    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "The Young and the Restless" Episode Recap – Tuesday, July 12, 2011.

    IT HAPPENED TODAY…

    Rafe showed up at Victoria's to find out if she had seen Billy at all. She said she hadn't seen him, and he said that today was the custody case, but he didn't know where he was. Back at Crimson Lights, Chloe was talking about how she was doing the right thing and didn't have any regrets in her decision to obtain sole custody of Delia. Back at the trailer, a passed out Billy, obviously on a drinking bender, didn't hear his cell phone.

    Sam was talking to Sharon when Victor made his presence known. Interrupting their conversation, Victor asked how Sharon was doing. He soon focused his attentions on Sam, asking her about him. Sharon told Victor that Sam was the one that helped her when she found herself in New Mexico. She introduced Sam, but Sam surprised them both when he said he was very well aware of who Victor Newman was. Meanwhile, back in his suite, Adam was still sulking over Sharon's new man and his decision to toss out the memory card. He was still stewing when Diane knocked on his door. When she sauntered in, he made it clear he didn't want her around. She tried to convince him that they needed to work together to get even with Victor, but Adam had a new motto: "Do unto others before they do it to you." He told Diane if she didn't want to be one to get on his bad side, it was best she left. Outside of his suite, she hurriedly called to make an appointment to see D. A. Walsh to bring down Adam.

    Noah told Eden that he didn't have a reason to stay in Genoa City; that just yesterday they were scattering another person's ashes, believing it to be his mother. With a little talking to, Eden convinced Noah to stay.

    Victoria went to the trailer and found Billy already dressed to head to the courthouse. She showed concern for him and he admitted that he was nervous. She gave him a pep talk and told him to focus on how much he loves Delia and just be honest when he takes the stand. At the courthouse, Chloe and Rafe were both wondering if Billy would even show up.

    Adam was at the bar of Gloworm when Sharon called him. Adam wasn't all that thrilled to hear from her but she convinced him to see her; she had explaining to do about why she stayed away, as well as Sam. As for Sam, he was being grilled by Victor. Victor wanted to know what he was trying to achieve by coming back to Genoa City with Sharon. Sam was slightly insulted and told Victor that he didn't have any motivation; he wanted to know what was going on. He started to tell of how he first came in contact with her and as he was talking, Victor realized that Sam truly cared about Sharon. Sharon, in the meantime, saw Noah in the hallway and the two embraced.

    D.A. Walsh met up with Leslie and Diane. He told her he didn't like being ordered around and said she better have something good for him to go on in order to pin Adam with a crime. She shared about the ambulance and how she knows that Adam was the one that was behind everything. She said she had a reliable source who Adam paid to set things in motion. With Leslie's help, they convinced D.A Walsh to take things into consideration.

    Noah and Sharon talked in the visitation room. She admitted that she didn't know how he would have reacting to her coming back after how they left things. Over the course of their conversation, Noah told Sharon that he would be there for her. After he left, Sam went in to talk to her. He lectured her on always running away from her problems and asked her if she was so willing to do that to him and Piper. Sharon told Sam that he didn't need to be involved in everything that was going on with her and that it would be best for him to leave for New Mexico. Sam, however told her he was going to stick around; he'd make his own decision on when he was going to leave. When he walked out, Adam spotted him.

    Adam talked to Sharon, who explained about Sam. Still trying to hide is disappointment, Adam told her that he understood that she turned to someone else who wanted to help her. Things seemed to be going well until Sharon admitted that she saw him in New Mexico at the fair. He wanted to know why she didn't come to him. She said she believed it was best for him to move on and that she wanted to make a new life for herself. She told him that Noah informed her about the proof he came up with. Ego bruised, Adam told Sharon that Noah had it all wrong; he never found anything to clear her name. Sharon was crushed.

    Billy walked into the court room, apologizing for his tardiness. Chloe was the first to take the stand and she told the judge that she was the best suited person to care for Delia. She listed all of Billy's faults and crimes and said he wasn't responsible. Rafe took her to task and asked her on her crimes. She said that she was cleared of all those; he turned the tables and said, if she was cleared of all those crimes and still a good parent, Billy clearly is one too. Billy too to the stand and unlike Rafe, Chloe's lawyer went at him hard, damaging his reputation. As the custody case was going, Victoria ran into Esther and Delia. Victoria made an attempt to try to get Esther to talk to Chloe to drop the case, but Esther pointed out she needed to look out for the best interest of her own daughter.

