Ravi Accepts Victoria's Tempting Offer After Ashley's Latest Rejection
Tuesday December 5, 2017: Phyllis and Billy put a plan in motion, Hilary’s reporting has her in hot water, and Tessa’s in a tough position with Paul.
At GC Buzz, Hilary frets about Tessa being late. Mariah isn’t concerned, but when Devon shows up alone, Hilary panics – she can’t go live with no guest! Devon reassures her, and sits in as their ‘surprise’ guest. Hilary talks up his company’s success and his streaming division. Devon is impressed with her knowledge of the digital music industry.
At the station, Tessa complains to Paul that Victor tipped him off about her role in the gun situation to get her locked up – he wants her out of his grandson’s life. Paul admits the mogul is known for playing by his own rules, and suggests they cut a deal. He offers her immunity in return for evidence that will lead to Victor’s arrest. Tessa knows nothing, so Paul asks if she’d work undercover to get it.
At Crimson Lights, Phyllis coughs into the phone as she tells Lauren she’s too sick to work. She disconnects and tells Billy, “I am ready to take on New York.” They kiss.
Ravi updates Ashley on successful beta-testing at Jabot. He gets a text invitation to a new bar at Top of the Tower and asks her to join him. She declines. After, Billy arrives and broaches the subject of Ashley’s paternity. She assures him nothing will ever change the love she has for him. Billy-rut-Ashley-YR-CBSBilly feels the same. They embrace, then Billy asks to take the company jet to New York. Ash refuses and wonders if he and Phyllis are in a rut. Billy replies that they’re rut-less and have moved back in together. Ash wonders if he’ll propose. Billy won’t ruin it with matrimony. Ash hints she understands having fun, and Billy teases about Ravi. Ash worries she should offer a commitment…but she’s his boss. They discuss Dina. Ash tells Billy he can take the stupid jet, and asks him to come back to Jabot. Billy thanks her for the offer; he’ll see her when he gets back.
At the Abbott mansion, Jack reassures Dina, who’s repeating herself. Nikki arrives and Dina rants about her crawling back on her hands and knees with no dignity. Nikki coos that she’s sorry about the knife incident, and Jack interjects that Nikki knows something about fighting a major illness - she has MS. Dina snipes back about her stealing the spotlight, and doesn’t know anything about the ‘incident’ Nikki referred to…nor does she care! Once alone, Jack worries to Nikki about the day Dina won’t recognize him. Nikki updates him on her visit to the ranch; she can’t explain why she keeps going there. Jack wonders if she’s drifting her way back to the Mustache.
Ravi arrives at the Top of the Tower and Noah takes him to the new ‘members only’ area, which turns out to be an office at Newman Enterprises…where Victoria is waiting with his drink, and a proposal. She wants Ravi to leave Jabot and head up their software development department at Newman. She raves about his skills. Phyllis-Ravi-spend-night-YR-CBSHe questions her motives, but she moves in close and says, “It’s you I’m interested in. Very interested.” Ravi calls it a generous and most tempting offer, but says, “My loyalty is with Ashley…er, Jabot.” Victoria respects that, but urges him to think on it. Ravi goes back to the Top of the Tower, and runs into Phyllis. They discuss Ashley. Ravi admits he spent the night with her, and they high five, however, Ravi talks about feeling used. Phyllis muses that Ashley’s always the boss woman; he has to make her see him as a desirable man. Ravi phones Ash to ask her to dinner, but ends up agreeing to meet her at the suite later.Victoria-Victor-portrait-YR-CBS Back in Vikki’s office, she tapes a video saying Newman will be donating money to prove they’re against sex trafficking. Lily applauds the effort, then gets notification that Newman will be facing an audit. As Lily makes a call to Devon, Victoria receives a call from Ravi, who accepts her offer. After, Lily asks Victoria if there are any Newman skeletons people might find. Vikki looks at Victor’s portrait.
Noah arrives at GC Buzz, puzzled over Tessa not showing up. They go back on air, and Hilary reminds viewers Devon is her ex-husband, and also dated Mariah. She suggests they compare notes, then gets an update and reports that Tessa was hauled into the police station for questioning. Noah leaves, Mariah calls Hilary a ‘piece of work’, and Devon rants that she’s back in the dirt.
At the station, Noah is outraged at Paul’s actions. He assures Tessa he'll get her a lawyer and thanks her for not throwing his grandfather under the bus.

