I have the article..this is the direct quote...
But can EJ forgive her?
"Yes he really loves her," says Scott. "it was a poor choice but it wasn't malicious. Does it make her a horrible person? No. She made a very, very, poor choice and she had to deal with some of fallout from that. She got herself into a situation where she really didn't have a choice but to keep on fighting; otherwise, she was losing everything she was trying to protect."
No where does he qualify that his opinion is in reference to the first part of the reveal or the last or any part. The writer asks him if his character can forgive Nicole...he said YES.
Now thats the actor's opinion of what he knows about the SL....not what EJ knows so far. The actor has knowledge of what's going to happen, so based on his knowledge, he stated his opinion of what his character MAY do/feel.
Do I take his word as gospel...no, but some fans like to constantly annoy others by repeating his quotes when it suits their fanbase purposes, while IGNORE quotes and misinterpret them and judge others as being wrong when they don't like what an actor says.
It's not fun posting when you have people bulling others to see it their way and that their opinions are wrong.
Unless you are a head writer/exec producer, you dont know what going to happen in the show.
I used to like to discuss topics here, but let's call a spade a spade, if your fave character/couple interfere with ejami...then be prepared to be attacked.
This has happened with Lucas, Nicole, and now its happening with Rafe.
I dont know what's going to happen, I'm going to enjoy my couple until I can't....that's all I can do.
(And as for the ignore feature...tried that...doesn't really work when people quote the person...LOL)
