Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series
During tonight’s Paley Center LA event in Beverly Hills, CA, celebrating 10,000 episodes of “The Young and the Restless,” former head writer and executive producer, Maria Arena Bell, joined cast members Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott), Eric Braeden (Victor Abbott), Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Doug Davidson (Paul Williams), Christian LeBlanc (Michael Baldwin), Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman), Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters), and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Newman) to talk about the shows legacy.
What’s significant about Bell’s appearance was that
up until after her ouster made headlines on Thursday, July 26, the former EP/HW was said to no longer be attending, at least according to sources Soap Opera Network spoke with on Friday, July 27. The Paley Center also removed her name from their website for the event.
During tonight’s event, which was “live tweeted” by @PaleyCenter on Twitter, Bell was quoted as saying the following:
“The Young and the Restless” celebrates its 10,000th episode on Thursday, September 27. The series held a cake cutting party at its CBS Television City studio yesterday in honor of its milestone.
As “The Young and the Restless” gears up for its 10,000th episode tentatively scheduled to air on Thursday, September 27 on CBS, The Paley Center for Media, LA will be hosting a live event on Thursday, August 23 beginning at 7:00 PM PT with much of the veteran cast members of the popular daytime drama series including Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott), Eric Braeden (Victor Abbott), Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Doug Davidson (Paul Williams), Christian LeBlanc (Michael Baldwin), Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman), Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters), and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Newman) scheduled to attend.
Prior to her recent ouster as executive producer and head writer, Maria Arena Bell was also scheduled to attend to event, but we’ve since confirmed via sources that will not be the case now. It is unclear at this time who will replace Bell as a senior member of the shows production, if anyone, for the Paley Center event.
As part of the celebration fans of the popular series can attend the Q&A session, which will be moderated by Brooks Barnes from The New York Times, if they are in the Los Angeles area and willing to cough up $15 for non-members or $10 for members of the Paley Center. If you’re unable to attend in person, @PaleyCenter via Twitter will be the place to tweet to and #PaleyLiveLA will be the hashtag used for discussions around the world. Tweets sent in will be seen on a widget added to the Paley Center page for “Y&R” on the day of the event.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” has cast actor Blake Hood in the contract role of Kyle Jenkins Abbott, the son of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Diane Jenkins (last played by Maura West). The character left the canvas shortly after the murder of his mother last year in the soaps yearly whodunit storyline.
In its reporting, The Hollywood Reporter stated “Kyle was originally believed to be the child of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), but once the truth came out that he was Jack’s son, a custody battle ensued. After the death of his mother, Kyle struggled with anger toward his father and eventually departed for boarding school. It’s unclear which family he’ll return home to when he arrives in Genoa City.” In actuality Kyle and his father left on good terms, but it is likely that the show has changed the storyline around in order to accomodate the SORASing of the character (Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome to soap fans wondering) who is now inline with the age of Abby Newman (Marcy Rylan).
Hood, best known for his portrayal of Mark Driscoll during the second season of the CW’s “90210,” recently appeared in an episode of CBS’ “2 Broke Girls.” The actor has also appeared in ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” FOX’s “‘Til Death,” and NBC’s “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.” In 2010, he appeared as Kennedy Peters-Booth in the box-office hit “Easy A” starring Emma Stone.
Hood is scheduled to mark his “Y&R” debut on Friday, April 27.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Tucker and Ashley are still discussing the text message that they received, both confused on the far away location. When Ashley became worried on what Ronan may know or have, Tucker decided to change the topic to that of their wedding renewal. He was curious to know if she had asked Traci to be her maid-of-honor, but Ashley told him that she was going to ask Abby to be in their wedding. Tucker wasn’t sure on her choice, since he knew how much Abby didn’t approve of their relationship.
