The Y&R Update Thursday 7/6/17
Written by Ellen
At home, Lily vents to Jordan. Its possible Cane isnt the father of Juliettes baby, but if he is, it means big changes in their lives.
At the pool, Mattie and Reed continue to learn new things about each other. Not only does Matties dad work for Reeds mom but so does Matties mom. Reed knows Lily is the spokesmodel for Brash & Sassy. Does Mattie have any aspirations in that direction? No, she likes to eat. What she would like is a summer internship at the company. Reed is eager to help and offers to put in a good word with his mom. Mattie has that covered. No offense, but she thinks her dad might have more pull. Reed agrees. Mattie would be wise to consider an alternative plan, though, because at that very moment, at Brash & Sassy, Victoria fires Cane.
Paul and Michael share a table on the Crimson Lights patio and discuss Kevins whereabouts. Paul is worried sick. Michael tells him to relax. Kevin is on a well-deserved vacation. Paul wont let it rest. Does Michael have the phone number of the resort where Kevin is staying? Yes. Then for Gods sake, call it! Paul says. Michael does so and learns that Kevin never checked in.
In a car in front of Dr. Harriss house, Kevin and Chloe consider their next move. His plan is to retrieve Bella from Genoa City and meet up with Chloe somewhere to be determined. Chloe has many doubts about its viability. The doctor will regain consciousness eventually and hell call his accomplice for help.
Again at the Ashbys: Lily frets about how to tell her teenagers they might have a sibling on the way. They idolize their dad and will be crushed to find out hes been lying all along about getting drunk and having unprotected sex with another woman. Jordan can do nothing but sympathize.
At the pool: Reed challenges Mattie to a swimming contest. She declines, but hes free to do a few laps while she studies.
Hilary pays an unexpected visit to Juliettes hotel suite. Shes disturbed about something Juliette said earlier, about expecting Cane to be a hands-on father to Juliettes child. If she thinks that will happen, shes deluding herself. Juliette takes offense and lashes out at Hilary for forcing the lawsuit that led to this point. She immediately apologizes for losing her cool but makes it clear she wants more than money from Cane.
At Brash & Sassy: Cane begs Victoria to reconsider and has the nerve to tout his role in securing the Asian market. Victoria wont budge. She cant trust Cane, pure and simple. And she can trust Billy? This remark further inflames Victoria. Cane should have done the noble thing and resigned. Fixing his family should be his priority. She tells him to be gone by the time she returns to her office. If he isnt, shell call security.
At Crimson Lights: Michael still gives Kevin the benefit of the doubt. Paul wishes he had more resources to locate Kevin. Kevin was his best tracker and now hes the one missing. Meanwhile, in the car, Kevin assures Chloe that theyre safe. Kevin is the best tracker at the GCPD, so he would know if he were being followed. Chloe is unwilling to cooperate and is still shaken from the trauma of being mistaken for the doctors dead daughter. Kevin urges her to trust him. Theyll make a new life after he makes a solo trip back to Genoa City.
In Juliettes room: Hilary says one doesnt need a father in order to become a successful adult. Shes living proof. Juliette respectfully disagrees. Her dad meant the world to her, and Juliette has seen firsthand what a fantastic dad Cane is. Hilary suspects Juliette has developed feelings for Cane.
At the Ashbys: Jordan invites Lily to call if she needs him; otherwise, hell see her at the next photo shoot. *If* theres another shoot, Lily says. Shes enjoyed working with Cane at Brash & Sassy even though he wasnt too keen on her modeling. It would be a shame if it ended. Whatever the outcome, Jordan says, Lily isnt to blame. Cane is.
Kevin makes a quick run for fast food and startles Chloe when he returns to the car. Shes jumpy and eager to get the show on the road before she loses her nerve. Kevin thinks he knows the source of her anxiety and wants to talk about it.
From Crimson Lights, Michael leaves a voice mail for Kevin, begging him to call back ASAP. In the meantime, Paul has decided to initiate a search. Michael has his own idea and takes off to pursue it.
