The Young And The Restless (Y&R) Head Writer Teases “Slow Simmer” Between Nikki And Diane

The Young And The Restless: Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters)

The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers and updates tease that there will be a “slow simmer” between Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters). The show’s head writer Josh Griffith dropped some hints on what fans can expect in Nikki’s new explosive storyline.

Fans know Nikki is someone who is feisty and fiery, and often the peacemaker within the Newman family. However, Diane’s unexpected return will shake up her life. In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Griffith teased that Nikki is relieved that she didn’t kill Diane. But now that she’s alive and back, Nikki will start thinking of getting rid of her once and for all.

But it’s all in her mind. She may not be capable of killing Diane but there will surely be some tension between the ladies.

“We’re doing a slow simmer on that side that will be a building because we have two great players in Susan and Mel that will make this all fantastic,” Griffith said.

Diane’s return will have a ripple effect on many people, especially with the Abbots and then the Newmans. She has so much history with both families so it’ll be very exciting to see what happens next.
