Great post Chucky!! the only thing I would add is she did say if Adam found out about the baby he would come after her with a vengeance. I think she said it before the Victoria confrontation. Thats what I understood for her keeping up with lie. The only problem is the writing for Adam show that he wouldn't do that. I am not sure if that was the intent but thats whats playing out on screen. Also I found that she seem kind of sad when she went back to CL and was talking to Dylan.
It's a BIG problem! The audience is aware that Adam is spiraling downward. The viewers are aware that Adam is depressed and using alcohol and sex to mask depression. We know what's going on with Adam. He doesn't give a care about anyone or anything, just Chelsea and the baby. Otherwise, he looks like he's about to throw himself off a bridge at any given day.
We see that! He's thoughts and his actions are understandable because they are being played out on screen. I know what's going on with him. I know why he's doing what he's doing.
Chelsea comes out with "if Adam finds out, he'll come after the baby with a vengeance" yet, I don't know how she got to that conclusion. She went from point A to point Z with no explanation and I am not happy about that. What makes her think he'll go after the baby with a vengeance? Is it Adam that's causing her to react this way or is it something from her past that's causing her think irrationally? What's causing her anxiety? Is Chloe's warnings and advice affecting?
I'm just frustrated!
Why didn't Chelsea follow her heart and her instincts? Chloe doesn't really know Adam, Chelsea does. Why would she follow the advice of someone who doesn't know what the hell she's talking about half the time? She should've listened to her own heart, instincts and mind before setting out on this course of action. It's like she doesn't trust her own self. Alright, she fell in love with Adam and he broke her heart. It happens! I get that she gave away her first son and miscarried her second. Her anxiety is real, I feel for her on that score. But for her to say she's keeping the secret from Adam because he'll take the baby away from her or come after the baby with a vengeance...when we've seen her NOT tell him because of her confrontation with Sharon...just blows my mind.
It's like there's two competing reactions fighting with each other and neither makes sense.
You know what...just ignore me...PLEASE ignore this....because every time I come here, I'm going to end up asking the same questions with no end in sight...so please ignore this.
