Yes, I'm glad Adams back. It will take some time for me to adjust to him. I really like Michael Muhney as Adam, and I liked Justin Hartley too. This Adam is close to a young Victor look. Maybe that what the writers were shooting for. He does seem a bit young though, but I believe he is the youngest of the Newman sons.
Hope Adams Wilson is Adams Mother. Back in 1993, business Victor Newman left his life in Genoa City behind, and he was presumed dead. He turned up in Kansas just in time to save a blind Hope Adams from a rapist. Victor and Hope bonded on her farm in Kansas until Victor decided to return home to his company, Newman Enterprises. When he heard from a friend that everyone in Genoa City thought he was dead, he decided to stay in Kansas with Hope. Victor and Hope's romance was cut short when Hope revealed that she was engaged to her longtime friend, Cliff Wilson. Victor decided that he should go home for good, but Hope couldn't bear to let him go. She broke off her engagement to Cliff, and she accompanied Victor back to Genoa City. When the pair arrived, Hope met Victor's longtime love and ex-wife, Nikki Newman at the time. Nikki was threatened by Hope, but Hope did not want to interfere with Victor and Nikki's relationship. She decided to return home to Kansas, but Victor followed her.
Once back in Kansas, Hope revealed to Victor that she was a virgin. Soon after, Victor and Hope made love. Victor then proposed to Hope, and she accepted. In 1994, the engaged couple returned to Genoa City to wed. Nikki crashed the wedding upon hearing the news. Still, Victor and Hope were married in 1994. Then, Hope found out that she was pregnant. Victor and Hope found out that their baby could inherit Hope's blindness, and Victor urged Hope to have an abortion. Upset with Victor's idea, Hope returned to Kansas, and she began to spend time with Cliff Wilson again. Victor's friend, Douglas Austin, went to Kansas, and he urged Hope to return to Genoa City and to Victor. During the argument, Hope tripped over a chair, and she was rushed to the hospital. Victor went to Kansas to make sure that she was okay. The next day, Victor Adam Newman, Jr. was born. When Hope told Victor that she planned to raise Victor Jr. on her farm in Kansas, he became extremely upset. Victor and Hope divorced in 1995. Victor then returned to Genoa City, leaving Hope to raise Victor Jr. alone in Kansas. Until later when he brought Adam home to GC where more crazy history continued..