Abby arrived at Gloworm and stopped over to talk to Jack and Genevieve. She wondered what they were celebrating. Jack shared the news that he had Jabot back. Abby congratulated him, but the festivities were cut short when Gloria popped by, telling Genevieve that she left a message on her phone. She hadn’t been able to go over to the house at all. At that same time, Genevieve received a phone call from someone, telling her that there was an explosion at her house. A worried Genevieve, followed by Jack and Gloria rushed off.
Outside of the home, Cane comforted Lily. He told her that there was a gas leak in the house. Lily asked if he was following her, but he told her that he was there watching the house already. He told her about the hit that Colin put out on his mother. Ronan soon appeared where he revealed to a stunned Lily about Cane working with the authorities to bring Colin down for his multiple crimes. Lily was still trying to wrap her head around the news she was hearing when Chance, along with an EMT, arrived. Lily realized that Cane was not only working with the police, but the FBI and the US Military. Ronan pointed out to Lily that Cane was a hero for what he did and that he couldn’t break protocol to tell her what was going on.
At Crimson Lights, Phyllis received the text from Ronan to meet at the warehouse. Nick showed up, startling her. She asked him about the photograph of Faith being in the newspaper. She wondered why he didn’t turn to her to put the picture in Restless Style. Nick told her that he wasn’t a willing participant in that photograph. When he mentioned that Avery was the one that was responsible for getting the picture in the paper, Phyllis bristled. Nick soon received the text message from Ronan, which he shared with Phyllis. The two deduced that Ronan was trying to get the other to turn against one another with information, since their alibis didn’t match.
At The Athletic Club, Jill told Colin that she wasn’t letting him go, because she knew he was plotting something. Colin tried to talk his way out of it by telling her that the surprise could be for her, but she wasn’t buying it. She cried that she was tired of his lies and how he’s hurt her twice. She wouldn’t put up with it anymore. She called Ronan, telling him that she had Colin in his suite and that once the police arrived, they could do whatever they wanted with him.
After checking on her house, Genevieve, along with Gloria and Jack, arrived at the hospital to check on Genevieve’s maid, Myrna. Gloria told Genevieve that she was surprised that there was a gas leak to begin with, since she had the house inspected. She went on to share that she was stunned that Genevieve was putting the house back on the market. Genevieve told Gloria she never had plans in putting the house on the market. When they saw Cane and Lily, Jack asked if Lily had been released, but she said that she waiting to be looked at. Lily asked Genevieve if there was any word on her maid’s condition, but Genevieve said no. Cane wondered if she had family but his mother pointed out that she didn’t know much about her maid. Jack called Cane a hero for saving Lily from the gas leak. Genevieve and Gloria learned from Cane that the gas leak was set up by Colin. He wanted to eliminate both of them.
Abby went to see Ashley and Tucker. She told Tucker that she was surprised that he gave Jabot back to Uncle Jack. Tucker said he wanted to do right by Ashley and make her happy. Ashley wanted to know if her daughter would be her maid-of-honor when they renewed their wedding vows. Abby w as getting ready to tell her no, but Tucker cut her off. He told her that regardless, Ashley and he were already married. He knew that Abby would never like him, but he wanted to make her mother the happiest woman ever. Abby admitted that while she thought he was a jerk, she was tired of hating on him. She realized that he made Ashley happy and she was glad, because she deserved it. Abby accepted the honor of being her mother’s maid-of-honor. Their discussion soon changed from wedding talk to that of the text message Abby received from Ronan. Tucker told her that Ashley and he received the same message.
Victoria called Victor over to her house to discuss the text message that she received from Ronan. Victor wasn’t worried about it, stating that Ronan didn’t have anything on them. Victoria told him about her missing bracelet; maybe Ronan had that as evidence. The two of them realized that it was time for them to head out to the location. Meanwhile, back at Crimson Lights, Phyllis and Nick agreed to drive separately to the warehouse; while Jack, who was alone at the hospital, debated if he should go at all.
