‘Young and the Restless’ Spoilers: Adam Wants Both Sons – Ready to Battle Nick

Young and the Restless spoilers for summer reveal Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) is back with a vengeance and wants custody of Christian Newman (Jude & Ozzy McGuigen). Fans know that Christian was in the one photo that Adam kept while still suffering amnesia. But with his memories returning, all those feelings come rushing back. That plus the return of Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan) gives new Adam some life goals that will rock Nick Newman’s (Joshua Morrow) world. Here’s a look at how Nick will try to fight back in a family-tearing plot that launches for summer on the CBS soap.

Young and the Restless Spoilers: Adam Newman Won’t Let Nick Newman Keep His Kid

Ever since he heard Adam Newman was alive, Y&R spoilers showed Nick Newman has been in constant turmoil. He’s afraid that Adam will take Christian. These new summer plots predict that’s exactly what Adam decides to do. No doubt, Nick causes part of the problem himself. He already tried to keep Christian away from Adam and only grudgingly let him see his son. Back when Adam decided to let Nick Newman keep him, he was mourning the loss of Sage Newman (Kelly Sullivan) and their child.

Now, Nick is healed and it’s Adam mourning his old life. And the harder Nick works to push Adam Newman out of Christian Newman’s life, the more problems he will create. But Nick is notoriously stubborn. He thinks he can make a case that Adam is unfit and that since he’s been raising Christian, he should be allowed to keep doing it. Once Chelsea Newman returns, she’ll no doubt weigh in since she was part of the decision to let Nick keep Christian years ago, remind Young and the Restless spoilers.

Y&R Spoilers: Newmans Take Sides – Family Fractures Over Adam vs Nick

As summer heats up in Genoa City, Young and the Restless spoilers promise Chelsea Newman returns to be reunited with Adam. Will it be Nick that tells her, though? Already he looked at her texts and decided not to update her. If someone else fills in Chelsea and it’s not Nick, that could set her up to go against him for keeping her in the dark. Chelsea had a gut-wrenching decision when she left town. She had Christian packed and with her, ready to keep Adam’s sons together. But with Adam dead and gone (she thought), she relented.

Y&R spoilers recall that’s why she dropped the boy off with Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and left with only Connor. Now, she returns to find most of the Newman family aligned against Adam Newman. So, you can bet she’ll take his side. This will hurt Nick Newman because he probably still loves her. To see her choose Adam hurts. The threat of losing his son hurts. And Victor Newman (Eric Braeden Gudegast) siding with Adam also wounds him. But since Victor tried to take custody from Nick, of course, he’ll also pick Adam Newman in the battle on Young and the Restless.

Does Nick Have a Legal Leg to Stand On?

In the last custody case, it was a close call between Nick Newman and Victor Newman. With the biological father back in the picture, it will be tough for Nick to win a second time on Young and the Restless. Spoilers say his only recourse is to play dirty. He’ll have to remind the court of every sin Adam Newman committed – and there are many. Already new Adam hates the memories he’s recovered and finding out what a scheming jerk he was. To hear it all in court in the custody case will be even worse.

But Adam can’t change the person he was. He can only try and do better. And Y&R spoilers say that starts with reuniting his family. That means getting back with Chelsea and Connor and bringing Christian home to them. Unfortunately, putting that little Newman family back together could rip apart the other Newman clan in spectacular fashion. Victor and his wife will take opposite sides. Victoria will take Nick Newman’s side over the other. As for Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway), they might not even call her and tell her about it, since they usually neglect her…
