197 October 23rd, 2015 THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Who Ran Down Adam Newman?

Courtesy/CBS

The Young and the Restless delivered riveting and emotional scenes during its Friday’s cliffhanger, in the story revolving around the verdict and the sentencing of Adam Newman (Justin Hartley).

After over two years, Adam is finally set to pay for his crimes in the hit and run accident that caused the death of little Delia Abbott.

If you have not seen today’s episode do not read any further!

As written, the series came full circle to a conclusion which saw justice being served, when Adam is sentenced to ten years in prison, after he is found guilty of felony hit-and-run in the death of Delia.

During the sentencing phase, a distraught Kevin took the stand in a touching performance by Greg Rikaart.  Kevin tells the court he wants the entire book thrown at Adam for taking away his  stepdaughter.  He goes on to tell the judge that he can’t forgive Adam for having the answers to what happened to Delia all that time, and hiding it.  Kevin adds that Adam showed no compassion and should be punished to the full extent of the law.  After the judge hands down his sentence, Kevin utters, “It’s not enough.”

Meanwhile, Billy (Burgess Jenkins) who blames himself for his negligence in Delia’s death, talks to Delia at her tree in Chancellor Park with Victoria (Amelia Heinle) in tow.  Victoria tells Billy he is still so angry and he has to forgive himself.  She relates: “You told Delia the anger was gone.  Don’t lie to her.”  The leaves on the tree begin to move.  Billy says Delia’s finally at peace.  As a vision of Delia says, “I love you daddy.”

As Adam (in another star turn by Justin Hartley) deals with his fate and excepts his punishment, he is ramanded into custody to be transported to the state pentitiary for his crimes.   As Adam is leaving the courthouse steps to cross to where the police van is, viewers see a car with a gloved hand at the steering wheel driving full force with headlines on straight into Adam!  In a “fitting end” to the trial and this storyline that provided over two years of Y&R story,  Adam is now the victim of a hit and run himself!  As his family watched in horror, Adam goes down.

So now the question is, who was behind the sterring wheel that wanted Adam dead?  Suspects that come to mind are: Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson), Ian (Ray Wise), Billy (Burgess Jenkins), Esther (Kate Linder), and Kevin (Greg Rikaart)! But could it be someone else?

Let us know what you thought of today’s episode of Y&R and the performances?  And then weigh-in: who was behind the wheel and ran down Adam Newman?  But first watch the final moments of Friday’s episode, then comment below!

    could be soo many people…of course the one that comes first to everyone’s mind is Chloe. However, it could be Ian Ward. Even Victor could have arranged for it because of Paragon…even though he’s playing the grieving father!! Let’s hope they don’t drag this SL out for a year!!! get to the answer and move on…let Adam out of prison to be with Chelsea and Connor and bring some action to this show!

    I doubt very much it was Victor. Regardless of his angst, Victor loves his son, albeit not his persona/actions. However, you are right….there are a chosen few in GC who may have run Adam down.

    chloe ran him down

    After hearing the sentence of 10 years, I think Kevin ran him down. He said “That’s not enough”. Otherwise, Chloe, because she said to Billy, let’s find a way to kill him and get away with it.

    Thats a red herring! It was Ian.

    I think it’s Kevin or Ian. Hope they don’t kill him off, that’s do it for me

    I hope it will be that simple, Madison. I want this over and done, already.
    Off the subject. But, is it just me, or does little Connor look like Michael Muhney? Just sayin’.

