Y&R's Peter Bergman Previews The Bombshell Reveal That Jack is Summer's Bio-Dad!

The Young and the Restless, Peter Bergman is about to have some more juicy story when his character of Jack Abbott realizes Summer Newman (Hunter King) is his biological daughter, and that Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) had been hiding the truth for years and now Jack’s gal, Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) is covering it up too!

In a brand new interview with TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, Bergman weigh-ins on the major deception and how Jack will deal with finding out Summer is his child! Here are few interesting excerpts below!

Bergman on how the revelation of being Summer’s bio-dad affects Jack: ” It hits Jack right in his most vulnerable spot. All his life he’s been striving for the thing he can’t have — a solid, happy family. Jack’s mother walked away when he was just a teenager.  And he’s so desperate to keep his dead dad around, he keeps conjuring him up! The loss of family is powerful, primal stuff that can haunt you for life.”

Bergman on how the scenes will be when Summer and Jack both know the truth:   “The scenes where the two of them are finally alone together are brilliantly written. I mean, what do you say under circumstances like that? It’s some of the best material I’ve had in a long time, and Hunter is absolutely spectacular. And, of course, as you know we’ve lost Michelle Stafford. How does Jack maintain a relationship with Summer if there’s no Phyllis around? That’s going to be tricky. Plus there are more big things coming — something really major that will distract Jack from the situation with Summer in a huge way.”

So Y&R fans, are you looking forward to Jack finally “meeting” his daughter? How do you think this will impact the relationships between Nick, Phyllis and Jack? Will Jack begin pill popping again?  Sound off in the comments below!

There are lots of actresses ripe for a Phyllis recast. They should hire Kimberlin Brown and have everyone totally ignore the fact she is a dead ringer for a certain evil someone. On second thought, no GH would do that, not T&R. Haha.

Bring back Mari Jo Mason played by Diana Barton, and if Diana doesn’t want to come back, bring Robin Christopher to play the role.

Jamie Luner (ex-Liza Colby, AMC) … the perfect actress to tackle the role!

After successfully replacing Marcy Walker, she’s definitely up for the challenge.

I agree about Luner. She resembles Stafford and can play “bitch’ very well.

I hate to see Miss Stafford leave. Theis ia challegning recast for producers shoudl they go thar toure. I am not rue they can avoid it, otherwise we have such incompleteness a la a B&B with its absent Ridge. Sometimes storylines take precedence. I need the character to make things work or be there logically to respond and to participate. The change in parternity storyline is working for me, and the show is trying to right its sails after a bumpy few years. I am not thrilled with how some characters have shifted in thought and focus or with new… Read more »

This huge story will not be near as good as it would be if Phyllis were not leaving..
This story is extremely Phyllis involved, and without her, it will fizzle out..

It is a ”’Phyllis” story ! (and Jack, Summer, Nick <– without Phyilis, BLAHHH..

I think Peter will kill it with this storyline. I won’t miss Phyllis for one single second. No longer will I have to endure Ms Stafford and her constant repeating of every line she says. Talk about lazy writing…or maybe it’s Michele’s style. Who knows, but it drives me to fast forward every scene she’s in.

Michelle stafford is a diva period. I’m glad she is leaving. i hope she never comes back to the show. please recast her with liz kiefer ex blake guiding light. the. second choice is robin christopher ex skye gh and ex lorna another world. both are wonderful ladies. and both of them can act too.

Michelle stafford /Phillis is hard to replace..
I doubt they would even attempt to re-cast the roll until end of year, if at all.

I really loved Michelle stafford’s Phillis, she owns the character ..

I will miss Michelle stafford as Phillips, she rocked the character, made it hers….

She’s probably too young to play her, but I think that Laura Stone would be a fantastic Phyllis. She played Skye before she allegedly fell into that darn volcano. At any rate, I wish they would bring the actress back. Other than that, I have no idea who would be the best NuPhyllis.

