I have to say Paxton, that you are right!! I was thinking with a too rational head, not a soap head. If you look at most of the characters (Victor, Kate, Lucas, EJ, Sami, Nicole, etc) they have done things that would be inexcusable, but in the world of soaps we forgive and forget. I just was thinking in a more realistic mode there for awhile, but I've come to my soap senses.....Everyone is redeemable on Days!!

I don't see how either Nicole or her relationship with EJ are in a permanent corner. Yes, what Nicole is doing is awful. But many would have thought EJ could not be redeemed after his numerous felonies and his psychopathic behavior. But after a quick conversation with God and a subsequent five-minute half-assed retconned whitewash of a non-apology, he was having a (very brief) sexual relationship with the woman who claimed he had raped her and who, whatever you thought of 12/29, was definitely guilty of trying to murder half her family, including the man she repeatedly said was her true love--though, apparently the show wants us to forget that since Sami herself as far as I know never learned that EJ locked Lucas into the freezer truck.
Sami's still on canvas after trying to sell her baby sister on the black market, raping Austin, blackmailing Lexie to lie to her own sister, and numberless other peccadilloes. Some people still desperately want her romantically with the man who she's sworn to keep his child from forever.
So, I don't see how Nicole has been written into a corner. Apparently, on this show, anyone can come back from anything.
