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..

So, not looking forward to watching that but looking forward to Adam taking someone down because I need some action !!

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

Yeah, Harry….right? Let the girl “rest” in peace.
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?

Celia
Guest
Celia

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 »

In this case, you said there wasn’t a woman in GC he hadn’t messed, so I was trying to be funny saying, did you mean a woman he hadn’t missed? I would also like to meet you Celia. 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—-
Believe it or not, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t watch —-my grandmother had me hooked since forever. Hard to let go, right?
Speak soon, my friend.❤️

@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!

DANCING WITH THE STARS: Jesse Metcalfe Eliminated, Chrishell Stause Gets A Surprise From NKOTB

Last night on  ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, another soap opera alumni’s journey on the ballroom dance floor came to an end, when Jesse Metcalfe’s (Passions, Desperate Houswives and Dallas) ) and his pro partner, Sharna Burgess, were sent home by the judges after landing in the bottom two.

After combining the judges scores and fan voting at home, the other couple joining Jesse and Sharna in the bottom two were  Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd.  This season it is up to the judges to choose who stays and who goes when forced with picking between the two lowest scoring couples of the night.. Bruno chose Vernon, Carrie Ann followed and Derek also revealed he would have saved Davis or Metcalfe as well.

With Metcalfe eliminated following last’s week’s departure of Ex-Another World’s Anne Heche, that leaves only Chrishell Stause still in the running vying for the Mirror Ball Trophy from the world of daytime drama.

 

Here’s a recap of what went down on the dance floor for Metcalfe, Stause and Davis last night.

Jesse Metcalfe and Sharna Burgess – (Tango) – “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”

Dancing to the classic by Tears for Fears, Metcalfe promised in the pre-package to loosen up and show a more human and vulnerable side to his dancing.  However, although there was a bit more coming from Jesse this outing, the judges criticized him for needing more technique than just performance. SCORE 19 out of 30

Photo: ABC

Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko (Cha-Cha)  – “The Right Stuff”

Revealing to all on the pre-package, Chrishell is a huge New Kids on the Block fan from back in her teens, and was stoked to dance to their song during the night’s 80’s competition,   However, during the performance, while Stause has shown improvement, this time the judges noted she seemed to slow down to much during the dance and also she needs to watch her footwork.  After Gleb and Chrishell danced, Tyra Banks had a surprise for Chrishell when the NKOTB sent in a viral video message to their biggest fan!  Stause was overjoyed.  SCORE 19 out of 30

Vernon Davis and Peta Murgatroyd –  (Tango) – “Living’ on a Prayer”

Performing to Bon Jovi’s classic “Living on a Prayer”, Davis donned some rocker dude long locks and hit the floor with Murgatroyd, but the former pro football star looked stiff moving around the ballroom.  Judge Bruno noted that his footwork was a bit flat.  However, Carrie Ann shared she liked the quality of movement he was showing them.  SCORE 21 out of 30

So after looking at the clips of their performances below, did the right person get sent home in Metcalfe vs. Davis?  Do you think Chrishell can hold out longer on the series through the next rounds of competition?  Let us know in the comments section. (Also check out the moment when NKOTB message to Stause is played during the broadcast.)

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

Courtesy/ABC

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Courtesy/ABC

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

Courtesy/ABC

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Delaney Makes Her Debut as Jackie Templeton Returns to Port Charles

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the arrival of Kim Delaney back to the soap opera scene.  The fan favorite primetime, film, and daytime star has returned to the network (ABC) that made her soap-famous when she played a young Jenny Gardner on All My Children back in the early 80’s.

Fast-forward to 2020, and Delaney is actually a recast in the marquee role that kicked off Demi Moore’s career, that of ace investigative journalist and reporter, Jackie Templeton.  Moore played the role of Luke’s (Tony Geary) new love interest (following the disappearance of Laura into the fog) back in 1982.

Now Jackie is brought into the present day story by snooping reporter, Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan).  She wants Jackie’s help in bringing down Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) who is creating havoc in Port Charles at the hospital.   After their brief meeting, who should Jackie run into?  None other than her ex, Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers).

 

As longtime GH fans remember, after her involvement with Luke, Jackie became romantically involved with Robert.  But that went bust when Robert married a pregnant Holly (Emma Samms) to keep her from being deported out of the country.   All of that begs the question, is Jackie the one holding Holly hostage in some twisted vendetta from years gone by?

It was great to see Kim Delaney back on daytime, and now GH fans will wait to see what the writers have planned for her.

Do you think Jackie is good, evil, somewhere in between?   And according to reports, look for Jackie to have a profound effect on the lives of Chase (Josh Swickard) and Finn (Michael Easton).

So, what did you think of Kim’s first episode back to daytime and as Jackie Templeton? Comment below.
