The latest theme week of episodes have been announced for CBS Daytime’s The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Coming up for the week of May 25th through May 29th, evil schemers take centerstage in Genoa City for “Villains Week”, while famous faces come to Los Angeles to greet the Forresters, Logans and Spencers during “Celebrity Week” ‘

Look for Eva Longoria (Ex-Isabella), Kimberlin Brown (Ex-Sheila), and All Rise’s Wilson Bethel (Ex-Ryder) to appear in memorable episodes of Y&R, while Bob Barker, Betty White, and Gina Rodriguez and Usher  come to B&B for special appearances.

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

Monday, May 25, the walls close in on the nefarious David Kimble (Michael Corbett); Traci (Beth Maitland) keeps a secret from Brad (Don Diamont); and Nina (Tricia Cast) comes out of hiding. The episode originally aired Oct. 7, 1991.

Tuesday, May 26, Isabella (former cast member Eva Longoria) and Christine (Lauralee Bell) settle unfinished business, while Paul (Doug Davidson) and Michael (Christian Le Blanc) unravel a mystery. The episode originally aired August 14, 2003.

Wednesday, May 27, Kevin’s (Greg Rikaart) revenge plot takes a dangerous turn, while Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Sharon (Sharon Case) fight for the spotlight at the Newman Ranch. The episode originally aired Oct. 10, 2003.

Thursday, May 28, Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) makes a surprise appearance during Lauren (Tracey Bregman) and Michael’s (Le Blanc) honeymoon, while John (Jerry Douglas) learns the truth about Gloria’s (Judith Chapman) past. The episode originally aired Dec. 15, 2005.

Friday, May 29, Lauren (Bregman) and Michael (Le Blanc) see double as they come face to face with Lauren’s imposter, while Kevin (Rikaart) races to save Jana (Emily O’Brien) from Ryder (Wilson Bethel, CBS’ ALL RISE). The episode originally aired April 27, 2010.

For “Celebrity Week” on B&B, here is the rundown:

Monday, May 25, Rick (Jacob Young) rallies an influential friend, Los Angeles Dodger Kiké Hernandez, to assist him in making one of his wife Maya’s (Karla Mosley) life-long dreams come true. Shot on location at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, when Karla Mosley actually performed as Maya, singing the national anthem before a game. The episode originally aired Sept. 12, 2016.

Tuesday, May 26, C.J. (Mick Cain) becomes jealous when Amber (Adrienne Frantz) invites her new friend, Raymond (Grammy Award winner Usher), to perform an original song at Insomnia. Though Amber is pleased, C.J. is chagrined when Raymond dedicates his song to her. Meanwhile, Lauren (Tracey Bregman) gleefully tells Sally (Darlene Conley) that Eric (original cast member John McCook) and Stephanie (Susan Flannery) are history. The episode originally aired June 11, 1998.

Wednesday, May 27, Stephanie (Flannery) is angry with Ann (Betty White) when she finds out she isn’t looking for her own house. Ann admits she wants to stay in the Forrester guest house because she wants to be a part of the family. Stephanie is upset and wants to send her back to Chicago, but Eric (McCook) refuses. Pam (Alley Mills) gives Eric the comfort that Stephanie denies him, leading Ann to believe that Eric’s relationship with Pam is the reason he wants them to stay in Los Angeles. The episode originally aired Feb. 27, 2007.

Thursday, May 28, intern and aspiring fashion designer Beverly (played by Gina Rodriguez in her first role) stands her ground when Forrester Creations designer Amber (Frantz) issues her a “friendly warning” to stay away from Rick (Jacob Young). In Cabo, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) urges Thomas (then played by Adam Gregory) to commit to Hope (then played by Kim Matula) while trying to keep Liam (Scott Clifton) from finding out that Hope is staying at the same resort. The episode originally aired Dec. 28, 2011.

Friday, May 29, after his meeting with Bob Barker (Barker, playing himself), Liam (Clifton) interrupts a contentious exchange with his brother, Wyatt (Darin Brooks). Wyatt follows Liam, determined to continue their argument, and makes a negative first impression on Barker. 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.

While all this is going down remember on Friday’s cliffhanger, Liam thought he walked in on Thomas and Hope kissing.  What he actually saw was Thomas making out with the Hope mannequin!  Leave it to dark lighting to cause the misinterpretation in true soap opera fashion!

Then, as viewers saw, Liam hightailed it to Steffy’s setting up a moment between the exes which is sure to have ramifications for Hope, Thomas, and Finn (Tanner Novlan).
