The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers update for Monday, September 7, teases that some secrets will be kept. At Sharon Newman’s (Sharon Case) place, she wakes up late and gets news from Noah Newman (Robert Adamson).
Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) said to tell Sharon he’d be at work most of the day, but she should call him if her test results come in.
Noah asks if Sharon’s nervous, so she admits it’ll be nice to know one way or the other. After Noah reassures Sharon that her loved ones are there for her, he mentions Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) – the one person Noah doesn’t want Sharon to hear from. Sharon admits she hasn’t heard a word since Adam showed up at the cottage.
A text comes in, but Sharon lets Noah know Adam didn’t send it. We see the text, which is from Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan) and asks if Sharon’s heard from Adam.
Sharon replies that she hasn’t, so Chelsea’s about to leave the penthouse when Chance Chancellor (Donny Boaz) arrives. Chance says he was looking for Adam, so Chelsea suggests he’s not the only one.
In Adam’s motel room, he calls Sharon and admits he hasn’t slept since he left her place. Adam asks if Sharon can come to his motel – just for a few minutes to talk. Sharon lies to Noah about an emergency at Crimson Lights and takes off.
At Newman Enterprises, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) discuss some business before Victoria finds a special envelope with her name on it.
She asks what this is, so Nikki hints that it’s an escape. She gives another pitch about Phyllis Summers’ (Michelle Stafford) exclusive club and how much Victoria needs this.
Talk turns to Adam and how he’s always Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) priority. Victoria intends to make herself indispensable at Newman Enterprises and promises she won’t burn out. “No escape necessary,” Victoria insists.
Meanwhile, Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) calls Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson), who isn’t busy since it’s quiet at the office. Lola suggests that since Theo’s bosses are AWOL, he could come to Society for lunch. Theo tells Lola to book his reservations.
Lola runs into Summer Newman (Hunter King), who’s there alone since Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) is away on business. Summer acknowledges that Theo isn’t around. “Give him some time,” Lola quips. “He keeps coming back because he likes what’s here.”
Back at the penthouse, Chance admits he’s worried since he hasn’t been able to get in touch with Adam. Chelsea suggests that all couples go through rocky patches, but she can’t work out her problems with Adam if he’s not there.
Chance thinks it might be best if Adam stays off the grid for a while. Chelsea’s concerned by Chance’s updates on Alyssa Montalvo’s (Maria DiDomenico) Vegas story. “That’s not good,” Chelsea admits. It’s the last thing they need right now. Chance hopes Alyssa will reach a dead end and give up, but Chelsea thinks that’s wishful thinking.
In Adam’s motel room, he’s sorry he sounded so desperate on the phone. Adam thought isolating himself would help, but it turns out being along with his thoughts hasn’t been such a good thing. Sharon agrees Adam shouldn’t be alone – though she doesn’t think this motel is the best place for him.
Adam insists he can’t go back to Chelsea and Connor Newman (Judah Mackey). Sharon argues that Adam isn’t a monster who needs to be caged off to the rest of the world. She doesn’t see a connection between the childhood cover-up and how many times Adam and Victor have hurt each other over the years.
Adam’s been reexamining everything and doesn’t think anyone can help him – not even Sharon. No one else is living this. Adam feels like he’s in the eye of a cyclone and getting swallowed up. Sharon thinks it sounds like Adam’s given up, but he says he wouldn’t have called her if he thought that.
Sharon argues that Adam keeps saying they have nothing to talk about, so she’s not sure why he wants her there. “Because…because…’cause you know how to make me feel better,” Adam admits. Sharon contends that’s not how therapy works, but Adam’s not talking about therapy. He’s talking about Sharon.
Sharon’s seen Adam at his lowest and they’ve helped each other survive the impossible before, but things are different now in Sharon’s opinion. She can’t pull Adam out of the cyclone unless he meets her halfway. Adam has to see that there’s a path forward.
Summer is surprised to see Noah at Society, so they take some time to catch up. Noah rants about Adam, but then shifts gears. What else has been going on in GC? Summer doesn’t think there’s much to tell, but Noah disagrees. It’s like someone took all the relationships in town and threw them in a tumbler!
Summer brings up Phyllis and Nick Newman’s (Joshua Morrow) reunion. She hopes it last, even though history suggests otherwise. Noah notes that some people are saying the same about Summer and Kyle’s relationship. Summer doesn’t care and feels like she’s finally on the right track with Kyle now.
The conversation shifts to Lola working there and dating Summer’s ex. Summer admits it’s a little awkward, but they’re dealing with it as best as they can. Lola’s been “pretty decent” and probably deserves better than Theo, who’s kind of into himself and not really the most reliable guy.
