The Young and the Restless’ Summer Newman (Hunter Haley King) is definitely starting to become her mother Phyllis' (Michelle Stafford) child. The teen schemer is still blazing mad about the affair her mother carried on with FBI Agent Ronan Malloy. (Jeff Branson) She decides it's time he gets some payback by way of his mentee, Jamie (Daniel Polo).
TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan spoke with head writer Josh Griffith and got the skinny on Summer's quest take down Ronan.
Summer is in such a screwed-up state over the divorce of her parents that she misguidedly decides to hurt Ronan by hurting this kid he cares so much about," says the soap's Emmy-winning head writer Josh Griffith. "She uses her phony online persona called 'Brittni' to form a relationship with Jamie and draw information out of him — deeply personal and hurtful stuff about his past troubles with the law — and then she blasts it out to everyone on FacePlace. She'll also be using texting and instant messaging to disparage him further.
After discovering Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) sexing up Ronan (Jeff Branson), Summer (Lindsay Bushman) went runningall the way to Daddy Nick (Joshua Morrow). At first Nick didn’t believe Summer. He kept insisting her mom's affair was just for show.When his daughter revealed she’d seen the two together, a furious Nick galloped off to Red.
When Nick arrived to call Phyllis out, she countered by screaming about how alone she was. Ronan, unlike her husband, had been there for her. Where in the wedding vows does it say "I promise to be totally understanding when it comes out that my wife tried to kill two people 20 years ago"?

Later, they questioned Kevin (Greg Rikaart) about the possibility of Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) blabbing their secrets. Meanwhile, Cricket (Lauralee Bell) and Michael (Christian LeBlanc) were putting things together, regarding the night Kev helped Red move her dead, horny, ex-shrink's body.

DAYS BYTES: A cup of black coffee costs a dollar. The look on Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) face when Sonny (Freddie Smith) said he was interested in Will — PRICELESS. Now that Adrienne disapproves of Sonny being with Will, I sort of, just a tad, ever-so-slightly want them together. Why is that?
