Summer Newman is the daughter of Phyllis Summers and Nick Newman. She was conceived when Nick and Phyllis had an affair following Cassie's death. Phyllis wasn't sure if she was Nick's or Jack's so a paternity test was taken. Nick was the only one to see the results that confirmed she was his. Jack delivered Summer while trapped in the Newman elevator with Phyllis. As a child, Summer went into a coma after Patty Williams intentionally kissed her after eating a peanut butter cookie. Phyllis and Nick blamed Victor, who had brought Patty back to town posing as Dr. Emily Peterson for revenge on Jack. Summer had to undergo speech therapy following the coma.
As a teenager, Summer was vocal about her embarrassing family, and became angry and rebellious after her mother was charged in the old hit-and-run attempted murder case and she caught her fooling around with Ronan. Summer moved in with Nick, who had also left Phyllis, and took a baseball bat to Ronan's car. While driving when upset, Summer caused an accident that caused Adam's wife Chelsea to miscarry. Summer shared a kiss with Fen Baldwin, and involved him in a scheme against Ronan that included bullying the boy Ronan is mentoring, Jamie. While still estranged from Phyllis, Summer turned to Avery, who was seeing Nick, and who talked her out of pursuing emancipation. In the meantime, Summer had apologized to Jamie and had come to like him, which set Fen off and caused him to escalate the bullying until Jamie nearly killed himself.
Summer developed a crush on Kyle, which caused Nick to start acting strange. It turns out he hadn't confirmed his paternity of Summer way back when and worried that she might be Jack's daughter, and therefore, Kyle's sister. He did a new DNA test, which came back showing that Nick was not her father. He told a furious Phyllis, and they assumed that Jack was her dad. Unbeknownst to them, Sharon had tampered with the DNA results. Eventually, Nick told Summer that he was not her father, and that Kyle, her crush, was her half-brother. Believing Jack to be her father, and her whole life to be a lie, Summer became depressed. She had to deal with Jack and Victor fighting about who her family is, and all that on top of Phyllis being in coma since she fell down the stairs at the gala. Summer was given back Phyllis' effects from the stairwell, among them Sharon's lipstick, but no one figured out that Sharon and Phyllis were fighting when she fell.
After dealing with Fen being in jail, believing that her best friend, Courtney, was a drug dealer, and the continued struggle of missing her comatose mother, Summer gave in to the lure of energy pills on a modeling shoot and ended up in the hospital with heart failure, but recovered fully. Summer next became involved with a man called John Darwin, a life coach, who later was revealed to be Ian Ward, the cult leader who had taken advantage of Nikki when she was young. The next revelation was that Courtney was an undercover cop the entire time she and Summer were high school buddies.
Summer, still looking for a place in the world, decided to try being a production assistant on the set for her Aunt Avery's cooking show, and bonded with the cute cameraman, Austin, over the loss of their mothers from their lives. Summer wanted to lose her virginity to Austin, but he alluded to having come to town for one reason only - it turned out he was stalking Avery, whom he blamed for his mother's death. After kidnapping Avery in hopes of convincing her to give a videotaped confession to having wrongly freed the man who killed his mother, Austin ended up in a shoot out, which saw Paul Williams shot and Austin grazed with a bullet while escaping. Summer went on the run with Austin and finally made love with him. Her first time was in a motel near the Canadian border. It wasn't long before the cops found Summer and brought her back to Genoa City. Austin then turned himself in. Summer advocated on his behalf, begging Avery to understand he was just mourning his mother and to help him. Avery enlisted Leslie's help and Summer got Austin out on bail. She then decided they should get married so she couldn't be forced to testify against him. Jack was livid upon finding out about the marriage and announced he would try to have it dissolved in court.
