Genoa City's favorite, musical son is coming home for another visit. Michael Damian tweeted he will be reprising the role of Danny Romalotti for the 10,000th episode of The Young and the Restless. Damian tweeted: 16 Responses pferrando August 23, 2012 Perfect. Hope a lot of the vets return before the bloodbath begins in Oct. Welcome back Michael! Log in to Reply stoney07 August 23, 2012 I’m confused….I’m sure SOMEONE on this site can answer my question… I’ve read somewhere that the 10,000 episode was ALL ABOUT VICTOR, or something like that…and it was supposed to be so horrible, etc. Why would Danny come back just for a Victor funeral or whatever is supposed to happen? UNLESS, the new regime has tweaked the scripts/episode a little and made it a little more of an ensemble effort. IDK… Anyway, glad to see him back for the 10,000 episode (and he said MORE) Log in to Reply pferrando August 23, 2012 I think that episode will be before they take over. I hope. And GOD please make it a celebration! Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 August 23, 2012 I feel sorry for him that he has to be back for that awful celebration. Still sad that CBS/Sony decided to not rewrite the 10,000th episode. Log in to Reply hey mon August 23, 2012 Hopefully he is back with a haircut. Log in to Reply pennywise555 August 23, 2012 Any word on Jess Walton? Is Jill returning or will she even be mentioned? Jill WAS the only character remaining from the from the debut episode of The Young and The Restless in 1973. Millions of viewers have followed both Jill, and Kay & Jill for decades. Kay and Jill’s relationship is a decade older than Victor and Nikki’s. I know soaps are famous for having characters disappear into closets or up the stairs never to return, but it usually isn’t a character that viewers have followed since the beginning of the program. Jill Foster Abbott isn’t Ryder for goodness sakes! I know it’s all about $$$ for Sony, so I’m finding it hard to believe they aren’t capitalizing in JC’s bestselling book. Millions of former viewers are probably checking in. Y&R used to have more than 3X the viewers, those viewers would expect to see Jill & Kay and a grown up little Phillip, not Laura & Stefan. Log in to Reply Yoryla August 23, 2012 ^^ Jill should be back for that episode. The episode, which should center around Katherine altogether anyway! However, I wouldn’t be surprised if we never see Jill Fenmore again. Log in to Reply harlee490 August 23, 2012 YES we will see Jill! I don’t want to think of not having Jill to present mixing it up like Jill can do. I think JFP & more so JG will give Jill a good story for her return…she’s been off canvas and Josh could do something meaty storyline to launch Jill back on canvas. Not much longer, I been so missing Jill…. :(( :(( :(( Log in to Reply CarlyCfan August 23, 2012 I’m still hoping that rewrote Maria Hackerena Hell’s 10,000th episode. Am I being delusional? Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon August 23, 2012 Jill and Katherine as much as, if not more than, Nikki and Victor, are the true center of Y&R. Their story encapsulates the vision of class struggle that Bill Bell originally conceived for this show: the ambitious girl from the wrong side of the tracks tangling with the corrupt high society doyenne. The celebration should be featuring them. It will be the first time I’ve watched Y&R in quite a while and I don’t want to be negative about something that hasn’t aired yet; but NOBODY has anything good to say about it.

I do know that when Jill left, she was supposed to return in October, now that may have changed. I really didn’t feel she would come back, as they give her so little screen time, and hopefully at her age, she has saved enough money to live comfortably, for the rest of her life. Log in to Reply Coffee_Junkie August 23, 2012 I think Jill will be back, but it will be later than originally planned (like maybe CHRISTMAS). I also think she’ll be returning alone and the plans to have her return with Colin have been completely SCRAPPED. Log in to Reply TraceyAbbot101 August 23, 2012 I would like to see more Tracey; some of the Brooks girls; Dina?; Mamie? Log in to Reply tashikins August 23, 2012 Want Jill back now. Log in to Reply tedew August 24, 2012 All who are still living really should be able to be in Episode 10000 if they are willing and able. Any missing in action would surely be noticed. I wonder what the concept will be though. Log in to Reply pferrando August 25, 2012 It’d be great to see the originals from the early 70’s, but doubt it’d happen. Those were the years though… Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
