Sweet Sum­mer New­man (Hunter King) is head over heels for shady Luca San­tori (Miles Gas­ton Vil­lanueva) de­spite her fam­ily’s dis­taste for the San­tori crime fam­ily’s son and her dad Nick (Joshua Mor­row) call­ing Luca a “jerk” and a “pig” to his daugh­ter’s face. But while they’re busy plan­ning their en­gage­ment party this fort­night, her aunt Vic­to­ria (Amelia Heinle) is down in Mex­ico us­ing a com­bi­na­tion of sex and sweet-talk to per­suade her ex-lover Travis (Michael Roark) to re­turn to Genoa City and blow Luca out of the wa­ter…

Vic­to­ria’s sex-magic works – on Fri­day 5 May, with the wed­ding due to hap­pen the very next day, Travis ar­rives to crash Sum­mer and Luca’s en­gage­ment party. In­sults fly as Travis calls Luca a “bot­tom­feed­ing, back­stab­bing cock­roach”. But when a dis­be­liev­ing Sum­mer also re­sists Luca’s pleas to elope with him, he fi­nally re­veals the truth: he re­ally did sab­o­tage the New­man oil fa­cil­i­ties and he did it all to im­press the New­mans. Talk about your deal­break­ers – a real New­man wouldn’t have been caught.

Luca’s wrestling Sum­mer for the tele­phone af­ter she de­mands that he turn him­self in on Mon­day 8 May when Sum­mer’s step­fa­ther Jack (Peter Bergman) walks into the sit­u­a­tion. Cornered, Luca snaps and takes Sum­mer hostage. For­tu­nately Jack knows the real magic word for th­ese sit­u­a­tions and the mere men­tion of Vic­tor’s (Eric Brae­den) name is enough to make Luca drop Sum­mer like a hot po­tato. Was it all just a scheme though? It seems not. As the po­lice lead Luca out in hand­cuffs, he tells Sum­mer, “I did love you, Sum­mer. That was real.” Now ex­cuse us as we sulk be­cause Y&R couldn’t wait un­til Sum­mer and Luca’s wed­ding cer­e­mony to drop that Travis-bomb. NB! See more on p30.

Luca and Sum­mer’s ar­gu­ment is in­ter­rupted.
