Y&R Wednesday, April 25 Recap

As Wednesday’s Young and the Restless begins, Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) straightens up his tie as he arrives for his first day back on the job at Jabot. He exits the elevator, finds Jack’s office door closed, and messages Phyllis Summers (Gina Tognoni), asking where she is.

Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) greets him and Billy admits it all feels a bit surreal to him. Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) congratulates them and learns Billy’s new title is “Chief Operating Officer of Jabot” – he’s Jack’s second in command. Kyle is disappointed Jack didn’t pick him for the job. Billy thanks Kyle for botching the sale of Jabot and making it possible for him to return.

Phyllis and Victoria Talk Murder

Phyllis is at Victoria Newman’s (Amelia Heinle) house but she lies to Billy saying she is meeting with a vendor and should be at the office soon. Victoria tells Phyllis about the visit with Paul Williams (Doug Davidson). She says he knew about JT Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) abuse because Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) installed cameras and recorded the abuse. Phyllis wonders if there are more cameras around the house.

At the ranch, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) finishes shaving Victor’s face, when she informs him she is having a New Hope meeting there a little later and says he is welcome to join them if he feels up to it. The doorbell rings and Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) arrives. Victor wants to speak to him about something.

Reed Vents to Sharon

He vents that his dad is gone and he doesn’t know if he is going to come back. Reed doesn’t know if talking about it is going to make it better. He says his dad worked so hard to be a part of his life again and he doesn’t understand why he would “ghost him” like this.

In Jack’s office, Billy messages Phyllis, teasing that making him wait for her is “so hot!” Jack continues barking orders at Kyle about organizing the records room. Jack tells Billy he will hit the ground running with a complete review of Jabot’s manufacturing facilities. Jack is also placing Jabot’s R&D priority list in his hands.

Billy reminds Kyle that he thinks small and Billy is the one who knows what women want.

Ladies Worry About Hidden Cameras

Victoria reminds Phyllis that if there were more video footage, they all would be answering for rolling JT in the rug. Phyllis admits it is creepy that her father had her under video surveillance. She says it’s an invasion of her privacy. Phyllis suggests that Victor and JT are a lot alike with their control issues. Victoria admits she spoke to her therapist about it and that is why she let JT get away with it for so long.
