Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.
I agree - if Nicole were to tell EJ the truth NOW she would stand a much better chance of having him forgive her for all of it. The fact that she isn't is what convinces me all the more that this is ultimately the EJami story.
I don't think Nicole did what she did necessarily to spite Sami - I think that was part of it at first, but I think Grace's death and watching Sami suffer through that did have a strong impact on Nicole. Not strong enough to step up immediately and do the right thing in regard to reuniting her with her daughter...but enough that she felt sympathetic and even some guilt.
But in the end, whether she loves EJ and/or Sydney it seems that Nicole is willing to risk having them both suffer - EJ thinking he's lost another two children (the one she miscarried as well as the one he believed (rightfully) was his daughter, but now thinks is not) and Sydney being forced from their home and potentially embroiled in a custody battle with a teenager who mistakenly believes he is her father.
Nicole has dug her hole so deep and so far she doesn't see any other option than to just keep digging - no matter what it does to the people she supposedly loves. Were it not for Ari's brilliant performances it would be difficult to have any sympathy at all for her but Ari has made the character so compelling that it's hard not to feel bad for her, even as she continues down the same destructive path.
