While I'm still open to Ericole, this is the reason I also really would like for Rafe and Nicole to get together. Nicole would be in a better place because Rafe has been shown to be a good guy who genuinely cares about her, and the two have chemistry, so you know they wouldn't be boring. I'll always be an EJole fan first and foremost, but I think Nicole needs to get herself together, and maybe find someone who cares about her. Then she can make EJ jealous and he will come begging on his knees for her. Someone mentioned wanting fresh and new couples, with EJabby as an example. I honestly think Ericole is halfway there, only they've been done before (changing the actor doesn't count), which is why I think Rafe could be a fantastic choice for Nicole.

The big takeaway from this for me is that I already like Greg Vaughn in this role. In the clip posted, he just feels...right. Charismatic. I'm comfortable with the destruction of Ejole for the sake of Ericole. I love James Scott, but E.J. is, as another member aptly noted, a "gross piece of shit". He's downright vile. That doesn't mean I want to see E.J. leave (definitely not), but I do want to indulge in the schadenfreude of watching him sink his chances with Sami yet again (because that's almost certainly how this thing is going to play out). I want Nicole to be in a better place, and with Eric that is much more likely - and his status as a priest means that even though he's a "good guy", there's an increased likelihood that their dynamics will be steamy and scandalous instead of the usual boring dreck that accompanies "good guys" on this show. A lot of people will have very strong opinions about them if they start falling back in love and the whole thing has plenty of potential.
I'd have been open to Ericole, but the whole dead baby sours my feelings to this show along with the continued destruction of Ejole. :shame:
I can't get invested in another pairing or character anymore. If I decided to like Ericole and give them a try who's to say they won't try to destroy them at some point? My trust with this show is pretty much gone for good.
And really if Days wanted to pair Ejole with Brady twins or other people the least they could have done was give the couple proper closure so fans of the couple could move on. I'd have been open to given Ericole a chance, but the fact that they went to such great lengths to destroy a couple that was so much in love shows me that what's on my screen may not matter now and that in the long run there's no point in investing in any pairing on this show, because the writers will have no problem destroying them the second the find a new pairing to obsess over. :shame:
As for the episode. It was OK, but EJ is continuing to be his pathetic self. I cannot wait to see him being all alone once Sami chooses either Lucas or Rafe over him. He deserves it. After she dumps him, hopefully he sees Ericole making out and gets even more depressed. :D
