Quote cdhg: It is somewhat depressing going over to the TVSourceMagazine poll and reading positive comments about Chylan and seeing them number 1 in that poll the past week and doing well each week. I know we have discussed this, but still. It was great to see Chadam at number 3.
It seems there has to be a Shadam poster chime in when certain positive comments are made about Chadam. Sometimes I want to post some negative regarding one of the positive Chylan posts, but realize that it is just not respective in that context IMO. People have their reasons for support certain couples. I do not want to come across to as sour grapes like some Shadam posters do with Chadam.
I think I just detest Chylan. Both characters just do not look good with the storyline and relationship IMO, but a part of me is glad that it is be being written in such a way. I wonder if the writers intended for Chylan to be taken as seriously and be as popular as they are with some or are they surprised. Anyways, this couple is one of my most disliked couples of recent years on Y & R. I think they have some good scenes here and there, but some like when they were discussing names for Crimson Lights, or how they have Chelsea fawning over Dylan making her look weak and him look like a king, is hard too watch.
Well, I have to be perfectly honest and admit that if Chylan is the future of Y&R couples, than I'm going to take an extended hiatus.
It's funny but I always end up loosing interest when JFP takes over my soaps and I can't explain why. Oh well! Time will tell.
I will also stop watching Y&R if Chylan is the future too. I am just waiting until the end of August to see what happens with Chadam.
I'm 99% sure Chadam is the future. They are having a baby together and the lie will be revealed soon. All of the writing has been foreshadowing their reunite with Adam talking about needing a family. SB said Chylan wouldn't last once Dylan learned the truth. It gets depressing watching Chylan scenes bc they are so blah compared to Chadam. I feel confident they will find there way back, but it will probably be longer than we like. Adam dumping Mel bc she was a bad con makes me think Adam won't be mad that long at Chelsea. They are cut from the same cloth.
I want to go as high as you regarding Chadam and think that they are going to happen from the storyline or in the aftermath at some point. I am thinking September/October. I would be surprised if we get past the scheduled due date and/or the anniversary of the miscarriage without Chadam either reunited or started on that path.
My percentages on certain couples.
Chadam: 80%. I am hedging a little here, just not be too look too silly for being wrong, should I be wrong. The has foreshadowing, important dates regarding the baby and date parallels from 2012/2013 seem very much to be leading to Chadam. Any Shadam angst foreshadowing seems more false and phony IMO. I hedge a little too in case or writers rewriting or changing direction due to pressure or other things.
I put the three couples above at 50%, due to uncertainty here as far as how I am reading things. I think there has been Shick foreshadowing, but Sharon's actions regarding Summer's paternity will probably be a stumbling. I can see Shylan due to both characters having mental issues and understanding one another. Perhaps, Dylan would be the non-Newman that can be a positive for Sharon. I could see Nick being jealous here some and perhaps he and Sharon reconnect after how he sees the way Dylan is treating her. Adam did say that Nick was primal not wanting to share Sharon.
Navery would continue to happen just because the writers want to continue with them before putting Shick and Davery together.
I could see a paternity issue story involving Avery with Nick and Dylan with Dylan winning out. Based on a recent scene, I would not be surprised to see Dylan with Avery maybe even cheating with her when Chels goes into labor. Does anyone remember seeing Jessica Collins name on the post call times by the extra.
Now, Dylan going from Chels to Sharon seems odd in the sense that he would be bypassing Avery, unless she ties that knot with Nick. There seems to have been a little Davery build up of late.
I guess I am just split whether the writers are going more the epic love theme for this fall or if they are going to go some different directions first before possibly getting to that point.
With Chadam, Shylan, and Navery, if you put Shylan in the middle then you have each member of Shylan having a history with both members of Chadam and Navery. I just want that quad to be more Shylan/Navery instead of Chadam/Shylan. It will be interesting to see how characters react should this be the result of the storyline.
How did Chels take it when Dylan brought up Sharon's name? He mentioning of Sharon and Faith and a girl in Afghanistan perhaps are hints for Shylan, as has been mentioned.
For Shadam to happen at the end of this storyline would seem like a rewrite. It would not have made sense for the writers to have not already put Shadam together sooner, if that was the direction they were planning to go. The opportunity was there for that, and it would have made no sense misleading two fanbases, when in reality the foreshadowing seems Chadam. Twists and surprises are one thing, but for something to happen that would not make sense within the storyline would seen too far out there and like a con. Also, it would not make sense to have Adam save Sharon twice and for them to reunite after a second instead of first rescue, when she is blaming him, in part, for her problems.
My certainty of Chadam mostly comes from all of Adam's dialog and actions since the break up. He has been heartbroken since Chelsea left him. He has told Jack and Avery he still loves her. He has tried to move on, but can't. During his fling with Sharon he told her he was empty and had nothing to give her. He has not tried once to get back with Sharon. Just the opposite, in fact. He has been cruel and cold to her while to Chelsea he has been kind and concerned recently. When you truly love some one you want them to be happy no matter how bad it hurts. He has had numerous talks with Avery and his dad about how he screwed up picking work over love. Everyone in GC have told him how they chose family and how alone he is. He has had several flashbacks about Chelsea including her confession. Since Adam is a main character, and I think this is his story even though he has been absent recently. He is conning again and about to learn about how conditional daddy's love is. Chelsea is the wild card. But she had flashbacks recently about the good times with Adam. Their scenes together have been heart wrenching with neither one being able to take their eyes off each other. Her feeling for Dylan are problematic though I think she is conning herself about how happy she is. Adam is also conning himself by saying all he needs is work to be happy. With the connections between Summer's paternity story and Villy's addiction story, I think it's all going to be tied together leading to a Chadam reunion. Even Adam's fling with Mel had connections to Chelsea. It was mentioned that she was a Chelsea look alike and he dumped her bc she was "out classed" in the con. But hey, I could be wrong. JMO
