Quote Kimmd: If the rumors about Sharon are true, and I think they are,let this be a lesson to us. If Phick fans are smart,(so far they have been) leave Faith alone. If the writers want to go there they will, don't try to force the issue.
I'm sorry but the writers are finishing a story THEY started when Summer was conceived and her paternity was left in question. It has nothing
to do with pressure being put on them by a fanbase to write a particular story. ~) JM has said in interviews that he always thought Summer was Jack's.
JG was creative consultant in 2006 when Summer was named Nick's daughter he was head writer/executive producer in 2008, if this were his story and his intentions why didn't he do it then? It just doesn't make any sense to say this was always the intentions it does make sense to say that this was always a possibility, just like there's always a possibility they will change Faith's paternity or there's always a chance that Dru will climb back up that cliff.
This is JG bio as far as work goes on Y&R
Breakdown Writer: July 13, 2006 - October 2006
Creative Consultant: July 7, 2006 - September 2006
Co-Executive Producer: October 2006 - January 28, 2008**
Head writer: December 26, 2007 - April 21, 2008; October 12, 2012 – Present
Executive Producer: January 29, 2008 - October 2, 2008
He was a CO-EP which means decisions are unanimous not unilateral as they were under MAB when she was both.
He was only EP and HW for a few months ( January to April ) IMO, he didn't change the story then because it was not the time.
I am basing MY opinion on what I saw on screen. An open ended paternity story. Only Nick saw those results. He didn't look happy and left town for a few days. Who does that? It all falls into place with how this is being told now. If it was so clear in the first place that he was Summer's father, then why did SO MANY people think he was lying?
Sorry but fanbases complain all the time and TPTB can't/ won't keep one happy over another. It's all about storytelling with the writers.
