On the last episode of Y&R, Phyllis made her move on Diane, Nate reassured Elena about Victoria, and Jack & Diane shocked Kyle and Summer with their engagement announcement.
The Abbott Mansion
In the living room, Kyle says he didn’t see Jack and Diane’s engagement coming.
Jack says it made perfect sense, and the moment surprised him. It felt right.
Kyle says the timing is weird… They left town to escape Jeremy and came back when they found out that Stark had left.
He wonders if Jack proposed to Diane as a reaction to Jeremy Stark’s threats.
Jack says that the looming threat of Jeremy Stark wasn’t why he proposed. He says that this has been a long time coming.
Diane says that she knows that forgiveness must be earned.
Jack says he fell in love with Diane when he realized she was trying to protect Kyle, and she’s a changed person.
He says Diane has nothing left to prove, and he loves her and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. He says that their love has continued through the years, and they won’t deny it any longer.
Diane says they have wisdom now and they’ve matured into different people. She says they’re better together than they are apart.
Jack says that Diane is part of the family, and this is the natural next step.
Kyle says that a lot of people won’t see this as a natural next step, but he wants them to be happy.
Summer sounds a bit doubtful, but says that they do seem happy together.
Kyle says he needs time for it to sink in.
Diane asks that they see it in their hearts to agree with her and Jack’s decision to be together.
Jack asks them to keep quiet about it, as it would cause a lot of commotion if it came out.
Summer says they’ll keep it under their hats.
They leave, and Summer says to Kyle, “What the hell was that?“
Phyllis is outside of the restaurant talking on the phone with Jeremy Stark.
She says she’s moving on to the next step of their plan, but it’s going to take a while.
Jeremy asks why, seems like he’s threatening her.
She says she shouldn’t have to remind him not to hurt her family.
Lauren walks by and says hello. Phyllis says goodbye to Jeremy and smiles innocently at Lauren.
Phyllis and Lauren sit down at a table inside.
Phyllis seems nervous and agitated as she talks with Lauren. Phyllis thanks Lauren for telling her she was too intense earlier.
She wants to know about Lauren’s Bicentennial Party.
Lauren asks what’s going on, saying that Phyllis has weird energy.
The Grand Phoenix Hotel
Nick walks into the lobby of the hotel to meet Victoria. He sits down with her.
Victoria’s having a glass of wine and asks about Sally.
Nick says that she’s having a tough time emotionally, but she’s fine physically.
Victoria says that with Adam involved, it must be complicated.
Nick says that Adam’s been fine, surprisingly.
Victoria says Nick has the ability to see the best in people.
Nick laughs and says Victoria doesn’t have a heart at all.
Victoria says that it comes in handy when she’s dealing with people like Adam.
She says that since Adam is acting responsibly lately, they must watch out for him.
She says that Adam and Sally are better together than she is with Nick.
Nick says he doesn’t agree but can see why she’d say that.
Nick says that he’s worried that Adam will cause Sally stress, saying that neither Sally nor the baby need that to happen.
He says that when Victor is planning for Adam to run McCall when they take it over.
Victoria says that’ll never happen, he’ll have to figure out a way to get what he wants.
Nick says to let Adam and Victor do whatever they want, who cares.
Victoria says that she won’t let go of McCall and that it’ll end in disaster for Victor and Adam.
Nick asks if they should schedule the fight for another time.
Nate walks in and says to Victoria that he wants to finish talking about the deal.
Victoria says sure, that Nick just stopped by for a quick drink and is leaving.
Nick says he’d better get upstairs and wishes them a good conversation. He heads up on the elevator to see Sally.

The Grand Phoenix Hotel
After a while of drinking in the lobby, Victoria tells Nate that she figured she thinks Tucker’s taking a different path for getting rid of his business.
Nate asks what changed.
Victoria says that maybe he’s getting a bit soft.
She says that Tucker has a grandchild and a woman who he can’t get off his mind.
Nate asks if she means Ashley, who bought Tucker’s debt.
Victoria says that maybe Ashley did it to keep him under her control, maybe they’re mixing the boardroom with the bedroom.
She says that Ashley made a decisive move by doing that and that control is a powerful motivator.
Victoria leans in close to Nate.
Nate says that Tucker offered to sell his company to Devon. He wonders if Ashley has something to do with that decision.
Victoria says that Ashley and Tucker are dynamic and powerful people.
Nate says she’s testing him to see how far he’d go. It’s a game. As they speak, Victoria inches closer to him.
Victoria says that it’s definitely a game, and they’re not talking bout Ashley and Tucker anymore.
She says they have to talk about what’s going on between the two of them.
Victoria says she’s going to get a room upstairs and would really love it if he joined her.
She says she’d be understanding if he didn’t want to. She makes clear that this is separate from their business relationship, and would have no bearing on it.
Either way, she says, it’s up to him. She gets up and leaves Nate alone in the lobby.
