Neil and Leslie's romantic evening takes a surprising turn
The truth about the hit and run takes its toll on Adam
Hmm This could be lots of things. MM's interview reveals that Adam concludes that he probably was the driver.
Maybe we see him wrestling with the guilt and deciding not to tell, or maybe he's arrested.
If soap fans didn't demand that stories be tied up in neat little bows, MM's interview would make me wonder if we never find out for sure what happened that night. Where it looks more likely than not that Adam was the driver, but the police don't have enough to convict and the audience can't be sure either.
Really? Because I came to the opposite conclusion from that interview: (emphasis mine)
Soaps.com: Adam burning the scarf seemed like a definitive decision. Is there any going back from that?
Muhney: Adam realizes that although he felt nothing, heard nothing, and saw nothing while he was driving, this scarf must be incriminating. But could it have just been caught up in his wheel because it was lying in the street? Did Adam do this? How could it be? Because as far as Adam experienced, there was no "hit" and obviously there was no "run."
And once he starts to put the pieces together later, his amazing capacity for guilt starts to take over
, and at some point, he emotionally accepts
the idea that he was possibly, and probably, the one to hit Delia.
Now we all know Adam is incredibly intelligent, and he's definitely smart enough to know that things aren't always as they seem
, and there could certainly be another driver
out there who hit this little girl, but his guilt and his conscience are eating him up alive
, and then reason sets in: If he turns himself in, will that bring her back? How can he be certain that it was him? What if he turns himself in and was wrong?
Now yes, he did say that "at some point, he emotionally accepts
the idea that he was possibly, and probably, the one to hit Delia," but to me the key part of that sentence is "emotionally accepts" not "probably" because right now, he's running on pure emotion and adrenaline, not intellect or reason. Without giving the story away and getting in trouble with the writers/head honchos, I think MM did a great job of planting the seed in viewers' minds that there's more to come to the story, and like we've said before on this MB, the real story here is him struggling with taking a chance coming forward when he's not sure if he did it, but he knows that he'll be treated like he's guilty and won't get a fair investigation/trial because of who he is, and that this will likely take him away from his son.
