The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Adam Newman’s (Mark Grossman) desperation could get him in trouble. Adam might be poised to carry out a cruel plot that’ll come with some pros and cons. Let’s look at Adam’s current situation and how this schemer might go about improving it.
First, we should acknowledge that Adam’s no stranger to carrying out twisted plans. It wasn’t that long ago that Adam was plotting to blow up Newman Tower, which could’ve killed his family in the process.
Adam had Chelsea kidnapped to prevent her from blowing up that scheme, which says a lot about what Adam’s capable of.
However, Y&R fans know there’s something else driving Adam right now. Adam is understandably fixated on Chelsea’s recovery.
It breaks Adam’s heart to see Chelsea struggling like this, but he’s starting to make the dangerous correlation of Sharon Rosales (Sharon Case) equals progress for Chelsea.
In the January 22 episode of The Young and the Restless, Adam mentions to Dr. Lena Cavett (Dana Sparks) that a friend dropped books by. He seems to realize Chelsea made a sound because of Sharon’s presence, so that could be important here.
There’s another telling hint in that same episode when Sharon mentions how agitated Chelsea seemed by her recent visit. Adam shrugs it off and suggests that agitation is better than seeing the hopeless look in Chelsea’s eyes.
It’s clear that Adam would rather see Chelsea upset and making progress than calm and stuck at a standstill.
As time goes on, Adam may understand that Chelsea’s furious because she thinks Sharon and Adam might be going behind her back. He could become convinced that jealousy and rage are the key to sparking Chelsea’s full recovery.
Will Adam fake an affair with Sharon to give Chelsea the push she needs to get better? We have to remember how desperate Adam is. Adam has assured Chelsea that there’s nothing he won’t try to make sure she recovers.
Adam might think it’s best to dupe Chelsea now and explain after she’s made great improvements.
Of course, it’s hard to imagine Sharon agreeing to a plot like this, but Adam may not tell her exactly what he’s up to. He might create clues for Chelsea to pick up on like having fake phone conversations with professions of love for Sharon – ones where he suggests he’s “stuck” with Chelsea until she recovers.
Adam could leave texts nearby for Chelsea to read and even plant clues for Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) to pick up on – knowing full well that Chloe would tattle to Chelsea about her “Shadam” affair suspicions.
Adam gets that Chelsea’s a firecracker who won’t rest until she gives him a piece of her mind, so he might hope she’ll recover so she can rip into him.
Naturally, this would all be one big “Shadam” sham. Adam would be taking a huge gamble since there’s no guarantee Chelsea would forgive him or even believe him once the truth was revealed. Even so, that’s a chance Adam would probably be willing to take.
Adam would sacrifice his own happiness if it meant getting Chelsea back to her old self, especially for Connor Newman’s (Judah Mackey) sake.
Do you think Adam will pretend to cheat with Chelsea? Will Adam fake a full-blown affair and hope it lights the fire in Chelsea to get better? We’ll offer updates as other Y&R news becomes available.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say Adam will have to make some tough choices as this hot plot gets even hotter. CDL will have lots of other thrilling Young and the Restless spoilers, news and updates to read up on, so pop back in soon.
