SPOILERS: Will Nikki’s Secret Cause Strife On The Young and the Restless?



Nikki: Katherine’s passing has brought up some things in the socialite’s past she thought were long buried. It seems Nikki has a mysterious secret she only shared with Kay, and is not trying to delve back into it. However, Kay’s letter forces Nikki to face her past. Nikki starts to debate long and hard on whether she should do exactly what Katherine has asked her to do in her letter, since it can affect many people around her.

Victor and Adam’s latest round of fighting has troubled Nikki, and she lets her husband know he is not paying tribute to their best friend’s life by acting this way. Nikki implores to Victor to call a truce with Adam and Jack. In true Victor Newman style, he tells her it ain’t gonna happen, while Adam and Jack also balk at Nikki’s request.  Nikki isn’t deterred, and still tries to get the men to bury the hatchet.

Later, Nikki cajoles Victor to head to Katherine’s will reading without her, which gives her the opportunity to speak with Paul about his investigation in private. Nikki decides it is time for her to come clean about what she’s hiding from her past, and fills in her old friend.


Nick/Sharon: As Nick prepares to marry Avery; the first Mrs. Nicholas Newman visits with him under the guise of delivering a wedding present. Inside Sharon’s purse, that sassy little Faith drew a picture of her, Nick and Avery, with the legal maverick’s face drawn over in black! When Nick grills Sharon on what it all means, she feigns shock over Faith’s actions. Nick is clueless (as always) Sharon is the mastermind behind Faith’s behavior, but is determined to set his youngest child straight. Later, Nick and Avery’s wedding hits an unexpected snag. Will Sharon’s plan to break the two up succeed?
 
Victor/Adam: Mr. Moneybags rips Adam for turning on him.

Dylan/Chelsea/Adam:  It seems Mrs. McAvoy’s web of deception has finally caught up with her. Adam eavesdrops on Dylan informing Billy and Victoria about baby Connor having retinitis pigmentosa, the pesky eye disease Adam and Hope had. Once Adam gets this juicy bit of intel, he figures out Connor is actually his kid! Adam marches over to Chelsea’s, and has a showdown with her over his discovery.

Chelsea is not about to dismantle her happy home life with Dylan, despite what Adam knows, and denies it all. While the two former spouses are fighting, Dylan shows up and wants to know what the fussing is all about. Adam simply tells him; Chelsea will clue him on everything and departs. As the moment of truth arrives for Chelsea, will she finally come clean?

Katherine: Expect some fireworks at the grand dame’s will read.

Paul: Genoa City’s new top cop makes an important find in the case involving Nikki.

Cane/Lily/Hilary: The Jabot secretary flips the script on the Ashby's.

    Looking forward to Nikki’s story but hope that it has nothing to do with Dylan as everyone is saying it will. One of my reasons is not that the bloke is on every day almost or insinuates himself into everyone’s story like that nosy body neighbor from BEWITCHED (seriously, Dylan, if Avery wanted to tell you her problems she would call you DON”T HAVE TO GUILT HER INTO IT BY CONSTANTLY SAYING “but I thought we were friends”), or that I just find the character to not be really that interesting…

    why I don’t want Nikki’s story to be about Dylan is that it is all too convenient. Nikki gives up a child for adoption. That child meets Avery and dates her. They break up. He “dies” in Iraq. She devastated. Avery arrives in GC and finds her sister married to Niki’s son Nick. Dylan arrives in town alive conveniently right after Avery’s sister divorces Nick so he can take up with Avery. Katherine dies. Nikki is tormented by her unknown abandoned child. Oh, wait, he just made your latte. Say hi.

    It’s just tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much of a darn coincidence.

    Plus, Dylan’s parents are both dead and he has no family OR FRIENDS to explain why he was never told about his adoption. Plus… hate to say it, unless Dylan is Jack’s he was born WAY before Nick and Victoria so the guy is pushing way past 40 since Nick has a 25 yr old son now so that makes him PUSHING 40.

    Plus, how many paternity/DNA stories can one show do in 10 years? 10/10 and not one DNA lab ever gets it right.

    I hope… and know it aint true… but hope that the writers have come up with a better secret than another baby given up. SUMMER. CHELSEA’s KID and now DYLAN?!

    Hi All….here are a few guesses of what Nikki’s secret is.

