Sorry, but I'm not buying the flimsy 'pills made Nick a murderer' excuse.
But it is what it is. It's logical. It's lame, sure. But it's logical. His character hasn't been destroyed. He has an out.
Yep. I do have to say that I'm disappointed (issue I told you so here LOL) in how they handled it because they barely went into Nick's issues. It was basically said it was the pills but no reason why the pills did it or what the pills were or whatever. You can tell they just decided to get rid of him and threw it together now. I think Nick was always an option but I have a feeling Higley may have wanted to go one way and Whitesell/Tomlin another.

I am surprised he lasted this long. I think Nick/Melanie was all Ed Scott because the minute Tomlin got there, that was nixed and Nick went psycho. I think he agreed with Higley on getting rid of Nick and Ed Scott may have stood in the way of that. I like Blake and hate losing a Horton but I've felt Nick was a waste since Hogan's final months. Nick has had no purpose since summer 2007. It seemed like he just floated around. He did nothing in the rapist story and he did nothing this year until Melanie showed up. At least they are leaving it open for a return but I can't see it happening. I think someone like Hogan is the only one who would care to write for him.

As for Jay, I wasn't worried after daytime confidential said he was staying. That was good enough for me. Glad to get it from the mags too though. He is very much needed.
I think there was great potential in Nick. The Melanie/Nick/Chelsea triangle had so many great things going for it and Nick was a fairly popular character. I don't see why writers would have a problem writing for a character like him. Granted he was overly good but that's why you have the character screw up, force to deal with consequences (which don't send him off the show) and then he tries to recover, hopefully growing closer to a love interest along the way.

And I still don't get why they can't figure stories out for Blake but yet continue to write for Darin. He's not in the hunk category. I'm sorry. This might sound cruel, but his receding hairline, bad taste in jewelry and clothes, inability to grow facial hair and underwhelming body makes him look ridiculous everytime they insist on propping his character with constant compliments.

It's even more insulting that with every compliment Max gets on his looks, the show felt they had to counter Nick with an insult on his looks. I give you he's skinny but it works so well with his character and he's not less good looking then Max.

And the show is so stupid if they would just LOOK AROUND. Do they not realize that geeky guy stories are in? Hell, one of NBC's few popular shows is Chuck. A popular character on GH is Spinelli. It's just staggering to me that the show felt they couldn't do anything with Nick's character when they have written Max in every conceivable way and STILL he's not gone anywhere. I hate to make this BB versus DB, but when the show has to do cost cutting and supposedly one of these guys from this generation have to go, it seems pretty clear which one should but of course the show chooses the other less talented, versatile and limited (story) one.
