On today’s The Young and the Restless recap:

Abbott mansion: Kyle tells Jack he wants to take on the CEO role for the Marchetti division. Jack admits he'll miss working with Kyle, but can't wait to see him soar in his new position.

Summer tells Jack that Phyllis is trying to put her anger and hatred about Diane behind her, but isn't sure she can do it. She wants to know what happened with her and Jack, but he refuses to talk about it and leaves.

Chancellor Park: Diane and Michael acknowledge they're happy to be in each others' lives again. Michael tells Diane that Nikki approached him to dig up dirt about her life in LA. He explains he took the job to clear her name because he's on her side. Michael wants to know up front if he'll find anything.

Diane assures him he'll come up empty. She says her time as Taylor was the quietest because it had to be. (But, someone with a ginormous black hat, ginormous black sunglasses, and a slinky bright dress is lurking behind a ginormous hedge...who could it be?)

Jack turns up and comments how the two have recovered their friendship pretty quickly. Michael says he's happy about it and enjoys Diane's company. He makes a comment that Jack should be open minded. Diane leaves. Jack tells Michael he's being nice for Kyle's sake and time will tell if she's really changed. When Jack leaves, Michael tells Phyllis she can come out from behind the bush (like Alexandra Spaulding).
