Y&R History

Victor & Nicholas by Christopher

Unlike sister Victoria, Nicholas Newman was mostly raised by step-father Jack Abbott, his father's greatest enemy. Nicholas was close to Victor, but considered Jack his father in all ways that mattered. When he returned from boarding school in Switzerland, he was intent on proving himself in the business world. He graduated from Genoa City University with accolades and earned himself a position in his Father's company, Newman Enterprises. What followed was a series of attempts on his part to prove to his Father that he could make decisions for himself. However, when Nicholas united with Jack and Brad Carlton in a business deal not approved by Victor, his Father rewarded him by canceling the deal and leaving Nick to feel like he had no support. He set out on his own and purchased a coffeehouse, later expanding to two businesses. Victor didn't approve and reduced Nick's workload and responsibilities at NE as a form of punishment.

When Nick ended up in prison for a crime he didn't commit, Victor fought tirelessly to prove his son's innocence, and they seemed on the verge of repairing their broken relationship when Nick was cleared of all charges and released. However, Nick and Sharon's marriage was in jeopardy and Victor was lending an ear. Nick was increasingly bothered by his Father's 'interference' and asked him to keep his distance from the troubled Sharon. But Victor remained by her side, and in a moment of weakness (when he was on painkillers and she was an emotional basket case) the two kissed. Nick witnessed the kiss and was horrified.

Nick left Sharon and she fled town, devastated. When Cassie, their daughter, nearly died after falling into a frozen pond, Nick refused to allow Victor to see his granddaughter. Nikki, in a shockingly emotional moment, learned the truth about Nick's anger towards his Father. She lashed out at her husband for allowing Sharon to initiate that kiss and warned that Nick would never forgive Victor. When Sharon returned to town, she fought against Victoria and Nikki while trying to win back Nick's love. Only Victor offered her support.

In an effort to improve relations with his son, Victor chose to begin mentoring Nick to take over NE someday. Victoria, who had been in the business longer and with more notable success, was furious and saddened by her Father's choice. Then Nick learned that Victor had bribed key store owners to give preferential treatment to NE's new product line, over a similar line created by Jabot. Out of loyalty to his former step-father Jack, and out of resentment for Victor, Nick turned his Father in to the Federal Authorities. Christine Blair, Victor's long-time friend, was forced to arrest Victor, who spent Christmas Eve in jail. Father and son bonded briefly when Victor faced his birth Father, shortly before the man died. However, it wasn't enough. When he was released and eventually given community service as punishment, Victor fired Nick from NE and replaced him with Neil Winters. Victor did reach out to Nick, and try to convince him to work with him in his community service project, but Nick refused.

Meanwhile, Victoria Newman, saddened by her family's turmoil, left town to start her life anew.
