I, too, enjoyed Ashley's return, for as long as it is!
No matter how hard my heart was tugged yesterday watching the final scene between Adam and Victor, I can't be Team Adam. Devon raised excellent points in their discussion, gave Adam solid advice from a perspective he knows. Watching Adam mock Devon for this perspective was maddening.
And like @boes said above, it's not as if Adam grew up with people who didn't love him! It's not as though he wanted for anything - except the love his father. But who kept Victor from Adam - wasn't it Adam's mother? There's enough blame to go around here.......and at a certain point, at least in my own life I've found this to be true, you have to leave behind what isn't working, you have to rise above and be the better person despite your perceived "circumstances".
