Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford), together forever? It’s too soon to know that for sure how their relationship will play out on CBS’s The Young and the Restless but Jack recently put all his cards on the table with his former wife and told her his feelings are as strong as ever for her. Needless to say this complicates things not just for Jack but also for Phyllis, who is currently involved with Jack’s former stepson, Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow).

So it’s the perfect time to look back on the Jack and Phyllis relationship over the decades to see not only if there is a future for them but if there should be a future for them. This is done via a series of clips from the show that looks at their past but there’s also a moment in the Jack-centric episode that looks into the future. As Bergman explains, Jack is “trying to stay awake so he can talk to [his son] Kyle in Italy,” Bergman explains. “As he fades off he begins dreaming about the repercussions about blurting those words out to Phyllis and how they affect everyone in his life.” In the end, Jack may need to do some negotiating between not only his conscience about what sharing his feelings means but also deciding if he should listen to his head or his heart.

She was last seen on-screen as pianist Leslie Brooks for the show's 45th anniversary in 2018.

For the actor, who has won three daytime Emmy awards for the role he’s played since 1989, working with Stafford has always been a dream. “I worked a great deal with Michelle Stafford for many years and tapping on that is so easy to do. I have long said that Jack and Phyllis didn’t break up because they hated each other or something went wrong. They broke up with each other because it was too painful.” He added that he and Stafford always play the history of the characters and how important it is to keep it present. “Nobody in Genoa City knows Jack better than Phyllis,” he says.
