Hunter King and Michael Mealor Return to Y&R for Victoria and Ashland’s Wedding

Photo: JPI

Next week on The Young and the Restless, it’s the wedding of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) and it has The Newman and the Locke clans all converging in Tuscany, Italy for the nuptials.

While the wedding invitation put out on social media says the “I-do’s” are set for the Thursday, October 14th episode, also be on the lookout for fan favorite duo, Skyle to return beginning on Tuesday, October 12th, which welcomes back to the show, Hunter King (Summer) and Michael Mealor (Kyle).

When King and Mealor were written-off the show and off-contract, Summer and Kyle decided to make Milan, Italy their home.

So, will the wedding of Ashland and Victoria actually take place? Billy (Jason Thompson) wants it not to happen, and Victoria seems to be set on going through with it as an important business merger, more than a love-filled marriage.

Watch the “Next Week” on Y&R teaser below, and check out the wedding invitation following it, as well.

Now let us know, are you excited to see Skyle back on your screens? What do you think will happen at the wedding of Victoria and Ashland? Share your theories in the comment section.

I’m glad they’re wrapping this up properly but I’m not happy about Kyle’s horrific buzz cut. Nope, not happy at all.

Yup, Soaphound—-so happy to see these two—-not happy about the buzz-cut, either. I like to see a guy with a full head of hair—
I’m not happy about that poor “doll” baby Dominic either—-the swadling has to go—no wonder it cries so much—let it be free!! I promise the doll will stop crying. LOL.
It hasn’t been that long since I had a baby. When infants cry that much, their arms and legs flail all over the place—cannot keep him/her contained. Let’s add a modicum of reality and sanity into the mix, people!! This little thing is as stiff as a doll. Ha!!
I’m not happy about the Tuscan scenery either—-the furniture, indoors and outdoors is soooo wrong—-too much clutter. Too many flowers in vases—-sheer-draperies over doors—just not done in Italy—-especially in Firenze—-where are the terra cotta vases and containers?—-where is the rustic ambiance of the typical Florentine villa? The Etruscans flair? That’s what Tuscany is all about. I can’t believe I saw wooden posts reminiscent log cabins a’ la Americana.
No evidence of Etruscan legacy and influence. Bah-humbug. LOL.

I forgot to ask your opinion, Soaphound—-do you think there’s any chance that “Summer” and “Kyle” will re-surface? Just when I was getting comfortable with these two, the PTB decide to terminate them.
Also, do you think Mariah and Tessa will soon be history? I love Mariah—Camryn practically grew up on Y&R. But, I can’t stand Tessa and her constant-sad-demeanor. She’s like the Angel of Doom darkening Mariah’s aura.
Obviously Mariah can’t let go of Bowie—-I said as much before she even gave birth to him. Too much time was spent with only the baby as a lifeline—pardon the accidental pun—to keep her wits and sanity about her.
Lastly, pardon the typos —it’s the middle of the night, and there’s this owl right outside the window, driving me nuts.

Celia, Celia, thank heaven we are in sync. First, BIG mistake writing off Kyle. We’re short on “Abbott time” as it is and I like just looking at Michael M. (preferably with that gorgeous pompadour). Summer I can take or leave, though she’s a good actress. I think they need them both on the canvas, however. Next: Oh that villa! “Villa de Junko” you mean. That’s the most ridiculous collection of bric-a-brac a studio prop team has ever been coerced into assembling. I’d say ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ but I think I spotted one of those, too! Less is definitely more. Then, Tessa. I like Cait — she’s beautiful (though I suspect some unneeded collagen in those lips) and a decent actress. But the character just isn’t her own person; she only reacts to Mariah. BTW, how great is Camryn Grimes? I really feel for her situation but this just isn’t going to end well. I suspect Tessa will cave in on the baby plan; if not, I think Devon will be making another “donation” before New Year’s!

O my gosh, Soaphound—-I doubt these scenery makers have ever been to Italy or Tuscany. There is a word which Italian love to use describing such people–“cafone”.
Florence, which is home to many treasures from the art-world and their artists, has many rustic areas, where tiny, land winding paths, called “vichi” still exist.
I can’t even find the right words to describe the beauty and authenticity of Tuscany. As the phrase goes, “you hadda be there”.
The interior is just as farcical as the storylin—-
by getting rid of Kyle and Summer, TPTB did us a disservice and truly stuck their foot in their collective mouths.

