More than two years after seemingly, though not likely, running ‘Delia’ (Sophie Pollono) down, ‘Adam’ (Justin Hartley) was finally sent to prison. However, the initial 10-year sentence he received was aggressively countered by an unexpected source on ‘The Young and the Restless’. And, this week ‘Adam’s’ rapid-fire, crooked appeal is set to be heard and likely, decided.
Yes, the still-great ‘Victor Newman’ (Eric Braeden) swooped into save his son. As with all things ‘Dark Knight’, there’s a catch. ‘Victor’ offered his support, while creating a verbal contract with ‘Adam’ that calls for the ‘Paragon Project’s’ extermination and take-down action against ‘Jabot’.
‘Judge Elise Moxley’ (Jensen Buchanan) is in ‘Victor’s’ pocket, having previously been involved with Genoa City’s most notorious schemer on a personal basis. As long as she frees ‘Victor, Junior’ from the pokey all will be forgotten, or at least kept silent until a future situation necessitates further blackmail.
‘Adam’s’ legal opposition is led by ‘Christine Williams’ (Lauralee Bell), who’s been incessantly aggravated for what seems like forever. But, who can blame her, considering the manner in which she lost her baby through ‘Nikki’ (Melody Thomas Scott) and ‘Neil’s’ (Kristoff St. John) reckless behavior. Now, ‘Adam’s’ appeal seems likely to unfold in a manner that will please ‘Christine’s’ one-time mentor ‘Michael Baldwin’ (Christian LeBlanc).
A flashback reference is inserted here for long-time viewers, as crisp images of ‘Michael’ gnawing through ‘Christine’s’ wall in the 1990’s always make these courtroom clashes almost unbelievable. The use of the word ‘almost’ only fits because this is soap. Therefore, it’s also almost unbelievable that ‘Adam’ would be set free when he’s believed to have covered up accidental vehicular homicide. Yet, that’s where this arc is heading in December 2015.
