Quote Damsel29:Quote go2girl:Quote laurie6:Quote marshal: Summer is the demon seed that was created unwanted by Nick and how he and her mother cheated on another married woman. Wonder if this stunned girl know how her brother Daniel was created. :D
Summer was very much wanted by Nick, That is why he lied for 18 years just to keep her. She may have been conceived by an affair but so was Faith maybe she should know how she came to be as well. Even Noah was created from a lie Sharon told and forced on Nick, Nick didn't want him and wanted Sharon to abort him I wonder if he knows that.
I understand what you are saying about Summer but it is a rather large insult that Nick was so selfish about his own feelings re: Cassie's death that he'd claim a bastard child (Summer) to ease his pain over Cassie. And Faith is the prophecy child that Cassie herself predicted AND the karma that Phyllis got for homewrecking in the first place.
Sadly, again, this is a watered down and rewritten version of the original story. I really think that it is only fair to remind everyone of that.
Nick and Phyllis were desperate to be together. There were so in love that Nick wanted nothing more than Summer and Phyllis. Until MAB came along and tried to destroy how they were created and why, Phick and Summer were not what you are reading by the many writers who have come since their inception.
Faith was the result of an affair that was premised on the fact that MAB wanted to use the so called "prophecy" that really wasn't a prophecy at all to try and reunite Shick in favor of destroying Phick. What she tried for years to do, not only destroyed Phick but it finished Shick and it left the child Faith, a writers mistake, as I have seen it mentioned and I do think that I can agree with this, hanging out there with very little of a mother because she wanted Adam much more than this child and a father, who, loved Phyllis, even then and still probably does.
Now, again, we see ourselves confronted with yet another bunch of writers, who, like MAB, want to try and capture the "history" and just like MAB they are screwing it up even more horrible that she did.
Shick is dead and no amount of revival is going to change that fact and as for Faith? She should have never been written as a prophecy or anything else. It was a cruel story both to the child and the adultry of Shick and now, as we see, she is turning out maladjusted, misfitted and strange.
Summer has had her life ruined by Sharon and as Sharon took her mother and father from her, we see Summer suffering and distracted by the fact that the life she was raised to know was a lie, if and until Sharon can make that right, instead of trying to relive her own past that is just dead from all of the things that she has done to her life and everyone else's since then.
Summer was very much wanted by Nick and Phyllis. They adored her and she was not, in any way, written to fill the void of the death of Cassie. MAB misconstrued that for her own vengence against the writer who came before her and created Phick. Faith, on the other hand, was ill conceived and misfitted from the very start and should have never been written. So here she is, a bad seed and getting worse, again, because this set of writers simply don't have a clue.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...can I get the cliff notes?
