Tuesday was a big day for The Young and the Restless and it’s long time fans, as this was the day that Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) would finally learn that the man she is currently in love with, Gabriel Bingham, is actually her dead husband Adam Newman (Justin Hartley), not only alive … but kicking!

The reveal began on Monday after Adam gets cocky sitting front of Victor’s (Eric Braeden) portrait in his office celebrating his victory and takeover of Newman-Abbott from under his old man.  Adam utters that he is Adam Newman which Chelsea overhears.   The pick-up of the scenes on Tuesday had all the complex emotions, the back-story, and the question of where do these two soulmates go from here now that the truth is out?

Balancing just the right amount of tension, hurt, anguish, sincerity, revenge, and love in his heart for the woman he loves no matter how he goes about it, Justin Hartley delivered some powerful, yet understated moments that showcased his acting talents, as well it gave the always formidable Melissa Claire Egan some raw emotional material to play.  For it was Egan who had to react and comprehend the news that the man she has been sleeping with is actually Adam – a man wanted for the hit and run accident that killed little Delia.

Adam tells Chelsea that he can’t go to prison and have their son Connor grow up without a father for a second time.   He even shares the truth about the bullet wound in his lower abdomen thanks to Billy Abbott (Burgess Jenkins), and the events surrounding how he came to know Sage Warner (Kelly Sullivan) and Constance Bingham (Sally Kellerman), and how through taking on Gabriel’s identify he received a second chance at life and to be together with Chelsea.   The only thing is – Chelsea isn’t seeing it that way, quite yet.  Will Chelsea keep mum and build a life with Adam AKA Gabriel?

Earlier in the day, Hartley and Egan appeared together on a very special CBS Connect Chat answering questions from fans as this major storyline took a massive turn.

After the jump, watch Hartley and Egan in one of the key scenes from today’s big reveal where Chelsea learns how Adam became Gabriel, the CBS Connect Chat, and the latest Y&R promo released on Tuesday from CBS Daytime now that Chelsea knows the truth.  Then let us know … what did you think of the performances of Justin and Melissa on today’s episode?  What do you think should happen next, and will happen next?

(I still miss the real deal Michael M/Adam 🙁 ..

I thought they gave a great performance!

Stunning is the correct word for the acting and the balance of each reacting so well emotionally to the other’s raw emotions with this unfolding of Adam being revealed.

Don’t usually have shivers with the scenes on YR, but with these recent two acting with such gut emotionality definitely had shivers.

Must have been very exhausting to shoot these scenes day after day but they certainly met the script’s challenges.

Bravo to both! Would hope they will submit some of these scenes for a DayTime Emmy nomination.

I do not want to run the risk of repeating myself, I have said it all on the previous thread of the ratings. Melissa did something I had never seen her do before. She acted ….she finally reached the stars for me, giving the stellar performance of a lifetime.

CeeCee,,
My neighbor the lifer soap addict, told me..
Melissa while on AMC was a very strong actress, much better than with Y&R..
Anyways she was not surprised after seeing her giving great performances before..
Me? I’m with you.. 1st time on Y&R that I seen her give a great performance, too ..

(Pratt gave her better material)

CeeCee

I remember Melissa on AMC. She was ok, I guess, but nothing to rave about. She played Crazy Richie’s sister (Billy Miller). That’s why I had found it so ironic when Chelsea was impregnated by him on Y&R.
I hope Melissa continues to outdo herself. Kudos.

Why did she walk into Victor’s office in her bare feet?

She and Gabe/Adam were doing it on Victor’s couch. Happens all the time in business.

Very excellent episode and YES, JH and MCE have knocked it out of the park with their acting………….

Yeah, they both did great. What I hate about these soaps and I’ll pick on CBS this time. They advertise that July 13th Chelsea finds out Gabe is Adam. YEAH at 57 minutes into the show and CUT! It was a ruse to get us to tune in Monday only to beg for more on Tuesday! I got news for CBS, were fans, we will tune in tomorrow! We waited how long for this to flesh out onto the screen and they ask us to watch on Monday and tease us! BULLSHIT!

