A lot can happen in a day in Genoa City, so it’s easy to get lost. If you’ve missed anything that happened over the last week or so on the soap, our THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS recaps can help you get back up to speed in no time!
Phyllis and Nick used the Jaboutique launch party to let everyone know that they were coupling up again. As a countermeasure, Billy brought Sharon as his date. Despite their public appearance, Sharon resisted Billy’s advances, insisting that she didn’t want to pursue revenge sex. Rather than be upset, Billy thanked her for the reality check. Later, Sharon found herself succumbing to her desire for Rey… but before they made it to bed, they were interrupted by Rey’s estranged wife, Mia, who wanted to reconcile. While Rey agreed to give their marriage another shot, he balked at jumping into bed with the beauty. Meanwhile, Mia befriended Phyllis and Abby. However, Abby’s friendship with Mia cooled when she learned that Arturo and Mia had had an affair, which caused Rey’s estrangement with his wife. Initially, Abby backed away from her beau until Lola explained that Arturo and Mia had been an item, but she had married Rey when Arturo refused to commit! Abby agreed to give Arturo another chance — but not Mia! Across town, Nick asked Phyllis to move in with him. After hemming and hawing, a bit, she accepted.
Tessa Is the Blackmailer!
Mariah and Tessa moved in together, but their relationship hit a huge snag when Sharon’s daughter discovered her girlfriend had been squirreling away cash in her futon. Needless to say, Mariah demanded answers, and when Tessa refused to give them, she walked out! Mariah eventually learned that Tessa had been blackmailing the women who buried J.T.’s body, which prompted an alarmed Mariah to confront Sharon about that night’s events! After ordering Tessa to had over the incriminating evidence she had on the ladies — and making her turn the money over to charity — Mariah moved back in. But Tessa had actually kept the cash and made an extra copy of the evidence! When Rey revealed that he believed Victor had killed J.T., Nikki demanded Sharon pump the detective for information. Instead, Sharon considered quitting the GCPD… at least until Rey changed her mind.
