So much this! It wasn't dramatic - it didn't have emotional stakes for me - because Eric doesn't have a dog in the fight. I mean, sure he's upset about getting raped, and he considers Nicole a friend, but for anyone who thinks this is great drama, imagine how much more, how much better, this all would be if we'd seen Eric wrestling with his feelings for Nicole! If we'd seen him imagining a life with her and wanting to be with her, but choosing to honor his vows. How much more devastating this would be if we had onscreen evidence that Eric is IN love with Nicole (not just that he cares about her). They've made this all one sided. Nicole is the one who feels total devastation because of his accusation because we've seen how much she loves Eric. It just isn't going both ways, which it needs to do in order to make it something the audience can truly invest in. It's like it waters down all of Eric's reactions.
