“The Young and the Restless” spoilers for Thursday, December 17, tease that we’ll see a couple of new opportunities along with some harsh truths. At Crimson Lights, Billy (Burgess Jenkins) tells Kevin (Greg Rikaart) he wants to be a part of his plan to create hack-proof computers. If Kevin doesn’t let Billy come on board, he could tell Victor (Eric Braeden) about Kevin’s involvement in bringing back Paragon. Kevin insists that he doesn’t want Billy as an investor. He thinks Billy needs to get his life together.
At the athletic club, Luca (Miles Gaston Villanueva) has a proposition for Marisa (Sofia Pernas). He wants her to come work for him. Victor can provide the office space. Marisa isn’t sure since Victor seems to hate her so much. Luca thinks it’ll be fine and they’ll make a good team. Besides, Luca needs someone he can trust at Newman Enterprises.
Mariah (Camryn Grimes) comes in The Underground and finds Noah (Robert Adamson) asleep in a booth. Noah wakes up and admits that Luca knows he called the feds. Victor and Marisa know, too. Noah is upset because Marisa is ignoring his texts. An FBI agent arrives and Noah informs him that the info turned out to be based on rumors. The agent replies that they’ve been keeping a close eye on the Santori family. He asks Noah to give him updates if he hears anything else.
Marisa shows up and starts to argue with Noah about his recent actions. Noah feels Marisa shouldn’t trust Luca after all the lies he’s told. Marisa snaps back that Noah is the one she can’t trust. Noah has been acting like Victor. Marisa declares that they’re over and storms out.
At Newman Enterprises, Victor suggests that Adam (Justin Hartley) did the right thing by agreeing to work at the company. Adam wouldn’t want Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) to hear any dirty little secrets. Victor is proud of Adam for his role in gaining control over the Abbotts. Adam thinks it was good that Victor took his advice. Adam adds that he’s worried about Victor being in business with the Santori family. They’re bad news and Victor needs to get out of their deal. Victor agrees to pay them off and be done with it. Later, Luca comes to request office space. He announces that Marisa will be his assistant.
Victor tries to give Luca a check for what the Santoris are owed plus interest. Luca insists that it doesn’t work like that. Once his family has invested money, they own part of the company. Luca returns the check to Victor and departs. Victor calls Luca’s father, but he doesn’t make any progress. It appears Victor may be stuck in this partnership for a while.
Noah comes to see Victor and says he didn’t spill anything to the FBI. Adam tells Noah that Newman Enterprises is trying to get out of business with the Santoris. He thinks Noah should be a liaison between the two families. Noah wants to do it and Victor decides to let him.
Back in Marisa’s suite, she remembers better times with Noah. Luca shows up and Marisa declares that she broke things off. Luca says he doesn’t want Marisa to feel obligated to be with him. He wants to make Marisa happy.
Other “Young and the Restless” spoilers reveal that Sage (Kelly Sullivan) and Nick (Joshua Morrow) will receive some relationship advice.

She says Sully has his father’s eyes. Y&R viewers will be anxious to see what happens once the truth about Sharon’s baby comes out.
Meanwhile, Nick goes to Sage’s penthouse. Chelsea hears Nick shouting for Sage and tells him that she’s out. Nick comes in for coffee and they talk about Sage moving in next door. Chelsea says that Sage is peppier since she’s been spending time with their family. Nick is bummed because Sage can talk to everybody but him.
Chelsea thinks it was a huge mistake for Sage to take the empty penthouse and admits it was Adam’s idea. Nick wonders why Adam is so invested in helping Sage. Chelsea is nervous about Adam working with Victor. Later, Chelsea sees Billy at the bar of the athletic club. He’s drinking and placing bets by phone.
