The Young and the Restless will celebrate Melody Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary on the daytime drama by devoting an entire episode to her character, Nikki Newman.

Wednesday’s episode of the CBS sudser will feature vintage flashbacks from episodes that haven’t been seen since their original broadcast. The episode also focuses on Nikki’s current narrative: she’s in jail and since she doesn’t know when she’ll get out, she writes a letter to her grandchildren about her action-packed life and marriage to Victor (Eric Braeden).

Scott’s character was first introduced on Feb. 20, 1979.

“I would never have guessed when I first accepted the role of Nikki Newman in 1979 that I would be fortunate enough to be playing her 40 years later,” Scott said in a statement. “I treasure the gifts and memories it has given me immensely. I feel most fortunate to have enjoyed every minute of these 40 years.”

The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS.
