See, these posts don't make sense to me. We are all sick of the insta-mances that TomSell puts forth, but you complain about not seeing chemistry and only a friendship between Ericole? I'm glad that they are just friends for now, because it is shown to be more realistic and that Nicole is there for him, and he is there for Nicole, and the two don't have to get right in the sack as couples usually do on this show. It's very refreshing and I give TomSell credit for doing this storyline right.

As I said elsewhere, I hope that Greg Vaughan is less stiff in these scenes than he's been in all of his other scenes. I'm glad that Eric's back, but Vaughan's still not really working for me.
I also hope that there's more to the story than this, because this seems a bit...lackluster...to me. :shrug:
I haven't found the character of Eric to add much to the show at this point. There is nothing to make me lean forward in my seat or even have an emotional reaction of any kind. Greg Vaughan is just there delivering lines in a rather uninteresting way. I'm looking for charm or a sexy mysteriousness that just isn't coming across. I haven't seen any chemistry with Nicole yet either; although it's still early and just because they don't have it for me right out of the gate doesn't mean it won't come along.
The story could be intriguing as to why he became a priest, but I don't see it as something to boost the character of Nicole. I think her spicy nature may get lost if she's drawn into his tale instead of having an exciting one of her own. Right now they bore me together.
I find the character of Eric dull so far and I'm scared that this SL is going to water the character of Nicole down instead of livening her up which is exactly what the character needs especially after all she's went through. Maybe if they hadn't brought Eric in as a boring priest I might find this SL remotely intriguing.
I personally do see chemistry between them, very similar to the Safe chemistry, in that it is cute and could be interpreted as a very subtle, but obvisouly there, chemistry, if you will. I hope they get together one day, but I can only see EJole as an ultimate endgame, and maybe Racole as being somewhere in-between both couples. :$
