‘The Young and the Restless’ hinting at a Nick Newman, Phyllis Summers, and Jack Abbott triangle

Recently, The Young and the Restless has been hinting at a possible Phyllis and Jack reunion. The exes spend a lot of time together as they adjust to Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Kyle Abbott’s (Michael Mealor) move to Italy. Phyllis and Jack’s closeness causes her enemy Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope), to use this to stir up more drama.

As previewed by Soaps.com, Sally tells Nick about Phyllis and Jack’s dinner dates. This leads to concern from Nick, who wonders if Phyllis still has feelings for Jack. When Nick decides to confront Phyllis, she reassures him that he’s the one she wants to be with. But is he?

Phyllis Summers’ history with Jack Abbott and Nick Newman

Phyllis has had plenty of suitors over the years, but Jack and Nick are her most popular pairings. In 2006, the love triangle between the characters hit a fever pitch. Phyllis was involved with Jack at the time she began to have an affair with a married Nick. The couple’s affair leads to Nick’s divorce from Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) and Phyllis’ relationship with Jack.

Things became more complicated when Phyllis learned she was pregnant but didn’t know who the dad was. A DNA test confirms Nick is the father; however, it was later discovered the test was inconclusive. A second test shows Jack is Summer’s father, but Sharon tampered with the results, and Nick was the biological dad.

Throughout the years, Phyllis would go back and forth between Nick and Jack. Although her marriages to both men ended, she remains on friendly terms with them. Currently, she and Nick are together, but it appears their reunion may be coming to an end.
