                  ( — "The Young and the Restless" Episode Recap – Friday, May 6, 2011.

                  IT HAPPENED TODAY…

                  At the police station, Chloe is feeling remorseful that Lucy has been taken from Billy and Victoria due to her filing for custody of Delia. Phyllis and Daniel arrive and approach DA Walsh to see if there can be anything done. He tells them that his hands are tied. Back at the Abbott house, Billy and Victoria decide to head to the police station.

                  Ashley and Nikki run into one another at Crimson Lights and talk on Katherine's campaign to help find Kevin. Both agree that Kevin may not have had anything to do with it. Ashley tells Nikki she was on her way to see Billy to see if Delia would like to be her flower girl for the wedding. As she steps away, Nikki receives a call from Victoria, filling her in on what has happened. Nikki promptly heads on out.

                  At the cemetery, Lily thinks that she could still be imagining things; that is until Cane appears to her. Cane assures her that she's not losing her mind; he's very much real. Lily wants to tell someone that Cane is still alive but Cane is dead set against it. He wants her to keep things quiet. Pulling her into a kiss, he tells Lily that he misses the twins. She tells her about how much they have grown. He request for her to bring them to the cemetery.

                  Letting Kevin out of the closet, Jana tells Kevin that they have big plans for him; she wants them to be back to the way they were. She forces a kiss on him but he rebuffs her. Kevin tells her that he wants the old Jana back; the one that he shared so many good times together. When he mentions that she was the one that saved him from Clint, Jana corrects him saying that it was Amber that saved him. She complains that people called them Bonnie and Clyde and that's what she wants to have him be that way with her. She says that they have to do something shocking together.

                  Michael and Phyllis try their best to talk to DA Walsh into helping Billy and Victoria. Unfortunately their request falls on deaf ears, considering how Lucy came into Billy and Victoria's home to begin with. Soon after, Billy and Victoria arrive and see Chloe. Victoria blames her for Lucy being taken from out of their home. Despite Chloe's attempts to apologize, Victoria continues to attack her until Nikki shows up and pulls her out of the police station. Once they are gone, Billy ushers Chloe to talk to him in one of the visitation rooms. He blasts her for taking another daughter away from him. Chloe tells him that she did what she had to do because he's been making irresponsible choices. Scoffing at her, he tells her she's doing the exact same thing when it comes to Kevin.

                  Jana tells Kevin that she's got their crime all planned out. Going behind the desk she pulls out a clown's mask. She then pulls a large box over to Kevin and imitates a chipmunk's noise. She pulls out the chipmunk's head and tells Kevin that he's going to wear it. He tells her he doesn't want to put it on. She threatens to put him back in the closet unless he puts it on. When she tries to put it on him, he pushes her away. He tells her there is nothing she can do to get him to do what she wants. Jana thinks otherwise.

                  Nikki is stunned to learn that Billy bought Lucy and that the baby is not only Daniel's but the grandchild of Sheila Carter. Victoria becomes upset, saying that she doesn't want to lose Lucy; Nikki assures her that she won't lose her. When the doorbell rings, Nikki goes to answer it and is for once glad that Ashley is there. She asks her if she could spend time to talk to her daughter. Ashley does just that, telling Victoria that she knows what she is going through, considering losing Faith. When Victoria sobs that she doesn't know if she can go through a court battle, Ashley tells her not to give up hope.

                  Phyllis has a change of heart in regards to her initial agreement with Billy and Victoria. She tells Michael that she believes that Daniel is going to wind up regretting giving his daughter to someone else. Michael asks her why the sudden change in her feelings. Before the two can finish their conversation, Billy arrives and tells Phyllis that he is appreciative that she's letting them keep the baby. Phyllis decides to stay mum on her change of heart.

                  Chloe is headed to the coffee house when she gets a phone call from Jana, telling her that she has Kevin. Chloe hears him shouting in the background on where they are. Jana tells her to come to the abandoned school and to come alone if she wants to see Kevin alive again. When she hangs up the phone, she tells Kevin that she's going to kill Chloe so that he can be free of his obsession and focus on falling in love with her. Just then Chloe arrives. Before Jana can turn the gun on her, Kevin kicks it out of her hands. Chloe wrestles the gun away from Jana and starts shaking her, not realizing that she's gone into some sort of attack. When Jana goes limp, Chloe tells Kevin that she's dead.

                  Billy arrives home to find Ashley and Nikki there. While Nikki cooly leaves the room, Ashley embraces her brother, telling him that things will be alright. She too leaves the room so that he and Victoria can talk. Things don't go the way he wants them to go when Victoria tells Billy that she thinks he needs to find somewhere else to stay. Billy doesn't want to leave, believing that the two of them need to be together to get through what's going on. Victoria says that if he doesn't leave she will. Both Nikki and Ashley try to tell Billy that it might be best for him to give Victoria some space. A frustrated Billy huffs off. Michael, who has arrived to talk to Victoria goes after him.

                  On the Next The Young and the Restless…
