The Young and the Restless update for Thursday June 11, 2009:
At the hospital J.T. wonders why on earth he let Victoria go undercover. Nikki arrives and wants to know what happened! The doctor comes out and says Victoria is fine, but they are going to do a CT scan to make sure. She also says they need to observe her because she's had a serious head injury in the past. Nikki calls Victor to alert him to what is going on.
Daniel and Jana try to explain the situation with the art piece to Kevin and Amber. Amber and Kevin are both shocked that Daniel would risk his life over a painting! Daniel finishes his story by telling everyone he has been framed for fake Aucker's murder and he's in a lot of trouble now. Daniel insists they need to get out of there now because the apartment is the first place the FBI is going to look for him. Daniel opens the door to leave, but the FBI is already there! Harold Aucker wants to know where Daniel was tonight and he tells the agent he was at home sketching. Aucker tells Daniel Victoria has been injured and Daniel inquires if she's all right. Aucker also informs him that a murder took place. In response to this, Daniel asks if Victoria saw anything. Aucker insists that because Daniel didn't ask who was murdered, he must already know! Daniel says he assumed it was someone involved in the art forgery scheme. Aucker shows Daniel a picture of the victim and Daniel confirms that this is the man who scammed him. Aucker leaves telling Daniel he will be keeping his eye on him and he plans to prove that Daniel and the rest of them are lying. Amber tells Daniel they can leave town now, but Daniel points out her designs are just starting to take off. Amber says she'll give all of that up. Kevin points out Jana is an accessory to murder - she told Daniel where the sting was going down! Daniel decides it's best to tell the truth.
Heather and Paul sit at the coffeehouse and talk. She teases him about being hauled down to the police station. Paul explains that he did some digging in Mary Jane's past and some things just didn't add up. He says when he confronted her about it, she overreacted, which makes him believe she's hiding something even more. Paul tells Heather what he found out and she wonders why this is so important to him. He tells her he swears he knows Mary Jane from somewhere - there's a strange connection. Heather says she hates it when pieces of the puzzle don't fit together. Suddenly, Mary Jane approaches with a man and Paul is served a restraining order! Heather is shocked any judge would grant a restraining order. She gives Mary Jane a dirty look as Paul is forced to leave the Club to obey the order.
At the Ranch, Victor thanks Adam for looking out for Ashley while he was away. Adam tells Victor it's the least he could do after everything Victor's done for him. Ashley appears and flashes back to falling down the stairs. Victor asks her what's wrong. She tells Victor she had a nightmare while he was gone and Adam suddenly asks her if she wants some tea. Victor gets a call from Nikki, informing him about Victoria, and he heads to the hospital. Adam remembers the night of the accident. Ashley comes in with some tea and toast and they sit down. She tells Adam she just felt the baby kick and puts his hand on her belly so he can feel it, too! Adam calls the doctor, who comes over. He asks the doctor how Ashley could be feeling the baby if there is none? The doctor tells Adam Ashley is having a hysterical pregnancy and it would be very traumatic for Ashley if he let her continue to believe she still has a baby inside her. He insists Adam needs to stop this now! Ashley appears and the doctor claims he's there to follow-up with her. He checks her out and tells her everything is as it should be. Ashley wants the doctor to meet Victor. When Ashley leaves the room to get some coffee for the doctor, he worries about what Victor will do if he finds out what's going on. Adam says he doesn't need to worry about Victor, but if he doesn't do what Adam wants, he needs to worry about him!
Victor joins J.T. and Nikki at the hospital. J.T. explains to him how he found Mary Jane on the property and that's why he was late getting to the bar and why he wasn't there when Victoria got injured.
Aucker visits Victoria in her hospital room. He asks her what happened. She tells him she went into the alley and called Balfour's name, she heard someone running away, found the body, and then the crates fell on her. She says she only saw J.T. in the alley. Victor, Nikki, and J.T. come into the room and Victor asks J.T. to escort the FBI agent out. Victor and Nikki visit with their daughter while J.T. tells Aucker to stay away from his wife outside the room. Aucker insists J.T. can't stop him because it's a federal investigation. J.T. threatens him. Victor and Nikki return to the hallway where Paul has arrived. Paul apologizes for being so late and tells them about Mary Jane and the restraining order. Victor says this is the second time he's heard Mary Jane's name tonight and asks Paul what he's going to do. The doctor interrupts and tells them Victoria only has a concussion and she can go home tonight.
Daniel, Amber, Kevin, and Jana find Aucker at Jimmy's bar and tell him the whole truth about what happened. Aucker accuses Daniel of being the fake Aucker's accomplice! Daniel tells him some man with a ski mask shot the victim, but Aucker says they found the gun and it has Daniel's fingerprints on it. Daniel admits he was afraid the fake Aucker would use the gun, so he picked it up and threw it away before he ran off. Aucker asks what happened to the briefcase of money and Daniel says he doesn't know anything about that. Aucker tells them the bottom line is two men went into the alley, only one came out alive, and $100,000 and a painting is missing. Before he leaves, Aucker tells Daniel if the money shows up in his possession, he's going to jail for a very long time!
Before Victor leaves the hospital, Nikki asks him how Ashley is doing. She admits she saw her talking to Sabrina's statue. He says perhaps Ashley finds it therapeutic. Nikki also tells him some strange things happened while he was away. Nikki tells him everything that happened - including how Adam told her Ashley went out with Jack when she stopped to check on her, how he sent the maid home with the night off, and how a strange doctor came to examine Ashley. Nikki says she feels badly for Adam, but she doesn't trust him - something was very wrong in that house last night. Victor assures her he will check it out.
As Paul and Nikki have coffee at Crimson Lights, she asks him if he's doing okay. He responds that the restraining order adds spice to his life. She's disappointed when she finds out Paul plans to keep digging into Mary Jane's pat. He assures Nikki he won't violate the restraining order, but now he's more determined than ever to figure out why Mary Jane gets so freaked out when he's around.
Mary Jane holds a picture of Paul next to her "enemies" scrapbook in her room at the Club. She says to herself out loud, "I can't do it. I don't want to be enemies with you, Paul."
The man wearing a ski mask goes into the coffeehouse and slips the briefcase full of money behind the counter!
Once back at the Ranch, Victor asks Adam and Ashley about the strange things that happened while he was away. Victor says he'd like to meet the new doctor and Ashley assures him he will. Ashley tells Victor the baby kicked earlier while he was out and she's sorry he missed it. Ashley heads upstairs. Victor stops Adam before he heads to bed and tells him Nikki mentioned he gave the maid the night off the other night. Adam says he did. Victor tells Adam he doesn't want him to be in the house alone with Ashley - he always wants someone else to be in the house as well. Adam wonders why Victor doesn't want him to be alone with Ashley. Victor reminds him that Ashley is fragile right now and Adam cannot see! After Victor goes upstairs, Adam whispers, "Sorry, Victor, but we're doing things my way now!"