    Outside in the police station, Victor saw that Sam was getting ready to leave. Noah said that he was most likely going to head back to New Mexico. When Victor looked over his shoulder at the closed door of the vistor's area, he told Sam that he thought it was in the best interest for him to stay: Adam was nothing but trouble. Sam was surprised that Victor would talk so negatively about his own flesh and blood, but Victor said that the only thing that mattered was that someone be there for Sharon, and it was clear that Sam was the one.

      IT HAPPENED TODAY…

      A stunned crowd watched as Marco and Lee approached Sharon, cuffing her. Sharon sputtered her apologies to a confused Sam, who wanted to know what was going on. Meanwhile, in Genoa City, Phyllis and Nick were getting ready to have desk sex when each received phone calls: Phyllis, from a source, giving her the news about Sharon, while for Nick, the detective on the case, letting him know that his ex was very much alive and being sent back home.

      While listening to the audio on the memory card, Adam became happy to know that he would finally have proof that Sharon didn't kill Skye, but rather was trying to help her. He soon received a news blurb on his computer and was thrilled to find out that Sharon wasn't dead. As he was rejoicing over the news, back at Jabot, Jack, who was on his computer, was interrupted by Victor, who was there to harass him about Ashley possibly wedging him out of his job. Jack pointed out that he had three months to prove himself; and he planned on doing that. Their bicker session took a backseat however, when they got word about Sharon.

      At Crimson Lights, Noah walked in to see Ashley with Faith. She asked him on how he was doing and he admitted it was hard for him scattering Sharon's ashes for the memorial service. When he looked up at the televison screen, he saw the breaking news. Both he and Ashley watched in stunned silence.

      Phyllis, was the first on the scene at the police station, attempting to squeeze in to get the first interview. D.A. Walsh blocked her and told her she wasn't permitted anywhere inside. Depite her insistance, she was escorted out and she got her first look at Sharon, who was being escorted into the preceinct. Phyllis left the room and ran into Adam and immediately started to nag him. Not phased by her, Adam told her he was going to be there for the woman he loved. At that moment, Nick showed up and both he and Adam walked into the room to see Sharon for the first time.

      Jack ran into Ashley and seeing her with Faith, begin to question her sudden bond with the little girl. Ashley assured her she was there only because Nick had a situation with the baby-sitter. Jack was still not convinced but shelved the worry to discuss with her about the news of Sharon being alive. Ashley didn't mince words on how she felt, pointing out that Sharon put herself before her children. When Jack started to place the blame solely on Adam and Victor, Ashley said that Sharon had a mind of her own and she used it to run away from everything and everyone.

      Victor met up with Michael to discuss Sharon. Michael pointed out that now that Sharon is alive and back in Genoa City, it could spell trouble for his company. Michael advised Victor to stay away from Sharon and everything pertaining to what was going on with her. Despite his warning, it was clearn that Victor was going to involve himself.

      At the jail, D. A. Walsh grilled Sharon, determined to get her to admit that Adam helped her escape. She told him that it was all her, but he laughed, saying it was impossible for her to do all of that on her own, that it was clear that she had some help. Sticking to her story, she said she was the one that left. Nick started to talk to Sharon and admitted that he was glad she was alive. When he slowly learned from her that she knew that everyone thought she was dead, he lashed out at her and said he was done. Adam, who was there, told Sharon he understood and was there for her.

      Ashley and Jack were talking when Nick called to ask her to continue watching Faith for a bit. She asked him if he had seen Sharon and he told her he did and shared that she intentionally let everyone believe that she was dead. When she hung up the phone, Jack asked on the phone call. Ashley repeated what Nick and said. She said that Sharon was selfish to put her family and friends through so much pain; abandoning Faith and Noah because of her own needs. Jack tried again to place the blame on Victor and Adam but Ashley blocked it; Adam and Victor didn't make her decide to stay away; she did that all on her own. Meanwhile, Noah was on the phone trying to set up plane reservations to get out of Genoa City as soon as possible. Eden, who overheard, tried to convince him not to abandon his mother.

      Sharon tried to talk to Adam about being in New Mexico, but Adam was too busy gushing on how he had her back. His gush fest was cut short when Sam walked in and called out to her. He told her he couldn't leave things the way they were without knowing what was going on. Adam saw the instant attraction between the two of them and realized that she moved on with Sam. Without a word, Adam walked out. He soon was at the bridge where the memorai was done. In a fit of anger, Adam threw the memory card; the only proof of helping Sharon into the river.

Jessica leaves to see to her daughter, and Natalie leaves for the police station, where John is questioning Brody about the tape recorder, found on Gigi’s person at the time of her death and lately missing from the evidence room.

                Brody produces the tape recorder and covers the reason it is in his possession. The tape is played – but it’s blank.
