‘The Young and the Restless’ hints at splitsville for Nick Newman and Phyllis Summers

Nick and Phyllis’ reunion started hot and heavy, but it’s starting to fizzle. The couple’s been experiencing problems in recent weeks. One of their issues is Phyllis’ close relationship with her ex-husband Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman). After Nick confronts Phyllis about Jack, she reassures Nick he’s the man she loves.

Another issue plaguing the couple is Nick’s estranged relationship with Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle). Nick’s been in a sullen mood over the situation, and despite Phyllis’ best attempts to cheer him, Nick shuts her out. All signs point to a split between Nick and Phyllis, and it appears it may be happening sooner rather than later.

A new promo for The Young and the Restless shows Phyllis telling Nick she needs “space.” Later Nick is talking with Noah Newman (Rory Gibson) about rocky past with Phyllis and how history’s repeating itself.
