They let go of Mia to bring back Chelsea. At least Mia was something different. Now we have to go back to the Adam and Chelsea show. Not looking forward to it.

I 2nd that notion 100%!!
Mia was just starting to mix it up again with the other genoa residents!
..with sharon and rey the only intresting angle was the Mia threat.
The only intresting thing about Abby was Mia annoying her.
Dont understand why Tessa is still around

I guess she and Sharon can be mommies to baby Adam !!! The character should have stayed dead after Muhney left it ran out or what ever crap they are telling today ! I have no interest in this actress

I agree with you Kay. I don’t see where or how Adam and Chelsea will be fitting in now. I wonder now with Kevin coming back, are Chloe and baby not to far behind. At least that way Chelsea will have someone to hang with. On a side note, I always thought Chelsea wanted her happy ever after with Adam in Paris. I wonder if bringing Adam and Chelsea back is Victor’s big secret. Maybe now Christian will have a stable home life with them. Nick has been too busy lately playing “Mr. Stud” having one stands with whatever he… Read more »

soapqueenforever88 I agree with you. I am not a big fan of Chelsea, but I did like Melissa Claire Egan on AMC. There has only been one Adam for me, MM. The others are just new characters named Adam. He probably will seek custody of Christian, with Daddy’s help, and Nick better start acting like his old self, and not the middle aged skirt chasing jerk, he’s been lately. It’s very unbecoming. I also agree that Adam is in Las Vegas, hidden away by Victor, with the help of Dr.Lipschitz, Louis Litt’s shrink from SUITS. The actor appeared on this… Read more »

I wasn’t much of a Chelsea fan either. But I did love her with MM. My favorite Adam/Chelsea SL was when Adam was helping Chelsea get her high school GED. Here he was, a brainiac from Harvard, and he treated her with respect the whole time. And than he proposed to her in the rain. To me that was classic soap opera at its best. I hope this newcomer has better acting skills than Thomas on B&B. Although I must say say as far as recasts go Justin Jartley was excellent in following in MM’s footsteps. I also answered your… Read more »

No surprise. Y&R benefits from this opportunity to reboot by corralling characters moving on. I just had to believe Chelsea’s hurried exit 15 months ago was so she could be with Adam and one day they would be back. I do not care for resurrections but understand. And I am glad to have Miss Egan return. Will be interesting to see if Chloe follows Kevin now. She would be exonerated in any charge of killing Adam. I am not sure I want everything back to the way it was, but let’s see.

Yawn!
They cut the Rosales family down to a half to rehash Adam and Chelsea again for the 3rd time?!
Mia is so much fun amd Noemi has chemistry with anyone she shares scenes with! From Arturo and Rey obviously to Nikki, Phylis and just recently Jack! She had so much potential as a poor girl clawing her way up the social ladder!..instead we get a rapist conartist theif back and her twice back from the dead boyfriend ?
Boooooo

I disagree! I cannot wait for Mia to fly off to wherever and stay there. Adam and Chelsea? My Joy knows no bounds.

Hey Mary,
Looks like Mia will be flying off to jail on Monday. Adios to that troublemaker.

on the fence with this mal young had many flaws but i don’t know if josh griffith is doing it for me i feel he destroyed the outstanding kyle in 2 episodes and sorry i may be in the minority but i am not a lola fan don’t know if Chelsea is needed and don’t get me started about the new crowd with devon he can show everyone of them the door

I totally agree with you, I am not a Lola fan either. I do believe we are in the minority on that one.
Love Kyle, but I hate how he used Summer for Lola and Lola is not the goody girl she is supposed to be. She could go with Arturo and I wouldn’t miss her.

Lola is a breath of fresh air.

Sorry Mary, Lola, to me is only a breath of fresh air, if you use some air freshener too.
First of all, with all the hype of being a virgin, she kind of should act that way. Her kissing technique is overwhelming. Poor Kyle looks like he’s scared of being swallowed whole. Her sexual appetite is scary.

Chelsea has been soooo missed! Hoping for amazing chemistry with the New Adam (Missy was awesome with both Michael and Justin). Summertime should be fun!

Very pleased Melissa / Chelsea is returning to Y&R, Like her spunk & attitude. Hopefully Mark’s incarnation of Adam does his predecessors justice.

I wish that Michael Muhney was returning to the role Adam Newman. Did Y&R even ask him?

I wish that , too, Mary.

When Chelsea left, I said she was going straight to Adam. Is she returning with him? My outrage was over her leaving Johnny….yes, she did give him up, I know…..
However, she gave birth to him, and living in the same town is, at least, better than moving away. I am not a fan of Chelsea’s. Never was!! Social climber…..
Are they in Vegas? Is this what Victor’s subterfuge is all about?
