So far ‘The Young And The Restless’ spoilers regarding Jerry Douglas’s brief return are few and far between, but ‘Y&R’ fans are already speculating what storyline he will be partaking in.  Billy Abbott’s character is going a bit dark, which will somehow correlate with the transition of actors Burgess Jenkins and Jason Thompson (General Hospital).  A popular theory on social media right now is that amidst Billy’s downward spiral he will have chat with his father John Abbott’s ghost.

Jerry Douglas began his portrayal of John Abbottt back in 1982, and he was a central character on ‘The Young And The Restless’ until he was officially killed off in 2006.  The writers didn’t leave much room for the character to return from the dead – his death was very cut and dry, he suffered from a stroke, his wife and kids said their goodbyes to him in his hospital room, and then he was taken off from life-support.  Since John Abbott’s death, Douglas has appeared  on the CBS soap opera occasionally in flashbacks and in ghost form.

So ‘Y&R‘ fans, are you excited to see Jerry Douglas back in Genoa City, even if it is as a ghost?  Who do you think he will be haunting?
