Y&R's Justin Hartley and Melissa Claire Egan Preview How Chelsea Learns Gabe is Adam Newman!

Next Monday on the July 13th episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) will finally learn that the guy she has the ‘hots’ for (Gabe) is actually her believed-to-be-dead husband, Adam Newman (Justin Hartley)!

Just how does it all come about and what are the turn of events?  Two of daytime’s best and hottest performers: Justin Hartley and Melissa Claire Egan previewed the big reveal on the CBS Sudser with Michael Logan at TV Insider. 

Apparently, the moment occurs after a gloating Adam, when standing before the portrait of his father Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), kind of blurts out that he is indeed Victor’s son, Adam … and Chelsea overhears him!

Hartley weighed in on the reveal saying:  “After Adam gets caught, there’s a choice he can make. He can try to get out of it by saying, ‘Hey, Chelsea, I was just making a joke!’ And he sort of starts to go down that road but then he doesn’t. He chooses in that moment to not give Chelsea an excuse, and I think it’s because of his love for her. Enough is enough. He realizes that as good as everything seems to be with their relationship, it is still broken at its core.”   The actor went on to say, “We’ve all been in that position where we’ve lied and then the truth comes out and at first you’re, like, ‘S–t! That sucks. I am such an idiot!’ But then you’re going, ‘Whew! It actually feels good to get that off my chest.’ But Adam also thinks he can fix this. He thinks he can fix anything.”

Egan related: “In those first moments, she’s all about trying to embrace the fact that Adam is alive. But then all the questions start coming, like, ‘How could you lie to me about Delia?’ In the episode after the big reveal, a lot of her questions get answered.”

So looking forward to the big moment when Chelsea learns Adam is alive?  How long do you think it will be before the rest of Genoa City and the Newman and Abbott clan’s catch-on?  Share your thoughts and theories below!

I think it has to happen as just about the same time of the Marco/Jack reveal to further throw the town into chaos.

I also hope that for once, Victor pays BIG for the disgusting actions he has taken. If they try to make him sympathetic in any way they have truly missed the mark.

YUCK Im so sorry NOT SORRY he belongs with Sharon . Those were my favorite times on YR Shadam . WHY ISNT THE WRITERS giving us Shadam. Adam acts like he never met Sharon who he if you go back and look at all the tapes see Sharon and Adam wow woza they were smoking HOTTTTTTTTT

Why? Why ? Why? Should Chelsea and Adam be a couple? She never understood or really loved him like Sharon did. I wish someone would post they remember Sharon and Adam and the lengths they went thru to be Romeo and Juliet lovers. I NEED MY SHADAM FIX sorry everyone Dylan is nice but he was supposed to be Sharons brother Not Nicks and Dylan is sleepy and not what Sharon needs

NOOOOOOOOOO I dont like Chelsea with Adam at all one bit! NOOOOO . I thought Adam forever loved Sharon. I hate when a new writer comes in and does not do his homework , Sharon and Adam are amazing and I want to see them again together. Why is Dylan with Sharon and Sage with Nick? Let this baby be Adams Sage has and Sharon is back with Adam or Nick

Danielle

If Chelsea forgives him she is dumber then I think she sounds all the time with that baby voice. Adam clearly does not respect or trust or love Chelsea enough to be honest with her but he can be with Sage and Jack?

Adam’s huge love for Chelsea is exactly why he hasn’t been able
to tell her yet. Would be too terrifying to think she may not understand,
(even though he knows deep down he can trust her.) and then lose her
and Connor completely. But Monday will be great I hope!

I think Melissa Claire Egan has a perfectly nice voice.

well I’m surprise they are doing this in the summertime but it sounds like it really happens and it isn’t just a dream or in someone’s head, so I’m looking forward to it. No that he is with Chelsea it makes sense she will find out and be force to decide does she keep his secret or does she rat him out to the police

I don’t think she’ll tell. If she loves him, she will protect him, Mary.

I agree CeeCee, she will be pissed of his betrayal BUT will realize that one, she loves him and two, if his identity is revealed he is still the number one suspect of dear old Delia’s death.

@ Timmm.
Exactly, Timmm. As you say, she will be pissed off….but, never will she betray him.

