“Young and the Restless” (YR) recap for Tuesday, January 8, 2019 reveals that over at Victoria Newman’s (Amelia Heinle) place, Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) arrives and finds Victoria freting about the memorial for J.T. Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) and she says it shouldn’t be happening in this house where it all ended.
She quickly adds, “The relationship, I mean.” Billy suggests she tell Reed Hellstrom (Tristan Lake Leabu) he has to cancel the memorial. Victoria promises she can handle it. Later, Reed tells Billy he knows J.T.’s memorial is bothering his mother. Billy notes their relationship was complex. Reed wants him to be straight and wonders if he should call the whole thing off? Billy promises his mother knows what it means to him and is completely on board.
At home, Phyllis Summers (Gina Tognoni) finds Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) worrying about his parents. He thinks Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) may be telling the truth. Phyllis feels if he keeps down this path, he’ll regret it. She reminds him that he worked hard to get out from under Victor’s shadow and has thrived ever since. Phyllis recalls every time he hopes for a new beginning with his father it ends in pain.

She urges him to just walk away. Later, Victoria Newman arrives to tell them about the memorial. Nick says they’ll be there, and Phyllis points out it must be tough for Reed Hellstrom thinking his grandfather murdered his father. Nick informs Victoria he has doubts about Victor’s innocence himself. Nick leaves, and Victoria confronts Phyllis for trying to convince Nick their father is a killer and she thinks it’s about revenge. Phyllis snaps, “You’re damn right it is.”
She’s been looking for payback for years, and the longer Victor suffers, the better! Victoria reminds her Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is walking an emotional fine line and she had to stop her from confessing. Phyllis feels if Nikki confesses, she’s an idiot, then calls Victoria out for always defending her father. She then says he’s as vile as J.T. ever was and deserves everything he gets. Victoria slaps Phyllis. Victoria warns Phyllis about fanning the flames. Phyllis counters, “Don’t you threaten me.” Victoria says she just did, and walks out.
At Rey Rosales’ (Jordi Vilasuso) place, he, Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor), and Mia Rosales (Noemi Gonzalez) are set to be taste-testers for Lola Rosales’ (Sasha Calle) restaurant recipes. She pleads for honest feedback. Mia assures her she won’t hold back. That’s why Lola’s there. As Lola cooks, Mia presses Kyle to take Rey to a hockey game. Kyle’s all for it. He joins his girlfriend in the kitchen to canoodle and boost her confidence. Rey exclaims, “Kyle, no customers in the kitchen.”

After the first course, Mia declares it was all cooked to perfection, but it was rather traditional. Lola admits she played it safe. Kyle tells her the things that make her food special and unique were missing. Lola, upset, decide she’s in over her head. Kyle delivers a pep talk, but Lola’s convinced she can’t do this. Upon a look from Rey, Kyle tries again. He reminds Lola that Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) and Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) hired her for her unique dishes and she shouldn’t second guess herself.
Rey chimes in that she’s got what it takes and Mia’s envious of what she can do. Lola heads back into the kitchen. Her next effort gets full approval. Mia drags Rey out for a walk. Lola thanks Kyle for reminding her of her strength and they kiss.
In Devon Hamilton’s penthouse, Ana Hamilton (Loren Lott) finds her brother and Fenmore Baldwin (Zach Tinder) listening to a track of Fenmore’s. Ana informs Devon she wasn’t feeling it and he’s got the production all wrong. They bicker about whether the song was intended to be a pop song until Devon decides the discussion is over. After, he apologizes if he made Ana feel her opinions were being dismissed.

He goes upstairs to take a call and Ana asks Fenmore to get her a copy of the final mix so she can change Devon’s mind. Fenmore doesn’t want to mess things up with Devon. Ana presses him to forward her the file. Fenmore does it and she tells him he will not regret it.
At Crimson Lights, Fenmore Baldwin listens to Ana Hamilton’s new mix of the song and he raves that her version is way better than Devon Hamilton’s and she improved it radically. He urges her to come clean to Devon, but Ana wants to keep her song writing to herself, though she’d like to be more involved in production.
Back at the penthouse, Devon Hamilton listens to Ana Hamilton’s version of the song and is offended at the lack of respect of them going behind his back. Ana takes responsibility, so Devon asks Fenmore to leave. Fenmore reminds Devon that music means as much to Ana as it does to him, and she’s got plenty of talent. Once alone, Devon confronts Ana for taking advantage of him.
Ana was only trying to help. Devon thinks she was trying to help herself and says moving forward she should have nothing to do with the LP. Ana can’t believe he’s serious. Devon needs to run his life and business without her interference.
