On the last episode of Y&R, Adam pressed Victor for details on his plans for him, and Tucker worked with Ashley to gain Devon’s trust back.
Kyle meets with Jack and Diane at the restaurant.
He lets Jack know that they’re getting the textile mills from Victor.
Jack says he doesn’t want to talk about that. He tells Kyle that they’re leaving town to escape Jeremy’s influence.
Kyle asks how Stark beat the charges.
Diane says that Stark was able to get past the charges because he had a good lawyer and that he delivered a package to Diane to rattle her and Jack. She says it was just a book, not dangerous.
Jack says that Stark suspects they set him up and so does Chance. He says that the police won’t get involved and arrest Stark without any proof.
Kyle says that Stark’s mere presence is a threat.
Jack says that the Abbott home is secure and they’re just leaving town so that Stark won’t be tempted to come after them.
Jack says that hopefully Stark will get bored and move on while they have a romantic getaway.
The Abbott Mansion
The doorbell rings. Summer opens the door, it’s Phyllis.
Summer asks what she’s doing there.
Phyllis says that she doesn’t need to remind her that she’s not welcome, she’s there to turn things around.
She asks if they could have coffee and talk to get things back to what they used to be. She tells Summer that she’s the light of her life.
Summer doesn’t say anything.
Phyllis says she’s going to park herself on the sofa and won’t move until they talk.
Summer says she appreciates her attempt to talk, but she has to get to the office.
Phyllis says she only has one mom, this is more important than work. She apologizes for anything she’d done to harm their relationship.
Summer thanks her, but she says she doesn’t have the time or energy to get into things, and she spoke with Daniel, who told her about how Phyllis had interfered in his life too.
Phyllis asks if Summer and Daniel are colluding against her.
Summer says that it’s just an example of how Phyllis operates. She says that she just can’t keep forgiving her for interfering.
Phyllis says she’s only trying to help, to protect her children. She asks why it’s wrong of her to do that.
Summer says that there’s always an excuse. She asks her to admit that she screwed up.
Phyllis says that she admitted that she lured Jeremy Stark to town. She says she refused Jeremy’s offer to hand over Diane.
Summer says that Phyllis is supposed to do right by her, but she’s messed up a lot lately.
They argue about Phyllis interfering with Daniel, and Phyllis brings up the fact that Nikki has been doing shady things as well.
Phyllis says she’ll never change, and that she’s tired of fighting for what she thinks is right. She says that she’s the one who’s had enough.
Summer says that Phyllis has a blind spot when it comes to her own issues. She says that Phyllis’s actions often aren’t helpful and that it breaks her heart to see it.
She says that she’s been there for all of Phyllis’s failed relationships, and things always blow up when she’s involved. She says she needs to protect herself from any more hurt and disappointment.
She holds the door open, and Phyllis leaves.

Victoria says that Nikki said it might be her.
Ashley asks why they think she’d buy Tucker’s debt.

Ashley says that Devon would probably be the one to look at.
Victoria says that she looked into that angle and that Ashley is the most likely suspect.
Ashley asks what they would do if she was the one that bought Tucker’s debt.