Oh—yes, Soaphound. I forgot—-my sister-in-law, who is an avid Y&R fan, said she read some article about Mariah taking Abby to court for custody of Dominic. I don’t know how true that is—-sometimes what is printed is not necessarily true.
I didn’t see any of it—maybe because I don’t look for such news.
Personally, I think Devon is feeling paternal pangs himself.
Such an idiotic storyline—Chance, the absentee husband is a phantom Daddy. What a nondescript work of embroidery on the canvas!!
I have loved Mariah since she first appeared as Cassie. I was eight or nine, I think—–my grandmother used to record all the soaps for me. So many soaps—-I cried when AW went off the air!!
(Are we allowed to talk about collagen injections?) Shh!!
GH–Sam? Anna?
I appreciate Laura Wright—not one sign of a bee sting on her face. She’s naturally pretty and real.

Celia, As usual you are absolutely correct! I noticed that about Dominic last week. Y&R needs a shot in the arm!!

Thank you, Lew–it’s been a while since we had a good chat.
It’s so unrealistic when they use these “makeshift babies” who never seem to grow. Dominic will most likely be a neonate for months to come.
Take Henry on Days—-that kid is over a year old and still in a pram., crying like a newborn. He’s a toddler and as such he should constantly be on the move with Allie chasing after him.
But, we accept it because we love our soaps.

Actually I didn’t even recognize him at first, he looks very different – not just the hair though.

Are we even going to see the Summer/Kyle wedding?

The Summer/Kyle wedding happened off screen, so we won’t see it. Those of us that are fans of the two got cheated out of seeing them actually marry.

Yes, was let down to not see the wedding, however, recall their last nuptials and thought them lovely; simplicity, her gown, music, setting.
Circumstances were less than lovely, but for some reason it seemed perfection for me.

Michael Mealor got his hair cut shortly after leaving the show not thinking that he’d be back for a big affair such as this.

Thank god Summer and Kyle are back. Theres such a hole in the show with their departure. Its soo obvious now how those two carried the show awhile ago.
Besides the Vic/ Ashland story theres literally nothing else going on
Abby and Mariahs baby story cannot carry the show like Kyle and Summers story did.
How this show fills a whole week surronding only one good real storyline and one crappy one is beyond me.

Even more baffling is why no soap site( this one included) or SOD wont comment on the pathetic state of this show! Put Griffith and Morina on blast. Theres 2 storys, 3 sets,the horrid hotel and its cheap ikea suite and crimson lights. the once beautiful background music s which is trademark y n r s been subbed with garbage.
Its a empty shell of what once was. Sooo sad . I cant believe Griffith and Morina still have jobs

This show is a shell of its former self. It’s bad all around. The media outlets (this site included) usually reserve judgment until the end of the year when they make their pronouncements on which show was the best and which show was the worst. I suspect that Y&R will be in the bottom of the heap at years end, or at least close to it. B&B is also terrible.

All I want for the upcoming xmas is Josh Griffith fired. Toss Morina out too. Maybe im being greedy but Tessa, Abby and Devon can go bye aswell.

I feel very sorry for this show it has lost all guidance

In 2006 I do not remember who was writing for the show then but Lauren had Finn and all you ever saw was a doll like what’s happening now with Abbys child it is distracting I know their are rules and stipulations how long a baby can be on set but yes to viewers it is distracting . I do not recognize this show anymore and yes I am sad not mad just sad . I miss entertainment a time when you could just relax watch a soap yes you knew it was a soap but just enjoy it the younger viewers don’t know what they missed exciting stories etc I am sad

Kay…And it’s not just soap stories of yore the younger viewers have missed. There’s so many other things in entertainment, tv shows, music, and pre-internet/social media we all miss.

What isn’t working on Y&R? Characters without a purpose: 1) Elena & Nate – Give these two a storyline. I thought Imani was going to be in the mix? 2) Sally – Loved her on B&B, but this carbon copy Phyllis isn’t doing it for me. 3) Jack chasing after Phyllis- These two had their time and when they were together, she turned to someone else. 4) Mariah & Tessa – Not interested. Camryn Grimes is a good actress and deserves better material. 5) Kevin, Gloria, Michael, Lauren, Paul & Christine and Jill being back-burnered for new characters who are not interesting. I totally agree rhis show is a shadow of its former self.

Oh! 6) Kyle & Summer not being on the show. Their exit leaves a huge gap and can’t be filled by the crap we are getting now!

