The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers update for Friday, January 29, teases that Abby Newman-Abbott-Chancellor (Melissa Ordway) and Chance Chancellor (Donny Boaz) are surprised when Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) stops by.
Mariah admits she isn’t there to say yes or no to their surrogacy, but she would like more information.
Abby suggests the first step would be going to a doctor for a complete workup to see if Mariah can carry a child. Then, they’d look at medical records and begin more talk about the process. Mariah worries about her job, but Abby promises they can work around her schedule.
After Chance steps out to get tea, Mariah admits her biggest concern would be if she agrees and it doesn’t work. Abby understands that, but not trying to achieve her baby dream isn’t an option – that’s what would really break her heart.
Mariah doesn’t want to be insensitive, but she wonders why Chance and Abby are even trying to have a baby right now. Abby and Chance just got married, so Mariah implies that they should be enjoying newlywed life.
Abby gets that they’ve done things a little differently than most people, but this family plan is something they’ve been working on since they were dating.
After Abby says she’d love for Mariah to help make their dream a reality, she notes that the roads are a mess and offers a guest room. While Abby’s off finding Mariah some pajamas, Mariah calls Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) and updates her on how she’s staying over at the Chancellor mansion.
Tessa is stuck at Crimson Lights, so she’ll be staying with Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) for the night.
Talk turns to Mariah’s surrogacy conversation with Chance and Abby. She can tell how much Abby and Chance want to have a baby and knows they’d be great parents. Tessa assures Mariah that even if she goes through with the doctor’s appointment, she has the option to change her mind.
Mariah frets about the equivalent of swallowing an exercise ball. There’ll be stretch marks and a million other things she doesn’t know about, but Tessa says Mariah would be beautiful. She assures Mariah she’ll still love her, including the exercise ball. Tessa vows to support Mariah on this if it’s what she wants to do.
After Mariah hangs up and Abby returns, Mariah admits Tessa is on board – and so is Mariah. Chance is there to hear the big news as well. “So, go ahead. Make the doctor’s appointment because I want to do this for you guys. I want to help you have a baby,” Mariah says. Abby and Chance couldn’t be happier.
At Devon Hamilton’s (Bryton James) penthouse, Elena Dawson (Brytni Sarpy) disconnects from a call and says all the tow trucks are in use. Devon’s sorry for making Elena uncomfortable earlier, but it’d be a lot easier to be friends if she’d answer his question.
Devon wants to know if Elena’s willing to level with him about when she first had feelings for Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic).
Devon needs to make more sense of why he didn’t see the signs. He can’t find the moment when things changed. Elena finally says that if Devon wants to know what went wrong, then he has to be honest, too.
Devon was consumed with helping Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan) and even admitted to Elena how liberating it was to revisit everything that happened with Hilary Curtis Hamilton (Mishael Morgan).
Elena feels there was something going on or else Devon wouldn’t have hidden it. Elena insists Devon knew she felt insecure. Devon said she wouldn’t see Amanda anymore, but then went behind Elena’s back and did it anyway.
Elena insists she didn’t imagine Devon and Amanda’s bond – just like she isn’t imagining it now.
Elena felt like she was competing with the love of Devon’s life and her twin. Although Elena owns what she did, that night with Nate was about feeling needed and wanted.
Devon hadn’t made Elena feel that way in a long time. Devon admits this changes things and acknowledges that he should’ve listened to Elena’s concerns instead of dismissing them.
Devon can’t deny that sharing those stories with Amanda didn’t bring back some of what he had with Hilary. The resemblance made the experience more intense. Devon feels he should’ve cherished Elena – the amazing, beautiful and caring woman he had right in front of him.
Elena doesn’t blame Devon and notes that the woman he loved with all his heart was resurrected in front of him. Devon suggests he had new love and let it slip away. He touches Elena’s face tenderly, which leads to a kiss. After pausing briefly, they start kissing again and fall back on the couch as passion erupts.
At the Abbott mansion, Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) is sorry for imposing, but Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) is glad to have the company. After they discuss the dinner they just had, Sally heads out and sees that her car’s covered in ice crystals.
Jack would never let Sally go in this weather anyway and insists she can stay in a guest room for the night. They relax with drinks by the fire and start talking about their pasts.