Timmm

But anyway, I agree with CeeCee, this is the first time I’ve really seen Melissa shine and she picked the right time! Justin was amazing. It is a little awkward that he is so much taller than her and at one point he had to kneel down to her to express his heart felt emotions but he did great! The bigger reveal will be when he says F.U. to Victor! THAT, will be monumental. Plus, I think Adam will not be the one to hit Dee Dee. We’ve said this all along but now with Charley Pratt in the house, if he cannot find a way to have someone else be responsible, he will re-write history!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hey, watch it, Timmm!!….LOL. my husband is more than a foot taller than I. Trust me, it works for us!!!!…LOL.
Yes, Timmm. I hope that, if history is to be re-written, Adam will finally be cleared. Hey, the best thing would be to bring DeeDee back. Why not? The writers are magicians. They can make anything happen. I have faith in them. LOL.

Could not agree more. Justin and Melissa were outstanding. This was also on a day when Jessica Collins again was a marvel as Avery Clark, and Steve Burton was incredible too. The scenes with Dylan and Avery were beautiful and heartbreaking, knowing Jessica is finishing up her stay in Genoa City. Tuesday’s episode was an epic, 4 Star wonder. There are days when the show is as good as Daytime gets, yesterday was one of those days. I hope it continues.

I loved it. They are the best part of Y&R right now and I can’t wait to see this story continue to unfold!

If these two don’t get an award for their performance then these awards are a joke. M.C.E. and J.H. should be on night time T.V. man can these two act. I could barely see the T.V. Damn I cried like a baby. Her (Chelsea) acting is over the moon, and (Adam) to hell with the last guy.THIS IS ADAM and man he could do cycles around the last one. Each scene had their fans hearts right there with them. I usually take a coffee break,pee brake let me tell you ..No break yesterday for this lady. Congratulations to both M.C.E.& J.H. love Adam & Chelsea. CHADAM is reborn.

Nikki, hi
Jonathan Jackson and Tony Geary were far above ME and JH ..
GH had a powerhouse of actors/acting the past 2 weeks..
Y&R paled in comparison to GH in the acting department..

but! I though ME and JH were awesome.. they were giving their best..
(but didn’t make me cry/emotional, Jonathan Jackson and Tony Geary made me cry..
As did Liz ..
The tear jerking award goes to;
Jonathan Jackson and Tony Geary !!!!

Hi suoooo Guess we have to agree to disagree Tomato/tomauto.

Suooo-why are you comparing JJ and TG with these two Y&R actors at all?
Geez.

Darlene

Don’t agree. There were nothing more raw, emotiomal and heart breaking final scenes in January. Actually Michael was over the top through the stop through the Delia Dies story line starting when Adam and Chelsea found that Connor needed corneal surgery. Adam wanted to be the father to Connor that he never had with Victor and it was ripped awau from h

Hi, Darlene.
Justin Hartley is one perfect actor, from A to Z. I am not disputing his skill.
However, Melissa Egan, at the risk of sounding repetitious, has never shown so much emotion…EVER….even when her son needed a new cornea. To each his/her own, I suppose. It’s great to have a different point of view, isn’t it? We had a different impression and take of/on this character. I truly had never seen her fall so-heart-and-soul into character before.

Harry
Harry

I agree with Cee Cee. I always thought she was a strong actress even back in the days when she had to play Ryan’s chopped liver on AMC.
And Justin Hartley really does feel like Adam.
I never thought a recast was possible but Justin has proven me wrong.

chris

I loved the original Adam,did not think anyone could replace him. Now I cant even remember him. He is perfect for the part and I am a Mellisa fan. Great together.

I did not think the scenes were well done. I felt nothing, Adam is still a lying piece of crap and Chelsea just became his co conspirator.

Georgia Anne

I think these two are so full of themselves it’s hard to watch them. I think the writing is full of plot holes and insulting to long time viewers. The Adam character has been dumbed down and is no longer compelling. He’s a surfer dude. Chelsea is a screaming shrew. Huge fail.

Nanci
Nanci

I must be watching a different Chelsea and Adam than you are.

Harry

and I must be watching from another universe than Georgia Anne.