Lol….Michael, Lauren , Christine and Paul will never be front and center with Griffith or have been with any of the last regimes because those characters are complex and intelligent in their careers as Lawyers, prosecutors , police chief and business woman and need the storylines to mirror those lifestyles. Griffith i.e can only script stories as he goes along with no creativity, amateur and recycled garbage. We will never see a umbrella story involving all four about a shocking crime or riviting courtroom scene because Griffith is too basic. Pauls m.i.a as is the gc police station, Christine pops in to counsel that valley girl Abby while Nina s the new Esther, Lauren doed coffee shop talk with Gloria who is maybe sometimes back for good and Michaels the go to lawyer for G.C in a half eppy.

Gtiffith can barely even write a standard business story about Newman and Jabot or teen romance via Faith and Moses .

Hey Damien, You are correct, but GH has Alexis and she’s a lawyer and on contract. But, they don’t have Griffith as a head writer and are capable of telling stories that drag you in and have characters that have rooting value!

in spite of Nicki and Billy Boy’s interference, It looks like there will be a wedding. So nice that Kyle and Summer could make it.Too bad Mariah thought that Abby would not be able to get along without her in case that loaf of bread or whatever she’s been carrying around can’t get along with formula.
I record my shows so I can FF when Tessa starts her caterwauling and Ms.Brooks does her piano thing. These things, especially at a wedding bore me to tears, just not cultured enough I guess. Gee maybe Leslie and Nicki can do a little impromptu Chop-Sticks. I saw Sally in a little clip put the wedding gown in the chifferobe or whatever that is. Hope that tells us Victoria will probably adore it but will think it came from Lauren. I for one, hope the wedding goes as planned. I love Richard Burgi and think they make a very lovely couple but my soap conditioned head tells me that Ashland will suffer an attack of sorts, he already said he wasn’t feeling well and by the end of the ceremony or soon after. Victoria will be a very wealthy and desolate widow. I do hope I’m wrong!

Loaf of bread? Violet, you’re too funny…and accurate. A loaf of bread that GETS NO OXYGEN from the way they hold it. Oy! I like Richard Burgi, too, and I was hoping they weren’t going to trash the character as I feel they have. I keep waiting for yet ANOTHER shoe to drop but so far there have been more than a Jimmy Choo warehouse. And I hate the idea of Billy being vindicated and Victor made a fool. But it’s sure keeping me watching. And Sally and that blasted dress! Why not let Chloe offer the dress to Victoria or, better yet, EMAIL HER A PHOTO!!

I just feel it’s movable or pliable whereas a bag of flour or sugar is just dead weight. I do not see this marriage happening. I think Ash will die either during or right after the wedding , leaving Victoria a very rich widow and owning the combined companies.

I was right – the big return of a Brooks sister that no one watching knows, to play here comes the bride on the piano. Maybe she and Jack will mention her long lost nephew, what’s his name…..

Matt Mathews,
Which nephew? Also, just pairing the names Leslie and Jack scares me. I can not see them as a couple but who knows?

Where are Billy’s and Victoria’s children? Why weren’t they at the wedding?

Renita Henson,
Shocked that we even got to see Harrison. They will probably show the two others later. I could not believe they were not there during the ceremony. Katie should have been a flower girl at least. With all the heavily decorated sets you would think they would have payed more attention to the wedding attendees.

Pity they didn’t ask Reid, Victoria’s son to the wedding. But then she didn’t involve Johnny or Katie either. Y and R didn’t even bother to include the day bit players for an in studio wedding…

Victoria was talking to Reed on the phone saying how sorry that he couldn’t be there.

It has been a bit dull around the Y&R, but admit a bit caught up in the Victoria/Ashland thing. I don’t exactly call it chemistry between the two, but see a connection with lots of possibilities and directions to take.

Thought the writers did a crazy but interesting thing with the wedding dress which provided a sharp turn for Sally. I couldn’t stand her when introduced to the show. Will see how the writing progresses.

Please get over this “Chance” thing!

Oh Tani, how right you are about dullsville. And what’s worse, all this wedding build up was a major letdown for me. I guess I expected some kind of DYNASTY wedding disaster from 1985. I expected Jesse Gaines to end up dead (sleazy guy but a kind-of sexy actor) and Ashland to be arrested or something. And how about that wacky priest! Even Sally couldn’t connect with that eccentric. What was CENTRAL CASTING thinking? And Chance has become practically a punchline. Does it take THAT LONG to find a decent replacement?

Days of our Lives Preview: Chad is Stunned When Clyde Says, “Abigail is Alive”

Next week on Days of our Lives, Chad (Billy Flynn) is in for the shock of his life, when while holding Clyde (James Read) at gunpoint, the man responsible for killing Chad’s beloved wife, Abigail says “I didn’t kill her. Abigail is alive!”