In Colin’s suite, Ronan and Chance arrived to arrest him. Jill was flabbergasted to see her grandson, who told her that he’d explain everything later. Ronan laid out a list of all of Colin’s crimes that were piled against him, pointing out that his recent stunt cost him big time. Colin told both Ronan and Chance that they had nothing on him, plus he had diplomatic immunity. Chance told Colin that all that changed when the person he bribed in order to get that immunity was arrested. Jill told Colin she never wanted to see him anymore. Colin told her that while she talked a tough game, he knew she still loved him. Just then, Genevieve and Gloria walked in to see the cuffs being put on Colin. Gloria stepped up to him, telling him that he didn’t do away with her, because she was a survivor. As for Genevieve, she was more heart-felt, still unable to believe that her ex would want to have her killed. She told him that he would be growing old in prison. Leaving the three women alone, they each mused at how they could have ever trust Colin. Genevieve pointed out that they were lucky, since they survived what he put them through.
Jack was the first to arrive at the warehouse. He called out to Ronan but nobody was there. He soon was met by Ashley, Tucker and Abby, who told Jack they received the same text message. Nick, Phyllis, Victor and Victoria soon arrived, all of them wondering what was going on. Tucker asked if they all received the same text, which they all said yes to. Jack soon realized that Ronan couldn’t have sent them the text message. Phyllis pointed out they were all called by Diane to meet with her at the park, the last time they all received a text message. Victor wanted to know who could have set them up to meet at the warehouse, if it wasn’t Ronan. A projector cut on showing a newspaper article of Diane Jenkin’s murder. Meanwhile, back at the hospital, in a hospital room, a bandaged figure is shown. The person in the hospital bed has a tattoo of a black cat and flowers decorated on her leg.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Jack met with Ashley at Gloworm, upset by the fact that Tucker was stalling on his deal to hand over Jabot to him. Ashley told Jack that Tucker had been busy in the office, as well as stopping by to see Sofia. She reassured her brother that Tucker would honor his agreement. Meanwhile, Tucker received a call from an anonymous buyer, interested in purchasing Jabot. Tucker was more than impressed by the amount of money the person offered to buy Jabot.
After listening to Colin’s phone call, requesting a hit on both Genevieve and Gloria, Ronan informed Cane that he had police in action to go into Genevieve house the minute the hit took place. Soon after, he learned that Colin was with Jill at his hotel suite, while Gloria was taking care of business at the bank. Cane, however, wanted to make sure that Lily was alright and decided to call her.
Jill had a plan of her own. Sauntering out of the bathroom, she started to lay it on Colin with a neck rub. She then suggested they share a bath together. Colin offered to get the bath ready, and while he was inside, Jill called for a delivery man to drop some items off. When he did, Colin soon emerged, curious to know what was happening. Jill caught Colin’s attention when she showed him a pair of leopard patterned handcuffs. Handcuffing him to the bed, she told him that she had no plans of seduction for him, but rather keeping him away from whatever he had been plotting.
Genevieve received a phone call from Lily, asking if they could talk. She told her that she could come over. Right after talking to Genevieve, Lily received a call from Cane, questioning if she and the twins were alright. Lily informed him that since he refused to tell her the truth as to what he was hiding, she was meeting his mother. Cane tried his best to get her not to go, but a determined Lily ignored him. After hanging up with her, Cane was going to head over to see Lily, but Ronan reminded him that she was not to know about their plans regarding Colin.
Jack and Ashley headed over to Tucker’s office to talk about Jabot. When Jack asked Tucker for the exchange of the company, Tucker told him that someone called making him a wonderful offer to purchase the company. Jack grew angry, telling Tucker that they made a deal that once Jabot was away from Katherine, Tucker would give it to him. When Tucker told Jack that no proof could be shown in his promising to return Jabot to Jack, Jack countered, telling him that Ashley was there to witness everything. Ashley told Tucker not to try to put her in the position of choosing between the two of them. Tucker continued to toy with Jack, but soon told Jack that he had already signed the papers to give Jabot back to the Abbott family. Jack was overjoyed and wanted to celebrate with his family.