    Glenda replied

    I think maybe it is the real driver who ran over Delia. They want Adam silenced just on case he remembers something about the night delia was ran over. Far out I know but no more than all this plastic surgery people have on here

    alexis bean replied

    why would kevin run adam over ,

    alexis bean replied

    why would billy kill him . he forgives him

    alexis bean replied

    it was chloe who ran over adam with a car

    Chloe was behind the wheel, in my opinion, but seriously, Adam Newman doesn’t die! The man has been shot, at least twice, lit on fire and driven into a lake. Now he’s been run over. What vitamins does he take in the morning? Haha

    Remember Victor was shot then microseconds after he’s released from the hospital, he’s jumping out of plane in Canada and then is electrocuted when standing in a flooded boat. lol

    Having Adam leap out of a hospital bed when just days before they said it was “touch and go” for him, is just as ridiculous as any of Victor’s capers after a medical crisis. lol

    chloe will get the blame for this and being incarcerated will make her have to tell about the child she now has…and tell the father that he has a new child be it billy or kevin,,,though i think mariah willl be preggers from her one night stand with kevin,,,in the end it will turn out o be ian ward im sure,,as for adam he will be paralyzed or some crazy health problem that will keep him from going to prison

    CeeCee replied

    You are so right, randy. Unless Greg is off the show, no way is he the culprit….the same could apply to Chloe. Thus, the most logical scapegoat would be Ian.
    I think Kevin could possibly be indicted and spend time in jail….well, serves him right for ‘escaping’ drastic punishment for his past criminal deeds. But, soon enough, as whomever killed Delia, the real culprit will be found.

    Chloe is off the show already and has been for over a year. That’s why I think it’s her. She’s been crazy since Delia was killed, so they will take the easy way out and make her the culprit after blaming everyone else.

    CeeCee replied

    @SZima.
    Hi,
    The Chloe character is recurring; so not completely off the show. That’s why I said what I said. It is too simplistic for it to be Chloe; then again, sometimes I thing TPTB are simple-minded, as a whole.

    alexis bean replied

    it was Chloe who ran down Adam Newman with a car , nick and sage’s son is dead , but adam cares about sage , when he talked to her she was crying , sage seems like she is not mad at adam anymore ,

    I thought Greg Rikaart did a fantastic job. That was some of the best acting I’ve seen from him ever, which doesn’t say anything about him, but more about the writers not giving him enough emotional material. But maybe I should be careful what I wish for, because I don’t want any giant chipmunk heads in my bear future.

    Who ran Adam Down? whoa that’s a tuffy .. lol

    1st-
    Chloe

    2nd-
    Ian Ward
    ( sweet revenge on Adam for messing up his game.
    (yes he can do that from prison, easily.

    or- a crazed Kmart shopper on her way to a blue light special ..

    Better yet;
    How will Adam get out of doing time?
    Justin/Adam is the Y&R star and is needed on screen, not in a cell.
    He will be free, no doubts, but how?

    And– did Adam run over Delia?

    Billy is the guilty one. Ask yourself this question. Would you leave your under aged daughter in your vehicle at night without adult supervision while you go inside to buy ice cream? What if a real criminal walk by the vehicle and see a young under age girl sitting in the vehicle without adult supervision?

    I think it was Kevin who stormed out of the court room mad because Adam only got 10 years. I still believe Adam really didn’t hit delia that it was the real Gabriel Bingham and Sage knows this, but hasn’t come forth.

    k/kay replied

    Yes Kevin who raped Lily and gave her a STD when she was 15 and then their was the attempted murder of Colleen when he locked her in Gina’s restaurant and burned it to the ground and the only thing that saved her was the fact she hid in the freezer. We sure would need his testimony about anything. As far as I am concerned Phyllis, Victor and Kevin need to zip it with their past misdeeds. Their is a rumor that Adam did not hit that child and that Jensen Buchanan’s character ties into the truth.

    annette replied

    I hope so because I love Adam on here because I know he can be bad, but I think he really isn’t trying to hurt no one and deserves to be happy. I hope Jensen Buchanan rumor is true.

    CeeCee replied

    That’s a very interesting theory, Kay….the involvement of Jensen B with the mystery surrounding that fatal night.

    Barbara Craig replied

    Has to ge someone that they want written off the show. Sage or Ian! Or maybe Paul’s crazy sister escaped from the nut house!

    CeeCee replied

    What if Jensen’s character is Gabe’s mother? Did she hit Delia? Have Sam and she met on that fateful night? Too far-fetched, Kay? It’s possible, yes?

