Come to think of it...there was some subtle hints. At the hospital after being shot, the nurse asked Nick of he wanted more pain meds or something. Then you have his behavior since then, which has been erratic. I think the DUI was designed to hint at him losing control and something not being right. It wasn't show much about what he did but what drove him to do it. His guilt was showing itself and it's likely he ran out of painkillers and resorted to alcohol that night.

I understand why many will slighted we didn't see him popping a pill or two but to me it's just giving away too much. If they did that, people would begin to suspect him and the aura of the surprise is gone, especially since he had the DUI and that alone made some question if he was guilty. I mean, on one hand some want a surprise and, on the other, they want more shown and that sometimes hurts the story. If you want to make this murder story shocking, then you have to do it this way or else you risk clueing the audience in too soon on Nick losing it. I mean, Nick was barely shown this year. There have been rumors of him leaving off and on for awhile so if you decide to expose things too soon, people will be smart enough to put two and two together and then when Nick is revealed as the killer, the impact will be gone.
Could you please pull up those scenes, maybe? Because I don't remember anything regarding pain medications with Nick. And I'm not buying the nurse asking if he wants some meds as a hint that he's going to become an addict. That's just procedure for the nurse to do. That doesn't mean every patient that the nurse asks will become an addict.

I want more hints. I want to see Nick taking these pills, perhaps in a throw away scene at the pub, at the beginning of the episode before a character comes and starts talking to Nick. It wouldn't have been too out there or causing a red flag to go up because we know that he was just shot and would definitely be taking pain pills.

Taking the pills would not be giving away too much. That's the problem with DAYS writers it seems. Either they give too much away, or they don't give enough. Find a middle ground. Seeing Nick pop pills in every single scene, many pills at a time, yes, that's giving away too much and would cause a fan to wonder if Nick is possibly addicted to these pills. But having not see him take on pill, that's not giving enough away.

Like I said in the other posts I've made, we should've seen Nick taking some pills, it could've just looked like a normal thing because he was just shot and of course he would be on pain meds. Nothing out of the blue there.

And it's not making the murder story shocking. Yes, it's shocking at first to know that Nick's the killer, but once you really read into it and once we watch it, the shock goes away and the stupidity comes to light. The fact that it doesn't make sense causes people to be turned off and scracth their heads, wondering WTF?!
