THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Are The Santoris Behind The Kidnapping Of Adam Newman?



This week after Victor (Eric Braeden) sent Adam (Justin Hartley) overseas on an urgent business matter, he ends up kidnapped and thrown in an elevator right outside his own penthouse!

Late, Victor learns Adam did not get on the Newman jet or check into his desigated hotel in Spain.

Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) is unglued and believes something terrible had happened to Adam!  All signs look that Adam’s disappearance may be tied to the Santoris and that Luca (Miles Gaston Villenueva) has double-crossed the Newmans.  But Luca may actually not have known, or did he?

Is this an all out power struggle between the waring Santori and Newman clans … or, is something else going on here?  After the jump, watch next week’s promo from CBS Daytime and then weigh-in via the comment section below!

    I love the show. I think the new recasts combined with the current cast has upped the game in talent and the feel of the show.

    But I don’t get the menacing aspects of the characters. IAN was a cartoon and never did anything from the get go to make him an evil being. Nor was Joe Clark even in the end (a lot of who joe was perceived as was based on Dylan – someone who was the same – and averys lie.

    Even Marco never came close to evil incarnate that has been victor. Now Luca Santori is suppose to be evil along with his never seen or heard from father?

    My point is I just don’t care.

    And I hope that when Jack hears that Adam was kidnapped he says “my family is right here. Sorry, Chelsea, Adam is not part of that anymore. He chose victor instead of being a man.”

      So you “love the show” but “just don’t care” about the pointless direction the show has been in since last year??

      Totally agree! Just not feeling the Santori clan since Day 1. They are a hot mess with Marisa seemingly switching loyalties constantly. They should have introduced some real competition for Victor & Company and let it develop so we could care about what is going on. Luca is good looking but his acting skills are not strong, Marisa is a snooze and the old man, unless they pull off something /someone really outrageously
      great, can’t be too much a threat.
      They need to pull a Dallas dream sequence here (well, actually they should have done that with the Marco thing, but I digress) and have it all be a bad dream of, say Chelsea’s. Have her (or whomever selected) wake up, and move on. Then if you want a family to threaten Victor & Co., wait a bit and then try something. The sky is the limit with casting here! Just make it interesting, make us care about what is going on, and cast with dynamic actors!

      That is simply not true. When Adam & Chelsea got back together Adam did not want to have anything to do with his father (Victor). They had actually almost bought a house in Paris France when Jack called Adam and needed help because of Victor & Ian. When they got back it was only suppose to be for a short time and Victor refused to let Chelsea’s 2:1 designs leave Genoa City. By the time everything was ok again, Victor found out that Sage’s baby was Adam’s and blackmailed him. If Adam leaves Newman Victor will tell Chelsea for that matter it will also upset Sage because although she had a blood test done she never got to read it, Nick took it and said it was his baby. So imagine all the upset people if Victor opens his mouth and everyone knows that old mean goat always wins.

        Sorry it was not only Chelsea’s 2:0 Victor was also claiming Grandfather right to their son( as in not allowing them to take the child out of the country)

    • CeeCee

      January 16, 2016 at 8:27 pm

      What is the moral of this Soap, then , Pjc? One does not have to be a murderer to be evil? You got it! Victor Newman is the devil incarnate. He gets away with everything. It’s fiction, of course. But, do people such as he……..of his ilk, exist in reality? I think so. I can name a few, but it would not be the thing.
      Victor is the most irreverent, heartless beast, using his professed love for his family as leverage; for personal gain, to justify the degenerate means to a warped end. He actually wanted Billy to die. And, I doubt it had anything to do with compassion, but everything to do with the left-handed, crooked deal he made with Kevin.
      Obviously Billy lives; so, does the verbal agreement he made with Kevin still stand? Is that a worry for Victor?
      Jack is the last man to throw aspersions on anyone. His hands aren’t so clean. And, I want to scream from the Bell Tower if I have to look at fake Phyllis again. Pathetic. Give Gina a dose of deviltry laced with jusuuuust a bit of honey. Ugh!! Give her a dose of Phyllis. When was she ever so lovey do ey with the Abbotts? With Jill? With Billy? With Victoria? With Nikki? Golly Gee.
      Marco is not dead. I don’t know what’s going on, but I trust Adam’s instincts; and, whether this kidnapping was a Santori doing? Well, finally we get to see what’s behind the wall. I already know I won’t like any of them. I still do not grasp the reason for having Spaniards involved in a conglomerate of Newman’s caliber. Spain? Really? I also think Marco is in league with these “Spaniards”, with an Italian name…..I know I keep saying it. The kidnapping is a double edged sword.

