72 July 8th, 2015 Y&R’s Justin Hartley and Melissa Claire Egan Preview How Chelsea Learns Gabe is Adam Newman!

Courtesy/CBS

Next Monday on the July 13th episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) will finally learn that the guy she has the ‘hots’ for (Gabe) is actually her believed-to-be-dead husband, Adam Newman (Justin Hartley)!

Just how does it all come about and what are the turn of events?  Two of daytime’s best and hottest performers: Justin Hartley and Melissa Claire Egan previewed the big reveal on the CBS Sudser with Michael Logan at TV Insider. 

Apparently, the moment occurs after a gloating Adam, when standing before the portrait of his father Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), kind of blurts out that he is indeed Victor’s son, Adam … and Chelsea overhears him!

Hartley weighed in on the reveal saying:  “After Adam gets caught, there’s a choice he can make. He can try to get out of it by saying, ‘Hey, Chelsea, I was just making a joke!’ And he sort of starts to go down that road but then he doesn’t. He chooses in that moment to not give Chelsea an excuse, and I think it’s because of his love for her. Enough is enough. He realizes that as good as everything seems to be with their relationship, it is still broken at its core.”   The actor went on to say, “We’ve all been in that position where we’ve lied and then the truth comes out and at first you’re, like, ‘S–t! That sucks. I am such an idiot!’ But then you’re going, ‘Whew! It actually feels good to get that off my chest.’ But Adam also thinks he can fix this. He thinks he can fix anything.”

Egan related: “In those first moments, she’s all about trying to embrace the fact that Adam is alive. But then all the questions start coming, like, ‘How could you lie to me about Delia?’ In the episode after the big reveal, a lot of her questions get answered.”

So looking forward to the big moment when Chelsea learns Adam is alive?  How long do you think it will be before the rest of Genoa City and the Newman and Abbott clan’s catch-on?  Share your thoughts and theories below!

    I think it has to happen as just about the same time of the Marco/Jack reveal to further throw the town into chaos.

    I also hope that for once, Victor pays BIG for the disgusting actions he has taken. If they try to make him sympathetic in any way they have truly missed the mark.

    Why? Why ? Why? Should Chelsea and Adam be a couple? She never understood or really loved him like Sharon did. I wish someone would post they remember Sharon and Adam and the lengths they went thru to be Romeo and Juliet lovers. I NEED MY SHADAM FIX sorry everyone Dylan is nice but he was supposed to be Sharons brother Not Nicks and Dylan is sleepy and not what Sharon needs

    NOOOOOOOOOO I dont like Chelsea with Adam at all one bit! NOOOOO . I thought Adam forever loved Sharon. I hate when a new writer comes in and does not do his homework , Sharon and Adam are amazing and I want to see them again together. Why is Dylan with Sharon and Sage with Nick? Let this baby be Adams Sage has and Sharon is back with Adam or Nick

    If Chelsea forgives him she is dumber then I think she sounds all the time with that baby voice. Adam clearly does not respect or trust or love Chelsea enough to be honest with her but he can be with Sage and Jack?

    Adam’s huge love for Chelsea is exactly why he hasn’t been able
    to tell her yet. Would be too terrifying to think she may not understand,
    (even though he knows deep down he can trust her.) and then lose her
    and Connor completely. But Monday will be great I hope!

    I think Melissa Claire Egan has a perfectly nice voice.

    well I’m surprise they are doing this in the summertime but it sounds like it really happens and it isn’t just a dream or in someone’s head, so I’m looking forward to it. No that he is with Chelsea it makes sense she will find out and be force to decide does she keep his secret or does she rat him out to the police

    I agree CeeCee, she will be pissed of his betrayal BUT will realize that one, she loves him and two, if his identity is revealed he is still the number one suspect of dear old Delia’s death.

    CeeCee replied

    @ Timmm.
    Exactly, Timmm. As you say, she will be pissed off….but, never will she betray him.

