THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Adam Is Back As Mark Grossman Makes His Debut

Photo Credit: JPI

As Friday’s episode of Y&R ended, Sharon (Sharon Case) exclaimed, “Oh, my God! It is you!” But viewers did not see who walked in the door, but it obviously is going to be Adam Newman in the flesh.

Now on next week’s key episodes of The Young and the Restless, Sharon and Adam (Mark Grossman) are reunited, although he seems to have amnesia and cannot recall anything about his life before the explosion where he was presumed dead.

In story, Victor (Eric Braeden) has enlisted Sharon to try to get through to Adam and help him remember his life, but will it work? Is Adam up to his old tricks? Is he setting everyone up, because … Adam is coming home to Genoa City!

Nick (Joshua Morrow) will obviously not be too happy about his brother being back, especially since he has been raising Adam’s biological son, Christian, and as we saw on Friday’s episode, Adam kept a photo of Christian, but no one else in the family.

Enter Mark Grossman on Monday’s episode as he makes his first appearance as the recast Adam following in the footsteps of Justin Hartley, who is now on This Is Us.  Can Grossman make the role his own? Bets are, he will put his own footprint as all the Adams have done before him.

So, what do you think of how the writers are bringing Adam back to the canvas?  Does he really not remember anything? Excited to see Mark take over the role?  Is Shadam getting a second chance too? Share your thoughts via the comment section below, but first check out next week’s promo heralding Adam’s return.

All I can say is that it’s way beyond time they brought the character back.

I live in Canada so I got to see Monday’s episode already, and so far Mark fits the role perfectly. His scenes with Sharon show a genuine connection between the characters, and he seems to have the acting chops to follow the incredible work of Michael Muhney and Justin Hartley in the role. Josh Griffith clearly realizes the importance of having Adam around, and I’m looking forward to seeing him re-integrated with the rest of the characters.

Hope you are right.At only 32, he seems awfully young to be playing opposite Sharon, who is close to fifty I believe.

I agree no disrespect to the actor but the age is not appropriate for the character.

Sharon looks awesome though!

It is called acting.

Hi, Cassie,
This is exactly the age Adam should be. He is supposed to be much younger than both Victoria ( the eldest) and Nick.
The PTB messed up when they made Adam older and paired him with Sharon. Nonetheless, Sharon looks amazing!! I hope my body holds up as well as hers at that age!! She does not look much older than nuAdam to me. I am more nonplussed ( or bemused, actually) by how soap characters play musical beds —-Sharon has been with Nick, Adam, Dylan, and Victor. Have I forgotten anyone? LOL.
One of our fellow-posters stated that this Adam is an imposter. Hmmmm; good point. So far he seems genuine. He does have a secret, for sure. If he is the real Adam, could the text have been sent to Chelsea? I can’t remember exactly, but when she left, didn’t Chelsea have two-hundred and fifty thousand dollars with her? Is that the same money Adam hid in the sideboard?
I am not taken by the actor yet. He is not simpatico at this point. We shall see. As the story develops, I imagine, so will the character. There is a distinct dichotomy between this Adam and Muhney’s Adam….therefore, sooner or later, we need to see some of the good/bad Adam….the “provocateur” quality, that is soooo inherently Adam, kept the character interesting and elusive. Thus, I hope nuAdam’s persona will be able to convey that ( a little touch of villainy?).

I am also from Canada and I agree with Jim. Soaps ages are subjective at best. Gina Tognoni as Phyllis was nowhere near old enough to play mother to the Daniel character. If the writing and acting is on point, we just have to look past the actors’ and characters’ ages. As an unknown, this guy has some acting chops…witnessed on only his first day. I never liked Muhney…maybe because Adam was dark and so evil. I loved Justin Hartley in the role…he was softer, more human, playful and charismatic. I hope this Adam will be more like that!

Boop

I want this Adam to be more as Muhney since he’ll need it as he deals with Nick.

Why does Sharon’s age matter? I didn’t hear or read about anyone saying anything when Victor married younger women!

