“The Young and the Restless” spoilers for April 1, 2015 allow fans of the CBS soap to learn more about the mysteries and subterfuge holding Genoa City residents in their thrall. Nikki tries to thwart Victor’s nefarious plot but Paul and Kristine’s tragedy stands in the way. Billy shocks Chelsea by admitting that his desire for Victoria is alive and well, meanwhile, Abby is sent on a mission with Stitch but we have a hunch that hooking-up will make it onto their agenda. The most important revelation on the April Fools’ Day episode is Kevin’s discovery that Austin was carrying out video surveillance of Jack-and just when he and Courtney are about to access the critical footage through the GC police department computer system they are discovered by Paul!
On April 1 episode of Y & R the episode opens with Jack [Peter Bergman] finding out Jabot had been breached. Ashley [Eileen Davidson] tells him security is on it. Jack suspects Victor has his hands in this!
Chelsea [Melissa Claire Egan] asks Victoria [Amelia Heinle] if she really has no clue who hacked Jabot. Chelsea wants to know what Billy [Burgess Jenkins] and Victoria were talking about other than that… she feels she is missing something.
Nikki [Melody Thomas Scott] has the fingerprints and wonders whose they are and what Victor [Eric Braeden] is up too?
Gabe/Adam [Justin Hartley] tells Victor he does not belong in Jack’s chair and they are not interested in his offer for Jabot. Victor tells Gabe/Adam it is Jack’s decision and asks who is Gabe/Adam. Gabe/Adam tells Victor he knows Victor better than he thinks.
Summer [Hunter King] tells Kyle [Lachlan Buchanan] she does look at him as a brother. Noah [Robert Adamson] and Courtney [Kelly Gross] show up to give the Scooby Doo gang their big news.
Kevin [Greg Rikarart] comes in and tells the gang he is genius but Noah says he has bigger news he and Courtney are engaged.
Stitch [Sean Carrigan] shows up and Abby [Melissa Ordway] hugs him, she is glad he is back.. Abby fills him in on everyone who showed up while he was away. Stitch tells Abby he is leaving town to collect Kelly’s [Cady McClain] ashes and Abby informs Stitch she is going with him.
Billy is explaining himself to Chelsea and he is taking jabs at her and Gabe/Adam running out of gas. He explains he comforted Victoria like Gabe/Adam comforted her.
Summer hugs Noah and tells him how excited she is for him and Courtney being engaged. The rest of the gang is happy too.
Kevin tells them his big news he found new video on Austin’s computer and it was not an interview it was a surveillance video. Austin was following Jack [Peter Bergman] and Jack did not know it! But the video is really damaged so he could not see much. But because the video was taken in the park there is probably a surveillance camera at the park with the video. Problem is they have to get the video from the police computers.
Jack thinks Victor is acting weird: first he stole the recipe for Hex and then he pulled it off the market and then he offered to buy Jabot. Ashley tells Jack she will be fighting Victor with Jack.
Ashley gets a call informing him Victor is at Jabot. Jack says if Victor is there he wants to be seen. Victor wonders what Jack doesn’t want them to know.
Paul is remembering telling Victor off for driving Nikki to the bottle.. and about the accident etc. Nikki shows up.
Nikki is there as a friend for his help. Paul [Doug Davidson] tells Nikki that Christine cannot have any more children. Nikki is upset and apologizes.
Nikki tells Paul she feels foolish coming to him considering everything. Paul then says whatever she has to tell him it is NO!
Victor is still sitting at Jack’s desk and tells Gabe/Adam to get out. Gabe/Adam is shocked and tells him Jack is not selling Jabot…. Gabe/Adam says, “NOT everyone has a price didn’t he learn that from your son?” Victor replies, “You knew my son, who the hell are you?”
Nikki tries to hand Paul the envelope with the fingerprints in it but Paul says, “NO, no more going behind my wife’s back.” Nikki keeps trying to convince him but Paul tells her he is not getting involved and she should file it through proper channels.
Kevin is at the police station and is trying to hack into the system to see the surveillance video at the park where Austin was filming Jack. Courtney is rushing him but an alarm goes off on the computer.
Stitch tells Abby he will only be gone a day and the security will keep her safe. Abby wants to be Stitch’s moral support. Abby feels he is shutting Victoria out. Stitch thinks the time apart from Victoria will be good for them.
Chelsea does not feel Billy interrogated Victoria enough about the hacking. Billy assures her he is not trying to get back with Victoria. Billy wishes she would give him the same benefit of the doubt he gives her with Gabe/Adam.
Billy and Chelsea keep going back and forth about Victoria and Gabe and Billy says he is not hung up on his ex like Chelsea. Chelsea says Adam is dead and Billy says, “Well you would never know it.”