At the Chancellor Park café, Tessa complains to Nikki that Victor had her arrested.

She calls upstairs to see if they’re decent, but they’re on the living room floor, naked under a blanket. Sharon gasps, “I was just showing Scott where everything is.” Scott heads upstairs, and his phone dings. Mariah reads the text, and Sharon learns it’s about a job interview in New York. Sharon wonders why he hid it. Mariah goes. Scott assures Sharon the job offer meant nothing once she asked him to move in. Sharon apologizes.
At the station, Paul and Chris are frustrated with their lack of progress on linking Newman Enterprises to Zach’s murder. Talk turns to the plans for Chancellor Park, where they got married.

Mariah-dammit-prep-tessa-YR-CBSAt GC Buzz, Hilary gets a call from Devon accepting her offer to put Tessa on the air. She goes to inform Mariah she’ll be prepping Tessa for the interview.

Kevin-confronted-Nikki-YR-CBSNikki drops into the Chancellor mansion to discuss the park situation with Esther, and learns Kevin’s in town. She confronts him about helping Victor hack her phone and email account the same month Nicholas’ bank account was emptied. Nikki knows he was there in September, and it’s not the first time he and Victor have worked on something illegal. Kevin eventually admits that Victor knew he needed money to start over out west, and says he’s a hard man to say ‘no’ to. Nikki warns if he does anything like this again, she’ll go to Paul, and asks what Victor has on him. She figures it must be juicy leverage.
At the penthouse, Nick shows Chelsea his letter to the mayor in support of Chancellor Park. She exclaims in dismay, and Nick ruminates about stopping the developer.
At Newman Enterprises, Abby and Scott watch The Hilary Hour as Tessa is forced to explain Zach was a sex-trafficker who was threatening two people when Crystal stopped him.Scott-Abby-near-kiss-YR-CBS Tessa states she gave Crystal the gun, and it had nothing to do with the Newmans. Hilary notes downloads of Tessa’s song have soared and proceeds are going to charity. Abby turns to Scott and marvels that they’d be dead if Tessa hadn’t given Crystal the gun. Scott feels there were things missing from Tessa’s account. Abby thinks he should let it go, so they bicker. They get in uncomfortably close proximity and Scott backs off. It happens again, and they nearly kiss before Scott leaves.
At GC Buzz, Tessa goes off on Mariah for tipping Hilary off, but learns Devon actually provided the details of her arrest to cover their butts. Mariah walks off in disgust at Tessa’s assumption about her. Elsewhere, Devon admits Hilary was right and knows her audience. Over a champagne toast, Hil suggests their relationship would make a good reality show. Devon’s unconvinced. He thanks her and leaves.

