The Young and the Restless
What happened during the week of August 6, 2012
Tucker tried to help Sharon when Victor disappeared on their wedding night. A drunken Sharon went to Nikki's wedding, looking for Victor, and Nikki pushed her into the pool. Billy's first episode of Restless Style was a success, even though Victoria objected to his using family information as gossip. Phyllis freaked out when Billy suggested on the Restless Style television show that he had bombshell information about her case. Chelsea told Victoria that she and Adam were trying to get pregnant. Adam and Kevin hustled to launch the TagNGrab website before the competition. Phyllis refused to sleep with Tim, but agreed to pay him blackmail in exchange for the confession tape. Nick was incensed when he caught Phyllis paying off Tim after wiping out Summer's trust fund to get the money. Avery was disgusted with Phyllis' lies and quit her case to handle Paul's defense. Sharon had a hangover and apologized to Tucker but was still miffed that Victor was gone. Jack promoted Cane at Jabot. Nick warned Sharon to get her head on straight for Faith's sake. Nikki was not pleased with Sharon's efforts to find Victor, so she took over. Kay warned Nikki to attend to her marriage to Jack. Harmony and Neil had their first official date. Avery went to the Newman ranch to collect Victor's legal work, but Sharon denied that she'd signed a pre-nup. Later, Nikki found Victor's phone on the ranch and used it to send a fake text message to Sharon, saying -- as Victor -- that the marriage was over. Sharon was furious about the message, thinking Victor had dumped her. Sharon discovered the pre-nup in Victor's briefcase and realized that she'd get nothing from their brief marriage. Sharon burned the pre-nup, nearly getting caught by Nikki. Eden agreed to try hypnosis to remember the night of Ricky's death. Eden became extremely frightened. Despite Kyle's protesting, Eden continued but could only recall intense fear of Ricky. Eden hoped her words would be enough to help Paul, but Christine had doubts. Christine said goodbye to Paul before returning to D.C., confident that he'd be a free man soon with Avery handling his defense. While his family was in the dark about his whereabouts, Victor stood alone at an industrial loading dock and contemplated what to do.
