I hope this is ok, if I've done anything wrong please feel free to edit accordingly.

Entertainment Weekly (@EW) has just tweeted that David Hasselhoff is set to reprise his Y&R role of Dr. William “Snapper” Foster, Jr. He’ll return to the show’s Los Angeles set in May for an arc that will start airing in mid-June.

I thought this part was interesting.

Hasselhoff won’t be the only Foster family member to stage a surprise homecoming: Veteran TV actor Wings Hauser will also reprise his role as Snapper’s brother Greg, and Julianna McCarthy will pick up where she left off in 2008 as matriarch Liz Foster Brooks. She is the mother of Jill Foster Abbott, who is currently played by the Emmy-winning Jess Walton (who didn’t start playing the character until 1987 so there will be no vintage shots of the Foster family).

In-depth article at the source with a YouTube clip.

Please don't kill off Liz :( :(

I was going to say why not bring back James Houghton as Greg, like they did before, but since LML fired him and so many other talented backstage people, why bother to bring him back, eh? More of MAB and her "respect" for Bill Bell's legacy. Respect my ass.

I hope this will at least mean some sort of decent scenes for Jill, unless they are all coming back to tell Jill what an awful person she is.

Running out of ways to manipulate the audience into thinking the show you're writing is classic Bill Bell-style Y&R, Maria?

Hahaha...You'd think Bill Bell were writng the show...but once you tune in u know its just a cheap imiation of William's work.

MAB honors old school Y&R history by bringing back the Brooks and the Fosters!

--Lorie Brooks returns having plastic surgery to look like Nikki because she's obsessed with Victor.

--Bill Foster tells Liz that the reason he left them is because he's gay.

--It is revealed that Eric Forrester is actually Lance Prentiss because Lance is Eric's doppelganger.

    • Just so, so ridiculous! I've always wondered if Andy is really not into Latinas, especially ones with slight accents like Adriana. Even though all of us watching can perfectly understand Adriana and enjoy her Brazilian telenovela flair. There is no reason Adriana couldn't be a mojito-holder, and Martina Navratilova's wife (I mean, God bless, because Martina is a straight-up ICON), who barely appears in the trailer, couldn't be a FOH. Marysol, too, is like a tentpole figure whose PR business united all the women in the OG RHOMi. ITA that Marysol seems a lot more entertaining than she was on the original series. Back then, Mama Elsa dominated and Marysol seemed a lot shyer, more passive and sensitive. Since her mother's death, I imagine Marysol has had to come to terms with that and come into her own fabulousness. I always found it interesting that Marysol, Alexia and Adriana had an understanding (las cubanas + la brasileira) to the detriment of other friendships.   Thanks for the glowing review! I will catch up on it. Does it feel like familiar OC? I feel like OC lost some of its familiar OC magic in the last few seasons, so I'm excited about Heather returning. Obviously if Tamra popped up, it would be phenomenal! I'm just so glad the toxic, exhausting Kelly Doddlezal is no longer on the show. I can't overstate how much she was ruining the show for me.
    • I also wanted to say that my middle school years were spent in eastern Massachusetts, near Boston, where some of those towns are naturally gothic and a bit witchy (and not just the original Salem lol). I was part of a Catholic family and there were a big Irish Catholic presence where I grew up, but my mom was foreign (French), and so we weren't as closely embraced in that community where people had long generational ties to the area. So I got to observe a lot about how these communities hummed. There were cultures of silence and unspoken little scandals. The Catholic aspect always held an element of karma or superstition! And it was cold and icy winter conditions for about 4-5 months of the year. For these reasons, Days during Reilly's run resonated with me, and I felt like he understood the soul of a place like the one I lived in. His last name certainly made me wonder if he was writing from New England and somewhat immersed in that world.
    • Andy said on his radio show that Adriana is a friend because they didn't want to have too many housewives. That is stupid IMO because 7 would've been fine. He said she's in every episode and will seem full time and from the trailer she's giving more than some of the mojito holders. Just an odd, odd move. I also find all the Marysol to be odd since she's also a friend. Marysol also seems more interesting than she was before.    I was convinced it was going to be terrible based on the lack of promo, but the RHOC premiere was the best opening episode for any of the shows that premiered this year. I feel like most have a big hook to draw you in, but it takes weeks to get there as we saw with RHOBH and RHOSLC. With OC, it kicked off right away. They did everything right. They reintroduced Heather, gave us house porn and a proper update on her family and life. Then they got us all caught up on Emily and Gina and gradually introduced the newbies. This all led to whispers of a secret and they left us with a great cliffhanger! No "wait 10 episodes for the drama to start," they literally just gave it to us. I thought everybody brought it and I think RHOC is going to have a good season.
    • Couldn't have said it better myself @titan1978. Reilly's run during most of the first half of the 90s was Must Watch TV. I used to watch with friends and almost every episode (especially the Friday cliff-hangers) gave us goose bumps while watching, there was so much going on and they were so exciting. And I'm not talking cheap-thrills exciting, I'm talking Sami going from problem child to villainess, Marlena and John struggling with their attraction to each other (which had been established at least two years before the incident on John's private jet!). People's relationships with each other across the cast of characters were being fleshed out with care, hitting all the marks, never rushed, but you always felt there was momentum in these relationships and you didn't always know where they were going. Reilly was invested in this gothicky little town of Salem -- where most scenes seemed to take place after sundown (!!) -- and the denizens. He clearly loved writing for Marlena and her torment as she tried to do the right thing while staying honest with herself, but I never felt the other characters were shortchanged. And Reilly really painted a picture of a community, with all the age groups represented. I have such happy memories of Days during this time -- a golden age for soaps in general, IMO, because TPTB put in the effort and seemed to care about the stories and characters. Like on Days TPTB seemed caught up in the whirl and excitement of certain SLs the way the viewers did.
