“The Young and the Restless” spoilers for Thursday, October 12, tease that Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) will get some news she disapproves of. At Top of the Tower, Nikki scolds Jack (Peter Bergman) for asking Hilary (Mishael Morgan) to cover Ashley’s (Eileen Davidson) party. She fears there’ll be trouble.
Hilary mentions that Nick (Joshua Morrow) has an interview airing right now, so Nikki struts off to check it out. Michael (Christian LeBlanc), Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) and Billy (Jason Thompson) arrive for the event. Jack (Peter Bergman) manages to be nice to Billy just this once.
At the Abbott mansion, Ashley wonders what Traci (Beth Maitland) recalls about Graham (Max Shippee) as a young man. Traci suggests that he always seemed glum. Ravi (Abhi Sinha) shows up and immediately notices Ashley’s upset. She pretends she’s just stressed over her upcoming speech.
In a suite, Graham and Dina (Marla Adams) talk about Ashley’s paternity. When Graham notes that it didn’t really affect Ashley’s life, Dina counters that it most certainly did. Ashley was a wreck when she found out and almost never recovered.
Meanwhile, Nick (Joshua Morrow) makes a big announcement on The Hilary Hour. He brings up how great wealth can divide families. Nick wants to donate every cent of his trust fund to charity. Later, Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and Nikki demand answers. They don’t understand why Nick made such a reckless move.
Nick fills them in on Victor’s (Eric Braeden) decision to drain his checking account. They realize Nick is doing his part in all this out of spite. Nikki and Victoria advise against giving up the trust fund cash, but Nick wants something good to come out of it. Victor warns his son that he’s throwing away the only thing he had to protect himself.
Back at Ashley’s party, everyone mingles until it’s time for some toasts. Traci and Jack praise Ash before Graham nudges Dina to do the same. Dina struggles to fight back tears, so Ashley tries to wrap it up. When Graham pushes Dina to keep talking, it sparks an argument. Ashley mentions Graham’s mom, Myrna (Marcia Rodd). She insists that Graham was raised right there in Genoa City.
Ashley maintains that Graham has been manipulating her mother and he finally comes clean. Graham notes that Brent Davis was his stepfather. Brent was the only dad that ever played a role in Graham’s life. Dina came along and destroyed everything by pulling Brent away from their family.
A shocked Dina wonders if this really all goes back to “Ashley’s father, Brent Davis.” As the paternity secret comes out, Graham raises his glass for a toast. He talks about how Ashley isn’t a true Abbott.
