It's Thanksgiving on The Young and the Restless
today. Nikki (Melody Scott Thomas) has brought over all the holiday decorations that Victoria (Amelia Heinle
) has ever made over to the hospital.
Lily (Christel Khalil
) has been up since 4am working hard on her mother's recipes, but she is so disappointed in how they turned out. Devon (Bryton
McClure) tries to calm her down, but she wants to cancel the whole event.
Lauren (Tracey Bregman) is sipping champagne instead of working crazily in the turkey. She decided to have a stress-free holiday by ordering takeout from the GCAC. She slips off her robe to reveal a black lace bra and a smokin' hot bod, which makes Michael (Christian LeBlanc
) feel frisky.
Neil (Kristoff St. John
) and Karen (Nia Peeples) are at the coffeehouse. Devon calls Neil to tell him that Lily wants to cancel dinner and eat at the club instead, and has run off somewhere. Devon thinks it's because LIly is upset about her mother's death.
Phyllis (Michelle Stafford
) has brought Summer over to the hospital where Nick (Joshua Morrow
) is snoozing out in the waiting room. JT (Thad Luckinbill
) and Brad (Don Diamont
) join them. Brad is certainly not happy to see Phyllis out of the slammer.
Amber (Adrienne Frantz
) perkily walks over to Cane (Daniel Goddard
) at the coffeehouse. Lily calls Cane to tell him that she's not feeling well and is going to skip out on dinner. Amber capitalizes on the opportunity to ask Cane to have dinner with her instead. Let's take a moment to appreciate how awesome Adrienne Frantz's hair looks right now. She has super-fine blonde hair, but somehow, her ponytail is still full of body and softly curling. I wish I could make my hair look like that.
Neil goes to the GCAC to order takeout to salvage his meal. Lily is also there and tells her father that she can't handle Thanksgiving this year. Karen offers to talk to her. Then Michael and Lauren go over to get their takeout order as well.
Jana (Emily O'Brien) is on the phone with Kevin (Greg Rikaart
). Jana is very depressed and can't take Kevin's joking, so she hangs up on him.
Nikki and Phyllis bicker at the hospital and Nick asks them to please stop.
Karen gives Lily a pep talk about the tradition of Thanksgiving and coping with life after her mother's death.
Kevin catches Lauren and Michael making takeout food look homemade, but promises to keep their secret. He announces that he's going to propose to Jana. Kevin asks Michael to be his best man, and Michael grimaces his congratulations. Kevin cheekily asks them to tell Gloria (Judith Chapman
) for him.
Nick talks to Victoria. He tells her that he loves her, and it's very sad.
Lily calls Cane and asks for a do-over and asks him to dinner again. He accepts, which means that he'll have to get out of dinner with Amber. At the Winters residence, Sharon (Sharon Case
), Jack (Peter Bergman
) and Noah have arrived.
Brad asks JT if he can have a moment alone with Victoria. He tells her that even though their marriage failed, he is grateful for their time together.
Michael, Lauren and Kevin are in mid-bicker when Gloria and Jeffrey (Ted Shackelford) arrive home. There are only four place settings, so Michael tells her that Kevin is having dinner at Jana. Speaking of Kevin and Jana, Kevin has arrived at prison bearing pie for Jana.
At the Winters residence, Neil has just finished saying grace, and asks everyone to say what they are all grateful for. Sharon is wearing the most hideous floral dress, but she makes up for it by making a heartfelt speech.
Gloria guesses that Lauren might be pregnant, but she's not, so Michael finally spills that Kevin is proposing to Jana. Gloria is unhappy about this and immediately gets on the phone to tell Kevin not to. In prison, Kevin gets down on one knee and asks Jana to marry him, but he doesn't want an answer right now. He knows that she'll say no (which she immediately does), so he wants her to think about it, and then to say yes.
Amber is alone at the coffeehouse. Daniel (Michael Graziadei
) comes over to have dinner with her, prompting Amber to realize that he really is her best friend ever.
The Young and the Restless
ends today with all of Victoria's loved ones assembled in her hospital room, saying silent prayers for her health.
The Young and the Restless
will air a special recap of the Clear Springs disaster on Friday. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
