* Resides at the tackhouse with Nick.
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 has 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 has yet figured out that Sharon and Phyllis were fighting when she fell. Summer is currently perusing the idea of moving to Los Angeles to model.

At Jabot, Nick tells Jack about Summer being taken in by a life coach. She arrives. They fill Jack in on Ian Ward. Summer says she's done with looking to others to decide her life. Nick and Jack advise her to talk to Nikki. Once alone, Jack cancels his appointments.
At the ranch, Nikki and Dylan pat each other on the back for standing up to Ian Ward. Victor appears and complains he heard about their busy day secondhand. Dylan says Nikki helped Summer and that Ian is his father only by blood. Once alone, Victor complains to Nikki about the secrets in their marriage. They agree they love each other and want trust. Nick and Summer arrive. Victor reassures Summer before leaving. Summer tells Nikki she wants to confront Ward, but Nikki and Nick encourage her to vent her anger there instead. Summer pretends to confront Ian. Nikki is proud.
In the Ian's office, Nikki asks Summer if she's okay. She tells Summer that Ward is not the man he says he is. Summer says he's helping her find her path. Nikki tells her he's a con man and a criminal who preys on young girls. Ward says it's all a misunderstanding. Nikki insists Summer leave. She goes, but here's Nikki say she brought the money. Ward looks in the bag and complains that it's not $5 million. Nikki says she must have misunderstood - she brought $1 million. He swears he hasn't touched Summer, but if he doesn't get the rest of his money it may not stay that way. Nikki says the rest of the cash is in her car. They bicker about the past. She warns him Paul is the police chief now. Nikki wants him to leave Summer alone, and to admit the truth of what he did to her. Ian says it pains him to see her paint herself as a victim. She implores him to say what he did. Ward skirts around it. They are about to go to her car when Dylan and Nick appear. Nikki assures them Summer is fine. Nick takes Nikki out and Dylan faces Ian, who remarks on the mother/son bond. Dylan gets in his face about the women he's taken advantage of and warns he won't walk out that door to do it again. Ian pleads, "Don't kill me, Dylan, or you'll never know."
At the station, Paul tells Kevin that Chloe's arrest has nothing to do with Chelsea - it's a Federal matter. Summer arrives and tells Paul about Nikki paying off this man she met. Meanwhile, Kevin tells Michael that this is a misunderstanding - Chelsea wanted Chloe to take Connor out of the country. Chloe says it's not true.
At the ranch, Nikki worries to Nick about Dylan. Nick thinks he might rearrange Ian's face. Summer arrives and says she told Paul. Summer feels stupid for being taken in. Nikki tells her he's Dylan's father - it's time she knew the truth.
