TBH, I have never liked any version of Nick, and I think GG and BB are very similar in their acting styles. I don't mind him being BSC but I think they did him a disservice with the way the character returned and interacted with so many classic characters only to have him basically completely marginalized once he got in Salem. Similar to how they took the time to "redeem" him in May but didn't bother to have him interact with family only to have him go off the rails again.
I think BB is a solid actor, certainly the best of his age group but I agree that the writing for Nick has really made it hard to keep up and to care much about what happens to him. Having him come back and be manipulative and stalkerish with Gabi and the baby was fine - but then why redeem him during the showdown at the cabin back in May and give him reasons for his reactions to things if they weren't going to continue on with that. It's so odd the way they just basically left him hanging for a while after that - and then brought him back for more of the same stalkerish and manipulative intentions with Gabi.

And just for the record, I'm rather enjoying the recent influx of Ericole avis. :wub:
I also agree. Nick's initial return to Salem involved Maggie, Hope, Julie, even his mom made an appearance. But slowly & surely, Nick had less scenes with Maggie & Hope and more scenes with Gabi, Will, Sonny, Sami, etc. And after Jensen kidnapping Nabi & shooting Will, we started to get even less of Nick as a whole. I honestly can't really recall anything Nick has been involved in between the Jensen stuff & sleeping with Gabi in Wilson's apartment. We have no explanation for why Nick snapped & became obsessed with Gabi after they had sex.
If Nick does survive past this week, I'd love to see him properly redeemed in the end - in some way or another.
Nick's craziness aside, I do love that we've seen Hope be supportive of Nick and his decision to leave Salem (albeit she has no idea about the Gabi part), feel sad that he's having such a difficult time now that he's out of prison, and even admitting that he has done wrong while still knowing he needs people in his corner. I just wish we'd seen more Hope/Nick throughout (& some Maggie/Nick thrown in only because it would be appropriate, though I'm not sure Maggie would've been able to take the time out of her Fetch pimping schedule to do so).
