Although Nick Newman grew up starving for the affection of his father Victor, he was very close to his stepfather Jack. At ten years old, Nick went away to spend six years in a Switzerland boarding school and wasn't seen again until his sixteen birthday.
Being a teenage boy, Nick had girls on the mind! Although he dated Amy Wilson, Nick set his sights on Amy's friend Sharon Collins who was involved with Nick's rival Matt Clark. After Sharon eventually left Matt for Nick, Matt sought revenge by beating the heck out of Nick and raping Sharon! Hoping that he would destroy Nick and Sharon for good, Matt told Nick that Sharon had given up her child for adoption, but Nick and Sharon remained intact. However, after Sharon confessed that Matt had raped her, Nick went to confront Matt and found him dead on his floor! Nick was convicted of murder and sentenced to fifteen years in jail, but was later exonerated after Amy Wilson came forward and admitted to shooting Matt after he had raped her.
Against his mother's wishes, Nick and Sharon married and had a son Noah. Although the two had a happy marriage, Nick came home drunk one night and slept with Sharon's friend Grace Turner thinking she was his wife! Grace assured Nick that his infidelity would remain a secret. A year later, Grace came to Sharon and Nick with the news that she found Sharon's long lost daughter. Though Nick had a hard time accepting Cassie at first, he soon welcomed her as his own.
Nick later went on to cheat on Sharon again with Grace, but this time his wife found out and took the kids and left! It wasn't until Cassie's adoptive mother wanted her back that Nick and Sharon reconciled to win custody of Cassie. Determined to make their marriage work, Nick took on an executive job at Newman and he and Sharon bought the Crimson Lights Coffeehouse, the place where they fell in love.
Nick challenged his father unlike anyone else after turning the great Victor Newman into the Feds for sabotaging Jabot's comeback campaign! Victor was sentenced to community service and Nick's relationship with his father was badly damaged. However, when Victor asked Nick to travel with him to his father's deathbed, Nick realized what his father had gone through and understood why he felt the need to fight so fiercely for everything he owned! Little by little, the two repaired their relationship and Victor made Nick CEO of Newman.
Throughout the years, Nick and Sharon's marriage survived numerous affairs, a miscarriage, family illnesses, kidnappings and near death experiences, but their love became truly tested with the death of their daughter Cassie. Now a teenager, Cassie became smitten with sixteen year old Daniel Romalotti. After lying to Nick and Sharon, Cassie went to a party and found a drunken Daniel passed out in the backseat of his car. Wanting to help him, Cassie took his keys and attempted to drive home. Her inexperience behind the wheel caused her to wreck and she later died as a result from the accident.
Nick was devastated and became withdrawn from Sharon and obsessed with making Daniel pay for Cassie's mistake. In the end, Nick came forward with evidence that proved that Daniel was innocent. With his marriage on the rocks, Nick began a passionate affair with Daniel's mother Phyllis Abbott. Soon Nick and Sharon separated, then found their marriage over after Phyllis became pregnant. When Phyllis expressed to Nick that she wasn't sure if the baby was his or Jack's, a paternity test was administered but Nick was the only one to view the results and then claimed that he was the father! Although Nick found himself scared to the bone when Sharon was kidnapped after getting drawn into Brad Carlton's past, she ended up okay and the two divorced.
Not wasting any time, wanting to avoid the six-month waiting period, Nick and Phyllis flew to Mexico and got married! Shortly after, the couple gave birth to a little girl named Summer. While Nick appears to have it all, little did he know, there was an impostor out there with Phyllis' face! His new bride and his daughter were kidnapped by Shelia Carter and Nick's had to fight with all he had to get them back!
Since then, Nick has survived the Clear Springs debacle and the coma of his sister, Victoria. He had a falling out with his father, Victor, and left Newman Enterprises, however. Deciding to start fresh on his own, he began a partnership with Jack Abbott and their wives, and started up a fashion magazine called Restless Style. The partnership deteriorated over time, and Nick bought out Jack's share. Recently, Nick made the decision to also go back to work at Newman as Victor has disappeared from town, while he is mourning the death of his wife.
