Y&R Recap – Tue Apr 9: Cole and Victoria Kiss; Lily Rejects Daniel’s Plea; The Abbotts and Tucker Team Up For Ashley’s Intervention

Lily, Cole, Victoria, Tucker, and Ashley.

Today’s Young and the Restless recap airs in the USA on Tuesday, April 9, 2024, and airs one day ahead in Canada. We post our Y&R recaps every weekday!

Last Episode

Ashley, Ms. Abbott, and Ash.

On the last episode of Y&R, Ashley’s alters clashed after confronting Audra and Tucker, while Victor and Nikki collaborate to trap Jordan.

The Newman Ranch House

Cole walks into the living room and greets Victoria, Nikki, Claire, and Victor. He asks if there’s an update on Jordan.

Cole Howard smiles.

Victor says there will be no mention of “that woman’s” name tonight. They’re going to the jazz lounge as they have an anniversary to plan, and they’d like everyone to join them.

Cole says he’d be honored to attend.

Victoria hopes Cole doesn’t mind the venue… She wants to tell Claire about the man it was named after.

Cole nods. Neil Winters… The man who almost became Claire’s stepfather.

Victoria Newman, Nikki Newman, and Claire Grace.

The Neil Winters Jazz Lounge

Summer and Chance walk down the stairs into the lounge. Summer tells Chance that even though she misses being with Harrison at the Abbott house, living at the GCAC has its perks!

Chance says it’s nice to have someone else make their drinks for a change. He suggests they take a seat at the bar.

Summer laughs and they kiss. Summer’s phone pings with a notification and she says it’s Daniel, who wants to get breakfast tomorrow. She thinks Daniel must be upset about getting fired, but figures leaving Lily for Heather got him the “expected” result.

Summer looks at her phone as she talks with Chance.


Lily is sitting and working when Daniel walks in, asking to talk. Lily says they’ve said everything there is to say.

Daniel says he wants to talk about OmegaSphere; more specifically, about Princess Louisa.

Lily Winters.

Tucker’s GCAC Suite

Tucker and Audra walk into his room. Tucker tells Audra he’s sorry she had to deal with Ashley again.

Audra tells him not to apologize. She says she sees that Tucker was right about Ashley… Something strange is happening to her, and it’s unsettling to watch.

Tucker hopes Jack and the Abbotts can get Ashley the professional help she needs.

Audra Charles and Tucker McCall.

The Abbott Mansion

Traci thanks Billy, Jack, and Diane for meeting her at so late an hour, but this affects them all.

Diane says it’s nice to be included in a family meeting.

Diane and Jack Abbott.

Billy asks how long the meeting will be… He wants to be there for Chelsea since she’s going through some issues with Connor.

Traci is sorry she pulled him away and promises it’s important.

Jack asks if they’re waiting for Ashley since she’s the topic of the meeting.

Traci says she’s “scared to death” for Ashley.

Traci Abbott.

Ashley’s GCAC Suite / Ashley’s Mind

Ashley (Ms. Abbott) sits on the sofa, eyes closed. She’s in her own mind, a white room with three beds. On each bed lies one of Ashley’s alter-egos. There’s Ash, the youngest, Ashley, and Ms. Abbott.

Ash sits up and complains that Ms. Abbott pulled her back in.

"Ash" (Ashley's alter-ego)

Ashley sits on the middle bed with her eyes closed, seemingly asleep.

Ms. Abbot says it’s because Ash is interfering with her plan, and now she has to do damage control to get them back on track!

Ash says Ms. Abbott’s plan is dangerous and will backfire. They’re supposed to protect Ashley, not get her into trouble!

The Jazz Lounge

Summer tells Chance she’s worried about how getting fired will affect Daniel. She’d thought about calling her mom about it but decided that would be a “nightmare.”

Chance says he’s been bracing for Phyllis to storm into the office when she hears about Daniel’s firing.

Chance talks to Summer.

