The Young and the Restless recaps for June 20 – June 24, 2022, feature a rousing (not really) game of musical CEO chairs.
The Young and the Restless Recaps: Monday, June 20

The couple pitch making Fenmore’s the exclusive US distributor of Marchetti merch; Lauren is intrigued.
Y&R Recaps: Wednesday, June 22
When Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) comes a calling, Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) lays his cards on the table. He knows that he’s being used as a pawn, but he intends to so impress Victor that he’ll remain ensconced at Newman Enterprises even if Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) does indeed return to the fold. Victor is suitably amused… Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) takes to the top spot at Newman Media with relative ease.
Victor demands that Michael track Victoria and Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) down… Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) grows concerned for Billy’s wellbeing… Chelsea and Billy catch up. He’s surprised to learn how affected Chelsea is by Rey Rosales’s (Jordi Vilasuso) death.
