I think Blake is an incredible actor. I don't want Nick going anywhere. He's been one of the best parts of this show for the past few months. If Gabi can be turned into Mother Teresa after what she did to Mel, than Nick really hasn't done anything that can't be redeemed.
I didn't say that being sent to jail meant that he had to be written off. Granted, I have
been quite vocal about wanting Nick to be written off at the end of Blake's current contract, but that's not the point here.
The point is that Nick is still on parole, and he has committed several
serious parole violations, just in this part of the storyline alone (not even counting his efforts to blackmail Will). Realistically (and yes, I know that it's foolish to talk about realism on a soap opera), he should
be sent back to prison. If the writers want him to remain on the show at that point, they can find some way to fix the situation (which doesn't necessarily mean "redeem Nick", either -- I'm just saying that Hope wasn't written off when she was sent to prison, so Nick doesn't necessarily have to be, either), but not dealing with it at all would be dumb, IMO. Especially
since there's speculation in this thread about Sami being sent to prison as a result of her connection to the gun. (I haven't seen actual spoilers about Sami being imprisoned, so I don't know how accurate any of that is.) I know that a lot of people here love to hate Sami, but frankly, if Sami gets sent to prison as a result of all of this and Nick doesn't
, that will be beyond
(Oh, and I'm not sure that I'd agree that Gabi has been turned into Mother Theresa. Mother Snooki, maybe [clueless and as dumb as a box of rocks], but not Mother Theresa [sainted and above reproach].)