    1. She’s reconnected online a few years ago with a old acquaintance from her stripper days that was very young and very smitten with Nikki. After spending much time sexting each other, she’s realized that her old friend Carlos is actually running for mayor of New York City!

    2. Nikki owes the Genoa City Library over $400,000 in fines for never returning the books “Learning to Love Your Mate’s Mustache” and “Does This Stripper Pole Belong In The Foyer?: A Harlot’s Guide to Movin’ On Up” that she borrowed in 1979.

    3. Nikki is actually Katherine’s twin sister and her plastic surgeon was just way better than Kay’s. Katherine kept her mouth shut because she hoped one day Nikki’s age would catch up with her. Katherine could then switch places with Nikki and have a long ride on the Tilt-A-Whirl at Victor’s Mustache Park.

    4. Nikki learned years ago that Dylan was her son. In order to keep him out of Genoa City, she was the mastermind behind the war on terror that led to Dylan deploying to the Middle East. Her friend Carlos was able to get her access to the necessary classified information.

    5. Nikki was part of the focus group that led to the creation of ABC’s “The Revolution”.

    6. Nikki has rented “Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds” 127 times and is in the process of having Carmine serve his sentence as the Newman Ranch Poolboy.

    7. Nikki has banished poor Miguel to the Newman Vaction Igloo in Alaska for mixing up her last names one too many times (is it Reed Foster Bancroft Disalvo Newman Abbott Landers Newman Chow Sharpe Newman or is it Reed Foster Bancroft DiSalvo Newman Abbott Fortensky Landers Chow Sharpe Newman???)

    [quote=The_Moustache]i bet Nikki’s secret is that she has a secret-son/daughter out there and he/she conveniently lives in Genoa City now![/quote]

    Duh. Dylan is her son.

    I think it’s an unpopular opinion: I’m enjoying crazy/manipulative Sharon and her evil mini-me Faith, they’re hilarious! Sharon Case is bringing it and she’s making the usually SUPER boring Nick/Avery pairing kinda interesting.

    Dewlove, Good Morning and THANK YOU for making me laugh this early Friday … I LOVE THE ‘CARLOS DANGER’ THEORY!!!!! BAAAHAHAHA!

    Seriously… Jason Quatermaine would KILL Dylan for being so stupid.

    And I hate to say this folks, I believe we’re going to get this Nicki/Dylan reveal. And being honest?? If TWO Paternity Questions involving the SAME FATHER (Jack) in ONE SUMMER? MY GOD.

    Some originality, PLEASE!!

    kay’s will reading will have jaws ( and panties ) dropping all over Genoa City.

    Sharon is stunned, well – more than ususal – when she is named in the will. Kay has left Sharon a letter as well, informing her that she now has controlling interest in the Victoria’s Secret retail chain.

    Lauren’s letter informs her that Kay has left her controlling interest in the Genoa City chapter of Chippendales – and she has Michael get Carmine out of jail so he can lead the revue!

    Oliver comes over from LA and joins the dance team, as does Billy, Nick, and Murphy!

    Gloria retires from the real estate game, dumps Jeffery, and dates the male dance team, all at the same time.

    It is discovered that Kevin is the real clothing designer, Chloe is just a beard, and he becomes fashion designer for the dance club.

    Victoria departs for LA to finally write that children’s book, and AH is never seen again.

    Daisy Carter returns and sets her sights on Victor, who is all too excited to bring his Tilt A Whirl out of retirement.

    I’m starting to think Nikki has daughter possibly but not sure. The story w\Nikki has me intrigue I must say, I had speculated months on Paul\Nikki (long before the post)because of simple history, but we all know what JFP does to history…

    I digress, it could be Dylan since he’s a the favorite son of YR right now but now I’m curious maybe a daughter as in possibility Avery? More likely with Phuck Phelps it’s Courtney! Which if Courtho, it’s Jack’s and they will pull a LaLucci on the miscarriage…I truly hope I’m wrong on both counts.

    The reading of the will tells a huge part on the direction YR is heading for the future and whom is involved in this story….be scared, very scared because I’m frightened as hell! :O

    As for little Faith the terror tot, I’m all for this story because Nikki sure used little Victoria against Ashley, talk about a slap heard around the world at the time from baby Vicki with Ashley but Nikki wasn’t bat-shit crazy as they are portraying Sharon. Nikki was just plain manipulative which even made it better drama…

    They need to send the character of Sharon away for spell (not permanently) to redeem this character ONCE AGAIN! |( I’m so tired of watching poor Sharon Case in this holy mess of manure, it’s hard to watch, I just cringe! :|

    I don’t know how far Nikki’s story is written. I wonder if it’ll play out like it should or be wrapped up once the new “writers” take over.

