* 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 Sharon's place, she soothes Summer, who is upset about Phyllis. Summer complains that Nick was taken away from her at the same time. Sharon says she's sorry. She offers to help Summer finesse things between her and Nick. Summer asks what exactly is going on between them. Sharon says they're friends and gives Summer advice about life. Summer encounters Neil as she leaves. He assures her the photographer was fired. Summer goes. Neil offers Sharon a job as a model mentor. Sharon accepts.
At Crimson Lights, Avery gives Leslie a play-by-play of Nikki's secret coming out. She's worried about Dylan. Leslie thinks Avery can support him, but Avery believes he feels betrayed by her. Talk turns to Leslie's relationship. She admits to feeling overwhelmed at Thanksgiving. They talk about everyone having something to handle. Dylan arrives. Avery joins him for a walk. Inside, Courtney tells Summer about her private party with Noah. Summer realizes they slept together. Summer reads a text on Courtney's phone while she's getting a refill. When Courtney returns, she asks who Zach is, and if Noah knows about him. Courtney defensively says he's a guy from work and leaves. Neil arrives on the patio with flowers for Leslie. "I love you."
Nick runs into Summer at the Club. It's awkward. He's sorry she had a crummy Thanksgiving. She's baffled to hear he spent it with Sharon and the kids. They sit down. "Dylan... it's almost as bad as having Adam for a brother," she muses. "It's close," says Nick. This entire situation is eerily familiar to Summer. Sharon stands at the bar and pretends not to eavesdrop until Summer notices her. They call her over and plan Summer's next playdate with Faith.
Summer is at Sharon's. They wait for Faith to come home. Summer recalls painting her nails with her mom. "I really miss her," she says. Tearing up, she talks about sitting by her mother's bedside. It makes her want to scream but there's no one for her to blame. Sharon looks away and then gives her a hug. "I'm sorry," she says.
