In a chilling General Hospital (GH) development, Adam’s stress and parental expectations manifest in alarming hints, suggesting a dark turn ahead.
As his parents press him to pursue a medical career, Adam’s emotional struggle intensifies.
A concerning comment about jumping off a bridge raises questions about his mental state, foreshadowing a potentially harrowing Christmas for the troubled character.
GH fans brace for an intense storyline as Adam grapples with overwhelming pressure and hints at a disturbing path that could alter his life forever.
Adam’s Struggle with Expectations
Adam might have given away a hint as to where his plot will go next. Adam’s parents are putting a great deal of pressure on him because they want him to become a doctor and will not settle for anything less than academic excellence.
Adam’s thoughts dipped to a rather depressing place while he was waiting on the outcome of his makeup test.
When Adam pretended that his test results were not good enough, he seemed as though he might as well jump off a bridge. However, Josslyn quickly corrected him.
While Adam expressed regret and attributed his poor sense of humor to nerves, there was likely more to that statement.
It appeared to have prepared Adam for the day when he would choose to take his own life. Carly was upset to hear that Adam was spending Thanksgiving alone, as Josslyn had mentioned.
If Carly had known, she would have invited Adam to join them for their celebration; perhaps she would have encouraged Josslyn to extend an invitation to Adam for Christmas.
Unfortunately, as shown by the occasion when he misled his domineering father about the necessity of taking Josslyn to the ER, Adam has proven that he will tell lies when it suits him.
Adam’s Isolation Intensifies
Rather than admitting that he was the reason they missed the first exam, Adam did not want to tell his father.
Adam might tell Josslyn a fake story this time about how busy he is for the holidays.
Adam is already vulnerable, so it would not be difficult for his plan to spend Christmas at home to fall through and leave him alone.
Adam might overdose on all the pills he keeps taking, but that “joke” about jumping off a bridge seemed a lot more suggestive than funny.
On Christmas Eve, might Adam go down to the footbridge and try to blow everything up? That is a possibility worth taking into account, particularly since it would enable Josslyn to potentially learn that Adam is missing and locate him just in time.
Josslyn seems to be attempting to talk Adam down from his precipice, which is easy to imagine. If Josslyn tries to pull Adam back and she goes too near the edge, there is even a chance she could endanger herself.
If Joss finds herself hanging and needs Adam and Dex to pull her back up, that would be quite the twist! Such a situation need not occur on a bridge.
If Adam tries to commit suicide on the GH roof or somewhere similar, perhaps the hint was not meant to be taken so literally.
Adam’s potential downward spiral, as he may eventually feel as though he is unable to bear the pressure any longer.
