Young & Restless Preview: Billy and Lily Ponder Publishing the Scoop of Lifetime — and Lauren Rails Against Chloe
Billy couldn’t stop the wedding but has another opportunity to take Ashland down.
In a Young & Restless preview for the week of October 18 – 22, though they said, “I do,” Victoria and Ashland’s problems are far from over. Read on for the details and watch the teaser video.
Upon arriving in Italy, Billy was stunned to learn that Ashland had already confessed his crimes to Victoria and she was going through with the wedding. After Gaines threatened Ashland, he turned to Victor to deal with his nemeses. Before the wedding began, Gaines went missing, only to later be found by Nick. Nick locked him up, and after the wedding, took Adam and his father to deal with Gaines.
In the preview for next week, Victoria questions her father about Gaines, who she knows wants to get revenge against her husband. She demands to know how he’s been handled. What neither realizes, but will soon discover, is Gaines may have the last laugh!
While locked up, Gaines sent Billy a cellphone video detailing all of Ashland’s crimes with proof to back up his allegations. He told Billy he had one hour to publish it, or else he’d take it elsewhere. Lily and Billy have a major decision to make… one that could help take Chance Communications into the big time, but at the same time have major consequences for Ashland and Victoria. As they discuss the situation, Jack happens upon them. Whatever they decide to do, the world may learn Ashland’s secrets one way or another.
In spite of the fact that Victoria uninvited him to her wedding, Nick went to Italy to try and make amends with his sister. She allowed him to stay for their parents’ sake but wasn’t ready to forgive him. The tension between Nick and his sister began to spill over to his relationship with Phyllis. Phyllis gets candid with Nick that there are only two ways forward for them.
Preview for next week.

After successfully convincing Victoria to wear her wedding dress, Sally was elated as the crowd at the wedding was floored by the designer’s talent. Adam lets Sally know that people are starting to warm up to her, but Sally is only interested in one person… and pulls Adam into a kiss! Sally’s burned a number of bridges with Adam’s family members, and we have to wonder how Victor will deal with this blossoming relationship.
Back in Genoa City, Lauren has clearly learned her lackluster dress was replaced with Sally’s fabulous creation. She confronts Chloe and demands an explanation.
Let us know in the comments if you think Billy and Lily will publish Gaines’ video, or let someone else beat them to it. And will Nick and Phyllis be able to survive the latest tension between them?
Be sure to read our exclusive interview with Richard Burgi previewing the wedding. Then browse the photo gallery below of soap characters in costumes and disguises.
<p>In 2015, <em>The Young and the Restless</em>’ Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) seized the opportunity to let out her inner Mae West. Why she would’ve ever put her inner Mae West back <em>in</em> is a question we are ill-equipped to answer.</p>
<p>In 2003, <em>Days of Our Lives</em> had Elvis — that is, Lucas (Bryan R. Dattilo) — say, “I love Lucy” — that is, Sami (Alison Sweeney). Got all that? ’Cause we’re not sure we do.</p>
<p><em>General Hospital</em> scared up a new look with which Lisa (Brianna Brown) could terrorize Robin (Kimberly McCullough) in 2011. But judging from the latter’s blasé reaction, we’re guessing all she saw in her tormentor’s costume was pie.</p>
<p>In 2016, it was steampunk all the way for <em>Bold & Beautiful</em> trick-or-treaters Caroline (Linsey Godrey, now Sarah on <em>Days of Our Lives</em>) and Thomas (then Pierson Fodé).</p>
<p>We have to gloved-hand it to <em>Young & Restless</em>’ Devon (Bryton James): When it came to his 2017 Michael Jackson costume, nobody could beat it.</p>
<p><em>RuPaul’s Drag Race</em> judge Michelle Visage would’ve had a field day clocking their scruff, but <em>Days of Our Lives</em>’ Chad (Billy Flynn), Sonny (Zach Tinker) and Will (Chandler Massey) still put their best stilleto’d feet forward on <em>Beyond Salem</em> in 2021.</p>
<p>In 2019, <em>General Hospital</em> sent Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey) so far back in time that pigeons had yet to do their business on that headstone.</p>
<p>Here’s the <em>Bold & Beautiful</em> tag team of Sally (Darlene Conley) and Gladys (Phyllis Diller) “plumbing” the depths of their imagination in 2003 to role-play their way into… Well, knowing them, hot water. But that’s rarely the goal.</p>
<p>Knowing how much there was, ahem, at stake, <em>The Young and the Restless</em>’ Billy (Jason Thompson) really sunk his teeth into Halloween in 2019. Hope they weren’t serving garlic dip!</p>
<p>In 1997, <em>Days of Our Lives</em>’ Susan (then Eileen Davidson) was all dressed up with nowhere to go. Then again, where would one go in an outfit that’s so very… um… very.</p>
<p><em>General Hospital</em> let future exes Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha (Sophia Mattsson) make it up as they went along on Halloween in 2019.</p>
<p>Beneath that flimsy pastel disguise in 2005 was the unimistakable face of <em>Bold & Beautiful</em> knockout Taylor (Hunter Tylo).</p>
