‘Adam Newman’ (Justin Hartley) is no angel. This generally unrepentant sinner practices creative morality in a manner that few would ever conceive of, let alone play out. However, this week on ‘The Young and the Restless’ some windows in his glass house will be shattered.
YR made a decision to move away from the Shadam arc awhile ago, which ushered in the Chadam era. ‘Chelsea’ (Melissa Claire Egan) became the second ‘true love’ of ‘Adam’s’ life. ‘Chelsea’ forgave the ‘Gabriel’ ruse because of ‘Connor’ (Gunner and Ryder Gadbois) and because her intense emotions, like ‘Adam’ himself, hadn’t died. That’s why she might eventually overlook a business play that ‘Adam’ reveals about the Paragon Project and his connection to ‘Ian Ward’ (Ray Wise).
Exactly how ‘Gabriel’s’ identity is revealed, or exposed, isn’t yet known. But, the fictional populace that exists beyond ‘Chelsea’ (and ‘Sharon’, Sharon Case) doesn’t care about ‘Adam’ at all. And, forgiveness will be non-existent when the families who are connected to ‘Delia Abbott’ (Sophie Pollono) learn that her killer never died.
‘Billy-boy’ (Burgess Jenkins) and the great ‘Victor Newman’ (Eric Braeden) will find themselves on the same side in that approaching unholy war. Might those enemies work together, as the ‘Dark Knight’ is doing with ‘Jack’ (Peter Bergman) to hold ‘Adam’ guilty for his offenses, both perceived, real and intended?
