Quote Gemini50: cdhg,I like reading your posts. Lots of info, very thought provoking, a lot of good insights, very well expressed.
Re your post recapping CHADAM story I loved it and made me cry for them. Here's hoping there a chance they will be together again, although, looks like the summer is full of Dylan/Chelsea relationship. Although I like SB I feel he is not right for Chelsea, not like Adam. I have been racking my brain looking for clues in the many CHADAM scenes of late for an opening, a hint of them reuniting and believe me it breaks my heart that I just don't see it yet.
If there is a reunite coming the writers are so trying to hide it. I hope Chelsea does not help Victoria blackmail Adam. He will never forgive or forget that. Remember when she went to Victor about Sharon burning down the ranch,he just did not get that and couldn't forgive her for a very long time. Trust is everything to the man that cannot be trusted. I'm trying to think of a favourite scene I would add to your list but you have definitely covered 6 of my favourites. I enjoy watching the Jan 3, Jan 9 and Jan 16 scenes, MCE made them really funny. I have a lot of favourites but I especially like when he rescued her from the pond, I think the date was April 5 or 6 of 2012, later durng one of their breakup scenes he told her that was his iconic moment, when he knew he could not live without her and realized that he was in love with her.
I liked because Chelsea had not yet fallen in love with him. I like knowing he fell in love with her first and pursued her from that moment on, like he said in another scene he had to trap her (not sure I;m using right words) before she ran away. I loved hearing that. Also I think it was the same scene, they were in bed after their engagement, she had doubts about getting married and suggested they continue as is because things were working. Once he told her he was in love with her and she said it back to him, she cried so beautifully. I miss this couple so much. I know they are different today but I feel that some of that tenderness and deep love and affection is still there. I'm not sure why Adam is so upset about her life now b/c up to know he didn't really give a crap. although I am enjoying see him suffer I'm angry at him too just like Chelsea is. I am not deluding myself I know it is being written like this for a reason. I hope that it all leads to a reunite. Right now all I want is for Adam to know for sure that the baby is his and I want to know the gender is it a boy for Adam or a girl for Chelsea. Once again though the way this story is being constantly twisted by the writers anything can happen. I am hoping that the pregnancy was meant to bring them together and not further destroy them or to further other s/l. Sorry for no paragraphs. I tend to just ramble. As I said I really look for to your posts they quite often challenge my mind and sometimes you write things I am actually thinking and seeing as well. Keep posting. CHADAM please reunite.
I feel their pain.
Chadam was definitely a highlight of MAB. So far, the new team hasn't given us much of anything for couples, but has worked destruction on some.
I am patient in believing it will take while for a reunite, but hope that it happens.
Like you, I try to look for some clues. Of course, the Christmas dream of Adam's but then that could be written off as a shattered dream due to lies and such. The speech that Adam gave to Chelsea in the hospital which made it sound like he was going to do things different, but shortly went back to old habits after the pregnancy reveal came out. Adam telling her that they could have had something amazing but that he blew it during the conversation at OTB. His telling Sharon that is she thought he could work things out with Chelsea seemed positive. I know MM mentioned that he likes to play ambiguity in scenes, so things leave you guessing if he is more about justing wanting a baby and heir or the whole family including love for Chelsea. Signs sometimes point both ways.
I think it galls Adam that she did not give in to his demands to stay in town and come back to him. He sees her as someone he helped make a better person who came from poverty, so he probably thinks it is beneath him to make too much effort. He put up some effort to try and get her to stay with him, but not an all out effort. It may have not made a difference since he lied about leaving Genoa City.
I did not like her demands at the time, but it was nothing more that what he told Sharon he would do for her during a December episode.
I guess if I have to hang my hat on something it is the Christmas dream and the hospital scene. Maybe Adam encouraging Avery in Dylan's path could be a sign or that he should be the one getting Chinese food for her.
