The Young and the Restless recap for Tuesday, April 23, brings Victor back to Genoa City with an unlikely explanation for his lies. Plus, Kyle tells Summer he wants a divorce, and Devon returns to Society with tragic news for Lily about Neil’s death.
Traci (Beth Maitland) arrived at Society and talked to Devon (Bryton James) about how great everything is, and he gave Abby (Melissa Ordway) all of the credit. Then, they discussed Jack (Peter Bergman) and Ashley’s (Eileen Davidson) dueling campaigns. Then, Cane (Daniel Goddard) and Lily (Christel Khalil) arrived together. Devon was surprised, but Lily told her brother that Cane came along to keep people from focusing on their divorce. After Lily and Devon left to talk with Ana (Loren Lott) and Jett (Gilbert Glenn Brown), Traci and Cane discussed Cane quitting his job. Traci said that she doesn’t think that Cane and Lily’s story is finished. Later — when Cane and Lily danced — he asked her for another chance.
When Devon asked Lily about Neil (Kristoff St. John), she said he went to take a shower — and figured he went to sleep. Devon decided to go check on their dad after he and Lily briefly discussed Elena (Brytni Sarpy). Elsewhere, Lola (Sasha Calle) and Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) discussed Kyle (Michael Mealor) breaking things off with Summer (Hunter King).
At the Abbott mansion, Summer complained to Kyle about Nick (Joshua Morrow) butting in, but Kyle told Summer that Nick caught him kissing Lola. Summer told Kyle he had to stop. The Inquisitr reported that Kyle asked Summer for a divorce, or an annulment, after she told him how he broke her heart by giving the necklace to Lola. He walked out, and Summer threw something.
Meanwhile, Billy (Jason Thompson) admired Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) dress for the club opening. He wanted to go upstairs, but Victoria insisted they go support Abby (Melissa Ordway). Victor (Eric Braeden) showed up, and told Victoria that he was in Vegas for business. He wanted to land a hotel conglomerate. Victoria wasn’t convinced, but she told her father to be careful. Billy also felt Victor had lied about his dealings in Sin City.
Finally, Devon called out for Neil at his penthouse. Later, he came down the stairs, crying. When he returned to Society, Devon went to Lily and told her that Neil had died. Lily doubled over in grief as Cane and Devon supported her. Charlie (Noah Alexander Gerry), Mattie (Lexie Stevenson), and Nate (Sean Dominic) also found out. Traci overheard, and told Abby.
