THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Adam Convinces Jack He Is The Real McCoy!

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

On yesterday’s episode of CBS number one daytime drama, The Young and the Restless, Adam (Justin Hartley) finally has come forward, to a key person from his past … Jack Abbott!  But would Jack believe this guy with a unrecognizable face?

Adam always thought of Jack as his “father” and not “the moustache” Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) as he explains during their encounter.  So, it seems if Adam was going to have some Genoa City ally this might be it, so it’s worth taking the chance to expose who he is to Jack.

In key scenes after showing up at Jack’s house, at first Jack doesn’t believe Adam and calls it a “sick joke” when he says he is Adam.  However, Adam insists he knows things that the two of them shared, and that no one else could possibly know, not even someone pretending to be Adam!  It culminates when Adam brings up what happened to the call girl’s body, and what they did with it! Adam tells Jack the last words he said to him about it, and it is then that Jack finally believes him and sucker punches Adam right in the kisser!

Finally, Adam recalls the events of how he survived being trapped in the car  after the accident with Billy (then Billy Miller, and now played by Burgess Jenkins), and the explosion that followed.  He notes he was pulled out of a river, and woke up in a strange house with his face bandaged.  We then see a flashback of Sage (Kelly Sullivan) calling him Gabriel.  Adam then reveals that the real Gabriel Bingham died saving him.  He got some much needed assistance in getting a new face from Sage, and her help in a cover-up including bribing the coroner in regards to dental records.

Jack is furious and thinks Adam was so desperate to get away with killing little Delia that he concocted this whole set-up to save his ass!  Adam swears it all by chance!  When Jack picks up the phone … to which it looks like he is calling the police, when Adam asks who he is dialing, Jack says he’s calling Billy!

So, what did you think of the scenes?  What did you think of the performances between Justin Hartley and Peter Bergman? Are you glad slowly, but surely Adam is being integrated back into the canvas, and the story is picking up a lot of steam? What do you think of the back-story on Adam/Gabriel and Sage’s part in all of this?  Do you think that Billy will have a showdown with Adam?  Or, is that much further down the line and yet to come in the story? Share your thoughts below!

Was happy to see Adam and Jack together,
with Adam becoming integrated with people he knows.
I had had about all I could take of Adam in that dreary room for so long.
Sage…hmm. I like the actress herself. but Sage’s bossiness and constant scolding is old.
I hope that her character is short-lived.

GREAT GREAT show again! Love YR with this new Adam. Justin H is awesome. I really want SHARON AND ADAM back together again like that deep passion love and friendship they had. Nick can’t be trusted! Team Shadam 🙂

I agree. Justin, like Gina as the new Phyllis, is hitting it out of the ball park. I really believe he IS Adam and this comes from a die hard Michael Muhney fan. I really didn’t think a recast was possible.
One thing, however, which is driving me even more nuts than I already am.
No one, not Adam, and not Chelsey, ever mention that Adam did not realize until days later that he hit Delia. It keeps being repeated that Adam just “left her there to die” and it’s said in such a way as to indicate that he knew he had hit her.
Moreover, it was Billy’s negligence which caused the tragedy to begin with. If it had not been Adam’s car which hit the little girl, it would have been someone else’s.

I love Shadam together. They could support each other but Adam is obsessed with Chelsea.

I thought I saw a glimmer of that in the restaurant scene. I want it too. He’s a great actor and really brought this role to life but Chelsea can’t act off him at all. All she does is grin.

i agree Adam in that dreary home was depressing I felt like I was watching “Misery” and ya Sage is annoying me she needs to back off of Adam or be written off the show

I believe everything was handled smoothly but there’s no need to rush into it. Take some time telling the story.

Yes, keep us guessing a little longer.

I think considering Justin doesn’t have a history of working with Peter he did a good job of conveying there is history with the characters they play. Part of me is still trying to imagine MM under JH’s face, but I think in time that will fade so I am cautiously optimistic that this recast will work long term as long as the writing doesn’t tank.

There was a teaser at the end of Friday’s show in Canada that adds another level to this story, but I won’t spoil it for America fans by saying what it was, but I am looking forward to seeing it played out.

Tell Us! Tell Us! We demand to know the teaser!…kidding…what if he really is Gabriel and not Adam…he could be programmed to think he is Adam…sorry, been watching too much GH…lol

Mary SF, I believe that the YR Brass was smart in taking their time in recasting Adam. I thoroughly enjoyed MM in the role but he’s happy now. Justin is not new to the soap scene and I think he could add some layers to Adam’s role. I can say that I look forward to what is ahead.

Mary, so true. Burgess and Peter didnt click right away as brothers but Justin and Peter together looked as if they had been working together for ten years!

After seeing Sage at Delia’s memorial site I just have a feeling that Ganriel and not Adam ran down Delia jmo

Good possibility…maybe Sage could also be a suspect too?

A long time ago I thought Mason did it. Mason??? Who is Mason??. Well for those who forgot Mason was Hilary’s boy toy helping her gaslight the Winters family. He was also caught stealing Devon’s identity — the reason I thought it was him was because one scene had him reading something on the computer about the accident and after he read it he got all nervous and ran out of the club. He looked like a man who was guilty of something. But then we never saw him again, so if he ever was a possibility with all the changes in writers it must of have put an end to it. So now anything is possible, but I do think eventually Adam will be cleared.

Timmm
Timmm

Yeah, was was she doing at Dee Dee’s memorial site? Did she run her over from the get go and been visiting the site out of guilt this past year even though we havent seen her there before?

SiteAdvocate61

I could invest in that theory because it could add new dimension to the story.

