The Young and the Restless spoilers for Monday, July 22, tease that Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Chelsea Lawson (Melissa Claire Egan) will chat over breakfast on the morning of Christian Newman’s (Jamie and Alister Tobias) custody hearing. Nick will be feeling confident about the hearing, while Chelsea worries about Nick going up against Adam Newman (Mark Grossman).
Nick will then meet up with Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) at Crimson Lights, where Michael will tell Nick that he has to recuse himself from the custody case due to a conflict of interest involving the judge’s wife. Nick won’t buy it and will suspect that Adam’s behind it. Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman) will arrive and she won’t believe Michael either, upsetting her husband.
Meanwhile, at his penthouse, Adam will be with Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart), who will complain to Adam about being forced to do his dirty work. Back at Nick’s house, Nick will update Chelsea on what happened with Michael. They’ll discuss Nick getting a new lawyer, but Nick won’t want to risk Adam having more time to prepare his case.

Next on Y&R, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) will be at a getaway location in their hotel room. They’ll discuss today’s custody hearing and Victor will think that Nick has it under control. Victor will voice that he is considering putting a stop to his medical treatments for a while, which will concern Nikki.
Victor will remark that he doesn’t think life is worth living if he loses his independence. He won’t like it that he’s so forgetful as a result of the treatments. Nikki will express understanding, but she’ll urge him to fight because she doesn’t want to face life without him.
Meanwhile, Adam will meet with his attorney at Society. Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) will show up and badger Adam about the upcoming hearing. Adam will then ask his lawyer to keep her phone on during the custody hearing, which she’ll remark is against the rules. Phyllis will surmise that Adam is up to something.

Later, Phyllis will arrive, and Lauren will question her about Adam as well.
Meanwhile, Michael and Adam will chat at Adam’s penthouse, and Michael will want out of their deal, but Adam won’t have it and he’ll offer to make Michael the new district attorney, which Michael’s won’t be interested in.