As a lifeguard, Charlie patrols the pool deck. He trumps up a charge against Reed for kicking other swimmers and confronts him in front of Mattie, who defends Reed. Its obvious Charlie disapproves of his sisters taste in boys, but in the midst of his posturing, a blonde sidles up and tells Charles to call her later, and he gets a ribbing for it.
In her suite, Juliette insists she has no long-term expectations. She and Cane had a one-nighter. She misses their friendship, though, and hopes to restore it. Hilary thinks thats unlikely. Juliette is irritated by Hilarys constant negativity. No, she hadnt planned on moving halfway around the world for a job, getting fired, and winding up pregnant, but shes trying to make the best of it. Theyre interrupted by a knock at the door. Cane smirks when Juliette answers and he sees Hilary perched on the sofa. Celebrating? he asks. Juliette invites Hilary to leave, which she does. Juliette is glad for the opportunity to talk to Cane. They havent had a chance to since she broke her news. Canes cynical response stuns her. Does she work this scam often? Get pregnant for a payoff? Falsely accuse men of sexual harassment? Juliette strikes back. Getting fired for someone elses mistake wasnt part of her plan. That was just dumb luck.
Gabrielle is a guest at the hotel and Charlie agreed to show her around town. Thats all. Reed cant help taunting him. Does Zoey know about this arrangement? Charlie storms off. Mattie is amused by the repartee between her brother and Reed, but she thinks if Reed gets to know Charlie, hell like him. Mattie leads Reed to think that Charlie scrutinizes all of her suitors. This piques Reeds interest and he presses her to commit to a movie date. She tells him to check the theater schedule, pick out a good flick, and text her. On her way out, she passes Hilary, who comments on the teens good mood and then proceeds to Jordan, stretched out on a lounge chair. How did his conversation with Lily go? Jordan isnt smiling when he asks Hilary whether she already knew Juliette was pregnant.
In the car: Kevin and Chloe havent had a chance to discuss her murdering Adam. He wishes she hadnt done it, but he understands her motives. Not to worry. Hell stick by her.
Michaels plan to get information from Esther at the Chancellor mansion doesnt pan out. She hasnt heard from Kevin either. While there, Michael gets a call from Paul with more disturbing news. It turns out Kevin didnt even board his flight to Tahiti. As Michael and Esther speculate and try not to panic, Kevin enters. They smother him with hugs and then demand to know where he got the bumps and bruises. More important: Where has he been? Oregon. Hes moving there with Bella.
Victoria plants herself on a barstool poolside and orders a vodka martini. Reed finds her thus. Would she like to talk about her bad day? In a nutshell, she settled the lawsuit thats been hanging over her head and fired one of her top executives. In contrast, Reed is having an outstanding day. Do tell. Well, he met that girl hes been telling Victoria about, and she agreed to a movie date. Wonderful. Victoria looks around. Shed like to meet her. Reed smiles. Thats the best part. Victoria already knows her: Mattie Ashby. Victoria stares blankly and says Cane is the employee she let go.
Lily stews at home and even sheds a few tears, but she pulls herself together when Mattie enters, full of questions. Where is Dad? Why hasnt he returned her texts? Did he ask about the Brash & Sassy internship? One question is answered when she spies Canes phone on the coffee table. Lily encourages Mattie to consider an internship elsewhere. Things at Brash & Sassy are in a state of flux. But Mattie is more determined than ever. Remember the guy she told her mom about? Hes Reed Hellstrom. His mom is Lily's and Canes favorite boss. Small world, huh? Now about the internship: Why are her parents trying to prevent her from working at Brash & Sassy? Is Dad in trouble?
At the pool: Hilary defends herself. Juliettes pregnancy wasnt Hilarys news to tell, and besides, breaking the story would have adversely affected Lily and Charlie and Mattie. Jordan understands completely. His beef is with Cane, not Hilary. Hilary ventures that Lily might be driven to revenge with another man. Jordan cant imagine Lily would sink to such depths.
In her suite, Juliette reminds Cane that hes not the only one suffering consequences, although his firing is news to her and shes sympathetic. He doesnt need her pity; he needs her to cooperate with a paternity test. Now. Juliette refuses. Not today. Shes exhausted. He implies that her reluctance is an admission of guilt and she goes willingly.
