The Young and the Restless Daily Recap: Nina's on the Warpath and Cane's in the Way!
Adam's Plot Thickens...and gets fingerprints too:
Victor opened up a box in front of Ashley and Nikki and a baby's statue head that was cut off of Sabrina's statue fell out of it. Adam came into the room and Victor asked him if it was his doing. Adam said there was no way he did this and tried to once again put it on Estella. Nikki couldn't believe Adam's gall and called him on it to which Adam tried to defend his accusation. Victor called the police to report what had just happened.
Adam went up to his room and was followed closely by Victor. Victor told him the detective was on his way and Adam said he was glad so he could prove he had nothing to do with it. Adam asked Victor if he couldn't even consider the posibility that he was innocent seeing as he had an ankle monitor. Victor checked to make sure he still had the ankle monitor on. Adam said Victor was reaching seeing as his current condition and that he had little to no visitors who would have helped him. Adam went on to say that when the truth came out he wanted an apology. Victor left without saying a word and Adam brushed it off seemingly unworried or phased.
Nikki brought Ashley some tea and Ashley said ever since she came to that house she'd been haunted by Sabrina's ghost. Nikki said it wasn't a ghost but that's what somebody was wanting her to think. Ashley asked her if she thought it was Adam and Nikki said she absolutely did and as soon as Victor found that out everything would stop. The doorbell rang and it was Estella and Rafe. Estella said she was happy that Ashley wanted to hear her side of the story. She could tell something was wrong and asked what it was. Nikki said there was another incident and Victor pointed the the baby's statue head on the floor. Victor said that he called the police and would like them to stay.
Victor told the detective about what had been happening and showed him the statue head. Adam listened up in his room as the detective said this would lead to some charges for a serious offense and Adam simply said "and so it begins."
The detective got a call and told everyone that the name and address on the return address label were fabricated. Victor asked about prints and the detective told him he couldn't lift one off the statue but he was able to lift one good one off of the box. Victor told the detective he wanted it checked with fingerprints from Rafe and Estella and Adam. Estella asked him why he was going after her nephew and Victor said he could have been an accomplice without them knowing it. Rafe asked him if he was kidding and Nikki agreed saying Rafe and Estella were family. Rafe said that neither he nor Estella would do what they wanted. The detective said that he would have to get a warrant then. Ashley asked them if they were innocent why wouldn't they do this to put an end to the suspicion. Victor said that they either submit to the test or he would urge the DA to make them. Rafe told him to go ahead and he'd fight him every step of the way. Estella said she couldn't take this anymore and asked what she had to do. Nikki asked him not to do this but Victor said it was already done. The detective took them outside to take their prints. Victor came upstairs and told Adam that the detective was there and they found a print. Adam flashed back to getting the box from Estella and told Victor his prints were already in the system. Victor just sat there so Adam asked him if there was something else he wanted to say. Victor noticed that he wasn't even nervous and Adam said he wasn't afraid of the truth.
Rafe told Adam that the idea Victor was doing this to them made him so mad. Adam said he was sorry Rafe got dragged into this. The detective came back in and said that Estella's print was on the box. Estella said it wasn't true and she wanted to see the box. She said she brought a box of Victor's stuff over the other day and said that someone could have used that box against her. Ashley snapped on her and started throwing accusations at her. Estella said it was Ashley who had the problem with her since the day she arrived. Victor told her to stop and said he wanted to press charges. Nikki tried to defend Estella so Victor told Nikki to leave. The detective then arrested Estella as Ashley looked on like a whiny pouty baby and Adam tried to suppress his glee.
Rafe went with Adam up to his room and said he couldn't stay long because he had to meet Estella downtown. Rafe told Adam that he couldn't represent him anymore because he couldn't work for Newman and also defend his Aunt. Adam said he was sorry but he was shocked it all went down like this. But then said that the evidence was pretty overwhelming. Rafe said there were holes in this a mile wide and when he found out who on the ranch was setting her up they would pay.
Ashley told Victor she thought it was over when Estella was fired and Victor told her she didn't have to worry anymore since Estella was behind bars. Ashley said the only thing that mattered now was her baby.
Nikki told Paul that she couldn't believe she tried to help when they did this to Estella. Paul said she cared about Estella but also cared about Victor and Ashley. She decided a change of subject was due and asked Paul what he was up to. He told her he couldn't talk about it but said he knew what he was going to order for dinner.
Nina Goes on the Rampage...and Cane's looking a bit nervous:
Mac arrived at Jimmy's and got a call on her cell. She was hesitating answering it and Cane asked her if she was going to answer it. She said later and asked what the closed sign was about. He told her the electricity was out so she told him to go home and be with his wife and she'd wait for the electrician. He told her it was ok he could stay and she insisted saying she wasn't in a rush to get home to the drama of exhuming Phillip's body. Cane said he could handle it and told her to go and enjoy her night. After she was gone he locked the door and called Phillip to tell him to call so they could figure out what to do.
Katherine told Jill she didn't intend on taking anything from her and said even if they weren't related they could still be friends. Jill wasn't interested and said she wouldn't be calm until her son's body was at rest again and home where he belonged.
Nina was freaking out that Phillip's body wasn't in the coffin and Paul did his best to calm her down.
Katherine hung up the phone and told Jill that Paul called and said that Phillip's body wasn't in the coffin.
Nina said she wanted a thorough investigation and told the man to find her husband's body. She told Paul to get her out of there but before he left he told the mortician that he had a test he needed to be run.
