"The young and the restless" spoilers hint that Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) acts like he hates Hilary Curtis (Mishael Morgan) but that's not the whole story. In fact, Neil once loved her to the extreme and never really got over her. Now it seems that fate might push these exes together when both hit rock bottom, and Hilary betrays Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) over their baby bargain.

Hilary breaks the rules

"Y&R" spoilers for next week promise that Hilary shares with Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) that she had a false positive pregnancy and she's not preggo at all.

With Devon furious at Hilary and committed to Simone (Shanica Knowles), he's not going to hop back in bed with Hilary to try for round two of impregnating her.

But when talking with Phyllis, "Young and the Restless" spoilers for Monday reveal that Hilary remembers that Devon donated sperm and it's still at her OB/GYN's office. Hilary considers that as her backup plan to have the baby she wants with Devon. Hilary doesn't want Devon knowing she's not pregnant, so she must act fast, but "YR" spoilers hint that fate intervenes.

Neil-Hilary love still there

Remember the "Y&R" history when Hilary lost her memory, and she and Neil slept together at Jabot? Devon was crushed when he saw them. Neil couldn't help himself.

He still loved her deep down even though he also had motives of revenge back then. Neil pushes Hilary away constantly because he can't have her around -- because he still loves her!

"Young and the Restless" fans also recall that when Hilary hit her head, Neil risked everything to hide her away for months while she recovered.

Why? It's because deep down he wanted to keep her for himself. Also, Hilary never stopped loving Neil either. She hates that she hurt him so badly and he still holds a place in her heart.

Desperation leads to passion?

"Young and the Restless" spoilers tease that Hilary lashes out because she knows how badly she screwed up with both Neil and Devon and regrets the mistakes of her past.

Some rumors hint that devastated Hilary winds up drinking while depressed over her failed baby plan and the fear that she'll never get pregnant -- even if she uses Devon's sperm without his permission.

When Neil sees Hilary boozing, he'll take pity. As a recovered alcoholic, he doesn't like seeing anyone destroy themselves that way. But when Neil offers to see Hilary safely back to her suite at the GCAC, things may take a complicated turn. Drunk Hilary says sorry for the way she treated him and that could spark the chemistry that's always been there between them.

Who's the daddy twist ahead?

"Y&R" spoilers say Hilary may end up back in bed with her ex, which gives her one more chance at a baby.

But Hilary won't stop there. She's so desperate for a child that she'll also use Devon's sperm she's got in storage (unless he remembers to call the doctor to have it tossed out). That doubles her chance to have a Hamilton-Winters baby, but there's also a twist ahead.

If Hilary does finally get pregnant, there will be the dilemma over who the father is. Would it be the father or the son that got her pregnant? Mal Young may be taking the relationship full circle. Since it began with Hilary and Neil, maybe it will end with Hilary and Neil and a baby. We'll see what happens next week when all this starts.