    Danielle replied

    I think she will tell because he never loved her he loved Sharon from what I remember all those years. Chelsea was forced to live with Adam because of her lying pregnancy once again. WHY DOES CHELSEA ALWAYS GET A PASS FOR WHAT SHE DID TO BILLY AND VICTORIA? She raped and drugged him and gave away Johnny like trash! NOT HAPPY FOR CHADAM! Period

    Kim Huck replied

    I want Sharon and Adam! We never see Adam mention her and they spent New Orleans and wedding and fighting for the love they had . So many years of heartbreaking love to be together

    I love the new Adam, he has great chemistry with Chelsea. I do not like the new Billy, nor do a
    lot of the people on the forums. An easy out would be that Billy was behind the wheel of the car that killed Delia, he shot Adam because he was going to reveal that he was using again or cheating on Victoria, which caused the car to swerve, kill Delia and the real Gabe Bingham. Then we get rid of this Billy. He doesn’t have chemistry with anyone. Then Adam is cleared, and he has Newman away from Victor. Either way Sage’s baby is a Newman, so she is set. #YRInsider,#YandR_CBS, #SaveYR

    When Delia was hit, Billy was in that little convenience store, wasn’t he? I clearly remember that. Billy came out, and both the dog and Delia were gone. Then, he found Delia in the bushes. But it’s a soap. The writers can spin it anyway they want.
    I think the best candidates are a drunken Nikki, and/or crazy Maureen. Just a thought!

    If I remember correctly, when we heard tires screeching, all we saw was the dog. But, I think, Adam assumed he killed Delia….I believe Adam drove through after the accident had already happened. Dash, the dog, took off. Could the pet somehow hold a clue?…….hurry up and find that dog, Adam. LOL.

    Harry replied

    Cee Cee, you’re right with your deconstruction. I just want to underscore the fact that Adam did not assume he had hit little Delia until the next day. I know YOU know that but it bothers me that it is not mentioned on the show. He left the scene of the accident not knowing that he had hit the girl.
    On another note, I knew something tragic was going to happen to poor Delia when they decided to name her Cordelia. Delia is short for Cordelia–this is the name of King Lear’s youngest, and sweetest daughter. When Cordelia is killed as the result of the sins of her father, King Lear cries,”My poor fool is dead.”
    A play on words, of course, but you get the point.

    Barb replied

    I was reading it was Kelly that killed her, the real Jack knows. But who knows for sure.

    Mo replied

    Billy didn’t hit Delia, but he does share in the blame as he left her alone in the car.

    CeeCee replied

    @Harry.
    WOW, Harry. You never stop impressing me. To be honest with you, I did not make the connection with Shakespeare’s Cordelia. I should have, I know.
    The name is equivalent to bad omen. Good call. Thank you for that, Harry.

    Timmm replied

    I think Sage killed Delia.

    Mary SF replied

    Okay, we must remember there has been two changes in head writers since the story of Dee’s death. We have no idea how Mr. Griffith would have penned that story since he quit and JFP and her minions used that story to get rid of MM. So any clues we saw when it first aired are moot because Mr. Pratt can rewrite history any way he sees fit.

    As many pointed out there was a name Kelly on that list that owned a black SUV, so perhaps the original plan was Billy falling in love with Kelly and then she would turn out to be the one to ran down Deliah. But the way they played Kelly after Ms Altman took over as writer doesn’t connect to someone who would have run down a child and not say anything about it, of course then Pratt made her a bit looney, so it could still be feasible to pinned it on her.

    My thought at one time was they were going to make Mason the real hit and run driver. Mason was Hilary’s boy toy who was working with her to get back at Neil. The reason I thought it was Mason was his reaction when Devon offered a million dollars for intel on who the driver might be; he was awful nervous and seemed guilty, he left town shortly after that. He was slimy enough to be the type of person to hit a child and then take off.

    At this point, Pratt can do anything he wants– but if I was writing this, I wouldn’t make the real driver any of the characters on screen now or ever. At this point I would just write some random person from out of town who did it; They were too scared to come forward, but then now they found out they are dying, so to clear their conscience they return to GC and confess to Paul what really happened. That is the route I would take.

