“The Young and the Restless” (YR) recap for Thursday, November 8, 2018 reveals that over at Chancellor Park, Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes) reports that an area of the park is cordoned off by police but they don’t know what they have found, or what might they be looking for.
At Jabot, Phyllis Summers (Gina Tognoni) texts Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) to ask if she’s heard anything new. Out in the hall, Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) appears with lunch for everyone. Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) is impressed. Back in the office, Phyllis reads that the police have remained silent about the crime scene. She gets a text from Victoria that no news is good news. After, Phyllis complains about Kyle not progressing on his assignment. Lola appears and hands Phyllis a sandwich before leaving. Kyle texts her and thanks her for the save.
At the park, Victoria Newman and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) eye the crime scene. Victoria informs her the repair crew found J.T. Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) watch and Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) ended up with it. Then tells her that he connected it to Mackenzie Hellstrom (Kelly Kruger). She wants her mother to hold it together. After Victoria leaves, Mariah Copeland approaches Nikki for a statement. Nikki says she’s in the dark. Rey appears and tells Mariah he has no comment. Rey spots Nikki in her car, and advises he needs answers about who does the park’s landscaping and who designed the sculpture. Nikki fishes for more information on his investigation, but Rey can’t divulge anything.
At the police station, Sharon McAvoy (Sharon Case) spots a woman who looks like Nikki Newman being booked and is rattled. She takes a call from Nikki, who tells her Rey Rosales wants to know everything about the park. Sharon soothes that without a body there’s no murder. Nikki snaps, “Until one shows up!” She wants Sharon to get answers. Later, Mariah Copeland arrives, and Sharon realizes she’s looking for scoop. Rey arrives and Mariah asks about new developments. Rey says it’s too early for statements. Sharon and Rey step away, and he then tells her they may have a significant lead and if there is even the slightest bit of evidence at the park his team will find it.