Friday 12/8 "Nick Vows to Fight Victor & Victoria Over Condos in Chancellor Park"
Friday December 8, 2017: Dina surprises Ashley, Sharon has doubts about Scott, and Cane reconnects with Charlie
At the Abbott’s front door, Abby flashes to nearly kissing Scott. Ashley invites her in, and they discuss the ‘meeting’ at Jabot yesterday before talk turns to Newman. Ashley-surprised-Abby-YR-CBAshley refers to Scott as Abby’s ally, but she snaps, “The last thing I want is Scott Grainger in my face.” Ashley’s surprised since they went through so much together. Abby tries not to think about the ordeal or Scott at all. Ashley gets confirmation of Abby’s support at Jabot, then talks about the time when Dina will need full-time care. Abby urges her mother to spend time with Dina while she can. Dina appears. After Abby goes, Ashley’s phone rings constantly as she tries to set plans with her mother. She discards the phone – they’re going to have fun if it kills them.
At Sharon’s place, Scott looks at a framed photo of him and Sharon, but it morphs into him and Abby. Sharon appears and Scott reflects on having a home after so many years overseas. He asks about holiday traditions, and Mariah appears to tease ‘no reindeer sweaters’. Scott sheepishly takes his gift-wrapped packages, but Sharon reassures him. Mariah jokes even when he commits an unforgivable sin, the woman still loves him.
At the penthouse, Nick tells Chelsea he’s discovered the shell company behind the developers that want to put condos in Chancellor Park is Alco. Chelsea questions Nick putting in the time and energy to fight this. He says it’s something he needs to do.
At Crimson Lights patio, Cane texts the twins to join him for hot chocolate. Inside, Nick and Sharon discuss the Chancellor Park issue – it’s a living memory of Katherine. Scott enters and pecks Sharon as Nick sighs. Sharon asks him to find out about Alco, but Scott thinks Nick should be realistic. Nick leaves to fight his ‘hopeless battle’. Cane-Charlie-patio-life-YR-CBSOn the patio, Charlie joins Cane who wants to hear about his life. Charlie opens up and they get to laughing at Charlie’s whipped cream mustache. Talk turn to Mattie be weird with Cane, who acknowledges she hasn’t forgiven him. Inside, Sharon is upset at Scott dismissing her request and Nick’s mission. Scott says Nick’s saving a park, he saved human beings. He’s not going to be more like her ex. After, Mariah arrives and Sharon vents to her about Scott not sharing the same priorities as her and Nick. She regrets moving him in. Mariah tries to convince her not to throw away what they have.
At Newman, Scott grumbles to Abby about her brother Nick being some paragon of virtue, then asks if she’s heard of Alco. She reveals it’s an entity her father created for real estate deals.
Scott returns to Crimson Lights and apologizes to Sharon for being a jerk – he felt jealous of Nick and offers information as a peace offering – Victor owns Alco. Sharon calls Nick with the news, saying it came from a reliable customer. Sharon and Scott kiss and make-up. On the patio, Cane shows Charlie a photo of Sam, who will be home by Christmas. Charlie notes they won’t be together, but he’ll visit on the big day. Cane beams.
Ashley-Dina-skate-YR-CBSAt the Chancellor Park café, Ashley questions Dina choosing to go ice-skating. Dina wanted to recreate taking Ash skating for the first time. Ash marvels that her mother remembers, and she doesn’t. Dina remarks it only happened once, but it was special. Ashley will always remember today. Dina wants to go pole-dancing next. They laugh and clink coffee cups.
Nick arrives at Newman, where Victoria informs him Victor’s away. Nick complains about Alco and gets confrontational. He wonders if she came back to Newman so everyone could see she’s as bad as their father, and launches into a speech about the importance of the park. Victoria argues the development will create jobs, provide housing, and still have a green space honoring Katherine. Nick gets a call that Christian fell at toddler gym and leaves.
Chelsea meets Nick at the hospital and they get the news Christian just has a sprain. Nick says, “We can take our son home.”
At the penthouse, Victoria’s relieved to hear Christian’s okay and argues that Nick’s taking the thing with the park too personally. Nick vows to fight her and their dad on it all the way. After, Nick tells Chelsea she’s the only mother Christian will ever remember, and notes the boys are growing up as brothers. He’ll fight his dad because all kids deserve better.
At Sharon’s house, Mariah walks in on Scott half-dressed telling Sharon she’s insatiable. Sharon enthuses to her daughter that Scott will never let her down or hurt her.
At home, Ashley is stunned to realize that Dina has no recollection of their day spent ice-skating.
Next on The Young and the Restless:
Ravi says, “I’m giving my notice.” Ashley replies, “You’re leaving me?”
Nick says to Devon, “You could use some of the money she left you to purchase the park and leave it as is.”
Nikki informs Victor, “There’s going to be a battle about this, and not only will you lose, you’ll lose big!”
