HomeTVThe Young and The RestlessSharon and Adam Make Each Other Feel Good on The Young and the Restless Luke Kerr April 24, 2013 The Young and The Restless, TV Recap 23 Comments Sharon (Sharon Case) arrived at Adam’s (Michael Muhney) door to lend support to her friend. Adam kissed her, but they soon pulled apart. He later explained she made him feel good. She told Adam he makes her feel good, too. However, before anything more could happen, Sharon got an urgent text reminding her that she forgot to pick up her daughter. Adam sure has a way of distracting Sharon from her children, doesn’t he? Arriving at home, Sharon found Nick (Joshua Morrow) waiting for her. He quickly went after his ex-wife for her relationship with Adam. Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Jack (Peter Bergman) returned from Istanbul, and promptly started talking about his plans for her moving into the Abbott mansion. Just when Jack thought things were perfect, his dear old dead daddy, John Abbot (Jerry Douglas), materialized in a chair and gave him a fatherly lecture. John told Jack that Phyllis was the woman he loved the most, but also hurt him the most. I am so happy Jack and Phyllis are back together. Dylan (Steve Burton) told Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) he wasn’t the type of guy to walk away. After Dylan left, Adam showed up with a gift for their baby and reminded her of the loss of their first child. Avery (Jessica Collins) dropped by Phyllis’ home to tell her sister the big news about her engagement to Nick. As expected, Phyllis was PISSED, and went for the emotional jugular. The episode ended with Sharon returning to Adam’s house to have sex. 23 Responses RealityCheck 33 April 25, 2013 You forgot to mention Adam giving Chelsea their baby’s blanket with and incredible note from Adam. If Chelsea can’t figure out Adam’s true feelings after reading that, she’s a dumb as Chloe. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 April 25, 2013 Shadam hotness and Phack about to move in together were the best thing about this episode. :love: In the beginning I thought Chelsea was another character this show just doesn’t need. But I didn’t care for. Now she is just unbelievable annoying. Her scenes with Chloe are constantly getting on my nerves with these two talking about how to screw men … and what Chelsea is doing to Adam and Dylan is nothing but cruel. The letter from Adam really touched me. Adam was excited to be a dad. Chelsea knows that. It’s the miscarriage he couldn’t deal with. Phyllis is Jack’s great love. I LOVED that Ghost John pointed that out. They are so good for each other but also so bad. I love the story. This is the way Phack deserve to be written. Avery … without words. Stephanie Forrester once said to Brooke Logan on B&B: “This is no halo and you are no heroine”. Avery, say whatever you want and try to be a sister to Phyllis as much as you want … in the end, you are a ho.

For many reasons that we all have seen I just think a new relationship is the way to go with Sharon and Dylan is the guy. It would definitely paint Adam in a new light by showing he can be a friend. Plus, we could see a new love interest come to town for him UNTIL, of course, he discovers Chelsea’s lie. I have fallen to the Avery is not as angelic as I once thought side. After seeing her visit Phyllis and seeing that confrontation, I am not siding with Phyllis but I don’t really see that Avery is all that great anymore. They’ve taken a long time … SINCE the story of Avery and Dylan is played out in EVERY SINGLE EPISODE since Dylan arrived… to tell their story. Log in to Reply thecourt99 April 25, 2013 I don’t dislike Chelsea as much as other seem to. I thought Adam’s letter was sweet, but let’s be real, Adam deserted Chelsea. It would have been nice for her to see, feel, or hear that from Adam while she was grieving. The fact that he left made her feel that he didn’t want the baby in the first place. The fact that one child was taken from her, makes her sensitive that her new baby will be taken. I understand her position.

