Mark Grossman has been confirmed as the new Adam on "The Young and the Restless," with a projected first airdate around the middle of May. Viewers, however, have been given not one clue of what will transpire that leads to his return to Genoa City. Victor has been keeping secrets from his family and left town again immediately after Neil Winters memorial service. Nikki was flabbergasted as her spouse asked her to be patient and trust him. He told her he would eventually tell her everything, but for now, she and Victoria, as well as loyal fans are still in the dark. The Newman patriarch's activities, as well as details related to the return of his son, continue thus far to be veiled in secrecy.

Adam's return remains a mystery

Celeb Dirty Laundry rehashes the details of what led to Adam Newman's alleged death for new "Y&R" viewers. Chloe drugged him then set the cabin on fire that he was waiting in for his wife and son. There was an explosion and nothing was left except for DNA verifying that Victor's son was dead. Now that the prodigal is returning, one big question that needs to be answered is when did the Newman patriarch realize his son was alive?

The storyline for the last two-and-a-half years did not give any indication that Victor believed his son was alive, because he went after Chloe, and allowed Nick to marry Chelsea.

Soap Opera Spy teases that Victor will keep his promise to Nikki. This may be a long time coming and does not take away her disappointment because he left immediately after Neil's service. Spoilers believe Victor is caring for Adam and preparing to bring him back to Genoa City, but details have not yet come forth. The mystery of where he's been for 30 months will no doubt be unraveled bit by bit.
