‘Young and the Restless’: Billy Vendetta Against Adam Wrong – Delia’s Death His Fault Too

Young and the Restless spoilers hint that Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) keeps up with his vendetta against Adam Newman (Mark Grossman). It’s all about the death of Delia Abbott (Sophie Pollono). Billy has always blamed Adam 100% for her death, but he’s overlooking another culprit – himself. Also, Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) holds Adam solely accountable. Both Billy and Chloe went so far as to try and murder Adam. So, will they finally stop and reconsider? Doubtful. Chloe is back to town soon and she and Billy might scheme against Adam. Here’s a look at why Billy needs to check himself on this issue on the CBS soap.

Young and the Restless: Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell Tried to Kill Adam Newman

Chloe and baby daddy Billy are capable of killing in revenge – at least when it comes to Adam Newman. Remember years ago on Y&R, when Billy Abbott was Billy Miller and Adam Newman was Michael Muhney? Billy shot Adam then they ran off the road in a car. It looked like Adam died a fiery death. When he resurrected that time, Chloe Mitchell ran him over with a car and then tried to blow him up. So that’s several times they premeditated murder to try and kill Adam. Meanwhile, what Adam did was accidental.

And now, conveniently Adam just took another bullet. The two suspects at the top of the list must be Billy Abbott and scheming Chloe. Of course, most in town think Chloe is dead and buried herself. But Victor Newman (Eric Braeden Gudegast) knows she’s alive, so he might already be calling Chloe and Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) to find out where she was when his beloved namesake son was shot. Billy was getting busy with Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) at the time, but he might have hired someone to shoot Adam Newman on Young and the Restless.

Y&R: Should Adam Take the Blame for Delia Abbott’s Death?

Looking back at Young and the Restless history and you see that Adam Newman’s role in Delia’s tragic death was incidental. It was random that he struck the little girl. It could have been any other motorist. The question is why was she running around a road in the dark? That blame lies with one man – and it’s not Adam! Delia Abbott was with her dad Billy Abbott the night she was run down. It was Billy that chose to leave his little girl alone in the car. This was at an age you would not and should not leave a child alone in a vehicle.

Then on Y&R, she got out and went chasing her puppy. That put her into the road for Adam to run over. He didn’t have a chance to avoid striking her and wasn’t even sure what happened. This was not an action that Adam Newman did deliberately. Later, he did engage in a cover-up. But the accident that caused Delia Abbott’s demise was just that – an accident. And it wasn’t Adam that put her in the road. Tons of CBS soap viewers are raising their voices on social media in outrage for Billy starting this up again with Adam about Delia on Young and the Restless.

Adam Newman Doesn’t Need This Old Drama

Most fans of Young and the Restless see that Adam Newman running over Delia Abbott was nothing but an accident. What he did after was sketchy, but the event that caused her death was unavoidable. Many viewers are also irritated, based on Twitter chatter, that the writers are re-churning this heartache with two new actors in the pivotal roles. The final scenes with Muhney and Miller and later with Mitchell and Hartley were spectacularly done. So, why tamper with the past like this?

There’s plenty more to explore with resurrected Adam Newman. So, let’s hope that the Y&R writers aren’t going to dwell on this for too long. This plot frustrates fans – the same fans that were initially so excited about the resurrection of Victor’s favorite son. What do you think? Should the CBS sudser have left this alone? Do you think that Billy Abbott is as much to blame as Adam Newman for Delia Abbott dying?