<p>In 2003, <em>The Young and the Restless</em> offered a glimpse of what it would look like if it hit Victor (Eric Braeden) with a case of Soap-Opera Rapid-Aging Syndrome.</p>
<p>Even guest star Maureen O’Sullivan had to look away in 1981 when <em>All My Children</em> tried to pass off the sinful Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) as a twisted sister.</p>
<p>Even as he headed out for the evening, <em>General Hospital</em> had Curtis (Donnell Turner) go Holmes for Halloween 2019 — <em>Sherlock</em> Holmes, that is.</p>
<p>In 2009, <em>The Bold and the Beautiful</em> had Owen (Brandon Beemer, now Shawn, <em>Days of Our Lives</em>) <span style="text-decoration: line-through">make</span> throw a pass <span style="text-decoration: line-through">at</span> to Jackie (Lesley-Anne Down) while Pam (Alley Mills) did her best to referee.</p>
<p>That, believe it or not, is <em>Young & Restless</em>’ Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) exceptionally well-disguised in 2005. Wonder if she discovered that blondes really <em>do</em> have more fun.</p>
<p>… we can always tell <em>Days of Our Lives</em>’ Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso) from Hope. As in this photo from 2012, the royal pain is almost never seen without champagne, a cigarette and a haughty expression.</p>
<p>When <em>General Hospital</em> told <em>A Christmas Carol </em>in 2019, Ava (Maura West), Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) got made over as the ghosts of Christmas future, past and gorgeous. Sorry, <em>present</em> — future, past and present.</p>
<p>Dunno how this picture from 2015 got in here. This is just a shot of the <em>Bold & Beautiful</em> mother/son duo of Quinn (Rena Sofer) and Wyatt (Darin Brooks) on their way to pick up a few things at Piggly Wiggly.</p>
<p><em>Young & Restless</em>’ Nick (Joshua Morrow) only wore one incredibly lifelike mask — to turn him into a replica of ex-brother-in-law J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) — but it sure did the trick. He scared the bejesus out of half of Genoa City; now they all have to take bejesus supplements.</p>
<p><em>Days of Our Lives</em> revealed in 2007 that the DiMera/Brady feud had its origins in… Wait, what? EJ (then James Scott) and Sami (Alison Sweeney) looking like contenders to win second prize in a costume contest?</p>
<p>Cruella de Vil was embodied by <em>General Hospital</em> femme fatale Ava (Maura West) in 2019. But don’t worry: The coat is “foe” fur.</p>
<p>We jest. <em>The Bold and the Beautiful</em> went <em>extra</em> wild and crazy to celebrate Halloween in 2019. Just to be on the safe side, though, let’s keep Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) away from the villainess in the previous photo, shall we?</p>
<p>Ironically, the same year that <em>Young & Restless</em>’ Mariah (Camryn Grimes) crossed the borderline with Tessa, she celebrated Halloween looking like a virgin. Well, like Madonna circa her album of the same name, anyway.</p>
<p><em>Days of Our Lives</em>’ recreated 1990s flashbacks in 2020 recast Abigail (Marci Miller) as Jennifer and outfitted her in, if we’re not mistaken, <em>Seinfeld</em>’s infamous puffy shirt.</p>
<p><em>General Hospital</em> fans might guess Todd Manning. Or Franco Baldwin. Or Austin Gatlin-Holt. And they’d be kinda right, because that <em>is</em> Roger Howarth. But this isn’t actually a <em>General Hospital</em> photo but one from <em>As the World Turns</em>, where in 2009, the soap-hopper was playing Paul.</p>
<p><em>Somehow</em> people saw through the cater-waiter disguises that <em>Bold & Beautiful</em> schemers Shirley (Patrika Darbo) and Sally (Courtney Hope) donned in 2017.</p>
<p>No, <em>Young & Restless</em>’ Nick (Joshua Morrow) wasn’t engaging in some Justin Bieber cosplay in 2021, he was working out then-significant other Phyllis’, ahem, kinks as Sven the Masseur.</p>
<p>Has anybody ever more convincingly adopted a devil-may-care attitude than did <em>Days of Our Lives</em>’ Lucas (Bryan R. Dattilo) in 2004? And before you ask, “‘Witch’ character is that with him?” we’ll tell ya: It’s Sami (Alison Sweeney).</p>
<p>Every day was Halloween for <em>Passions</em> sorceress Tabitha (Juliet Mills). And in our heart of hearts, we like to think that it still is.</p>
<p>Close but no cigar. That’s April Knight, the Patty Duke-style lookalike cousin that <em>Bold & Beautiful</em> gave Amber (Adrienne Frantz) in 2003.</p>
<p>As <em>Young & Restless</em>’ Traci feverishly worked on her next novel in 2019, she imagined Lily (Christel Khalil) and Cane (Daniel Goddard) bringing to life her characters in period garb. Not that the garb was period to the characters, they lived in that period. But you knew what we meant… right?</p>
<p>Anyone who looked directly at <em>Days of Our Lives</em>’ possessed Marlena (Deidre Hall) would have gasped, “Jeepers creepers, where’d you get those peepers?” — and promptly taken away from her any and all sharp, stabby implements.</p>
<p>In 2008, <em>Bold & Beautiful</em>’s Bridget (Ashley Jones) threw on a wig and really convinced <span style="text-decoration: line-through">folks</span> herself that she was Madame X, the mysterious new designer hired to doodle gladrags for Jackie (Lesley-Anne Down).</p>
<p>When <em>Young & Restless</em> had Dylan (Steve Burton) infiltrate the Mafia in 2016, the undercover detective changed his whole appearance… a little. But if he’d <em>really</em> wanted to convincingly portray a mobster…</p>
