The Young and the Restless recap for January 6-10, 2020, features Adam wooing the girl, Mariah bidding Tessa adieu, Sharon struggling with a diagnosis, and so much more.
The Young and the Restless Recap Highlights
To quote Phyllis (Michelle Stafford), “Adam wins again.” And boy howdy does he win. Not only is Chelsea (Melisa Claire Egan) living at the apartment full time but she’s now back in his bed. Turns out persistence (mixed with psychopathy) really is key to attaining one’s goals.
A Cup of Honesty and A Farewell
“Wedding special: 25 bucks plus license. I mean, you know, who could turn down a deal like that?” So goes Tessa’s (Cait Fairbanks) explanation of her marriage to eventual rock star Tanner Watts.
And even though Mariah (Camryn Grimes) still harbored resentment that her girlfriend wasn’t upfront and honest from the beginning, she did, indeed forgive. And she even encouraged her to accept Tanner’s offer to go on tour. Which Tessa does…bye girl!
Sharon: Medical Crisis
Sharon’s (Sharon Case) mammogram and ultrasound revealed a lump that the doctor determined was a tumor. In response, she called and scheduled a Core Needle Biopsy in hopes that it could determine whether the mass was benign or malignant. Despite her obvious fear, Sharon still refused to welcome Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) into her confidence
“I remember one of her former husbands had died…and Chelsea moseyed on over to Nicholas’ house and moved in. And now, she has ended things with Nicholas and she’s moved into your penthouse. Do you think she doesn’t like to pay rent?” Damn, Victor (Eric Braden) can be vicious. And he may also have a point.
Speaking of fair points well made, Adam had one too. “Nikki’s past is far more scandalous than Chelsea’s.” But, that’s only if you consider murdering three people, marrying more men than Elizabeth Taylor, and working as an exotic dancer scandalous.
With all the reminiscing he did about Cassie, did Nicholas (Joshua Morrow) even remember to call and wish Mariah — you know, Cassie’s twin — a happy birthday?
Speaking of birthdays, you can pencil Theo’s (Tyler Johnson) in your yearly planner now that we know it’s April 20th. Wonder how big and wild a bash the party-hearty playboy will throw?
Boy Tessa should really be getting some royalty money if Tanner really did use her and their relationship as a basis for two of his hit singles. And what great titles they have — Fess Up and Girl in Absentia.
Speaking of Genoa City players inspiring musical melodies, can you buy Phyllis‘ semi-serious assertion that her and Nick’s relationship was the basis for Katy Perry’s “Firework?” Also, did ANYONE remember that the superstar played cover girl for an issue of Restless Style? Actually, while we’re at it, who remembers Restless Style?
How does Society ever turn a profit given Abby’s (Melissa Ordway) penchant for closing its doors and hosting private parties at the drop of a hat? Heck, she even gave Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Lola (Sasha Calle) the run of the whole restaurant for a simple birthday celebration.
Another week passed and we know a little bit more about Amanda (Mishael Morgan) then we did in the previous one. It was seeing her friend’s mugger go unpunished that spurned her on into becoming a lawyer and the man she has a restraining order against is an ex-fiancée.
Oh, and she really doesn’t follow the NFL. “The Bears… they’re the pointy ball sport?” The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