After Jack left, Tucker and Ashley toasted with a glass of champagne. Ashley expressed her happiness of Tucker giving Jack the company back. Tucker admitted that he was interested in the offer he was made, but knew that he would be doing right by her by honoring his agreement to Jack.
Cane showed up at Lily’s urging her not to go to see his mother. When Lily blasted him for not telling her what was going on, Cane warned Lily that both his parents were dangerous and for her to stay away from them. Tired of his not being honest with her, Lily told Cane to stay away from her and the children.
Jack, on a high from getting Jabot back, headed over to see Genevieve. When he shared the news with her, Genevieve was thrilled for him. He told her that he didn’t think he’d get the company back after Tucker was offered a better deal to get Jabot. She wanted to celebrate with her special brand of champagne but realized that her maid, Myrna wasn’t there to serve it up to them. She suggested that they go to Gloworm to celebrate.
Ronan realized that Jack and Genevieve weren’t at her place, but left to head to Gloworm. Lily, meanwhile, debated if she should listen to Cane’s request in staying at home and away from Genevieve. After she called Jill, leaving a voice message for her, Lily made up her mind to go to the house to see Genevieve.
Tucker and Ashley both received text messages from Ronan, requesting a meeting at a remote warehouse. They both wondered what was going on. Jack, who was still celebrating with Genevieve, received the same text message. Meanwhile, Ronan, who was still on stakeout near Genevieve’s house, noticed that his cell phone was missing.
Lily made her way to Genevieve’s, knocking on the door to see if she was home. She walked inside, calling out to Genevieve, but didn’t get a response. From a distance, Cane was frustrated that Lily went to see his mother, despite his warning. Ronan told Cane that he couldn’t reveal what was going on to Lily, but Cane wasn’t going to put her life in danger. He ran out of the van and into the house, trying to get Lily to leave. Lily refused, determined to talk to Genevieve. Back at the van, Ronan was glad that Chance, who somehow was also on the case, showed up. The two of them rushed away from the van, to the house. Inside the house, Lily noted that she smelled gas. Cane there and then grabbed Lily, making a dash out of the house, just as the house exploded. Looking up, Cane and Lily watched as the house burned up. They both were unaware that someone was already in the house, lying on the floor.
On the Next The Young and the Restless…
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Early this afternoon, Entertainment Weekly broke the news that daytime’s number one drama, “The Young and the Restless,” has put another former “All My Children” star on contract to join Genoa City’s ranks. This happens just several weeks after wooing the ABC Daytime drama’s acclaimed and long-time casting director, Judy Blye Wilson. The CBS drama and Wilson have snatched up one of Wilson’s most popular Pine Valley finds, Melissa Claire Egan. Beginning on November 11, Egan will debut in the contract role of mystery woman Chelsea.
Egan debuted in the role of Annie McDermott on “AMC” in July 2006. This 30-year old actress would earn a Daytime Emmy nomination for Supporting Actress in 2009 as Annie turned from an all around good girl to Pine Valley’s most psychotic femme fatale. The character was responsible for killing her brother, Richie (Billy Miller), her future lover’s aunt, Di Henry (initially played by Kelly Giddish), and the attempted murders of Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and Greenlee Smyth (Rebecca Budig). At the end of her initial four-year contract in 2010, the actress agreed to a 6-month extension at “AMC’s” request and stopped airing regularly on the soap by February 2011. Egan returned for a short stint during the summer to help say goodbye to the network run of the soap that gave her her big break.
Before hiring Wilson and Egan, “Y&R” had already built up a long history of picking up former “AMC” actors fresh off their Pine Valley stints including Peter Bergman (Jack), Stacy Haiduk (ex-Patty), Amelia Heinle (Victoria) and Debbi Morgan who debuted as Devon’s (Bryton McClure) biological mother, Harmony, earlier today. The cast currently boasts three Blye finds including Miller (Billy), Jeff Branson (Ronan) and the recently fired Eden Riegel (Heather).
