Theresa is still trying to find someone - anyone - who will help her stop Gwen from "killing" Ethan. She interrupts Alistair's seduction of one of his brainless maids to beg him for help, and she can't believe her luck when he calls the hospital to intercede. Turns out, though, that he told the administrator to make sure every part of Ethan's living will is carried out to the letter, and he just can't help rubbing his deceit in. As the show ends, he leaves her and us with the unmistakable dare-in-a-disguise of "Everyone wants to kill me but no one is strong enough to do it." I really don't think dangling that dare in Theresa's face is the right move, Al.

Y&R Recap Written By Glynis  **One Day Ahead

Phyllis hasn’t been cooperating but Jack hopes that Kevin will. “How have things been going with my family and you lately Kevin? I know that you have been having trouble getting along with my family and I can change all that for you if you want to take advantage of a great opportunity.” Kevin is listening now. Jack says that he wants Kevin to tell him and not Victor if he finds out what Phyllis did to the computer. Kevin knows that this sort of thing is illegal but is seduced by the idea of Jack bringing him into the bosom of the family and paving the way for him to get along better with John and Ashley. Jack tells him that if he doesn’t do this he will have an enemy for a stepbrother from that point on. “You are really twisting my arm here Jack.” He knows that. He tells Kevin that Phyllis mentioned, ‘binary shell code’ before. “Do you know what that is?" Kevin will find out. Later when he gets his hands on a computer, he heads to an IT message board to talk to others who may be able to help him figure this thing out. Phyllis has her meeting with Nick at the Athletic Club. She tells him that when she said before that she didn’t do anything to the Newman computers she wasn’t exactly telling the truth. “I put something there that doesn’t do any harm, but it allows me to go back into the system whenever I want, from any computer. I only did it spontaneously without thinking. It could only cause a problem if I tell it to. What I want to do is go over to Newman with you and put things right. When I saw how full of hate Jack has been getting toward Newman, I knew that this was really wrong.” Nick feels slighted. He sees now that his sister and father were right about him having been a fool. She says that she actually did the same thing that he did. “I didn’t have to come to you now and tell you what I did, but I did it because it was the right thing and I wanted you to know that you can trust me. This is just like when you came to court with Cassie’s clothes and freed my son from prison. You didn’t have to do that but you did because it was the right thing.” Nick sees that they are never really going to agree on what it was that Phyllis was intending to do when she went into the computer and did what she did, but what he does know is that someone is going to find out what she did, and soon. She is sure that no one will find out. “They are using Kevin to try to catch me. Trust me, he will never find what I did in there. He doesn’t know computers like I do.” Nick makes a decision. “Okay Phyllis. Come with me and let’s go to Newman so that you can fix what you did to the computer.” Sheila is in Tom’s room. Now that Paul and Michael have left, she takes advantage of Tom’s empty room so that she can search it and see where that bastard has hid the necklace that he keeps threatening her with. She tears the room apart but finds nothing. Suddenly, she sees some odd color things on the floor. “Dead cockroaches? Why would there be dead cockroaches just lying like that on the carpet?" Sheila goes over to the dead insects and slowly peers under the bed. She sees something and she reaches underneath the bed to get it. “Yes!" She opens the Kleenex and sees the necklace inside. “Can’t celebrate right now. I have to clean this place up and get out of here.” Sheila cleans up the room and then returns to her own with the necklace. She gets her facemask and the gloves that she used before and she mixes her brew of poison at the table. She drops the necklace in a bowl of the mixture and then gets a toothbrush to really rub it in good making sure that every link is covered with the solution. Once she is finished, she cleans up her materials for safety, puts the poison wrapped in a napkin in her purse, and then pops the fake dentures in her mouth to complete her look as Jennifer. She then peers into the hall to make sure that it is clear before rushing out into the hallway on her mission. Later she returns to her room, walking slowly, and relaxed. “Sorry Tom. Some toys are just too dangerous to play with.” Scott and his mother are alone at the apartment and Lauren was trying to get the story out about the ‘evil’ woman who she had met before Scott was born and how someone had tried to kill her way back when. Lauren says a couple of things but then can’t continue. This is too hard for her. “Look honey, I tell you what. The next time that you need a really good story, I will tell you all about this, but not now okay?" Scott’s hopes are dashed. He really wanted hear the story of his mother’s past, but remains patient and respectful of her wishes. Lauren fixes them something to eat and then the telephone rings. Scott is closer to the telephone and so he goes to answer it. “Mom it is for you.” Lauren takes the receiver from him. “Yes? What? Where? Thank you.” She gets off the telephone and turns to her son. “They found my necklace. This is strange. That means that Tom didn’t steal it after all.” Scott feels that this is really important and tells his mother that they have to call Michael and tell him the news, but Lauren wants to get her wits about her first before riling him up. Tom is being offered the deal of a lifetime. “You give Paul and I the necklace and the name of the person who tried to kill Lauren and we will make sure that the charges against you disappear," Michael promises. Tom needs to know how Michael can magically free him from his troubles. Michael points to Paul saying that he has friends downtown who owe him favors, and it wouldn’t be hard to make sure that certain bags of ‘this and that’ disappear from the appropriate evidence room if necessary. “Would you really do that Paul," Tom asks. Paul nods confirming what Michael just told him. Tom at first says that he will work with them offering to give up the necklace and the name later. Michael can’t make that deal. “I need everything now or we walk and you roll the dice in court and hope for the best.” Michael and Paul turn to walk out the door, but Tom calls out to them. “Okay, I will tell you the name of the attempted killer, and give you the poisoned necklace," Tom says. Michael waits impatiently. “Come on Tom. What is the name?" Sharon finally gets to do her web cast. She is doing great until the callers turn the discussion from the beauty products to her dead daughter. They are not mean to her. They express sympathy but it confuses Sharon and changes her focus. Brad rushes to the front and takes over while Sharon moves out of the way of the camera. Later when alone in the boardroom, Sharon breaks down. She worries that the fans think that she is a fake and is only there as spokes model because she is married to the boss’s son, and she feels that she should have been more professional when Cassie was brought into the picture. “What did I think that I was doing going for this job? It takes people years to learn how to do a thing like this. I am over my head with this Brad.” She starts to cry. He stops her and tells her that she is not a fake. “You are the real thing Sharon Newman and everyone knows that.” As they stare into each other’s eyes, something changes. He moves forward, she lets him and then they are kissing.
