THIS WEEK: Jason Thompson Featured In Standalone Episode of Y&R

Photo: JPI

As Billy (Jason Thompson) has been battling his inner demons and an alternate personality had emerged, which was caused by his deep vendetta with Adam Newman (Mark Grossman),  and the loss of his daughter Delia.

Now, The Young and the Restless is going to explore that deeper with Jason Thompson front and center in his own Billy-centric standalone episode set to air this Tuesday, September 17th.  The hour will focus on Billy grappling with his emotional trauma.

For weeks now, Billy has not been acting like himself as tried to kill Adam, and later was taken to a cabin by Kevin (Greg Rikaart) and Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) to try to get him stabilized.  However, Billy does not remember when this dark version of himself emerges as he sets out to get at Adam.

In the latest promo for Y&R, Billy is seen choking himself as both he and his alter-ego seem to battle it out.  Look for others to appear in the episode along with Thompson including: Peter Bergman (Jack), Jess Walton (Jill), and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis)

In the hands of the incredibly talent Thompson, we know this will be a can’t-miss performance, as Jason always delivers and gives 110% to his work.

Check out the promo here ….  which also features Victor’s((Eric Braeden) life and death situation, and then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing the standalone episode with Jason via the comment section below.

Jason has been KILLING it as Billy!! I hope the recent rumours of Billy Miller returning are false. Dont get me wrong…I like Miller, but during his last yesr or so at Y and R, and basically his entire tenure at GH, he was just sleepwalking (ironic) through his parts. Millers version of Billy was more a man child, but the character has changed snd matured. Jason plays an adult Billy. He still has that reckless, inmature side, but its different. Some of his scenes with this alter ego have been chilling and haunting! He is definitely a front runner for Lead Actor Emmy! I hope he doesnt get rewarded with a pink slip! The chemistry with him and Amelia as Victoria is also off the charts! I look forward to this episode! The writing in this story has been layered and sophisticated. I am impressed all around!

I absolutely agree!

Agreed 100% I didn’t like Miller’s character was a bit to childish

I think if they even attempted to do that to Jason I think viewers would be throwing a fit their ratings are already in the tank over some choices they have made .

Agree

I agree as well I said the same about what I called the Phyliss exchange. I was so use to Gina and and what she did with the character that I am still trying to get use to Michelle Stafford I love Jason and Amelia together I to was team Miller. but since the the whole JT situation I felt the chemistry between them and I am hooked. Hoping another switch does not occur. I loving Jason as Billy

I agree.

I absolutely agree!!

Great Job Jason!

I see an Emmy for Jason. Its about time!

Yes i am should be awesome

NuAdam creeps me out.

Ugh, cannot stand him. He is so cold, I can feeling nothing for him but “just go away”

Theo creeps me out. Just the mere mention of his name makes my skin crawl. Now I know this sounds like a stupid question, but is Victor really dead, or does Nate have him in hiding somewhere and is Abby going to be manless yet again. As an on and off viewer since the mid eighties, and a steady one for the past 6 or so years, it will be weird not seeing Victor go off on his rants. Time will tell I guess. And on a side note, I like the pairing of Abby and Nate. But I have a feeling both Abby and Devon will get broken hearts when Nate and Devon’s girlfriend (I always forget her name), wind up with each other. The way they are always talking shop you know it’s coming sooner or later Thanks for listening and happy viewing everybody

Don’t worry they are setting Adam up you could not get rid of Braeden with a crowbar he thinks he is the show just like MB over on GH ! It’s a ensemble effort that makes it work always has always will be. Why JG is still hung up on this Delia stuff I guess his hatred for Pratt’s version of the story years ago but I think he needs to wrap it up. Hartley was never Adam to me just never cared for his version

I always thought Michael Michal Muney was wonderful as Adam. Loved his chemistry with Chelsea. Loved the whole story of their beginning, where he helps her get her GED and then dresses her for a formal party, (Iforgot what the party was for) and than he proposed to her in the rain. Loved it. Thanks for listening and thanks for the info. Happy viewing. And I agree with you on the Delia story. Enough is enough,

Miller doesn’t have the gravitas that Jason has.

Jason is a much better Billy than Miller was.. He is by far better.
Jason is a power acter. He delivers every time.
Looking forward to the episode.
I have no complaints about Jason/Billy.
Well, ahh one.
He sits with his legs spread so far apart yah could park a Volkswagen between them, that irritates me LOL ..

Also- I like the switches of Nina and Phyllis..
I like the new Nina better than MS’s and am loving MS back where she belongs as Phyllis!!
As for Billy Miller- GH did him wrong, terribly wrong. Wasted a great talent.

Congratulations Sharon Case on your 25 yrs. On the Young & The Restless you’re the best at what you do so keep up good work sharon!!

No doubt Jason is awesome but for the life of me-as much as I detest the character of Adam (the only time I liked him was when Justin Hartley played the role) Adam DID NOT deliberately set out to kill Delia! OMG, Billy made so many mistakes that led to her death, i.e taking the dog to the event, leaving her & the dog in the car alone when he stopped for ice cream and not locking them in! Adam very clearly stopped the car & got out & looked & saw the dog running off. He did not know he hit Delia. He was distraught over Connor’s diagnosis that he was gonna be blind like Hope. BUT when Adam found Delia’s scarf on the front of his car he kept quiet. Yes, that is horrible (i.e. B&B everyone keeping quiet about Hope’s baby) but NOT a crime. And Adam knew he was so hated that nobody would believe he didn’t kill Delia. So I am a bit over this business of Adam killing Delia. I mean, come on, he is a loving father, regardless of everything else & would never do that. I am sick of this.