What?? Is DAYS about to bring back Marci Miller as Abigail Deveraux DiMera? Is Clyde just saying that so Chad won’t kill him, since he will need vital information of what really happened to Abigail? Meanwhile, what will happen with Harris Michael (Steve Burton)? We know that Burton is wrapping up his run very shortly on the Peacock streaming soap opera, since he last taped there in December of 2023.

In the latest promo for the series not only do we have the “Abigail” stunner, but it looks like Theresa (Emily O’Brien) is now hitting the sheets with Brady (Eric Martsolf), Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) no longer wants Alex (Rob Scott Wilson), and Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) and Konstantin’s  (John Kapeos) wedding is set to blow up. All this, now that DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing teams episodes have begun to air.  The week of June 3rd will be the first full week of scripts from the regular writing team since the writers strike.

Meanwhile, just when you think Rafe (Galen Gering) has got the goods on Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) for her part in the baby Jude baby switch, when he seethes “You will be punished.” She pipes up with  “Even if it’s at your sister’s expense.” Next, she is seen putting out her wrists for Rafe to cuff them. Then, we cut to a mighty pleased Melinda with her feet on her desk.

When the promo shift to Maggie and Konstantin’s wedding, we hear Maggie’s voiceover sharing,  “We have that snake right where we want.” As Bonnie (Judi Evans), Alex and Theresa look on.  What is the trap that Steve says has been set?

Photo: JPI

And as Eric (Greg Vaughan) shows up when Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) is trying to make her escape after her confrontation with Nicole (Arianne Zucker) at the DiMera mansioj, Eric says, “You let me fall in love with a child that doesn’t even belong to me.”  Sloan begins to say, “That’s not the whole story.” But we all know EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) is going to show up and do anything he can to keep Eric from knowing he is the biological son of baby Jude. Stay tuned.

Check out the latest Days of our Lives promo below. Now, let us know. Do you want it to turn out the Abigail is truly alive, or do you want the character to be ‘dead dead’ because in Salem we know the town has a history of resurrecting people who have gone to the great beyond or were believed to have gone there.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Preview: Nicole Gets Her Baby Back; Then Hauls Off and Decks Sloan

This week on Days of our Lives starts, what looks to be the next and final leg of the baby Jude, baby switch saga, and all of its deceptions. As viewers saw on last Friday’s episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera, Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) told Eric (Greg Vaughan) that Jude is actually Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) baby. Of course, that’s a half-truth as the bio-dad is Eric.

Trapped and in cahoots now with EJ, Sloan had to confess what she did to Eric. At the cliffhanger, Eric show up at EJ’s door with Jude in tow. In tears, he tells Nicole this is her baby, and hands it to her. What will go down when the show picks back up on Memorial Day with an all-new episode?

Eric doesn’t know he is the father, but EJ does. EJ also saw Nicole kiss Eric. He is going to do everything he can to keep the truth from coming out in an effort to keep his marriage in tact.

However, how long can EJ and Sloan keep this major secret? Leo (Greg Rikaart) and Dimitri (Peter Porte) are very much alive. Will one of them blow the final whistle on them? Right, Lady Whistleblower? Will Nicole and Eric learning they are the true parents of Jude, be the impetus for Nicole leaving town perhaps with Eric, since we know Arianne Zucker’s last episode of DAYS is set to air July 29th? Stay tuned.

Photo: JPI

Meanwhile in the latest promo for this week’s DAYS, Nicole and EJ introduce “their” baby to Holly (Ashley Puzemis), while Rafe (Galen Gering) confronts Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) who is playing dumb in all of this. Rafe asks her, “Are you saying you know nothing about the baby switch?” Melinda pretends she is completely shocked, saying, “Did you say baby switch?”

In the moment you’ve been waiting for, harkening back to when Nicole stole Sami’s (Alison Sweeneybaby for months, and the two finally had a showdown which saw Sami delivering bitch-slaps to Nicole, Sloan comes to the DiMera mansion to see Nicole.  Then, Nicole screams that she lost she lost six months with her son because of all of her lies. Next, Nicole hauls off and punches Sloan.  Elsewhere, Eric grabs Leo by his shirt collar, which will be interesting to see how much Leo fesses up on what he knows about the baby switch.

Watch the DAYS preview below.

Now let us know, are you happy to see Nicole get her baby back? Are you frustrated that the story is still going on and now its Eric who is the one in the dark, along with Nicole that he is Jude’s baby daddy? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
