On Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, it was a major day of revelations for the Newman and Abbott clans!
For the true identify of Gabriel Bingham came to light, and thus Adam Newman (Justin Hartley) has finally been outed for being alive and well with a new face! It all began last week with two women holding the information to bust Adam! First, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) got the news from a vengeful Ian Ward (Ray Wise), who was going down for his crimes masterminding the Paragon Project. But before Paul (Doug Davidson) found him to throw him in the slammer again, Ian told Phyllis his partner in Paragon was Adam Newman!
Meanwhile, after putting two and two together, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) gets Adam to admit he is the co-conspirator in the Paragron Project and she kicks him out. She beelines to tell Billy (Burgess Jenkins) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) the truth! After going over a series of flashback and moments, Billy realizes the man responsible for the hit and run death of his daughter Delia is alive. He then decides to go confront him.
Phyllis has headed to Newman to see Victor (Eric Braeden) and Jack (Peter Bergman), and informs them Adam is alive hiding behind the face of Gabriel Bingham. Victor starts to come to the stark realization that Adam pulled this most heinous of scams trying to bring Newman to its knees. When he confronts Jack if he knew the truth that Adam was alive, Jack can’t deny it. Phyllis is mortified.
At the Underground, Sage (Kelly Sullivan) and Nick’s (Joshua Morrow) moment with Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) beomes unraveled, when an upset Victoria comes to tell her brother and mother that Adam was in cahoots with Ian Ward, and that he is alive after all. Next, Victoria also goes in on Sage, who admits she knew the truth about Gabe/Adam. Nick is furious with her deception.
Later at the end of the episode, it was the beginning of two major showdowns: Billy begins to have it out with Adam, as Victor shows up just as the confrontation between arch-enemies, Billy and Adam, was about to get physical. However, Victor decided to punch the lights out of his son, first.
Justin Hartley delivered another stellar performance, while Burgess Jenkins stepped up to the plate, and Eric Braeden shows why hell hath no fury like a Victor Newman scorned. The story picks-up tomorrow where Sage’s lies completely become her undoing, and Victor and Adam have the highly-anticipated father/son chitchat!