    If this brings Nick and Adam together as brothers then I am all for it. It has been a long time coming. This would show some much needed maturity on Nick’s part – finally forgiving his brother and working with him instead of against him.

    If Victor is to be the evil incarnate for the duration of the character’s life (let’s face it, he will NEVER change), then can we at least have the Newman children put on their big boy and girl panties, grow up and be united as one? Please!

    Every freakin’ soap cliche has been chucked at us since Pratt took over as Head Writer – nothing but retreaded, regurgitated, plot-driven garbage!!

    Something stinks and it’s the current state of “Y & R” – a steaming pile of shizz!!

    • joe

      January 17, 2016 at 9:56 am

      100% agree! Pratt doesn’t know how to write well, he just repeats one bad story line after another, and does it so poorly.

      • CeeCee

        January 19, 2016 at 10:27 am

        You bet, Joe. I try so hard not to carp. I have the nagging suspicion that Victor is at the helm, as always,…..I hope he really is not involved in his own son’s kidnapping. My gosh, he is the lowest of the low, if he is….despicable.
        Furthermore….here we go again; Sharon has fallen overboard again…we are at round one million. I think dear Dr. Anderson has prescribed a placebo for Sharon. It’s a repeat, all right, Joe….she will end up in the mental hospital again within the nutso doctor’s clutches. These people are supposedly so affluent; so smart; Dylan, now a solid, on-the-ball cop, why not investigate Dr. Anderson? Look into her past and her credentials. It is that simple.
        Forgive my tirade, but it also seems that Devon and Abby are going to get involved? Another repeat of lost love, with the birth of another triangle. Later.

    I dont care about the Santori storyline and wish Luca and Marisa would hop
    the nearest jet out of Genoa City and never come back. And I wanted Chelsea
    and Adam and Connor just happy for awhile, jeez, before more dangerous
    drama for them.

    • alexis bean

      Adam is always in the middle of trouble because victor put his son adam in the middle of it , adam always help victor win aganist his enemies

    January 16, 2016 at 1:58 pm

    I’ll be disappointed if Adam was kidnapped by the Santoris …
    It is too expected too transparent too usual, if it were the Santoris ..

    I hope Pratt has an ace up the sleeve on this one offering us a shocker..
    ((I desperately need a shocker, haven’t had one since RC left))

    • CeeCee

      January 17, 2016 at 8:52 pm

      I like the way you think, su. Hmmmmm. A shocker!! Let’s see….Luca is really Victor’s son? Or Marissa his daughter? I think the biggest shocker of all would be if Phyllis were pregnant with Marco’s baby. Too much time has passed? Yeah; too bad the writers didn’t think of that.
      Finally, Adam and Chelsea arrived in a good place; why could ‘they’ just not have given it a rest? Adam barely got his feet in the door and off he goes…kidnapping, no less.
      I have no interest in the Santoris, nor Marissa’s fluctuation between Noah and Luca. What a warped relationship…..’nite, su.

      • Timmm

        January 19, 2016 at 1:37 pm

        I thought the same thing Cee. Adam and Chelsea JUST got comfortable and now he is tied up and she is fit to be tied! And speaking of the Santori’s, not only is their nationality wrong but both of them have dropped their accents!

    • Timmm

      January 19, 2016 at 1:29 pm

      Maybe its Marco who grabbed him?

      • CeeCee

        January 19, 2016 at 3:41 pm

        Hey, Timmm.
        As it usually happens on any soap, I don’t think the writers have ‘invented’ the story behind Adam’s kidnapping. We’re just going for the ride. I had finally come to enjoy Adam and Chelsea together. The couple gave brought much needed ‘familial’ comfort to an otherwise demoralizing Genoa City. Now this.
        I hadn’t even noticed Luca dropping the ‘unspaniard’ accent….mostly because he is such an irritant to me, I hardly pay attention to him. However, Marissa ( beautiful, exotic-looking woman) , who I do like, albeit she is excess baggage, I think; lost her accent a week into her first appearance on stage. I had mentioned it, but I thought I had imagined the accent due to the fact it didn’t last long. Does anyone really care she has disappeared?
        I am actually waiting to see what’s in store for Abby and Devon. Another loser. Poor Abby. Later, my Timmm.

