Very interesting!! Since you have watched from the beginning, Mmsfoxxie, you said yesterday that this was re-writing history with Nikki. I noticed many of the comments on your link agreed with you, saying Nikki has been on since she was a teen and there was never a mystery pregnancy. But this is the world of soaps, lol.....

So do you think Paul is the father and Dylan is their son, as others on that site speculated?

Since I don't have lots of Y & R history to fall back on I am probably totally off on this - but could the son be Cane?

The last few days here we have been talking lots about the relatively new producer at Y & R - a woman named Jill Phelps. She is very close to Steve Burton who plays Dylan - they worked together at GH. I saw other comments on your link guessing that if it is Dylan then maybe the producer is doing it to beef up his role.

Thanks for finding this in the first place!! And for posting it!

monetfan, during the 70s, I worked most of the time and there were no vcrs then, so I missed a lot. In 1978, I became a stay at home mom. Nikki's character first came about in, I believe, 1975 so I only saw her beginnings occasionally. During the era of Youtube, I've watched old episodes but not all. I have an overall background of her character, especially she and Paul. NEVER was it said that she had a baby and gave it away or a baby was stolen from her, etc. There was a baby between she and Jack that died. So this is why it appears that the writers have decided to rewrite history....IF this rumored sl turns out to be true.

When Nikki was a teen, she was raped by either her father or stepfather (can't remember). I believe when he came back into her life and she killed him. So other than her father and Paul, I don't know of any sl that would have produced a baby before Victor came into the picture. This is my memory anyway.

Regarding Dylan: for some reason, I would think he's too old to be her child but maybe not. His father just died and I don't recall him saying he was adopted.

Thanks so much for that, I sure didn't see that coming, can't wait to see this happen, Dylan is the right age.

I too have been watching since the show began and doubt I missed more than 5 shows ever! No way was Nikki pregnant other than what we all know about today, so indeed this is an embellishment by the writers. That would help Paul get over the loss of his other son...in the land of soap operas, anything is possible!

Mmsfoxxie - Thanks for all of that Y & R history!

(about VCRs, etc., lol - after three years of marriage, my husband and I got our first VCR in 1981 - hard to imagine how we survived without a way to record something before that! That's when I was able to start watching "All My Children" on a daily basis. Had heard people at work talk about AMC and Erica Kane, etc. for a year or two, so I knew the characters and basic plots - but how nice it was to see AMC each day - not just on vacations or on other days off! I stopped working later in the 1980s when I became a mom, so then I could watch AMC in "realtime!")

If it is Dylan, that will be a real shock to him - he was always talking so affectionately about his "Pops." Seems strange Pops and Dylan's mom would not have told him he was adopted.

Update to the above info: The guy that played Nikki's fateh /stepfather that she killed came info the cast as one of Katherine's husband a few years later. This is rare that a person comes into a soap playing a totally different role. At least, I don't recall seeing it happen.

S P O I L E R A L E R T!!

This tells who's going to be at the memorial for Katherine.

Paul gets a letter just as Nikki does. Could this mean that Paul is the father of Dylan? WOW!!

I watch on TVGN so have not seen the show yet today. Have to say that will be an amazing new storyline if Dylan does turn out to be Nicki's son. I guess Dylan would be in the same age bracket as Nick and Adam so guess that would not make it out of the question.

On a different YR subject, anyone else wondering why Phillip and Mackenzie have not or will not show up for Mrs. C's memorial.

Probably just a matter of them not being available and/or the show choosing to not mention them. Somewhere I read that Phillip begs to be included and they told him no. Strange. No mention of chance either.

Well, Mmsfoxxie, you have become our resident " Y & R Gossip Maven!!" Two big stories! You are on a roll - congrats!Smile

Thanks so much - I love to know what is around the corner!

Now, for your next spoiler coup. if you could just find out more about this Rose storyline..... lol!!

I was curious how old Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) - and Steve Burton(Dylan) are - MTS was born in 1956 so she is/or will be 57. SB was born in 1970 so he is/or will be 43. Just 14 years separates them. But to make the story plausible - if, indeed Dylan does turn out to be Nikki's son - I guess they can say she got pregnant at a very, very young age! And Steve Burton could probably pass as young as someone in his mid 30s.

Now this was the problem that I had with them being mom and son, monetfan. I didn't know their ages but Dylan looks too old to be Nikki's son. BUT....we're talking about soapland where ages are manipulated all of the time.

Don't you hate when they rewrite history? They must think because long time viewers have been watching so long, we're all senile.

And, Phyllis & Daniel. In real life, I think only 13 years separates the actor's ages!

I don't understand why a new person can't just come to town & have their own back story. Why do they always have to turn out to be some long lost son or daughter or other relation?

I so agree.

Dylan was a new character - yes he had known Phyllis and Avery growing up, and had had the relationship with Avery which brought him to Genoa City - but he stood on his own. There are just too many strange coincidences in the world of soaps! To possibly now make him the long-lost son of Nikki and Paul is just a bit too cute.

I don't know why, but I find Nicki annoying, with her whiny little girl voice & her snooty nose in the air routine as she swans around! Can you tell I'm not a Nicki fan? lol

Here's a link to a TV Guide interview with Eric Braeden regarding the recent writer shake-up. He sounds like a cranky unpleasant old man to work with! Actually, he sounds just like Victurd!
