Scan­dalous Sab­o­tage


Soap World - - DAYTIME Y&R -

Throw­ing cau­tion to the wind, Billy and Phyl­lis have re­united in a red-hot love af­fair, know­ing that de­spite the com­pli­ca­tions sur­round­ing the feel­ings of their exes Vic­to­ria and Jack, they can’t deny the urge to be to­gether any longer. What the lovers don’t know is that Cane has stum­bled upon their se­cret li­ai­son and is mis­chie­vously plan­ning to use it to make trou­ble for Billy who is mak­ing Cane’s pro­fes­sional life at Brash & Sassy a mis­ery.

Aware of Billy (Ja­son Thompson) and Phyl­lis’s (Gina Tognoni) on­go­ing in­abil­ity to tell Vic­to­ria (Amelia Heinle) and Jack (Peter Bergman) about their rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, Cane (Daniel God­dard) takes Juliet’s (Laur Allen) ad­vice to for­mu­late a plan to ex­pose Billy as a fraud.

Spy­ing a text on Billy’s phone from Phyl­lis sum­mon­ing him to the Jabot el­e­va­tor, Cane lures Vic­to­ria to the lift as she rushes off for an im­por­tant ap­point­ment, cer­tain he can or­ches­trate her find­ing Billy and Phyl­lis in the throes of pas­sion. Sure enough, the plan works and as the doors open, Vic­to­ria is hor­ri­fied to see Billy and Phyl­lis kiss­ing.

Ap­palled that Billy didn’t want her to find out so pub­licly, Vic­to­ria hisses that he keeps on hurt­ing her. De­fen­sively, Billy in­sists that Vic­to­ria kept him on a string for months without com­mit­ting and he can’t keep dan­gling for­ever. He didn’t think she wanted him so he turned to Phyl­lis who gloats that she’s ca­pa­ble of giv­ing Billy what Vic­to­ria can’t. Watch­ing the fall­out, Cane hap­pily de­clares that Billy will no longer ride roughshod over him and of­fers his sup­port to Vic­to­ria while also con­sid­er­ing Jack’s ad­vice to ma­nip­u­late Billy’s sack­ing from Brash & Sassy for the busi­ness and Vic­to­ria’s ben­e­fits.

Mean­while, Vic­to­ria aims to make trou­ble for the new lovers by up­set­ting Phyl­lis with con­stant de­mands on Billy about his fam­ily com­mit­ments to the kids. Cane is pleased with her schem­ing es­pe­cially when he learns that Vic­to­ria hopes to dis­tract Billy with a fam­ily va­ca­tion dur­ing a com­pany busi­ness trip to LA.

Not want­ing to see Billy hurt Vic­to­ria again, Cane plots to de­stroy Billy’s pro­fes­sional rep­u­ta­tion dur­ing the LA film­ing of a Brash & Sassy com­mer­cial. Soon enough, Billy is pub­licly ac­cused of il­le­gal gam­bling and Cane se­cretly de­lights in his down­fall as Vic­to­ria de­clares that their con­tract with the pro hockey league to pro­mote their prod­ucts is dead and buried be­cause of his stu­pid­ity.

To fur­ther drive the wedge be­tween Billy and Vic­to­ria deeper, Cane sug­gests Vic­to­ria re­pair the dam­age by re­duc­ing Billy’s com­pany re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and is de­lighted when Vic­to­ria finds a naked Phyl­lis in Billy’s ho­tel bed. She scoffs at Phyl­lis and Billy’s au­dac­ity and loudly pro­claims that Billy is a spent force be­cause things can’t get any worse for him.
