THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: Who Shot Adam?

Photo: JPI Studios

Things have gotten off to a rocky start for Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) upon his return to Genoa City! Within a week’s time he has been shot at point blank rage! But whodunit?

It all went down at the end of Friday’s episode of the The Young and the Restless, when after getting into an argument with Victor (Eric Braeden) and learning that Nick (Joshua Morrow) hates him and is raising his son, Christian, and that Billy (Jason Thompson) hates him because he ran down his daughter, Delia, it’s too much for this amnesiac version of Adam to take.

Victor even reveals he is trying to locate Chelsea for him. But ultimately, at the tackhouse Adam shows Victor to the front door and notifies him he is going back to Vegas.

Victor comments, “You’re going to regret this!” And outside the door, Victor is deep in thought.  Later, as Adam’s bags are packed for his departure from Genoa City, there is a knock at the door.  When he opens it, he is shot in the stomach.

Earlier in the episode, Nick has been contacted by Chelsea who has been trying to contact him via multiple text messages.  But is it her?

As previewed on the latest promo for Y&R and upcoming teasers from SOD, Adam is wheeled into surgery, his brother and sister, Sharon (Sharon Case), and Victor, all worry about what will be the outcome, and when Adam comes out of his operation, he remembers Victor! Looks like his memory has returned, or has it?

But the bigger question is:  Who do you think shot Adam?  Could it be Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan is returning to the show next month) ? Chloe? (There has been speculation that Elizabeth Hendrickson is returning to her role, especially from a recent photo she posted around Emmy time – see below -with her longtime Y&R co-star Greg Rikaart (Kevin), who is also back on the show) Or, could the shooter be shockingly Nick or Billy, or could it be just a gambler or a racketeer that Adam owes money to from his time in Vegas, and the gun shot was just to facilitate Adam regaining his memory, or could Adam have organized his own shooting?

Place your bets on who will be revealed to be Adam’s shooter by posting your theories via the comment section below.

My money is on Chloe. With Kevin coming back, Chloe doesn’t have much to lose (and we haven’t seen much of Elizabeth Hendrickson on GH lately). Kevin could end up raising Bella on his own. Billy would never shoot Adam knowing that he has a life with Victoria and his kids, Johnny and Katie. Nick has a lot to lose too, namely Christian and Faith along with his adult daughter, Summer. It’s too early for Chelsea to come back as MCE won’t be back on screen until late June. Victoria wouldn’t do it either. Yes, she and Adam have had… Read more »

Even though I am liking GH right now, Elizabeth Hendrickson is being wasted. I can see her coming back to Y&R. If so, my money is on her or Kevin.

I was thinking Chloe, as well, Michael……isn’t Kevin making an appearance? Perhaps, he knew what Chloe was up to and followed her?
Another possibility is the person who helped Adam escape the fire? He could not have managed to come out of that inferno unscathed/alive without help, I would think.
I don’t know if Nick has the heart to shoot in cold blood!! How about Tessa? Ian Ward? Zack is not really dead?

It’s probably that miniature maniac Chloe again……yawn and zzzzzzzz. I am bored with the story line–re living and replaying the Delia revenge story for the third time is boring to me.

Hi Harry ..
ahh ha! yes the Delia Revenge will only accomplish Nick being a pouty man child being done wrong..
Nick is such a sniveler haa what a weenie he is..

Hi Harry
I can’t stand that “mini maniac” either. She’s even worse on GH, with her dumb support of Shiloh.

If anything, I wish someone would shoot Cane and get him out of his misery!!

If Chloe it has been done- it would have been her third attempt. If Vegas people, who cares, never saw them on screen. It would never be Billy, Nick or Victor. If he is old style Adam and had himself shot that is possible. Other suspects not mentioned. The son of the terminal man Adam hired to be his body in the explosion at the GCAC or Patty Williams, who he duped into confessing murdering said same man. This shooting would revisited that part of Adam’s history to get newer viewers caught up Personally I am hoping this guy will… Read more »

Ok-
I’ve changed my thoughts about the new Adam/Mark Grossman.
The man is a talented actor and has made his presence known as Adam.
He is not MM, but then, no one is, but Mark is doing very well.

He still looks too young for Sharon but his demeanor is overplaying that fact.

So yah- I’m liking this guy 🙂

I’m looking forward to the mini-wars that are to come.
And I’m luvin’ that Victor is back in action !

I need more time, SusieQ…..Can’t put my finger on this thing that bugs me about nuAdam. He is not the truculent meanie I expected.
I guess he will grow into Adam’s pants. We shall see. He strikes me more as the recalcitrant Newman brat, than the methodical sycophant.

The killer will be connected to Vegas in the end but show will use the story to bring Chelsea back, Kevin and Chloe, etc.

