The Young and the Restless spoilers for next week’s episodes of the hit CBS soap opera tease things heat up in Genoa City as February sweeps begin.
It’s been more of the same with the daytime drama since the holiday season.
However, with sweeps months kicking off next week, there will be a shift in a few storylines.
Kyle (Michael Mealor) takes a break from worrying about his mom Diane (Susan Walters), to take on a new project.
However, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) is determined to prove Diane stole her necklace, not Jeremy (James Hyde), and she goes to great lengths to prove her theory.
The Diane drama may take a backseat for a minute, but there’s plenty to keep Y&R fans entertained next week.

Much to the dismay of Summer (Allison Lanier), Kyle joins forces with Victor (Eric Braeden) to get Adam (Mark Grossman) out of Jabot. Kyle ups the ante, though, when he reveals to Victor he’s found the perfect plan for their mission.
Too bad Adam figures out what they are up to and exposes them to Jack (Peter Bergman). While Victor’s forced to figure out his next move, Kyle gets an earful from his father. Jack is not thrilled with Kyle for plotting with Victor, of all people.