Danielle

I think she will tell because he never loved her he loved Sharon from what I remember all those years. Chelsea was forced to live with Adam because of her lying pregnancy once again. WHY DOES CHELSEA ALWAYS GET A PASS FOR WHAT SHE DID TO BILLY AND VICTORIA? She raped and drugged him and gave away Johnny like trash! NOT HAPPY FOR CHADAM! Period

I love the new Adam, he has great chemistry with Chelsea. I do not like the new Billy, nor do a lot of the people on the forums. An easy out would be that Billy was behind the wheel of the car that killed Delia, he shot Adam because he was going to reveal that he was using again or cheating on Victoria, which caused the car to swerve, kill Delia and the real Gabe Bingham. Then we get rid of this Billy. He doesn’t have chemistry with anyone. Then Adam is cleared, and he has Newman away from Victor.… Read more »

When Delia was hit, Billy was in that little convenience store, wasn’t he? I clearly remember that. Billy came out, and both the dog and Delia were gone. Then, he found Delia in the bushes. But it’s a soap. The writers can spin it anyway they want. I think the best candidates are a drunken Nikki, and/or crazy Maureen. Just a thought! If I remember correctly, when we heard tires screeching, all we saw was the dog. But, I think, Adam assumed he killed Delia….I believe Adam drove through after the accident had already happened. Dash, the dog, took off.… Read more »

Cee Cee, you’re right with your deconstruction. I just want to underscore the fact that Adam did not assume he had hit little Delia until the next day. I know YOU know that but it bothers me that it is not mentioned on the show. He left the scene of the accident not knowing that he had hit the girl. On another note, I knew something tragic was going to happen to poor Delia when they decided to name her Cordelia. Delia is short for Cordelia–this is the name of King Lear’s youngest, and sweetest daughter. When Cordelia is killed… Read more »

WOW, Harry. You never stop impressing me. To be honest with you, I did not make the connection with Shakespeare’s Cordelia. I should have, I know.

Okay, we must remember there has been two changes in head writers since the story of Dee’s death. We have no idea how Mr. Griffith would have penned that story since he quit and JFP and her minions used that story to get rid of MM. So any clues we saw when it first aired are moot because Mr. Pratt can rewrite history any way he sees fit. As many pointed out there was a name Kelly on that list that owned a black SUV, so perhaps the original plan was Billy falling in love with Kelly and then she… Read more »

Lucia

Remember when Victor had that list of names of people who had black SUVs like Adam’s and he was crossing names off the list to see if any of those SUVs had been in an accident? Since I record the show, I remember pausing on the list and the name Kelly Wilson was on the list. This was around the time that Kelly and Billy slept together and she had a prominent presence in the main storyline but no real backstory. Anyway, at the time I thought for sure they were going to spin it and make Kelly the driver… Read more »

How could billy be the one that hit Dee. That does not seem to be an easy out imo. He was with Dee that night not out cheating.

Thanks for brining up LEAR (my favorite to teach!) Cordelia was killed defending her father’s kingdom, even after he banished her. When Lear arrives on stage with her dead body, he repeats, “Howl, howl, howl, howl, howl, howl”– no words in the English language to describe the pain a parent feels with a child’s death. ONCE AGAIN, had the writers any true foresight (instead of their continual cheap gimmicks) they’d put the UMPPHH back in the show.

Nancy
Guest

If we had Michael M we would have our Sharon and Adam back for sure. Like why did they not have Adam tell Sharon who he told everything to. Why bring Sage into this show when Sharon and Adam would do everything possible to save the other . I love Shadam no Chadam for me. Plus he can’t tell Chelsea the truth for a year so um what does that say Hmmmmm

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

I agree they missed an opportunity when “Gabe” first came to town and he tested out his new face first with Sharon. If I had been writing it I would of had Sharon recognize him as Adam right off– that would have fitted with the history of those two characters and still left some hope that they might find their way back to each other. But the direction they took Adam after MM left and the way they are writing Sharon, I seriously doubt they will ever be a couple again until there is a change in writer or producers.

Delia- I don’t think they know who to blame for that, it will be good if it ever is solved.
hey! they can blame Avery she is leaving anyways..

Summer already made Chelsea & Adam lose a baby so let it be her that killed Dee Dee and she can go to jail for a lifetime or at least as long as the show last.

Summer should be the one who killed Delia so she can be sent to prison for life! (well, I prefer the electric chair)

Actually, Melissa, that makes so much sense. The real Gabe and Sage! Perfect. Kill two birds with one stone. If this is, indeed, how the accident went down, do you think Adam knows? Did he and Sage strike a deal, each keeping his/her silence? Very interesting.

I am thinking it was Sage who hit Delia. Somehow I feel she is hiding something and knows more than we think. I do not care for Sage either.

