Y&R Spoilers Recap Highlights

Michael is high on winning a big case – off-screen, like when he sued Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan)’s grandfather – and wonders to Lauren Fenmore Baldwin (Tracey Bregman) if this would be a good time to go the top.

He consults with Christine Blair Williams (Lauralee Bell), who previously left the same job he is now considering leaving. They remember the good times … like, remember when Michael chased Christine and even broke through a wall between their offices. He went to jail, but then he escaped, and Christine gave him another chance, both professionally and personally, and … what does that have to do with whether Michael should retire or not? Christine has to go now, goodbye!

Young and Restless: The Voice of God

Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) added his two cents and told Michael he should retire from the DA’s office … and get to work for Victor. Do you remember when Michael worked for Victor before? It was much easier for Victor to tell him what to do when Michael was employed by him than when he had to pretend that he believed in the justice system in the DA’s office.

Y&R Spoilers Recap: Family Business

Gloria Bardwell (Judith Chapman) tells Michael she’s too old to be the mother of a retired man. Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) tells Michael that he’s going to get bored doing nothing. Chloe Mitchell Fisher (Elizabeth Hendrickson) tells Michael that if he is considering retiring, he should do so. Then they all have to now. Goodbye!

Y&R: Love in the afternoon

And then Michael and Lauren remember their own relationship, first kiss, wedding, baby … because it’s somehow relevant to the situation. Michael decides to retire. Congratulations on the anniversary, Christian Le Blanc!