Cane opened up the safe at the bar and pulled out some cash. He flashed back to his wedding to Lily and the vows he made to her. There was a knock on the door and Lily called out to him asking if he was there.
Cane let Lily in and asked what she was doing there. She said she was having a craving for Thai food and left their puppy with the neighbor. She asked him if he was up for dinner and he said he was up for anything as long as she was there. She said that she wasn't going anywhere not now or ever.
Nina told Jill and Katherine she had told them everything she knew. Jill was dumbfounded wanting to know how sandbags ended up in Phillip's casket. Nina said she had her suspicions and Katherine asked her if she thought the doctor who ran the DNA tests was responsible and Paul said it was possible since that doctor had been brought up on charges for other things. Nina said that also meant that it was entirely possible that Cane wasn't a Chancellor. Jill said that didn't prove that Cane wasn't her son either. Paul got a call from the morgue who told him that there was no DNA to test from the casket because there was never a body in it.
Jill asked if that meant that Phillip was never buried and Katherine said that she'd heard of funeral home scams doing this kind of thing. They remembered there was no formal viewing or a private one. Nina said her last memory of him was in a hospital bed and she could barely get over that let alone seeing him in a casket and Jill agreed. Nina said if there was never any body then that meant the test that was run to prove Phillip was not Jill's son never happened so that meant that he still could be. Jill reminded her of the test that they ran on Cane that said he was her son and Nina reminded her that there was another test that said he wasn't. Jill said that she wouldn't allow Nina to put Cane through that again and Nina snapped that she wouldn't allow some con artist to rob her son of his birth right and demanded another test.
Lily and Cane enjoyed dinner together and he said that them being together like this was heaven. She said he better get used to it because he married her for life and he said he was going to hold her to that. His cell phone rang and it was Jill. Lily asked him what that was all about and he said she didn't say but it didn't sound good.
Katherine thanked Paul for being with Nina at the morgue and he said if there was anything else they needed to let him know. After he left Katherine showed how baffled she was. Nina said she knew what was going on she just wished she could have gone with Jill to see the look on Cane's face when he was busted.
Jill told Cane and Lily about what was happening but remained firm that she believed Cane was her son and she was proud of it. She said she hated to do this but Nina wanted another DNA test. Lily asked what was up with her suspicion and told Cane he didn't have to do this. Jill said she didn't like it either but if they just did the test they could get Nina to stop because of the proof that he was her son.
Katherine told Nina that she should prepare herself for the posibility of being wrong and Nina said Katherine should prepare for the opposite. Katherine brought up the memories she had of handing away a baby but Nina reminded her she was in a drunken stupor and suggested the idea that she gave away the baby was put into her head and she ran with it. Katherine asked if Nina really thought Cane had plotted and lied all this time and when Nina nodded she said next thing Nina would be accusing him of being the reason Philip's body was not in that casket. Nina said all Cane had to do was take another test and if he refused she would have her answer.
Jill once again said she was sure he was her son and didn't want to do this. Cane said he would do it and get Nina off their case. Jill was happy and said she couldn't wait to see the look on Nina's face when she was proven wrong and left. Lily said she knew he didn't want to do this but it would prove once and for all who he was. He asked her what if he wasn't who they all thought he was and Lily was confused by this. Cane said that all he knew was what his uncle told him and about the two tests one being positive and one being negative. Lily said it didn't matter to her whether he was a Chancellor or not because he would always be the man she loved. He said they better go get their puppy so Lily left and he told her he'd meet her at home but looked obviously worried.
Katherine told Nina she understood her frustration and anger but Nina snapped that it seemed like Katherine didn't care that Phillip was gone. Katherine said she promised they would get to the bottom of this and Jill came in and told them Cane didn't even flinch about taking another test and she was sure he'd be vindicated again.
Cane went into the freezer and pulled out a vile of blood. He called Phillip once again and left a message saying that once he got this Cane would have done what he needed to do and Phillip could stop running.
Billy and Mac Reminicse...and almost share another kiss:
Billy went to Crimson Lights and bribed the waitress to keep the patio closed for a private party after he saw Mac out there. He joked to Mac that she did have her phone even though she wasn't answering it. She said she thought it would be better if they didn't speak. Billy said that was funny since six years ago they had plenty to say to each other including "I do." He asked her to pretend the past six years hadn't happened and try to sit down and have a few laughs like they used to. She told him to have a seat and sat down across from him.
Mac told Billy to admit that he loved being Mr. Popularity back then and he glibbly brushed it off as no big deal. She told him he was pretty hot back then and he asked smugly as opposed to what now. She said he was still hot and he said he was surprised she noticed with all her efforts to be the prize student. She said it didn't matter that she wasn't a party girl. Billy said she was a party girl she just didn't want to admit it, until the night she won prom queen because she was all over that. She said she only got it because it was an anti-Brittany Hodges vote. He said it didn't matter because it was one of the best nights ever due to the fact it was the first time he got to dance with her. She said she was embarassed dancing in front of all those people and Billy went to put some money in the juke box to embarass her some more.
Mac and Billy danced ridiculously and Mac begged to stop the humiliation. He asked her if they could slow it down a bit and asked her if that was better. She said much but then stepped on his toes. He pulled her back into dancing and said it felt like they were back on the dance floor. They almost kissed before she told him they couldn't go back and he said he knew and he should probably go. He thanked her for the dance and she said she'd see him around before he left.
