Dylan's (Steve Burton) quest for a family reunion is about to produce results sooner than expected on The Young and the Restless. Socialite Nikki Newman's (Melody Thomas Scott) baby daddy/cult leader Ian Ward (Ray Wise) takes a trip to Genoa City to reunite with his former follower, just as their son heads to Idaho to learn more about his bio dad.
TV Guide Magazine: Yeah, right. Ian sexually abused Nikki back in the New World Commune days and impregnated her with Dylan. Why would she let him in the door, much less back in her life?
Wise: I can't reveal his big secret reason for coming to town — what he really wants — but he certainly hopes to reestablish a relationship with the beautiful Nikki. Once upon a time, she felt a little something for him. He thinks he can override her fears and get that back. He's a very confident fellow.