SAGE WAS JUST LOOKING FOR ADAM .IT WAS OF THE PLACES SHE THOUGHT HE MIGHT BE,SAGE THINKS ADAM DID IT .SO DOES CONSTANCE,THAT WHY CONSTANCE CALLED ADAM DESPICABLE.ONE OF THE REASON SAGE DOESN’T WANT ADAM TO BLOW IT ,BESIDES BEING AFRAID OF GOING TO JAIL ,FOR HELPING HIM ,IS SHES AFRAID FOR CONATANCE ,SHE DOESN’T WANT CONATANCE TO FIND OUT THAT GABRIEL DIED SAVING THE LIFE OF THE MAN THEY THINK KILLED A INNOCENT CHILD.

I think Justin did a great job as Adam but I think Chelsea is blowing it on him with her constant smiling at him. She sees Sage twice and asks “are you following me” but she’s met Adam/ Gabriel starring at her in a restaurant & smiling at him just walked by. Then sees him in the park starring at her & again smiling says “I know you “. She needs to act like he’s a stranger to her which at this point he is. Not well played Chelsea. Excellent job Justin!

Meg
Meg

CHELSEA THOUGHT SHE MIGHT BE A TABLOID REPORTER.

Nikki

I can understand that but what I don’t understand is how Chelsea (who is in love with Billy) keeps smiling every time she sees Adam. At this point he’s a stranger to her.

Not Melissa’s fault … bad writing/direction.

You could be right. I think he’s great with Sharon. I just don’t like him with Chelsea at all.

All I know is can’t wait to have plastic surgery and come back 3 inches taller buff and 10 years younger. Wake me when this nightmare is over MM fans you can catch him tonite on ION!!!!

We fans of MM all love him and miss him but he’s happier now and wants us to be nice not to mention Justin is doing a super job.

Justin is hitting it out of the park as Adam. Who would have thunk? One possibility and this is a big MAYBE is down the road IF they ever brought back Michael Muhney Justin’s Adam could turn out to be a sham and he could turn out to be Gabriel and not Adam. It would be a great story to write but who knows if Sony and or MM ever want to work together again?

I try to like the nuAdam..(1 he is way too tall ..
Justin is good, but he is not thee Michael Muhney Adam he is the one who stole my heart ..
what a mess with the 3 replacements, what a mess..
it just is not the Y&R I was once really liked to watch, no longer there..

Timmm
Timmm

I know su000 its tough without Michael but I doubt he will ever be on Y&R again so I watch Justin and he is pretty good. I look at it like this. You go to a fair and you cannot wait for one of their famous raspberry sno cones. You get them every year! You get to the far and their out of raspberry! Damn it! Well, they do have blueberry and its pretty good. Ok, I’d rather have A sno cone than NO sno cone!

Nikki

It wasn’t Sony’s problem H.H. started all the trouble and for the most part she’s not even a good actress. I can tell you where I live very few people like her. I know one person that won’t watch the show Monday & Tuesday because it’s usually all about Summer.

Timmm
Timmm

I know but thats who he worked for. I heard that Eric Braden didnt like him either. In any event, I agree with you and your friends, Hunter is a trouble maker and she is horrible on the show.

Nikki
Nikki

I agree with you Timmm, but Y & R will never get rid of her now. There to afraid she may stir the pot again about MM. I’m afraid she’s there for good so it gives my mute button some exercise. Now that they are bringing Jack’s son Kyle back we will have to go through her break-up,then Fenmore will be jealous, then she’ll be with Kyle. So as you see she’s there for good.

This guy just isn’t Adam to me. I want Michael Muhney back asap. That scene wasn’t half as good as it could have been if Michael was in it. Sorry if feelings get hurt, but I have to be honest.

I tried to accept nuAdamn, not working, yet..
MM was a very strong presence and he was Adam..
what made it worse..
Sat, I watched a Christmas movie that Michael Muhney starred in, and wow it was sooooo great to see and hear Michael again!!!
I silently was thinking ”now, that’s Adam.. 😉

Justin is handsome, a good actor, but not Adam ..

Mika

I really like Justin, but he doesn’t do it for me as Adam. I know change is hard and with time he will be Adam. Also, I find him easy on the eyes but not that great of an actor.

I really enjoyed the December 20th episode. I am really enjoying the new Adam as well as the new Phylis. I wishing and hoping that they would do something about Billy. I was always under the impression that Jill was much younger than a John Abbott, therefore Billy was much younger than his siblings. To me, this Billy looks like he could be younger than Traci. Even though I wasn’t thrilled with the departure of Billy Miller, David Tom was doing a good job considering the heavy roll and shoes he had to fill. I am glad I reacquainted myself with General Hospital 2 years ago. Now I can get my Billy Miller fix and my Michelle Stafford fix all at once. I am waiting for AdamandChelsea to start in. This way Billy will wind up back with Victoria after she finds out about the shower Ashley took with Ben so Abby and her mother can start fighting over Ben. It is starting to pick up again. I just wish they would give Jill and Gloria more air time. Maybe now with Michael’s cancer we will see more of Gloria. I just wish they didn’t have to kill off Michael to do it. As the saying goes….tune in tomorrow!!!

I love the new recast Adam, Justin Hartley, but it SUCKS that they always make Adam the black sheep. Today Victoria acted disgusted by him just because he said she had a cute baby. Come on!

I don’t want the character of Adam back if he is just going to be everyone’s punching bag. Please let’s see some character evolution here and cut the guy a break.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

Photo: HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

Popstar! TV Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Photo: ATI

 

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

Photo: ATI

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Photo: ATI

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