Nick briefly went back to his ex, Sharon after they made love in the Abbott cabin, but then went back with Phyllis. He and Sharon conceived a baby, which Ashley believed was hers after Adam pulled a fast one. Nick and Sharon believed their child died. A crisis with Summer pulled Phyllis and Nick back together. Adam's deception was revealed and Nick and Sharon took custody of their daughter, Faith, from Ashley. Phyllis and Nick's marriage didn't survive because she got tired of him trying to look out for Sharon.
Nick joined his sisters in suing Victor and they won a big settlement. Nick repurchased Restless Style from Billy Abbott and ran it with Phyllis. Soon, the pair become romantically involved.
After Diane was killed, Nick began getting calls from an unknown number, playing back a recording of Nick threatening to kill Diane on her voicemail. He changed his number but still got the calls. He suspected Adam.
Nick found out that Phyllis and Avery Clark were sisters and tried to get them to spend time together. Eventually, Nick and Avery grew close and Phyllis cheated on Nick with Ronan. For a while, Nick bounced back and forth between Phyllis and Avery.
Nick sold Restless Style back to Billy and returned to Newman Enterprises, but after Nick beat up Deacon for getting Nikki drunk and marrying her, Adam was named CEO instead. Nick then quit when Victor was set to marry his ex-wife Sharon and went to work for Tucker instead. Nick returned to Newman after Victor and Sharon separated.
Nick and a pregnant Phyllis planned to get married, with Avery as maid of honor. When Phyllis lost the baby on their wedding day after arguing with Daisy, Nick wed her in a private ceremony the next day instead. Still, Nick left Phyllis when it was revealed she had run down Christine and Paul back in 1994, but he returned at Summer's insistence. But when Ronan admitted his love for Phyllis, Nick moved back to the ranch with Summer.
After Victor went missing, Sharon fired Nick from Newman. Victoria and Nick proved in court that Sharon was mentally unstable, and Nick was rehired. When Victor was declared dead, Phyllis consoled Nick, but when Phyllis' case about running down Christine and Paul was dismissed, Nick filed for divorce and turned to Avery.
Jack helped Adam take over Newman, and Nick was fired again. Unwilling to fight for the company anymore, Avery encouraged Nick to buy a bar and he opened The Underground, intending to run it with Noah. He hired war vet Dylan McAvoy, who ended up being Avery's long lost love. Still, Avery assured Nick he was the one for her. They got engaged, and she worked hard to convince Nick she was over Dylan.
Nick learned Summer and Kyle were moving toward intimacy and it was revealed Summer's paternity was in question. Sharon switched the new results, so that although Nick really was Summer's father, everyone believed Jack was. Phyllis, Jack, Nick and Summer were all devastated.
Nick and Avery found Phyllis unconscious at the bottom of a stairwell at an MS gala. She was in a coma and Nick convinced Avery and Summer to let Daniel take her to a facility in Atlanta.
Nick and Avery moved forward with their wedding plans while Sharon worked to get close to Nick, using Faith to play on his emotions. When Avery did not show up at her own wedding because she was helping Dylan, Nick broke up with her. Sharon admitted her feelings to Nick, but he told her he wasn't interested.
When Nick learned that Dylan was his long-lost brother they got into a fight, which pushed Nick closer to Sharon and they became romantic again. Then, Nick and Dylan teamed up to protect their mother Nikki when Ian Ward, the cult leader who fathered Dylan, came to town. Their mutual goal made them grow close.
Sharon confided in Nick that she was seeing visions of their dead daughter Cassie and got electro-convulsive therapy to stop the mental torment. The treatment wiped away Sharon's memory that Nick was Summer's true father, her role in Phyllis' injury, and that she had switched the paternity results. Nick told Sharon he was in love with her and moved back in.
Nick caught the Cassie lookalike and found out Victor had hired her to torture Sharon. Nick explained the truth to Sharon and confronted Victor. Victor told them Sharon was hiding a secret that would harm Nick, but Nick was adamant he loved Sharon no matter what.

