'The Young and The Restless' Spoilers: Why does Billy fire Amanda and will Michael drop the charges against him?
Despite her beliefs, Amanda tries to propagate that Billy is innocent and was framed, yet Billy fires her. Here's what goes down
Amanda might have told Billy off regarding their strictly professional dynamics going forward, in the wake of his art, but she is not letting the case go by without a fight when it comes to Michael. In fact, she comes at him so hard, that despite Billy firing her, Michael is forced to consider dropping the charges against the other man. Here's how all of that goes down in the upcoming December 10 episode of 'The Young and The Restless'.
According to spoilers teased by CBS, Amanda will see to it that Michael doesn't bully Billy into a prison cell; she fights hard for her client to still stay free, and instead of being grateful and impressed by all that she's doing, Billy decides to loo at how Amanda doesn't honestly believe in him. It's true though, Amanda doesn't believe Billy is hundred percent innocent and that becomes the focal point of the argument between the two which ends with Billy firing Amanda. Billy reasons with Lily that he needs somebody who believes in him to represent him, but maybe firing Amanda wasn't the right choice by a good margin.
Despite her beliefs, Amanda tries to propagate that Billy is innocent and was framed; she insists he shouldn't have been arrested in the first place. And while this doesn't acquit Billy of the charges immediately, it does make a mark on Michale when the prosecution and defense meet for a discussion about the hearing, and he proposes the opt for a plea deal. Billy, furious and raging, refuses to plead guilty for a crime he says he did not commit, and Michael walks out saying they have only till 5 pm to accept the offer. In a rushed state, Amanda, seeing no other way out, sot of implies Billy take the offer and that's when he fires her on the spot.
However, at the end of the episode, it is expected that Amanda will finally have her win of sorts. At Crimson Lights, as Jack and Lauren are chatting about the very ambitious and explosive Sally, Michael walks in on them and admits he does not enjoy prosecuting Billy. This is the aftermath of Billy practically yelling at Michale during their meeting, asking him to look him in the eye and tell him he believes Billy committed the crime. Looks like this has affected Michael who is now contemplating whether or not to pursue these charges at all.
Jack also asks Michael to drop the charges if he feels so bad about having to prosecute Billy and therein lies Amanda's little win. She has managed to chip away at Michael's confidence surrounding his stand in the case. Unfortunately, as Michale tells Lauren later, he must not let his personal feelings interfere in the matter and the case should go into trial.
Spoilers also tease that Abby and Chance will finally head back to Genoa City from their honeymoon and will discuss the prospects of having their own little family once they babysit Chloe's son for a bit. Speaking of family bliss, that will be the last thing on the cards for Adam and Chelsea who are still hovering in the aftermath of her terrifying diagnosis; relief however comes in the form of the specialist telling them they can wait until holidays are over to treat the aneurysms.
'The Young and The Restless' airs on weekdays at 12.30 pm only on CBS.
