The Young and the Restless recaps for August 9 – August 13, 2021, feature Ashland Locke and Victoria Newman forging ahead with their engagement, Kyle Abbott and Summer Newman disappointing their loved ones, and Mariah Copeland’s kin finally agreeing that she’s most likely in danger.
The Young and the Restless Recaps Highlight
Ashland (Richard Burgi) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) made the return trip from New York. He presented her with a sapphire ring and proposed again; she says yes. Victoria arranged a face-to-face between herself, Ashland, and Victor (Eric Braeden), and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), during which the engagement was announced.
Victor gave the couple his blessing – much to their surprise; he further stunned Victoria by privately offering to underwrite the ceremony. However, Victor later strained his relationship with Victoria by confronting Ashland and asking if he’s faked his illness in order to get the merger between Locke Communications and Newman Enterprises off the ground.
Young and the Restless Recaps: A Million Miles Away
Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Summer (Hunter King) revealed to their families that they’re staying put in Milan. Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) takes the news quite badly, convincing herself that Summer will change her mind and come home once Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) has been fired from her position at JCV; when that comes to pass, Summer reiterates her desire to remain at Marchetti. Phyliss turns to an equally disappointed Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) for comfort.
When informed of the situation, Ashland implies that it is an untenable one, as he will not allow Harrison to move halfway across the world and live full-time with Kyle and Summer; Jack beseeched him to compromise with Kyle. Jack then deemed to tell Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) and Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) what they could and could not print about Tara Locke’s (Elizabeth Leiner) arrest.
