It would also require her to focus the show on other characters aside from Adam!!!! After witnessing her fall of the wagon systematically over the past nine months, I have to ask: Is Maria still capable of this sort of storytelling?? Log in to Reply CarlyCfan June 8, 2010 Well, don’t think she is. But i try to hope for the best, while expecting the worst lol. I just don’t think that they would hire an emmy-winner not to mention a hottie like Jeff Branson to play detective whathisface. He has to be tied to the canvas somehow and we know that Nina and Chance are goingto have a story this summer with The Bug. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 8, 2010 I don’t want Jeff to be Chance’s long lost brother. I am still secretly hoping for Chance to make the BIG REVEAL, and for Jeff’s new character, his "partner" to be there waiting to offer his compassion and understanding…..among other things. (if you get my drift!!) LOL!! Fingers crossed. Throw in Rafe and watch the sparks fly!!!!!!!!!!!!! Log in to Reply RebeccaJ June 8, 2010 Why does everyone keep looking for a gay character? First of all, we have a gay character on Y&R that they’re totally incapable of writing for. Why add another? Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 8, 2010 RebeccaJ– It was a JOKE. You were supposed to laugh, not take it seriously. LOL!!!!!!!!! I have accepted Chance’s heterosexuality……..(begrudgingly so!) Log in to Reply reggyreg June 8, 2010 Many believed Jeff Branson was going to play the real Adam Newman. I guess that option has gone out the window. I hope he is paired with Sharon! Log in to Reply DenverDean June 8, 2010 Y’all beat me to it! He’s Nina’s first born. This is one thing I could definitely accept. Perhaps the reason for Christine’s return? The could make up for the Phillip fiasco. Log in to Reply The_Moustache June 8, 2010 Put him with Chloe. they were hot on All My Children, until he started beating her. Log in to Reply Forever8 June 8, 2010 Jeff could have been playing Nina’s first born son who is just happen to be adopted by a top political family and ends up running for mayor of Genoa City. And it just happens Chloe and Chance our happy together and even in engaged. Jeff’s team could of hired Chloe as a style consultant and the two of them instantly hate each other. But they start having feelings for another. Chance gets jealous of it awhile Paul. and Nina try to track down Nina’s son. and bam they find out but by the time they find out the truth. Chloe and the first born already slept together. It can be like Vicky Ryan and Grant triangle like from Another world .

Maybe Kevin Schmidt will be back! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
