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

Ashley is frozen. She is with Tom alone in the alley. He is covered with blood and laying on his stomach very still. Tom suddenly makes a movement to grab Ashley’s foot and he does which frightens her. She backs up so that he can’t reach her if he tries that again but he really looks like he won’t. Ashley freezes again and just stares down at him. The police roll up and order her to drop the gun. She does. Her hands and bagged and her wrists are cuffed behind her as she is read her rights. She is then taken downtown where she is put in an interview room, but she says nothing, and will say nothing until she talks to an attorney. She calls Christine. Christine comes to see Ashley but can’t see how she can get this work done in time for Ashley to be let out of jail that night. When Christine gets more details, she is surprised at what she leans. “Tell me Ashley… Did you shoot Tom Fisher tonight?" Michael is arrives at the alley, and he sees all the commotion and then Tom tied to a stretcher. “What happened to him? He is my stepfather.” He learns that Tom has been shot. Michael doesn't care about him. “That is the bastard that shot my wife!" Michael shouts. “Isn’t that right Tom?" It takes all the attendants to keep him from the stretcher and from tearing Tom apart. Kevin has something to figure out now. “Who got to you Tom? Who go to you first?" He calls Kevin and tells him that he has to get to the hospital. “Tom just got shot and he might not make it. Meet me at the hospital.” Paul gets the word. In an attempt to figure out whose fingerprints are whose, he gets the confirmation that he expected. The woman in the Mental Institution is not really Sheila. This is all beginning to make sense to him now. Scott comes over and Paul tries to fill him in as best he can. “Do you know this woman?" Paul shows Scott the picture of Sheila in correctional institute clothing. “That is 'Brenda'!" Scott says. Paul corrects him. “That is Sheila Carter. She has been after your mother from years. She took you as a baby and it took a year for Lauren to get you back from her. She took Lauren to a farmhouse and kidnapped her…” Scott knows this story. “…And she started a fire! This is the story! This is the story that we were writing," Scott shouts. “Only Sheila turned everything around to make my mother look like the bad guy in all this.” Paul convinces Scott that he can help with this. “She won’t hurt you Scott. You are the reason that she has done all of this.” Scott gets on his phone and calls 'Brenda'/Sheila’s voicemail. He leaves a message for her to call him. “I really need someone to talk about this with. My mother is gone and we are good friends. So please call.” When Scott hangs up, Paul smiles. Now all they have to do is wait. Phyllis and Nikki are on cloud nine. Everyone that has heard their idea loves it. Victor wishes that he could be a part of it, but he understands that his wife had to go to her company first about it. Phyllis and Nikki touch base. Phyllis is at the coffeehouse thinking about what a great feeling it is to change from being a computer person to entering this whole new field as a career. Jack finds her in the back on the patio and he comes over to her looking very unhappy. She bounces up to him happily but he is not in the mood. “How dare you go over my head Phyllis," he demands to know. She said that she and Nikki had to do that as they really believed in this idea and had to keep trying to make it work. “That is not the point. I am in charge and I am stopping this.” Phyllis says that Jill liked the idea so much that she is giving seed money for it. Jack didn’t know that and he assures her that he will not let this happen. Phyllis feels that he is just being vindictive. “How would you feel Phyllis if I give you the money for this and it didn’t work and I had to pull out?" Phyllis says that wouldn’t happen, and even if it did, at least you would have given me a chance. Jack tells Phyllis that her jumping into another field is not a good idea. “You are good at what you do with the computers. How about we go out to dinner and discuss finding something else for you in your current field that you can really find challenging. Phyllis doesn’t want to do that, and she doesn’t want to go to dinner and chat. Jack gets his knickers in a bunch and leaves. Phyllis calls Nikki and tells her what happened. Victor is in the room and hears that Jack has nixed the idea. Nikki tells that things will be okay. “Victor will help us get this started.” Victor has his back to Nikki, and he smiles. Phyllis tells Nikki to get Victor over there to meet with her so they can get this party started. Gloria is in a panic. Michael didn’t sound right, Ashley hasn’t returned to the house and she has done what she was told to do which was to call the police and wait at home. She looks through the whole house for John and then realizes that he has gone and didn’t tell her where he was going. She then gets a call. “Yes… This is Mrs. Abbot. What? He was in a car accident?" She hangs up and gets her coat to head out of the house.
