The Young and the Restless recap for Wednesday, January 15 shows Sharon (Sharon Case) telling Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) about her breast cancer, while Faith (Alyvia Alyn Lind) snoops and accidentally finds out her mother is ill. Plus, Lola (Sasha Calle) gets jealous of a woman with Theo (Tyler Johnson) and Connor (Judah Mackey) returns to The Grand Phoenix Hotel.
At Sharon’s house, she told Rey that she has breast cancer. Rey instantly understood Sharon’s recent distraction and he asked to go with her to the next doctor’s appointment. Sharon teared up when she talked about her chances for survival and Rey hugged her. Sharon insisted that she didn’t want to tell everybody about her diagnosis yet.
Later, Faith got home and asked if something was wrong. Rey told her he had a tough case, then left the room, so Faith asked Sharon. However, Sharon said she was fine and went with Rey to get takeout. After everybody left, Faith snooped around and found details about Sharon’s doctor. In a panic, Faith called Nick (Joshua Morrow) and asked him to meet her at the Ranch. When Nick arrived, Faith revealed what she had found. They worried that Sharon had breast cancer.
Earlier at Crimson Lights, Nick questioned Chance (Donny Boaz) about his time with Adam (Mark Grossman) in Las Vegas. Chance played it off that they were in the same place at the same time and Adam was Spyder then. Then Nick mentioned his concern about Abby (Melissa Ordway). Chance promised not to hurt Nick’s sister. After that, Nick asked Chance to provide security for New Hope, to which Chance agreed.
At The Grand Phoenix, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) wondered if Abby was upset that Chelsea is back together with Adam. Abby told Chelsea to pick one brother and stick with her choice. Chelsea regretted that her happiness with Adam came at Nick’s expense. Then, she revealed that Connor was coming to see the hotel and realize that it’s safe there. Adam and Connor showed up and they explained to the little boy that the bad man who held them hostage is in jail.
Just then, Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) arrived. Abby explained the situation and they both agreed that they hoped Connor would be okay. Of course, that’s the only thing they all agree about. Then Chance came in and he told Connor how brave he’d been. Chance also reassured the little boy that he’d been scared too, and Chance mentioned that he lives at the hotel and everything is safe. Connor decided he was okay with Chelsea working there after his visit. Phyllis chatted with Chance and offered him some work. When Abby came up, Phyllis told Chance she’d see him later.
Finally, at Society, Summer (Hunter King) and Kyle (Michael Mealor) planned a work trip to San Francisco. Theo walked in with a woman. Lola noticed and got jealous, thinking Theo was on a date. Kyle noticed and asked Lola if she’d been jealous and Lola denied it. The woman turned out to be a social media influencer. Later Kyle and Lola argued in the kitchen at the restaurant about Lola always giving Theo a pass.
