Time to Reunite Sydole
- October 31, 2010
We will just have to agree to disagree. All the anvils are telling me they will be a couple. It's very obvious at least to me where this is going. If they would have slowly intertwined Eric into Nicole's SL I might have agreed, but they gave us an Ericole flashback after GV had been on screen for all of one day. And now they have Nicole completely dependent on Eric, and that really turns me off.

Sure Ericole aren't in a relationship just yet but we all know where it's going to lead, with the constant anvil dropping. We also have Nicole 100 percent dependent on Eric and the nunnery for her job. It doesn't matter to me if Ericole get a slow build or not, because this storyline is so predictable. And this show is basically telling me Ericole are going to be together before I've even been able to decide whether or not I even like them together.
But they're not doing that here. Just think of Ejaylor. They were smitten from the moment they met. They were dreaming about each immediately. To me, that's forcing a couple before gauging any type of audience reaction to them. As it looks now, Ericole may interact for months before they even have an "electric moment." They still have a lot of obstacles to work through. Nicole is still getting over Daniel. Eric has this whole "night terrors" thing and whatever he went through while off screen. And that's before we even get turn to that tiny little obstacle of Eric being a priest sworn to celibacy. Yes, they are writing them in each other's orbit and yes, regular soap watchers know what that might mean, but I don't see anything on-screen yet to indicate that these two are going to be a couple. At the end of the day, they have to write some kind of story for potential couples and that's simply what they are doing here. There is nothing that indicates they are being rushed at all. Yet.
