I've never been a believer of EJ and Nicole's lame love story, but I like where this is going so far. The only thing I have a problem with is Nicole's motive behind faking her pregnancy. It's because she doesn't want to lose EJ that she's doing this. What about the baby she just lost? I would rather if they played it that Nicole is doing this because she doesn't want to lose EJ and because she fell in love with that comfort thought of a child and she's going to have this child one way or another.

Making this all about her not wanting to lose EJ is why soap opera women are weak.
Well, I bought the love story but I do agree in liking this story. As Kev said, it's nice to see a major story with repercussions. We had one with John dying last year but the show reneged on that. The show hasn't had a story in a long time like this and hopefully they will follow through to the end because the last few years they have changed course and screwed it all up and that is why it's taken so long to have a story like this.

I do disagree about Nicole not mourning or thinking about the baby. She's mentioned the baby numerous times and so much of this seems driven by the fact that she can't have anymore children. She came up with the "padding plot" right after she learned she couldn't have anymore children. She held on to hope and it was dashed and now she thinks she has no shot with EJ because she can't give him what Sami already has. I think this is about the comfort thought of having a child for that reason because at least with that baby she had someone (along with a hold on EJ) and now she won't have no one if she loses EJ, hence why she is doing all this to hold on to him.

I just think it's interesting because we are getting shades of old and new Nicole. So far, I'm enjoying it but they need to work up the Sami aspect of this since we all know Nicole will end up with her baby somehow.

This sounds good though. I have to laugh at people being shocked by this story still going on. It's been only two weeks. Hopefully, they will build this sucker for awhile and let it play out for once. The show needs a longterm story with a big payoff. It's been awhile.

IA with you PR, I don't think it has gone on that long but I'm impatient for EJ to find out about both women. :popcorn:

I don't happen to agree with most viewers. While I don't like Nicole's lie I don't think its really all that terrible. The person she's hurting the most is herself, she's only delaying the inevitable for EJ. Eventually he will find out his baby girl is gone and he will be devastated. I only wish they could have shared their loss. IMO, that would have been really fantastic storytelling. I would have loved to have seen passionate grieving scenes shared by James and Ari. Now, at best we'll have sad EJ, then furious EJ then forgiving EJ, then Ejole makeup sex. Who knows, maybe Nicole will even end up with another miracle baby LOL

The only thing I'm worried about is that BOTH lies need to come to the forefront. If EJ takes Sami over Nicole over this, then I know the writing, for me, will definitely end my viewing. I guess I'm a fangirl, I'll admit it, LOL. (Alligato, you should be proud of me. "I'm Lady O.T.L, and I'm a fangirl") But, I can see Nicole's reasoning over Sami's (weak as it is), but it still bugs me.
But when the lies come out, EJ needs to drop both women like a bad habit, unless Nicole confesses. But then, where's the drama? Arggh. I hate getting pissed off at my favorites. Maybe by that time, I'll fall for Bricole. :D If I'm still watching. I just haven't mustered up the interest to watch this week's recordings yet!
And, Tim, you're right. It's only been two weeks. We have to build up enough time to let Sami have her baby so Nicole can adopt that child!
This is so much like the Shimi/Shelle redux for me. Mimi holds a secret about Claire's paternity from Shawn because she fears losing Shawn to Belle. I was mad about that, but I could see why Mimi did it. In the meantime, Belle is chasing this married man all over creation, pretty well dissing her husband (OK, whether or not you liked Phelle...she was pretty well mentally cuckolding him. Lust in her heart, and all that jive) and treating Mimi like crap and telling all of Salem who she really loved, and they all bowed to her. I hate GlitterGirls. But Mimi did try to tell Shawn a few times, and he just cut her off and said whatever you have to say doesn't matter. I still love you. There was that same opening with Nicole and EJ, and EJ, like Shawn, was idiotic enough to not see there was something seriously wrong. And, as EJ went on and on about how important that baby was.......egads. Nicole should have spoken up, but I can understand why she was written not to. But, at one point, she did try. If nothing else, the writing in both cases tapped into the stereotypical "guy needs to be bashed on the head to see something is wrong". (Ah, I still love men. I'm married to one! :smooch: But yeah, sometimes I have to bash him on the head for him to see something's wrong. All that Venus and Mars stuff). But I'm so scared, that in the end, they'll write it as him going back to Sami and understanding Sami's ridiculous "hiding this pregnancy because I'm afraid of Stefano even though my son is still with in that house" scenario.
So, I don't know if I have the heart to watch this and relive basically the same emotions I did with Shimi and Shelle, fearing that the glitter will win out over the hard-luck girl who just wants Prince Charming to ride into her life and whisk her off to happily ever after. Maybe after all the stress of various Christmas concerts is over......
