Young and the Restless spoilers’ review for Monday, April 20th, teases that Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) will wake up together in Kyle’s suite. They will discuss how today is the big “pitch day” at Jabot, during which Kyle Abbott and Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson) will present their ideas for the Jabot rebranding. Kyle and Summer will wonder if Theo Vanderway took the bait and swiped the presentation they put on the server.
Meanwhile, at Jabot, Theo Vanderway will disconnect from a phone call with Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle), then greet Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) as he enters the meeting room. Theo will ask if Jack has any advice to give him, and Jack will tell him to be himself and it will be fine.
Later, Kyle and Summer will come in, and Kyle Abbott and Theo will swap beards. Summer’s gonna ask the men to shake his hand, which they will when Jack walks in.
Theo will complain that Summer will stay for the pitches, but Kyle Abbott will say that he was free to use all available resources at his disposal… just like Theo was free to use the employees as help. Theo Vanderway will take note of this comment, then begin his presentation, which will be for a concept called “Jabot Back 2 Basics”.
Afterwards, Jack will ask Theo to explain where this concept comes from, and Theo will come up with something. Jack will call Theo Vanderway, saying that the launch is actually one of his from 15 years ago, and that Theo gave it almost word for word. Jack will blow Theo up, wondering if Theo thought he wouldn’t notice.
At this point, Theo’s gonna go, “Kyle Abbott and Summer set me up! Jack will ask for answers, and Kyle and Summer will explain how they took the bait and Theo took the bait willingly. Theo Vanderway will then dig his hole deeper and say that everyone in the Abbott family has done something shady.
Jack will be outraged, and Theo will insist he deserves a second chance. Jack will leave the decision to Kyle, and Kyle will fire Theo Vanderway on the spot immediately.
Theo will joke, thinking Kyle’s joking, but Kyle Abbott will threaten to call security, so Theo will leave voluntarily. After that, Kyle will give his speech, and Jack will love it. Kyle and Summer will celebrate with champagne, while Kyle will comment that Theo Vanderway got what he deserved.
Theo will head to the Abbott estate, where he will visit him with Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams), telling her that he was an idiot, and that he would have wanted her to meet him back in New York. Theo Vanderway will sadly tell Dina that maybe he just got kicked out of a job and a family.
Meanwhile, in the new episode of Y&R on Monday, April 20, Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan) will appear at the New Hope Clinic to see Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic).
Amanda and Nate will flirt when Elena Dawson (Brytni Sarpy) arrives and says she has an emergency coming up. Amanda will leave, and later she and Nate will meet at the Grand Phoenix for a drink before lunch.
Amanda and Nate will continue to enjoy each other’s company, and Amanda will notice that someone who likes to live on the sidelines has recently taught her something about enjoying life. Amanda will notice that the message was lost on her at the time, but now that her life is truly hers again, she will take over everything.
Amanda and Nate will head to the Society for lunch, where they will meet Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) and Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) at a table. Lily will call them and Nate will hear about Amanda’s very generous offer from Chancellor Communications.
Billy Abbott and Amanda will look at each other happily but uncomfortably, and Lily will leave with Nate to chat. Billy will be in charge of getting Amanda to take the job offer. Amanda will sit with Billy while Nate is out with Lily, and Billy and Amanda will enjoy their comfortable relationship.
Billy will give a great speech, and Amanda will agree, provided Chancellor Communications meets a few other demands. Billy Abbott and Amanda will smile happily.
Later, Billy Abbott and Amanda will join Lily and Nate, and Amanda will tell Lily she’ll take the job. Lily will be ecstatic and welcome Amanda on board, and Billy and Amanda will smile again. Later, while Amanda is having dinner at a table with Nate, she will take a look at Billy and the two will exchange a look.
It seems pretty clear that Amanda and Billy Abbott are not completely beyond their mutual attraction. Although Amanda and Billy have decided to be just coffee buddies and now work partners, it seems that there is still a persistent attraction. We’ll see how it turns out when Billy and Amanda start working together at Chancellor Communications.