Summer says Chance must be worried about the blowback on Chancellor-Winters… Firing Daniel and Heather was a bold move.

Chance thinks it’s going to cause some HR issues.

Summer says Daniel didn’t consider the repercussions of getting back together with Heather.

Summer talks to Chance.

Chance says people usually don’t consider it when they’re in love.

Summer says OmegaSphere saved Daniel. Painting and art was Daniel’s passion, and when his career slowed down, he fell apart.

Chance asks if Daniel was the “starving artist” type.

Chance and Summer sit and talk.

Summer says it was worse than that. She explains that after he fell into his funk, Heather took Lucy and moved to Portugal to get away from his moods.

Chance says it’s hard to believe that the person who spun out was the same person who created their insanely successful gaming platform.

Summer says the game that Daniel made, Princess Louisa, is what brought him back to himself, to Lucy, and to Heather.

Summer Newman.

Chance says maybe OmegaSphere served its purpose, and Daniel doesn’t need it anymore.

Summer thinks he could be right, but she worries that having his new career yanked away from him might cause Daniel to spiral down all over again.


Daniel tells Lily he understands that she let him go from the company and OmegaSphere but begs her to let him keep Princess Louisa.

Daniel Romalotti talks to Lily Winters.

Lily asks why she’d do that.

Daniel says she’s the only one who understands what the game means to him. He created the game for Lucy and made the character Louisa in her image. He poured all his love for her and pain for messing up his relationship with her into the game, and Lily stood by and cheered him on and gave him the opportunity to bring Princess Louisa to life. He says it saved him and brought his daughter back to him. He’s not saying she shouldn’t be mad at him, but he wants her to remember why they built the game. He begs her not to take it away from him.

Lily Winters.

Ashley’s Mind

Ms. Abbott tells Ash she’s an idiot; doesn’t she see the emotional threat that Tucker poses to Ashley?

Ash tells Ms. Abbott she doesn’t scare her. She knows Ms. Abbott is dangerous and is putting Ashley at risk.

Ash talks with Ms. Abbott.

Ms. Abbott says Ashley is vulnerable when she’s around Tucker, and it’s her job for Tucker to get out of Ashley’s life for good.

Ash says Ms. Abbott is making things worse; she knows what Ms. Abbott has planned, and it scares her!

Ms. Abbott says it only scares her because she’s ignorant.

Ms. Abbott talks to Ash.

Ash says Ms. Abbott is gross. What if they blame Ashley for it? If that happens, they won’t have Ashley at all!

Ms. Abbott says Ashley won’t be blamed… Their “sweet little vessel” will be protected.

Ash asks how Ms. Abbott plans to protect Ashley.

Ashley sits on the bed, asleep.

Ms. Abbott says that Tucker’s “bimbo girlfriend” will take the fall for it.

Ashley sits on the middle bed, seemingly asleep and unaware of Ash and Ms. Abbott’s conversation.

Tucker’s GCAC Suite

Tucker brings the ring box out again and asks Audra if they should move on to a “more pressing” topic.

Audra says she’s surprised that Tucker didn’t bring up his proposal to Audra with Ashley.

Audra talks with Tucker.

Tucker raises an eyebrow; did she want him to bring it up to her?

Audra says she almost brought it up herself, but – she can’t believe she’s saying this – it seemed cruel.

Tucker says Ashley is still trying to push her way into their life.

Tucker McCall waves the ring in Audra's face.

Audra says Ashley is clearly troubled… Something’s happening to her.

Tucker takes the engagement ring out of the box and waves it around Audra’s face playfully. He asks if Audra feels sorry for Ashley.

Audra reaches for the ring with a smile, but Tucker pulls it away.

Audra grins at Tucker.

The Abbott Mansion

Jack says Ashley has been “moody” lately, but they’ve already discussed that… How did it turn into such a problem?

Traci says they need to talk about Tucker’s warning to Ashley. Tucker had told Ashley she needed to get professional help.