    Lucia replied

    Remember when Victor had that list of names of people who had black SUVs like Adam’s and he was crossing names off the list to see if any of those SUVs had been in an accident? Since I record the show, I remember pausing on the list and the name Kelly Wilson was on the list. This was around the time that Kelly and Billy slept together and she had a prominent presence in the main storyline but no real backstory.

    Anyway, at the time I thought for sure they were going to spin it and make Kelly the driver and absolve Adam of all wrongdoing. It seemed plausible that Kelly had come to town under a different last name. But then I thought, how bizarre and cruel of the writers to make a woman who had lost her son in a car accident take the life of another child while driving her car. And THEN I thought, maybe the story of her dead son was a cover for something else. Maybe she never had a son named Sam. And THEN I thought, there is no way Adam hit her. He wasn’t drunk; yes he was speeding, but wouldn’t he have felt the impact? How did he get that crack in his front light? And he did stop his vehicle and just saw the dog. So his senses were heightened, he would have felt that he had hit someone. No? Yes? What? Why? WHY?!?! This has gone on too long!!!

    And now I’m thinking that Nikki did it because she was drinking back then, wasn’t she? And that reveal would DEFINITELY get her to sober up. But that would be her second homicide…after doing away with Diane Jenkins. So…yeah, I think Adam is going to carry this albatross around his neck forever.

    And since I mentioned pausing a recorded show , did anyone else pick up the typo on the DNA test that Ashley read the other day? About how the DNA sample could not be “EXCUDED” , rather than EXCLUDED? You’d think they would have the time to spellcheck. Jeez.

    Thanks for brining up LEAR (my favorite to teach!) Cordelia was killed defending her father’s kingdom, even after he banished her. When Lear arrives on stage with her dead body, he repeats, “Howl, howl, howl, howl, howl, howl”– no words in the English language to describe the pain a parent feels with a child’s death. ONCE AGAIN, had the writers any true foresight (instead of their continual cheap gimmicks) they’d put the UMPPHH back in the show.

    Nancy replied

    If we had Michael M we would have our Sharon and Adam back for sure. Like why did they not have Adam tell Sharon who he told everything to. Why bring Sage into this show when Sharon and Adam would do everything possible to save the other . I love Shadam no Chadam for me. Plus he can’t tell Chelsea the truth for a year so um what does that say Hmmmmm

    Reply

    Mary SF replied

    I agree they missed an opportunity when “Gabe” first came to town and he tested out his new face first with Sharon. If I had been writing it I would of had Sharon recognize him as Adam right off– that would have fitted with the history of those two characters and still left some hope that they might find their way back to each other. But the direction they took Adam after MM left and the way they are writing Sharon, I seriously doubt they will ever be a couple again until there is a change in writer or producers.

    Actually, Melissa, that makes so much sense. The real Gabe and Sage! Perfect. Kill two birds with one stone. If this is, indeed, how the accident went down, do you think Adam knows? Did he and Sage strike a deal, each keeping his/her silence? Very interesting.

    Mary SF replied

    Personally I would love to ask Josh Griffith who he had planned to be the real hit and run driver. The character Sage didn’t even exist when he penned this story. The only one who really knows how that story should have turned out is him. Of course Pratt can rewrite history any way he might like, but in my opinion, since Sage wasn’t even a character at the time, it would be silly to make her the driver now.

    Reply

    Lucia replied

    I completely agree, Mary!!! It was so clear in how Griffiths left details ambiguous that Adam could not have done it. He didn’t even know he had hit anyone until the next day. Plus, the fact that he stopped the car when he saw the dog indicates that even though he was speeding, he wasn’t driving recklessly enough to not notice a figure in the road.

    It also seemed that the writers didn’t know what to do with the character of poor Kelly. She came to town with a flimsy storyline of having lost a child in the same way Billy did. Since a “Kelly Wilson” was listed on the list of people to whom black SUVs were registered, I wondered if it was going to prove to be Kelly who was driving that night, distraught over the revelation of her affair with Billy. Then Cady McClain came on board, and the character of Kelly got more depth…and then, the writing regime changed and she veered off into another universe.

