The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers recap for Thursday, April 29, reveals that Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) will arrive at Crimson Lights and learn Faith Newman (Reylynn Caster) just passed out.
Faith will be drinking water in a chair when Nick summons nearby Elena Dawson (Brytni Sarpy) to see what the problem might be.
After Elena finds out Faith has a fever, she’ll think that’s troubling in combination with this collapse. Sharon Rosales (Sharon Case) will worry it might be related to the thallium that was found in the house, but Elena won’t want to rely on guesswork. She’ll think they need to get Faith to the hospital.
At The Grand Phoenix on Thursday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, Tara Locke (Elizabeth Leiner) will catch Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) listening to her phone call with Harrison Locke.
Kyle will feel like he may never see Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) again and will think it’s best to avoid Tara, too.
Since this might be the end, Kyle will want to know something about Harrison that he can hold onto. Tara will admit Harrison’s favorite song is Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and that he botches the lyrics by singing “bup, bup, bup the world so high.”
Kyle will find that pretty cute and will thank Tara for giving him that info.
At Jabot on Thursday’s Young and the Restless episode, Summer Newman (Hunter King) will think it’s rather melodramatic of Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) to think she’s in love with Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) after like three dates.
Sally will insist it’s true – and she’ll rant about Summer and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) costing her Jack.
Summer will think Sally only has herself to blame, but Sally will just want Summer to remember how lucky she is for coming out of this unscathed. Jack will listen before dashing away from the door and will play dumb when Sally approaches him.
It’ll take some convincing, but Sally will get Jack to agree to have coffee with her at Crimson Lights later.
Afterward, Summer will scold Jack for accepting the offer. She’ll think Jack is too kindhearted for his own good, so Jack will guess that maybe he is. Once Kyle makes it to the office, he’ll look at the contract Ashland had sent over.
It’ll be the original except sweetened a bit as far as Kyle can tell. Kyle won’t see any traps or timebombs, but he’ll plan to let their legal team go over it just in case.
Jack will insist he’s proud of Kyle for his willingness to walk away from Jabot during the crisis. He’ll think Kyle will understand once he has a son of his own. When Kyle meets up with Summer later, she’ll be surprised by his optimism that everything is going to work out.
However, Kyle will argue that if Tara thought Ashland was playing them, then she’d say so. Kyle will feel like they should accept this good news and stop looking for trouble.
Summer will think it’s time to announce their engagement. She’ll want to spread the word and will warn Kyle that she’s thinking big for their wedding – something unforgettable. Kyle wouldn’t have it any other way!
Back with Sally, she’ll run into Tara at the coffeehouse and make polite small talk about Ashland. After Jack’s text lets Sally know he’ll be there in a few minutes, she’ll get pushy with Tara.
Sally will want Tara to distract Ashland so that he’ll stop messing with her friends. Things will get rather heated as Sally rants about the Jabot attacks and how wrong it is to go after innocent people, especially a decent man like Jack.
“Why should he be responsible because his son can’t keep it zipped?” Sally will ask.
Tara will suggest Sally doesn’t even work for Jabot and will know there must be something in it for her. She’ll realize Sally must be interested in Jack – and Sally will seemingly see Jack enter out of the corner of her eye.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Sally will make a big speech about how she’s worried about innocent people getting hurt due to Ashland’s games. She’ll praise Jack for his integrity and argue that he’s nothing like Tara’s husband.
Sally will insist that Jack will do whatever he needs to do to protect his family and employees.
Once Jack walks over, he’ll have some kind words for Ashland about his improving health and realignment of priorities. Tara will promise to pass the message along before heading out. Sally will wonder how much Jack heard of her speech, so he’ll note that he heard enough.
Sally will claim she’s a bit embarrassed, but she won’t really mind since she wanted to tell Jack all that anyway. She’ll argue that she’s not perfect, but she’s someone with heart.
Sally will make it clear that she has deep feelings for Jack – deeper than he could ever know. Sally will assure Jack that those feelings aren’t going away as he looks bewildered.
At Society, Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) will catch Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) leaving a voicemail for Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) and snark about it before joining Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) in the kitchen.
Lola will think Rey’s really upset about Sharon, so he’ll admit Adam called while they were trying to talk. Rey will rant about how Adam is on the run and still has an effect on Sharon.
Back with Victor, he’ll find out Adam’s contacts in Vegas haven’t heard anything. Victor will wonder about Adam’s friend in New York. He’ll warn his minion to find Adam or he’ll get someone else to do it.
Rey will overhear again, so he’ll suppose that was either a worried father trying to locate his son or a really good fake for Rey’s benefit.
Victor will suggest he doesn’t do anything for Rey’s benefit. Although Rey will admit they’re looking at all options, he’ll point out that Adam ran for the hills.
Rey won’t think that’s what an innocent man would do, but Victor will argue that Adam only ran because Rey isn’t motivated by justice.
After Victor gets a phone call about Faith being in the hospital, Rey will wonder what’s wrong. Victor will tell Rey it’s none of his business, so Rey will be upset over being left in the dark. After Rey updates Lola, she’ll push Rey to just go be there for Faith and Sharon anyway.
Moses Winters (Jacob Aaron Gaines) will show up late for his meeting with Faith and text to find out where she is. Nikki will eventually text back to explain that Faith collapsed. Once Moses learns Faith is having tests done at the hospital, he’ll rush out to join her there.
In the hospital waiting area, Nick will start blaming Adam since this could be related to the poison. Sharon will snap that Nick isn’t a doctor and won’t think he’s helping by dragging Adam into this, especially since Sharon doesn’t even believe Adam poisoned Rey.
Nick will argue that Adam was the reason for the bullying, which led to Faith’s drinking. He’ll feel like Adam’s the reason they’re at the hospital no matter what. Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) will break up Sharon and Nick’s fight, so they’ll all agree to focus on Faith and wait for real answers.
Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) will deliver those difficult answers later. He’ll explain that Faith has a post-infectious AIN – or acute interstitial nephritis. Faith’s immune system has its wires crossed, so it’s attacking her kidneys.
Nate will explain that Faith is sick because her kidneys are failing and will talk about a specialist confirming the diagnosis through a renal biopsy soon.
Faith will worry in her hospital bed, but Nikki will offer reassurance. As for Moses, he’ll show up and learn it’s not a good time for visitors. Moses will want to hang around the hospital anyway and will clock in so he can get some volunteer hours.
Once Sharon and Nick come in Faith’s room, they’ll explain the infection situation and how her body’s fighting too hard. Nick and Sharon will stay upbeat as they talk about waiting on a treatment plan.
Next, Nate will sit down with Nick alone to talk about what the nephrologist said. They’re going to attack the infection first and try steroids. Unfortunately, Y&R spoilers say the kidney damage may be irreversible.
Nate will talk about dialysis as an option, but Nick will hate the idea of Faith giving up 12 hours per week – potentially for the rest of her life.
Nate will note that another option is a kidney transplant, but he’ll insist the waitlist is five to 10 years. The alternative is a living donor who’s a match and willing to give up one kidney.
Nate will add that it’s best if it’s a close relative – one with a compatible blood type to minimize the chance of infection.
Nate will warn Nick not to wait on making a decision since Faith’s blood type is rare. He’ll insist that finding a donor with that type could be challenging. Nick will be deeply emotional as he tries to process everything Nate’s been revealing.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Faith’s crisis will bring some stressful moments, so stay tuned for more Newman family drama. CDL will have lots of other great Young and the Restless spoilers, updates and news, so check back often.
