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!
