Few battles involving love and rivals end well, but CBS “The Young and the Restless” Spoilers are happy to say it gets interesting as we close out Rivalry Week with a throwback spoiler. While we’ve enjoyed going back to the 1990s more than not (take notes, “Bold and the Beautiful”), we’re going to May 22, 2014 for a fun confrontation between Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) and Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan) over Lily’s father, Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John).
Yep, we’re getting into a classic teenager-type of battle where the daughter doesn’t approve of who her father is with. What’s cool here is Lily has no problem confronting her problem head on. With interesting methods.
A splash of inspiration
If there’s one thing CBS “The Young and the Restless” Spoilers has learned is always expect the unexpected. Why? Soap opera characters are insane teenagers running around without supervision.
All we’re going to do is point to Lily throwing a bucket of cold water on Hilary to wake her up so they can argue.
Seriously, this is the best way to wake someone up to start a fight (PSA Don’t try this at home).
With her rival for her father’s love awake, Lily lays into her, accusing her of seducing her father during his weakest moment. This, of course, is part of the accusation of Hilary trying to destroy Lily’s family.
Hilary attempts to defend herself by claiming she’s just living her life, and then pointedly asks is Lily thinks she can keep them apart. Remember that part about teenagers above? Yeah, this is where it kinda comes to a head. On the plus side, it seems this could’ve been the end of the accusations as their discussion eventually led to Lily realizing Hilary loves Neil.
And then came the curve ball
As seems mandatory on these shows, Neil decides this is the perfect time to walk into the room, and he’s surprised to find Lily there.
Seeing her father reignites the fire and she turns her sights on Neil. She demands to know why he stabbed her in the back by making the worst mistake of his life. Neil takes her best shot, and responds by pointing out it’s his decision to make and Hilary is part of his life. As simple as that.
Lily, channeling her inner teenager, responds like any teenager would and walked out of the room, trying to look unimpressed.
The scene ends with a loving moment between Neil and Hilary, ending the week’s Rivalry theme on a positive note that shows that no matter what’s happening, there’s a positive somewhere to be found.
It’s pretty cool how that worked out, and it’s left us wondering what’s in store for next week.
