For once, I want the person being blackmailed to challenge their blackmailer to do their worst. What is Nick going to do? Nothing. He will not call the police because then everyone will know that he attempted to rape Gabi and he'll lose Gabi for ever. And yes, any competent lawyer will be able to toss the pictures as evidence. I felt the same way when Nick was blackmailing Will. Nick had more to lose because blackmail is a crime and that means he broke the conditions of his probation. Will was a minor when he shot EJ. No DA would've brought a case like that to court. The supposed victim would have testified for the defence and Will would have had parade of witnesses testifying to his state of mind and the incredible trauma he was facing at the time.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
This is true. It was Kate's idea and Sami agreed. Gabi of course followed along with the others.
Which was so stupid. Half the town saw Gabi and Nick argue and Gabi walk away from him. That means that Nick followed her into the woods after Gabi ended the confrontation. If they'd called the cops right then the cops could have asked around and gotten witness statements to back up Gabi's version of events.
And, even now, the fact that Nick never reported the attempted murder but instead is blackmailing them all...basically doesn't make him look like much of a credible witness. Sure, the pictures look bad, but Nick is alive and well and if he took the crime seriously, he wouldn't be blackmailing them. A good lawyer could get those pictures thrown out, given that Percy is colluding with Nick in the blackmail.
I felt the same way when Theresa was blackmailing JJ...nothing he did even comes close to her blackmailing a kid trying to go straight into procuring her drugs for her. I can't imagine a judge not being grateful that JJ told the truth so he could put Theresa, a fully grown, adult, incorrigible criminal, in prison.
I guess there's no drama without suspension of common sense and legal reality.
