THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Will Nick & Billy’s Plan To Lure J.T. Out Of Hiding Work?

This week on The Young and the Restless, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Billy (Jason Thompson) join forces to set a trap for J.T. Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill).  From all of the clues it would appear that J.T. is very much alive.

Will this mark the return of Thad Luckinbill, who was spotted in recent weeks on the set of the top-rated daytime drama series? Is little Katie’s secret playmate actually J.T. who has been spying on the Newman family?

According to Soap Opera Digest in the latest issue on newsstands now, Joshua Morrow explained, “To lure J.T. out of hiding their plan is to create this false narrative, so if J.T is listening it will lead him to think that ladies, (Victoria, Nikki, and Sharon) are at the Dark Horse Warehouse.”

It appears the guys use a bug-finding device to help locate how J.T. may have been spying on the family, and then turn it around and use it against him to set him up.

As viewers know,  Sharon  (Sharon Case) was sentenced to three years in prison, while Victoria (Amelia Heinle) got five and Nikki  (Melody Thomas Scott) got 30 years in the slammer for J.T.’s murder. They are now being taken by a van to Lakewood Correctional Facilities where they’ll begin their sentences.  But …. it’s Nick and Billy to rescue!

Watch this promo for this week’s action on Y&R below.  Then let us know, are you looking forward to the return of J.T.? What do you think will happen next? Share your theories in the comment section.

Redeem JT pls!!!!!
Make Paul somehow involved in his disapearance!
On side note..not happy about the rewrite flashback that Arturo slept with Mia indeed!?.
But on positive note very content finally that the old classic rich musical scores have been dusted off. Add so much emotion to the scenes! Thank u ptb

Damn it! I want Mia to pay for her crimes. I am appalled Rey is turning a blind eye to her latest crime which resulted in the near death of his baby sister. He has said she has a history of anger-induced crimes for which he had to cover-up. Mia is a danger to society and Rey knows it. He’s a hypocrite in the worst sense of the word because he pretends to be this great protector of the law. Paul Williams would never have sunk so low. If Mia is really pregnant with Aruto’s baby, then why did that… Read more »

Damien, I am too so happy about the music and YES it adds so much emotion to the scenes…I really enjoyed the tribute for Melody Thomas Scott for they brought all the beautiful classic background music for that episode, I also notice they are adding new music and utilizing it more…I am so THANKFUL that the upper brass listened and a BIG THANK YOU to Anthony Morina, Josh Griffith and Mike Dobson.

I never believed JT was dead—ever!! Many of us didn’t!! Tessa is involved and possibly Kerry.
Now about Mia. As I had predicted, Mia is desperately in need of a baby—enter Arturo….the idiot will get hooked one way or the other.
She knows it is too late for her and Rey—-her wiles will not work on him. She will either seduce Arturo or drug him!! Voia’ !!….one Rosales baby coming up.
Jimmy ( Jimh), how does this sound? Let me know. LOL. Are you still watching Y&R? You were one of the few who believed JT was still alive.

OH how I wish this Mia pregnancy story line would end, Celia. If I have to see Mia flopping around the apartment in her short, satin nightie one more time, I am going to scream into my pillow. She keeps saying how ambitious and driven she is but every time I see her she is lying around in the aforementioned sleeping attire in the middle of the day. Most likely that other beast Summer will be pregnant and Beast #2 (Mia) will steal her baby and claim it as her own. But how to explain the blond hair and blue… Read more »

Hi, Tani, Good to hear from you…. Yes, it is the only way. I think we’re all tired of the JT mess. There’s no drama, no anticipation, no thrill to be had. It all there to see. No reading between the lines. At least, unlike Marlena ( DOOL), these women are not the fabled “damsels in distress”—how many lives does Marlena have? Over and over and over– I must say, as the Zach storyline, this is a horrid plot. I only hope Tessa and Kerry are somehow embroiled in this caca–and they’ll be carted off to jail with JT–or the… Read more »

I’m over JT and the three inmates! Plus, the vial and evil Phyllis walked over all three of them. She is so unlikable! She threatens anyone she is talking to! Speaking of threatening, Lola takes the cake for Phyllis J.R.! She treats Kyle like crap! How can you been in love with someone who questions everything you do and doesnt trust you? I NEVER thought I’d say this but him and GLUMMER are better together. You know she will get pregnant and Lola will pop a kidney over this whole deal Kyle put in motion! The new Abbott/Newman baby should… Read more »

I know, right, T? Yet, when we think about it, Kyle is a dirty, rotten selfish piggy!! What kind of man would not blink an eye having Summer undergo such delicate surgery–playing with her organ ( oops, sorry, these puns just keep popping up, LOL) without flinching? So selfish of him. Summer is the sacrificial lamb….she is to be admired….this coming from me—I never liked Summer for her entitlement. But, I believe she does love Kyle. She’s changed, somehow. By the same token, Timmmy, Kyle is in love with love. He is another spoiled brat…. He will soon confront his… Read more »

