The Bat­tle Lines Are Drawn!

CBS Soaps In Depth - - News -

Jill and Nikki’s an­i­mos­ity to­ward each other may have es­ca­lated into feud ter­ri­tory this week, but their con­flict was writ­ten in the stars decades ago when Kather­ine took Vic­tor’s bride, Nikki, un­der her wing. The two women forged a very close friend­ship, with Kather­ine view­ing the blonde bomb­shell as her own daugh­ter. In stark con­trast, the ma­tri­arch en­gaged in a long-run­ning feud with Jill af­ter the for­mer beau­ti­cian stole Kather­ine’s hubby, Phillip. (It didn’t help mat­ters when Kather­ine caused Phillip’s death by driv­ing them off a cliff!) Iron­i­cally, Jill’s jeal­ousy of Nikki be­gan in earnest when she and Kather­ine be­lieved they were mother and daugh­ter. Dur­ing that time, Kather­ine may have ac­cepted Jill as her bi­o­log­i­cal child — and the two even grew close — but Jill could never usurp Nikki’s po­si­tion as the daugh­ter of Kather­ine’s heart. De­spite the Duchess’ death, Jill can’t stop bat­tling the green- eyed mon­ster when­ever it’s brought home to her the love that Kather­ine and Nikki have al­ways felt for each other!

For bet­ter and worse, Nikki and Jill were Kay’s con­stants.
