The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers update for Wednesday, September 16, teases that some tense moments are in store on the CBS soap. At Sharon Newman’s (Sharon Case) house, Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) shows up and wants an honest answer about where things stand between them.
Sharon insists she’ll no longer be treating Adam as a patient, but her choice of words worries Rey. He wonders if Sharon will still be treating Adam as a friend.
Sharon contends that she’s focused on her treatment and doesn’t plan to see Adam. “Because you don’t want to or because you’re afraid you’ll upset me?” Rey asks. Sharon feels it’s what’s best for everyone.
Rey thinks that’s good to hear, but part of him is concerned about why Sharon’s backing off. He’s afraid it might be because Sharon feels she’s on the verge of crossing a line with Adam. Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) walks in and can immediately sense the tension, so she asks if she’s interrupting something.
Sharon assures Mariah it’s fine and Rey backs her up. After Rey leaves in a hurry, Mariah asks what just happened. “I think I may have just ruined everything,” Sharon confesses. She updates Mariah on the Adam trouble, so Mariah thinks Sharon has to make Rey a priority right now.
Mariah gets that it goes against all Sharon’s instincts to leave someone out there hurting, but Sharon’s health has to be what she concentrates on. Sharon feels like this “damn cancer” has taken over her life and she can’t get away from it.
At the penthouse, Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) warns Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan) that he doesn’t have it in him to hash things out again. Adam argues that nothing has changed, but Chelsea thinks that’s where Adam’s wrong. Chelsea has a plan now and pushes Adam to hear her out.
Adam argues that he just came back for some clothes and intends to return to the motel. Chelsea presses on and offers boarding school as a temporary solution for Connor Newman (Judah Mackey).
That way Connor’s not caught in the crossfire. Adam admits that sounds like a good idea, but he wonders who will protect Chelsea.
Chelsea doesn’t need protecting, especially not from Adam. She tells Adam not to walk away from her and reminds him that he has enemies. Chelsea mentions Alyssa Montalvo (Maria DiDomenico) teaming up with Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson), who could use all the power of Chancellor Communications to go after Adam.
Adam’s prepared to handle Billy and whatever else on his own. “I am your partner, your lover, your soulmate!” Chelsea insists. She wants Adam to stop shutting her out, but he goes upstairs. Chelsea gest an idea before she dashes into the other room.
When Adam reconvenes with Chelsea, she’s got their birth certificates as proof she’s not going to leave him. Chelsea thinks they should go down to the courthouse and get married right now.
Adam feels like that’s crazy and wonders why Chelsea would want to do that. “Because I love you, you idiot,” Chelsea declares. Chelsea insists what they have is ‘til death to them part.
Chelsea continues her speech about how they can protect Connor, beat Victor and come out on top of all this. Adam says he’s tried, but Chelsea promises things will be different this time. Adam knows the truth about himself – and Chelsea thinks that an empower Adam.
She has a deeper understanding of Adam and wants him to love and accept himself like she does.
“I’m yours, you’re mine and that’s that. Together, we are unstoppable,” Chelsea says. Adam decides he’ll stay, but he doesn’t think it’s necessary to get hitched immediately. He wants to let the wedding be a celebration after they declare victory over their many enemies.
Adam admits Chelsea got through to him, so Chelsea’s ready to bring Victor to his knees. They’re going to take down Victor and anyone who tries to protect him. “This is war,” Adam insists on Wednesday’s Young and the Restless episode.
At the Grand Phoenix, Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland) learns that Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) wants to put her detective skills to good use. Jack explains that he thinks there’s more to Dina Mergeron’s (Marla Adams) message, but Traci worries that Jack’s looking for reasons not to go after love again.
Jack argues that before he talked to Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford), he didn’t even consider the idea it could be something else. “You would rather believe Phyllis than what very well may be our mother’s dying wish for us?!” Traci asks.
Jack just wants to watch the digitized home movie and see if there’s something they missed. Traci agrees to help, but only because she loves a good mystery.
After pulling up the video on Jack’s phone, Traci’s stumped until something suddenly jumps out at her. She pushes Jack to look at Dina’s necklace – an antique with a huge emerald.
Traci looked at hundreds of photos when they were doing their Abbott family history book, and Dina wasn’t wearing that necklace in any of them.
Traci would really like to know what happened to the necklace and wonders if it was an heirloom. Jack thinks the necklace was probably sold, but Traci feels like there’s something familiar about it – and she’s going to find out what it is.
In Phyllis’ suite, she mocks how Jack though Dina was sending some message about the grand power of love. Nick Newman (Joshua Morrows) thinks the idea’s beautiful and suggests Phyllis is being cynical.
