‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Photo Leak Shows JT Body Dug Up in November Sweeps

The Young and the Restless spoilers from a new photo leak shows JT Hellstrom’s (Thad Luckinbill) body is dug up in November sweeps on Y&R. The photo confirms that the JT Hellstrom story will be put to rest at last – even as his corpse is exhumed from its resting place. This dragging storyline ends soon – are you thrilled? Here are the details.

Young and the Restless November Sweeps

There’s a lot to unpack for Fall sweeps week on The Young and the Restless and not all of it is great news for the fans. First, Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) leaves soon. The official dates for Fall sweeps 2018 are Thursday, October 25 – Wednesday, November 21. Soap Central confirmed Eileen filmed her last scenes and she’s rumored to be out of there just as sweeps kicks off next week.

With the Abbott family legacy tarnished by showrunner Mal Young, it’s hard to see how the character can leave with her dignity intact. This will no doubt leave fans frustrated. Jill Abbott (Jess Walton) is back for sweeps just as Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) returns from rehab. Plus, Kelly Kruger is back as Mackenzie Browning, no doubt related to her husband’s body cropping up.

Y&R Scenes in Chancellor Park – JT Hellstrom Body Dug Up

The behind the scenes photos, shown above, reveal that Young and the Restless spoilers from Soap Dirt were correct. The JT Hellstrom storyline is wrapping (thankfully!) during sweeps week in November. Scenes filmed at the park show a cordoned-off area and the ground disrupted. But how do the cops know to go digging there?

Other Y&R spoilers and rumors hint that Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) gets a tip from Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks). It looks like Tessa might have been the source of the blackmail letters, but it looks like the ladies won’t pay. With no money and Tessa increasingly desperate to save her sister Crystal, she could turn to Rey. If he can save her sis, Tessa would rat out the JT crew, no doubt.

Will the JT Hellstrom Corpse Send Someone to Prison?

The body of JT Hellstrom being found is a confirmed Young and the Restless spoiler. That means the cops may arrest someone soon – possibly during sweeps. If the ladies stick together, they might be able to argue self-defense since Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) was defending her daughter. Then again, if they break ranks, someone could take the blame for the whole mess.

Remember, Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) is furious that Phyllis Abbott (Gina Tognoni) bedded Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) so she might not play nice. There’s a lot of angst in this crew of conspirators. And you can’t assume that Y&R won’t send one of them to prison. Given how many characters have exited recently (Paul, Michael, Hilary, etc.) or dropped to recurring (Lily), there’s no telling.

JT Hellstrom Discovery Could Lead to Another Exit

Will Mal Young dig up JT’s body and use it as an excuse to bury another legacy character? Could one of the ladies wind up in lock-up in a sweeps surprise that will upset fans further? We’ll know soon enough. The digging scenes filmed at the Chancellor Park set on September 27. Since they shoot about a month ahead, that would put the reveal right around Halloween.

Primarily a reality TV junkie, I’ve glommed onto daytime drama over the past five years and am now thoroughly addicted. My favorite is General Hospital but Days of Our Lives is picking up speed fast. CBS soaps are great to watch and I enjoy writing about all these for Soap Dirt.
