The Young and the Restless is the number one rated daytime drama because of its storylines, and the possibility that Jack Abbott may be the biological father of Summer Newman is the latest one to shake Genoa City to its core.

Joshua Morrow, who stars as Nick Newman on the CBS drama, spoke to TV Guide about the planned paternity switch. In an article published on May 17, Morrow shared his thoughts on his character knowingly raising a child that isn't his. Summer (Hunter King), has always been thought to be his child with ex-wife Phyllis (Michelle Stafford), but Nick has been dropping hints that he may have prevented Phyllis' ex-husband and current boyfriend from being a father to his child by altering the paternity test.

"It really worried me when I heard they were taking my character in a direction that was potentially evil. Nick takes being a father very seriously. It means the world to him," Morrow said. "How could he deny another man the right to parent his own child?"

Morrow said that he expressed his concerns to executives of Y&R, saying he did not want his character to be ruined beyond repair. He was assured by head writer Josh Griffith and executive producer Jill Phelps that the story would be told in a way that not completely compromise the Newman heir. Morrow shared that the death of his character's daughter, Cassie, may have been a motivating factor.

"He was so distraught about the death of his daughter Cassie that when the paternity test for Summer came back corrupted and inconclusive - something he shared with no one - he just couldn't bear the thought of losing Summer, too," he said.

Summer was born on screen in Dec. 26 and was delivered by Jack (Peter Bergman) after Phyllis went into labor in an elevator. She has since been aged to a feisty teenager who has developed a crush on Kyle Abbott, Jack's son. The attraction has made Nick furious and is one of the reasons why Summer's paternity is being revisited.

"He's freaking out because there's a good likelihood that Summer and Kyle are brother and sister. He's gone flippin' crazy over it, beating his chest, threatening Kyle, grounding Summer. People don't know what to think," Morrow said.

Morrow hoped that fans would ultimately understand that Nick simply needed another daughter to raise after the loss of Cassie. Morrow said the character kept the truth to himself to preserve his sanity. However, he already that his character's ex-wife would not appreciate being lied to. He joked that there would be carnage once Phyllis found out the truth.

"But no matter how it turns out, Phyllis will be furious. Hell hath no fury like the Red Tornado in an uproar," he joked.
