Hunter King and Michael Mealor Set for a Visit on The Young and the Restless

Photo: JPI

Good news for “Skyle” fans who have been devastated that both Hunter King (Summer) and Michael Mealor (Kyle) exited The Young and the Restless when contract talks broke down.

Now comes word via Soap Opera Digest that King and Mealor are on their way back to the top-rated daytime drama for a visit.

Word is that Summer and Kyle are returning to Genoa City for a visit and the actors will tape their scenes this week.

Then, look for them to air on-screen sometime in October.

Y&R viewers recently saw King and Mealor wrap their run on the CBS Daytime drama series when Kyle met up with Summer in Italy.

So, glad to know that there is a little more Skyle on the way? Comment below.

Why? Just as I’m enjoying a Summerless sunmer!

I agree. Sick of both of them.

It’ll be a treat, but not enough. I would have liked a longer stay and a confrontation between Summer and Sally–and, between Summer and Tara; just to get some satisfaction. Summer should beg her grandfather to have Sally kicked to the curb. I was right about Tara from the first moment she appeared on stage with those red, languid eyes and trembling voice. I, also, said Stitch was the “nutso” behind Mariah’s kidnapping. His appearance was too much of a coincidence. As I said a few days ago, he wanted to be the hero, with the hopes that Abby would… Read more »

Yes, Celia, Stitch, sorry, “Ben” was my choice also but for different reasons. I thought he was going to steal the baby to spite Abby (in case he blamed her for Max’s deteriorating condition). Either way, it was a dumb story which I mostly FF’d through. I do like that Devon, at least, was suspicious while Sharon shrugged it off and Rey tried to blame Adam. You know I’m a big fan of Mark Grossman as Adam; the thought of him with Sally Spectra makes me reach for the TUMS. Not the small package, either… the big bottle from Costco!

HaHaHa—-my TUMS are prescribed, PROTONIX …..I know how you feel—Sally gives me heartburn, as well– that mouth.
Nonetheless, you know where this is going. As I said, the theme is “been there, done that”—too easy. Adam and Sally—getting the shivers. Yuck!!
Your Stitch theory is just as good—and, yes—dumb story. I am still trying to figure out the purpose it served. Perhaps Camryn needed some time off?
The picture of “hot couple” Moses and Faith strikes such a discordant note, the vision is starting to distort.

Soaphound,
I agree that I also thought Ben wanted the baby, but I hope we have seen the last of him, now that he’s on the run with his mentally ill son, which in itself is scary. My next crazy idea is that they will catch him, put him in jail and playing on the guilt Abby feels, asks her to take care of Max. I don’t think I could watch a SL with a situation like that. It was bad enough years ago when he was just a young kid but he must be a teen now, so wow!

They sure dropped the ball here, didn’t they? After Nina and Ashley showed such grandmotherly interest previously, neither one was there close to the birth or after.

Celia

I have a theory, Soaphound—-What if the whole kidnapping thing was contrived so that Mariah would be isolated from everyone in order to develop a closeness with the baby—-a closeness which may not have happened otherwise….that is, if she were among her “people”.
A ploy? She had no one with whom to talk except the baby.
Now, Mariah feels misplaced and desolate—she misses that connection, which is exactly what TPTB had in mind. Can you not just see it, LOL? —-Catfights and fisticuffs galore!!

Soaphound

I’m with you on that theory, Celia. Mariah didn’t seem to really bond with “Bowie” until her imprisonment. Now she’s breastfeeding? Hello! And if she’s gonna name him Bowie, let’s at least hear “Changes” or “Rebel, Rebel” on the soundtrack (but NOT sung by Tessa, thank you). This is so similar to the GH battle years ago between Maxie, Lulu, and Britt over Rocco. Until Victor gets involved, it’ll be deadly dull.

Celia

I know, my friend. I so miss Victor’s piercing, frigid looks, his brooding, his catch-me-if-you-can behavior….. Particularly, his not-so-up-to-par schemes. Victor seems to be focused on Ashland, albeit I do agree with him. At the risk of sounding repetitious, I did say Ashland has an agenda. And, I still think he and Tara were/are working together. I don’t even think he’s sick. “Joie de vivre” my foot. Joy of living? He’s waiting for that joy after he brings the Newmans down. Or so he thinks. I hope Sally partners with him so that they will both sink together. Ahhhh! Tessa,… Read more »

Best news to come out of y n r in awhile! Still awaiting the even better news once Josh Griffith and Tony Morina get the axe! Mealor and King shouldve been treated much better during negotioations, cbs and sony are garbage for running y n r the way it has been for the last decade. Budget sets, budget writers, budget music score. Besides the stars theres nothing recognizable about this once glamorous prime time worthy soap. The only reason fans continue to tune is for the stars like Michael and Hunter, certainly not for stories written by likes of Josh… Read more »

Well, they do need to wrap things up better than they do for most exiting actors. I’m loathe to see them leave, especially if Faith and Moses are supposed to be the new “hot couple”. And I feel bad for Jack, who looks lonesome already. I hope Michael shows up on GH or DAYS. He’s a real find and can go far.

