On The Young and the Restless, Kyle Abbott and Summer Newman go way back. They even managed to celebrate Thanksgiving together in their younger years, and now they’re married. We’re so thankful for this couple.

Young and the Restless — Kyle and Summer

We’ll probably never get over Y&R letting Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Summer (Allison) get married off-screen, but we did appreciate their vowel renewal in Genoa City for their one-year anniversary. It’s been wonderful to have them back in town, watching them with their adorable son Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez). Sure, there’s drama surrounding Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters), but what daytime couple actually stays drama-free for long?

If you’re a long-time viewer, you might remember that Summer’s mother, Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford), wasn’t sure whether Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) or Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) was her father. At one point, they even worried that Kyle might be Summer’s brother, which made their growing romantic relationship potentially complicated.

Thankfully, it all worked out in the end, and Nick got to claim his Super Girl for his own daughter. That storyline paved the way for a long relationship with plenty of ups and downs for Summer and Kyle.

Let Them Eat Cake

In their earlier years, Samantha Bailey portrayed Summer, and Garrett Ryan portrayed Kyle. Kyle and Summer share a unique Thanksgiving meal that consists of steak after missing the big dinner in the sweet clip below. Both Jack and Diane Jenkins (then Maura West) eat the tasty dinner with the two children. Then, Summer and Kyle rushed to grab the big cake they had for dessert. Check out the sweet flashback scene below.