Gabe/Adam explains to Victor he is a friend of Nicks from Boarding School. Victor tells Gabe/Adam he could teach him a few things but Gabe/Adam says he could teach him nothing. Jack walks in and tells Gabe/Adam Victor could teach him how to sneak in to a competitors’ office and steal their business. Victor smiles and says, “Hello Jack”!
Victor explains he did not break in. Ashley accuses him of hacking into their mainframe. Victor then says, “I came in to tell you that both our companies servers have been breached.” Gabe/Adam does not buy it. Victor wants to join forces with Jack to combat who is doing the hacking. Ashley offers to escort Victor out of the building. They leave…
Jack is pissed off and tells Adam he learned nothing from dying.
Kevin is trying to turn the alarm off on the computer at the police station and Paul walks in, he asks what Kevin and Courtney are doing. Kevin makes up a story about doing personal work. Paul is not pleased and tells Kevin he better give him a good explanation – Kevin cannot so Paul suspends him.
Noah hates waiting for Kevin and Courtney. Summer does not think whatever they find will be important important. Mariah [Camryn Grimes] thinks that Kyle is still a suspect because he wrote the message on Sharon’s mirror. Summer freaks and Mariah tells her, “Austin was leading a double life so could Kyle have been”!
Abby leaves Stitch and Victoria alone. They apologize to each other. Stitch tells her he is going to get Kelly’s ashes alone.
Kevin tells the Scooby Doo gang he hit a glitch getting the park surveillance coverage and hit an alarm and Paul suspended him. Since Courtney is the only person who may be able to get the video now, Noah tells Courtney she is not to try to get the info on the computer.
Chelsea and Billy are still arguing and Billy tells Chelsea that Adam did not deserve her love. Then Billy says, “fine you want me to be honest okay. Victoria wanted me to kiss her and I wanted to kiss her back.”!!
Jack is still telling Gabe/Adam off saying that he lied for Gabe/Adam and what has he learned Gabe/Adam was practically challenging Victor to a duel. Gabe/Adam apologizes. Jack tells Gabe/Adam he is trying to out think Victor!
Victor gets home and he tells Nikki he is sorry he is late; his business ran longer than he expected. Nikki tells Victor, “I am sure it did after confessing your sins. Imagine my surprise finding you in a chapel and after you left FINDING THIS?”
Nikki tells Victor she was talking to Victoria and they are both concerned what he will do to get Jabot so Nikki asks Victor what the fingerprints on the paper will do to bring Jack down?
Stitch tells Victoria he has to go alone to get Kelly’s ashes. Victoria tells him he should take Abby with him.
Billy clarifies to Chelsea that he was tempted to kiss Victoria but did not because he loves Chelsea. Then he leans over and kisses Chelsea.
Jack calls Billy and tells him to come to the office and bring Chelsea they are going to have a war counsel.
Victor tells Nikki she sees him as a villain but he is under attack. He explains to Nikki someone broke into the Newman computer system and left those fingerprints. Nikki says, “I have heard of a cyber trail but never cyber fingerprints.”
Victor claims they lifted the fingerprints off a server bank and he took them to the church to leave for his PI. Nikki asks why the secrecy and Victor asks, “What did Paul say when you took the fingerprints to him behind my back? “
Summer comes into the coffee shop where Kyle is sitting. Summer tells Kyle she knows he could not hurt a fly and Jack made him the man he is today. Kyle leans over and kisses Summer and she does not stop him. Austin who?
At Crimson Lights Kyle and Summer are still kissing up a storm. Finally Summer asks what he is doing. (took long enough) Kyle tells her she is all he ever thought about in NY. All he ever wanted was to be with her and he needs her in his life. Summer says she knows she can trust him. They hold hands and he kisses her hand.
Noah explains to the gang Courtney’s job is to serve and protect. The Scooby Doo gang tries to convince Noah to let Courtney try to get the video on the police computer.
Jack is pissed he was the last to know about Jabot being hacked. Everyone is arguing and accusing each other. Jack tells them they have to stop fighting and face Newman head on.
Victor tells Nikki he is waiting for her to tell him he is wrong that she did not go to Paul. Victor asks if Paul told her to get lost? Victor insists the fingerprints Nikki found are not about bringing Jack down they are about saving his company. Nikki hands the envelope with the fingerprints over to Victor gets up and says, “Okay then” and leaves.
Victor takes his phone and calls someone and says, “Listen next time get your ass in that church in time. You got it? My wife got there first she got all those prints. We need to agree on a different meeting place. Just remember that these fingerprints are VITAL for the next phase of our plan. You got it?”
That is it SOSers, another episode of Y & R. I was really surprised that Nikki confronted Victor but was upset that she let Victor off the hook so easily. When Billy told Chelsea that he wanted to kiss Victoria and then kissed Chelsea I would have hit him right then and there, how about you? What do you think Austin was following Jack for? Were you surprised that Summer so quickly forgot her husband and was kissing Kyle?