Franco

No! Adam can’t reveal himself. Not yet! Could he at least wait until the November sweep to do this? However, on the bright side, new face Adam’s story is finally coming to a close, unlike the Jake/Jason story on General Hospital. No wonder they’re losing viewers.
P.S.
Don’t be surprise if Billy Miller decides to leave GH, and they fired Jenkins for Miller. I personally don’t like the Billy Character in general, especially when miller played the role, but at least Miller is better than Jenkins.

Mo
Mo

I would be surprised if Billy left GH, especially since he’s dating his co-star.

Would love to see Jenkins go. He’s been bad since day 1.

Harry

Mo, Billy Miller and Kelly Monaco are not dating.
Those pictures were staged and all part of an ABC publicity stunt.
I think they’re just really good buddies.

Hartley’s first appeared on November 5, 2014.
Miller’s first appeared on October 1 2014

Jason’s revele was put on hold because of Tony’s exit story..
You wouldn’t want his Jason revele the same about time as Laura or JJ’s return, nope
Jason was/will be revealed before week’s end.
hmmm gotta be Friday’s cliffhanger..

I don’t think that they compared to R.H. and J.J. on GH this week. Nobody could top the GH’ers performances.

Justin and Melissa were at their best but not good enough for an emmy.
Actors are expected to give good/great performances and that does not automatically say Emmy because they did what actors are supposed to do, deliver good performances..

And- I agree!
GH actors were putting out much better performances, for sure..

ehh all were great ,, 🙂 well done Y&R and GH ..

Harry

I am not sure why some folks insist on comparing GH actors with Y&R actors.
This article is about two Y&R actors who did a damned fine job in conveying emotional intensity and complexity. No easy feat.
Their accomplishments do not take away from JJ and TG’s performance.

PS Carol, I certainly hope your RH is a typo and you meant to write TG (Tony Geary). Roger Howarth has just been having a swell ole time playing a goofy, lazy, one dimensional nerd. He has been HORRIBLE!
I cannot bear to watch this once great actor act like Carrot Top so I fast forward through Roger’s scenes.
What GH’s writing has reduced RH to is new lows. I have no idea why they fought so hard to get this actor is all they were going to do was have him act like a goof ball devoid of complexity.

Nanci
Nanci

Totally agree, Harry!
TG and JJ, as well as JH and MCE, were great in their recent scenes.
It isn’t a competition.

Just for your info, Harry, I was referring to Rebecca Herbst not Roger Howarth.

Both Justin and Melissa should submit these scenes for the next Daytime Emmy’s.

Melissa Claire Egan is an excellent actor. If they give her something to do, she will always deliver. Congratulations Melissa on another super performance. Justin Hartley was also great in this reveal.

Remember in 2003 when Trevor St John took over the role of Todd Manning then it was reveal that he wasn’t Todd? Well I think Adam has a twin, but Hope didn’t tell him or Victor about him. Adam probably got saved by a agency run by Sage and Constance and they wanted him to pretend he was her lead grandson Gabriel. Adam refuged and was prepared to expose them. So they decided to hired Adam’s twin, brainwashed him, and now a man who thinks he’s Adam Newman is taking over his life without even knowing it, considering he thinks he was saved from the car crash and got surgery to look like Gabriel.

Dude, Adam and Chelsea are back together. Sort of, but still, you have to accept that Muhney isn’t coming back. Unlike Roger Howarth where he left in his own, Muhney was FIRED! And anyway, Justin seems to be doing a great job as Adam. Even better than Muhney or Engan!

CHELSEAS COMMENT SHOULD HAVE BEEN….OMG…ADAM WHEN DID YOU GROW SOOO TALL?

Suzanne Short

I think the scene between Adam and Chelsea was acted out very well. However, I do think that This knowledge should have been revealed sooner. Also, Chelsea should find out that Adam has not changed for he did not tell her about Marco or the police, so he has not changed. Chelsea, for once should indeed have one or two up on Adam. All should be informed of Gabe’s real identity. If Chelsea is sincere regarding his actions to be quite horrible from the past, she would not care if others knew his identity.

Egan and Hartley are amazing together !!! They have off the charts chemistry !!! Hopefully, he will pair with Jack to give Victor his due !!! Bored with Kyle and what’s her name. It’s time for Billy to take responsibility in Delia’s death. Any responsible parent would NOT leave their child alone in a car — ever !!! Love Marissa and Noah .
