The Young And The Restless (Y&R) scoop suggests writers may have backed Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) into a corner.
He killed a man when he was a kid, and just had the former love of his life kidnapped. Plus, it looks like he’s planning to blow up Newman Towers, with his entire family inside. Can he come back from this?
Adam has always been a love to hate kind of character and fans root for him and against him, depending on the storyline. Many were even on his side when Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) published the scathing exposé on him, The Making Of A Monster.

Then he received a delivery. When he opened the box, there was a cannister inside that looked like it could be some kind of bomb. Next week, we’ll see him with his finger on the trigger, ready to blow up Newman Towers. If he detonates, can the character come back from something like this?
It’s not like Adam hasn’t done highly questionable things before. He kidnapped Faith Newman (Alyvia Alyn Lind), making her parents think she was dead. A few years later, he hit Delia Abbott (Sophie Pollono) with his vehicle and covered up the evidence. Although some viewers still think he didn’t actually do it.

Just last year, he switched out Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) medication, knowing full well it could kill him. However, Victor was onto to him and faked his own death, hoping to teach his prodigal son a lesson.
No matter what the character has gone through, Adam always seems to bounce back. Perhaps the same thing can happen this time. So, what do you think? Have writers put the final nail in Adam’s coffin? Vote in our poll below.
