’s clearly nervous about the man who brushes past her and wanders inside.
He says they’ve so much to discuss. Jack arrives. The men are introduced.
Jack welcomes him as Diane calls him an old friend.
Jeremy was fond of Diane when she was back in LA. He knew her as Taylor. Diane seems to shrink before his eyes.
Jeremy says he’s in town for “a little of this and that.” He hopes he can see Diane before he goes.
She nods fast, looking frightened. They ask how he found her. Jeremy says he learned she was a grandmother and took it from there.
“We all know how much Diane loves family.” He winks at her and goes. She has a meltdown.
She can’t believe he just came there. “He just showed up.”
Jack holds her. She knows he’s trying to send a message.
Jack says no harm will come to the family. She thinks Ashley, Nikki and Phyllis did this.
“Those bitches have gone too far!”
At Devon’s, Tucker reads the ABCs to his grandson.
Devon likes this. A few minutes with the cutie erases everything going on in the world.
Tucker asks how business is but Devon thought they agreed not to discuss that. Tucker’s sorry.
It was an innocent question. He’d never use his grandson as a pawn.
Devon appreciates that.
Devon gives the baby to Tucker and he snuggles in.
