I don't usually like holiday-themed episodes, but Y&R's Halloween show actually made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. At Nick and Phyllis's place, they, along with J.T. and Victoria chatted about which dead person they'd want to encounter and Victoria said that she'd like to make peace with Sabrina. A picture then fell ... on its own. Everyone laughed it off, but when Vicky was alone, she asked if anyone was there, and a shadow passed by her. Later. Reed's rattle (the one Sabrina gave him) shook by itself and then the shadow again passed by a photograph of the Newmans and whispered Victor's name. Spooky! Y&R doesn't incorporate the supernatural as often as some of the other soaps do (John's ghost is supposed to be Jack's conscience speaking to him), but this was a nice, subtle — and creepy — way to do it. Happy Halloween indeed!
