The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers recap for Monday, November 25, teases that a special episode is on the way. In honor of Peter Bergman’s 30th anniversary, Y&R viewers will see a show full of flashbacks and Abbott family memories. Let’s get to all the action happening on Monday.
First, Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland) will mention Ashley Abbott’s (Eileen Davidson) coming home early for Thanksgiving. She’ll also give Jack their completed memoir and urge him to read it. Jack will plan to treasure every sentence and will get choked up as he reads the preface. Traci wrote that it’s a labor of love. They’re the Abbotts, and this is their story…
Jack will read about John Abbott (Jerry Douglas), who promised to be best father he could be after the destruction of his marriage. The Young and the Restless spoilers say Jack will recall memories of John as well as Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams). He’ll think back on Dina visiting, including when she wanted to marry John again and reunite their family.
Jack will reflect on how there were a lot of obstacles working against that reunion. He’ll also remember when John died and how he vowed to look after the Abbotts for his dad. Next, Jack will recall Dina telling her son she loved him after receiving her Alzheimer’s diagnosis. The book will eventually shift to some corporate details, including Jack’s war with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and his blood Abbott feud with Ashley.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say some memorable flashbacks will be played – like Jack’s legendary CEO-chair-through-the-window scene. We’ll also see the time Victor had a heart attack during a fierce faceoff with Jack. Jack will read about how the Abbott and Newman families are intertwined due to the longstanding rivalry, which has settled down. According to Traci, only time will tell whether this is a paradigm shift or just another calm before the storm.
Next, Jack will think back on his romantic developments over the years. He’ll read about Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and recall their baby that didn’t survive. Jack will remember Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) always pulling him back in. “Red” was certainly an important part of Jack’s history.
Soon after, Traci will return with Ashley and Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson). Jack will ultimately continue reading the book, so there’ll be more memories. He’ll remember giving Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) his cufflinks and making amends with Billy, who was stuck in the rubble at The Underground. There’ll be a flashback of Traci remembering how it was Ashley their father always called “My Beauty.” Jack will also recall how he apologized to Ashley after their blood Abbott battle got so nasty.
Jack will finish reading and get emotional again about how their story will live on. Kyle, Dina and Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) will show up next. They’ll all celebrate how creative Traci was in putting this memoir together. Traci will think they have to give her co-writer credit as well. Jack will feel like he learned a lot from this whole experience. He’ll express his gratitude to the family before they all share a toast.
