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 is now running it with Phyllis. The pair have once again become romantically involved.

At the ranch, Courtney and Noah chat with Ashley and Abby. Noah teases Abby that he feels bad for Tyler, whom she left on his own. Ashley tells Abby she's heading out - she wants to see somebody. In the living room, Sharon tells Victor that Nick ran out to the car. He lets her know he hasn't forgiven her even though he's being kind. He's tolerating her presence for Nick's sake. Sharon wants him to acknowledge that what she did was because of a bi-polar episode. Victor says he believes she's bad for Nick, but hopes he's wrong. Sharon insists she's working to get better. Noah and Courtney appear. Sharon wonders about Nick. Courtney and Noah go to look. Outside, Nick sees the Cassie lookalike and gasps. "Cassie?" She runs and he follows.
At her hotel, the Cassie lookalike hurriedly packs. She opens the door to leave and Nick's there. He says she looks like she's seen a ghost. He grills her about being on his family's property. She panics when she thinks he's calling the cops. He calls Sharon to apologize for leaving her and asks that Noah take her home. After, Nick demands to know who the Cassie doppelganger is, and why she looks like Cassie. She pretends not to know who Cassie is, and Nick explains. He wonders how she got past the ranch security and starts searching her room. She weakly protests that she'll call the cops. Nick finds photos of Cassie in her bag and wonders if she's still going to say it's a coincidence. He accuses her of haunting Sharon and calls her evil and twisted. She blurts, "It wasn't my idea!" Nick demands to know who wanted her to pretend to be Cassie.
At Sharon's house, Nick tells her he'll be proud to walk into the ranch with her tonight. Sharon's still wary. They reminisce a bit and flash to Cassie becoming Cassie Newman. Sharon agrees to attend the party.
The Abbotts arrive at the ranch with Billy bringing up the rear. Ashley runs interference when Victor tells Billy he isn't too bright. Billy cautiously greets Victoria, who says his being there will mean a lot to Tyler and Abby. Jack asks Victor for a club soda and they muse about the families coming together.

Noah comments on them making a statement and then Abby confronts Nick about bringing Sharon there. He defends his relationship. Victoria eyeballs Billy, and Nikki and Abby have a heartfelt chat about their mutual admiration. Victor gets everyone's attention and asks Ashley to make a toast. She talks about three families coming together to celebrate love and mentions how happy Brad and Colleen would be for Abby as well. Victoria goes outside and Billy follows. They kiss and Victoria takes off for home. Inside, Victor makes a more practical speech about marriage involving respect and forgiveness. He wishes Abby and Tyler all the happiness in the world. Summer chats with Traci about working at Jabot. Traci urges her to travel and meet new friends - Phyllis wouldn't want her to put her life on hold.

Victor grunts, "Okay son," before moving on to argue with Jack about Bonaventure. Nikki claps for everyone to get cake. Someone watches through the window. When Nick runs out to the car, Victor ends up alone with Sharon. Outside, Nick comes face-to-face with Cassie's lookalike.
