THIS WEEK ON: THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS

Gloria gets a big dose of ‘brush off’ from Katherine, Monday April 27. That same day, Adam may be basking in the afterglow of love-making with Heather, but Victor’s warnings about making trouble may leave a bitter taste in his mouth. On Tuesday, April 28, Ashley insists she hears the cries of a baby.

The Inside Story: Down for the Count
Determined that Sharon goes down stealing, Phyllis continues to talk to Lauren about making sure charges are pressed against her nemesis. While Phyllis is putting the pressure on Lauren, Sharon, on the other hand wants to make things right by doing the right thing. She decides to write out a confession about everything she has taken. Nick, realizing that she’s not changing her mind, tries talking her out of it but her mind is made up. Nick tells Sharon he only wants to help her and make sure she realizes what consequences are in store by her going to the police. Sharon points out that the best thing that he could do for her is to go back to the family he has. Meanwhile, after Nick has left, Sharon begins to get a nagging feeling about what happened to her room and decides to do some sluething. She soon finds herself seeing Phyllis on a survillence tape entering her room on the night that she and Nick were up at the Abbott cabin. She quickly gives the information over to the authorities. At Newman Enterprises, Nick approaches Phyllis about how things have been between them and admits that he wants to be with her. Phyllis is thrilled that Nick is returning to her and they are preparing to head home to make up when the police arrive, ready to arrest Phyllis for breaking and entering. A stunned Nick heads back over to see Sharon and insists she drop the charges against his wife. Heather, who is there to take her statement is not pleased when Nick sidelines her and takes Sharon’s written confession and burns it in the fireplace. Nick reminds Sharon that it is the anniversary of Cassie’s death and that enough has happened already for her to be dealing with more problems in her life. Meanwhile back at the police station Phyllis is approached by Jack who wonders why Nick isn’t there by her side. When Phyllis begins to wonder that herself, Jack tells her it’s time to end the war with Sharon for good. At that same time, Lauren arrives ready to press charges against Sharon but Phyllis convinces her that it’s time to just let it go. When Nick arrives Phyllis lets him know that Lauren won’t be pressing charges after all and he quickly gives the news to Sharon in hopes that she drops her charges against Phyllis. Annoyed that Phyllis is once again coming out the winner of Nick’s heart, Sharon tells him she’ll drop the charges on one condition: he stay out of her life for good.

Katherine, tired of Jill’s turning of a blind eye to the fact that all three tests were legitimate, leaves. Shortly after, Nikki arrives at Jill’s office and snaps into her about her constant doubts. Jill sneers at her that she will never believe the DNA test is correct. Nikki hits a nerve when she tells Jill that she doesn’t even know who she belongs to and that if she feels the need to be right, to choose a lab of her own to conduct the test. Without realizing it Jill blurts out that Nikki best contact Brock to return to Genoa City to coduct a final DNA test. Taking her advice, Nikki does exactly that and calls Brock with the news that Katherine is still alive and is needed back home. Afterwards she shares the news with Katherine who instantly begins to worry but Nikki assures her that Brock will know who she is. As the women are talking, Katherine admits that she has grown to love Jill as her ‘daughter’. Meanwhile, Brock who is at the coffeehouse meets with Nikki who asks him if he’s ready to see Katherine. When they head to Murphy’s trailer Brock is overcome with emotions and hugs his mother. Katherine, happy to have someone else believe her, tells Brock about her memory lapses.

Jill, having second thoughts shows up at the trailer and Katherine is stunned to see her. Things start off cordially between the two women until Katherine tells her about her diagnosis. Jill quickly points the finger at Katherine telling her that it’s nothing more than another con. Fed up with Jill’s accusations, Katherine tears into her and midway through her tongue lashing Jill realizes that she truly is Katherine. Unable to handle the truth it becomes Jill’s turn to lash out warning Katherine to stay away from Billy and Chloe’s wedding. Katherine dismisses her warnings and tells her that she will be attending that wedding whether she likes it or not.
