The Young and the Restless recap for Thursday, August 19, 2021, suddenly has various Newmans suspicious of Ashland Locke, while Abby Newman, Sharon Rosales, and Tessa Porter have a plan to smoke out Mariah Copeland’s kidnapper.
The Young and the Restless Recap Highlights
Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) has a chat with Ashland (Richard Burgi) which convinces him his sister’s new fiancé is up to no good. He runs into Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson), who totes agrees.
Billy stomps over to Victoria Newman’s (Amelia Heinle) under the pretense of needing to talk shop with Ashland, but Victoria sends her ex on his way – he can make an appointment with Ashland’s assistant to talk shop. Victoria and Ashland are about to have sex.
Nick, meanwhile, stomps over to Victor (Eric Braeden) and Nikki’s (Melody Thomas Scott) where he wants to know how Mom and Dad can let Victoria marry a guy none of them know anything about. (Hey, Nick, remember how you huff and puff whenever Victor tries to tell you what to do? Any reason you assume Victoria won’t feel the same way?)
Nick insists the man is ruthless! He can’t be trusted. Nikki subtly tries to say that some people can be ruthless in the boardroom…but loving in their family life – while doing her best not to look Victor’s way. Victor leaves the ranch long enough to head over to Society and glower at Billy.
Y&R Recap: Text Chain
Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) determining that Mariah (Camryn Grimes) hasn’t used her credit cards since going AWOL convinces her loved ones that she is being held hostage against her will. Sharon (Sharon Case), Abby (Melissa Ordway), and Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) continue the text chain from “Mariah,” hoping to get her captor to slip and reveal where she is.
Oh, and Ben (Sean Corrigan) is coincidentally at Abby’s door! Devon Hamilton (Bryton James), on the other hand, asks Rey if his offering a reward would do any good? Money often fixes dilemmas faster than subterfuge!
