Y&R Spoilers, Monday, April 30

Y&R spoilers say Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) is working from home, when Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) approaches him about Sharon McAvoy’s (Sharon Case) “on edge” behaviory. He suggests that maybe learning what JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) did to Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), brought up feelings of when she was abused when they were teens.  Nick feels they need to get Sharon talking to them.

Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) comes to see Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) at the ranch and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) shares that Victor is frustrated. He doesn’t like to be in another less than top shape. Neil takes it as a sign that he must be on the mend. Nikki calls out for Victor but discovers that Victor is gone!

Phyllis Summers (Gina Tognoni) and Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) meet for breakfast at the GCAC. Billy gives her a kiss and thanks her for being incredibly understanding as Victoria detoxes from the JT problem while they take care of the kids. Billy says Phyllis needs a break and he plans to drop the kids off at Victoria’s later but Phyllis insists they need to keep them longer and Billy demands to know why.

Will Nikki choose Victor or her boy toy?

Victor Pushes Himself

Sharon finds Nick and Mariah and wants to know what is up with them. They pretend they are planning a surprise for her birthday, which is months away.  Mariah quickly leaves and Nick takes a call from Faith’s school, about an incident.  Nick says they won’t go into detail and they both leave for the school. Soap Central spoilers promise things get tense this week at the home Nick and Sharon share.

Neil and Nikki find Victor in the barn, where he doing his physical therapy among the horses and dictating notes at the same time.  Nikki shakes her head to Neil.  Nikki tells them to take a break and suggest they tell the cook what they would like for lunch.  Nikki reminds Victor to not take these risks as he is surpassing everything the doctor expected.  He says people like JT prey on the weak.

Sharon and Nick want to know what happened from Faith after she got suspended for half a day.  She says Thomas deserved it, as he loves to pick on girls – in class by text and posting about them.  It is not specifically about her but about her friends.  The friends decided to confront the kid in homeroom. Faith said she wasn’t going to stoop to his level, but her friend changed her mind because she said if she stayed silent than it was basically being okay with everything Thomas was doing.

Phyllis Shields Vicki

Phyllis asks Billy to consider everything Victoria is going through right now – JT the abusive ex.  Reed jetting off to boarding school. Phyllis feels a few more bubble baths and just relaxing and reading would help carry her through a few more days and she enjoys having the kids stay with them.  Billy appreciates that but knows she is lying her ass off.

He knows it’s going to take more than one girls’ night out for them to be best pals and that is why he appreciates it even more that she is putting their differences aside to support Victoria, a woman she doesn’t really like. Phyllis admits she didn’t want to go, feeling the party was going to end a specific way and ended totally different. Phyllis says when she sees a woman up close, dealing with what she is dealing with it shifts their perception of them and you can’t really make fun of them anymore.

Billy talks to Phyllis about Victoria and JT, questioning if Victoria had any clue about what was going on with JT.  Billy wants to text Victoria to see if she would discuss that with him. Phyllis thinks that is not a conversation she would want to have with him.  When Phyllis says  Victoria needs time to grief, Billy says he is on the run, not dead; Phyllis says for women when a relationship ends, it is more like the process of a death and they grieve and then move on.

Why would Victor and Kyle protect Jack’s paternity secret.

Neil Counsels Victor

Young and the Restless spoilers for tomorrow say that Neil talks to Victor, who says whatever JT did to him, he is going to work out harder and stronger. Victor is determined to be back in a week.  Nikki is shocked, while Neil says he is just showing off.  Nikki says she will also do a bit of showing off, as acting CEO, she has everything under control including having Victoria and Ashley getting along and reporting to her.  Victor says he has nothing to prove except to teach a lesson to JT Hellstrom. Victor says he will teach him that he failed.

Nick tells Faith that standing up to a bully takes way more courage than trashing people online.  Her heart was in the right place.  Sharon agrees that she had to stop him.  Faith says they went to the soccer field after homeroom because Thomas’ class after homeroom is gym.  Faith told him he only picks on girls because he thinks they won’t fight back, but one day, one will.

She called him a weak pathetic loser with no friends and always will be.  Everyone laughed at him. He cried and the gym teacher showed up.  Faith explained to the teacher what happened and they were sent to the principal’s office – but now her 3 friends won’t talk to her.

