The Y&R spoilers recap for Friday, May 6, 2022, brings Diane Jenkins walking straight into the lions’ den, Adam Newman and Sally Spectra growing closer, and Billy Abbott and Lily Winters clashing.
Y&R Spoilers Recap Highlights
Diane (Susan Walters) had a bad dream. In it, Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) read her the riot act as authorities arrested her. She awoke in her hotel room, realizing it was just a nightmare.
At the Abbott mansion, Jack and Kyle talked over Kyle’s concerns about Diane. He just couldn’t wrap his mind around his mom leaving him by choice, ensuring he had to grieve her. Kyle asked for Jack’s gut feeling, but the elder Abbott said he’d promised not to influence his son regarding Diane.
Jack couldn’t help relating Kyle’s situation with Diane to his situation with Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams). He wanted a reconciliation so much for his son. Kyle decided to run a simulation for how it might work by putting her to the “Abbott” test, and Jack set the whole thing up.
Young and the Restless: Family Ties
Sally (Courtney Hope) advised Adam (Mark Grossman) to cut ties with his family — after all, he doesn’t need them. Instead, he should strike out on his own. However, Adam didn’t want to concede the win to Victoria (Amelia Heinle). He should be rewarded for ridding the family and company of Ashland Locke (Robert Newman). Even so, Sally reminded Adam what he does for the Newmans is never enough.
Adam wanted to know how it’d be for Sally if he opped out of Newman Media, leaving her to handle his whole family alone. She admitted she’d keep the job and make his family fall in love with her. She and Adam have a rare love, and she didn’t want the good or bad version of him. Instead, all Sally wants from Adam is him — all of him.
Adam realized that having somebody like Sally who has his back, he feels older and wiser now, and perhaps it’s not time to walk away from his family yet again. No matter what, Sally vowed to support Adam whatever his choice. Of course, Sally declared that Adam does deserve better than how his family treats him.
Later, Adam and Sally went to The Grand Phoenix, and Adam ran into Diane. He welcomed her to the resurrection club. He confronted her about how she left, and they shared a catty back and forth. Then, he gave her the rules of resurrection club — which of course, she (and he) broke. As former co-conspirators, they had plenty to say, but then Diane also gave him props for putting the past behind him and moving forward with a better life. He wished Diane good luck, and then he and Sally headed upstairs for some adult time. After, he explained a bit of his sordid connection to Diane.
Y&R Spoilers Recap: The Grinning Soul
Billy (Jason Thompson) tried to justify his new podcast featuring his untamed side, but Lily (Christal Khalil) wasn’t quite buying it. She didn’t feel great about the fact that Billy ranted about Ashland on the podcast right after their confrontation. However, Billy noted that he could’ve been talking about any powerful mogul.
Lily worried Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) might figure out it was him, but Billy declared that his ex-wife had more to deal with aside from the anonymous ramblings of “The Grinning Soul.” Jack called, interrupting their discussion, asking Billy to join the family for a meeting. However, Lily insisted he attend the Chancellor Winters meeting first, so he agreed.
Y&R: All In The Family
Abby Chancellor (Melissa Ordway), Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland), Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson), Jack, and Kyle gathered at the Abbotts to confront Diane. They all worried that Diane wasn’t on the up and up, but Jack and Kyle mentioned that Diane seemed to be genuine in her approach to Kyle.
Ashley, especially, didn’t seem willing to give Diane a second chance, but Traci argued that they at least listen to Kyle’s mom. Diane walked in, and Ashley delivered a harsh welcome for her.
