Goblins and witches and ghosts, oh my! And no, we’re not talking about the millions of children who’ll be cavorting around as such on All Hallow’s Eve next week. We’re talking about the stars of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless,” “The Price Is Right,” “The Talk” and “Let’s Make a Deal,” as all five shows are featuring Halloween themed episodes on Thursday, October 31, complete with fun and creepy costumes!
“Y&R’s” spooktacular episode sees Faith visiting her grandfather, Victor (Eric Braeden), while she tricks or treats her dad, Nick (Joshua Morrow). But the fun really starts when Avery (Jessica Collins) confronts Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) about a life-changing secret may have planned on taking to the grave! Meanwhile, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and Adam (Michael Muhney) reunite as they await information regarding their son’s health, and Billy (Billy Miller) mourns for Delia during his first Halloween without his newly deceased daughter.
Over at “B&B,” lovers Bill (Don Diamont) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) take a step back from their mountain climbing excursion in Aspen for some sinful All Hallow’s Eve lovin’ — complete with a “bare” costume sure to set Bill growling!
Hot on the heels of TVGN’s “The Young and the Restless On-Set: inFANity” special celebrating the network’s acquisition of “Y&R” (whose same day evening episodes are moving from SOAPnet to TVGN beginning Monday, July 1 at 7PM ET/PT) comes the much anticipated “Countdown to the Young and the Restless” special, which features a live audience asking questions of the sudser’s biggest stars!
After over two decades of playing “General Hospital’s” Jason Morgan, beloved soap star Steve Burton decided to walk away from Port Charles for a break from the spotlight — only to turn around and join “The Young and the Restless” as Dylan McAvoy a few months later! Soap Opera Network caught up with the daytime vet during a special “Y&R” TVGN launch party, and he opened up about changing networks as well as fast becoming right at home in Genoa City.
The summer is looking good for “The Young and the Restless,” especially with this latest news: Fan favorite Michael Graziadei (Daniel Romalotti) is returning to the sudser for four episodes!
