Quote Ebybrowempoly: nick 4 years knew that there was a chance that summer could be jacks. that there alone is worst than what adam did. he thought only of himself and what he wanted.alot like his father.he does as he wants to get what he wants. did he think that summer was never going to grow up and never fall in love. he didnt think of anyone but himself. he didnt think of noah his blood son.what could happen if it ever came to light. no matter what the reason nick was wrong. nick should have told phyllis annd they could have had the test again. the thing is .he said he couldnt lose another daughter.so was nick living a lie with phyllis .did he really love phyllis or was it to be near summer.
It was Summer. He surely was appreciative to Phyllis for everything (especially all the sex) but he never truly was in love with her and she knew that, which is why she was always sooooo insecure. And proof of the "Summer factor" is the way Phyllis so easily used her to hold on to Nick time and again.
