Phyllis Records Diane & Stark Getting Cozy, Ashley Blows Up At Tucker, While Victor Includes Kyle In His Plan To Target Adam

In this episode of CBS’ The Young and the Restless, Ashley heads to Paris for a few weeks, upsetting Tucker, while Audra makes a big reveal to Nate, and Diane boasts to Stark about her jewelry heist while Phyllis watches. In the previous episode, Chloe sets Sally and Nick up, Noah asked Nick about his relationship with Sally, and Billy and Chelsea watched some dumb movie.

(The Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for January 12, 2023 episode airs in the USA January 13. Recaps live by 4:15 PM EST daily.)

At Society, Nick comments that Sally seems nervous. He thinks he threw her off, taking her away from her work.

She says he throws her off all the time but it’s in a good way. She’s happy he reached out to her.

There’s nobody else she’d rather spend time with. As she says it, Adam walks in and they lock eyes.

Adam walks to the bar and Sally’s glad there was no confrontation.

She starts reading the menu and thinks they can pretend his brother isn’t there.

She asks him for tips on impressing Jill for her presentation. Nick says not to BS her.

He calls her straightforward and suggests Sally be real. He gets a text from Christian’s nanny who wants to know if he can watch a movie.

Nick texts that it’s okay as Sally and Adam can’t take their eyes off each other.

Nick calls her smart and beautiful. He keeps up the adjectives on how hot she is and it works.

She has the urge to get him into bed.

At Crimson Lights outside, Kyle tells his mother that Summer decided not to take Harrison to Paris.

She is a mess. Jack’s doing her dirty work for her, stealing one of Nikki’s necklaces so she can give it to Stark as a token of her trust.

Kyle worries she’s wired and getting a kick out of this like it’s a game. She denies that.

This is about shutting Jeremy down. She takes off to meet Stark for drinks, assuring Kyle she’ll be careful.

At her suite at Grand Phoenix, Audra takes a call about being happy to join Newman media when Tucker arrives.

Does she think she could avoid him after what she did? She knew he’d turn up at one point.

He calls her messy and careless and blew it for him and Devon. “You failed me, Audra. I’m not going to forget it, either.”

She thinks he’s threatening her. He calls it a promise. He yells at her that she had one job.

She yells back that he learned that they had the same phone notification.

She says Devon wondered if he had an agenda to take over his company since he dropped into Genoa City in the helicopter like the narcissist he is.

He glares. She says, “Oh have I crossed a line?” She says his son was smarter.

Tucker says Devon’s relationship meant more than the company and he won’t let him explain. He cut him off from his grandson.

He wasn’t trying to rob him of anything. He wanted to build something with him. She learns things with Ashley went south too.

She asks if he wants her to cower and beg for forgiveness. It’s not going to happen. She’s as done with him as he is with her.

Nate arrives, sensing the tension. He’s concerned but Tucker takes off. Nate asks what he walked in on.

She confesses she was supposed to help him take over Chancellor-Winters when it came public.

Nate narrows his eyes. He asks when. She says they go back a ways.

He paid off her school loans and she’s been beholden to him.

They shared a business and personal connection. “I see,” Nate says. He tells her about Devon finding out the truth and that she lied about stepping back at CW.

Nate can see she figured she had time. She calls it foolish of her but she wanted to land on her feet and prove her worth. “At my expense,” he says.

It makes him look bad. She’ll understand if he wants to rescind his offer of employment.

He says it makes sense that she wasn’t shocked to learn he was double-crossing his cousins.

If he would have stayed the course, he would have ruined Tucker’s plan. Nate decides to keep her working for him.

Kyle sees Tucker at Crimson Lights and taunts him about losing control over everything he wanted.

Tucker thinks he still has control with Ashley but Kyle says it’s too bad.

“She’s headed to Paris tonight.” He goes.
