Young and the Restless Recap Highlights
Also in this episode, Nikki realized she was at Claire’s mercy as she tried to get the younger woman to explain herself. Victoria and Nate had a talk about business, but their relationship remained up in the air. Finally, Audra showed Kyle her true colors. Now let’s dig deeper into what happened.
Victor Rules With An Iron Fist
Victor (Eric Braeden) wasn’t pleased that Victoria didn’t join Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Adam (Mark Grossman) at the office. Both his sons wanted to know what happened next. Nick wasn’t at all pleased when Victor firmly declared that Adam would have a high position at Newman Enterprises.
Victor insisted to both his sons that they had no option but to listen to him because he called the shots. If they decided to push back, he’d replace them all. Adam and Nick agreed to talk to Victoria about remaining with the company.
At the GCAC bar, Victoria (Amelia Heinle) tried to talk with Nate (Sean Dominic), but he wasn’t that interested. Ultimately, though, he agreed to have a drink, so they went to the jazz lounge. Victoria admitted she didn’t have anybody else to talk to at that point, so Nate listened a bit as she told him she planned to leave Newman Enterprises.
Nate surprised her, though, by telling Victoria she shouldn’t leave the family business. He suggested she stay because Victor couldn’t remain CEO for too long, and if she wasn’t there, then Adam would likely take over. Talk turned to Nate, and he admitted he had prospects but wasn’t ready to talk about them yet. He gave her one clue, though — family.
Adam and Nick showed up, and after a snarky exchange, Nate left. Victoria wasn’t pleased to see her brothers, and they talked to her about their family. Back at the office, Victor called Nikki and left her a message.
Nikki Is Held Captive
Claire (Hayley Erin) unlocked Nikki’s phone using Nikki’s eye while she was passed out. She composed a message in Nikki’s tone of voice, telling her family she was planning to stay the night.
Later, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) woke up in bed alone. She quickly realized that the door was locked. As she looked through everything, searching for her purse, phone, or something to help her escape, Nikki realized something was deeply wrong. Nikki beat on the window, yelling for help as Claire calmly drank water downstairs, listening.
Finally, after Nikki attempted to use a pencil to pick the lock and failed, Claire used an intercom system to let Nikki know she was leaving. Nikki begged her captor to explain things, but all Claire did was tell Nikki not to worry because she’d see her family soon.
Audra Shows Her True Colors
Kyle (Michael Mealor) showed up at Newman Media, surprising Audra (Zuleyka Silver). She tried to talk about personal matters, but Kyle insisted on talking about business. He revealed that he couldn’t see betraying his family with her and Tucker.
Not surprisingly, Audra went off on Kyle about his wishy-washy change of heart. After she said her piece, Kyle thanked her for showing him who she truly was. He said he’d come to the office conflicted, but after talking to her, Kyle realized that he absolutely shouldn’t team up with her.
Audra tried to do some damage control, but it seemed like it might be too late for them. Later, when she reached out, Kyle ignored her text.
