The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers update for Tuesday, February 2, reveals that Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) is confused by Victoria Newman’s (Amelia Heinle) change of heart.
At Chancellor Communications, Billy jokes about his strategy for the game he’s going to play later with the kids. Victoria admits she doesn’t want Billy to come by after all and asks him not to as a favor to her.
Billy is confused and doesn’t get why he can’t join Victoria and the kids like they agreed. However, Victoria argues that keeping their usual schedule is important.
It’d be a mistake for Johnny Abbott (Holden and Ryan Hare) and Katie Abbott (Sienna Mercuri) to get used to it being the four of them.
Billy keeps reminding Victoria that she had fun as well, but she doesn’t want Billy getting any more comfortable in their lives. That confuses Billy, too. He argues that good co-parenting is supposed to make kids feel comfortable and insists they’re a family.
Victoria wants to set boundaries like they had before, but Billy wonders about the reason for this change of heart. Once Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) arrives, things immediately get awkward.
Victoria has said all she has to say to Billy, so she coldly welcomes Lily back and leaves.
Lily wonders what that was about, so Billy calls it the “co-parenting blues.” Since Lily closed the deal in New York, Billy praises her brilliance. By the elevator, Victoria pushes the button repeatedly and rolls her eyes as Billy says he missed “the hell out of” Lily.
At the cottage, Sharon Rosales (Sharon Case) and Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) talk about how they’re going to handle things with Faith Newman (Alyvia Alyn Lind).
Nick wants to bring Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) in on this. It’s best to keep it in the family as much as possible.
Sharon wonders if Nick’s saying just forget about therapy then. Nick argues that he didn’t say that. He just wants to get different perspectives from people Faith loves.
Nick doesn’t like the idea of Faith feeling interrogated by a stranger. Sharon feels like the important thing is to present a united front.
Once Faith appears on Tuesday’s Young and the Restless episode, Sharon shows her the vodka bottle cap and wants to talk about it. Faith plays dumb, but Sharon brings up that it was in the cushions of the couch.
Since Sharon keeps the place pretty clean, she doesn’t think it’s been there for long.
“Are you saying I put it there?” Faith wonders. Sharon points out that Faith was alone with Jordan (Madison Thompson) during the recent storm. She thinks it seems like they were drinking vodka. “What liquor store would sell it to me?” Faith asks.
Sharon notes that Faith still hasn’t flat-out denied it, so Faith finally does. “Fine, I was NOT drinking!” Faith insists.
Nick says they want the truth, but Faith says that IS the truth. She feels like she’s always waiting to get accused of something and doesn’t know how to prove there’s nothing to worry about.
Nick doesn’t want Faith to pretend she’s OK when she isn’t – and they know she isn’t.
Sharon argues that they want Faith to go to therapy, but Faith snaps that she won’t go and they can’t force her. She’s furious that they want her to share her deepest, darkest secrets with someone she doesn’t even know.
Once Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) arrives, Faith begs her grandma to talk some sense into them.
Nikki thinks it’d be good to have a moment alone with Faith, so she quizzes Faith privately once Sharon and Nick step out. Nikki wonders what’s so terrible about going to therapy. She notes that it’d get Faith’s parents to back off, but Faith still protests. “It’s so suffocating,” Faith insists.
Faith is sorry about what happened to Cassie Newman (Camryn Grimes), but it feels like she’ll never get out from under her shadow. Faith’s craving normalcy, but there’s nothing normal about going to therapy – at least according to Faith.
After Faith once again pleads for her grandma’s help, Nikki tells Sharon and Nick that maybe they all need time to cool off. Nikki proposes taking Faith to the stables or to see Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) at the main house.
Gloria Fisher-Bardwell (Judith Chapman) finds Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) at The Grand Phoenix. Since Gloria’s looking for a job, she pitches herself to be the coordinator and concierge for The Escape Club. Gloria reveals that Lauren Baldwin (Tracey E. Bregman) told her about it.
Phyllis grumbles about Lauren breaking the rules by blabbing, but Gloria focuses on the task at hand. She feels Phyllis would be crazy not to hire her. “Well, then call me crazy,” Phyllis quips. Since Phyllis handles The Escape Club herself, she suggests Newman Enterprises as an alternative for Gloria.
Gloria never even considered it, so Phyllis guesses you can’t blackmail and get a job there at the same time. After Gloria realizes Phyllis has been talking to Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart), she insists Phyllis has it all wrong.
Phyllis won’t say anything, but she notes that it’s good leverage if Gloria wants to hit Victoria up for a job. Gloria sees herself at the hotel instead, but Phyllis maintains there’s nothing available.
At Society, Mariah tells Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) about her doctor’s appointment going well. Since Mariah seems like a great candidate, Tessa gushes over what a beautiful surrogate Mariah will be.
Mariah says there are going to be so many firsts that she doesn’t even know about, but they’ll be Abby Newman-Abbott-Chancellor (Melissa Ordway) and Chance Chancellor’s (Donny Boaz) firsts.
Mariah wonders if that bothers Tessa, but Tessa points out that Mariah isn’t the only one who’s capable of getting pregnant in this relationship – if they ever decide to go down that road. “Wait, are we actually talking about having a baby someday?” Mariah asks.
