The original Marie, Maree Cheatam isn't dead.

Well. I don't think this is an "addiction" story. It's a multiple personality storyline. The drugs "trigger" something. And thanks to erratic writing through the months, they can probably dig out several bits of "Nick Weirdness" to show his mental illness. Heck, all the way back to the weirdness of Nick's Touch The Sky Las Vegas shenanigans.
The Jessica storyline was 25 years ago. Much much more is known about mental illness these days.
Sadly, both of the "Maries" are dead, as is Quinn Redeker, so no grandparental units are in sight. I don't think Jean Bruce Scott and Scott Palmer are still "in the business", but it would be great to have Nick's parents back on the scene.
If they're not available, please no recasting or stuntcasting. Just use the stray Hortons (Maggie, MackMickey, Julie, Doug, Hope)....
Of course, they can't use too many old Jessica clips anyway, as Chris Kositchek was a major player in the Josh/Jessica storyline. Hmmm, then again, maybe we can morph Josh Taylor back into Chris now that fakeRoman was passed by for Commissioner.....
You, know, back in the awful TTS story, Nick was in that explosion with a head injury and that too could play into his strange behavior. That plus all the other things going on with him.
