Life in Genoa City has revolved around taking down Ashland (Robert Newman), which won’t change next week. The story remains front and center, as does the Diane (Susan Walters) isn’t dead storyline.
Y&R viewers can expect those two hot button stories to be the focus of the week.
The news Diane is alive spreads

Phyllis digs to find out where Diane has been all these years. The fiery redhead wastes no time challenging Diane’s agenda, pitting these two enemies against each other once again.
As news Diane is alive spreads, Ashley (Eileen Davidson) worries about the Abbott family bond. Ashley expresses concern over the drama that’s brewing for her loved ones.
Victor, Ashland, and Victoria won’t back down
The Newman family remains focused on taking down Ashland (Robert Newman) and protecting Victoria (Amelia Heinle). Victor puts a wrench in Ashland’s master escape plan to run away to Tuscany.
Meanwhile, Nick (Joshua Morrow) comes up with his own plan to help Victoria. However, the latter isn’t keen on taking help from anyone in her family. Victoria’s determined to take care of Ashland all by herself and will play hardball before the week is over.
As their children are scheming, Victor makes a significant promise to Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) for the sake of their family.
Communication is key
In true Adam (Mark Grossman) fashion, he plots to use Victoria’s current predicament to his advantage. With a little help from Sally (Courtney Hope), he puts a scheme in motion, but they immediately face an obstacle — Victor.

Plus, Chance (Conner Floyd) confides in Abby (Melissa Ordway), while Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) continues to grow closer to Rey (Jordi Vilasuso).
News Jordi’s leaving the Y&R means the latest object of Chelsea’s affection won’t be around much longer. Who do you think Chelsea should be paired with after Rey exits the daytime drama?
