“Young and the Restless” spoilers are in; Ian Ward (Ray Wise) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) exposed Gabriel Bingham’s (Justin Hartley) true identity as being Adam Newman. The aftermath is monstrous, leading up to a showdown between father and son in an epic battle.
Adam Newman told Sage (Kelly Sullivan) that all he wanted was to fight his way back to Chelsea. He wasn’t being totally truthful, though. The real reason he fought so hard to come back was he had a settle to score with his old man, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). Growing up, he always felt like he never could measure up to his half-sister and brother, Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle). He always felt like whatever they did was praised, but he had to fight tooth and nail for everything he earned.
Adam’s story is still unraveling, and no one knows how it will unfold. There are so many layers with so many people affected by his actions. Justin Hartley explains that Victor and Adam’s story is not one of hate, it is a love story. Adam longs for his father to be proud of him. He longs to have his dad show any kind of affection for him. Victor also longs a loving relationship with Adam. He doesn’t understand why Adam does the things he does sometimes.
Adam slams his father of having the attitude that he will do anything to protect his family even if it results in breaking the law. Adam cannot see that he is exactly the same way; he broke the law by stealing someone’s identity in an attempt to resurrect and reunited with his family. He is too close to the situation and cannot see things objectively. He cannot see that he is exactly like his father, in fact, much more like him that his brother and sisters.
It will take a long time for Victor to forgive Adam for trying to sabotage his company and fooling him for over a year. Will Victor forgive Adam for trying for working with Ian Ward? Can Victor and Adam patch their strained relationship up and work together to battle Ian Ward?