  7. Wendy - Vancouver says:

    No one has considered Marco getting back at Victor for his last treatment. We all know Marco is operating from prison. So, to take out one of Victor’s sons would be retribution.

    Also, Chloe could have ‘hired’ someone (a new cast member) to run down Adam.

    I seriously doubt it is the obvious choices, Chloe or Kevin.

    Have to add some of the scenes this week were Emmy worthy. Hope many of the clips from the courtroom scenes are submitted.

    Bravo to the entire team for the superb performances on ‘the stand’ testifying.

    CeeCee replied

    Good for you, Wendy. That is a valid statement. Marco could very well be involved in this. You just gave me a passing thought. Perhaps, Luca Santori ( the Italian name given to this very ethnic- looking guy is a joke) is Marco’s outside link.

    My first thought was Chloe, but it’d be too obvious and that’s what they want us to believe. My next thought was Kevin. He was pissed off enough and is crazy enough! Maybe it’s a huge twist and it’s the innocent Esther?!

    I really want to make a prediction on Sage’s baby, but I won’t since it involves Monday’s episode!

    CeeCee replied

    Hi, Carrie.
    As all these comments prove; we are a smart, thinking bunch, LOL. So, anyone could have hit Delia. But, this new nagging feeling I have puts Jensen B’s character smack in the middle. K/Kay brought her name up. I am taking it a little further. She could be Gabe’s mother. She could have hit Delia. Gabe could have hit Delia. He could still be alive. He was hurt…. near death, that fatal night. His mother could have nursed him back to health.
    Now Adam has been de-masked and has too many buried memories. Ergo, boom!!! Mommy runs him down.

    ok-
    I thought better of it after I paused the car scene.
    It was a man’s hand wearing a leather glove on the steering wheel.
    I was a man’s foot, a boot/high ankle cut mens shoe on the gas pedal..
    I think it was Ian ward driving or involved.

    Y&R will not put Adam their star character on hold and they will not put Kevin on hold.

  12. Rose says:

    The obvious finger points to Chloe so that probably means it’s not her. Ian Ward likes mind games, not anything so pedestrian as hitting someone down with a car. Could be Kevin because he can be impulsive, but I hope not. Hum??????? All said and done have to go with Chloe.

    I think Chloe was behind the wheel but Kevin will get the blame because they think Chloe left town and he was so angry.
    I just laughed at Phyliss and her “if that was my daughter” referring to Delia, I guess she forgot when Summer smashed into Chelsea’s car and caused her to lose the baby, and Kevin in his outrage, I guess he forgot when he locked Colleen in the cooler at Gina’s and then set fire to the place hoping to kill her.

  18. Chadam Forever says:

    I’m sorry, but why is everyone all concerned for Adam all the sudden? I mean, it’s not like I don’t feel bad for the character, but no one showed so much concerned for the character when Michael Muhney played the role. In fact, I remember on the show’s 40th anniversary that Adam, then played by Muhney, saved his dad from getting shot at his wedding, yet little to no people, opposed to Sharon, Chelsea, Victor, Nikki, and surprisingly Nick came to the hospital. Then when Justin Hartley played the character he gets injured in a hit-and-run, which I still don’t believe that Adam killed Delia and feel likes it’s actually Sage, everyone’s rushing to the hospital. I like the character and Hartley, but I feel like no one really cared for Muhney’s Adam and it actually appalls me!
    On the bright side, the sentencing wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be. I thought Adam was going to be executed by Lethal Injection and the truth of who actually killed Delia would have been revealed as he’s being killed,

    I get what you are saying & I agree. I like JH a lot,he does a very good job,but MM will always be the heart & soul & epitome of the character of Adam Newman to me. I love MM Best & will always wish he was back. But,since I cannot have MM, I will take Adam Newman anyway I can get him.

