Jamison Jones to Debut on Y&R as Jesse Gaines

Photo: IMDB

Coming up, look for more drama in the Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) drama on CBS’ top-rated soap, The Young and the Restless.

As originally reported by Soap Opera Digest, on September 21st, attorney Jesse Gaines hits Genoa City and he may have damaging information on Locke or something the Newmans could use against him.

Portraying Jesse will be Jamison Jones, who is familiar to daytime fans having spent time on Days of our Lives, twice, General Hospital in three different roles, and a host of primetime gigs.

In story, Victoria is planning to wed Ashland, which nobody is for, and it may be possible that Gaines has some intel to rock the relationship and more.

So, intrigued to see Jamison take on attorney Jesse Gaines? Comment below.

Please, not ANOTHER guy for Victoria! Or maybe he’s for Lily, since he and Billy seem headed for the skids. I’ve recently decided to be more patient with new characters, even when some of my faves (Lauren, Kevin, Gloria, Traci, Ashley, Jill) are on rarely. So we’ll see. But if Tara, Sally, and Amanda’s unconvincing family are a gauge, we’re in boredom land again.

Hi, I think it’s this person that’s sending Ashland texts about how he’s been hard to track down, etc I don’t like his looks.

The Jesse Gaines guy will be a roll-through..
He’ll be gone quickly/before 2 months……
I like Ashland —
and Victoria is a deceiving conniving botch and I’m waiting for her put-down lol
She deserves something back on her…..
Billy is coming off as a ‘scorned woman’; ahaa!
_______I’d like a face-odd between Ashland and Victor!!
Of course, Victor would win, he never loses,
but still would be fun…
And to mention–
Abby/the baby story is worse than the music box story = beyond awful!

I agree the Abby story is horrible. Either replace Chance or kill him off this storyline has gone on way too long.

Would love for it to be an attorney that can also mix it up with Michael and Christine. Throw lawyers Amanda and Imani in it too.
Y n r needs intelligent , complex stories written by someone with half a brain
The current writers can only write highschool hi jinx featuring Phyliss, Sally and Abby and the babysitters club. Silly really. They cant even write a story for a sweet highschool crush between Moses and Faith. Geez

Is this the person that’s been sending Ashland texts that apparently have him worried enough to have him spill his guts to Victoria?

You were right, Violet, and the guy seems as unappealing as predicted, based on the preview. I was starting to warm to Ashland a bit, mostly because he’s such a good actor. But…I think Victoria is backing another loser.

Iam wondering if this Jones guy gets killed and we’ll have a another whodunit with Amanda strutting her stuff as defence attorney?

The entire Amanda storyline is going no where, how long do we wait for a trial that will never be seen on air?

Matthew, I think they may be waiting for the people involved to learn how to act. Compared to wonderful Mishael Morgan, they look like dinner theater amateurs.

They might be waiting a long time! That kid who plays Devon STILL cannot act!

That kid is 33 years old and I think he plays as good as he’s given. When did he and Abby become bestsys as she’s always saying? I wonder if Chance doesn’t return, they will throw them together. I don’t like he and Amanda together but I think he and Elena were more compatable as they are in real life.

EVERY actor he is in a scene with or has a relationship with is boring! I’d rather watch Victor trim his mustache!

Yes, most of his co- stars are boring as are their story lines. Not his fault. As I said, he plays as good as he’s given. I am also probably one of the few who doesn’t care for M.Morgan.

They were together at one time but it didn’t last

He’s not a kid! I like Devon!!!

Your call and your right. That’s why ice cream shops carry more than one flavor. Enjoy!

This is another storyline just dragging on and not picking up any interest.

Saw potential for the Victoria storyline. In the beginning it seemed it might be a take-over attempt of Newman and Jabot with Tara and the child involved. Now still see potential with a May/December kind of relationship, but perhaps it will get dark with underworld type connections. A little to much potential rematching with Jack/Phyllis, Sharon/Adam or Nick which seems to be inferred.

One good story can hold me; just not sure where it is now.


This story line seems to be the most exciting we’ve had in a long time, a little like the story of Brad Carlton having taken over someone else’s identity. I can’t wait for the big reveal, whatever it is. I do like Ashland and hope he is not scamming the Newmans, and how does Victor know this Jesse Gaines? Will any of them pay him off before Nick and Phyllis solve this mystery?

I guess I am replying to myself. No where to make comments on
Victoria’s wedding which is the biggest thing on Y&,R these days. I happen to like Ashland and hope the wedding goes off as planned but Billy and his cohort will most likely screw things up. He’s obcessed and so jealous that he can’t see straight. Maybe they can lock him up in a shed or whatever until the wedding is over. I said I liked Ashland and as much as I want he and Vic to get married, I predict he will have an attack of some sort, if not during the ceremony, than right after, making Victoria a very rich widow, before she really had the chance to be a real bride.

You know, Violet, this Jamison Jones playing Jesse Gaines turned out to be a very good actor, whatever we might think of Gaines himself. What a treat, especially since some recurring characters, like Amanda’s mother and grandpa, aren’t very good at all. I’m anxious for the wedding, also. It’s the only thing going right now.

He’s baaaaak. Looks like he rose from the ashes. Wonder how he ever got back to Genoa City?

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.
