The Young and the Restless fans are still talking about the shocking twist last week on the CBS soap opera. After being presumed dead in a car accident, it turns out Adam Newman is very much alive, but he has gone to great lengths to make sure the residents of Genoa City think he is dead, including his own family. There still is no news yet on who will be replacing previously fired actor Michael Muhney and playing the role of Adam Newman, as of right now Adam’s face still hasn’t been revealed in the brief scenes that he has appeared in since Muhney was let go.
According to The Young and the Restless spoilers, this week April 7th-11th may be the week that Victoria and Billy finally decide whether or not they will officially end their marriage. Billy is less than thrilled with the news that Victoria slept with Stitch, but he slept with Kelly, so whether they choose to reconcile or finally call it quits is anyone’s guess. My own feeling is that divorce is a likely option for the following reason: poor David Tom continues to get slammed by fan who preferred Billy Miller in the role of Billy Abbott. So it makes sense for Jill Farren Phelps, the ultimate soap storyline manipulator, to ease David out of the picture by having Billy and Victoria split, right?
Billy and Victoria’s relationship may be at the end of its rope, but Nick and Sharon fans will be happy to hear that this week they share some tender moments and become closer than they were. With Sharon still suffering from memory loss after her electroshock treatment, it is only a matter of time before she slips up and reveals some of the secrets she has been keeping from Nick, and their newly reconciled relationship could take a turn for the worse.
Next week on The Young and the Restless the residents of Genoa City will spend the majority of the week planning for Chelsea’s big fashion show. Chloe will (again), and lash out and attack her former partner Chelsea for moving forward with her designs without including her. The highly anticipated fashion show will draw several attendees, including a crossover of some cast members from CBS’s other daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful.
Let us know what you think of next week’s episodes of The Young and the Restless in the comment section below. Are you secretly hoping that Victoria and Billy will move on from each other so that we can all move on from this storyline? And which actor do you think Jill Farren Phelps has cast as Adam Newman? Facts are that anyone other than Michael Muhney or maybe Brad Pitt (joking!) is likely to be greeted with scorn and even hate. This comment below from Soap Opera Spy expresses a common point of view on Adam being alive and MM being replaced:
May stop watching, not interested in a replacement for Adam. Too bad for the actors on this soap. They should have just left Adam dead. Instead the whole show is in at risk.
And more comments follow:
It’s truly unbelievable what has become of this iconic show. TPTB and a group of actors currently employed by this show, have egos bigger than the universe. It’s really a shame but they have nobody to blame but themselves for long time viewers being so upset.
Thats okay MM is going to move on to bigger and better things and ALL of his TRUE fans are going with him!! Y&R sucks anyways and has for a long time!!
I want Adam back in the mix and I hope they take their time to get a really great recast, but I really miss seeing MM on screen and I think it is going to be almost impossible for to replace him. He brought so much to the screen. Since he and BM left there is there is just this gaping hole. At least for me. I am not whining, I know they are gone and life goes on..blah..blah..blah. I really do wish the new actor who takes over the role well. Because it is going to be tough stepping into those shoes. Just look at all the flack poor DT is getting.
Is it feasible to replace a fan favorite fired under ugly and suspicious circumstances? Would it have been better to leave Adam dead? Well it’s too late now – Adam is alive! The burning question for me is WHO will replace Michael Muhney. We are doing our best to learn the answer to that question and will let you know within minutes when we find out.