    Reply

    Harry replied

    Chadam, I am not sure what you mean. Do you mean that the viewers never cared for MM’s for Adam or the characters?
    Because Jack always stood by Adam while Chelsea waffled between love and hate. Billy and Victoria are not concerned about Adam but understand that forgiving him is the only way they can achieve internal peace. Others continue to hate Adam just as they always did—Nikki, Nicholas, Kevin, Esther, Jill, Ashley, etc, etc. Who knows what Victor is up to. If you are referring to the viewers, well I can tell you that Michael Muhney has always enjoyed a huge and loyal fan base which continues to this day. Check out his Twitter page for proof of what I ascertain. So, I am not sure what you mean. I will say that Justin has achieved the impossible–he has managed to find his footing as a deeply conflicted man who is neither all good or all bad.
    One person who always stood by Adam was Sharon and unfortunately she hasn’t even been told that Adam is back in the land of the living.

    I think NuAdam is softer and has better abs so people tend to give Mr. Hunk the benefit of the doubt. Think of it like this, if Jack Black kills someone he is a creepy bastard! If Channing Tatum kills someone, ah he must have been provoked! Thats life Harry!

    CeeCee replied

    Lol. The Adam verdict was extraordinarily stupid, Chadam. Firstly, it was an accident; however, it seemed like a murder trial to me. If anything, it would have been manslaughter ( my dad said so)…there was no intent. Secondly, the trial should have been about identity theft, not killing Delia accidentally. So many discrepancies…..Adam was shot by Billy, he was disabled for months on end….none of this came out because the PTB make their own laws….so stupid. Ten years? For what? It was an accident in which Adam had no clue it even happened, at the time. It’s a soap, we should just accept it, I guess.
    I wish I could explain why the characters did not show the same concern for Michael M as they do for Hartley. That is definitely the PTB’s doing. Perhaps, it was because of everything nasty going on behind the scenes and there was a lot of tension.

    It’s between Chloe and Kevin. Wow, when did Kevin get his halo? He commits crimes on a daily basis by hacking computers. And, lest we forget his monumental crimes: ummmm, let’s see….; he raped young girls; locked Coleen in a freezer, arson, attempted murder…etc. there must be more; I just can’t think of any more, right now.
    I do believe that while Adam is hanging on to dear life in hospital, the true culprit will be identified….well, I hope, anyway.
    I agree with Annette. Sage knows exactly what went down that night.

    I must emend: Randy brought up a most significant point: Ian Ward. He hadn’t even crossed my mind. But, this guy trying to kill Adam makes so much sense. And, since he’s off the show….wheel…
    However, there’s one little nagging thought. Isn’t Ian under maximum security in prison, after his clandestine escapades? Is he working with someone on the outside?

    I really hope it’s not Chloe… she has so many ties to Genoa City… don’t you just miss Chance III ? the magic with Kevin is always ON.

    I love Randy’ post : that while away she was preggers ! ? ! ? they simply cannot waste this opportunity… should Y& R contract and Elizabeth Hendrickson’ want to come home… dang , she’s so lovely

    there are so many avenues from which to tell Chloe story

    Chloe has a child by : Billy “Abbott” ; Kevin Fischer ; what if she were preggers by the uber handsome Chance III , John Driscoll

    PS: ex-Chance III, John Driscoll… would have been a much better Philip Kiriakis’ of DAYS… now being played by John Paul Lavoisier

    I loved Chance myself, Patrick. But, it’s Mackenzie I long to see back on Y$R…the original, that is…Ashley Bashioum.
    I assumed …(I think Timmm said it also) Chloe had another child on her first day back, due to that mysterious conversation she had on her cell. You’re right…there’s an entire ‘pregnant’ story to be told there. Lol. I pray, Elizabeth will remain as part of the Y&R family. But, Lordy Lord, not with Kevin as her other ‘half’. I am not liking his holier-than-thou attitude right now. It took me a while to get to a place where I loved Kevin, but lately, my resentment for him of his past deeds is resurfacing…slowly rising its ugly head. Later.

    I thought Sage could have been the driver, as well, Ron. But, the more I think about it, the more she seems too soft to do something so despicable and keep it a secret. However, it could very well have been the real Gabriel. Maybe he’s not really dead….OOOOOHH, the plot thickens. Lol.