Jack wonders how Sally got into fashion, so Sally suggests it wasn’t because of family ties. Her parents were carnival workers who abandoned Sally and Coco Spectra, so Grams took over.
Being abandoned left a hole in Sally’s heart, but she learned to fight and scrap for everything she had, Sally eventually followed in her great-aunt and namesake’s footsteps.
A lot of people didn’t think Sally belonged in the fashion world. “But you proved them wrong,” Jack says. He sees more success in Sally’s future.
On Friday’s Young and the Restless episode, Sally says now it’s Jack’s turn to tell his life story and assures him she’s got all night. Jack admits he was 15 when his mother left, so he had a mostly stable home for his childhood.
Jack feels like that gave him certain privileges that Sally and even Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) didn’t have.
Jack talks about admiring Kyle’s strength mixed with kindness, though Kyle’s had some lapses in judgment along the way. Sally can’t imagine them being anywhere close to hers, but Jack says don’t be so sure.
Jack intrigues Sally by mentioning Kyle’s pretty wild days in New York with Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson), but he’s glad Kyle has put those days behind him.
Jack apologizes for boring Sally, but she promises that’s far from the case. However, Sally decides to retire for the night and gets pointed in the direction of her prepared room.
Jack tells Sally to sleep well and have sweet dreams. Sally lags behind to watch him stoke the fire – he looks deep in thought after she walks away.
At Jabot, Summer Newman (Hunter King) beats Kyle at gin and instructs him to get all her favorites from the vending machines without using his hands since that’s the prize they agreed upon.
Kyle suggests the quiet game next. he says the first person who makes a noise loses as he starts taking off his shirt seductively.
After plenty of flirty fun and wine, Sally’s name comes up. Kyle wonders if what he said got through to Summer. He still isn’t so sure holding Sally’s past over her head is a good idea, but Sally feels it’s the best way to keep Sally in line.
Summer notes that Sally’s chances of taking her job are about the same as the chances of Sally taking her man. “As in zero,” Kyle insists.
Summer later suggests there’s an upside to having everyone know all the stupid stuff you’ve done. “That way no one can try to blackmail you, right?” Summer says. “Right,” Kyle replies with his back turned. He looks guilty about a secret he’s keeping, but he doesn’t admit anything to Summer.
At Victoria Newman’s (Amelia Heinle) place on Friday’s Y&R episode, Victoria is glad Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) stayed. They talk about the kids’ report cards before Victoria offers her gratitude to Billy.
Victoria thanks Billy for still showing up even though their lives went in different directions. Sometimes Victoria wonders how they got to this place.
Billy confesses that he’s put Victoria through a lot, but she says she’s done some things wrong, too. Nevertheless, Billy takes most of the blame and admits to the many times he hurt Victoria and put her in danger. “Don’t give me a free pass for being a jackass,” Billy insists.
Nevertheless, Victoria has thought about this a lot and feels she brought her own baggage to the table. She’s a Newman and had unreasonable expectations. Victoria wonders who could blame Billy for wanting to escape.
Billy doesn’t see it that way and it sorry for what he put Victoria through. He reflects on Victoria saving him that time she found him drunk and freezing on New Year’s Eve.
Billy feels like Victoria saved him again by convincing him to stop pretending he had his life together. Victoria is the reason Billy started to “grow the hell up” and become the man he was pretending to be.
Billy is still a work in progress, but he likes who he is now. He praises Victoria has a CEO and a mom before he wonders when Victoria will find a man who actually deserves her.
Victoria is sure she’ll start dating again eventually, but she’s happily too busy right now. She wonders how serious Billy and Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) are, so Billy wonders how casual you can really be at his age.
Victoria gleans that Billy and Lily are pretty serious then. Billy knows Victoria may be uneasy about Lily spending time with the kids, but he insists they’re taking things slow.
There’s something else Victoria’s been wondering, but there’s a noise that leads Billy to go check on the kids and the moment passes. Billy is going to crash in the guest room, but they talk about it being a really good day for the kids.
Billy knows these times won’t last forever, so he’ll take them when he can get them. Once Billy walks off, Victoria looks like she’s reflecting on all the bonding they just did.