Look for Chelsea to play into Billy’s storyline reuniting former co-stars and good pals Egan and Miller.

IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Victor met up with Sam at Crimson Lights. Sam told him that Victoria sprained her ankle while at the stables. Victor was thankful that Sam was there and commented that he didn’t want her to be alone. He did, however, make a comment about Billy. When he questioned Sam on whether she heard from Billy, Sam pretty much wanted nothing to do with being involved, telling Victor he’d have to ask her that question on his own.
At the house, Victoria was walking on crutches, when she spotted Keely sniffing at the closet door. Unaware that Billy was inside, she stood by it, wondering what the dog was sniffing at. Before she could open it, she wound up hurting her injured foot. She took a sit on the chair, rubbing Keely’s fur, while Billy quietly peeked out to get a glimpse of his estranged wife.
At the police station, Ronan was frustrated that they couldn’t locate the missing shoes Victor wore at the night of Diane’s murder. He demanded that his team continue to look for them so he could get some evidence to prove that he was in fact there that night. Meanwhile, Abby, who was at the police station, left a message for Ashley, telling her that she was going to talk to Ronan, stressing that her mother wasn’t a murderer. When she made her way for his office, she stopped dead in her tracks when a police officer came back to report that the manager from the Athletic Club called to report the lockbox that she had. Abby started to sweat when Ronan hurried his way out of his office to go to the club to retrieve the box. Abby immediately followed him.
Ashley and Tucker were having lunch together at Gloworm. She showed him the latest product that was making a dent in business. She expressed how the very product she created was doing so well, but she was not even a part of Jabot anymore. She wanted back in the minute Tucker worked his best to get the company back. She asked on how he’d feel in putting her back as CEO of Jabot once he got the company back. Tucker was hesitant to answer, remembering the deal that he already made with Jack. Ashley said that she felt that Jack and she could work side by side again as co-CEOs. Before she could convince Tucker on the idea, he told her he had an important meeting to get to, and headed out.
After getting off of the phone with Tucker to meet up, Jack’s conscience, John Abbott, appeared. Jack instantly guessed that he was going to lecture him for wanting to take Jabot away from Katherine. He listed all of the reasons why he wanted Jabot back. He realized that he’d be jeopardizing a lifelong friendship with Katherine, but Jack was tired of the family company being used as a way for Tucker and Katherine to get back at each other. Jack was stunned when John didn’t disagree with what he wanted to do; telling his son not to do things half-assed. When Jack turned his back, still talking to his father, the ghost of John soon disappeared. Jack silently thanked his father.
Sam showed up at Victoria’s house. When he walked in, he started gushing over Keely. Billy, however, misunderstood the affections, thinking that Sam was referring to Victoria. Sam continued to gush over Keely, who soon left him to go back to sniff out Billy. The dog soon sat looking at Billy, who was hiding out in the hallway of the house. Sam asked on how Victoria was feeling, and she hinted at how her injure was keeping her from being able to get things; including a mere soda. Sam took the hint and told her that he’d get her a soda. They soon heard a noise, which Sam went to inspect. When Sam was gone, Billy was able to quickly exit the house.
Neil and Katherine were at her home conducting a business meeting. Devon showed up unannounced, excited about finding a possible building. When he proposed his idea, both Katherine and Neil gave their concerns about buying a building so soon. Devon was initially frustrated, thinking that Neil was shooting down his idea because of his past concerns. After Katherine suggested that Devon talk to her legal team and come back with a proposal, she’d give it more thought. She left to take a phone call, leaving Devon and Neil alone. Devon apologized to his father for thinking that he didn’t have his best interest at heart. Neil accepted and told Devon he did believe in him.