    Mo replied

    Hmmmm….interesting.

  21. Mary SF says:

    At first I thought it would be Chloe because she is not really part of the show anymore, so we don’t have to see another major character “go to jail” in order to “get out of jail” soon after. Chloe would have to reveal she has a baby and that would start another new drama for Billy. But then I saw how pissed Ashley was with Adam and after all he did to her, it might be cool if she was the one who gave Adam the punishment everyone thought he deserved. Then my last thought, maybe it was the real hit and run driver that killed Delia— thinking if Adam was dead, the matter would be put to rest forever and no one would figure out they were the one who hit Delia– but who that person would be is anyone’s guess.

    HaHa, damien, I like it. It’s too funny to see Jill thrown in jail. That would really be a plot twist. It would not be so far-fetched. Dalia was/is her granddaughter.
    On a different note, damien, am I the only one to not feel anything for Billy’s so-fake pain? I am a cryer…very emotional. But, he did not stir any pity whatsoever. I think the fact that Burgess and little Delia never interacted as father and daughter has a lot to do with it. However, I will admit that this guy just turns me off in anything he does or says. I just FF his scenes as much as possible. He just isn’t credible in my eyes. Wow…he had an epiphany and forgave Adam. What was that all about, anyway. Are we supposed to like him now?

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    Burgess shows no emotions! I remember him kissing Chelsea. It was like he was kissing his 97 year old great grandma! I dont care if he didnt act opposite of little Delia, he is an actor and he needs to put himself in a place where he should be able to channel the emotions of losing a daughter. Nice guy, bad casting job!

    Ron replied

    Ditto– the “acting” wasn’t genuine or believable. He just doesn’t have the right stuff to be Billy.

    Mo replied

    I HATE Burgess as Billy. He cannot act. I should have felt something in those emotional scenes he did, but I didn’t. We need a new Billy STAT!

  23. Geri L says:

    If you watch the car revving up, it looks like male shoes
    Could be Kevin but he left court with Mariah and Esther
    Billy was with Victoria but that doesn’t mean he or Chloe didn’t
    hire somebody to do it

    I still don’t believe Adam hit Delia. Victor needs to look at that
    driver list again. I don’t like that Billy, Nick, Ashley and other
    Adam haters are at the hospital claiming they care about what happened to
    Adam.

    The only ones that care are Chelsea, Jack, Victor, Sage etc
    The rest of them can jump off a bridge

    Well, to answer the question, it seems Chloe is the obvious choice. But she is too obvious so I do not believe it will be her. I also think Kevin is too obvious and he also did not have time to go out and rent a car in order to do the deed. Whomever it was, they were not in the courthouse. Maybe the person who ran over Adam is the person who hit Delia and let Adam take the blame. All I can do is guess–Ian Ward, Heather Williams or Krazy Kelly.

    CeeCee replied

    Hmmmm, great deduction, Harry. Whoever hit Adam was obviously not in the courtroom….he/she would not have had enough time….this was methodically planned out. And, the same person could have run over Delia. Convenient? Of course. But, there’s something to be said about killing two birds with one stone.

    Please forgive the accidental pun. I certainly did not intentionally mean to sound neither sarcastic
    nor so callous.

    Maybe Delia is not dead and she stole Kevin’s car and ran over Adam. Yes, I’m sure thats what happened! Ha,ha,ha!

    @Harry and Timmm.
    Hello, my guys:
    You are at it again, both of you. You’re killing me. Too funny.
    Idiot Christine? I never thought about it. But, yeah, what are the chances of getting hit so many times? Maybe it’s Cricket’s hair….it’s like a beacon, it just attracts riff-raff.

