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.

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn to be Featured in Alexis-Centric Episode to Mark Her Upcoming 25 Years on the ABC Daytime Drama

She is a two Daytime Emmy-winning actress, and one of the best that has ever graced the soap genre, and now General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) will have an episode devoted to her, and her soap opera alter-ego, next week on the ABC daytime drama series.

The episode has been scheduled to air on Wednesday, April 7th.

Grahn will celebrate her 25th anniversary with GH in September, but as the imminent milestone draws near, and with Alexis in story getting ready to begin a three-year stint in Pentonville, it sets up plenty of drama for the former legal eagle of Port Charles; who has had an enduring battle with booze.

 

According to Nancy, who spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, “I will say that she (Alexis) knows she can’t stop drinking unless she faces her life as it really is and not as she’s faked it thus far, and she is perhaps forcing a brutal bottom in order for her to rise again from the ashes.”

Viewers can look for Alexis to interact with many characters, plus a brand new character, and her on-screen daughters within the episode.

Grahn added to what fans will see, “I feel like this show is not so much about what Alexis discovers, but how that discovery and resolution will affect the heart of so many who watch it.  I feel that many will relate in a personal way.”

So, excited to see the Alexis-centric episode featuring Nancy? Comment below.

Faith, who previously has been turning to booze, then begins to drink out of a liquor bottle and has limited experience with getting behind the wheel of a car, a set-up for potential disaster.

 

Joshua Morrow, who spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now about the story teased, that Nick and Sharon try to track Faith down.  Morrow shared: “They’re the worst possible factors imaginable for your child to be in.  Nick and Sharon are desperate to find Faith, but they’ve been through this path before with Cassie. Will tragedy strike again?”

Check out this week’s promo from Y&R below.  In addition, below that ,check out the Michael Fairman Channel interview last summer when during Covid-19, the CBS Daytime drama series rebroadcast the episode of Cassie’s Death, and Michael spoke with Sharon Case, Joshua Morrow and Camryn Grimes (Ex-Cassie, now Mariah) about the emotional story.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Does Franco Have Planned For Peter … The Ultimate Revenge?

This week on General Hospital, the story picks back up on the night of the double-wedding debacle for Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton).

Last week’s Friday cliffhanger saw Franco (Roger Howarth) taking a crowbar to Peter’s head and knocking him out after realizing the voice in his head was that of Peter’s.

Meanwhile, Maxie who is in the hospital trying to ensure the safety of her unborn baby with Peter, is getting an earful on how far his deception has gone, and from all the people she knows and trusts.  Now, Anna (Finola Hughes) comes to see her God-daughter in the latest promo from ABC.

But the twist that many may, or may not, have seen coming is that Franco has taken Peter and tied him up which looks eerily familiar from when Franco’s mind-mapping took place and he was turned into Drew.

With Franco’s growing brain tumor, what is he capable of doing to Peter? Will he exact the perfect revenge on the guy?

Watch the latest teaser below.

Now weigh-in: what do you think Franco will do next? Share your theories in the comment section.
