The Young and the Restless recaps for July 31 – August 4, 2023, featured good old-fashioned blackmail, curious developments, employment roulette, and so much more.
Sharon (Sharon Case) extends a job offer to Mariah (Camryn Grimes)…. Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) solicits the (reluctant) support of her children….

Lily (Christel Khalil) puts herself out — literally — to distract Daniel (Michael Graziadei) from his woes…. Summer (Allison Lanier) leans on Chance (Conner Floyd) for support…. Abby (Melissa Ordway) blasts Ashley (Eileen Davidson) over her obsession with Diane (Susan Walters)…. Phyllis lays it on the line for Adam, but he won’t commit to helping her cause.
