The Young and the Restless spoilers recap for Friday, September 18, tease that Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) will sit in her living room trying to generate a text to Adam Newman (Mark Grossman).
After several false starts, Sharon will text, “I know you think we crossed a line, but I needed that as much as you did.” Shortly thereafter, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) will visit Sharon under the guise of seeing how Sharon’s doing with her new diagnosis.
However, talk will soon turn to Adam, and Victoria will have learned from Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) that Sharon traveled to Kansas to help Adam.
Sharon will realize that Victoria is fishing for information about Adam, and she’ll say that she can’t disclose information. After a less contentious discussion about family and Sharon’s treatment plan, Victoria will go.
Meanwhile, Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) will be suspicious of Chelsea Lawson’s (Melissa Claire Egan) presence at Chancellor Communications. Billy will tell Chelsea that Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson) is the wrong person to talk to about her fashion influencing needs, and Chelsea will go.
Chelsea will end up back at the penthouse where she’ll whip out her phone and listen to what Billy and Theo discuss through the listening device she planted there.
Chelsea will listen as Billy asks Theo about Chelsea and how she ended up in their offices. Billy will say no harm done, and from her vantage point at the penthouse, Chelsea will smile.
Soon, Alyssa Montalvo (Maria DiDomenico) will arrive, and Theo will take off. Alyssa will tell Billy that their PI tracked down the wife of the missing man in Vegas, and she’s willing to go on record.
Chelsea will continue to listen as Alyssa and Billy talk about how it’s their duty to warn the world about Adam. As she’s listening, Adam will come down the stairs at the penthouse and wonder what she’s listening to.
Chelsea will take Adam’s phone to download the listening app for him, and she’ll see Sharon’s message. Chelsea will stop in her tracks.
Back at Chancellor Communications, Billy will tell Alyssa that he thinks Adam’s onto them, since Chelsea was there earlier. Alyssa will ask if Theo knows about the story, and Billy will say that he doesn’t know the story’s content.
Billy will want to send someone else to interview the wife in Vegas, but Alyssa will say that she’s definitely going. Alyssa will take off. Adam and Chelsea won’t hear that portion of the conversation, as they’ll be arguing.
At the penthouse, Chelsea will fire questions at Adam, wanting to know exactly what “line” he crossed with Sharon. Adam will explain that it was simply a conversation that got too personal, and he and Sharon mutually decided to quit therapy.
Chelsea will be peeved, and she’ll suddenly realize that Sharon was at the motel while she was there to get Adam. Chelsea will be furious, but she’ll be glad that Sharon will no longer be treating Adam, since they have real problems.
Chelsea will tell Adam that Billy and Alyssa plan to write a story exploring everything that Adam’s gotten away with over the years, and that they found the wife of the missing man in Vegas. Adam will say that it’s too bad that this won’t turn out the way that Billy expects.
Back at Chancellor Communications, Theo will talk with Billy, and Billy will shut down Theo’s efforts to talk about a possible project with Chelsea. Theo will then tell Billy that he did some research on Alyssa and that he knows she’s a reporter from Kansas.
Billy will tell Theo that it won’t be long before he hears more about the story that Alyssa is working on.
In Chancellor Park, Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) will spend some time together. Nick and Phyllis will look at the clouds and talk about their relationship and how wonderful it is.
Talk will turn to the differences between them, and Phyllis will share how she feels the need to brace for disaster since things are so great right now. Nick won’t think that’s necessary, and he’ll be more mellow about the whole thing.
Phyllis and Nick will end up at the Grand Phoenix in Phyllis’ suite for room service, and the two of them will talk some more about how they were careful in how they got to this point. Phyllis will vow not to betray Nick or ruin what they have. Nick will sweetly thank Phyllis for being her.
Back at Sharon’s place, Sharon will answer the door, and it will be Chelsea. “You stay the hell away from my fiancé. Understood?” Chelsea will fume. Sharon will stare blankly.
At Newman Enterprises, Victoria will call Billy, who will be at Chancellor Communications. Billy will tell Victoria that Alyssa is on board, and that she’s fired up to take Adam down.
Billy will explain that the story on Adam will be an indictment – a psychological profile dissecting everything Adam’s ever done, and that Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) will be “Dr. Frankenstein” in the story.
Billy will say that the working title is “The Making Of A Monster.” From the penthouse, Adam will be listening to every word.