Diane, Jack, Billy, and Traci Abbott.

Jack, obstinate as ever, says it’s another of Tucker’s mind games. He says Tucker wants to sow doubt in their minds about Ashley’s mental health. He thinks Tucker figures Ashley has to be mentally unsound if she wants nothing to do with him.

Traci says that’s not it… She says Ashley started acting differently during their Paris trip, suggesting there’s a larger issue at play, and it’s not Tucker trying to play mind games. She says they’d never forgive themselves if Tucker is right, and they do nothing.

Jack says he’s sorry, but Ashley has warned him too many times to butt out of her business.

Diane and Jack Abbott.

Diane says it’s true; Ashley has made it clear she’s tired of everyone weighing in with their opinions about her.

Traci says it’s better to be wrong than to be sorry. She says she couldn’t live with herself if she ignored the warning signs.

Billy says they might want to give Ashley a bit of time to work things out on her own; after all, Ashley demanded that they back off. He asks Traci why she thinks it’s so urgent.

Traci says that things have gotten much more dangerous than they know.

Traci Abbott.

The Jazz Lounge

Chance tells Summer that, at first, he was surprised that Devon and Lily would fire Heather and Daniel so quickly, but then he remembered how he felt when Abby cheated on him, and he understood where Lily was coming from. He says betrayal hurts, and seeing someone every day at work because you run the company must be difficult.

Summer says she would have probably done the same thing as Lily, but it doesn’t stop her from worrying about her brother.

Chance and Summer sit and talk.

Chance says all Summer needs to do is be there for her brother.

Summer says falling in love is complicated no matter how many times it happens to you.

Chance says that when love works out, it’s worth it… Otherwise, they’d stop after the first time!

Chance smiles as he talks with Summer.

Summer says he’s a wise man.

Chance says he doesn’t like to brag. He smiles and offers his hand.

Summer takes his hand and heads to the dancefloor, where they dance slowly.

Summer and Chance dance closely.

Newman Ranch

Claire tells Cole that it might be too awkward for him to come to the lounge. She says she didn’t know Cole would be there when her mom said she’d tell her about Neil.

Cole says it’s fine and he doesn’t need to be protected. He was there and knows what happened. He says he wasn’t happy when Neil wanted to step in at that time, but now he can appreciate what Neil was willing to do. He says they were young, and he made some mistakes at the time.

Cole Howard smiles as he talks with Claire.

Claire says he might have made mistakes back then, but he’s there now and the best father she could have ever asked for.

Cole smiles and thanks her. He says he wants her to know her entire story, and Neil was going to be part of that story. Neil helped Victoria through a rough time, and Cole will always be grateful.

Victor tells Claire that Neil was a truly good man and a trusted friend.

Victor Newman talks to Claire as Nikki looks on.

Nikki says she and Neil helped each other through some rough times.

Claire says she learns about or meets people who have touched her life in unexpected ways every day. She can’t wait to learn more!

The Abbott Mansion

Jack asks Traci how things have become dangerous.

Diane and Jack Abbott.

Traci says she’s trying not to break Ashley’s confidence… She swore her to secrecy.

Billy can appreciate Traci’s wanting to keep Ashley’s secret, but their sister’s safety is on the line.

Jack nods. Out with it!

Traci says that Ashley is having blackouts, waking up in strange places, and not knowing how she got there.

Billy Abbott and Traci.

Tucker’s Suite

Audra and Tucker sit and talk over drinks. Audra tells Tucker when she talked to Ashley, it was like she was talking to two different people… There was a frantic, scared little girl, and then seconds later, she was talking to “Ashley on steroids,” who was in control and above it all. She says that’s who Tucker saw when he got there, and it wasn’t just a mood swing… It was jarring.

Audra Charles.

Tucker nods and says Ashley seems to be getting worse every day.

Audra says Ashley said “she” means to hurt you.

Tucker says he has a hard time believing Ashley would present a physical danger to him.

