On Monday, May 17 Jack becomes very frustrated when he learns of Ashley’s new job. Amber makes a difficult decision that could end her marriage to Daniel.

The Inside Story: Causing a Commotion
As Ashley begins her first day as CEO, she is stunned to see her daughter outside of the building picketing. With camera crew there, Abby continues to make a scene, that is, until Ashley arrives and whisks her daughter back up to her office for an explanation. Realizing that her mother is now in charge at Jabot, Abby apologizies, but it’s clear that she is focused on causing trouble more-so for the company, not Ashley. Once she’s left from Jabot, Abby contacts Kent, who is a producer, and the two talk at Crimson Lights about doing a reality show focusing on her and her life in Genoa City.
A Closer Look:A Forbidden Romance
Victoria and Billy continue to enjoy being with one another, but both soon find themselves face-to-face with Victor and Jack. Victor lashes out that Victoria wasn’t raised to fall for a punk kid like Billy Abbott; while Jack points out that Billy is messing around with the enemy. Meanwhile, JT also has some strong feelings about Billy and his ex being together. When JT points those feelings out, Billy simply disregards him and continues to see Victoria, regardless of what anyone thinks. Unfortunately for both of them, their forbidden love affair starts to create more tensions between the Abbotts and the Newmans; and Victor and Jack are determined to do whatever to end their union.
