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

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!

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Photo: JPi

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

Photo: JPI

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.

Broom

During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!

General Hospital

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Courtesy/ABC

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Photo:ABC

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

These scenes for anyone who has endured or lived through losing a loved one battling through Alzheimer’s and having to make a life and death decision, and the emotional turmoil and sadness it causes a family, could feel the pain and heartbreak played  by Burton and Benard. That is why Michael Fairman TV gives Steve and Maurice the honors of The Power Performance of the Week.

Watch a few scenes from part of Steve and Maurice’s ‘Power Performance’ below