Audra says she assumed that Ashley meant she would hurt him emotionally… She had never even thought about Ashley doing him physical harm!

Tucker McCall.

Ashley’s Mind

Ash asks Ms. Abbott what she means… Is she going to pull Tucker’s girlfriend into this mess?

Ms. Abbot nods. She says her plan is genius and warns Ash to stay out of it; she might have to make Ash disappear for good!

Ash, Ashley, and Ms. Abbott.

Ash says she can’t do that… Ashley created her to protect her from Ms. Abbott!

Ms. Abbott says that’s sweet, but she’s the only one looking out for Ashley’s best interests.

Ash says Ms. Abbott is going too far, and she’s going to stop her!

Ms. Abbott says she’s the one who’s in control, and she’s stronger than Ash, and she’s even stronger than Ashley! She looks at Ashley and tells Ash that Ashley is so weak and vulnerable… Where would Ashley be without her?

Ms. Abbott talks to Ash.

The Jazz Lounge

Victor, Victoria, Claire, Nikki, and Cole walk down into the lounge. Victor walks over to Chance and Summer as they dance, saying it’s nice to see them both looking so happy.

Summer thanks her grandfather and says it’s nice to feel happy.

Cole, Victoria, claire, Nikki, Victor, Chance, and Summer.

Claire asks Summer how her “new buddy Harrison” is doing.

Summer says Harrison is “fine”. She doesn’t look happy about talking to Claire.

Nikki asks Summer and Chance to join them at their table… It’s a family night out; the more, the merrier!

Summer and Cole smile at each other as Victor and Nikki look on.

Summer and Chance agree, and Cole leaves to get a table for them.

Victor asks Summer if she wouldn’t mind talking with him for a minute. They head to the bar together, and Victor asks Summer why he gets the feeling that she’s not too happy with her new cousin… Is it because of what he’d told her about her?

Summer says Victor acts like everything that happened with Claire is ancient history, but only a couple of months ago, Claire tried to poison all of them… Yet now he’s here being “chummy” with her.

Summer talks with Victor.

Victor says he understands her concern, but she should know that they’ve all decided to move beyond it, and he hopes Summer will, too. He tells her to remember that they’re all the result of their upbringing, and Claire didn’t have a very good upbringing.

Summer says she doesn’t trust her because she went along with Jordan’s scheme.

The Abbott Mansion

Billy asks Traci if Ashley’s been drinking… Is that why she’s been blacking out?

Billy Abbott talks while Jack, Traci, and Diane look on.

Traci says she asked Ashley the same thing, and Ashley says she isn’t drinking. She says after Jack left yesterday, Ashley came home, and she was a wreck. She asked where Ashley had been, and Ashley admitted that she didn’t know where she was while she was gone.

Billy says that’s not good.

Traci says it’s not. She says Ashley woke up in a seedy motel and was thankfully alone but had no memory of how she’d gotten there, and there were no pills or alcohol involved.

Traci talks while Billy looks on.

Jack says it is serious.

Traci says it is and thanks Jack for realizing it.

Billy asks how long this has been going on for.

Jack Abbott.

Traci says she doesn’t know how long the blackouts have been happening, but thinks they’ve all seen Ashley acting erratically.

Billy nods. He reminds Jack that he’d had a run-in with Ashley at Society where she was acting like a child.

Jack says he had a similar situation with Ashley… She was sitting on the couch, binge-watching sitcoms in the middle of the day, and when he mentioned that he and Billy were concerned about her, she told him to tell everyone to stop bugging her and to leave her alone.

Traci says they need to look at the real possibility that something serious is happening with Ashley.

Traci Abbott.


Daniel tells Lily he hates that he hurt her and understands why she wouldn’t want to see him or Heather in the building.

Daniel Romalotti.

Lily says it’s too late for regrets now.

Daniel says if she lets him carve out this “tiny little piece,” he’ll gladly walk away from the rest of OmegaSphere.

