‘The Young And The Restless’ Spoilers: Adam Is Alive! Chloe Not A Murderer?

The Young and the Restless spoilers teased that Adam is alive and that he escaped the cabin explosion. Does this mean Chloe is not a murderer?

Adam survived the fire.

Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and everyone else in town thinks she is a murderer, but CelebDirtyLaunrdy teased that Adam Newman (Justin Hartley) is alive and will return to Genoa City in time.

Legally speaking, this would only make Chloe guilty of attempted murder.

The teased reveal that Adam survived the cabin blast has yet to take place on The Young and the Restless.

For Adam to have escaped the cabin before Chloe blew it up would have to mean that he was conscious before the blast. However, Chloe did shoot him with a tranquilizer gun that appeared to contain enough sedative to knock him out for a bit.

The last shot of Adam was through his view and his eyes appeared to go dark.

The Young and the Restless spoilers revealed that there was no conclusive shot of Adam being blown up in the cabin, clearly to provide suspense for a possible return.

If Adam remained slightly conscious, he could have escaped when Chloe left from any other cabin exit.

Adam probably won’t be played by Hartley again.

Justin Hartley scored himself a role on the hit NBC show, This Is Us, which was so successful that it was given a two-season renewal after the first season.

So unless he was given permission from NBC and wanted to work part-time during the off-season, he’s not returning to The Young and the Restless.

Back in 2014, a re-cast for Adam was played out in a dramatic fashion after Michael Muhney left the show. He has publicly stated his desire to return to the show on various occasions, but it is more likely that a fourth actor would be hired to play Adam.

Unless The Young and the Restless could get the first adult actor who played Adam, Chris Engen, to return to the soap opera for a dramatic surprise.
