Dreaming of a Melanie-free Days
I think the show's going to a fair amount of trouble to make this not a random act of violence. I mean, I think they made Nick the killer because he's one of the most squeaky-clean people on canvas by Salem standards and they think it will be shocking. That being said, they're giving him more than, say, Lucas got when he shot EJ--that was just supposed to be jealousy/frustration motivating that crime, whereas Nick is apparently going to be mentally ill and having problems with prescription medication and saving Melanie from Trent. And Trent was an utterly worthless bastard who nobody cared was dead. I think if they were going to write Nick off, they wouldn't have had it be under these circumstances, where there a lot of factors going into making this an interesting character study.|
I don't like the random use of serious criminal acts as plot points either. But I do think in this case that it's not going to be all that hard to redeem Nick.
