On yesterday’s episode of CBS number one daytime drama, The Young and the Restless, Adam (Justin Hartley) finally has come forward, to a key person from his past … Jack Abbott! But would Jack believe this guy with a unrecognizable face?
Adam always thought of Jack as his “father” and not “the moustache” Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) as he explains during their encounter. So, it seems if Adam was going to have some Genoa City ally this might be it, so it’s worth taking the chance to expose who he is to Jack.
In key scenes after showing up at Jack’s house, at first Jack doesn’t believe Adam and calls it a “sick joke” when he says he is Adam. However, Adam insists he knows things that the two of them shared, and that no one else could possibly know, not even someone pretending to be Adam! It culminates when Adam brings up what happened to the call girl’s body, and what they did with it! Adam tells Jack the last words he said to him about it, and it is then that Jack finally believes him and sucker punches Adam right in the kisser!
Finally, Adam recalls the events of how he survived being trapped in the car after the accident with Billy (then Billy Miller, and now played by Burgess Jenkins), and the explosion that followed. He notes he was pulled out of a river, and woke up in a strange house with his face bandaged. We then see a flashback of Sage (Kelly Sullivan) calling him Gabriel. Adam then reveals that the real Gabriel Bingham died saving him. He got some much needed assistance in getting a new face from Sage, and her help in a cover-up including bribing the coroner in regards to dental records.
Jack is furious and thinks Adam was so desperate to get away with killing little Delia that he concocted this whole set-up to save his ass! Adam swears it all by chance! When Jack picks up the phone … to which it looks like he is calling the police, when Adam asks who he is dialing, Jack says he’s calling Billy!
So, what did you think of the scenes? What did you think of the performances between Justin Hartley and Peter Bergman? Are you glad slowly, but surely Adam is being integrated back into the canvas, and the story is picking up a lot of steam? What do you think of the back-story on Adam/Gabriel and Sage’s part in all of this? Do you think that Billy will have a showdown with Adam? Or, is that much further down the line and yet to come in the story? Share your thoughts below!
