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… Read more »

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 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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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?

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!

CHELSEA THOUGHT SHE MIGHT BE A TABLOID REPORTER.

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.

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..

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 ..

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… Read more »

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.

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

Photo: ABC

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