        Marco is alive and kicking. No way does he just disappear without having a hand in this, alexis. Too easy. I gather you are a Victor fan?

  7. elm51

    January 16, 2016 at 2:07 pm

    i don’t think the santori’s had anything to do with adam being missing – i believe that the other sponsors/backers that kevin’s partner is involved with has adam…………..
    another stupid storyline because first of all kevin would have taken the money from jack before getting involved with victor – where are tptb/writers getting these ideas from??????

    • CeeCee

      January 18, 2016 at 5:20 pm

      That’s a good premise, elm. It’s ‘The Girl’, they want! What girl? Marissa or Kevin’s partner ( forgot her name which means she’s not important to me, lol). So, why does Victor tell Luca that his father wants Marissa? Could Victor have misunderstood? Or, is he being his usual wily-as-a-fox self? Could the other backers and the Santoris be one and the same? I just cannot get into this story, at all! More romance and less adventure, please. I am not captivated. I find more pleasure watching Sage holding her baby son….another stupid travesty. Later.

  8. just sayin'

    January 16, 2016 at 2:40 pm

    Of course the Santories are behind it. Agree with Pjc-a big who cares.
    Everyone lies (Sharon – again!), everyone is distrusting (Lily and Cane),
    except of people they don’t know like Dr Anderson (why would anyone trust her?! – only Sage sees this unprofessional intrusion on their lives and of course theyll say she’s delusional due to loss of Christian – Sharon trusts her with her meds against her better judgement – Nick confides and listened to her!),
    Everyone hides the truth for fear of repercussions (blown opportunity for Noah to step up , do the right thing and have story come from there, Neil character totally destroyed) , or
    Everyone plays games with their loved ones to make them jealous (Neil/Devon/Hillary and now Nikki, the matriarch of the show has been reduced to a high school game and Victor would never believe it anyway. Certainly wouldn’t be jealous. ).
    Infantile, paranoid and negative behavior is the common denominator in Genoa City.
    Ben sets a horrible example for his son by choosing him over Abbey when the reality would be they would try to work through it together (there are other ways to test Abbey and see her step up)
    Victoria bringing her children in to say goodbye to their daddy is self serving and very out of character – seeing all those tubes, machines etc could be traumatic. and Vicky knows that. Certainly Nikki would.
    Victors and Adam are great together but their re no surprises, no growth.
    Characters are being compromised left and right. and the message is horrible.
    How characters handle life is either self flagellating or deceitful -not inspiring at all
    Bill Bell individuated his characters and wrote great stories.
    Pratt is a character rat, chewing away in the name of story. ..recycled stories.
    Billys story will probably be another revenge story, get back at Victor and Kevin. Victoria and Billy will get back together because Jason Thompson and Amelia Heinle will be on fire, and Victor will try to break them up. Nothing new there.
    Adam and Chelsea are a super couple being underplayed and as always he lies and she suspects. Where is Summer?

    • Nikki

      January 17, 2016 at 5:17 pm

      Where is Summer??? WHO CARES! The only thing going well out of all this is Summer isn’t on every day being shoved down our throats . I agree with you about Amelia & Jason. They will be a hot couple & Victor will always play the devil himself. I wish they would soften him up. I want to see Adam tell Chelsea about Sage & blow Victor’s blackmail out of the water.

      • jaybird369

        January 18, 2016 at 10:45 am

        Hey, Nikki…to me, you know what would be EVEN BETTER…N-O SUMMER, PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!! Just an idea………..


    • Timmm

      January 18, 2016 at 4:20 am

      But its a soap. If the characters were all goody two shoes, we’d be watching this on a religious channel. Soaps are constantly building people up which ever way and tearing them down only to redeem them. Even Victor gets a dose of realism from time to time and loses his memory or leaves town to search for his soul. [He is overdue!] I am entertained and thankful these people are not really in my own life. Well except for Abby!

