Adam seemed to go from being tormented with internal demons to feeling he was completely cured and mentally stable. So, what did happen to Adam's inner child who had tried to caution him away from trouble? Will his hospital stay help Adam as Victor and Sharon hope? Will Adam be grateful to them or will that only add fuel to his need to get back at his father? And just who really did try to shoot Adam? (I'm betting not Billy.) Give the devil his due, and a rolling stone gathers no moss in Two Scoops..

Sally Spectra arrived in Genoa City and was ready to start a brand-new life with a brand-new job and, hopefully, a brand-new love. With her flair for fashion, should Sally join forces with Chelsea and Chloe? Since Summer was the first person she met, and since Summer only wants a man when she can't have him, could Sally eventually be linked up with Kyle? And no matter how much the eleven-year-old child in him pleaded, Adam moved ahead with his frightening plan for Newman Tower. Will the boy in Adam be able to stop the adult in time? And Chelsea's been kidnapped -- by someone very familiar to her. All this and more in Two Scoops.
