The Young And The Restless (Y&R) scoop for Wednesday, February 3 suggests a standalone episode focusing on Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and her tumultuous relationship with Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson).
Spoilers tease Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) will nag her daughter about being all work and no play. She wishes they could have gone to Hawaii. Victoria will tell her she has the kids and running Newman Enterprises was all she ever wanted. “I am perfectly happy with my life.”
However, Nikki will raise her eyebrows and tell her she needs to get out of the house and take a break from working. She’ll invite her to dinner and Victoria will decline. “I’m not a workaholic, despite how all of this looks,” she’ll say.

Next, she’ll dream that he’s professing his feelings to Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) in her living room, while she’s standing there. “This is my life, not hers!” she’ll shout. Johnny will wake her up, saying he had a bad dream. They’ll call Billy and he’ll calm him down. Victoria will contact her mother and tell her she changed her mind about dinner.
They’ll meet at Society and she’ll admit she’s been thinking a lot about Billy. He seems to have changed and matured and she wonders if she was too quick to dump him the last time. “I sold him short and he was a long term investment.” Nikki will ask if she’s still in love with him and she’ll shake her head no. But then Billy and Lily will walk in. He’ll approach their table and ask if Johnny’s okay.

After he walks over to the bar, she’ll tell her mother she’s tired of thinking about him. Nikki will tell her being with Billy again would be a step backward. “I have hoped that you would meet someone kind, and supportive and mature,” Nikki will say. “And unfortunately Billy is none of those things.”
Victoria is an interesting character but this episode seems like an hour of filler material. And most of it involves Billy, played by Thompson, who has already had two standalone episodes since September 2019. Have Y&R writers run out of ideas for storylines?