I will probably get a lot of grief over this, but I found the whole Billy thing rather boring. I’ve heard of fighting demons, but this was a little over the top.
And come on, when and where did Victoria earn her Psychiatrist degree? It was just too unreal for me.Otherwise, Jason did a good enough job with the script he was given.

Forgot to mention that Delia’s corneas ended up in Connor’s eyes- GOOD LORD. How would Adam admit that he hit Delia in those circumstances! Lose/lose for Adam.

Was that the original actress that played Delia that was in this episode?

I watched the show and all I have to say is this: JASON BLEW ME AWAY!!!

This was hands down the best work I have seen Jason do to date. He is guaranteed an Emmy nomination…..they might as well just give him the gold now.

Also, this was by far the best episode Y&R has put out there in YEARS!! The writing was brilliant, directing was superb, the camera work was well done and the other cast members brought their A game and lastly, the special effects they used to show Billy falling to pieces was really cool.

I cannot wait to see what happens to Billy from here on out.

Cracks me up so many people assumed that Billy Miller was going to immediately go to Young and the Restless and “steal” poor Jason Thompson’s job. That’s what I actually read online. I think people should wait and see exactly what is going to happen first before assuming that. Right now, Billy Miller is doing a prime time role. If he does decide to ever go back to soaps,(and he may not) Maybe he will go to another soap altogether. Actually, being a big Billy Miller fan, I would prefer he does that rather than going to Young and the Restless or go back to GH. I don’t watch Y&R, but I wish Jason Thompson the best. He seems like a nice guy.

Jason Thompson is a great actor but this fighting demons story line is really depressing. When his family members including his dead child are telling him he is worthless and to run away, all I could think of is I hope no clinically depressed person is watching this. I hope Y & R has a public service announcement advising people to seek mental health treatment with a phone number for mental health services if they are in a dark place and I hope Billy resolves his issues by going to a qualified mental health practitioner.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Preview: What Will Diana Tell Leo? Is John Really His Father?

This week on Days of our Lives, Judith Chapman is back for a one-day stint as Diana Colville when her son, Leo (Greg Rikaart) visits her in prison.

In story, Diana was sent to the slammer, for back in 2019 she tried to murder Marlena (Deidre Hall), and at the time she admitted (or claims) she falsified the DNA tests that originally proved the John Black (Drake Hogestyn) was Leo’s father. Leo turned his back on his mother and has not seen or spoken to her again.

However, recently Leo has visited Marlena as his shrink to try to get to the bottom of why he is the way he is. Upon Marlena’s suggestion, she advises him to see his mother.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest on her upcoming key scenes, Chapman expressed, “Diana was not happy about him going to Marlena for help and Leo is like, ‘Yeah, Mom, I’m figuring this out because you messed me up so much in my life.'”

Judith teased,“She (Diana) stays in control so she’s not breaking down but her facade definitely cracks. By the time we finished the scenes, everybody who was in earshot started applauding. I thought it was just a token, ‘Oh, welcome back, Judith,’ but it was because Greg and I apparently knocked it out of the park. The director came out, threw her hands up and was like, ‘You did it, you did it!’ Greg and I hugged and just clung to each other for 15, 20 seconds.”

Make sure to tune-in to the Tuesday, June 25th of the Peacock streaming soap opera to see the showdown between Leo and Diana.

So, do you think Leo is John’s biological son after all? Do you think Diana will reveal something else that will help Leo figure out why he does the things he does? Are you excited to see Judith and Greg in scenes again, after years as Y&R mother and son, Gloria and Kevin, and then on Days as Diana and Leo?

Check out our recent Daytime Emmy Red Carpet interview with Greg below. Then, let us know your theories in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Preview: After Tracy Takes Incriminating Photos of Finn; It All Points to Him Losing Custody of Violet

It’s clear that General Hospital is headed towards really taking Finn (Michael Easton) all the way down to the depths of despair, when his family and friends, while trying to do the right thing and protect his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love), from any harm, are also setting the guy up for a real punch to the gut.

Thus far, Finn started drinking heavily after his father Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Now, it looks like his daughter will be taken away from him.

In story on the Friday’s June 19th episode, after Finn cuts his hand accidentally on broken glass, he ends up passing out on the floor from excessive drinking. Violet comes upon her dad, and ends up calling Tracy (Jane Elli0t). When Tracy shows up, she calls the paramedics, who inform her that the issue with Finn is he drank too much.

Once Violet goes over to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard), Tracy goes back to Finn’s and takes photos on her phone of Finn passed out, a bottle of booze, the glass and the entire scenario.

So, between Brook Lynn, Chase and Tracy, it looks like Finn will not stand a chance at keeping custody of Violet, unless one of them sticks up for the good doc? In true soap-fashion, it would seem most likely, a court will grant temporary custody to Brook Lynn and Chase, setting up some kind of emotional full custody battle down the line? Stay tuned.

If you caught the end of the Friday, June 21st episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, after having a headache, and thinking of Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), Hope (Annika Noelle) is in for a real surprise when Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) is at her office door and runs into her arms.  An overjoyed Hope, then sees Thomas walk into the room saying, “Hello, Hope.”
