The truth about Connor's diagnosis hit home hard on The Young and the Restless. Chelsea and Adam were devastated when learning about his OCD.

Their support of Connor reinforces the latent feelings his parents hold. Devoted viewers know that Chelsea and Adam's love story has been interrupted but arguably endures under the surface. Fans can assert that Sharon was or is Adam's most electric love. But, Chelsea checks different boxes and retains wide spaces in his mind and heart.

Thankfully, Judah Mackey's character has made recent progress. A summertime recovery period offers Chelsea and Adam an opportunity to remain nearby, with their son's best interests serving as the logical reason for multiple togetherness moments.

Chelsea Lawson and Adam Newman's momentum is undeniable

Whether this one-time couple reunites for a third remarriage is questionable yet plausible. Chelsea and Adam were married twice, with the first nuptial happening during the Michael Muhney era in 2012. They divorced in 2013 and remarried in 2014, with a divorce occurring that same year.

The passing of a real-time decade is an eternity in the soap world. But currency and the confluence of plot factors have created legitimate reunion speculation.

What happens to Sally Spectra?

Nick is always a revisit option for Sally if Adam were to reconnect or fully recouple with Chelsea. Joshua Morrow's character offers his shoulder to Sally, and she can easily lean on it.

Renewed conflict with Newman Enterprises would be in order along with the personal fallout. Nick and Adam are currently co-heading the family business. However, Victor's intention of installing Adam at Newman Media could be facilitated through his projected reconnect with Chelsea, which might make the feasibility of remaining Nick's temporary co-head untenable.

Kudos to Courtney Hope, who earned her first Daytime Emmy award earlier this month. The move of Sally from sister show, The Bold and the Beautiful, is a significant win for all involved.

What happens to Billy Abbott?

Billy has fallen back in love with Chelsea, but her heart has and likely always will beat strongest when Adam enters the room.

Jason Thompson's character currently believes he has convinced Lily to join him in a detached Chancellor corporation. She has teased him with the presumed potential of giving her brother the Winters half of Chancellor-Winters while also adding the Abbott name to the front of Abbott-Chancellor.

But, viewers saw Lily tell Devon and Nate that she has Billy where she wants him. The implication is that Billy and Jill are in for a corporate jolt.

Billy could lose Chelsea and not have Lily as a business partner or a romantic reconnection option. Victoria's head has returned to her firstborn's (Claire) father, Cole. So, the possibility of Billy returning to his greatest love, Victoria, falls outside the daytime hand he holds.

The summer solstice line was crossed. Naturally, the sun's rays' heat shines brightest in Genoa City, Wisconsin, during this year's season. Based on history and the greatness of the soap opera genre, fans anticipated fiery reactions that could be sparked by the potential of Chelsea and Adam's remnant feelings for each other.
