I have no problem accepting how Nicole was in the PAST but I do take exception to calling her names that no longer pertain to who she is now. I am equally annoyed by people that say "once a rapist always a rapist". Characters should be allowed to learn from their past mistakes, to grow and evolve without getting cornered in by previous bad writing.
Whatever Nicole was before it should not restrict her from becoming a better person/character.
One of the best posts explaining Nicole for me...especially in reference to the rapist part.
The only way a character remains remotely interesting for me is to see some kind of growth, some kind of change. Otherwise, we are watching the same shit for the past 15 years and I tend to hate the character (ie. SAMI).
I don't mind Nicole being a slut, gold digger, etc. I loved watching that. But I have also loved this soft maternal side too. It is called layers to a character, and it makes her interesting...and Ari makes it believable.
A lesser actress couldn't pull it off...maybe that is why Sami still is acting 15...imo, of course.