    CeeCee replied

    @Timmm.
    Why would Adam get run over if he as going to jail, anyway?
    Well, my theory is; and I stated this earlier, the person that actually did kill Delia cannot afford to have Adam alive. I think Adam must have suppressed memories of the accident, and is therefore, liable to remember something, sooner or later. As long as the real killer thought, as everyone else, that Adam was dead, he/she felt safe. But, now? Well….not so safe anymore, not with Adam alive. Yup, that’s what I think, Timmy.

    And speaking of accidents, how many times have characters on Y&R been run over by cars?
    That idiot Christine has been hit twice–once by Phyllis and another time by Neil
    Then you have sweet Delia and now Adam.
    Wasn’t Sabrina, Victor’s much younger wife, also hit by a car?

    Timmm replied

    But why would the same person run over Adam when he was just sentenced to 10 years?

    So, Harry. It was Chloe, after all…the most obvious culprit. The writers did a number on me.
    However, the other stuff about Jensen still stands.
    My theory may be ‘rough’ around the edges, but, I agree with Kay. Jensen’s character is an integral part of what happened.
    I need your wise, sensible take on this, Harry.

    ON another subject which is Y&R related, it seems clear that Joe set up Cane.
    Also, where has Michael E Knight been? He was not on all week–truly disappointing.
    Characters I hate lately–that grim, joyless sour puss Christine. Does this woman ever smile? She seems to think everything is about her and I cannot stand her—never could.
    Ashley–she’s become shrill, mean and narcissistic. As Billy, Jack and even Adam continue to grow as human beings, she just becomes nastier. And she looks ridiculous with Stitch and I hate that dress with the long zipper on the back which she has been wearing all week.
    Justin Hartley seems to bring out the best in Eric Braeden–those two have had some amazing scenes together and they both keep getting better.
    Sorry to veer off topic but it’s been a while since there has been a Y&R thread and I had to get some things off my chest.

    I’ve only been watching for a while…full time since Victor hired Mariah to haunt Sharon. It seems Sharon can never get a break. Has it always been that way? I thought Mariah had a lot of potential, but she seems underused. And Ashley has always been narcissistic to me. Love the scenes between Victor and Adam.

    Ashley has always been sweet, Rose. I don’t know why she’s become so hard. Perhaps a little bit of Kristen DiMera rubbed off on her? Lol.
    Sharon has always been kicked around by no other than that sewer rat-stripper, Nikki Reed. You know, the one whose nose is always directed skyward, smelling things no ordinary person ever could? Ahhh, the hypocrisy, eh? Victor used to be pretty decent with Sharon…sort of a confidant. I thought they had a true friendship until Sharon’s mind became full of holes and almost brought his company to a screeching halt. She was doing so much better. However, for some reason, Sharon has become the town martyr or punching bag; depending on how one looks at it. It’s the never-ending story…they’re at it, again. Poor Sharon.

    I’m with you. I don’t even care anymore about the Hilary storyline. It was dumb from the start. Why couldn’t Devon and Hilary just go off on their honeymoon for the duration of Mishael’s maternity leave? I understand that would have left Bryton in limbo, but ‘they’ could have come up with a much more feasible and edible plot. I gave up….come what may…..stupid and double stupid.

    There is a reason Chloe’s first scenes, when she arrived back in town, had her wearing a blonde wig. She removed that wig at the memorial before she made her presence known to her family and friends. If she wanted to be seen as herself to people who knew her, what possible reason could she have for wearing the wig at all? In my opinion, she wore the wig to rent the car and she wore the wig to check into the motel. Now they have found the vehicle that hit Adam at the motel. They will question the motel owner and the rental place and being the keystone cops they are, will look for a woman with blonde hair.