      • Nikki

        January 18, 2016 at 11:22 am

        Your right on Tim and I love Abby too as well as Mariah but Summer is just too much. It’s not that she’s a goody-two-shoes, she just really irritates me. Her voice is like scraping a dish with a fork and she has a lisp not to mention always pouting. Im kinda hoping they send her & Kyle back to College for awhile (lifetime would be nice). What a thought a hour hour without a squeak from the mouse.

      • CeeCee

        January 18, 2016 at 5:40 pm

        Abby’s married, Timmm. LOL.
        Seriously, I get it. I love my soaps…but, just once I would love for TPTB to treat the viewer with a little more respect. We are intelligent beings and should be offered a certain amount of realism. Considering the world’s economy, why pick Spain? I know I am being repetitious and redundant, but pick a country with a stable economy. What gives?
        Victor is Victor. I am continuously complaining about him…..but we gotta give it to the guy…he is that good, as reptilian as he is. You are right, it is these kinds of villains that make the soaps go ’round. But, we also need a buffer once in a while. There is not one storyline which makes me smile or warms the heart. The stolen moments between Sage and Sully, are just that….stolen, borrowed moments. Everyone is miserable for some reason or other…except for Sharon. The poor woman is living in a dream of Anderson’s making… a bubble, on Mars. The bubble will burst; she will fall hard; beginning the misery all over again. No respite, Timmm. I want to see a little true, healthy, promising happiness…later, my friend.

    January 16, 2016 at 2:53 pm

    It makes far more sense for this to be an Ian Ward act. The Santoris are unlikely to be involved in an anti hacking project. That is totally up Ian’s alley. He knows soon enough Kevin will fill Victor in on the “woman” he will trade for Adam because he knows Kevin was involved in Internet sleuthing for info on the paragon. Time will tell………

  10. Timmm

    January 16, 2016 at 4:20 pm

    I thought Adam’s kidnapping had to do with that geeky computer girl? But anyway, if it is Luca’s family they need to cast his dad. Why not Michael Easton? I would love to see him and Eric Braeden go toe to toe!

      Michael Easton is toooo young to be Luca’s father… But he would be a
      great addition too Y&R. Bring him in as an FBI agent looking into the
      Newman/Santori connection…working along side Paul and Dylan…
      Or the Santori’s lawyer looking after their vested interest…
      Like yourself ..I thought it had to do with the computer girl who
      skipped out on her newly found partners.

      • Timmm

        January 17, 2016 at 10:50 am

        I guess your right Fanny about Michael’s age. Yeah, bring him in as FBI and investigate how you go from making Latte’s to flashing a detective’s badge without even watching ONE episode of NCIS!

        January 17, 2016 at 9:10 pm

        Good scenario, Fanny. I love it. Michael E would add that special kind of class that only he can bring. The only discordant note for me is working with Dylan. LOL. I can’t get over how easily he slipped into the role of detective. Only in soapland, my lady; only in soapland.
        Thanks also to Timmm, for bringing Michael Easton up.

    Fed up with the dark side of Young and the Restless; just too much of it. The Kelly/Jack tied up episodes were absolutely nauseating, and that is ignoring the stupidity and lack of resolution. Now the tiresome Mafia chapter is expanding. For me, I just can’t watch this kind of stuff and fast forward. That goes for the Devon, Hillary, and Neil never ending tales.

    Apologies for how negative and abrupt these comments are. They just jumped out and don’t infer any criticism of the very fine actors who find ways to work whatever is written for them.

    As the previous person mentioned, Ian pulled off a true bit of camp. The new doctor has displayed a bit of that too which was great fun. However, I find myself most grateful for the ability to fast forward when necessary.

  13. Lucia

    January 16, 2016 at 10:44 pm

    I’m so sick of another storyline that just covers up more of Victor’s lies and manipulation. He gets away with inserting Marco in Phyllis’s bed, he supposedly “saves” Adam from prison time by blackmailing the judge (by the way – WHERE IS SHE???) and then he blackmails Adam with his omniscient knowledge of Christian’s true paternity. Then he convinces Noah to cover up the fact that he backed his car over Billy – but does he blackmail his grandson? Nooooooo….that’s special sauce treatment for his one black sheep errant child, Adam. And now Adam has been kidnapped because honestly, with the collapsing of the Underground and Newman Towers in LESS THAN TWELVE MONTHS – they need another catastrophe within a nanosecond of everyone saying definitive finale goodbyes to Billy on his deathbed. GOOD LORD. Can we just have a show that doesn’t involve a live/die drama every week?

