I don't disagree with this at all. If there is an interest in pairing Ericole long term then I think they'll take their time and play things out slowly. It really does make the pay off that much sweeter and allows time to bring the majority of the audience on board.

No part of my post was actually a serious suggestion that Days was doing something wrong, lol. In fact, I'm about to campaign for all Salem men to enter the priesthood if that's what it takes to get the writers to slow things down. ;)
I didn't think you have a problem with the way things are playing. :)
My comment was actually more in reference to someone's suggestion that because Eric is still wearing his collar in a few months Ericole may not have given in to their desires. I don't think that is necessarily the case.
I actually hope that Eric still has his collar because they have not given into their desires. There is absolutely no reason to rush this. I waited a year for S&K and while it was extremely frustrating, it made it all more meaningful in the end. The last thing I want for Eric and Nicole is for them to just get together. I want them to be fighting against it every step of the way until they can't fight anymore.
And, I would much prefer if Eric leaves the priesthood first. I think it's a better story for him if he has to deal with that conflict up front than it is if he's basically having a secret affair.
Personally, I'd prefer to see Nicole written as being the one who takes the high road and the real conflict being that Eric eventually can't fight his feelings for her. It's too predictable to write Nicole as the seductress - I'd like to see them give her a rock solid romance built on something other than her manipulations or under handed schemes. This is the perfect opportunity to do that - and it would be great to see Nicole be unequivocably the one and only choice for Eric.
