Who’s that devil in the mask? Week­days (*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.


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.”
