Quote cdhg: After reading some information about Canadian episode in one of the threads, hopefully Adam doesn't get to the point where he trusts no one and either has not fight to win back Chelsea or would want to be back with her. It was encouraging that the fortune teller told Chelsea about Adam's feelings. I am not into fortune tellers, but maybe for the show Adam needs to visit and learn why Chelsea is afraid to tell him the truth.
I knew MM mentioned about Adam realizing the one constant in his life was himself and was going on a journey or self perahps being that "army of one" and putting up emotional walls. We have been seeing that in these episodes. His approach right now seems so focused on the truth about the baby first and then on Chelsea, that he is not taking the right approaches to get to the truth. Adam either needs to go hard after Chelsea with his more tender and loving side or just get his pride out of the way and start being more cordial with Chelsea. She has come closer to revealing the truth when he has shown himself more vulnerable or in the case of the coma, completely vulnerable. I thought there was a chance he might be pleased that she told him in the coma, providing he remembers the rest of the coma scene.
Hopefully, he and Chelsea can build back a relationship and some trust after this plays out. It may take her saving his life in some dramatic scene while revealing the truth to smooth things over. His life being on the line again, might be what it takes to convince her to tell him the truth, if he does not find out in another way first.
He may just give up. However, all along it's been about the baby and him trying to find out eventually, would the writers do a turnaround on this who story. Really does not make for good drama, IMO, they are always advertising the drama on Y&R. for him to forget Chelsea and the baby seems counter productive to the whole baby story.
I would not say giving up on the finding the truth, but perhaps utilizing better methods of getting to it and get his pride out of the way. It is interesting how he has owned up to his fault for the marriage falling apart, even most recently in an early May episode at OTB with Chelsea. He has done that previously with her too. It sounds like he may want her to take some responsibility too.
He definitely will not forget about Chelsea and the baby, although he may numb the pain with Scotch, work, and women.
This may be far fetched, but I wonder if part of his plan for getting Newman back private would be a way to truly show his love for Victor and then turn around and exit showing he love for Chelsea. I figure Adam wants both the cake and punch with Newman, his Queen Chelsea and his Prince or Princess child.
Still, if he can get NE back fully into the Newman family and then walk away, perhaps he could get Chelsea back if it not too late.
I hope Chelsea does not continue to go to far either. She just isn't thinking about how bad she is hurting Adam and she may have to truly come to grips with that and overcome her fears to help him when he needs it.
Part of me wonders if Chelsea is supposed to be nuNikki and Dylan the nuJack, then Chelsea might instinctively drop everything (including Dylan) to protect Adam (Victor 2.0) when he gets in over his head on this privatization of Newman. Something about that deal has disaster written all over it. Just a thought.
