On today’s The Young and the Restless recap:

Los Angeles: Jack returns to the house and demands Diane tell him what she wants. He tells her Allie's off limits. Diane claims she's trying to repent and Jack blasts her for ditching Kyle.

Diane says she made an escape plan, which included Kyle, but it all went wrong. Enter Deacon Sharpe, who helped her disguise her body. She ran because she caused so much damage and hurt a lot of people. She ended up leaving Kyle to keep him from being on the run. Diane tells Jack she went through a lot of therapy to understand her motivations. 

When she talks about Kyle, Jack tells her she's his late mother. All Jack wants is to know what she's after so they can be done for good. He tells her he can't help her if she's looking for a return to romance. Jack realizes she wants him to help her reconnect with Kyle. Jack thinks all her actions to get to him don't speak to reform. Diane claims she's changed (ahem) and points out that Jack did as well. He refuses her request and walks away.

Jack and Allie meet at the coffee shop, and he tells her to forget about Diane. Jack says she wants to reunite with Kyle. Jack gets fired up and Allie tells him that she can see some of her father in him. Allie's curious about other family members and Jack obliges her.
