For “Villains Week” on Y&R, here’s what to look for:

Wednesday, May 27, Stephanie (Flannery) is angry with Ann (Betty White) when she finds out she isn’t looking for her own house.

Friday, May 29, after his meeting with Bob Barker (Barker, playing himself), Liam (Clifton) interrupts a contentious exchange with his brother, Wyatt (Darin Brooks).

In return, Barker leaves a lasting impression on Wyatt when, in an homage to his role in “Happy Gilmore,” he punches Wyatt as Liam watches in amusement. Just shy of his 90th birthday, Barker did not use a stunt double. The episode originally aired August 28, 2014.

Not interested in some of the B&B episodes. I wish they’d do a Sally Spectra (Darlene Conley) week or a slapped by Stephanie week. 🙂

For Y&R, I want a Baldwin-Fisher week. The end of yesterday’s episode had me hooked. I want to see the next episode. It’s a been a long time since Y&*R gripped me like that.

Glaring omissions from the Y&R Villains Week —- An episode with Vanessa Prentess, Suzanne Lynch, or Rose DeVille. I know that you can’t fit an episode of every Y&R villain in only 5 days. However, these characters and several others (Shawn Garrett; Cameron Kirsten, to name just two) were far more noteworthy (and better written) than Ryder, the poorly created son of Sheila Carter.

Barbara I agree with you 100%. Let’s show more of the good old days of Y&R, like you said Vanessa Prentess, what a witch, lol…Oh my I forgot about Suzanne Lynch…Rose DeVille, mean, lol

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Susan Seaforth Hayes on the Horton Home Set on Fire: “This Was the (Home of the Family) Matriarch and the Patriarch. And Then There’s Tom’s Chair. What Will happen to Dr. Tom’s Chair?”

Coming up on Days of our Lives, what has been teased months ago, will finally stream on the Peacock soap opera. The beloved and iconic Horton house is about to burn possibly to the ground, after it is set on fire on the Friday, February 9th episode.

The story will pick up starting on the Monday, February 12th episode, which will find Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Chad (Billy Flynn) coming upon the scene as the living room is engulfed in flames.

As it will be revealed, a major vendetta against Chad, is the cause when viewers learn the the fire was no accident. In the major scenes, Doug (the late Bill Hayes, who was still taping episodes at DAYS several months before his passing), Julie, Chad and his kids, all go to safety outside and watch the iconic home burn.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Susan Seaforth Hayes previewed the devastating moment and just how hard it hits Julie. “Everybody has come and gone and had experiences there,” Hayes begins. “This was the (home of the family’s) matriarch and the patriarch. And then there’s Tom’s chair. What will happen to Dr. Tom’s chair?”

Hayes adds there is a touching scene when everyone makes it to safety, “There’s a nice sequence outside the house watching the house burn.” She elaborates,”It looks quite hopeless. There are ashes, smoke and filth… It’s a sad heap.”

This will wind up being a rebuilding project for Julie and the Horton legacy, as Susan shared, “Julie’s take on it after is determination to not lose the sense of the house, to not lose what was there emotionally.”

Look for Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) to step up and provide temporary roof over the heads of her beloved friends and relatives.

GH’s Adam Huss on Preparing for Nikolas and Spencer’s Reunion: “I Watched a Lot of Scenes of Tyler Christopher and Nicolas Bechtel, What a Beautiful Dynamic They Had”

This week on General Hospital, the long-awaited reunion of father and son will happen and when it does expect fireworks and plenty of drama. With Adam Huss back as the dark prince of the Cassadine clan and with Nikolas weaving a web to trap Esme (Avery Pohl) for all her misdeeds, he finally shows up in-person to see his son, Spencer (Nicholas Chavez).

It marks the first time the father and son have shared a scene together since since February 3, 2023, that is almost one year ago! So much has happened since that time. Is there any way the two can still forge any semblance of a relationship?

Previewing. the moment the two come face-to-face, Adam Huss told Soap Opera Digest Nikolas’ mindset: “I believe what transpires between them is sincere, and there is a sincere want and need from Nikolas to reconnect with Spencer. Which is why he is ready to face whatever he is going to face when it occurs. I also believe he would be willing to do whatever it takes in that moment to get what he needs. It’s definitely interesting, the direction it goes in.”

As for Nikolas’ bio-son. baby Ace, who has been raised by Esme and Spencer, Huss reveals; “He is not going to forget about his other son, especially if this other relationship (the one between Spencer and Nikolas) isn’t redeemable. If he cannot fix the strain that is between him and his other son, guess what? He’s got another heir.”

In preparing to slip back into the role of Nikolas and in particular for the big reunion, Huss shared he watched the classic scenes between the late Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas) and Nicolas Bechtel, when Spencer was younger. “I watched a lot of scenes between Tyler Christopher and Nicolas Bechtel. What a beautiful dynamic they had, especially in the scenes around the fire when Spencer got burned and Nikolas was at the hospital.”

As to the scenes with Nick Chavez, Huss added, Nick and I were really able to have a journey together, I feel, in the work, and when I think about these scenes, I’m excited to watch them.”