“It’s the real world! Sue me!” Phyllis says with a shrug. They debate their views on romance before deciding that they don’t have to worry about the Abbotts’ love lives.
However, Phyllis insists Nick doesn’t get to call her cynical and then act like everything’s normal. Phyllis thinks she’s realistic rather than cynical. She’s willing to tolerate Nick’s perspective on romance. Phyllis contends that she’s not dead instead.
It’s just that the world isn’t some romantic comedy and she can’t spew her feelings all the time.
Nick has seen Phyllis’ softer side, even though she tries to hide it. Since Nick wears his heart on his sleeve, Phyllis wonders if they’re going to have a problem. Nick assures Phyllis they balance each other out. Phyllis does believe in the magical moments of love, but it never seems to last.
Nick promises they won’t hurt each other again, but he admits he can’t make Phyllis believe it. Phyllis will have to do that on her own and put her trust in them. After Phyllis gets choked up, Nick and Phyllis reaffirm their love for each other.
Meanwhile, Elena Dawson (Brytni Sarpy) finds out Amanda Sinclair’s (Mishael Morgan) DNA results are in and asks Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) how worried she should be.
After Elena gets twin confirmation, she acknowledges that she shouldn’t be surprised and starts freaking out. Elena’s more worried for Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) than Amanda.
Elena’s further upset to learn Amanda made a beeline for Devon as soon as she got the results. Nate thinks it’s only natural since Amanda can’t connect with her sister. “Oh, but she can connect to her sister’s husband?!” Elena asks. She gets up to leave, but Nate pushes Elena to give Amanda and Devon some time.
Elena hopes this doesn’t lead to another setback for Devon. She urges Nate to put himself in Devon’s shoes. What if the spitting image of Nate’s fiancée came through the door as if she’d come back to life?
Nate would have questions, but he wouldn’t see her as an answer to his prayers. She wouldn’t have the same heart and soul as Carolyn.
Nate praises Elena’s great qualities and insists Devon had no choice but to love her. Elena feels a bit better and offers her gratitude. She hopes Amanda knows what she’s got in Nate.
At Devon’s place, he processes the news that Amanda is Hilary Curtis Hamilton’s (Mishael Morgan) twin sister and asks how she feels. Amanda suggests that in some ways she’s still alone and other ways she isn’t. Amanda can’t stop thinking about what her life would’ve been like if she’d grown up with Hilary.
Devon and Amanda joke about how he would’ve had to get her approval to be with her sister, but Devon thinks he would’ve been able to win Amanda over. “Probably,” Amanda says with a sweet smile.
Amanda knows her loss doesn’t compare to Devon’s, but it does feel like a “cruel joke” to learn she has a sister and lose her in the same moment.
Devon wonders if Amanda knows anything else about why the twins were separated and why Hilary was raised apart from her. Amanda has no clue and has a lot of the same questions. She wants to know what Hilary was like and asks Devon to describe his life with her.
Amanda can almost picture holidays and other family occasions there. She feels like if things had been different, she’d have been there, too. “But you weren’t here,” Devon insists. Amanda admits the reality is she doesn’t know the first thing about Hilary except for things she’s read and stories she’s heard.
However, Amanda’s there because she wants Devon to tell her everything about her sister. Devon isn’t sure he can tell Amanda what she wants to hear. Amanda isn’t asking Devon to relive his marriage or the tragedy.
She just wants to know what Hilary was like and what they had in common. Devon notes that persistence was something since Hilary couldn’t take no for an answer either.
Amanda isn’t trying to pressure Devon, but she’s curious and Devon’s the only person who can give her this info. Devon doesn’t know where to begin, but Amanda thinks they can start with something simple.
Amanda asks if they would’ve gotten along. Devon insists he REALLY can’t do this. He can’t bring Hilary to life like Amanda wants – and if his wound is reopened, he’s not sure he can close it.
Devon can’t be the one that Amanda turns to. “Then who?” Amanda asks on Wednesday’s Y&R episode. Amanda wonders if there’s someone she can talk to and reflects on all the big reactions people have had to her face in town.
People either loved Hilary or hated her, but Devon corrects that the people who hated Hilary didn’t really know her.
Devon talks about how Hilary had a persona she put on for the camera, but she had a big heart deep down. Hilary was also the most passionate person Devon’s ever known. Hilary would grab life and never let go.
Devon feels lucky that he was one of things Hilary grabbed onto – and he never let go either because he loved Hilary more than anything on earth. Elena walks in and looks disheartened over the statement.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Elena and Devon’s issues should get worse in the coming weeks, so stay tuned to Y&R. CDL’s the place to be for shocking Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news, so stop by again soon.
