Young and the Restless: Nick Newman Asks A Big Question
Adam visited Sally (Courtney Hope) at the hospital, finding her with her eyes closed before he walked away.
As Sally woke up, Nick (Joshua Morrow) arrived with a blueberry muffin and sat beside her. She revealed that Adam had come by, but she pretended to be asleep — the thought of him being in her room after their baby’s tragic death sickened her. Nick sympathized, but he pointed out Adam had also lost their daughter. He also revealed that Cameron tried to force him to make an agonizing choice between Faith and Sharon.
Sally was shocked when Nick recounted what had happened in the sewer, where Cameron had tried to make him decide who should live and who should die. Nick couldn’t make a choice, but Sharon killed Cameron. Grateful that he had been spared from deciding, Nick understood why Adam had made his decision. Overwhelmed with sorrow, Sally expressed that her little girl had deserved a chance to take her first breath, which Adam had taken away from her.
Nick believed that Adam’s focus had been on Sally and trying to support her through the tragedy. However, when she lost consciousness, Adam was left with the worst possible scenario and put her well-being first. Sally questioned him if he would have chosen to save Sharon over Faith. Nick insisted that it wasn’t the same situation, but Sally felt convinced he would have saved Faith. Tearfully, she asked if he would have saved her little girl too.
Victoria called, and Sally assured Nick that she would be okay as she was half-asleep anyway. He told her that Adam loved their little girl just as much as she did. Nick hoped she could find it in her heart to forgive him because she didn’t need the added stress of hating Adam amid everything else. Nick declared his love for her and expressed his desire for them to live together once she was released. He left after kissing her hand and urging her to think about it.
Young and the Restless Recap: Adam Places Blame
Meanwhile, at Crimson Lights, Sharon (Sharon Case) cheerfully flipped the open sign and sent Faith (Reylynn Caster) to the patio with some flowers. While placing the flowers down, Faith experienced a moment of panic, recalling Cameron. Her mother interrupted and acknowledged that those memories wouldn’t simply vanish. They needed to take things one hour at a time and avoid bottling up their feelings.
As they embraced, Chance (Conner Floyd) interrupted, surprised to see them not taking a day off. The women believed keeping busy was essential and offered him scones to show gratitude for saving their lives.
After Faith departed, Chance asked how Sharon was doing. She admitted feeling unsettled by taking someone’s life, but he reassured her that she had saved lives since Cameron had been hellbent on hurting somebody.
Adam entered, unhappy to see Chance, and lectured him for not being there when Faith needed them. However, Sharon defended the detective, stating that she and Faith might not have survived without him. Faith returned and called them both heroes in her eyes. Adam declared he was no hero and stormed off.
Worried, Sharon followed him, and he apologized. Sharon expressed her condolences for the baby and asked when Sally would be released. She advised him to be kind to himself. Adam found it hard to accept her words after what he had put her through in the past, but Sharon believed no one deserved to suffer the loss he had experienced. She reminded him that it would take time to heal.
Adam admitted that his bond with Sally was broken, and she hated him. He understood her feelings and didn’t blame her.
Nick showed up at Crimson Lights and ran into Adam, who inquired about Sally. Nick assured him that he had made the best decision he could and advised him to give Sally time to process her emotions.
After Adam left, Nick and Sharon discussed the near loss of their child. Nick praised Sharon as a strong and protective mother who had done what she had to. Faith joined them, and Nick gave her a hug.
Faith shared that, all things considered, she felt great but wanted to leave Genoa City to find normalcy with her friends, perhaps by taking a summer class or getting a job near her campus. Her parents agreed with the condition that she stay in touch and call them every day. They shared a group hug.
Once Nick and Faith departed, Chance checked in on Sharon. She filled him in on Faith’s plans, and he assured her that Faith would return. Sharon told him that no one blamed him for what had happened with Cameron and expressed gratitude for his actions, which saved her daughter’s life. They hugged.
Adam returned to the hospital to see Sally, fully aware she didn’t want to see him. However, he felt compelled to come and try to explain. His heart had stopped when he faced the choice of who to save. He couldn’t fathom a world without her in it.
Sitting beside Sally, he shared his dreams of their baby and how much he loved the idea of their spirited and strong-willed little girl. It tore him apart that he would never meet her. However, Sally did. The baby was a part of her; she felt her presence and even sang to her.
Adam acknowledged that Sally would have chosen the baby, but he had chosen her because he loved her. He understood if she never wanted to hear from him again, but he wouldn’t stop loving her, and he wouldn’t forgive himself for breaking her heart. After kissing her hand, he left the room. Once she was alone, Sally opened her eyes and sobbed.
Y&R Recap: Nikki Thinks Victoria Is Pushing Nick Newman Out
Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) arrived at the Newman office, where Victoria (Amelia Heinle) eagerly discussed work. However, Nikki asked for a hug first and expressed relief that everyone was safe. Nikki mentioned how much of an “animal” Cameron had been. Victoria pointed out that Nick deserved a break.
Surprised by her persistence, Nikki explained that Sally had lost the baby. Victoria sympathized with them but believed that Nick should step away and recover. Nikki recalled that Victoria hadn’t taken a break after her situation with Ashland and suggested that Nick might feel the same way, arguing that it should be his choice.
While they debated, Nate (Sean Dominic) entered with some ideas to discuss with Victoria. Nikki assumed he supported her daughter’s stance regarding Nick’s leave of absence. Nikki advised Victoria to hold off on making hasty decisions and left, clarifying that she would not back her up if she forced anything on Nick.
Nate deduced that Nikki wasn’t enthusiastic about him stepping in for Nick. Victoria remained determined to involve him more in the company. He questioned Victoria’s certainty about her decision, noting that her parents wouldn’t be thrilled. Victoria firmly believed that giving Nick the chance to step away was the right thing to do.
Victoria asked Nate about his conversation with Audra (Zuleyka Silver), and he noted Audra’s impressive business mindset. They discussed her ambition and agreed that as long as they kept her focused, she would become a star.
Nick showed up, prompting Nate to leave. Victoria greeted her brother with a hug and asked how he was doing. He mentioned that they were all moving forward from the Cameron ordeal. Nick revealed that Sally was devastated and needed time to recover.
Victoria insisted that Sally and the rest of his family needed him. Nick expressed surprise at her concern for Sally and asked what was happening. Victoria suggested he take a leave of absence, but Nick didn’t want to. She encouraged him to reconsider, explaining that he had experienced significant trauma and might not be thinking clearly. Victoria had already decided and ordered him to step away from his role as COO.
Nate went to Society and noticed Nikki. She praised him for his work at Newman Media and learned about Audra heading their new project. Nikki pointedly noted that he was already focusing on Newman Enterprises before Nick had even left. Nate insisted that he merely wanted to respect Victoria’s wishes and make the best decisions for the company. Nikki pointed out that it hadn’t always been his approach and advised him to proceed cautiously.
