The Young and the Restless spoilers (YR) reveal a surprising person stepping up to help get Reed back on the straight and narrow, and you’ll never believe what he has to do now!
After overhearing Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) brilliant plan to ship him off to boarding school, Reed (Tristan Lake Leabu) grabs his guitar and splits.
Mother of the Year doesn’t realize her wayward teenage son is missing overnight until morning when she calls for him to get ready for school. Thank goodness he’d lost his license, or she might not have noticed he was gone at all!
The angsty teen shows up at his good pal Billy’s (Jason Thompson), much to the chagrin of Billy’s put-upon girlfriend Phyllis (Gina Tognoni).
Although Billy isn’t quite the pal he can whine to about how unfair life is, Reed still finds it preferable to home, so Billy and a guilty Victoria and JT agree to let Reed spend one night there to get some space from… you know… things.
Cue the Wrath of Grannie! Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) shows up at Victoria’s and lets her and JT know she thinks their parenting skills suck. Furious, Nikki marches straight over to Billy’s and absconds with Reed to the Ranch.
At the Ranch, Reed obviously believes his grandpa plans to bail him out of his DUI mess. For a moment it looks that way too, but then Victor (Eric Braeden) shocks everyone by laying down the law.
Reed must get up at 6 am, make his bed, exercise for 30 minutes, shower, get ready for school where he will be chauffeured to and from by either his grandma or grandpa daily, and then come home for chores and homework. Wait, what?
Victor calls it Reed’s personal boot camp, but there’s no doubt that the teen sees it as his personal hell–especially considering that Victor decreed Reed must get a haircut!
Meanwhile, Reed’s actual parents? They’re having anger sex on the stairs…
