The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers recap for Wednesday, May 26, reveals that Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) will threaten to get Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) fired while Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) wants Summer Newman’s (Hunter King) wedding postponed. Here’s what to expect on Wednesday’s Y&R episode.
At the Abbott mansion, Nick will be irate and downright rude as he asks Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) questions about all the paternity drama going on with Kyle.
When Tara Locke (Elizabeth Leiner), she’ll start to introduce herself before Nick cuts her off and insists he already knows who she is.
There’ll be tension as Tara expresses how sorry she is for how this is affecting Summer, but Nick will think things are going to get worse before they get better.
After Tara goes to check on Harrison, Nick will voice his disapproval over Jack letting Tara and Harrison hide out there.
Nick will get the emotional impact this kid could have on the Abbott family if the paternity test results prove Tara’s telling the truth. However, Nick will have to think about his own family. He’ll feel like Summer and Kyle need to postpone their wedding.
Jack will argue that Kyle and Summer need to figure this out on their own, but Nick will stand his ground on the idea of “Skyle” slowing things down.
Nick will think the Harrison situation needs to be resolved one way or another first. Nick will insist he hopes Jack and Kyle start to see things his way before he storms out.
When Tara reconvenes with Jack, she’ll once again thank him for all the help. Jack will feel like they have to stay one step ahead of Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi), but Tara will feel like Ashland is impossible to predict.
She’ll worry that Ashland could take Harrison away and destroy her relationship with her son forever.
Jack will wonder what Tara’s done to protect herself legally, so she’ll admit she hired a New York attorney to countersue when Ashland filed for temporary custody.
Tara filed her own custody claim, but she’ll insist that will only buy them a little bit of time. She’ll add that’s why they need the paternity test results ASAP.
Jack will warn that no matter how the results turn out, Ashland is that little boy’s father in the eyes of the law and pretty much everywhere else.
Those test results won’t guarantee an automatic place in Harrison’s life, but Tara will be grateful that Kyle’s willing to step up and try to fight.
Tara will guess Jack’s probably wondering how she could keep Harrison a secret from Kyle. She’ll talk about how keeping that secret got easier over time since Ashland is a wonderful father and his bond with Harrison is deep.
Jack will point out that bond isn’t going to work in Tara’s favor in the custody case.
Tara will note that if it hadn’t been for Theo, the truth probably never would’ve come out. Jack will suggest that Theo was only part of it and will explain that a woman named Sally made matters worse.
When Tara recognizes the name and reveals they’ve talked a few times, Jack will suggest that it wasn’t by accident that Tara and Sally met. He’ll add that Sally has been using her knowledge of Tara’s affair as leverage over Summer and Kyle for some time now.
Tara will insist Sally also told her where to find Kyle the night of the engagement party.
“Why am I not surprised by that?” Jack will wonder aloud. He’ll warn Tara that Sally can’t be trusted.
At Crimson Lights, Sally will flash back to Summer Newman slapping her before she saunters over to her rival. Sally will hope Summer’s not going to hit her again if she asks her a question, but Summer will point out that Sally got slapped for insulting her fiancé.
Summer will make no promises about future slaps, so Sally will think that sounds like a threat when she was just trying to ask how the engagement party went. Suddenly, Kyle will appear in the patio doorway and join the confrontation.
Summer will argue that Sally’s goal was to cause trouble and inflict as much damage as possible along with Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson). Sally will defend herself since Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez) was conceived long before she ever came to town.
Sally will argue that she wasn’t even sure Harrison was Kyle’s son, so she won’t think this is her fault.
Kyle will fire back that he intends to do everything he can to make sure Harrison isn’t adversely affected by the mess Sally helped create, but he’ll warn that he’ll never forgive her.
“If you think my father is going to get past this, think again. It’s not going to happen. I will make sure of it,” Kyle will insist.
Sally will try to shut down the blame game, but Kyle will suggest maybe Lauren Baldwin (Tracey E. Bregman) needs to hear about all this. “The damage you caused might be the only reason she needs to throw you out on your ass!” Kyle will shout.
“You wouldn’t really try and have me fired, would you?” Sally will ask in response. Kyle will suggest another option is for Sally to do this town a favor and get out of their lives.
