The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman) caught up with TV Guide Canada’s, Nelson Branco, for an insightful interview from the man who has to play that he is consistently torn between women…Phyllis and Sharon.   While Morrow gives his thoughts on Phick vs. Shick fan bases, his contract dispute at one time with Sony, and his thoughts on Y&R’s doppelgangers, it is  however, the big question that Morrow  was asked, “What is his take on who the biological father of Summer really is?”  It’s a plot point that had been dropped since Nick’s amnesia episode a few years back that could eventually spell more trouble for Phick.   Here are a few excerpts:

Morrow on if he remembers that Nick’s amnesia happened around the same time the DNA results came in for Summer: “Yeah, I remember. Dude, I would have bet my house that Jack is Summer’s child. And she still may be. And probably is. When all that went down I thought when Nick regained his memory there would have been some eureka moment. But maybe it’s still a memory that still remains repressed for Nick. I’m sure they are holding that story point for later.”

Morrow on if he thinks the Y&R writers will make Jack, Summer’s real father: “From Joshua’s point of view, I think they will, but you’re right — it’s gone on way too long for them to reveal it now. The way Nick and Summer bond … Well, it’ll be tough if he reveals he’s not her dad now. But I’m a betting man and I’ll bet anything that she’s Jack’s baby.”

Morrow on Phick fans freaking out if Summer were to be revealed to be Jack’s. “Yeah, they would. Y&R missed the boat to tell that story when Nick got his memory back. The fans would have forgiven Nick at that point but now it’s just cruel to withhold that information. To give away any tie that Nick holds with Phyllis would be a huge mistake. To get rid of that would be detrimental to Phick, who was brought together essentially by one mistake, which is Summer. Jack and Phyllis could always have another baby.”

Well, why bring that issue up now. It isn’t pertinet to any story. The only thing that would be good about that would be that Jack doesn’t have a child of his own. So, why tear Summer away from the only parents she has known? She has had problems early on in her childhood. I say, leave it alone!

I think the whole point is that Nick sees Summers romantic attraction to her possible stepbrother and is afraid Summer is going to get involved with Kyle which she is now actually planning. Think what kind of disaster this would be if she is successful and then finds out that Kyle is her stepbrother.

Not stepbrother but half brother

Yes your are right! Still a disaster if it happens. I can’t imagine what both of them would feel and Nick would be fully responsible.

Doesn’t he mean that Sharon and Jack can always have more children? If I recall correctly, it was a miracle that Phyllis got pregnant and carried Summer to term.

Bad storylines, bad acting, history rewrites, that’s why soap audience has dwindled. Then you factor in the kind of crude reporting Nelson branco does, it’s enough to drive people to quit soaps.

I hope it does get revealed to be Jacks daughter instead because I have always hated Nick & Phyllis as a couple.I can’t believe it’s gone on this long!

Summer is Jack’s and too bad it has taken so long that Jack has missed her baby days and Nick being Nick is attached. …but with the lie comes Phyliss who he should have never messed with.. younger viewers [and evidentally Y&R writers ] don’t recall her past horrors…most seriously in trying to run over Cricket she nearly killed Paul. She is the DEVIL!! If writers ever need a recount of the past re: y&r call one of the many old timers with minds like a steel trap. We don’t forget or forgive the Phylisses of the world.

I would love it if Summer was Jack’s. She could see both of them as her dad.

Summer is Jack’s. She has blond hair like Jack, not red like Phyllis or even brown like Nick… yep… Jack’s kid…

I will be glad when it comes out that Summer is Jack’s child. There will be no more ties between Nick and Phyllis. That way when Sharon and Nick get back together there will be no more Phyllis.

Summer will always be Nick and Phyllises “Super Girl”………No question in my mind. If there was any doubt it would have been revealed when Nick got his memory back. The character of Nick is not my favorite at the moment………He needs some growing up to do.

I’m sorry, gang, but I’m telling you–I’ve been watching Y & R for decades. I’m telling you this storyline is going to be reintroduces at the most interesting time. It may not be any time soon, but it’s going to come out. You guys know Y & R will let a secret fester for YEARS before it comes out. You might as well get ready for Summer to be revealed as Jack’s!

I have always been a fan of Y&R since my high school days of Snapper. It has always been a fascinating soap. I would really love that this child Summer would be Jack’s baby. I don’t like Phylis with Nick, I only like him with Sharon and she does not belong with Victor, he only needs to be with Nikki and she does not belong to be with jack. Let Jack and Phylis be together, they are both bad seeds.

Has anyone thought about the Kyle/sumer relationship and what would happen if they had relations and later found out they were brother and sister?

i too have said from the very begining that Summer was Jack s. I don t think that they will have relations before it s found out. Look at Cricket and her half brother years ago. The writers never have let it get that far. Did any one see that off balance kiss Summer and Kyle had on Friday after their date? I would love for Summer to be Jack s just so Phyllis can blow a gasket! Never cared for her and Nick. She will have lost her so called connection to Nick.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
