They’ve been forced to team up together as they try and take on Adam, but Nick and Chelsea could feel the pressure and give in to some other things instead on the Tuesday, July 9 episode of “The Young and the Restless.”

After Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) husband died on the CBS soap, she wound up stuck in Genoa City, despite the fact that she had created a life for herself and Connor outside of the city. Since then, she has been crashing with Nick (Joshua Morrow), and when Adam (Marc Grossman) approached her to see if being a widow meant she would consider reigniting their former love affair, she turned him down. Now, as she and Nick try to make sure they can protect Connor and keep him out of Adam’s reach, the two could find their close quarters—and relationship—heavily questioned.

“Nick and Chelsea experience a charged moment,” spoilers reveal.

While nothing romantic has resurfaced between them just yet, Nick’s loved ones could become concerned by how quickly he seems to be rushing to Chelsea’s defense and help. Not only will Victoria (Amelia Heinle) likely express concern because it’s another way of causing tension between her brothers, who are already battling over custody of Christian, but Summer (Hunter King) may also take issue with her dad getting so wrapped up with Chelsea once again as well.

However, none of that may matter in the end, because though she is doing whatever she can to protect her family, and likely didn’t do anything to her husband since he was what standing in Adam’s way, a preview clip for the week’s episodes (see above) shows that Chelsea could wind up in way more trouble than she ever predicted upon returning to Genoa city—and Adam himself could be the mastermind behind her problems.

“The Young and the Restless” airs weekdays at 12:30 p.m. EDT on CBS.