Summer will think that’s a great idea, but Sally will advise against underestimating her.
Nevertheless, Summer will argue that Sally had her second chance and blew it. “You’re done here,” Summer will declare before leaving with Kyle.
In the park, Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) will go for a run and pause briefly to send Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) a selfie.
At the Chancellor mansion, Abby Newman-Abbott-Chancellor (Melissa Ordway) will tell Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) that she’s fighting her impulses when it comes to hovering over Mariah during her pregnancy.
After Abby and Devon discuss Neil Winters’ (Kristoff St. John) upcoming memorial tribute, Abby will wonder if Devon would be willing to shoot a candid for her video diary.
As Devon thinks about what he’s going to say, Abby will note that Mariah’s been a lot longer than she normally would be for a run.
Tessa will appear moments later and tell Abby to promise not to freak out. When Mariah enters, she’ll have a brace on her wrist and leave a panicked Abby wondering what happened.
Mariah will admit to taking a minor fall and suffering a sprain, but she’ll try to convince Abby it was no big deal.
Devon will encourage Mariah to take part in the video diary for Chance Chancellor (Donny Boaz), so Mariah will show off her baby bump and tell Chance to ignore the brace. Tessa, Devon and Abby will all shoot some fun videos for Chance as well.
At Society, Jack will bump into Ashland, who’ll ask how Jack would feel if someone in his family interfered with his son’s life – potentially putting him in jeopardy.
Ashland will suspect that Kyle knows where Harrison is and will warn that situations like this can get “real ugly, real fast.”
When Jack plays dumb, Ashland will insist that Jack has no clue what he’s dealing with when it comes to Tara. Jack will argue that whatever’s going on with Ashland and his wife is his problem, so Ashland will think Jack and his family should stay out of it.
However, Jack will rant about how Ashland didn’t stay out of his family’s business and will shut down Ashland’s attempts to deny targeting Jabot.
As Jack gets increasingly agitated, he’ll suggest that he was willing to let it go last time because he thought Ashland’s heart attack might’ve changed him.
Jack will make it clear that Ashland shouldn’t mistake compassion for weakness. He’ll warn that he’ll do whatever it takes to protect what’s his and will add that Ashland isn’t the only one capable of ruthlessness.
Just before Jack leaves, Ashland will suggest that’s the most intriguing thing he’s ever heard Jack say.
Back at the Abbott mansion, Kyle will check in with Tara and make sure Harrison is adjusting to life there. Tara will fill Kyle and Summer in on the drama with Nick earlier, but Summer will admit she knows this isn’t Tara’s fault.
Even so, Summer will seem uncomfortable as Kyle reassures Tara. He’ll talk about making it very clear to Ashland that Tara isn’t alone after they get paternity confirmation. After the technician arrives, Tara will take her in the other room to swab Harrison’s cheek.
That’ll give Kyle a chance to talk to Summer and acknowledge that she’s having a hard time with all this.
Summer will mention the connection between Tara and Kyle. She’ll insist it’s not that she’s jealous, but it’s still strange having Tara and Kyle’s son at the house.
Summer will assure Kyle that she knows he loves her, but she’ll want some time and space to deal with things in her own way. Once Summer is gone, Kyle will swab his own cheek and hand the sample over to the technician for DNA testing.
At the park, Nick will find Summer and listen as she confesses to being scared. Summer won’t be sure she’s ready to share Kyle since Tara is now part of the package.
When Nick asks if he can talk now, Summer will insist he can’t if he’s just going to tell her to postpone the wedding.
Nick will get that Summer and Kyle love each other, but he’ll think she has to prepare herself for the changes that are coming. Nick will feel like it’s going to be difficult getting through all this with her relationship intact.
Nick will suggest that Summer has to trust that beautiful heart of hers and rely on her parents if she needs them.
On the Crimson Lights patio, Sally will grumble to “Grams” aka Shirley Spectra (Patrika Darbo) over a video chat.
Shirley will give Sally a pep talk since she’ll feel confident Sally’s going to strike back against those who have worked against her. She’ll push Sally not to miss when she does.
Afterward, Sally will corner Ashland at Society and introduce herself. She’ll contend that Ashland will be very glad they met when she tells him how they can help each other.