James

Perhaps in an ideal world, all these characters should have aged in real time, no SORAS whatsoever for the sake of pushing story when they’re not patient enough to do so.

Glad to hear that Jimmy. Mark has huge shoes to fill from the three previous actors that they left behind!

So far, I like!

He hasn’t said a word yet but I already don’t like him. No offense to the actor, I just want Michael Muhney! He will always be ADAM!

Jimmy

I felt the same way when Justin Hartley was cast in the role, and he did phenomenal work. And you will be surprised how well Mark embodies Michael Muhney’s mannerisms and facial expressions. Watching him brought back memories of Muhney’s Adam, so I’d say that he’s doing well in the role so far.

Timmm

I am a HUGE MM fan and only wanted him to reprise the role. BUT, CBS didnt want having nothing to do with him so we have to move on. The character is badly needed. Now we see if this dude can come through. Give him a chance Shari.

Hi Timmm and Jimmy–
)ooh mercy-
New Adam looks like the Pool Boy the Cougars ask in for a twirl.

He may be a good actor, not the problem, he just doesn’t fit in
He is age deprived .. !!

Violet Lemm

suOOO
My sentiments exactly, only you said it better! Also, I feel that he makes Sharon look older.

Just everybody back off of case she is doing her job and she looks Dam fine for 47 ! This is only temporary I think he and Chelsea are in cahoots so everybody can get off her back she is simply doing her job ! That actress has been run thru the mill since 2006 we finally get her back on track and here we go again let’s throw her under the bus she is one of the nicest people I know ! Steve Burton was not crap on that show until they hooked him up with Case she carry’s everybody and yet we trash her sick of it

Timmm

Kay, I couldnt have said it better!

They trashed his reputation and guess what the story boobgate was leaked by am husband who works for tmz you do the math been five years and he still can’t find work

They will never bring back Michael Muhney. Just as DOOL will never bring back Robert Kelker-Kelly.

Maggie

He reminds me of the new Thomas on b&b. Same type. No depth to make the character their own. Michael Muhney captured the essence of Adam.

Timmm

MM was THE best BUT lets give the new guy 6 months and see what he can do.

I am really looking forward to tomorrow’s episode of Y&R!

Wish him luck he deserves a chance he looks to me like he could have a dark edge to him and CE & MM brought that I always felt Pratt wrote JH version as more obsessed over Chelsea so I am hoping we get back to the scheming dark side of Adam . I personally think he is pulling a scam that he does not have amnesia. He tested with Case and obviously they felt he could pull it off.

Timmm
Timmm

Hartley was good on Y&R but would have been better as another character. Adam is dark. Justin was to soft. I could not stand his obsession over HELLsea! Justin has done amazing on “This is Us” and its not a surprise. Lets hope the new guy is back to swindling the Mustache! Go Adam!

Boop
Boop

I agree with what you said about Justin and Adam’s character.

Let’s put this character to rest short story Sharon has grown let her move on I like her with Rey

Timmm

I think Sharon has more chemistry with NUAdam than she does with Rey!

“Shadam” looks more May-December. And it makes no sense to go that way since Justin Hartley’s Adam had nothing to do with Sharon.

Chelsea is the love of his life. Sharon is history.

i must say while everyone screams about mal young at least he brought something different to the daytime genre while not everything was great i must say i have never been so bored since josh griffith took over. first off the crowd around devon must go every last one ana is a snore the uncle who is a montell jordan wannabe elena who everyone was so excited about go back to gh ! these bad generic songs stop singing love mariah but her girl needs to go too cannot stand the character of lola sorry i am rooting for summer one of mal youngs best jobs was michael mealor as kyle josh has all but ruined him with lola do not care about nu adam love sharon but why is she in his orbit and the writing he has no memory but he is a professional gambler going by the name spyder heaven help us this seems to be turning into a be careful what you wish for situation stay tuned

I think it is ridiculous. The U.S. soaps are the only shows who do this crap. Let the characters stay dead.