In the kitchen on Monday’s Y&R episode, Lola texts Theo about having a surprise for him when he gets to Society. At Chancellor Communications, Billy comes back from his meeting and wants to bounce ideas around. Theo puts his phone away and says he’d love to.
After Billy and Theo discuss plans, Billy says he likes the way Theo’s fitting in around there. Theo brings up another idea, so Billy thinks they should talk about it right now – unless Theo’s got somewhere else to be. “Nowhere but here! Impressing the crap out of my new boss!” Theo exclaims. Billy thinks that’s a good answer.
Back in the kitchen, Lola makes some empanadas and looks perturbed over the lack of messages on her phone. Over at the penthouse again, Chance can tell Chelsea’s holding back and pushes her to be straight with him. Chance wants to know what Chelsea isn’t revealing.
Chelsea alludes to Adam dealing with something that could devastate their family, but they just have to find Adam first. “OK, you can count on me,” Chance promises. He’ll start looking for Adam and will be in touch.
In Adam’s motel room, he insists his life is a long litany of hurt and pain. Adam argues that he’s damaged everyone around him. He called Sharon because Adam’s been shoved in front of a mirror years too late because of Victor.
Adam thinks maybe he should just accept who he is. As much as he hates the thought of it, he doesn’t think he can go back to his old life. Sharon doesn’t think walking away from everyone who loves Adam is the solution. Adam thinks it’s the only solution.
Sooner or later, Adam’s going to inflict the damage he’s done onto Chelsea and Connor. “The choice is either to hurt them a little now or a whole lot later,” Adam insists.
Sharon doesn’t buy that and points out that she lied to Chelsea about not hearing from Adam. Sharon’s lying to Rey and Noah as well. That’s her choice, but Sharon does need to know Adam’s willing to put the work in.
Adam’s still struggling, so Sharon decides he’s exhausted and that’s making matter worse. Adam argues that he can’t sleep, but Sharon counters that Adam barely has the strength to stand up.
What could it hurt to lie down? Sharon plans to stay with Adam until he falls asleep – and that’s what she does. Later, Adam wakes up startled and Sharon’s already gone.
In Victoria’s office, Nikki warns that sometimes you don’t see burnout coming. Victoria feels like Nikki’s doubting her, but Nikki argues that’s not true. It’s just a way to rest and recharge. Nikki’s proud of Victoria – she’s winning the race! Nikki just wants to make sure Victoria reaches the finish line and encourages her to give this escape idea some thought.
Theo’s conversation with Billy has turned fun at the Chance Comm office. They discuss baseball and other topics that Billy suggests some people might view as unproductive. Billy thinks it’s important to daydream a bit, which can make for some long nights. Theo’s fine with that and has nowhere else to be.
As for Lola, her empanadas are done and there’s still no Theo to eat them. Lola checks her phone again, rolls her eyes and sighs angrily. After picking up the empanada tray, Lola dumps them all in the garbage and sulks.
By the bar, Noah walks over and introduces himself. “Is there something I can help you with?” Lola saying, clearly annoyed. Noah says that’s OK; he just wanted to acknowledge that they have some people in common. After Noah explains that he’s Sharon’s son and is in town for a visit, Lola shrugs and tells him to enjoy his stay.
Noah returns to the lounge area and asks if Lola’s always like that. “Like what?” Summer wonders. “Barely polite?” Noah replies. Noah jokes that maybe Lola doesn’t like him because of Summer.
Later, Theo’s grinning as he struts in and finds Lola. He recaps his brainstorming session with Billy, but Lola wonders why he couldn’t take two seconds to text her back.
Theo lost track of time and didn’t think their plans were set in stone. Lola needs to get back to work. “Are you mad though?” Theo wonders. Lola tells Theo to just drop it and leaves him looking pensive.
Back with Victoria, she’s grateful to Billy for taking the kids an extra night. Billy wonders if Victoria’s working late, but she’s not sure yet. “Whatever it is, I hope you enjoy it,” Billy says in Monday’s Young and the Restless episode. Victoria gazes as her escape club envelope after she hangs up.
At Crimson Lights, Sharon gets the call she’s been waiting on and is surprised to learn she’s being put on hold. “I have to come in to get the results of the pathology report?” Sharon says moments later. She wants to come in as soon as possible.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Sharon’s got a tough blow in her future, so stay tuned to Y&R. CDL will have all the hot Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news you’re looking for, so be sure to check back often.