Lily says he seems to think he has some sort of say in this. She understands his request, but granting it is another thing. She says Lucy forgave him and Heather is back in his bed again; they’re one big happy family! She says Princess Louisa served its purpose for him, and now it’s just another game… And she owns it!

Lily Winters.

Ashley’s Mind / Ashley’s Suite

Ms. Abbott tells Ash that she can’t fight her. She tells her to go back to sleep.

Ash refuses. Ms. Abbott isn’t the boss of her!

Ms. Abbott waves at Ash.

Ms. Abbott disagrees. She waves goodnight.

Ash is forced down onto the bed. As she lies down, she cries for help from Ashley.

Ms. Abbott tells Ashley that Tucker will be gone for good soon, and then she’ll be safe.

Ash sleeps as Ms. Abbott talks to Ashley.

Ashley (Ms. Abbott) opens her eyes and returns to the “real” world. She gets up from the sofa, turns on the light, and pulls out a compact. She looks in the mirror and gasps. “What the hell is this?”

Ashley pulls barrettes out of her hair and wipes off some of her hot pink lipstick. After running her fingers through her hair, she exclaims that it’s much better now. She says, “It’s time to go, Tucker.”

Ashley (Ms. Abbott) looks at herself in a compact mirror and smiles.

The Jazz Lounge

Claire, Victoria, and Cole look up at Neil Winter’s portrait. Claire asks how it happened that Neil wanted to have Claire in his life.

Victoria and Cole say they weren’t together when “Claire” was born… They were headed for divorce, and Victoria had started dating Neil when she found out she was pregnant.

A portrait of Neil Winters on the lounge wall.

Cole says he didn’t know yet.

Victoria says he didn’t know because he was dating Ashley at the time; they were both young and naive and didn’t make the best choices. She says that when she told Neil that she was pregnant, he wanted to get married and raise her as his own.

Claire asks if Neil loved Victoria that much or whether he was just a generous person to raise someone else’s child.

Claire smiles at her parents.

Victoria says that’s the type of person that Neil was, and if it had come to pass, Claire wouldn’t have been “someone else’s child” to Neil… She would have been his.

Cole says when he found out that Victoria was pregnant, he wanted to raise her as his daughter.

Victoria says her appendix burst, and she was rushed to the hospital where Claire was born.

Cole and Victoria talk to Claire.

Cole says they both thought that Claire had passed on.

Victoria nods and says that their grief drowned out anything else that had happened up to that point.

Nikki tells Victor she’s glad Claire is learning about Neil.

Summer, Nikki, Victor, and Chance.

Victor says naming the lounge after Neil was a wonderful idea; it keeps his name in everyone’s memory.

Nikki says Abby was the one who suggested changing the name of the lounge, and the dedication they did at the gala helped mend things between Devon and Lily… Neil would have been pleased about that, and now his children, grandchildren, and everyone else has a place to go to remember him. She says she misses Neil every day, especially at the AA meetings, but it feels safe and warm in the lounge, and it’s nice to feel “almost safe” somewhere other than the ranch.

Victoria asks if Nikki is worried about an “uninvited guest.”

Cole and Victoria.

Summer asks if Nikki thinks Jordan would show up.

Nikki says she’s not worried about that. Jordan wouldn’t dare show up, and the Newmans have their security detail looking out for her. She says she won’t let Jordan get to her anymore; she’s going to enjoy their family night out as best she can! She excuses herself to “powder her nose” and leaves the table, heading upstairs.

Victoria says Nikki seems a little “skittish” and wonders if she should go with her.

Victor tells Victoria to give her mother some time.

Victor Newman.

Halfway up the stairs, out of sight of the table, Nikki reaches into her purse and pulls out her bottle of vodka. She takes a swig.

Nikki drinks from her bottle of vodka.

Cole asks Victoria if she’d like to dance with him.

Claire tells Victoria to go ahead… She’s never seen her parents dance!