Guest

CC, here is what I think happens. Summer has the surgery. She lapses into a comma. She is pregnant. Obviously Phyllis and Victor freak out not only because Summer gave up her kidney, she is pregnant with an ABBOTT baby and is in a coma! Meanwhile the actress is probably going off to film her night time show. Kyle doesnt get Lola and deals with all his critics heat and like you said, realizes that he does love Summer and feels like complete crap!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Sounds good, T. If Summer is, indeed, pregnant, no one will know–too soon….unless she and Kyle slept together before their wedding night? If they did, I missed it. LOL. This new develpment, if true, complicates matters. I hope she wakes up for the baby’s sake. Kyle seemed to have asked Nate how Summer was doing as an after-thought. I can’t stand him right now. He should have never agreed to this ‘pact’. He actually jeapordized someone’s life for the sake of another! Me no like that!! It is at this moment Kyle figures out he loves Summer—Lola simply represented a… Read more »

Well, when soap writers do not know to with female characters they have three choices: 1. They become pregnant. 2 They go into a coma 3. They go crazy and 4. all of the above. I guess that makes four choices.

Harry
Guest
Harry

Timm, I almost always agree with you on issues relating to soaps. This is that rare time when I must disagree with you. Summer is lazy, self-entitled, spoiled, manipulative, morally-challenged and greedy. She wants what she wants without earning it. Kyle was the same way before he met Lola. I mean, Lola had him at the food truck and later, with the black grease on her face resulting from her trying to fix the food truck. Basically, Lola had Kyle at hello. Once Kyle met Lola he started to strive to be a better person–he stopped betraying his dad, for… Read more »

Harry, I never thought I’d pick Summer over anyone but Lola just pushes and yells and that to me is a big turn off. Summer is all that you say she is but she loves Kyle and that should count for something. Kyle is is a Jack Jr.! Jack was an SOB when he was younger and now Kyle gets to do that! I think most things on soaps go against romanticism. Its a soap! When romance is so powerful and you are pulling for this big relationship and root for both the man and women, its called a “Super… Read more »

Celia
Guest

I tend to think, Jay, that JT is not the real JT. I have said it before—I am probably wrong—-however; if Thad ( JT) is in GC to stay, then my theory makes sense.
The real JT may be ‘hidden’ somewhere with Tessa’s help. Zach is the fake JT?( a’ la Faison?). LOL…I know; I’m stretching it!!
If JT is real, he simply took the wrong turn to looney-tune, ergo, his maniacal behavior. So, his resurrection is happening for one reason only–to exculpate the women.

Celia I have also thought that J.T was alive, especially whgen we heard that T.L was back on set. Remember months ago when he claimed to be taking pills for a heart condition? Looks like now it might have been a brain tumor instead. His collapse today, sure looked that way. It would also explain the change in his personality. A thought about Summer, and have also read that she’s pregnant with Billy’s baby, though that happened quite a few weeks ago, and she would or should have known by now. If she knew, would she really risk it to… Read more »

Guest

Right, Violet. Summer would have to be soulless to put her body through this travail if she were aware of a pregnancy.
To be honest, I had completely forgotten about her “stint” with Billy. I can never keep up with the bed-hopping on soaps. It’s a wonder no one contracts a disease!!
I thought the same thing when JT collapsed. As you say, we had all assumed that the pills were responsible for his crazy behavior—-but, it does look like he is suffering from a brain tumor—benign or malignant, they do present similar symptoms. Oh, those tumors—such scapegoats!! LOL.

Tani Sterling

Agree with Damien; bring Paul back!

Please end this JT mystery. Haven’t seen today’s program, but the count of those possibly imprisoned has fallen into the absurd: Lilly, Nikki, Victoria, Sharon.

Off message and not usual from one who finds Y&R love scenes appearing too often and often too clumsily done, the wedding was incredibly tasteful. The setting, flowers, dress, ring, vows, and upstairs conclusion. Even the camera angles appeared carefully done. For me, all came together beautifully regardless of the circumstance.

Wanna know what I loved about this storyline? It’s that it wasn’t wrapped up in a mere 2 or 3 months. I don’t care if there are viewers that say certain stories went too long when they only went a few months. The old way of telling stories was that we waited and waited for the payoff and when it finally came, it was like the best thing in the world happened. Thanks for stretching this story out for nearly a year. It has been fun for me taking this long ride!!!

I also agree James…I don’t understand people saying it’s taking so long to wrap up stories…I have been watching soaps since the middle 70’s and just like James said, the old way of telling stories was that we waited and waited with a payoff. I DID NOT like Mal Youngs way of writing and am so thankful he is no longer with Y&R…A lot of people love Ron C writing, not me and I didn’t care for GH while he was writing and don’t watch DOOL because of him.

