‘Young and the Restless’: Adam Hired the Shooter – Extreme Scheme to Con Victor?

Young and the Restless spoilers tease that Adam Newman’s (Mark Grossman) assassin might be the last person to suspect. Could it be Adam himself that set up the shooting? It might be a scheme to take advantage of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden Gudegast). This is an extreme Y&R spoilers theory, but looking back over the history of Adam’s character, it is something that he might do. So, did Adam have himself shot? Here’s how and why this may be a CBS sudser twist.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Adam Newman Shot – But Did He Set It Up?

The latest Y&R spoilers show that Adam is very lucky to come through his shooting ordeal so quickly. But is it a bit more than luck? While it seems right now he’s a victim, there might be more to this. First, consider the facts. Adam Newman was shot and about 30 seconds later, Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) found him. That was pretty convenient and lessened the risk of death. Second, Adam just had a fight with Victor and told him he was leaving town.

Third, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) wondered at the hospital how the shooter could have gotten past ranch security. After the ordeal months ago with the barn burning, surely they are on high alert. Finally, Young and the Restless spoilers showed a distraught Victor Newman pleading with Adam Newman on the gurney. He begged him not to die and said he can’t go through this again. Victor thought Adam was leaving town. Then suddenly, a bullet took him down.

Y&R Spoilers: Scheme to the Extreme – Victor Newman Getting Scammed?

This may be a shocking Y&R spoilers theory to consider about who shot Adam Newman. But, knowing Adam’s past plots, it’s plausible. Remember, this is the guy who injected Botox into his eyeballs as part of a plot. So, could Adam be to blame for his shooting too? Next week on the CBS soap, Adam Newman is in and out of surgery quickly. Turns out his life wasn’t really at risk because the bullet missed all his vital organs. Plus, this shooting “miraculously” gave him back his memories.

Young and the Restless spoilers question whether Adam hired an expert marksman knowing they could shoot without aiming to kill. After all, if the shooter wanted him dead, why not put a bullet between his eyes? That could also explain how the “assassin” evaded ranch security. Adam Newman could have let them onto the property. It also explains why the bag of cash is still sitting in the tack house. If it was someone after Spider the gambler, wouldn’t they grab the cash?

Victor Pleads at Adam Newman’s Bedside – Then Gets a “Miracle”

In fact, Y&R fans might be disappointed if Adam was NOT up to something. After all, one of the best things about the character of Adam Newman is that he’s a rascally schemer and bad boy. The Mustache was at his son’s bedside whispering his regrets. He said “they argued for years over ridiculous things” and he never wants to fight with him again. Victor Newman vows, “I’m going to keep you safe my boy”.

Then, Young and the Restless spoilers for Monday show he comes out of his post surgery haze and instantly recognizes Victor Newman and says “dad”. That’s either a miracle or mighty darned convenient. Scaring Victor like that would be a wicked way to make sure he gets anything he wants from his father. That’s a diabolically dangerous plan – but also something that Adam Newman is totally capable of doing… He might be playing Victor like a fiddle which would be a great comeback plot.

Then again, maybe he is innocent in all this. But given the awful plots in Adam’s past, this is something that he is capable of cooking up to get revenge on his family. Wait for more Y&R spoilers to see who shot Adam Newman and whether he did this to himself or is truly a victim.