Victoria and Cole head to the dance floor as Claire looks on with a smile.

Summer, Claire, Cole, Victoria, and Chance.

Chance asks Summer if she’d like to “take another spin” with him.

Summer thought he’d never ask. They head to the dance floor as well.

Claire tells Victor she saw him talking with Summer. She asks him whether Summer thinks she’s a monster like Jordan.

Victor says she shouldn’t worry about it… She’ll win over her cousin like she won over the rest of the Newmans!

Victor Newman talks with Claire Grace.

As they dance, Victoria tells Cole she’s sorry for bringing up Neil to Claire and opening up old wounds between them.

Cole says she shouldn’t be sorry… It’s good for Claire to see that people can change.

Cole and Victoria dance and talk.

Victoria says Claire has come very far.

Cole says they all have, and he doesn’t think they’d make the same mistakes today that they did back then.

Victoria smiles at Cole as they dance.

Nikki makes her way back to the table. She tells Claire it “touches her heart” to see Victoria and Cole dancing.

Claire smiles and says her parents “just fit.”

Nikki, Victor, and Claire smile as they watch Cole and Victoria dance.

The music winds down, and Victoria thanks Cole for the dance.

Summer asks Chance if they have to stop dancing.

Chance grins and says they don’t have to, but standing there and swaying in silence would be kind of weird.

Chance Chancellor and Summer Newman.

Summer wonders whether it’d be weirder than making small talk with her new cousin. She reluctantly lets Chance walk her back to their table.

Victor raises his glass and proposes a toast. He says seeing them all together makes him very happy. “To family, the anniversary of my marriage, and to my lovely wife.”

Cheers are had, and glasses clink around the table.

Nikki looks Claire in the eye as she drinks her water.

Nikki Newman toasts with Claire.

Tucker’s Suite

Audra tells Tucker he wants a fairytale with her, but they’re no prince or princess.

Tucker scoffs. Says who?

Tucker McCall looks at Audra.

Audra says every fiber in her being says so, and so would his if he was honest with himself. She says they work because they aren’t traditional; trying to fit into a conventional love story would break them. She says he can have every day with her; it’ll be an endless adventure, and she’s all in, but she doesn’t want labels or documents attached to their relationship. She doesn’t want tiaras or diamonds… They’ll only ruin her!

Tucker laughs and says she sounds superstitious… Like a marriage certificate would be their death toll!

Audra says it’d be the end of “them.” There’s no doubt in her mind about that!

Audra Charles talks with Tucker McCall.

Tucker asks if she’s sure she’s not being swayed by all the drama with Ashley.

Audra smiles and says that’s not it. She and Tucker are in a great place! She plants a kiss on him and asks if that was a kiss of rejection or if it was a kiss of intense love.

Tucker says he needs another one to figure it out.

Tucker and Audra kiss.

Audra laughs and says he’ll get plenty of kisses later, but she’s late to meet Sally for a drink.

Tucker pretends to cry and says she’s such a tease.

Audra laughs. “That’s why you love me!” She kisses him again and leaves.

Tucker "fake cries."

The Abbott Mansion

Jack asks Traci how Ashley said she would handle things.

Traci says Ashley didn’t really say, but Traci suggested she see a doctor. She says Ashley agreed and was terrified about the blackouts and what was happening to her, but the next moment, Ashley brushed it all off and said there was nothing to worry about.

Jack, Billy, and Traci.

Billy asks what changed Ashley’s mind.

Traci says only Ashley’s attitude changed. She says they have to step in and help her.

Ashley arrives home. She greets everyone and says that everyone’s face is so grim… Who died?

Ashley (Ms. Abbott).


Daniel tells Lily he wanted to do this civilly and have a conversation about it; he wanted to appeal to her better nature but she leaves him with no choice. He’s going to sue Chancellor-Winters for wrongful termination, and he’s going to demand that he gets to keep whatever he wants from OmegaSphere, which was the platform he created.

