he was deliciously naughty... it's the black glove killer...wolf!! He was so threatening, I wanted to swoon. It was good to EJ Wells, I've missed him.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
There's no need to recount his good deeds. And he has not been written as cartoon-y as Liam. I'm just saying, factor in he previous tendencies, factor in his family history of mental illness and factor in his years of prison abuse....Nick turning to the dark side is plausible.
And the thing is, in a weird way, the sweet Nick is still there. The one who just wants his happy ending. He so desperately wants his idealistic, wholesome, "white picket fence" nuclear family dreams to come true, BUT he's trying to force it. Add to the fact that most of the people he's fighting with are hella dubious themselves, I'm sure he doesn't see himself as the bad guy. He probably believes he's righting everyone else's wrongs.
But why go the route of "Bad guy falls off wagon"? Been there, done that. A lot more creative to have this demon that he is constantly battling, but can win, through psychiatric help, the love of a good woman, whatever. Having the bad guy fall bad again is just going with stereotypes. I'd much rather go the other way.
I like this story. Too many characters have been redeemed on this show. I'm hoping when Sami is gone, we get the old EJ back. I saw him today and it was exciting!
