Y&R Comings and Goings Updated for March 2023
Ashley comes into Society and talks with Abby.
Abby tells her mom that Devon is going to sue Chancellor-Winters, and it’s going to be a big battle.
Ashley asks why she’s so concerned about Devon. She thinks that Abby made a “mistake” having sex with Devon and figures it was a one-time thing.
Abby says she wouldn’t call what happened between Devon and her a mistake. She says there were problems between Chance and her for a long time, and what happened with Devon sped things up.
Ashley says don’t get her wrong, she likes Devon.
Abby says that with everything that’s happening with Devon, nobody wins, and it could have a negative effect on Lily and her brother’s relationship.
Ashley says she knows how sibling problems are.
Abby asks what’s happening with Ashley and Jack.
Ashley says that there are problems between her and Jack, but she’s certain they’ll work things out.
Abby asks her what’s going on with her and Tucker.
Ashley says that Tucker came to take over Jabot and Chancellor-Winters, but he’s changed, and she’s trying to find out what he’s up to.
She tells Abby that Tucker wanted to bring company powerhouses together, and he wanted to get her and Devon to run the divisions, so maybe that part was true.
Abby asks if Ashley is going to take Tucker’s word.
Ashley says, “Hell no.”
She says that Tucker can’t seem to do the right things for the right reasons.
Abby says that he’s a habitual liar, and wonders why Ashley is going to give him another chance.
Ashley says she did something that she can’t say anything about, but she hopes it’ll force Tucker to do the right thing.
Ashley says she has to go, tells Abby she loves her, and leaves.
Nate is in Victoria’s office and he says they need to come up with a new plan for Tucker’s company.
He says that they should give up on it right now since the company is too expensive. He asks how far she’s willing to go to get it.
Victoria says that Victor wants to bring Adam back. She thinks the move is a monumental waste, as she has her own plans for McCall Unlimited.
She wants to take it apart and have Nate run the entertainment division of McCall when Newman takes it over.
Nate asks if everyone agrees that it’s worth taking the risk.
Victoria says they’d be crazy not to take the chance. She says that Tucker had powerful motivations when he came to sell the company to her.
Nate says that Audra will find out his motivations.
Victoria says they need to give Tucker a lot of money for his company.
Nate says that a high offer would allow him to just buy his debt pack.
Victoria says she needs a lot of information to make her move. She needs control.
He says she likes control.
She says it’s more important than money to her right now.
She steps over to him and kisses him.
Nate responds, and they passionately kiss and make out.
Audra comes to the closed office door as Victoria is working to open Nate’s collar as they passionately kiss.
Audra knocks on the door, and Nate and Victoria quickly disengage and Victoria runs over to her desk.
Victoria calls Audra to come in.
Audra comes in and sees them both looking flustered. She asks if she interrupted them.
Nate stammers and says that they were discussing if she’d gotten any useful information from Tucker.
Audra looks at them again with a smile and says she might have something useful.
Daniel and Lily are standing and speaking in the park. They’re laughing together.
Lily says she likes that they’re so comfortable with each other.

On the other side of the coffee shop, Lily and Daniel are talking. Devon sees them and without them noticing, he leaves the shop before he orders anything.
Daniel and Lily sit down at a table.
Daniel says he’s not passionate about the project right now.
Lily says that he’s so close to making a dream a reality, making something beautiful, and that he needs to do it for Lucy. She says that he’ll be able to help everyone when they log into this world he’s creating.
As they’re talking, Chelsea comes in the door and says that they’re just the people she was looking for. She asks if she can interrupt.

They move to a bigger table on the other side of the coffee shop.
Chelsea says that she went through a very hard time in her life, and recounts how she dealt with Rey’s death. She says that joining the podcast had given her purpose.
She tells Daniel about how she had given up Johnny for adoption, and how she revealed to him that she was his biological mother.
She tells him about how she was becoming closed-off and in a lot of pain, and she just wanted it to be over. She says she found herself on a ledge, and he helped her and talked her down.
She says that not everyone was as lucky as she was, and wants to use the game platform to reach people who feel like she did, people who are too scared to ask for help.
Daniel says that she wants to channel her bad experience into something that will help others.
Lily asks if she’s ready to take something like this on.
Chelsea says that her doctor supports her, and she tells them about how her ideas would fit into the game.
She describes how the main character would go through challenges that she overcomes, and learns coping mechanisms as she progresses through the levels.
Daniel looks intrigued and says that he can see the world she wants to create, he can see the potential.
Chelsea mentions she has a background in design, so she could really help with it.
Daniel thinks it could expand the scope of the platform. He loves the idea.
Devon is sitting at a table when Abby comes over with a bottle of wine, sits down, and pours a glass for herself and one for Devon.

Abby says she’s sorry that he has to go through this. She says they won’t sell his company back.
Devon complains about Nate and Tucker.
Abby says that she’s skeptical when it comes to Tucker, but she thinks that his plan may not have just been driven by greed.
Devon asks where she heard this about Tucker.
Abby says that she was speaking with Ashley when things took a strange turn.
Abby says that her mom told her that Tucker wanted to buy Chancellor-Winters and Jabot, but changed his mind. Ashely said that Tucker sometimes works in “mysterious ways”.
She says that she told Ashley about everything that happened between Devon and Lily.
Devon says that’s ok, he’s not ashamed of it. He wonders whether his and Abby’s relationship has changed.
Abby says they don’t have to find words for what they are to each other. They hold hands, and she says she just wants to be there with him.
He smiles and kisses her hand.
Tucker’s Hotel Suite
Ashley comes to Tucker’s room, and he invites her in. He says she’s a palate cleanser compared to his previous conversation.
She asks who that conversation was with, and he blows off the question, saying it was nobody important.
Ashley asks if Tucker’s going crazy, not being in control. She wonders if he’s really ready to divest himself of McCall Unlimited.
He says McCall Unlimited is part of his old life, and he wants to start anew… For the right price.
She asks him to prove it by not selling to Newman Enterprises. She tells him to sell to his son, Devon.