Well I saw two days of him he is scamming them I hate that Sharon will be hurt again but so it goes ! He is texting Chelsea now maybe this time rude off into the sunset ! Bye

Kay

You would not be discussing her age if she was a man . Case has carried every actor she is paired with sure he will write her nuts soon that’s his profile she wil do it that’s who she is at the end of today’s he texted somebody probably his fellow con artist Chelsea Lordy now all I will see is MCE in her underwear calling it acting and now Stafford coming back she calls that acting too so it goes back off the dvr

Just watched the new Adam. He has acting chops and seems to be off to a promising start. Definitely picture him as the Adam before he becomes the next Justin Hartley.

Violet Lemm

Uh,oh, just watched Fri. show. Me thinks maybe Chloe is back for another shot at Adam.

Tani Sterling

Just met new Adam; am behind in viewing. The age difference with Sharon stood out; particularly because of Jack and his latest attachment which seems to have thankfully faded. (She was a unique actor. It just was not the right role.) May\December romances need delicate touches.

I guess new Adam could follow the evil Victor side or the more softer side Justin portrayed which I appreciated. Victor had gotten so evil at one point in the writing that things were difficult to watch.

Sharon’s acting was superior. It seemed a one-sided shot. Adam didn’t shine yet.

As someone else said, who are these new Devon people; too many. I don’t like to say this, Mariah is one of my favorites, but much as I would like to appreciate her partner, I don’t think she fits.

Lastly, one day watching, perhaps years ago, it was announced by Victor that Christian was Adam’s child. That was the era of a mixed up guy in the genetics lab. I think Nick is the father.

How about guys! Respectfully submitted as always.

Join the discussion…Sorry, I meant “How about that! and not the rest of that sentence. Always mean respectfully.

Hi Tani
Yes there was a mix up in the lab by Adam and Victor, but during the custody fight last year for Christian, they did another DNA, proving that Adam was the baby’s bio dad. My heart broke for Nick.

Tani Sterling

Thank you Violet, I trust you more than my light viewing patterns, however, it is that last test that I feel Victor paid to have Adam be the father.

Remembering Neil Winters: This Week on The Young and the Restless

It’s time to say goodbye to one of the most enduring characters of The Young and the Restless when Genoa City mourns the death of Neil Winters in emotional episodes beginning tomorrow on the April 23rd episode of the top-rated CBS Daytime drama series.

Y&R taped this heartbreaking storyline several weeks back as a proper send-off to Kristoff St. John, who played Neil for over 28 years before he passed away this past February.

Neil’s death and its impact will be felt throughout Genoa City.  On Monday, in preparation for the upcoming 4 episodes, CBS Daytime released its “Remembering Neil Winters” promo.

In it, Lily (Christel Khalil), Victor (Eric Braeden), Devon (Bryton James), Ashley (Eileen Davidson), Nick (Joshua Morrow), Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and the returning Malcolm (guest star, Shemar Moore) later in the week, are overcome with sadness and emotion as they have to face life without Neil.

Watch the promo below, and let us know that you will be watching as we remember this special character and the man who portrayed  him via the comment section below.

B&B Preview – Week of March 25, 2019

This week on The Bold and the Beautiful, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Taylor’s (Hunter Tylo) long-running feud over Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) reignites after Brooke witnesses a kiss between her husband and his ex-wife.

Ridge understands why Brooke is upset, but the gloves come off when he sees the two women going at each other.  With their son, Thomas (Matt Atkinson) and their daughter Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) all back in Los Angeles, it clearly draws Ridge and Taylor together, but will Brooke’s love for Ridge win out?

Meanwhile, Quinn (Rena Sofer) is clearly Team Flo (Katrina Bowden) and wants her to get back together with her son, Wyatt (Darin Brooks), much to the chagrin of Sally (Courtney Hope).  In addition, Sally is made an offer to stay put at Forrester Creations and is finally getting her due as a designer.  But, will others once again try to bring her down?
