Ok, what if the show dives into Nick's family history? The drugs isn't enough to explain away this behavior but what if it jumpstarts the mental illness that plagued his mother and could be inherited? That could be an awesome story?

(Week of November 10th)
Nick threw a creepy "private" birthday party for Melanie, in which he gave her a "friendship" ring, and he had a flashback that revealed he was Trent's killer. Things got weirder: Nick tried to talk Melanie into leaving Salem with him, but she wanted to stay put. Then, in Maggie's house, Melanie discovered the stationery on which the threatening note was written. She confronted Nick and he admitted to writing the note and making the phone calls, but said he did it to protect Melanie. The follow-up - Nick told Melanie she had killed Trent – he saw her do it. He convinced her it was the truth. But Bo and Hope got the real story from the cemetery's caretaker. He ID'ed Nick as the killer to shocked Bo and Hope.
i don't like ANY of this. the last thing nick is to me is 'creepy.' painkillers or no(and i have known PLENTY of people that have been addicted to them) it is not going to make you fundamentally change who you are as a person. in other words, i don't buy that nick is going to go from a guy that goes out of his way to protect the people the cares about to a guy that would blame something he did on someone else.
making him the killer is annoying, but i can understand that. havign him try to convince melanie that she did it? and the excuse is painkillers? no way!!!
i am seriously thisclose to not watching this show anymore. i'm tired of seeing characters assassinated over stupid plot twists such as this one.
I've already been feeling that way.
I love a good twist, and I wanted the guilty party to be someone that is a real cast member vs. a throway, but this is so out of left field, and it does change the core of Nick's character. This feels like a last minute random shock value change vs a thought out plot twist.
I could see him killing Trent to protect Melanie. I'd almost applaud him for it, but to then try to convince Melanie she did it?
The drugs would have to be some mind-altering Stefano type of drugs for me to buy it.
So typical, I wanted it to be Stax or Melanie just to put them in prison and throw away the key. Nick was the one young person I genuinely liked as a sweet geeky guy. I'm not against them branching BB out, but I did like his genuine nice guy quality.
The song 'Another one bites the Dust' keeps replaying in my head. I heard it on the way to work. Seems apropos, lol.
But I still am worried because the show doesn't take such time to write out such stories anymore. I really don't like Nick becoming obsessive because it's difficult to bring a character back from that. They succeeded with EJ because of the huge popularity of JS. I'm probably the biggest fan of Nick/Blake on this board (Lord I sound like Terry, LOL) but I don't think audiences would forget his behavior and look past it.
*calming down* I will try to just enjoy the ride. It's typical monkey's paw for me. I wanted them to give Blake a big story with stuff for him to sink his teeth into. I didn't mean though for him to become a killer who is trying to seduce/manipulate a woman into running away with him.