This storyline is a total mess from start to finish. Who cares about recast Summer hooking up with recast recast Kyle? Their forced “blink and you missed it” romance has taken place mostly off camera (except for that character defining moment when she revealed she likes The Lumineers and Mumford and Sons and he realized she had blossomed into a mature adult — oy) and don’t EVEN get me started on the dumbing down of Phyllis by having her put the moves on her boyfriend’s son as a way of keeping him out of her daughter’s bed. UGH. With material… Read more »

It would have been a lot better if it could have been revealed a couple if weeks ago instead of that ridiculous detour that was taken with Nick & Phyllis deciding that Summer wasn’t ready to hear the truth & Phyllis’ cringe inducing flirting & seduction of Kyle. This had been the major story line of the season & all the momentum & suspense had been lost when the writers decided to take it down this tangent.

ITA- it was a really silly side story– just a tacky excuse to have Phyllis kiss Kyle. I remember when Jill and Jack made love up at the Abbott’s cabin when Jill was still married to John. Now that was a storyline- it took years for Jack to repair the damage to his relationship with his father for sleeping with his wife. But this thing with Kyle was just plain LAME—- thousands of different ways to keep the two of them apart– first and foremost–JUST TELL THEM THE TRUTH– I hate when soaps thrown in a stunt for fake drama-… Read more »

I suspect that the writer’s are setting the scene for another murder mystery. Carmine’s days are numbered in GC but who will be the killer? Michael, Lauren, Paul or maybe even Fen. This sex tape is just another motive. Maybe the redhead that Carmine slept with will be the killer? Michael would be the prime suspect & have to sit in the defence chair. Don’t be surprised if I’m right on this story line.

Michael has come off looking like a complete doofus in this storyline. His wife cheats on him FOR MONTHS and yet he never once demands she take a test to make sure she hasn’t contracted an STD as a result of her affair? No — he just gets mad for 10 minutes, then goes to off-camera marriage counseling (the first session they scheduled the same afternoon as their son’s graduation — seriously?) and defends her to their son who has the reaction her husband should be having to her infidelity.

Give me a break.

I really wish Michelle the best… and secretly hope since she left Y&R… that she comes to GH… however with this storyline… I wish the character Phyliss were not leaving. She is too pivotal to this story. She always knocks it out of the park and Peter will too!!! Joshua has been doing a very good job too and surprisingly so has Hunter! I am not loving the new Kyle… and didn’t like the old one… wish they would get the casting of the role right. They just don’t seem like Jack’s sons. Can’t wait to see Jack’s reaction and… Read more »

The only thing that will even remotely save this story is PB taking the reins and running with it the rest of it has been a snoozefest. I can only hope the DNA was not tampered with by poor Sharon as some have hinted that poor actress has had enough tearing down of her character. I do hope PB/Jack gets one hell of a scene putting Phyllis and Nick in their place those two have destroyed how many lives in between their video games and rolling in the sack. Glad to see and end to that couple.

It’s no use. The show will never be the same again. They take major opportunites to go in for the kill and blow it every single time. The paternity storyline of Summer was a diamond in the rough and they blew every single facet of it. I think the show is finally too far gone for revival. I am so done! But you are right to a certain degree. The show needs new blood to take over the writing. Someone who can think outside of the box without playing favorites and give us back the drama that used to leave… Read more »

Recast Phyllis, don’t care who as long as it isn’t one of JFP best friends! that never works..There is so much story that needs to be addressed concerning summers paternity.. Phyllis needs to be a part of that. Don’t let this be one of the dropped stories than never has an ending.. since they film 6 weeks ahead, recast Phyllis NOW!
Sony/CBS do you hear the fans????

Yes, they have done it again to Sharon Case. She admits to Cassie’s ghost that she did in fact change the paternity results. I am done. It is one big snooze fest and many more. They should have blown this out of the water! This could have been emmy material for the show itself. Summer should’ve belonged to Jack not NIck. It seems as though someone has a favoriite on this show. Case cannot get a break without dying off the show. She is way too good for this. They just won’t let up on her. She gets rotten leftover… Read more »
