Can Jack and Nick Ever Be Friends Again on The Young and the Restless?



Nick’s (Joshua Morrow) dirty, little secret about Summer’s (Hunter King) paternity is one of the biggest storylines The Young and the Restless has going at the moment. TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan caught up Peter Bergman and chatted about Jack’s reaction to the shocking revelation. Can Jack ever forgive his former stepson for this betrayal?


TV Guide Magazine: So how does Jack react to the good news-bad news?

Bergman: At first he's just gobsmacked. It's pure shock, because he's always felt a special connection to Summer. He really loves that girl and has long had a sense of envy that she was Nick's child. So, in that way, his dream has come true. But, then, he can't get to the bottom of things fast enough. How long has Nick known? How long has Phyllis? How many other people know about this? Jack has always had a soft spot for Nick. He helped raise the kid. He taught him baseball! I can't imagine them ever being friends or allies again. How do you get over that kind of deception?

What does he mean "There will be something bigger to distract Jack from the "Summer thing""? Unless Phyllis is dying, what could be bigger than THAT?!

I'm afraid they're gonna pull something utterly stupid yet again and overshadow the Jack/Summer drama with something trivial like yet another corporate war between Victor and Jack.

I hope that Nick has to pay in a huge way. Through this storyline he has behaved like a royal jerk. I could overlook even the fact that he lied all those years ago. But his actions now are so selfish, even cruel.

First he doesn't want to tell anyone while Summer falls in love with Kyle. It doesn't even matter if Kyle acts on the feelings Summer has for him. As the father you have to step up before something even more serious happens. But Nick just wanted to sit and wait.
In the meanwhile Phyllis is stupid enough to fall for Nick's plan and tries to provent things by getting close to Kyle. Only to be judged by Nick of course.

Anyway Nick decides to let Avery know the truth after he forbid Phyllis from telling Jack the truth. Wtf!? If you wanna spill shouldn't Jack, who considers Nick a friend, the first to know?

Nick's acting selfish and irresponsible like usually. I only hope this time he has to pay in some way. You can't go around with a judgy nose while you continue to live the life of a coward.

All the hateful things Nick said to Sharon and Phyllis in the past, I hope these two get to use this opportunity somehow.
But with Sharon well, she's already dreaming about a life with Nick again knowing the truth - even though he screwed her MULTIPLE times.

Jack will eventually forgive him. He's Saint Nick after all. Some whitewashing will go down, and/or someone will do something worse (probably Sharon or Phyllis) to distract the audience, and it will be as if it never happened at all.

The only characters allowed to be town pariahs longterm are Sharon and Adam.

And the best part was the way those scenes were written. As if Nick were morally COMPELLED to tell Avery as soon as possible. Where was all that morality when he kept the truth from the people he claimed to love most all those years ago?

Nick made me sick yesterday when he allowed Avery to go nuclear on Phyllis. Phyllis kept looking at him to step up and take the blame and all he did was, "Avery, um, wait, uh." It took him nearly half an hour to finally admit that it was all his fault. And did he or Avery apologize to Phyllis? No. Then today, he goes off on Kyle for doing exactly what he's been wanting Kyle to do for months. Like it's Kyle's fault that Summer is such a fragile little brat that anytime she doesn't get her way, she does something monumentally stupid. Nick even was testy with Jack for not realizing that Summer was planning on leaving. You just know he was thinking, "That's why I'm the better dad." I hope Jack and Phyllis both wipe the floor with Nick.

Meanwhile, does anyone else think that Sharon messed with the paternity test so that Nick would think Summer is Jack's? Her confessional at Cassie's grave the other day had me wondering.

AM I the only one that can't stand to hear PB talk about how much he loves who he thought was someone elses kids in Summer and Nick...but insist that Keemo is wiped from everyone's mind. I just can't with PB...which makes me not with Jack.

Avery is on my last nerve. I dont like her blaming Phyllis without even knowing what the hell she was talking about. She heard 5 words of the convo and started abusing Phyllis. Pfft

@giogio @Angie Lucy: I like Avery a lot. I think she jumped the gun as far as Phyllis is concerned. I think it would have been better if Nick grew a set and actually told Avery that Phyllis had NOTHING to do with this. It's not Avery's fault or Phyllis' fault, its Nick's. Now Nick is trying to blame everybody else for what HE did. Btw, I do blame Phyllis a little here. If nothing for not blowing the whistle. I mean she's going to sacrifice her being happy with Jack for an arrogant jerk like Nick is being? Are you kidding? Even if Phyllis tells Jack, it's not like Jack isn't a good guy.

I find the Nick/Phyllis/Summer/Jack story line a bit on the crazy side. Phyllis should have just gotten Jack and Summer together and told them the story that Nick relayed to her. Now everyone is going to try and blame her, for something that she knew nothing of and to top it off, put her with dipshit Kyle. How sad to have to watch this.

The story line just gets more dreary by the day with despicable Nick morphing dangerously ever closer into the still incredibly despicable Victor. And while no fan of Avery, she did have every reason to lash at Phyllis initially at the revelation the way it was presented to her.

Jack and Nick are pretty much equally flawed, so I'm sure it'll happen.

I liked the scenes with Nick, Phil and Avery. Avery's character is at its best when going against Phyllis. Lash away. And also she was right considering what she did to Danny.
