This was expected by good for GH. What is Y&R's problem? They could have worked around Billy's schedule. It can't be money because GH can't possibly have more money than Y&R.

Will JaSam reunite? Will Liason get another shot? It's going to be an interesting fall on GH.

Jason and Robin!! How many women/men/soulmates can Jason have? LOL It's going to take two months for Billy Miller to get around to sharing scenes with all these people. That is if he ever gets out of that cryogenic chamber.
Don't mess with Carly when she learns he is alive!!!
