The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Summer Newman-Abbott (Allison Lanier) may have to rethink her perspective. Daniel Romalotti Jr. (Michael Graziadei) has been trying to help Summer see the importance of setting Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters) free, but Summer doesn’t think it’s fair for it to happen at Phyllis Summers’ (Michelle Stafford) expense.
Although Phyllis framed Diane for a murder she didn’t commit, Summer certainly doesn’t view her mother-in-law as an innocent woman.
As far as Summer’s concerned, Diane started this whole mess by invading Genoa City and trying to take over Phyllis’ life.
That’s not really how things went down, but Summer still sees the situation that way. However, there could be a big shift in this storyline once Phyllis ultimately gets arrested.
Y&R could be creating a scenario where Phyllis’ victim might end up being the one person who can save her.
During the week of May 29-June 2, Phyllis will do some research online and try to find something in Jeremy Stark’s (James Hyde) trail that proves she was right to defend herself.
Of course, we can think of someone who could bolster Phyllis’ case in that department – and that’s Diane!
After all, Jeremy blackmailed Diane and manipulated her into being his money-laundering mule back when they lived in Los Angeles. Diane has seen Jeremy’s sinister side and knows what it’s like to get in over your head with this guy.
Unfortunately, Diane hates Phyllis more than ever, which is understandable considering Phyllis just tried to have her wrongfully convicted of murder.
Although Diane wants Phyllis to pay the price for her actions, what happens if Summer changes her tune and delivers a desperate plea on Phyllis’ behalf?
It could go a long way in helping Phyllis’ defense if Diane testifies about how dangerous Stark was and how manipulative he could be.
Diane could open up about what a menace Jeremy was and perhaps even point to times when she feared for her own life around him.
Stark was bad news, so Diane could go on the record with her own horror stories.
As for why Diane might try to help Phyllis in the end, the answer is simple: to save Kyle Abbott’s (Michael Mealor) marriage.
Diane already feels guilty about the toll this is taking on Kyle and Summer’s relationship, but things will get even worse when Kyle finds out all the secrets Summer’s been keeping.
Nevertheless, Kyle loves Summer and may not want to see her suffer the pain of losing her own mother to prison.
If Summer begs for Diane’s help and Kyle backs her up, how can Diane really turn them down?
That doesn’t mean Diane can make all the charges go away, but she could at least do her part to offer some surprising assistance.
It might be a nice start when it comes to dialing down Diane and Phyllis’ horrible feud.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Diane might have to decide between revenge and doing what’s best for Kyle’s marriage, so stick with us for updates on the choice she’s potentially facing.