    In any event: We got Melody in a story again, so any airtime will have me watching for sure.

    I’m hoping with Dddddylan in his own two or three storylines, that this one WON’T include him.

    I have to say that was very clever of the show to use blindness to bring out the paternity story – good continuity from Adam and his late mom Hope.

    Of course, I will always believe a kid raised by Hope would not have turned out like Adam did. Never.

    Yes pjc, this Show could use a strip club.

    Faith is carrying the Show. That little girl is the best, and has Averyon the run. Sharon Case, give her an Emmy. She is playing manipulative-crazy perfectly.

    Fen, where the hell are you? The Show could use 2 crazies.

    Hooray, the Dylan is Connor’s father s/l is ramping up, hopefully it will wind down.

    With Dylan being Nikki’s child, look for plenty of Adam vs Dylan s/l’s, with Nikki hating Adam even more than she does, as the fight over Baby Connor goes into overdrive.

    I think JFP hit a home run with making Dylan, Nikki’s son.

    I’m looking forward to the story from Nikki’s perspective, but my problem is I still hate Dylan. I usually have to give a damn about long lost children for me to like a story line and if Dylan died tomorrow, I don’t think give a rats ass.

    @ Ryan-Scott – When they first introduced the adult Adam (not just Muhney, but even Engen) they clearly made it a “mythic” Nature vs. Nurture story, in that, regardless of how the mere mortal Hope had raised her son down on the farm, the genes of godlike Victor would eventually rise to the surface and control his fate.

    I’m as much to blame as the rest of us but after reading all the posts I have no idea what’s real, fact or fiction with the show.

    Still fed up with Dylan continually being called Dildo (what is that even supposed to mean anyway?). Also getting quite fed up with the fake scenarios being jokingly concocted (amusing as some of them night be). Give things a bit of a chance because Y&R is really not all that bad right now when it comes right down to it.

    I am just exasperated with the continuing cycles. The main Newmans finally need to lose big time and for good … it’s high time. I intensely dislike most things Newman except for Adam and even Nikki as she is right now (and of course she is luckily only a Newman occasionally by marriage).

    I also still maintain that Jack remains the wronged victim in the Summer mess. He has been extremely calm about it all and has acquitted himself very well. It is the ever spewing Victor causing most of the angst.

    But Y&R does show glimmers of sparks all around that will hopefully strongly ignite.

    I think the secret is that Nikki had twins and they are…..

    Sharon and Dylan. Why they got along so well, could talk, laugh no romance.
    That is what is in Sharon’s letter, telling her she is a twin.
    Wouldn’t that be hilarious.

    Excellent Y&R today! Extras on the set, beautiful backdrop in the park at night. Nikki up front in several scenes. Adam Shedding tears, telling Chelsea off and making a claim to that baby that was validated. Great set usage. Victor and Jack having it out then Nikki getting in the middle. Great show. Lane having a major issue where Ms. Hilary is concerned. It has found its footing. If they can just keep it up.

    I haven’t watched today’s episode, I will tonight but as far as YR “finding its footing” for me YR hasn’t been on its true footing since Kay & Jack was fired, YR has been standing on one foot for years with only bright spots. I’m not evening asking for the quality of the past YR just a resemblance and at least 75% of it’s former glory, I’d be a happy camper! :bigsmile:

    Adam shedding tears could be interesting only because of MM, but the tears should had been shed when he was lying about Faith and Ashley’s baby…burn baby burn >)

    I love Victor\Jack\Nikki when on and lets hope now that Victor knows who the secret investor is will be good drama. Now, this is could a worthy story & Victor\Jack clashing once again, this type of story is classic feud but lets just see if that happens? :~ This whole clashing over Summer is dull, ridiculous and inane. :|

    The show today was good, as they played the right beats with the characters.

    Alas, I do not think things will ever be what they were but at least Y&R is starting to play like a CBS Soap opera.

    Only time will tell…

    I liked today’s episode but I am sorry, I am truly over this Dylan character. I know he is Jill’s dream leading man but I still don’t get his motivation or reason for being in GC.

    As for his part in the Chelsea baby story, ok. WHo cares.

