What happened the week of August 1, 2022

Finn and Steffy reunited, Sheila showed up on Deacon's doorstep, and a family photo led Ridge to kiss Taylor

B&B Logo

Finn found Steffy outside a church in Monaco. Steffy was overjoyed that Finn was alive, but despite her happiness, she was still jarred by what had happened to them. Finn admitted that it had been a harrowing ordeal for him, as well, but he'd survived it because of his family. Hope posted a photo on social media of herself with Deacon and Brooke. When Ridge saw it, he became disillusioned that Brooke hadn't stayed away from Deacon. Ridge kissed Taylor, but when she asked why he'd done it, he asked how he could "not" have done it. Brooke admonished Deacon not to show up at her house again. Back from Monaco, Steffy and Finn had a private homecoming at the cliff house. To Brooke's surprise, Ridge showed up at her house with Taylor, and to Taylor's surprise, Ridge kissed Brooke in front of Taylor.

The Young and the Restless

What happened the week of August 1, 2022

Chance and Kevin became increasingly suspicious that there was more to Ashland's death than the car accident.

Y&R Logo

Kevin sidled up to the medical examiner and learned that the car crash hadn't necessarily caused the blow to the head that had killed Ashland. Chance and Kevin later realized that the video footage from the gas station where Ashland's rental car had been spotted had been erased. Chloe told Sally about how Nick had punched Ashland. Nick trusted Sally to treat the story about Ashland's death as she saw fit, and she decided to wait to publish anything about Nick's involvement until she knew more. Nick sensed that Victor was lying about what had happened at Victoria's house on the night of Ashland's death. Victor admitted that his security team had found Ashland dead inside the house, and he'd had them stage the car accident to protect Nick from being investigated. Nick confided in Sharon about how he'd been responsible for Ashland's death. Victor turned down Noah's pitch to turn Top of the Tower into a nightclub. The rift between Jack and Phyllis widened when he walked in on her berating Diane in the park with Harrison nearby. Phyllis pushed Summer to give her a job at Marchetti. Devon and Nate continued to have issues working together. Nate was irritated when Elena blamed Imani for fueling the tension between Devon and Nate. Amanda was devastated when Naya lapsed into a coma. Devon encouraged Amanda to be by Naya's side. Tessa faced putting her career on hold while recovering from surgery on her vocal cords.