    I agree it would be silly to have Sage be the driver now but I wouldn’t be surprised if they do something like that. I keep trying to forget that Sharon married Victor after having been married to Nick and Adam – and then she got back together with Nick and all I could think about was how gross it was that she slept with Victor. But it’s clear they’re going to go in that direction with the nasty Abby-Ashley-Stitch love triangle….it’s like reading Ovid’s Metamorphoses!!

    Lucia replied

    My last paragraph may not make sense but what I was getting at was that often the writers expect us to forget or kindly “forget” the details so they can expand a storyline as they see fit. Sharon’s marriage to Victor is rarely brought up because it is so gross to think about …yet we all know it happened.

    Here I am with foot in mouth!!! When Y&R decided to replace the last Adam Newman I laughed and thought “well that will never go over with the fan’s”. Day one Justin covered head to toe like a mummy in bed just didn’t work for me at all. I actually skipped a few episode’s. Then one day tuned in as Justin (still covered head to toe) waved Sage over to the bed. He kept saying (in a whisper) closer. She kept talking and got her ear down as close to his mouth as she could as he said “Shut Up”. That day for me Adam was reborn and he’s been Adam ever since. Anybody else remember that or when Justin became Adam? I love J.H. with M.C.E. I think they play well off each other and their both beautiful people.

    they gave the Michael/Adan fans over a year to calm down and waiting over a year to bring in a New Adam worked out well..
    If they would have recast Adam within a couple of months I think it would have been a different outcome..

    Mary SF replied

    Justin is okay, but as slimy as Adam could be, MM had a way to make me see the wounded boy inside of him that didn’t always condone his actions, but at least had me believing Adam never did anything from an evil intent. I don’t find Justin’s take on Adam has the same vulnerability–I am getting used to him, but he hasn’t wow me yet.

    Reply

    madluv4u replied

    I agree. I think Justin is doing a really good job, but he lacks vulnerability. I would sympathize with MM, but not with Justin’s take on the character, but he’s still quite good.
    Also as a side note, i think that Justin’s Adam is kinda too too young for Sharon, although she looks great for her age, but then pairing would be off, imo.

    I just want it explained, once and for all, that ADAM was NOT responsible for killing Delia!

    I would think someone would know if they ran over an elementary school child. This bologna has gone on too long. Why didn’t they use the time Adam pretended to be Gabe to investigate Delia’s death instead of all the corporate machinations? I never believed Adam would run over Delia. Adam may be many things, but not that. It was someone else.

    Now that Nikki has fallen down the rabbit hole even further, why don’t they just come out and say it was she who ran over Delia? Lord knows Nikki has not hit “rock bottom” yet. I guess killing Diane Jenkins was not rock bottom so why not have her be responsible for Delia too. I am sure these “writers” could find a way to make Nikki Teflon again.

    To those of you who don’t like Adam with Chelsea all I have to say is that the two have a child together. That changes everything. All the stuff with Sharon in the past might have been fun to watch. But for the show to be real, Adam needs to come back and reclaim his FAMILY..you know the one Billy stole from him..Adam has a boy and for this story to feel real he should want to be in his son’s life and not Sharon’s.

    Right, Joe. I loved Sharon with Michael Muhney….but, I have reservations having Justin and Sharon as a couple.
    Nonetheless, I don’t think Chelsea and Gabe/Adam mesh….perhaps, the very person who knows his secret? Marissa? This girl garners/reaps mystery and sensuality….but, more importantly, I sense loyalty in her. I saw something between her and Noah, but, for some inexplicable reason, I see Noah as a boy. Marissa is too much woman for Noah. We shall see what TPTB have in store for us. At this point, the storyline, as fresh as it is, can go in any direction.

    Y & R has a great story line! Jack has shown fabulous acting talent. Still I miss the days when Victor adored Sharon and Adam was her great love! there doesn’t seem to be much chemistry though between Sharon and Justin not the same as with Michael Muhney. Hopefully there’s a Sage and Marco connection to the real killing of Billy’s daughter Delia. To free Adam from the crime!

    All three actors who have portrayed Adam have been good but Michael Muhney is one of the best actors in the history of daytime.The current writing and production regime has destroyed this once great show which has,with a succession of bad writers and worse management,been in decline for years.It’s truly a shame.
