Nick doesn’t want Victor to find out that Christian is Adam’s biological child, because Nick doesn’t want to lose the boy he loves.
He also doesn’t want Victor getting his hands on the adorable little boy who thinks of him as a father.
So, maybe this is a case of keeping your friends close but your enemies closer. Maybe Nick has learned a few secrets from his old man, and is now taking a page out of Victor’s book.
If Victor believes Nick is back under his thumb, he won’t feel compelled to look for ways to bring Nick down. (Of course, Victor already knows about Christian. But Nick doesn’t know that. And Victor doesn’t know that Nick knows. Close family!)
