Phyllis and Diane’s bad blood goes back decades, stemming from their love triangle with Jack Abbott. The two women have fought bitterly over Jack’s affections time and again.

Phyllis got revenge by faking her own death and framing Diane. Now, despite their endless sparring, these scheming ladies could align.