Ashley was furious that Abby once again decided to take matters into her own hands. She voiced it with Victor, who told Ashley he warned Abby to stay away from Ronan. After Ashley left, Victor called his daughter, lecturing her on getting mixed up with Ronan; telling her to leave it to him. Abby saw Ronan leaving the club with the lock box. She quickly shared what she discovered with Victor, who again told her to not get roped into what was going on. When they ended their conversation, Abby was on her way out, when Ronan approached her, questioning why she was so curious about what was in the lock box. He took her with him to the police station.
Billy vented his frustrations to the ghost of John Abbott. He shared how he saw Victoria moving on with someone else. He regretted making that deal with Victor in order to save Delia. John told Billy that he made his decision because he was doing what was best for his daughter. John pointed out that he needed to let go of his past with Victoria, or he would only keep himself miserable. Meanwhile, Victoria wrote another email to Billy.
Tucker and Jack met up in his office. Tucker told Jack that once he got his testimony against Katherine, he would make Jack sole controller of all of Jabot’s operations. Jack, however, said that it wasn’t good enough. He wanted Tucker to give him Jabot the minute the company was back in his hands. Tucker was upset that he was going back on their original agreement, but Jack wasn’t budging, pointing out that if he didn’t agree, he wouldn’t testify. Tucker relented and agreed to what Jack wanted. Ashley soon arrived and questioned if Tucker’s meeting was with Jack. When she questioned what they were up to, both men lied to her. Turning to Tucker, Ashley pointed out a past conversation they had: both of them not keeping things from one another. Meanwhile, back at Katherine’s, Neil and Devon were concerned when she shared that she received a phone call from her lawyer. He told her that Tucker was suing her for Jabot.
At the police station, with Abby present, Ronan had the lock box opened. Inside was a journal that Diane was keeping. Ronan told Abby to stay put until he came back. Abby told him that he could talk to her lawyer and walked out. Going to the board of suspects, Ronan wondered what Diane had over Abby. Minutes later, a cop came into Ronan’s office with the shoes Victor wore on the night of Diane’s murder.

Jack learned that his shipments in product were not going out as planned and discovered that his workers were staging to slow things down. When Katherine learned of the problems, she laid the blame at Jack’s feet, but he told her he wasn’t to blame for what was going on. Jack soon learned that Tucker was behind trying to sabotage Jabot. When he informed Katherine, she immediately wanted to call him, but Jack said he could handle it. Katherine threw her weight around, pointing out that she was the one in charge. She called Tucker, insisting that he come see her. When she turned around, Jack was gone.
Tucker was happy to see that Ashley was at his home. While she was still upset with him, she soon softened, glad that he was trying to make things right by her. Tucker asked Ashley if they had a chance to try again. He opened up a jewelry box , showing Ashley a huge diamond ring. He wanted the two of them to renew their vows to one another. He wanted to have the wedding that Ashley always wanted. A happy Ashley said yes to his request and the two shared a passionate kiss then proceeded to the bedroom to have sex.
Eden was still having troubles at Crimson Lights, working with the espresso machine. She voiced her frustration to Daniel. Daniel in turn shared his own woes by telling Eden that Lily hadn’t been answering his telephone calls. He believed that she was still upset at him for going to Neil about Cane. As they talked, Eden made Daniel her guinea pig to taste coffee for her. He told her she was improving. As he talked on taking his own advice he was giving to her, Eden told Daniel that it was really up to Lily to come to him.
Cane showed up at Lily’s to see the twins. When she let him in, she told him that the nanny would be there to supervise his visit. When the nanny did arrive, she told her that she had to step out, which disappointed Cane. Talking to the nanny, she told her to make sure not to leave Cane alone with the twins. Cane assured her that he wouldn’t harm their children.