Nikki Worries

Other Y&R spoilers for 4/30 promise that Nikki understands what Victor went through when he was young. It’s one of the reasons she loves him.  She understands why he is so driven. Victor says then she should understand why he has to do this, but Nikki says he is testing the limits of his body and his life, only for JT to know that he didn’t win.  She promises him that wherever JT is, he already knows this.  She leaves upset and asks Neil to talk some sense into him.

Neil asks if he has found any information on JT. The Mustache admits him nor the police have found anything but informs Neil about the hidden camera and the footage of JT assaulting Victoria.  Neil is in utter shock and Victor says Neil would do the exact same thing Victor is doing if it were Lily Ashby (Christel Khalil) who were assault.  Neil promises as the head of PR for Newman Enterprises he will do anything to help Victor. Victor asks him for a double shot of tequila.  Neil takes it out and dumps it out on the floor as Victor protests.

WHy did Daniel Goddard tell fans goodbye?

Nick Comforts Faith

Faith sits on Nick’s lap, as he tells her she can talk to them about anything.  Nick says she should have got an adult to talk to Thomas, but he is very proud of her for telling the truth.  He makes her promise that if she sees someone getting bullied to grab an adult and no more vigilante justice!  Nick and Sharon talk about it.

Neil tells Victor he’s being his friend after having very serious surgery. He says if Victor dies from complications from surgery because he decided to drink, then Nikki is right – JT wins! Neil gives him a bottle of water and his towel.  Victor thanks him and says one good thing happened – Nick came by. Neil says it doesn’t surprise him because Nick loves him and is trying to survive in a life dominated by Victor’s very imposing shadow.

Nick meets with Nikki at Crimson Lights, where Nikki reveal that Victor knows about Nikki and Arturo (Jason Canela) relationship, and now wants him off the project, citing Arturo is overcharging the project.  Nick is furious saying this is all about Victor’s ego.  Phyllis stops by their table and both Nikki and Phyllis learn about the emergency meeting they had at Faith’s school earlier. Phyllis and Nick agree with Faith but Nikki doesn’t think so. Nick voices his concerns about Sharon with her nightmares, stressed out and insomnia.

Sharon’s Cracking Up

Neil shares that Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) is a genius when it comes to the music industry but he made some unfortunate decisions in both his professional and personal life.  Victor says that at least Victoria got a lot closer to Nikki through this thing with JT.  Neil asks if he cares to share his recipe for a long and happy marriage?  Victor says they expanded their boundaries to include another partner.

Nikki says they need to monitor Sharon, be supportive and remind her of what JT did and what they all stand to lose if anyone should find out – but no browbeating.  Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan) comes in and asks them what the big secret is.  She questions them about JT’s mysterious disappearance and Nikki warns her not to use her little show to bank on Victoria’s pain!

Hilary Digs

Hilary sits with Phyllis, saying she has nothing but compassion for Victoria, but she heard about their girls’ night from Mariah.  Phyllis perks up and asks what she said.  Mariah says she got really drunk, passed out and remembers very little.  Hilary says she was the originator of the GC’s Girls Night and asks why she wasn’t invited.  She gets visibly upset and shares that she isn’t pregnant and the home pregnancy test gave her a false positive. Now she doesn’t know what she is going to do after she announced she was having Devon’s baby live on her show.

Sharon tells Mariah she was upset after what happened at Faith’s school, but Mariah doesn’t buy it.  She demands to know the truth, as she has been like this for days.  Mariah begs her to tell her as she can take the secret to the grave if she wants her to.

Phyllis says they should take this as a sign as it wasn’t meant to be.  Hilary reveals she hasn’t told Devon yet because of Simone. Phyllis is surprised that Simone has moved up to “girlfriend” status.  Phyllis says it is too bad she can’t use the sample Devon gave her and go through the IUI way anyway.  Hilary hugs her and says she is a genius.

Mariah Pushes Her Mom

Mariah tells Sharon she can trust her and Sharon says, in a way she can’t trust anyone else but it is so hard in where to start and she isn’t sure what Mariah will think of her once she hears it.  Sharon begins to talk about Nick and Christian saying she is sending him mixed signals when he is in such a vulnerable place right now.  Sharon says no more and it means a lot that she and Mariah can talk about this any time.  Mariah watches Sharon walk away, but is confused.

Neil gives Victor the heavier weights, tells him to use the lighter weights and he drops them.  Victor says he is so sick of sitting in this damned thing and puts his feet on the ground.  Neil says he is going to get him help and Victor says no.  He stands up, takes a step and falls, as Neil rushes to his side.
