Brad's about to lose it big time - his world is about to come crashing down on him and the only thing he can remember how to do is be a controlling parent..
Brad is being consistent: he never approved of Colleen and Adrian's relationship then, and he doesn't now. Colleen shouldn't be surprised. Brad acted the same way with JT (for different reasons, but similar; he didn't think the relationship was good for Colleen. It it took a long time before Brad could accept JT because JT had to prove himself. No real surprises here, IMO.

there is such a world of difference between JT and Korbel...only Brad wouldnt see it even if it bite him...which I think Victor will take care of..
Any relationship started while one is already in a relationship would throw up a red flag to me as a parent. Also, a relationship that has to be seceretive, well to me thats almost like saying "I know it wrong, but Im going to do it anyway". I can understand Brad not wanting Colleen to get hurt, but I think he goes about things wrong demanding and trying to control Colleen. If it is meant to be then it will be, but they both went about it the wrong way. JMHO;)
Maybe they are setting up Brad to be the "new" Victor if and when Eric Braden ever decides to retire. Brad is acting in the same controlling manner as Victor does.
Brad is certainly "Ruthless".

Quote SouthernLady: why does brad feel so threatened by adrian??????
brad is a jerk..no two ways about it.................
Brad is worried that Colleen will be kicked out of college if the Dean finds out about this affair with her professor. Maybe Adrian will turn out to not even be a professor, and they can be together... but that is Brad's concern...
Quote suegerry: Brad is Colleen's father and a concern parent....let him get used to Adrian and then we'll see what happens....a parent has every right to object to what their child is doing.
Except this child is not a minor.Brad will never except Adrian simply because he went behind his back with Colleen.Being a concerned parent is one thing but to try and rule her life when she ia an adult by age anyway.Not going to happen.Brad needs to except them as a couple and then maybe Colleen will say well I can be with him and her change her mind and then not want to be with him now that the permission has been given to her.I think that she really loves JT and it was the thrill of the older man and being told no which gave him such an appeal to Colleen.YNK.I hope that it all works out for everyone involved.Or there are going to be some very yound and restless people.LOL.
Brad's job as a parent is done. Colleen is an adult. Colleen has the right to make decisions about her own life. Brad is just a hypocritical control freak.

ITA!! Brad is a jerk, across the board. Not only as a parent but in general. His daughter is an adult... back off! Nothing made me want to do something more than when my folks disapproved. I was just like Colleen at that age in college, only my "guy" was married! (but in the middle of a divorce). Guess what... after 2 years he never did divorce her (they're still married). Colleen will have to make her mistakes and learn on her own. Not that I think Adrian is a mistake! I love them together, but his job is in the way which makes it "secretive". That's the problem with the whole relationship. They need to be out in the open so they can relax. Brad needs to back off. There!
