Adam Newman & Rafe Torres
Revenge was uppermost in Adam Newman’s (Michael Muhney) mind in 2009 as he sought vengeance on his father
Victor for abandoning him as a child. Zeroing in on Victor’s vulnerable and pregnant wife Ashley ( Eileen Davidson), Adam slowly terrorised Ashley into having a mental breakdown as he tormented her into thinking she was seeing the ghost of Victor’s dead wife Sabrina (Raya Meddine).
Finally, disguised as Sabrina, Adam caused Ashley to fall down the stairs and suffer a miscarriage. Subsequently, Victor grew suspicious of his son’s behaviour and asked Adam’s friend and lawyer
Rafe Torres (Yani Gellman) to investigate him. It soon became obvious to Adam that not only was the openly gay Rafe investigating him but that he was also falling in love with him.
Taking advantage of Rafe’s passion for him after realising that Rafe had uncovered his crimes, Adam quickly seduced Rafe into bed and used their sexual interlude to blackmail him into keeping quiet about Adam’s sins. Rafe hoped Adam was falling for him too but ultimately, Adam’s bisexual ing was just a calculated endeavour to keep Rafe’s mouth shut. However, after Adam’s girlfriend Heather Stevens (Vail Bloom) found out what Adam had done to Rafe, she dumped Adam, thus leaving Adam with nobody.