Lily laughs and says he can try, but his contract is ironclad.

Daniel says he wouldn’t be so sure about that; Heather is going to represent him, and she rarely loses. He tells Lily to get ready for a fight, and he leaves the office.

Daniel smiles as he talks to Lily.

Newman Ranch

Victor and Nikki walk into the house. Victor says it was a wonderful evening, and hopes it provided some escape for Nikki.

Nikki says it did, but they never got around to making plans for the party.

Nikki Newman talks to her husband.

Victor says it’ll be a wonderful party; they’ll celebrate their years together and the years yet to come. He kisses her tenderly.

Nikki says they never ate anything at the lounge, and she’s starving. She asks him to ask the chef to make them a light dinner.

Victor thinks that’s a great idea. He leaves the room.

Nikki waits for him to leave and takes the bottle from her purse. She looks down the hall to ensure he’s gone and takes a quick sip. She tells herself she needs a sip to get her through the night, one sip at a time, until she gets through the party and Jordan is caught. She’ll be able to fight it once Jordan has been taken care of; until then, it’s slow and steady—a sip at a time, a day at a time. Nobody will have any idea.

Nikki Newman drinks from her bottle of vodka.

The Jazz Lounge

Summer caresses Chance’s hand and thanks him for being a good sport and hanging out with her family… Even her new cousin!

Chance looks like he wants to say something, but he doesn’t.

Chance talks with Summer.

Summer asks what he’s holding back on.

Chance says he has a good sense for people.

Summer grins and asks what his “spidey-sense” is telling him about Claire.

Chance says Claire is trying hard to get over her past and is trying to reach out to Summer… He thinks Claire wants a friend and wonders if it’s that hard for Summer to give her a chance.

Summer and Chance talk.

The Tack House at the Newman Ranch

Victoria, Claire, and Cole arrive at the tack house, and Victoria thanks Cole for bringing them home.

Cole thanks her for including him in their family evening.

Cole, Claire, and Victoria.

Claire says it was almost a perfect night.

Victoria wonders what she means by “almost.”

Claire says she doesn’t think Summer is happy with her. She says Victor told her that she could win Summer over, but she’s not so sure. She hates the idea of having enemies in the family.

Cole and Claire smile.

Victoria doesn’t think Summer will be an enemy.

Cole says Summer needs to spend more time with Claire to see how great she is.

Claire says she’s willing to try, but right now, she can’t think about anything except getting into her new bed. She says goodnight and heads to her room.

Cole talks to Victoria.

Cole tells Victoria he should go. He heads out the door.

Victoria stops him on the porch and thanks him for coming with them to the lounge.

Cole thanks her for the dance.

Cole and Victoria kiss.

Victoria says it’s been a long time since she had a dance… It was nice.

Cole says it was nice. He kisses Victoria, and she kisses him back.

The Abbott Mansion

Traci tells Ashley they were talking about how concerned they are for her.

Billy listens as Traci talks to Ashley.

Ashley says Traci betrayed her; she told her something in confidence, but she just “blabbed away.”

Traci says she’s worried about her… It was a secret she couldn’t keep; they can’t keep ignoring what’s going on with Ashley… Her behavior is a cry for help!

Ashley asks if this is a “sad excuse” for an intervention.

Ashley Abbott.

Jack says Ashley’s condition is more serious than they at first thought.

Ashley laughs. She has a “condition” now! She says she’s obviously not allowed to have conflicting feelings or even voice any doubts, or all of them will think she’s falling apart!

Jack says nobody’s saying that… If she’s having memory issues and blacking out, she needs to see a doctor!

Jack Abbott.

Billy says they all have her best interests at heart.

Traci nods. All they want to do is help.

The doorbell rings, and Billy gets up to answer it.

Tucker McCall enters the Abbott house.

Tucker walks in.

Ashley laughs and says that’s peachy… The gang’s all here!
