A nightmare.

In this week’s “The Young And The Restless” Throwback Thursday Soaps.com takes readers back to 1979 when Nikki Reed killed her father Nick Reed…

These days, Ian Ward is doing his best to make Nikki’s life a living hell. Years ago, Nikki’s life was in shambles as well and she was forced to do the unthinkable to save herself at the hands of her repulsive father. Nikki lived with her mom and sister Casey, who kept the family afloat by working at a clinic while attending medical school. It wasn’t until their mother died when things really went south.

Nikki and Casey’s father Nick returned to Genoa City. Casey knew firsthand that Nick wasn’t only a drunk but a rapist, having sexually abused her as a child. Nikki hadn’t been aware of any of this and adored Nick, who was warned by Casey to stay away from Nikki. One night, Casey and Brock Reynolds returned to her apartment and found a horrible scene. Nick was bloodied up and lying on top of Nikki. She explained how Nick had tried to rape her, which forced Nikki to hit him over the head with a table lamp. Nick soon died from his head injury.
