Who’s that devil in the mask? Weekdays e.tv (*194) 09:00
Halloween is a great excuse to dress up in outlandish costumes and have fun, but Y&R is going an unusually dark and deadly route for their glam Halloween charity gala in memory of hit-and-run victim Delia Abbott (Sophie Pollono) on Thursday 14 July. The event at Newman Towers sees everyone in costume, from Genoa City’s high society like Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) as iconic silver-screen actress Mae West and Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) as Dracula, to the little children who’ve been invited as special guests. But trouble’s brewing in the form of a secret saboteur in a devil mask who sets the building on fire on Monday 18 July and as the tower burns, explodes and collapses all around them in Y&R’s homage to the classic 1974 disaster film The Towering Inferno, people are fighting to get out alive...
Peter Bergman couldn’t speak with the fangs from Jack’s Halloween costume, so he didn’t use them. Feelings will run hot as Y&R’s lovers and unlikely heroes work together to survive the blaze, like archenemies and business rivals Victor Newman Stitch stands in the blaze after being blown off his feet by an explosion in the Newman Tower. (Eric Braeden) and Jack, who are crammed together in a small room. Also facing death is Stitch (Sean Carrigan), who realises that he has feelings for Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) instead of his fiancée, Ashley’s daughter Abby (Melissa Ordway) on Tuesday 19 July. And Adam (Justin Hartley) will be desperate to save Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) from the flames that same day and he’s not going to let handcuffs or a hospital bed stop him.
WHO’S THE DEVIL?
On Tuesday 19 July, Kevin and Nick (Greg Rikaart and Joshua Morrow) see the devilish firestarter come up on one of the Newman computers infected by Ian Ward’s (Ray Wise) Project virus. But could evil Ian be the villain behind the devil mask? Ray hints that it’s possible: “He has been slapped or punched by pretty much everybody in Genoa City. He can’t move on with his life because he still has scores to settle.”