    I think the story would have been tremendous with a blow up doll as a stand in. But PLEASE, stop writing Adam SOOOO aggressive towards women! He can still be a villian without having that much of the in your face aggression.

    While I’m on this story, the supporting played irk me beyond belief rather than Chelsea. Chloe, who came up with the idiotic scheme should have adviced Chelsea it won’t work because in the end, the truth ALWAYS comes out. But they have written Chloe as if she forgot how she lied about Delia being Cane’s kid and then it really being Billy’s.

    Then we have Billy. Not only did he lose his buy a baby baby to its rightful father, but as I mentioned above, his child was kept from him as well. Now, he on’y discovered the truth today because whispering-Toria can’t keep a poker face and revealed all to him. (Sorry for the tiny spoiler but it isn’t like they are central). I hope tomorrow Billy says he can’t keep it secret because of his own experience with Delia no matter how he feels abt Adam. PLUS, 18 years ago, Victoria’s own brother concealed a secret that Jack had a child and on;y now knows it… 18 years later.

    And then we have Victoria. Are we to believe that she is that cruel after all that she has done to have a child and to keep 2 children that she would conceal the paternity of her own flesh and blood because she … somewhere annointed God… doesn’t think Adam is good enough to be a father?

    Honestly, go to Wikipedia, Victoria, and read up on a man named VICTOR NEWMAN and let me know why you keep going back to him after everything he has done to you, Nick, Abby, Nikki, Ashely, Diane, Julia, Jack, Patty, Colleen, Brad, Tracey, John, Cole, Ryan, Sharon, etc.

    Seriously, I do hope they start writing the characters who are supporting with a bit more conscientious, otherwise, Y&R is doomed because all the characters will lose respect by the fans.

    (Please Avery, take the case!!! ANd develop a relationship with Adam, will yA!!

    I’m sorry but I can’t get past feeling that this latest upcoming Jack and Victor feud is just more of the same old hat with Victor yet again being victorious. Are “they” really so terrified that EB will quit if Victor loses one? Either, or or both would be beneficial to Y&R the way Victor continues to behave and how EB continues to behave and to obviously read his lines.

    I still enjoy Y&R but these same old stories that are going on right now need to change for the better or unexpected (believably) or simply end. There are still good characters and actors all around; just use them.

    Good to see Nikki on. Not nearly as good as when she came back in Nov 2011 as the Town Drunk marrying Deacon, and being the focus of the Christmas Episode, but still good to see her on. Hoping that Dylan is revealed as a Reed very soon.

    Boy, I was SO disappointed, at first from the ending on Friday, come Monday’s episode and it was over Summer! This is poor writing, it would be so more fun watch & entertaining if Jack\Victor clashing like gladiators if Victor found out Jack was the secret investor, this is where a classic feud between these characters would make good TV…I should had known I guess because JFP & Josh is still at YR even if Josh has been shown the door.

    I just couldn’t see Nikki being Dylan’s mother, knowing her age, but maybe she is a lot older than her age that is posted. I have always thought she looked older than stated age and lately she is looking quite haggard and frumpy. She has also definitely, put on some pounds and in close ups looks much older than the 57 year old ladies I am familiar with. I also, could not imagine anyone that gave away a baby, wanting to reconnect 40 years later.

    Sorry Tedew, I have a very good Plasma HDTV and she just looks absolutely haggard on it, and believe me, it has a fantastic quality picture. Today, she reminded me of a stuffed sausage in a too tight wrapper. She should never wear a form fitting dress like that, with her form. Sorry, but she is so stiff and to me, looks to be in pain. Perhaps she is sick.

    Someone mentioned she was having back problems in real life.

    But Melody, like a lot of us, is getting up there in age, but I think she looks great regardless.

    I really, really like Melody Thomas Scott. A lot. She has been The Diva on The Show for the past 20 years, so there is no need to put her down.

    Yojo, as I am a fellow person in their 50s like Melody, why dont you just give it up? Let me tell you, gravity wins. She’s not looking haggard, she’s just looking her age. She deserves applaud for not getting work done — she doesnt ‘do’ botox or anything like that either. So applaud for Melody.

    Look, being 50 and over is hard work. Cant exercise enough, cant recover fast enough when exercise is being done. Cant eat right enough.

    So Yojo, dont do a ‘JFP’ on people/women over 50 yrs of age, and cast Melody aside (let alone Ms Stafford who was only 47 yrs old). OK?