    What an extremely well-written episode!!! It is great to be able to come onto these boards and post something positive about these shows!! I was engrossed for the full hour. The Cane stuff was a little less interesting, just because it’s kind of been there and done that…Cane being accused of a crime, Lily being torn…and repeat. But the whole courtroom scene, that was the culmination of a long two years and involved all the major players! There was real truth and humanity in the writing. It was a character driven episode with all kinds of layers and shades of brilliance. I know Emmy submissions for Best Drama are usually more “showy”, or have something really special in terms of production values, but this episode could definitely win for Best Writing. We can all say (and have said many times) what we will about Pratt and Phelps, regarding all their past missteps, but when they can knock it out of the park, they do. And the dialogue writers were on fire!! Esther’s words were especially powerful which was nice to see because usually she just spouts gibberish. This really is what soap operas are about. And the ending with the hit and run now sets up a new mystery and a whole new storyline. I really hope the writers are going to plan to have Adam NOT be the killer as we have all hoped all along. Being branded a child killer is a very heavy thing to saddle a long term character with. Having it be someone else frees Adam up to truly get on with his life. When this show stays away from doppelgangers and plot driven madness, it can be SO good!! Yesterday’s episode proves it!! I also like Billy and Victoria together again. No one can recapture the Billy and Victoria magic of yore…that was lightning in a bottle. I will never fully see Burgess as Billy…sometimes on soaps, recasts are seamless, and others, when you see their face, all you can see is a big, flashing RECAST sign on their forehead. But he has certainly had an uphill battle in this role, and he has a quiet maturity that makes the character different. Billy Miller was like the little boy who needed a hug, whereas Burgess seems like the man trying to grow up. He is slowly winning me over. What I really wish is that Pratt would bring some of his late 90′s Melrose Place qualities to the show. EVERYONE was addicted to that show!! It was like people couldn’t wait from week to week to see what happened!! It was because you never knew what the characters were going to do next. And you really rooted for the couples!! This show has some great couples in place….Kevin/Mariah, Jack/Phyllis, Michal/Lauren, Cane/Lily, Devon/Hillary…they just need to focus the stories on these relationships and let the couples be the stars. One little complaint…why is this show seemingly unable to give poor Noah a storyline? Just when him and Courtney were growing on me, she died. Now this…this…woman…who appears about 15 years older than him, and for no reason should he be interested in her is just suddenly there! I don’t get it. I don’t get why they are building a story and a past and a background around Marisa when the character/storyline is ALREADY D.O.A.

    Excellent post indeed, Dylan. Yes, Marissa is drop dead gorgeous but that can only sustain my interest for a few minutes. Her story is dull as the color of Cricket’s hair.
    I don’t know how old the actor who plays Noah is but the actress who plays Marissa is only twenty-five.
    I think it’s clear that Joe set up Cane so he can get his greasy paws on Lily. Duh Yawn is really irritating me because he believes the worst of Cane and yet, Cane believed in his innocence when everyone suspected him of hurting his wife.

    CeeCee replied

    Perfect post, Dylan…as usual…..just one small detail. Sofia/Marissa is 26. Robert/Noah is 30. This girl is another God’s creation to whom my husband would refer as, ‘poetry in motion’.
    I agree with your couples of choice except for Jack and Phyllis. This couple is the most mismatched pair ever. Now, he’s old enough to be her father, for sure.
    I think there is something very special blossoming between Noah and Marissa if the seed were given the chance to be cultivated. No one can find happiness, so why should Noah be any different? Victor is a very tenacious, devious, controlling despot. Now, I like plot twists and drama as much as anyone, but this supposed Spaniard ( does not fit the physiognomy of one) with a very Italian name, is a joke. There is no cohesion or coherence here, unless Luca is involved with Marco. I would also bet that Victor knows where Marissa’s child is….not only that, but I think Luca’s family has her. So there it is. How invested are we with this story? I am not, honestly! So, I am as confused as you are about the importance of creating this mystery around Marissa. I actually do not mind her. But all this negative history about a young woman who is married, had a child, was involved with a criminal (Marco) old enough to be her grandfather…well, I just don’t buy it. It is STUPID. She must have started her adventures at the age of ten? Makes no sense, years-wise.
    I was too young for MELROSE PLACE, but I hear enough about it from family members; and, as yourself, they went back for more each and every week, with anticipation. So, I shall follow your lead and wish that the remaining soaps could draw that much attention and interest, as both the daytime and primetime soaps of yore did.