He seems to forget, on a daily basis, that he chose Newman and his daddy over her yet apparently he has the impression that she’s the one that abandoned him. Guess Nick and Victoria aren’t the only Newman scions who got the hypocritical gene. Log in to Reply harlee490 April 25, 2013 I agree w\thecourt99, I don’t dislike the character of Chelsea either and letter from Adam was great drama and making Chelsea’s guilt get to her. Yes from giving up one child, losing another child she truly wanted she’s scared and concerned about the her child…I find nothing wrong with the story and MCE is pulling it off wonderfully in her scenes. Log in to Reply pferrando April 25, 2013 With the exception of what appears to be an Adam/Sharon pairing…I’m liking the Chelsea pregnancy story. I still like that we see two women as friends, discussing and yes scheming at times. (Christ, how many people do we know like this in REAL life.) Chloe is soooo much better in these scenes than with her (hopefully) soon to be ex. I even liked Dylan for the first time this week when he sat there after hearing he was the father. The letter was a good touch too. A little cheesy, but it did add to her dilemma. Is it possible that Josh has ruined the character of Avery for me with all this Dylan crap? I loved when Avery and Nick were paired because it meant we were finally getting a break from the Nick and Phyllis relationship which had run its course. Then enter Dylan and these endless flashbacks that look ridiculous…I just cringe now when she’s on because I except either a Dylan entrance or yet another flashback. All in all though, we’ve had some good episodes again. No, it’s not all working, but the direction it’s heading is a positive one. My wish is for more balance…take the time to play out all the beats in each story…and please be sure that all the characters are being used. I really miss seeing Paul and Christine (is she back or not?), Jill, Chavez, Victor WITH Nikki…and let’s develop Mason more. Log in to Reply harlee490 April 25, 2013 They need to stop bringing John back so often, it’s getting ridiculous…he should had never been killed off in the first place, but bringing John’s ghost back every month is getting stale and overused now. I love the character but it seems John only appears to Jack, occasionally Billy. If the writers want Jack to interact with a relative how about Tracy coming home or on recurring and maybe time to recast Dina. I absolutely loved the Phyllis & Avery scenes and Phyllis is a viper but she stated some true fact on Avery’s butt…it was wonderful to watch. I loved how Neil clocked on Lily and Lily cowarded from answering dear ole dad, Neil’s is on it! Log in to Reply ChrisGa April 25, 2013 Pferrando, I’d say your post was pretty spot-on. I’m personally not at all looking forward to Adam/Sharon again–I think it just regresses the character of Sharon for the umpteenth time to being weak and needy. Is this woman capable of being JUST FRIENDS with a man without spreading her legs? I actually found it refreshing, for the five minutes it was happening, that Sharon was trying to push Adam to reconcile with Chelsea. Now it’s back to “I gotta have a man and it’s gotta be Adam” again. I’m over it. Love Chelsea/Chloe and yes, it’s the only meaningful relationship Chloe has on the show right now(I’m gonna take this opportunity to refrain from railing yet again on the Kevin character). And I’m with you regarding Avery; I liked the initial Nick/Avery pairing too and as I’ve said before I don’t mind Dylan terribly. I just think the two are terrible TOGETHER and whatever initial fondness I had for Avery slowly diminishes every time I get subjected to her and Dylan’s insta-backstory. I just really don’t care at all about it. And the balance that seemed to be there a few months back is definitely missing now(seemed to occur around the time Steve Burton entered…coincidence? I think not). Definitely think all the characters you mentioned, plus our little hottie Noah, are getting the short end of the stick right now and could use some much-needed attention. Log in to Reply pferrando April 25, 2013 Thanks ChrisGa! Yes…I forgot to mention Noah, as there are so many missing characters right now. He’s so good, we need to get him back on screen. I heard that Kay’s HUSBAND is on today. Finally.

Chelsea made Adam more human & far more likable – although lately not so much w/o her. I agree on all points both of you made in these posts. Log in to Reply richalan67 April 25, 2013 I don’t think of John as a ghost. I view it as Jack’s conscience. Kinda like, “What would Pop say if he were here?”. Tracy is on her way back. Log in to Reply tedew April 25, 2013 I still say that Chelsea knew exactly what she was getting into by falling for Adam; much in the same way that Nikki always remains with Victor. She is supposedly a smart a savvy woman and should have been able to share Adam with Newman. But all she does now is moan and whine and change her mind every time Sharon is even seen or mentioned. It is annoying! And just wondering by the way; do any of you ladies here have any respect or admiration for any of the current main female citizens of Genoa City? Log in to Reply kintex April 25, 2013 Love Shadam but this writing for them is just going to lead to heartbreak. Log in to Reply Mel_O April 25, 2013 So because your husband decides to leave you (which Adam did not, IMO), you have the right to take his child from him? Ok. My main gripe with Chelsea is that she’s not being honest about why she’s doing all of this. One minute it’s Sharon. And then Newman. No, wait, it’s Victor. Make up your mind already! Not that any of these reasons would justify her behaviour. ICAM, with soapjunkie’s halo/heroine line. And I think it could apply to Chelsea too. It’s like they’re trying to convince us she’s some honourable person for keeping her child away from big, bad Adam (which I’m sure is why most people agree with her decision, considering all the stuff he pulled with Sharon/Ashley/Faith), but she knew all about Adam’s