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… Read more »

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 .

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

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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

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.
