Nick, Summer, and Cassie question

Postby savytabby » Tue Mar 18, 2014 10:35 pm

Does Summer know that Cassie is/was Nick's adopted daughter, that he wasn't her biological father? I think that would be an interesting angle to the story, that Summer's life was upended twice -- once when Nick didn't tell the truth 18 years ago and again when Sharon (allegedly) changed the results -- because he couldn't cope with the death of a child that wasn't biologically his and yet she, his biological daughter, has lived her whole life in Cassie's shadow. I mean, let's face it -- even Nick more or less said she was a replacement for Cassie. Please understand I'm not saying Nick shouldn't grieve/mourn/miss Cassie because I know he was her father in every way that counted and he did adopt her, I'm just not sure if it's ever been established with Summer that Nick had adopted Cassie and wonder if that would make a difference to her.

I never thought about this. I am not so sure she knows. Nick talks about Cassie as if she were his. I don't remember him ever speaking of her adoption.

When you adopt, you usually drop all that kind of talk, so they feel part of the family... I think Summer knows... but Cassie was a Newman all the way. Which makes this behavior from Victor so weird. My problem is, how is Cassie and Summer going to relate? Summer is still supposed to be around 10... so this is weird to me... and maybe to some that have watched for over 30 years...

Good points. But many adoptive parents do tell their kids they are adopted. Some parents even encourage their kids to find their biological parents.

We are supposed to put our brains on hold and just go with whatever the writers write, not question a darn thing.

That sad thing about all this is cassie look alike is about the same age summer is.if this is to be cassie she would be in her thirties but she looks the same age as summer and Noah.so this s.l is way off.so many years so many believe that summer was jacks then they went there only to go back and say Sharon changed the test so summer is really nick.they bring on this cassie look alike to drive ShAron crazy.if they are going to make summer nicks then why go there from the get go .Why waste our time all these months.if they really do go there and make summer nicks after all this not sure how much loyal viwer I can be.I know one person can't make a difference but at this rate they need to end the show.