I get what you’re saying, Kevin, I really do…..but, where’s the pay off here? At the risk of sounding repetitious, there never was any aura of mystery surrounding this silly story. I awaited for a climax, but it never came. As soon as I figured out JT was alive; I lost interest. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Everyone of us, more or less, knew what would happen next…..And, while I’m not a fan of a rushed storyline myself; this one was not enjoyable. No hills and vallies—flatlined. It was not pieced together sensibly, but rather blotches of writing… Read more »

Hi Celia, you DID NOT sound abrupt so no apology needed and your comments are appreciated…I didn’t make myself clear, in general one waits for the payoff of a very well written story in the glory days of Y&R when Bill Bell and Kay Alden were writing the show and I have to mention the late great Douglas Marland, when Douglas wrote Guiding Light I was hooked and clued to the TV, lol… this mess that Mal created is about to end, AMEN…Have a great rest of the week Celia and upcoming weekend…

hey Celia 🙂 !
The stupidest women on earth are soap women/characters.

They need to protect themselves and they do nothing.
they needed to have secured the entrances with furniture in front of doors..
they needed to set a couple of noise boobytraps..

Everything they did was beyond braindead, they should have been taken down for being so stupid bwahaaa..

Hi, Kevin,
I am sorry if I sounded abrupt…..as an afterthought, it is the last thing I want to do……I have always appreciated your comments, you know that……and you are always the gentleman.
I will say, that I have a newfound respect for Nikki, Victoria and Sharon. They have proven themselves to be strong women, who did not fall apart ….they stoically accepted their fate. If nothing else, this storyline gave these women strength and an iron will to survive in the worst circumstances.
Oh–correction: valleys, not vallies. At 2 AM, I might experience a little brain freeze. LOL.❤️

Those 3 were left with No protection from Billy and Nick.

((they are billionaires a system is relatively inexpensive)) 3( the women, instead of turning circles going oh my oh my oh my- should have been protecting themselves.

I have always detested “murder” story lines that involved main characters because either the character has done it and are written off or they have to find a reason to get the main characters out of jail- which they do– so in the meantime I have to endure the fake drama of a trial– which are usually so badly written and not realistic legally– and after all that the character gets off. The only story line I hate worse than main characters killing someone, are characters dying, but are not really dead. So this one combined both- so that should… Read more »

Well, I don’t know where Violet and Celia live, but all three of us commented on JT and perhaps a Brain Tumor might explain his actions. Looks like I was the last, time wise, to respond, but recognized the scar on his chest when the heart affliction was mentioned months ago. That doesn’t explain a brain tumor, but medical conditions can manifest in many ways. This is meant to be funny: I had not read the other comments when I wrote. Somehow Kyle and Summer’s presentations pre wedding, during, and after shifted my feeling about both of them. Credits to… Read more »

Tani,
Don’t know about Celia, but I live in a San Diego suburb. Funny, I had forgotten about J.T’s chest scar. Hopefully, it doesn’t show that his brain problem, from Nicki wacking him over the head, and leaving it untreated all this time, is the reason for whatever is wrong with him now. They wouldn’t let her off for trying to protect her daughter, they surely would consider this a cause of death, if he dies.

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL….Tani and Violet,
I live in Suffolk County, NY—Southampton, to be exact.
Yes, the blow Nikki delivered on JT’s head could have caused some issue with his brain—blood clot that went unchecked; an old injury; an already existing tumor which was undiagnosed…..and, of course, the blow to his head!!
This is a Mickey Mouse court—-the only crime these women committed was covering up the so-called crime.
And, Violet? You are absolutely correct. If JT dies, Nikki will surely be the sore loser–literally. Such dumb writing. No Jury would have found the women guilty. Such tepid argument given by that nun, Christine. LOL.

I wanted to ask if you think JT will die?? Do you really think the blow caused the tumor?
His behavior was off-to-pasture before that fateful night—perhaps the blow may have aggravated the tumor.
You know the PTB will give an unjustified diagnosis anyway….we shall see how on target they are this time.
This was an exhilarating read; to say the least, Violet!! LOL.

My thought on J.T is that he had a pre-existing condition when he returned to G.C., explaining his change in behavior, not only with Victoria, but with the ex-wife too. As you said, he was way off base before, but his trying to get back with Victoria just exacerbated his problem. He was never as hostile like he was this time, with the Newmans, especially Victor. I don’t remember it being like that, when they were married.

Friendship has no age limit. One of my “bestest” friend ( LOL) is my Grandmother. She is so funny and down to earth. She just says it like it is and makes no apologies.
She has always instilled into her grandchildren ( she has sixteen) that if someone has an issue with our “person”, the problem is not ours, but the person’s (with the issue)…..

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”