Violet Lemm

Soaphound, They are getting desperate if TPTB are thinking of these boring and very tiresome teens being anything that resembles a “hot couple”.I almost feel sorry for Jack. Am afraid he may be falling into Red’s clutches again. The only good thing would be Nick getting away from her, finally. I hate the idea of Sally and Adam, or Sally and anyone.I was hoping once Tara went down that she’d be close behind, but now this. What will Nicki and Victor say when they see them together. The only couple I like is Victoria and Ashland which could really be… Read more »

My gosh, Violet, what is Abby (not) thinking with that catalog of names for the baby? Why not order the KICK ME HARD signs now…by the boatload! And what are we left with — Dom Chancellor? For short, what? Dommy? Dummy? What horrors! I thought “Bowie” could have easily slid into that bizarre panoply of names, but alas, no luck. Then to watch creepy Sally touching Adam’s pretty, perfectly coiffed hair while kissing him… nausea is too soft a word!

You are cracking me up, Soaphound!! Dommy!! Golly Gee—my favorite soap is going down the tubes. —-seems to me the show is written by Kindergartners. Phyllis!! I love her!! Always did, always will. And, she was the better Nina on GH,s well…( there should be a law against those stomach-churning, revolting, mouth to mouth scenes between her and Sonny). Michelle Stafford is the best soap actress on TV. Period. LOL. I am still very confused–who the baby’s parents are? Mariah, Devon, Abby and Chance? All of them will have a hand in rearing him? Dumbest story ever!! Same goes for… Read more »

Well, Celia, I agree about Michelle. For me, she and Maura West are the best, since we no longer see Kim Zimmer’s Reva, Elizabeth Hubbard’s delicious Lucinda Walsh, or spectacular Jane Elliott’s Tracy Quartermaine. Oh, I know what you mean about the YUCK factor with Nina and “Mike”. It’s some weird sort of new, all-time soap opera gross-out. He really thinks he’s hot stuff! There’s more heat in an Arctic freezer! And on Y&R, they might as well reserve a courtroom now for the custody fight…when Mariah presents her case for keeping Dom-Bowie, all she needs is to present Abby’s… Read more »

PS.
Maura West!! One of my favorites, also, Soaphound—definitely en par with Stafford.
Aside—Esme– she said she was adopted. The word sent tiny shocks down my nerve endings. LOL.
Could she be Ava’s or Nina’s? Nelle’s “missing” twin?
I shall bid you adieu for a bit—school starts Thursday in my district—so, a lot of adjusting and changes and settling ahead….
Poor kids still masked!!

Violet, didn’t you LOVE Nikki’s gleeful expression when Phyllis lit into Sally? Priceless! It was worth putting up with sleazo Billy illegally trying to one-up Adam AGAIN. And that “GALA” Launch Party of, what, nine people? Talk about tight budgets.

Soaphound,
OMG, Nicki’s smirky grin was priceless! Answer me this please. Why hasn’t Nicki or anyone else informed Victor of Sally’s involvement in sending Summer away from G.C.? He acts like he knows nothing about what all went on. Boy, Billy never gives up, does he, and why didn’t Nick do anything after catching him with his hands in the cookie jar?

Soaphound

Soaphound

You’ve got me, Violet. Why have they declawed Victor? “It was nice meeting you, Sally”. REALLY? Doesn’t ring true in the slightest. And Nick should have texted Adam ON THE SPOT about Billy’s illegal subterfuge! So much isn’t consistent lately. But, right now, I prefer it to the mob movie that GH has become.

Would be nice to have them back for the wedding and then go back to Italy.

Let’s not forget that Ben “Stitch” Rayburn’s sister was Kelly, the crazy lady who slept with Billy and then found her way into Jack’s bed and was part of the whole doppelgänger storyline. Lots of issues with that genetic DNA code. Fortunately the newest baby, DoMenic, has the DNA from Abby and Devon, or at least we hope!!!

Celia

Yes, Margherita, we hope. Yet, methinks there will be trouble down the road. I get this weird suspicion that Mariah is having separation issues. She’s in love with the baby.
That motherly instinct comes with the territory.
I guess I was not following the storyline as well as I should have. Was it Mariah’s egg or Abby’s? Confused.

Never liked their story lines i was glad they were gone they started all the crap with Sally then couldn’t handle it when ahe gave them a dose of their own medicine granted sally is something but Summer started the threats to tell about Sally’s past just because she couldn’t handle a little competition in the business world

I beg to disagree, Cissy. Sally is evil. Thst’s the difference. She came “to be” in GC through nefarious means. As far as I’m concerned, Sally is a fraud. Then, agsin, thst’s just my opinion.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.