    Its funny how some people see things one way and others another! I agree with your opinion. Others complained that forensics wasnt involved and this and that. There isnt enough time or budget to make everything realistic. Plus, we all hate that stories drag and having the courtroom look and feel like LA Law would have drug down the story. We got the best case scenario, all the cast members there who are involved in the story and all seemed to put their two cents in! One great point you made and I will elaborate on it, I was warming up to Courtney and Noah and I also thought Kevin and Harding were gold! Thats two characters they killed off who were getting really interesting. Bad move Y&R!

    Judy, that is what I was thinking.
    Also, the person behind the wheel really demonstrated what a hit and run and willful intent really look like.
    Adam did not know he hit Delia and he got out of the car to make sure he did not hit Dash the dog. How is that hit and run?
    What Adam was guilty of was tampering with evidence and not coming forward when he realized he may hit Delia.

    I agree with you Harry but I wonder if 10 years for leaving the scene of a crime is a bit much. They (Chelsea/Victor/ even Billy thought it was an accident so even if he didn’t do it what country would give him 10 yrs.? Trying to remember back to that period of time there we’re so many people who hated Adam. I even wonder although I know Victor loves his son. He loves his wife (Nikki) more and remember she was driving an SUV that looked like the one that was reported being seen. Would Victor pin it on Adam to protect Nikki?

    CeeCee replied

    Yes, of course, it could, Judy. The person who hit Delia probably wants any potential evidentiary evidence to come out. As long as Adam is alive, he may remember something vital which has been dormant all this time. By the same token, it could just be an act of revenge by anyone.

    I believe it was Chloe because if it isn’t now that the memorial is over as well as the trial, she will just leave and go back wherever she lives now with her new daughter. If they pin the blame on her and put her in jail awaiting a trial she will be forced to tell Kevin about the baby. I say Kevin because although she stole Billy’s sperm from the hospital, she slept with Kevin the night before she left so she covered her tracks. I don’t know if they gave E.H. a contract but if it was her she would go to jail and Kevin would take the child which would lead to another story but if she lets Billy know then knowing her mental background since Dee Dee’s death he’ll go for permanent custody and Chloe would be in jail and that would be the end of the story. I don’t believe Adam hit Delia. When he got home that night he never noticed anything wrong with the car. Whoever hit Delia planted that scarf in his tire wheel and smashed his front light. Remember Nikki was driving the same type SUV as Adam. Paul questioned her. Was she drinking at the time? I can’t remember.

    I never thought Adam hit Delia but I’m fine with it now and accept it. I think the courtroom scenes were killer. Adam will never spend much time in jail – that character has too much to do. I believe it will be Chloe who ran him down. She will be caught and tried and will go away to jail. She’s not on the show anymore so it doesn’t matter what happens to her. Except that once again, a grieving mother who lost a child and then her mind does something terrible and goes to jail. Or dies. Its so soap cliche and sad.

    Who hit Adam – the obvious would be Chloe or Ian. But if it feels so obvious, it probably isn’t either of them. So, I’m going to say Sage.

    No way it’s Chloe. They pretty much have indicated she has another kid. Remember…before she left town she slept with Kevin and she stole Billy’s sperm sample. They are going to begin a story of “who is the daddy of this kid?” and Chloe will be front and center as will Kevin so he didn’t do it either. Odds are it is a dispensable character which makes it either Ian or Esther (who basically does nothing on the show).

    As for baby Christian, Sharon’s psychiatrist is going to steal the baby and make Sharon believe she gave birth to it. I think she must be related to the girl whose diving career was ended by Nick…so it’s a revenge story.

    Ahh– per Tuesday’s episode, we are spared another whodunit! The real downer is that Chloe has become totally off-balance, the entire “hat disguise” is too sophomoric and spoils the great scenes of Adam. I am getting a little tired of the imbalance (actually, a lot tired) of writing. More great Victor moments today spoiled by cruddy Stitch dialogue. I did, however, like Abbey’s spin on the power of faith… a throwback to the early Y and R years.