    So Adam has been kidnapped? Great. I don’t think the plot is complicated. It’s the Santori family and they want Kevin’s friend’s big technology…big whoop-dee-do.

    Marisa and Luca are beginning to grow on me, especially now that they have dropped their fake accents, but the writing for their storyline is so lame that I can’t get invested in them.

    And I can’t get invested in invisible enemies (the Santori family) who according to Marisa when she spoke to Chelsea on Friday, is supposed to make us shiver in our booties, when the real evil is right under our noses: VICTOR. He needs to go away. There is nothing redemptive about him. Send him on a long journey somewhere …maybe Spain?

    kevin, mariah and technerd girl…. who cares?, and new billy #3….nothing sustaining my intrest, this shows so low now im actually looking forward to nick and sharon s baby switch #2 story…. ofcourse i ll watch any storyline that nick and sharon are in together!

      • Mary SF

        January 18, 2016 at 3:40 pm

        I wasn’t praising MAB– all I said was under her reign Adam was an evil son of bitch and at that time he would have kidnap himself— that is hardly an endorsement of the woman’s work. ITA some of her work was the lowest point for the show— sorry I brought up a bad memory for you, wasn’t my intent.

        That WAS disgusting, damien, definitely. But, not as disgusting as when Adam pretended to be gay and slept with Rafe; who happened to be the best character on Y&R. Such a genuinely nice guy. I loved him. I still remember how hurt he was. And, what does that say for the irreverence used on the gay community? Bah!!

      Well Mary I am not watching it enough these days to be on top of it but someone mentioned that whenever they constantly mention a past character they usually show up . Could it be Marco ? Lord knows Pratt seems to think we have to see EB PB and Steve Burton five days a week.

        I believe, as I already said, Marco’s hand is in the cookie jar…really deep, Kay. I agree with you.

      How RIDICULOUS were yesterday’s scenes when Dylan whipped out his badge? They could at least have had Dylan off screen for a week, saying he was in training/academy, etc., but to just give him a badge and let him go off on his own is so unreal. Of course, so is the police chief personally investigating every crime.

        I guess in soap terms it isn’t anymore ridiculous than Abby becoming COO of a major corporation with no training or background in business— at least Dylan can claim his military service was training– I guess we will just have to chalk this one up to another WTH moment on a soap. But if I was Paul I would watch my back because the way it is going Dylan will be the next chief of police in a month– LOL.

    It’s obvious that the head of the family will be revealed as Shelia Carter…..when Shelia “died”, she was actually comatosed and taken out the country to Spain where she was looked after by Niklaus Santori, who was an orphan that was raised with Victor in the School of Orphans, and was bullied by Victor/Christian at a young age, and vowed to one day bring down said VicChris…tech girl is Shelia’s daughter, who will later be revealed as Daisy, anywho, they will all converge at the Newman Towers where Lauren and Micheal will just happen to be having dinner and Shelia will be revealed as the mastermind behind everything that’s happened in the last year and will hold everyone in town hostage and at Midnight the Letter “N” from the Newman Tower sign will fall and kill everyone…fade to black screen….just kidding…i haven’t watched this show in over eight months and have no idea what’s going on……I do like Jason Thompson…..and I like the characters of Kevin and Mariah….

    Am lost as to what is happening. Opened my recording yesterday and saw Marisa tethered to the bed mirroring how Jack was held by Kelly months ago. For me that is “dark” writing. I saw a picture of Adam tied up. Just can’t watch this type of scene without it being properly developed and concluded.

    There are “dark” programs on television which have a central cast seeking justice. The central cast gives viewers comfort. Young and the Restless seems to have become poorly put together vignettes introducing new characters that, like a tossed balloon, are floating around looking for a spot to rest.

    I allow a lot of slack for this program because it has been appreciated for so long. I don’t want to be critical, but since the ratings appear to be world wide it almost makes irrelevant any consideration of comments suggesting the need to improve.

    Thanks to Michael Fairman’s group for their review.

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
