Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) is going by the name ‘Spider’ on The Young and the Restless. But is that just part of a plan to convince everyone that memory loss exists when in fact it doesn’t?
Riza Thomas (Tina Casciani) could be part of the ruse as well. She didn’t appear to be living with Adam at his presumed apartment in Las Vegas, Nevada, but could be a paid, or personal partner.
Assume that Riza is in on the setup, somehow. She would have helped Adam to orchestrate the appearance of a poker-playing man who only goes by a mysterious moniker. Cash or private considerations may well have been part of the payoff for her part in this deal.
Y&R Spoilers– How Did Adam Escape The Cabin Explosion?
The Newman family photos Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) provided would have been purposely trashed in order for Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) to find them. Whether Adam would have also pulled the one of Christian Newman (Jude and Ozzy McGuigen) is questionable, as that one was in a drawer.
With whatever happened in the aftermath at the cabin in September 2016, Adam escaped or was rescued. Assuming that dramatic incident caused memory loss is surely plausible. But if it didn’t, then why would Adam be faking it?
As Y&R fans recall, Adam’s past dealings with the Newman clan were tumultuous. However, when is life appeared to end he was on good terms with Victor and Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow). Nothing would have changed in the past two-plus years, as there’s been no known interaction between Adam and any of his family members, due to his assumed demise.
Young And Restless Spoilers– Is Adam Faking His Memory Loss?
On the upside, if Adam is faking memory loss, he could be doing so to protect his family members. Victor and Nick were helping him escape justice when the gas line Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) ruptured caused the cabin to go boom.
It could also be that Adam has sketchy memories (or clear ones) of all that happened. In either instance, he could believe that Victor and the rest set him up for death, with Chloe merely being part of the plan. That assumption would make the memory loss issue part of his comeback, revenge plan.
