The Adam character was ruined long ago as a poster stated on this thread. The homosexual lie with Raffe, the purple dress, Patty Williams, buring the fetus, switching Faith
to Ashley, etc. He was one dimensional then and was fired but someone went to bat for him and gave him new life.
The con did not destroy this character. In fact it gave Adam another dimension and life that was badly needed. Ask yourself how long could he continue doing all these bad things (which he is still paying for today) before getting seriously axed. Thanks the con story he got to stay. A brilliant move in my opinion. I agree JFP has made him a dummy but she is the dummy pulling for her fav not for anyone else on this soap. He can still be a greatfather and husband and still have the character we all love. The narky remarks, the loner, the unacepted one. I believe he is finally accepting himself. The writers are to blame along with JFP. It occurred to me that the PTB stole Adams story or copied it to get Dylan in as the main man (talk about one dimensional and boring). Adam is the outcast Victor's son and Dylan will be the outcast Nikki's son. Somehow I doubt JFP will have Dylan as outcasAdam... At least Adam has come to terms about his father and what is and always has been important to him, love and acceptance
self respect and family. Adam will be the snarky Adam again
but for now he is truly becoming a stronger character and man, at least if the writers' write it well and stop with the moping. Adam has always done that from way back. He wants to be loved and accepted at least now he knows he has to love himself first. I hope this Delia story improves the character and gives it depth and substance. If you notice JFP is trying to do this will the the characters, same story but different players. JFP is boring and should be fired asap. Again, the beautiful burnett doe eyed con is not to blame for Adam's problems. she married the problems and had to deal with the devil.
