When THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Nick recently found himself staring at one particular envelope, we could almost hear fans draw in their breath in anticipation. After all, this isn’t just any envelope, but the one that contained Summer’s paternity results all those years ago. For Y&R newbies or for anyone who needs their memory refreshed we thought it would be helpful to fill in the backstory!
Years ago, Nick was devastated when his adopted daughter, Cassie, died after a tragic automobile accident. With his life and marriage to Sharon spinning out of control, the hunk began a torrid affair with Phyllis. Of course, Nick wasn’t the only one cheating Phyllis was also stepping out on her man, Jack.
Just when the couple’s affair was exposed, Phyllis discovered that she was pregnant. Unfortunately, she wasn’t entirely certain if Nick or Jack was the babydaddy! A paternity test was done, and when the results were mailed back, Nick picked up the envelope, viewed the contents, and then announced that he was the father of Phyllis’ child!
Later, Jack actually helped deliver Summer after Phyllis went into labor while they were stuck in an elevator during an ice storm. That, along with the fact that only Nick had seen the results of the paternity test, led some to speculate that maybe Jack was actually Summer’s biological dad. Now with Nick freaking out about Summer’s increasing closeness to Jack’s son, Kyle, and pulling out that old envelope again, will we see a new twist to this old babydaddy storyline? It’s certainly looks likely!