Next to return is, I hope and pray, Gloria. Fresh off winning the lottery and millions of bucks. She will buy into Jabot and instead of getting she will be giving orders.

Richard I can’t tell you how sick I am of Victor fawning all over this son, who has been nothing but trouble for him and the whole family and so many others, from the minute he appeared in G.C all grown up. Sharon, blabbing on about what he had done for her, never mentioning what he’d done TO her, stealing her newborn baby and giving her to Ashley to make up for causing her to lose her own. I am not going to bore you or anyone else with the terrible things he’s done to so many people. The fans… Read more »

I could care less who shot Adam, actor is fine, but do not like the character, unless they change him completely, which I don’t see happening. What would be the point? So saying all that, my vote is that he had himself shot, because any one else mentioned, would have killed him, maybe aiming for his head or heart, not the gut. Also Vegas people would have looked for and taken the money sitting in plain sight. The shooter never entered the house.

What a little worm Adam is and always has been. He falsified DNA to give Christian to Nick, and now he wants him back. No surprise there. I hope everyone who wanted this jerk back is happy.

Hey, Miss Violet, I’ve always maintained that Christian is really Nick’s……after all the back and forth “switcheroos”, the “woe is me”-s; the less-than-honest actions by Victor ( whose nose and hand have to be in everyone’s life) and Adam’s ( like father–like son) vulpine personality, I have the temerity to say and believe something is afoot…..That is, Victor is at the bottom of it all and he will be found out. The problem is, Violet, the PTB steadfastly lead us in one direction, expecting them to make a right turn; then do a number on us, and make a left… Read more »

Hey Celia, If this were real life and not reel, I would just say, from your mouth to God’s ear, but I sure hope you are right. On a couple of other previous comments made by you, Harry and myself about Eliz.Hendrickson. I have been wondering about all the pledges Shiloh has been collecting on GH, including Margaux’s. My big question is, isn’t having sex with his victim one of his requirements? Have we ever seen a tattoo on her? He would probably need bricks to hold her down.Yuk! Sorry, just being silly. What about the men? I wonder if… Read more »

Uuuuuu!! Love the play-on-words, Miss Vi—real, reel. Nice!! You know, I love ‘silly’…..I love the ‘ridiculous….I see “funny” in anything, if the mood strikes me. However, while I do enjoy quirky personalities, weird thinking, and belly laughs; I am not entertained by less than interesting writing. This is forced. These victims’ intelligence is above the norm—-their experiences in life, as mature adults, are vast; thus, it’s baffling for them to fall prey to such manipulation. Kristina is exempt—she’s young, I guess, and gullible. Considering her disillusionment in love, lack of closeness to her mother, a criminal for a father, a… Read more »

Perhaps she was named as an homage to that hot mess of a ‘70’s supermodel for a moment, Margaux Hemingway? Just a thought, CeeCeeGirl! Anyway, it’s been quite awhile…wanted to take the opportunity to say hello and wish you a “Happy Vineyard Summer”…It is that time again, isn’t it, mia amica?

Well, hiyah, Shaybelle!!!!!! Long time—-yeah…Hemingway and his two granddaughters! I heard of both, but did not know Margaux was a model—could not have been well-known as Tiegs, Jerry Hall, Beverly Johnson etc.
We are having a family reunion this summer on MV in August—very exciting—-family coming from Holland, Scotland, Australia, Canada, S. Africa, Norway and Lord knows where else!!
Can’t wait to meet all the new “additions”—
So happy to hear from you, cara.❤️

Au contraire, CeeCeeGirl! Margaux was an uber-famous femme of the ‘70’s, and not just because of her last name and legendary grandfather…she was the first model to land a million-dollar contract when she was signed as the face of Faberge’s “Babe” fragrance and later, cosmetics line! It was omnipresent in the mid-to-late part of the decade and even though I was too young to be a prospective consumer, I remember all the splashy magazine ads promoting the products! Hemingway had that very “glamazon” look…bold beauty and statuesque, athletic build….she really did photograph amazingly with her unique features. She was on… Read more »

Yes, ma belle, my family and then some, has been having these reunions for decades—every five years.

I guess I missed your last sentence of comment, but I would like to think that Sage had more class than to sleep with the likes of Victor.That brings up another question. I do not remember if he had his vasectomy reversed that Diane got him to get, years ago. I remember how angry Nicki was when she found out.

LOL, my love….I was being facetious. Sage did not sleep with Victor–surprising, since, since I doubt, there’s a woman left in GC with whom he hasn’t “messed”–yuck!!

