Quote shademorgis: Sharon wouldn't have to be making ANY decisions regarding Nick if he had never cheated on her with Phyllis. Therefore this is mostly Nicks fault. And Phyllis needs to quit whining because she should never have made herself available to a married man. Neither should Sharon because 2 wrongs do not make a right but this all started because of Nick cheating with Phyllis in the first place.
This whole tragedy of TWO WRONG AFFAIRS happened because a "boy" in a grown man's body acted like 16 yearold boy because he couldn't handle his guilt over his daughter's death. He ran away from his problems and ran to another woman instead of staying with his family and being a MAN. Before the affair he wouldn't open up(guilt &shame)to his wife.He kept pushing her away and NOT being there for Sharon & Noah. What Sharon did was WRONG she should never have lied to Nick. But GOD is giving Nick a second chance to be there for his family but, he is going to be there this time for Phyllis instead of Sharon. This will only reinforce in Nick's mind that he was wrong before. I think when everything comes "out" that we will be suprised NOT at Nick's reaction of why he was decieved but of PHYLLIS's reaction by this whole scenario. If Phyllis has really changed(some think she has)will she be understanding toward Sharon and show empathy? We shall see.
I agree with you to a point. Yes Nick was running away for remember he was angry with Daniel and I think that is because he couldn't accept the truth. Or why hid the clothes in the first place.
But he should be there for Sharon now? Hello for so much has happened in his life after Cassie death. He has another family and Phyllis so desperately need him when she sees her daughter fighting for her life.
But that shouldn't mean that he should forget about Noah for right now he doesn't know that there is anyone else but Noah and Summer as his children. I mean alive.
Because this goes back to being Sharon fault for she thinks that it is so easy to lie about the paternity. That maybe she is making him being there for Phyllis also because he wasn't there for her. But is that was the right thing to do. No for how can it be when she had still lied to Nick and Jack. I mean truly Nick doesn't want another man taking care of his child without even knowing the truth that it was his.
And Phyllis should be understanding? Well let see in Phyllis mind Nick being there is more than he loves Sharon than he loves being a father to Noah. Of course he might love being Noah father but that time at the cabin when Noah was supposedly there. And they went to search for Noah. Sharon got upset and Noah went to Nick house and had sex with his girlfriend while Nick has sex with Sharon. I mean he couldn't make up his mind and Phyllis desperatrly try to keep Nick. In Phyllis mind it goes a lot more than just being Noah father.
