Quote Ebybrowempoly: Well if he does leave i hope it isn't with chelsea. how can they keep her around without him. this is what i could see. someone from chelsea past comes to GC . she had pulled a con on someone and they lost it all. they vow to make her pay one day. well it has come. they come to town and they have lost everything because of her cons. she trys to say she has change and she is sorry . she offer to pay them the money she took. they say can't replace what they lost thier family . he or her pulls out a gun and shoots chelsea.she dies and adam is so upset . he blames himself for not being there and not leaving when she wanted.he was making sure that there was no way he was going to let victor get newman back . he was at the office and he feels if he was at home with her she might not be dead. he has to leave town . so he takes her body to paris . to be laid to rest where she wanted them to live.
this way if he wants to ever come back he can . cause he is so boring with chelsea. you only see fire in him when he is with sharon or trying to out do dear old dad.
In don't know but I suspect if MM left they would recast Adam. I don't for a moment believe he is going to jet off to Paris and not be seen in GC anymore. Either he will decide not to go, at the last minute, or he will go only to return a day or two later to see to some new urgent crisis. I just do not see the show doing without Adam for any extended period of time. (not right now at least, 5 or 6 years down the road if Y&R is still on, who knows who will be playing but right now, Adam is pretty central.)
