‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Adam’s Daddy Issues with Victor Take Center Stage – Rehashed Plot or New?

Young and the Restless spoilers reveal Adam Newman‘s (Mark Grossman) issues with Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) move to the forefront on the CBS soap – yet again. This time, Chelsea Newman’s (Melissa Claire Egan) there for Adam, but do the writers have a fresh perspective or, is this just the same old, same old that Y&R fans have seen a hundred times before?

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Adam Newman Wants Daddy’s Approval at All Costs

Right now, Y&R spoilers set up another showdown between Adam Newman and Victor Newman. This time, it’s about the CEO seat at Newman Enterprises, but only on the surface. Instead, it’s about the youngest son feeling on the outside looking in at Victor and the rest of the family.

Young and the Restless spoilers predict Chelsea sees this, and vowed to help her love get what he wants. But, it’s not so much the job he wants as Victor Newman’s love and approval. Chelsea told her fiance Adam that she knows what he wants from his dad, Victor Newman, even if he doesn’t.

Then, Young and the Restless recaps remind she said that Adam wants Victor Newman’s “respect, trust, and unconditional love”. But come on. We’re talking about The Mustache, Victor Newman. Even as he’s mellowed (somewhat) with age, that’s not something Victor’s known for giving his children.

Y&R Rehashing Adam-Victor Newman Angst – Will They Find a New Angle?

It seems to many Young and the Restless viewers that the writing team that replaced Mal Young is flopping. Fans had high hopes when Josh Griffith jumped on board, but we see a whole lot of rehash. Adam Newman causing Delia Abbott’s death was just a re-do of old material.

Plus, Young and the Restless spoilers had watchers excited when they finally recast Adam Newman. Then, it was all over the place. First, there was amnesia instantly reversed. Next, Victor Newman turned on his son even though he was the one that brought Adam back.

Then, they brought back Chelsea (which thrilled many) but then put her with Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow). It almost feels like Young and the Restless writers rehashed every Adam storyline they’ve done before from the moment he came back. Now, there’s angst with Victor Newman – something that’s been done to death on Y&R.

How Can Adam Win Victor’s Approval on Young and the Restless?

Now, Y&R recaps recall that Victor Newman offered Adam Newman the temporary CEO job. Then, thanks to Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford), Nick decided to butt in and grab it. So, Victor told Adam no, and he had a meltdown on his dad. Will one be poisoning the other again soon?

Over the years, Young and the Restless fans saw Adam Newman gunning for Victor Newman and vice versa. With the latest work twist, it seems the best way for Adam to prove himself is for Nick to fail. With Chelsea conspiring to help him, perhaps she and Adam set Nick up to look bad to Victor.

Maybe (just maybe) the Young and the Restless writers have a fresh angle they’re working for this latest Victor-Adam drama. But don’t get your hopes up. Since they keep rehashing old storylines, they’ll probably look to the past and grab something from there, not realizing longtime CBS soap fans will know.
