Jack Sniffs Out Dina’s Lie!
This week on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Dina must deal with the fallout from her decision to claim that she — not Graham — hired a P.I. to take photos of Jack and Nikki. Of course, the problem with lies is that they can too easily trip you up!
The In Depth Story: Jack was already peeved that his mom let Graham read confidential Jabot files. So when Dina revealed that she was responsible for spying on him and Nikki — and sending the pics to Victor — Jack’s short fuse got a lot shorter!
Dina isn’t aware of her son’s fur y until she requests her laptop so she can work at home, and Jack tells her not to worry as he hasn’t given her any work to do! While Dina has been having some memory issues, she isn’t a fool. Sensing her firstborn’s coldness, Dina tries to placate him by reporting that she’s spoken to Victor, who assured her that he won’t retaliate against Jack and Nikki. Knowing Victor much better than that, Jack blasts his mother for being naïve. In fact, Jack is certain that his enemy is currently plotting numerous ways to take him down!
Dismissing Jack as paranoid, Dina insists that Nikki is only using him to either make Victor jealous or to line her own pockets! Even though Jack concedes that Nikki might have been materialistic in the past, he insists that she’s changed. And one of those ways that she’s changed is being over Victor for good!
As their argument escalates, Jack again slams Dina for abandoning the family, making her wonder why he can’t believe she’s changed the way Nikki has. Jack admits that he had begun to believe it… until Dina hired someone to spy on him! Exasperated, Dina argues that she didn’t hire the P.I. but cuts herself off, horrified at the unintentional slip!
Ah, but Jack hears enough and takes all of a nanosecond to deduce whom Dina is protecting! Will the discovery of Graham’s interference be the final straw that pushes Jack to join forces with Ashley and take down the interloper?
“And another thing,” Jack blasted Dina, “I never forgave you for tossing the macaroni necklace I made for you in preschool!”
