Genoa City is going to be ground zero for drama in this THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS fall preview! Victor struggles to keep the Newman family together, Nate and Devon’s conflict reaches a breaking point, Chelsea and Billy are drawn together, Kyle and Summer celebrate their love, and Mariah and Tessa struggle to complete their family.
Victor’s actions in covering up the true cause of Ashland’s death continue to affect the entire family and once again cause Adam to feel like an outsider. “Victor will have to manage this growing battle and animosity between Adam and Victoria that will push them in a surprising new direction,” co-executive producer and headwriter Josh Griffith told Soap Opera Digest. “Victor also sees Adam working for Jabot as going over to the enemy, and although Jack may be in Adam’s corner, nobody else at Jabot is.”
The Winters family is also fracturing due to the increasing animosity between Devon and Nate as they attempt to work together at Chancellor-Winters. “The tension between Devon and Nate is going to push Nate to take an action that could have ramifications throughout the family and the company that nobody sees coming,” the scribe previewed. “Lily sees this conflict building and she’ll do everything she can to make the peace, but it’s not going to work.”
Lily will also find herself dealing with Billy feeling left out at the family company while also reconnecting with Chelsea. “Chelsea and Billy’s kiss is something that she can’t forget, even though he’s very clear that it was a mistake and that he will not act on it in any way,” Griffith explained. “Chelsea will be unable to let that go, and as she moves forward into a very interesting realm for her that’s much beyond the podcasts, Billy will inevitably step in. Billy continues to feel that he’s an outsider at Chancellor-Winters because he’s not family. That’s going to create conflict with Lily as they try to manage business with the fact that they’re romantically involved.”
As the conflict between Diane and Phyllis continues, Kyle and Summer decide to focus on themselves for a change and celebrate their marriage. “In the midst of trying to keep the peace between their mothers, Kyle and Summer haven’t lost their passion, so they decide to renew their vows in Genoa City,” he declared. “We’re making up for the fact that fans never got to see their wedding, so Kyle and Summer are going to have a beautiful renewal of their vows on the Abbott estate.”
With Tessa’s health crisis in the past, she and Mariah have tried looking towards the future, but have already begun struggling with trying to adopt a child. “Mariah and Tessa are going to encounter all of the common obstacles that couples face when they’re trying to adopt,” Griffith revealed. “Sharon will be involved in this storyline that will lead into another storyline, where all of her training will be called upon — and I’m not talking about pouring coffee!”
So stay tuned to Y&R to watch all of these storylines — and more — continue to unfold!
