The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Jason Thompson Opens Up About Billy And Adam’s Next Step

The Young and the Restless spoilers say that sometimes you have to take two steps backwards in order to go forwards, and it looks like that seems to be the case between Billy and Adam. In fact, actor Jason Thompson, who plays Billy on the hit CBS soap, recently talked to Soap Opera Digest about the two characters and their recent breakthrough as they have been struggling to see eye-to-eye about Connor’s mental health struggles. Keep reading below for everything you need to know.

The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Jason Thompson Opens Up About Billy And Adam’s Next Step

Jason was asked about the scenes in which Billy and Adam talked about Connor’s OCD outside of the child psychologist’s office. The actor admitted those were definitely one of the most powerful scenes he’s ever played on the soap so far. He put it this way, “It was great to go back to those places of kind of vulnerability and moments in characters’ lives that have changed the trajectory of their life. I think that comes with history, and what we get to do in this genre is tell those long-form stories.”

He continued, “So, yeah, there’s a lot going on with Adam and Billy’s incredible personal history. Billy opened up to Adam [about] that night, ‘I tried to run you down’ and those words have never been said out loud yet by Billy, let alone to Adam. But there’s a humanness that I think that they’ve found with each other that was like, ‘Look, I’m never going to like you, but as a human being I can have empathy for what you’re going through right now.’ And I think that’s a really nice moment for people to have. Does it last? Who knows? That’s what we get when characters continue to develop and things happen.”

Jason also said that he liked how the conversation between them was very unexpected. For once, Billy and Adam were not at each other’s throats and they actually had a decent conversation between them. He said, “That was noticeable with us, too, and it was great because we talked about that and we’re like, ‘Okay, this is interesting.’ They could revert to old habits very quickly just as much as Chelsea could, which in turn, spins it off in a whole other way. We’re all capable of going back to that place, but we’re also capable of having these human moments as well, which is a little more complex and fun. I think it’s engaging storytelling.”

It goes without saying that fans will have to tune in to find out what will happen next. The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on the CBS network. Check your local listings for times.