Celia, So enjoyed your last two comments. They are always so enlightening and interesting. I took French for only one semester, so what I know is next to nothing. I think I can count to twenty, say the months and days of the week and a few phrases.I guess we share the same sense of humour, in that I also find so many things funny. My daughter shared this craziness with me, but skipped the rest of the family, and I feel it’s their loss. Iam also a big fan of the double entendre, which I have to contain, as… Read more »

Hey, Miss Violet, It’s encouraging knowing someone else with an “off” sense of humor. LOL. Where is it written that there’s an age limit to a fantastic sense of humor? Warped or otherwise? No way, my friend. You are as physically and mentally young as you feel. I would have never guessed. You are ageless to me. Does not matter–we communicate well!! No, it’s not a typo……I meant “messed”, in quotes. Victor has messed with 99% of GC’s female population….even the prison medic. HaHa. I try to keep up with good grammar…..my austere English teacher’s admonition still deafen me—I can… Read more »

You are such a bright, articulate, educated, funny woman. wife and mother too, I’m sure. Who says you can’t have it all, huh?

As far as finding the time to watch my three soaps—rarely do I watch when they are broadcast. I indulge at night—-

@CeeCee….Reading Violet’s and your vivid descriptions of Victor Newman’s propensity for collecting female conquests strikes me as being very similar to Port Charles’ own resident “Don Juan,” Sonny Corinthos! Guess all soaps have to have one, eh? Hah!

GENERAL HOSPITAL 15000th Episode: Laura Faces Being Ousted as Mayor as Port Charles Bands Together in Support of Her

Finally, after many preemptions, General Hospital’s 15,000the episode aired on Wednesday. In it and front and center in the standalone episode was GH icon, Genie Francis (Laura).

In story, after a scathing op-ed is run in The Invader from a group of citizens called “The Friend of Port Charles”, they take aim at Mayor Laura Collins and want a recall to replace her. When trying to figure out who was behind the story, Laura’s friends and the citizens of the town, band together to keep her from being ousted and to figure out who would attack her in the press like this.

That sets up a few sentimental flashback clips featuring the three current longest-running members of the cast, Genie, Kin Shriner (Scott) and Jackie Zeman (Bobbie).  Viewers get a glimpse of Scotty and Laura’s wedding, and then Bobbie’s contentious and duplicitous side when she fought for the love of Scotty against a teenaged Laura.

As Laura tries to determine who is behind the op-ed, Curtis (Donnell Turner) gets a lead from Ms. Wu (Lydia Look) that Laura’s half-brother, Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) is behind it.  Laura then heads to Pentonville to confront Cyrus.  She asks if he’s the brains behind “The Friends of Port Charles”.

Cyrus insists he is only an advisor. He goes on to say that this is a group of people who are disillusioned by the way she is running the town.  Cyrus gets angry and vengeful, and emotional, when saying the police department is corrupt and how ELQ and Cassadine Industries gets tax breaks at the expense of less fortunate people, etc.  Laura can’t figure out if these people in the ‘friends’ group have such high moral value why would they hire a criminal, like him, as an advisor?

Renault goes on to say that it’s up to God and preaches she needs to be less self-righteous.  Laura throws back to Cyrus that where was God in that scathing op-ed, that he did filled with such hate?  Laura then forgives him and walks out, which stuns Cyrus.

Later, Scotty in front of Laura, Bobbie, Anna (Finola Hughes), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Lucy (Lynn Herring), proposes to Liesl (Kathleen Gati), but she turns down his marriage proposal.  Liesl feels they have a good thing going , so why mess it up with a marriage at this point. The two kiss.

In addition, Laura meets up with Maxie (Kirsten Storms), who are visiting an institutionalized Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst).  Maxie brings her some cosmetics from Deception because of the bad lighting in the facility.

The softball game was the throughline of the episode, and at the end, we saw the payoff, when all the characters converged on Charlie’s giving their support to Laura, who says she is ready to write her rebuttal.

Then in a voice-over from Laura, she speaks to the essence of Port Charles and its residents which included: that they have a strong community that she is proud to be a part of it and she speaks to her legacy over generations.  Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) proposes a toast to Laura, as she notes that if she loses the recall then so be it, adding that if the person who replaces her is a Port Charles lifer, like she is, then the town will continue to prosper.

So, what did you think of the 15,000 episode milestone episode? Did you enjoy the performance of Genie Francis? Did you like the way much of the cast was utilized, or did you feel otherwise? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Two Moms Unite To Keep Finn Alive … Or Will One Throw the Other Under the Bus?

Gotta love two creepy mothers toiling over their near-dead son as they try to bring him back to life! That’s the scenario on The Bold and the Beautiful and the words, “Oh, mother!” were taken to a new heights on Friday’s cliffhanger of the CBS daytime drama series.

