Donīt understand. The show needs an OBGyn for Nicol, someone who will get along with her game till she "delivers". Itīs not a few days appearance and they need to be sure the actor will be available whenever needed so they gave him a longer deal. IMO itīs a normal production decision any producer has to make every day and itīs no way connected with the decision to let go BB or DH/DDH.

I can already sense where this thread will head...
Poor Jarlena fans... you have my condolences.
Not to mention Blake Berris fans.
I donīt understand what should Jarlena or Nick fans be angry. It only means they will need the character for a longer time and itīs less expensive to put the actor on contract than to pay him for each appearance as day player.
I think the issue is that it shows 'TPTB's' lack of commitment to the actors currently on the show. The writers seem to be constructing stories around new actors while they're at the same time firing current ones. I wouldn't say I'm angry about this, just sad that those in charge obviously have no clue how valuable many in their current cast are.
