Y&R Recap – Mon Feb 19: Seth Sets Up a Meeting With Nikki at Jordan’s Urging, Audra Accepts Tucker’s Invitation to Paris, and Ashley Sinks Deeper Into Delusion

Jordan, Seth, Audra, and Ashley.

Today’s Young and the Restless recap airs in the USA on Monday, February 19, 2024, and airs one day ahead in Canada. We post our Y&R recaps every weekday!

Last Episode

Seth, Jordan, Billy, and Chelsea.

On the last episode of Y&R, Jordan got her claws into Seth, while Chelsea & Billy de-stressed with an afternoon delight.

Newman Ranch

Nikki tells Victoria and Victor that her first impulse was to walk – not run – to a bottle after she hung up from speaking with Jordan.

Victoria pleads for her to tell her she didn’t do that. She’s relieved when her mother tells her that she didn’t, thanks to Jack and Victor.

Nikki feels that taking Jordan on head-on will give her something to focus on instead of drinking. She exclaims she is still here and getting stronger every moment.

Nikki’s phone rings and Victor demands it to be given to him, but Nikki refuses.

Nikki listens to Seth as Victoria and Victor look on.

The Abbott Mansion

Kyle, Jack, and Diane ask an obviously worried Ashley how she is doing and invite her out with them to eat dinner.

Ashley claims there’s no need to supervise her and just to bring her back some cheesecake.

Jack claims he’s not supervising her, but Ashley corrects him and says he is… And he’s good at it!

Diane and Jack Abbott.

Tucker’s GCAC Suite

Tucker and Audra lie in bed, holding hands and talking their typical bed/business talk.

Tucker tells Audra that she will make the whole city of Paris new to him and that he will not allow Ashley Abbott to ruin that wonderful city for him.

Audra talks to Tucker.

Audra longs for more proof that Ashley is out of his system, and he leans in and kisses her.

Tucker claims Ashley could never compete with her. They agree that after all they’ve been through, after all the years of denying their feelings for one another, they are now unstoppable.

They snuggle up closely.

Audra smiles at Tucker.

Newman Ranch

It’s Seth on the phone. He tells Nikki that he really needs her help. He says he hopes she can do for him what he was unable to do for her.

Jordan sits with Seth at the table and simply smiles and nods as he lures Nikki in for her.

Seth talks to Nikki as Jordan looks on.

Seth tells Nikki that this is a rather impulsive call for him to make because he knows she is struggling, too. He thinks they should both be able to help each other as fellow travelers on this path they are on.

As Jordan motions for him to continue, Nikki asks where he is. She says she cannot see him if he’s been drinking at the bar.

Seth claims he hasn’t had anything to drink yet, and she instructs him to leave the bar and meet her at Crimson Lights for a cup of coffee.

Nikki on the phone.

Jordan sips her cocktail and smiles.

Victor refuses even to consider Nikki leaving the house as long as that woman is running around out there.

Nikki claims there is no harm in her meeting her former sponsor at a place that doesn’t even serve alcohol… What could be the possible harm in that, she asks.

Victor Newman.

The Genoa City Athletic Club

Tucker and Audra are having dinner and discussing business.

Audra wants to understand the bigger picture. Do they set up everything here or move it all to Paris? She says it’s scary to finally let her guard down with him and start a real, honest life together… It doesn’t feel real.

Audra looks at Tucker with a grin.

Tucker tells her it is real, and it’s long overdue. Genoa City is his answer as to where the home location will be, but he stresses to her it is not about Ashley at all.

Audra thinks it’s mostly about staying near Devon and Dominic.

Tucker claims he resorts to anger rather than dealing with pain.

Tucker smiles at Audra.


Abby seats Jack, Kyle, and Diane for their dinner.

Jack laughs as Abby, Kyle, and Diane look on.

Kyle makes a toast to Jack, and Diane seconds it. They both admire what he is doing to help Nikki.

Kyle and Diane are surprised that Ashley seemed to be okay when they got home. Diane was expecting her to tear into her about her promotion to co-CEO and was surprised when that didn’t happen.

Jack claims that’s probably the last thing on Ashley’s mind right now.

Jack raises his glass.
