I find this concept really intriguing because I think this is a really good point.

For example,Vargas obviously did something bad to Nick and it's too late to undo it, but that's no reason to write him out, if that was the planned story arc.
It depends what the something bad was. I think there are bad things Vargas could have done to Nick which are redeemable, rape just isn't one of them particularly under those circumstances.
If he's just assaulted Nick in prison for ratting him out and giving him an extra three years prison time that probably is redeemable.
Hell Rafe assaults someone about three times a year and he's still here.
Although if Days has taught me anything its to believe in the power of "Change" so maybe you can go from being in prison rapist to the next Bo Brady.
Now would Vargas be unreedable because he raped a another man and not a woman? Because how many male characters on this show have raped a woman and were allowed to be redeemed and stay on the show and eventually put into a romantic pairing? And if that's the case, then what's wrong with this picture?
I think my issues may be biased against the bi sexual nature of it and yet I don't have a problem with EJill.
I'm not against rapists being redeemed because I love Jack as a character and I don't hold his rape against him even though Kayla is one of my favourites.
I also have no problem with our favourite rapist EJ still being on the show.
It might be more to do with my concepts of the kind of man Hope should be with.
