                            'The Young and the Restless' spoilers: A Friday full of emotional breakdown on the cards for Genoa City

There's trouble and some "emotional breakdowns" this Friday on 'The Young and the Restless.' The spoilers for Friday, August 31 predict a day that is sure to turn the lives of your favorite Genoa City's elite.

There's the return of a character we did not expect. Tessa (Cait Fairbanks) finds her way back home only to find that a very emotionally unstable Mariah (Camryn Grimes) waiting to meet her at the door. Mariah and Tessa have had a pretty turbulent relationship so far, and Tessa's going away has really affected their strained relationship. While Mariah is happy she is okay and well, she is enraged by just how bad the situation is.

Mariah had been so worried about Tessa, but she was subjected to such an indifferent attitude from the woman she loved that it left her feeling lonely, unwanted and insecure. Making matters worse, Tessa doesn't even give her all the answers under the ruse of keeping her safe.

 



 

While Mariah can't see this, Sharon (Sharon Case) can. Even though she wants to warn Mariah she hesitates, and that makes Mariah angry. What is Tessa hiding and what does Sharon know? We find out soon enough that Tessa is actually not back because she misses home or Mariah - she's returned because the smugglers that once helped her hide her sister now want a huge payoff and she doesn't have that kind of money. $20,000 or her sister will face the consequences - can Tessa make it?

Another part of GC is mourning the loss of a loved one. The Ashbys are gearing up to live without Lily (Christel Khalil). Cane (Daniel Goddard) decides that he should celebrate his wife's numbered days in case things don't go their way in court. He decides to go for the traditional - wine and dine - and share some quality time; however, trouble strikes when Devon sees Lily having a good time. Will he do something to sabotage Lily? He gets to know that Lily wanted to plead guilty and that she would go to any lengths to get her brother back. 

Meanwhile, Vicky begs Devon to contemplate and make the right move and to go beyond momentary pleasures. Shauna (Camryn Hamm) says something that strikes a chord with Devon. She is torn between not wanting to hurt the Ashbys and doing Hilary justice - so she decides to drown in paperwork, hoping it will take her mind off things. Sadly, this plan fails when Rey (Jordi Vilasuso) shows up. 

Rey tells that he's visiting GC to collect some bills and claims that he is still the man she used to know - the bill collector. Vicky, however, is too smart for his deception and announces that she's paying all of her ex's debts if that's what it means to keep him safe. Rey is caught in a tough spot as he leaves Vicky's office - or so she thinks. Rey actually has Vicky exactly where he wants her. Why is Rey doing this? 

Vicky panics after he leaves and then Sharon sends her a voicemail saying that Rey is armed and dangerous. She then realizes she needs medication. Nate arrives on the scene as soon as he hears the news. Vicky has flashbacks to the time JT tried to strangle her. She regrets her decision to let go of the past and is in tears as to why she didn't just let him go. Nate is shocked at the breakdown and doesn't really know what to do.