Mary SF
Guest

Personally I would love to ask Josh Griffith who he had planned to be the real hit and run driver. The character Sage didn’t even exist when he penned this story. The only one who really knows how that story should have turned out is him. Of course Pratt can rewrite history any way he might like, but in my opinion, since Sage wasn’t even a character at the time, it would be silly to make her the driver now.

Lucia
Guest
Lucia

I completely agree, Mary!!! It was so clear in how Griffiths left details ambiguous that Adam could not have done it. He didn’t even know he had hit anyone until the next day. Plus, the fact that he stopped the car when he saw the dog indicates that even though he was speeding, he wasn’t driving recklessly enough to not notice a figure in the road. It also seemed that the writers didn’t know what to do with the character of poor Kelly. She came to town with a flimsy storyline of having lost a child in the same way… Read more »

Lucia
Guest

My last paragraph may not make sense but what I was getting at was that often the writers expect us to forget or kindly “forget” the details so they can expand a storyline as they see fit. Sharon’s marriage to Victor is rarely brought up because it is so gross to think about …yet we all know it happened.

Here I am with foot in mouth!!! When Y&R decided to replace the last Adam Newman I laughed and thought “well that will never go over with the fan’s”. Day one Justin covered head to toe like a mummy in bed just didn’t work for me at all. I actually skipped a few episode’s. Then one day tuned in as Justin (still covered head to toe) waved Sage over to the bed. He kept saying (in a whisper) closer. She kept talking and got her ear down as close to his mouth as she could as he said “Shut Up”.… Read more »

Justin is good!
I remember they waited over a year to replace Michael/Adam..
they gave the Michael/Adan fans over a year to calm down and waiting over a year to bring in a New Adam worked out well..
If they would have recast Adam within a couple of months I think it would have been a different outcome..

Mary SF

Justin is okay, but as slimy as Adam could be, MM had a way to make me see the wounded boy inside of him that didn’t always condone his actions, but at least had me believing Adam never did anything from an evil intent. I don’t find Justin’s take on Adam has the same vulnerability–I am getting used to him, but he hasn’t wow me yet.

madluv4u
Guest
madluv4u

I agree. I think Justin is doing a really good job, but he lacks vulnerability. I would sympathize with MM, but not with Justin’s take on the character, but he’s still quite good.
Also as a side note, i think that Justin’s Adam is kinda too too young for Sharon, although she looks great for her age, but then pairing would be off, imo.

Don’t care, don’t care! I just want it explained, once and for all, that ADAM was NOT responsible for killing Delia! I would think someone would know if they ran over an elementary school child. This bologna has gone on too long. Why didn’t they use the time Adam pretended to be Gabe to investigate Delia’s death instead of all the corporate machinations? I never believed Adam would run over Delia. Adam may be many things, but not that. It was someone else. Now that Nikki has fallen down the rabbit hole even further, why don’t they just come out… Read more »

I agree to an extent– I am certain (if the writers had some smarts) that Sage and the real Gabe are behind Delia’s death, if not Constance herself.

To those of you who don’t like Adam with Chelsea all I have to say is that the two have a child together. That changes everything. All the stuff with Sharon in the past might have been fun to watch. But for the show to be real, Adam needs to come back and reclaim his FAMILY..you know the one Billy stole from him..Adam has a boy and for this story to feel real he should want to be in his son’s life and not Sharon’s.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Right, Joe. I loved Sharon with Michael Muhney….but, I have reservations having Justin and Sharon as a couple.
Nonetheless, I don’t think Chelsea and Gabe/Adam mesh….perhaps, the very person who knows his secret? Marissa? This girl garners/reaps mystery and sensuality….but, more importantly, I sense loyalty in her. I saw something between her and Noah, but, for some inexplicable reason, I see Noah as a boy. Marissa is too much woman for Noah. We shall see what TPTB have in store for us. At this point, the storyline, as fresh as it is, can go in any direction.

Y & R has a great story line! Jack has shown fabulous acting talent. Still I miss the days when Victor adored Sharon and Adam was her great love! there doesn’t seem to be much chemistry though between Sharon and Justin not the same as with Michael Muhney. Hopefully there’s a Sage and Marco connection to the real killing of Billy’s daughter Delia. To free Adam from the crime!

All three actors who have portrayed Adam have been good but Michael Muhney is one of the best actors in the history of daytime.The current writing and production regime has destroyed this once great show which has,with a succession of bad writers and worse management,been in decline for years.It’s truly a shame.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
