12. Diane Will Win The Battle(s)

Diane will likely win the battle when it comes to driving a wedge between Phyllis and Jack. She’s already making Red look really bad, and Jack is losing faith in his romance with her. Is there a chance Jenkins could seduce Abbott during a weak point? No fan wants to think of this, but it is a possibility. Regardless, Jenkins will win a battle or two, but will she win the war?

11. Phyllis’s New Alliance

Y&R spoilers suggest that Nikki and Phyllis will come together to form an alliance to drive Diane out of town. With that said, if Diane finds out and tells Jack (or becomes aware of it) this will make Red look that much more terrible. This could also be a factor in Jenkins winning a battle (or two) against Phyllis when it comes Mr. Abbott. It’s great that Nikki and Phyllis are coming together, but it won’t be a good look if they get caught.

10. Who Dun It? (2.0)

Could Diane pass away in a “who dun it” fashion … again? There are many people out there that can’t stand her. The obvious ones are Phyllis, Nikki, Victor, and Summer, but she and Ashland are getting friendly. If they form an alliance of their own and Jenkins backstabs him to save herself, she may earn yet another enemy in Genoa City. If Diane is found murdered, could this launch yet another “who dun it” storyline this summer?

9. A Test For Summer & Kyle

Speaking of Diane, Y&R spoilers imply that Sklye’s marriage will be tested this summer and it’s hard not to think that Kyle’s mom won’t play a key factor in all this. Jenkins is a master manipulator and it’s clear that she doesn’t like her daughter-in-law, and the feeling is mutual. Will Diane be the downfall of Skyle?

8. What Challenges Will Teriah Face?

Y&R spoilers suggest Tessa and Mariah will face some challenges as a married couple this summer. One obvious one could be the struggle to adopt. Not only will the application process cause stress, but once (if) they are approved, the ups and downs of waiting for a child to come their way may feel like a rollercoaster ride.

7. Tessa Heads On The Road

It’s been a long while since Tessa has toured. What if this opportunity arises again this summer? The last time this happened, Mariah cheated. This could cause Porter to feel insecure about leaving. Plus, if Tessa isn’t around and Copeland is left with the bulk of the work around the adoption process, resentment could set in.

6. A Dream Come True Turns Into A Nightmare

Tessa and Mariah both have said they don’t want to adopt a “baby”, rather, they’d love to offer a child an opportunity at a real and loving home. Many kids fall through the cracks of the system, and most couples do want a baby, so adopting a child would truly make a difference for them, and the kiddo. But what if they get a preteen or teen that is troubled? It’ll be a lot of work and take a toll on their relationship.

5. Nate Gives In To Temptation

It’s only a matter of time before Nate gives into Imani’s advances. He’s not overly drawn to her, but she is quite relentless about her intentions. Plus, insecurity is never a good look, and Elena’s jealousy could be a turn-off for Hastings. Will Nate mix business with pleasure? He sure did when he was a doctor!

4. One-Nighter Turns Into A Lifelong Commitment!

Could Nate have a one-nighter with Imani that equals out to baby news a month later? She likely wouldn’t do it “on purpose” but these things do happen. Especially in the land of daytime drama! If Hastings cheated on Elena, and she mustered up the will to forgive him, would they be able to survive the fact that he’d be tied to Imani for the rest of his life?

3. Victoria & Ashland Try And Make Their Mark

They are officially reunited, so what now? Will they leave town? Start up their own business with the millions upon millions they have together? Acquire Marchetti, which wouldn’t be such a bad deal for Summer, as Vicky is her aunt. With Ashland losing access to little Harrison, could they decide to adopt a child of their own or try and have one? Either way, the Moustache won’t be pleased with any plans they have!

2. Allie Settles In

While Jack is dealing with his fair share of drama between Phyllis and Diane, a silver lining in his life is getting to know Allie better. So, he’ll likely be very pleased when she decides to work for the family business. Y&R summer spoilers imply that the new member of the Abbott family will be “lured” into working at Jabot. She’ll also get closer to Noah Newman. Sounds like Allie is becoming a permanent fixture in Genoa City!

1. Billy Steps Away From Chancellor-Winters … And Lily!

Bi-Li are hanging on by a thread. Billy seems out of place at Chancellor-Winters, and Lily seems to disapprove of everything he’s been doing lately. Does he leave the company and break up with the best girlfriend he’s ever had? He’s not overly convinced that Diane is public enemy #1, so do these two hook up this summer? Billy has a thing for Jack’s exes!