Tessa smiles and reels over talking about baby or even babies of their own. Mariah thinks it’s kind of fun to imagine. Since Tessa can’t wait to fight over names, they throw out some silly options to mess with each other.
Abby calls Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) outside Society and says everything’s OK, but then admits it’s not really. She adds that no one’s injured, but she needs her mom to call her back because everything has changed.
As Abby enters Society, she stops and listens to Mariah and Tessa’s conversation. Mariah mentions how Tessa brought up getting married a while ago. They discuss how they tabled the discussion until after Sharon was better.
Tessa assures Mariah she’s fine with waiting, but Mariah suggests maybe they’re in a place where they don’t have to wait. They could have conversations about marriage and a family.
Tessa acknowledges that’d mean some “serious adulting.” They agree they don’t have to make any decisions right away. “But we can start,” Mariah says. “We can definitely start,” Tessa replies sweetly. Abby finally decides to walk over and sighs when Mariah invites her to come celebrate.
Lauren heads to Crimson Lights, where Gloria once again begs for a job at Fenmore’s. She’s desperate since she got fired in LA and has major debts from her time out there. Gloria whines that she needs to dig herself out of a hole, but nobody’s willing to give her a chance.
Lauren argues that Gloria burned a lot of bridges in Genoa City, but Gloria says she’s changed. She guilt-trips Lauren with the “we’re family” angle, so Lauren finally admits she’s thinking of promoting Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope).
That’d leave the executive assistant position open, so Gloria gets choked up as she promises to focus only on serving Lauren’s needs. Gloria insists she just needs a chance to get back on track and score a paycheck, so Lauren agrees to think about it.
Back at Sharon’s place, she continues to bicker with Nick about therapy and Faith. Nick feels like Sharon was too confrontational and jumped right in Faith’s face. “Of course I did!” Sharon snaps. Nick argues that they still don’t know if Faith was the one who left the bottle cap, but Sharon insists she knows.
Nick reminds Sharon that they agreed to present a united front. All the fighting isn’t going to help. Sharon argues that they’re not fighting; they’re just having a “spirited discussion.”
Sharon has to dash off to a staff meeting, but Nick makes her repeat that they’re in this together before she goes.
Later, Nikki returns alone and lets Nick know Victor’s playing chess with Faith. She relays that Faith feels ganged up on and pressured by her parents. Nikki’s happy to help, but she’s not a professional – and a professional is Faith’s best chance of getting the help she needs.
At the coffeehouse, Jordan texts Faith to tell her she’s grabbing a green tea there. Faith texts back about losing a chess match on purpose and adds that she’s on her way.
Suddenly, Sharon appears and calls out Jordan’s name. Jordan tries to put on her typical nice act, but Sharon remains stern and says Faith’s going to have a lot going on.
Sharon feels like this is a good time for Jordan to back off and give Faith some space. “You understand?” Sharon asks. Jordan looks taken aback and irritated as she folds her arms.
Jordan argues that Faith is like a sister to her and that if something’s going on, maybe she can help. Sharon maintains that the best thing Jordan can do is stay away right now.
Faith walks in on Tuesday’s Y&R episode and overhears, so she wonders if Sharon is seriously doing this behind her back. Jordan says she’s out of there and hastily exits.
Faith wonders how Sharon could do that since Jordan was her only friend. Sharon insists she has to look out for Faith’s best interests.
“OK, so now I’m not allowed to have friends anymore? I’m just supposed to be lonely for the rest of my life?” Faith asks. Sharon knows it must seem harsh, but Faith yells to just leave her alone and rushes out the door.
Once Victoria heads home, Johnny is excited about Billy coming over to finish their game. Victoria explains that Billy isn’t coming, but Johnny points out that they both promised.
Victoria fires back that it’s not happening and warns that Johnny should stop asking! She quickly apologizes and assures Johnny that she’s not mad.
Victoria promises that both Mommy and Daddy love Johnny. Afterward, Victoria picks up stuff around the living room and looks thoughtful over the football since Billy was planning to play touch football with the kids.
Billy ends up at The Grand Phoenix’s bar with Lily, who tells a wild story from her last night in New York with Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan) – which involves them being confused for backup dancers.
Billy admits things went fine with Victoria and the kids until it all went sideways today. He finds Victoria’s behavior to be mystifying, but he eventually focuses on Lily and the fun they could have two floors up.
At Society again, Abby’s already told Mariah and Tessa about Chance’s low sperm count and motility issues. It could be a temporary thing, but they don’t know if or when Chance might be able to be a father.
Any decision they might make feels rushed, but Tessa wonders how Abby would feel if Chance did end up using a donor.
Abby admits she told Chance she wanted their babies any way they come to them, but she’s sad since she had this picture in her mind of their kids. If Abby can’t carry and he can’t donate, is this really the right choice?
Mariah assures Abby that she’s not going anywhere and offers support along with Tessa, but Mariah gets choked up after Abby leaves. “How do you come back from that?” Mariah wonders about Abby’s latest blow.
At the Chancellor mansion, Abby looks around and sees no sign of Chance. She takes a deep breath and heads upstairs looking glum.