In her room at the club, Nick tries to talk Sage out of going to the party. She's insistent. Downstairs, Victor orders Tobias to leave. Ashley reminds him that she threatened to have him arrested. Tobias nonchalantly grabs a drink. Yack informs him they don't need any spies. Tobias threatens to tell the guests all of Victor's secrets. When he's commanded to leave, Tobias jumps on the bar and rants about them being 'rich, entitled, monsters'. Ashley declares that he's useless. Neil drags him off the bar and then bickers with Billy, who just wants to dump the interloper in a car. After Billy drags him out, Jack thanks him. Nikki sneaks drinks. Kyle and Summer admit to Yack and Phyllis that they caught Tobias spying on them at Crimson Lights. Abby looks uncomfortable as they discuss this. When her friends approach her, they discuss whether or not Tobias has something to do with the killer. Yack glares over at them. Meanwhile, Victoria and Billy talk about how nice it is to work together again. She spots her brother and Sage walking in. Nick introduces her to his parents. Noah arrives in time to hear the latest mention of the baby. They fill him in and toast. Nikki announces that she doesn't drink and heads off to powder her nose. She bumps into Dylan on the way and starts complaining to him about how her sons are saddling themselves with awful women. Sharon pops up, who refuses to argue on the anniversary of Cassie's death. She advises Nikki not to antagonize Sage while she's pregnant. Nikki accuses her of taking advantage of the family and strides off. Across the room, Sage assures Victor that she's not a gold digger. She walked out on Gabriel's money and she's confident that Nick will be a good father. Sirens start to ring. Lily comes in and says there has been an accident involving a party guest. It was Tobias. Kyle, Abby and Summer decide to run over to the hospital to see if he's doped up enough to spill the truth. Nikki returns. Victor wonders if she's been drinking and she starts slurring her insults of the mustache. She complains about how dirty she feels for following Victor's orders and blames him for driving Tobias over the edge. She storms out and heads to the roof. Neil trails after and finds her getting plastered with some dude. She teases Neil about walking into the party with his son's ex. Neil takes her aside and she tells him that Victor is not winning tonight, she is. Neil asks the dude to step off and gets threatening. Meanwhile, Nick brings Sage back to her room. He advises her to 'duck and cover' when it comes to his dad. They make out. Back downstairs, Phyllis notices that Yack has gone missing. By the bar, Billy and Victoria discuss the pregnancy and start brainstorming their new project. When they stroll upstairs, they catch Neil punching the guy who was with Nikki.
Nick visits Cassie's grave with flowers. He tells her that she will be getting a brother or sister. Sharon arrives, but offers to leave until he's done. He's sure their daughter would like it if they visit her together. Dylan watches from a distance for a moment as they talk about the day they lost her. They'll always hold Cassie in their hearts.
At the club, Lily fusses and Phyllis hopes that no one strangles anyone else today. Lily spots Hilary and Devon strolling in. She starts lecturing them. They decide to leave. When Lily brings up Rose, Hilary nearly clobbers her. Devon holds her back. He hopes that everyone will come to accept his relationship. Lily thinks he's delusional. Later, Victor stands by the entrance to greet guests. Yack is perplexed to see him fawning over Ben. Victor strolls over to his daughter. She's still miffed about his promoting Gabriel. He advises her to get along with him. Across the room, Phyllis and Nikki worry about Jack. Nikki's children join them. Before Nick can announce his news, they spot Neil walking in with Gwen and their jaws drop. Lily wonders what her father is up to. He tells her that he actually likes Gwen. Hilary approaches Gwen and warns her that Neil has been acting out. Gwen doubts she sincerely gives a damn and tells Devon and Hilary that they disgust her. Neil gets between them all and Gwen decides it's time for her to go. Meanwhile, Ben and Ashley have an awkward conversation. She admits that she developed feelings for him. That doesn't make sense to the doctor. Ash asks him not to say anything to Abby. When he returns to Abby's side, he awkwardly glosses over what Ash said and then makes an excuse to leave. Back across the room, Nick tells his family that he and Sage are having a baby. "It's a blessing," he insists. Sharon arrives with Dylan. When she wanders off, his mom approaches him and suggests that he doesn't need to be spending time with Sharon anymore. He informs her that things are over with Avery and he's with Sharon now. That doesn't go over well. He walks off to see Sharon. Nikki grabs a drink. As someone spies on the guests, Yack calls everyone together to talk about the merger of the families. He reminds everyone that it's the anniversary of Cassie's death and announces that he is funding a pediatric wing dedicated to her. Nick and Sharon thank him. The watcher creeps out and straight over to Victor. "You should not be here," Victor says.