Jill was getting things set in Colin’s room for their romantic evening together. Wondering where he was, Jill called Colin’s phone but received no answer. After waiting for a period of time, a frustrated Jill got dressed and was ready to leave. When she opened the door, a deliveryman showed up at the door to hand her a bouquet of flowers. Assuming that they were from Colin, Jill opened the card that came with them. She fumed when she read a note from Genevieve stating that she knew she could keep Colin from her. As for Colin, who was locked in the wine cellar, realized he was without his cell phone. Berating himself for once again falling for his ex-wife’s antics, he tried to see if he could find a way out. He, unfortunately came up short. With only a corkscrew with him, he decided to down wine, unaware that Jill was there, looking at the open laptop to show two boarding passes out of Genoa City. Jill assumed that Colin went off with Genevieve.
At the Athletic Club, Ronan bumped into Abby. Abby wanted to know when he was going to arrest Tucker for Diane’s murder. Ronan said he didn’t have anything to go on. Abby, however, pointed out again about the poison sumac. Upset that Ronan wasn’t taking her seriously, she huffed off, heading over to see Ashley. When she got there, she asked her why she was packing. Ashley told her it was time for her to move out. Abby thought she was moving at the Abbott mansion but was upset to learn that she was actually moving back with Tucker. She slammed her decision, telling her that Tucker couldn’t be trusted, especially if he killed Diane. Ashley was angry that Abby was back to her accusations and told her she had to go. Abby shot parting words to her mother that she should watch her back. When she was gone, she called Ronan and told him that she wanted to do his original suggestion on wearing a wire to catch Tucker in a lie.
Jack set up a meeting, pretending to be Tucker, in hopes that some of those who were slowing down business would show up. When they did, Jack was honest, letting them all know that he set up the meeting, wanting to know if Tucker was the one that called upon them to sabotage Jabot’s business. They were upset that he lied, but Jacked worked on them by telling them all Tucker’s real motives: he wanted to destroy Jabot because he was bitter that he no longer had control of the company, and was doing it in order to get back at Katherine. After making a few suggestions, as well as a fair business deal with those in attendance, Jack was successful in getting the workers back on track.
Tucker met with Katherine at her office and was happy to hear that Jabot was having problems. He told her if she didn’t give him the company back, he’ll do much more harm to Jabot. Katherine was furious that Tucker would be that spiteful over not having the company for himself. Tucker didn’t care about Katherine’s feelings and once again told her that if she didn’t give him what he wanted, he’ll take great joys in seeing Jabot fall apart. As the two were there arguing with one another, Jack showed up and told both of them about Tucker’s failed attempt at destroying Jabot. He lectured them for using Jabot as a toy to get back at one another. He pointed out to Katherine that he was the one in charge and that he was doing things without any authority from her. An angry Katherine snapped that Jabot was her company and not his. She pushed Tucker out of her way and huffed out of the door. An angry Jack listened as Tucker told him that as long as Katherine had him wrapped his finger, it would always be this way for him. Jack told Tucker that he’d have his help in getting Jabot away from Katherine on the condition that Tucker kept him in charge.
Lily went to Crimson Lights, where she saw Daniel. She immediately called him out for telling Neil about her situation with Cane. She went on to tell him that she couldn’t trust him. Daniel told her he wasn’t going to apologize for caring about her. Unfortunately, Lily didn’t want to listen to him, instead telling him to stay out of her life.
Abby met with Ronan in his van, ready to be wired to get the dirt on Tucker. Ronan instructed her on how to get the information on Tucker, as well as telling her to be calm when she encounters him. Meanwhile, Ashley, who has returned to Tucker’s home, was opening her mail, when she opened up an envelope that had a picture of Ashley and Diane in a struggle in the park the night she was killed. Freaked out, she tried to call Nick but her message went to his voicemail. At that moment, Abby arrived at the door and Ashley opened it, letting her inside. Abby said she stopped over to talk to Tucker, but Ashley told her he wasn’t there. She noticed that Ashley was upset and wanted to know what was going on. A frightened Ashley started to confess that she was scared that what she did the night that Diane Jenkins died would come back to bite her. She admitted to Abby that she was in the park that night. Abby, realized that Ronan was listening to every word she had said, and tried to get her mother to stop talking.
