Soon after, Christine Williams (Lauralee Bell) will show up at Crimson Lights to give Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) and Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) advice ahead of their adoption meeting.

Once Danny flashes back to the highs and lows of his romance with Christine, she’ll join him on the patio again.
Christine will get the wrong idea about Phyllis Summers’ (Michelle Stafford) recent social media post, so Danny will act like they’re not that close and are just teammates as well as co-parents.

Christine won’t blame Danny and will think it’s good that they both found happiness – even if it wasn’t with each other.

Victoria will eventually confide a bit over coffee and mention that there are some extremely complicated factors going on with Johnny Abbott (Paxton Mishkind).

At Chelsea Lawson’s (Melissa Claire Egan) apartment, she’ll sense that something’s wrong when Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) arrives and asks for news on Connor Newman’s (Judah Mackey) recent project.
Billy will downplay his personal problems, but Chelsea will keep at it until he admits Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) thinks they might be done.

After Billy takes all the blame, Chelsea will wonder if he’s really just going to give up.
Billy will act like Lily was trying to let him down gently, but Chelsea will push him to find Lily and lay out all the reasons why they should stay together.

Billy will decide Chelsea’s right, so he’ll text Lily on Tuesday’s Y&R episode and ask if they can meet.
At Society, Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) will spot Lily as she walks in, so she’ll join him at table and discuss how the holidays went.
After Nick apologizes on behalf of Newman for the whole situation with Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic), Lily will insist she knows he had no part in Nate’s scheme with Victoria.
Lily will reflect on getting hurt and having to roll with it, so Nick will wonder if they’re talking about Nate or Billy now.
Although Nick will be willing to listen, Lily will decline to open up.
Before Nick leaves, he’ll tell Lily that he’s impressed with what she’s done at Chancellor-Winters.
Nick will be proud of Lily for leading with integrity and dignity, so she’ll be grateful for the kind words.

Once Billy says he’ll do whatever it takes, he’ll offer to make a couples therapy appointment today and do anything else Lily needs him to do.
Billy will think they’ve been through too much to stop trying now, so Lily will agree that they owe it to themselves to keep trying.
As Lily takes Billy’s hands in her own, she’ll offer a sad smile.
Back at Chelsea’s apartment, she’ll get updates from Connor via text.
Connor will hope they can have pizza with Johnny this week, so Chelsea will contemplate sending Billy a message before texting Victoria instead.