In story, now that Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) has stumbled upon the truth at Li’s (Naomi Matsuda) place – that Li has been keeping a very much alive Finn (Tanner Novlan) all to herself and caring for his health – bio-mom, nasty nurse Sheila, is not too happy about Li’s secret, although overjoyed that her son is alive and that she did not actually kill him after she fired a bullet meant for Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

Photo: JPI

Now, with Sheila escaped from prison, and Finn starting to regain consciousness, in Sheila’s mind there should only be one mother tending to him, and she wants to be the first person he sees when he wakes up and that’s her.   So, as only Sheila does, she knocks Li out and unconscious on the floor.  Sheila then tells Finn, “Mama’s right here, baby.”

Suddenly, Finn seems to slip back into a coma and is no longer able to open his eyes.  A panicked Sheila shouts to Li, “Get up. He needs your help.” After waking up from the hit to the hit, Li seems to find common ground with Sheila.  She goes so far as to say to Sheila, “If not for you. I never would have had him, and for that, I have to be grateful.”

Sheila apologizes for having hitting her (Is she really sorry? Please!) and admits she thought Li would turn her back into the police. Li says, “We’re both Finn’s mothers!”  Next, the two hug it out, of sorts, although Li looks petrified.

Li tells Sheila that since Sheila is a nurse, she needs supplies and needs her help to keep Finn alive.  Li promises Sheila that she won’t call the police, admitting that she also has so much to lose including: her medical career, her son, etc, because she faked Finn’s death certificate, smuggled him out of the hospital, and more!

Now, Finn starts to move.  Li says to her son, “Both of your mothers are here!”  Then, Finn starts to open his eyes.  We fade to black.

With all the bashing (literally), contentiousness, and high stakes; that both mothers would have to go to the slammer for a longtime, will they reunite and work together to keep the secret that Finn is alive and get him back to a full recovery … or will they turn on each other?  Will Sheila knock out Li again and have her locked up, so she can be Finn’s only mom in her twisted mind? Share your theories via the comment section, but first, check out two clips from Friday’s B&B featuring the on-going great work of Kimberlin Brown and Naomi Matsuda in this storyline.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Who Killed Abigail?

It’s the end of Chabby! Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it the beginning of a murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera.

In story, with several people wanting Abigail Deveraux DiMera dead, it looks like someone stabbed her from the final moments of the episode, when Chad (Billy Flynn) comes upon his wife, when he returns home from a movie with their kids.  Chad finds Abby in their bed, bleeding and non-responsive. DAYS has teased the death of character for a few months now, and everyone learned it is Abigail, played by Lead Actress Daytime Emmy-nominee, Marci Miller, who has exited the series.

Now, the mystery begins … whodunit? Is it a vengefulLeo (Greg Rikaart), who was brandishing a knife after his call with Gwen (Emily O’Brien)? Could it be Gwen herself who called “someone” while the prison guard nodded off for a nap?  Somehow, made it out of prison and back in time and covered her tracks.  Could it be a drunken Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), who ruined his sobriety overcome with the knowledge that Chad told Abby, that he was the one who kidnapped Sami – a secret he doesn’t want to come out. Could it possibly be Kate (Lauren Koslow), who wanted to protect her son, Lucas’ secret, and went to shut Abby up … or could it be someone else?

DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati spoke to Soap Opera Digest on their latest issue on newsstands now, about the decision to kill-off the character of Abigail, expressing: “It was mostly for a practical reason because Marci was not going to be available to us full-time on contract and it made it challenging to tell story for Chad and Abigail.  So we didn’t really have the option to have Abigail around, and then that always becomes a problem when one-half of a couple is not going to be available to you. What’s the solution at that point?”

In addition, it appears that bringing back Kate Mansi to the role, was not going to solve the issue the show was faced with.  Carlivati explained: “Kate has been willing to come back, but may not necessarily want to come back on contract, so you risk being in the exact same position that then Kate leaves and what do we do? Then the option would be to recast yet again with someone who maybe is willing to be here on a more permanent basis, but then you’re dealing with a new face. We’ve been very lucky in recasting Abigail, but you don’t always know if that’s going to work. So ultimately, we decided to kill the character.”

But as Days of our Lives fans know, does anyone really stay “dead” dead in Salem?  The head scribe shared on that point: “We decided to do it (kill Abigail) knowing that we’re not saying it’s not a permanent death, but there is always that possibility that death is not permanent, especially on a soap opera and especially in Salem, so you feel that maybe you’re not closing off the future of that character forever. That said, this is not going to be an instance of the car going off the cliff and you don’t see the person again. This is going to feel permanent and we wrote it as permanent.”

So, who do you think will wind up being the culprit who murdered Abigail? What do you think about the decision to take the character off the canvas, with what looks like for good? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below. But first, check out the promo for next week’s episodes of DAYS and the returns of Cady McClain and Matthew Ashford as Jennifer and Jack who will grieve the loss of their daughter.
