I hate this show.

Nick uses a gay slur. Because that is in character for him. Because highly educated, brilliant people tend to be religious homophobes. Or because he is short-term so it's okay to trash his character and then toss him out on his ear. This would be a so much more interesting story if Nick were his old nerdy, sincere character rather than the creepy, ex-drug addict, ex-con and someone else were the homophobe (like, oh I don't know, Rafe - the Catholic cop who's sister is carrying a baby and hiding the fact that the father is a gay man, maybe?) I really don't like this trend. I hope if Days goes knocking on any more doors, they have enough sense not to answer.
I think the old, nerdy Nick character was trashed when they had him become addicted to pain pills and obsessed with Melanie, had him kill Trent, and then kidnap Melanie. The guy running around now is far more consistent with the guy who did all that then he would if he were suddenly the old, geeky Nick.

It's already been teased that Nick's issues with homosexuality may be related to his prison stint, so the possibility exists for an explanation. But even if they don't give one, I'm not sure it's completely out of character. I might be out of character for the geeky Nick, but that character died a long time ago. I don't know that it's so out of character for the ex-con, slightly to moderately obsessive guy we have now.
