Y&R Spoilers Arturo Confronts Mia
Arturo (Jason Canela) confronts Mia (Noemi Gonzalez) wanting to know what the hell just happened, as this is just a page out of her old playbook. He thinks she gets off on having some kind of power over him. She reminds him that they were each other’s first and are stamped into the other’s heart. She says she came to GC because she loves Rey (Jordi Vilasuso), but feels he will never forget the past and is punishing her in more ways than one.
She complains at how Rey isn’t present like lovers and partners should be, and is angry that Rey held information back from her when he didn’t say he was with Sharon (Sharon Case). Arturo needs to leave, saying it is more dangerous to stay with her than out on the treacherous roads. Rey asks if Sharon is awake, but she pretends to be sleeping as they continue to share the same bed.
Mia gets off the phone with Rey and tells Arturo: “A teeny tiny white lie. It’s not like we did anything wrong.”

Young and The Restless Spoilers Nikki Reveals All To Nick
Nikki reveals everything to Nick about what Victoria was going through with JT, and how she couldn’t help her daughter when she needed her the most. Nick wishes he had known when JT was in town; but Nikki reminds him that he wouldn’t know what he would do until he was there as she explains when she walked in on JT beating Victoria and she snapped, to save her child. She thought she only knocked him out, but he had no pulse and after a moment the horror set in, wondering what she had done. She is relieved to know Nick agrees with that she had done.
Nick wants to know who “we” is and why they didn’t call the police as this is a case of self-defense but Nikki explains she hit him from behind, so no one knew about Victoria’s abuse except her therapist. Nick is shocked that Victoria was too ashamed to tell them. Nick learns they made a very bad decision, wrapping JT in a carpet and buried him in Chancellor Park underneath Katherine’s sculpture.
Nikki sees a bloody firepoker and screams.
Nikki: “No, don’t touch it, it’s a murder weapon.”
Nick: “Mom, what are you talking about? Who’s murder?”
Nick: “How would you know that.”