past when she married him, so how does that work? I wish for once she would just admit outright that she’s punishing Adam for hurting and deserting her when she needed him most. I mean that I could understand because it would be her truth. Again, it still wouldn’t make any of it right but it would be a hell of a lot more honest. Log in to Reply pferrando April 25, 2013 I like Chelsea or the character of Chelsea, and I totally understand her logic, considering every time she tried to tell Adam or see Adam he was drooling over Sharon. I think when MAB switched how she was being written, by pairing her with Adam, she became likable and wasn’t just a con anymore, even though she’s currently allowing Dylan to think it’s his. She flawed of course, but she’s showing other sides to her. I LOVED today when she basically forgave Summer. It was a great scene for both actresses. If they continue to write Summer a little older, I think it’ll be easier for this actress playing her to relate to who she’s supposed to be. As far as Melissa Claire Egan goes, she continues to be one of my favorite “newer” Y and R actress. Log in to Reply RockiDreams April 25, 2013 I practically fell off the couch laughing at how ridiculous Sharon looked kissing Adam with her head flopping back and forth. I guess that was supposed to be “hot” but came across downright hilarious. I like Chelsea – always have. She needs to stay away from that nutjob Chloe. That actress is absolutely gorgeous. The Lauren/Michael thing is breaking my heart but I really can’t wait until Michael finds out what his little wifey has been up to. Log in to Reply TraceyAbbot101 April 26, 2013 Soooooooooo, someone stop them NOW… Chestie Newman as a “teen model”? Shades of a young Christine/Cricket Blair. I noticed Kay forgot to have Jill call Phillip III and inform him of her surgery. Loved today’s scene with Jill and Nikki… Dylan “almost” had a facial expression today!!! Choloe needs Chelsea. Kevin hasn’t been givin her the goods at home!! Log in to Reply harlee490 April 26, 2013 Yes this week has been SOOOOOOO much better in quality and have enjoyed all of this week’s shows but again they featured more vets. Kay, I broke down crying! So eerie and Jeanne in the hospital it just spelled me…. Yes the scenes at the hospital was very good and with Nikki & Jill, Katherine yelling “I love all of you”…I broke down again…sigh I am actually liking Cane in this story…GO figure! He’s been very good with Katherine. With Chestie as young, fresh model could be the story for youth in summer story which I’m all for but there has to be a wrinkle somewhere…the scene with Chelsea\Summer was quite good. Log in to Reply ANGELWENDY15 April 26, 2013 My favorite scenes are the Victor/ Adam ones in the office. Eric B looks like he’s really enjoying it, being back in his chair. I am liking their father/son scenes. The Sharon/Adam sex scenes seem SO STAGED, rehearsed and phony, which makes me not get into it. Dylan is just looking like an idiot, not asking more questions about the baby. He was only with Chelsea once, what guy wouldn’t look more into it? Steve B looks very uncomfortable in his scenes. The Katherine scenes in the hospital were so touching and her yelling, “I love you all”. Hope all works out health-wise for Jeanne. She was always such a spit-fire, and I’m sure she loves working with that good-looking Cane. Log in to Reply Phyone April 26, 2013 Well, we might as well get ready for it. If this doesn’t happen, the writers have missed a GRAND opportunity. Some say the idea is DARK and insane. I say, it gives Sharon a new dimension; Chelsea a charitable heart; and Adam at least ONE forgiving bone in his body! I wondered why they sliced in that scene of Sharon checking her pill alert. Why, of course! It’s foreshadowing! Evidently, Sharon needs a reminder to complete routine daily tasks like pick Faith up from school. Too bad that alert wasn’t programmed into her iphone but her pill alert WAS. The bi-polar tablet isn’t the only pill Sharon pops: Correct! Her birth control pill! After that Russian duet on the piano and the all-clothes-barred quickie in Adam’s lair, no one should be shocked if Sharon isn’t pregnant! I doubt that Adam took the time to suit up! Okay. Adam fecklessly dumps Sharon because the “meaningless sex” thang ain’t working too well for him. He still has Chelsea on the brain. Not because he’s madly in love with her, oh no, but because Chelsea BESTED him! She wasn’t off somewhere curled up in a ball of misery and pain like he wanted. She was out getting her groove on while he was dreaming of sex with Sharon and taking cold showers! And he hates her for it, dammit! He must hit back…and hard…even cruelly. So he delivers the divorce papers to Chelsea personally. Who does the little con artist think she is? He’ll show her and have the last ugly word! Two things will happen simultaneously to knock him off his petard: Sharon has baby news…and Anita lets the cat out of the bag. What to do? Offer marriage to Sharon or Chelsea? Or the whole thing could go another way. He pursues Chelsea fearing she may wind up married to Dylan…and offers her marriage to give her baby the Newman name. As she considers, Sharon drops her baby bomb! Adam’s mind wobbles. Does he marry the mother of his child or the mother of another man’s child as far as he knows? Here is where it gets dark. Sharon’s baby is in trouble. And it turns out Chelsea’s baby can save the fetus. Harvesting babies to save the life of a sibling has been done before but not on Y&R. I have more, but I’ve taken up enough of your time. Log in to Reply pferrando April 28, 2013 Their sex scenes were clumsy. If they were gonna do it…it could have been a little more rehearsed or less frantic looking. I’m not a fan of this “couple”, but I don’t mind since I’m assuming when Adam finds out about the baby that he’ll ditch Sharon. I’m wondering how many more episodes are already taped with Jeanne, or if they’ll use this natural break in the story to explain her absence? Glad to hear she’s gone home!
