The Young and the Restless Recap Highlights
Victor (Eric Braeden) just cannot wrap his brain around how he could have lost and Jack (Peter Bergman) could have won. But that portrait of Jack and Brad (Don Diamont) hanging above what used to be Victor’s desk – and no more place for Victor on the Board of Directors – suggests that’s exactly what happened.
Victor Has A Tantrum
And, like a toddler who knows he should be using his words but is so angry that none are coming to him, Victor spews a collection of sounds that he thinks are threats, then grabs the portrait and smashes it over a chair. With no more big targets, Victor next goes for a pencil, snapping it in half and telling Jack that’s what he’s going to do to him. The fact that Jack manages to stand there without bursting out laughing is the most awe-inspiring part of this confrontation!
Listen To Me
Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) is pretending to be a fellow homeless person, living alongside Mackenzie, a teenager who ran away from home (and an abusive stepfather) to find her long-lost grandmother. Kay knows she’s Mac’s long lost grandmother. But she doesn’t tell her. Reasons…
Instead, Kay convinces Mac to go to the Chancellor Mansion, tells Esther (Kate Linder) to keep Jill (Jess Walton) – who is currently living there – out of the way, and surprises Mac when she arrives. Why didn’t she just tell her before? Shrug.
Paul (Doug Davidson) and Christine (Lauralee Bell) hope she is pregnant. They learn she is not. They are sad. And then they forget about it and move on…The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
