The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers for the next two weeks, December 27 to January 7, tease that Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) will play a dangerous game while Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) reaches her breaking point with Billy Abbott’s (Jason Thompson) latest scheme. Elena Dawson (Brytni Sarpy) and Imani Benedict (Leigh-Ann Rose) will also face off, so let’s dive in and discuss all the drama.
During the week of December 27-31, Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) will give Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) a nudge toward officially requesting visitation with Dominic Newman-Abbott-Chancellor (River and Rainn Ware).
Devon will take the advice, so he’ll push Abby Newman-Abbott-Chancellor (Melissa Ordway) and Chance Chancellor (Conner Floyd) to let him keep Dominic overnight sometimes. He’ll want to work out a new agreement in writing, but Abby will be wary of taking this step.
Chance won’t be as hard to convince, but this will be a real issue for Abby to mull over.
In the meantime, Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) will seek Tessa Porter’s (Cait Fairbanks) friendship while Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan) makes a contract demand.
Chelsea will make it clear to Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) that she absolutely must be Sally’s boss. She won’t want Sally thinking she can bully her and get her way at the fashion platform.
Next, Victoria Newman-Locke (Amelia Heinle) will uncover the truth. When a confrontation with Billy leads to Victoria sipping his drink at the bar, she’ll discover he’s been downing glasses of apple juice.
Victoria will call Billy out on faking his drunken spectacles and will assume he’s been doing the same thing by pretending to gamble at his old dive bar.
Although Victoria will be willing to hide the truth from Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), she’ll want to make this a mutually beneficial deal.
Once Victoria lays out her terms, Billy and Lily will have no choice but to reach an agreement with her.
Ashland will also spread the news about his condition and some new test results. It sounds like Ashland will once again have positive updates and may be well on his way to remission.
Of course, there are some new hints for 2022 about Ashland potentially faking his illness the whole time, so that’s something to keep in mind! Regardless, Ashland and Victoria should have something to celebrate for now.
Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) and Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) will also find a new place thanks to Elena’s decision to move in with Nate.
Elena will move out of the apartment above Crimson Lights, so Mariah and Tessa will accept Sharon Rosales’ (Sharon Case) offer to make it their home.
Later, Tessa and Mariah will open up to Sharon about their recent baby decision. Sharon may worry that Mariah has pressured Tessa into this, but Tessa will insist she’s ready to start a family with Mariah and will look forward to the next steps.
While Chloe and Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) settle on a New Year’s resolution, Sally will hope to score some alone time with Adam for New Year’s Eve. Whether Sally succeeds or not, Chelsea will keep up her own efforts to win over Adam.
We’ll see Chelsea make a daring NYE confession, so this could lead to a stolen kiss or at least an intense moment at the penthouse.
Y&R has a preemption coming up on Friday, December 31, but the show will resume new episodes during the week of January 3-7.
That’s when Lily will be pushed to her limit with Billy. It sounds like Lily may want Billy to bail on his plan, especially if she sees signs that it might backfire spectacularly.
Billy will dig his heels in and insist on moving forward with his trap, so Lily’s patience will wear thin.
Other Young and the Restless spoilers say Ashland will stand his ground, so we’ll see who he goes up against and why.
Ashland’s priority will remain protecting Victoria and their marriage, but that could be easier said than done since he’s got a huge secret that’ll explode in the new year.
Over with Elena, she’ll have a run-in with Imani and set her straight on something.
If Elena catches Imani flirting with Nate again, she may shut it down and urge Imani to find someone single!
Elena will want Imani to face reality, but Imani just might resolve to create a new one where Nate is with her instead.
While Imani and Elena have a showdown, Sally and Chelsea’s war will rage on.
We’ll see Chelsea make a stunning discovery, so that could easily involve catching Adam and Sally in a rather compromising situation.
Y&R spoilers say some exciting twists and turns are coming up over the next two weeks.
