The Young And The Restless 10-01-21 Recap,
Nick wanted to talk to Ashland in private, but Victoria wanted to hear what he had to say. Ashland wanted her to stay. Victoria said she knew he went to New Jersey thanks to Phyllis. Nick gave Ashland another chance to change his mind about Victoria hearing what he had to say. Victoria yelled at him about hearing what he had to say. Nick told them about a car crash that happened 40 years ago that involved someone named Bobby DeFranco.
Sharon went to see Mariah to check on her. She said she felt better once she got out of that house. Sharon wanted to know why she left. Mariah said being there with Abby and Dominic was hard. She couldn’t be near Dominic all of the time after what happened. She knew he wasn’t hers, but she bonded with it. She remembered Sharon warning her about how hard it would be to give up the baby. Sharon wanted to know what she could do to help her. Sharon wanted her to move in with her, but Mariah reminded her about the space. She offered to refer some therapists to her.
Sharon advised Mariah not to jump into anything right now. She wanted to know what Tessa told her. Sharon told her that Tessa told her how she wanted a baby. Mariah was upset and realized that Tessa didn’t want one. She said it wasn’t an impulse decision. She wanted to have a baby with the woman she loves.
Ashland said Bobby’s name is one he never wanted to hear again. He said his name is Bobby DeFranco. He changed his name to Ashland. Victoria wasn’t happy about Nick snooping. She said they knew he changed his name. Nick told her that someone died, but Ashland only told her about his abusive background. Nick told him about the guy who Ashland met when he was younger. He said Ashland and his friend planned on making it big together. He said he got an interview with Camila Rhodes. He said his friend couldn’t make it to the interview.
Ashland talked about getting in a car accident with his friend. He told Victoria how he tried to get his friend out of the car, but ot caught on fire. He managed to get his friend Ashland out of the car when his wallet fell out. He picked up Ashland’s wallet and dropped his. He panicked when someone showed up to help him and Ashland. He thought the police would take him back to his father’s place. He decided to become Ashland Locke and left his friend to die in the flames. Victoria wanted to know what happened to him. He said he hid until his father identified his body. His father recognized the tattoos that and thought it was him. He said it was a chance at a new start. He said he went to the interview and the rest was history.
Nick questioned why he swapped the wallets. Ashland said his survival instinct took over. Nick wanted to know why he didn’t help his friend. Ashland said he thought he was dead. He thought about his decision every day of his life. He was upset because his friend saved his life from his father, but he couldn’t save him. Ashland wanted to know how much he knew. Nick told him that a reporter knew there was more to his story since someone pulled up and saw a young man run in the woods. Ashland was ashamed that he didn’t tell Victoria sooner. Victoria was upset at Nick for what he found out.
Victoria stormed off. Ashland hoped Nick got what he wanted. Nick wanted the truth which was more than what he gave Victoria. Nick didn’t like how he watched his best friend die and he took over his life. He said he had to make some hard decisions and that was something he would never understand. He walked away from him. Ashland caught up with Victoria. She wanted to know why he didn’t tell her. He was ashamed of what he did. He said he was haunted by what he did all of the time. He questioned what would have happened if he stayed. He wondered how his life would be if he got his friend help. He wondered if his friend would have done the same thing if the situation were reversed. He said he never loved anyone the way he loved her. He understood if she wanted to break up. She needed time to think about everything.
Nick met up with Victoria at Newman Enterprises. She was upset with him for exposing Ashland. She reminded him that she begged him to leave the situation alone, but he wouldn’t do it. He told her that she said she was concerned about Ashland. He didn’t regret making Ashland tell the truth. He wondered what else he did. She told him that he’s a successful business man so he did do things. Nick didn’t like how he left his friend in a car. She wondered what Nock would have done if he were Ashland. She told him that he had advantages that Ashland didn’t have. She didn’t understand why something that was 40 years ago meant he wasn’t worthy of being loved. Nick thought they had different opinions on what’s right and wrong. She told him that he betrayed her. She told him that she didn’t want him at her wedding.
