Adam Newman has done some terrible things in his life and it has been difficult for some in Genoa City to see the good in him. Victor has always stood by his son’s side, but even he is fully aware of the darkness within Adam. Accused of poisoning Rey, Adam skipped town, but Nick tracked down his brother to bring him home as he was their best hope of saving Faith’s life.
Having returned home to help Faith by donating a kidney, Adam is also being hunted by the police, especially Ray. And as the walls close in on him, he must figure out if there is any way he can redeem himself in the eyes of his family.
In a moody dream, Adam finds himself sitting at a table playing chess with his father as large playing pieces surround them on the black and white squares of the floor. “Since when do you and I play by the rules?” Adam asks. Victor eyes his son and declares: “You are the master of your own fate. Whatever choices you make now determine your future.”
Then Billy appears at the table with a warning. “This is your last shot at redemption,” he says grimly. “If you don’t start thinking about this game entirely different, you’re gonna end up with nothing.” Adam looks from his nemesis back to his father as he contemplates his words. Can Adam change his ways…and convince everyone that he truly means it?
