And, like Matt Ashford, Blake is capable of playing those nuances, I think.

Thanks for posting the article. I really do love the way Blake is playing Nick. I've been watching some old clips that include Jack in the post-rape/post Billy reveal days. Nick reminds me a lot of Jack. He's not as openly hostile, but the way Jack manipulates Melissa is very similar to the way Nick manipulates Gabi -- the biggest difference being that Jack didn't love Melissa and Nick does love Gabi. But there are similarities. There are also similarities in that both guys have enough underlying vulnerability, that you can't just dismiss them as bad guys. There is something in there that makes you want to understand them, makes you want to believe they can be better.
I'm very hopeful that they give Nick a chance at redemption someday. But even if they don't, I do love the layers he brings to the character.
