It is disappointing from my Chadam fan perspective that they actually gave Chelly a good love scene and build up to that with the massage and dialogue. They gave them stuff that I wanted to see them give Chadam and also did well with the camera work. Then they give Chelly an actual romantic song during the scene. The nuChelly gets this stuff in their sixth episode and it appears they get romantic/intimate stuff from a promo I viewed of Chelly in the afterglow at the PH and at the Abbott mansion with Chelsea wearing a red dress. It looks like the writers are going all out to sell the pairing and get support for them and I wish they would have given more concentration to Chadam in the past. With that being said, it seems that they stopped doing a lot of that stuff with MM even going back to later MAB days and especially during the JFP days. They have amped things up of late and it appears they are going with the sexual stuff and triangles for July sweeps and then throw in the roof top pool stuff. Meanwhile, they have Adam looking all mopey and throwing temper tantrums with the hand stuff. Did he actually take off the ring, as I did read a tweet about how he starts taking off the ring after seeing Chelsea starting to massage him in the nursery before they left the nursery? I only have watched the massage on the couch and love scene part. It is a little disappointing if that is happening as it seems the writers signal a marriage ending when that happens. Villy still have their rings on and did throughout last year when having problems where Chadam took their off, divorced, and remarried later. That being said, Villy look pretty bad having sex with others while wearing their wedding rings. Hopefully, Adam would put the ring back on during private moments later after arriving back and warming back up to Chelsea. I could see him not wearing it in the sense as that would not work well in trying to woo a woman since otherwise Chelsea would be involved with two married men in her mind. She might realize with Billy that it is too complicated with him.
I had read a comment on another board that someone said that JFP mentioned there was going be more focus on couples and bedrooms, so recently we have Chelly and Sticky having love scenes on floors, so I do wonder if there is any connection to that and these two couples not being their main objective couples. The poster on another board brought up that notion about couples recently not having love scenes in the bedroom. Someone else would have to confirm if JFP said that and before all I know we may be seeing Chelly in a bedroom at the Abbott mansion next week, so that may not mean anything. Plus, I would like Chadam getting anything and different things whether it is the couch, floor, shower, tub, bedroom, etc. The last Chadam and Villy love scenes were in bedrooms.
On other matters, I am disappointed that Chadam only got a brief reunion and did not get a run as a nuChadam and having to deal with more angst than they would have already had without Chelly being romantic. I want the writers to sell the love, commitment, and deeply attached stuff more in the writing and scenes as it pertains to Chadam.
Adam's shenanigans are backfiring. His faking his death led to Chelsea being vulnerable after Chelly started interacting. Now, the nanny cams have served the plot point of Billy reaching to find out where the buzzing in coming from and pulling a muscle leading to Chelsea massaging him and the sex. I am thinking Adam observing this may serve the plot point of him also lying about his identity when reappearing in Genoa City.
One of my guesses has Adam coming back with the new face and identity while being focused on Connor as his priority starts pursuing Chelsea. There might even be a little parallel since Stitch's past is being used in the storyline and I can see Adam doing a better job of having an actual history created for his identity. In thinking about him pursuing Chelsea, what other way is he going to get close to Connor if he does not do that? Sure, I could name some ways, but the one I am thinking of seems to be more of the approach I can see being used. Adam is facing different charges, so he perhaps would have a wall up with Chelsea as he is pursuing her but eventually the wall starts crumbling with the suppressed feelings resurfacing but her eventually finding out who he is and what he was up to. Then the fireworks would happen from there, but he would have already won Chelsea back at the point with my guess on the matter, but it would be up to how Chadam deal with the mess and where things proceed from there. It might be interesting if Chelsea figuring things out and played a long for a while and thus the two cons reconnect with each other and as a family in the midst of their conning efforts. Maybe, they can start conning others from there.
Hopefully, the writers are still invested in Chadam and committed to them as a core loving couple and show this in the writing in the future. I have some confidence but am starting to lose confidence and patience. I know they will need fighting chemistry, but they need the loving chemistry in terms of intimate passion and other scenes involving them as a family and going through things. Hopefully, they will get a recast soon, but it is taking a long time. The actual recast may tell us a lot about the future. I hope they get someone who is younger or at least looking younger than the current Billy.
