I really get a feeling that Days might be doing a rape storyline with Nick - Blake Berris's latest tweets to fans sounds that way anyway. Will the writing for it suck? Most likely, since it's at the hand of Tomlin. But at least Blake is a good actor, if anyone would do a good job with that story, it's him!
the only minus side about this story is that Gabi would be smack dab in the middle of it. and just like with Tomlin's other pets, Rafe & Daniel, Gabi would be painted as the saint that saves Nick and helps him get through all of this. Because heaven forbid anyone in his family had ever been to prison & been beaten while there (ehem - Hope), or that a very close friend be a psychiatrist (ehem - Marlena).
I was gonna add that we've even got Sami who's been raped, but TPTB love to forget this minor point in favor of furthering EJami. Though it would be an interesting dynamic to have Sami help someone who's gone through a somewhat similar experience, even though he's not comfortable with her son's sexuality.

I don't get it when people attack the portrayers.
A friend was in a UK soap when a character came out and got some online attention as his character was part of the coming out process. Had his character been "homophobic" (still do not know what people mean by this as it's used incorrectly all the time), the reaction may not have been so positive.
I do a little acting, and have played some characters that do not resemble my particular set of beliefs and it wouldn't occur to me that a I may have to defend myself or explain my character. I guess some of it is the difference between stage and screen.

That is true about Sami, although I don't really have the urge to see her involved in another storyline. Lol.

In addition to those you've mentioned, even Nicole to a certain extent could maybe be a help to Nick. And for once, maybe her ''porn'' past wouldn't be used as a joke. It was a solemn time that left her victimized - I wouldn't mind the opportunity for the show to look at it in a serious light instead of it just something people carelessly use to make fun of her.

If they go with a Nick was raped in prison storyline is this show going to say how horrible it is for a man to be raped by another man, but if a man rapes a woman on this show, she should be dating and parenting kids with him?

Ehh I don't mind Gabi being involve if Nick is rape. They are sorta together at the moment. Why wouldn't she be there for him? She was there for him when Chad beat him up and he was there for her when Chad was threatening her. They both been there for each other when they needed it and been pretty good to each other.

I rather see this than the evitably baby sl coming up. That will be a huge mess. Of course Nick will be portray as the villian to " pooor pooor innocent" Will.

Excellent point. I hope the writers don't expect us to believe that one situation is acceptable because of the circumstances, but not the other. Sorry, the viewers aren't that stupid. Neither is Ok

That would be so good and Sami would be forced to deal with what happened to her not once but three times. it was a big mistake to have her leave therapy so soon after her first rape and IMO that has lead her down this path where she thinks so little of herself that she let things happen without taking action, even entertaining a relationship with one of her abusers "for the kids". They really need to stop that. It has destroyed her character but it doesn't help that places like SONY are promoting it as something it has NEVER been. On Nick I just don't want them to turn him psycho again after the Wabi baby reveal. I loved Chelsea and Nick and was warming up to Gabi and Nick but I already see the writing is on the wall and the PTB will do to them what they have to every couple set out to destroy them. :frustration:

I've had so much fun watching the interaction between Kristen and all the characters on DAYS.#lovethisstoryline
Well at least she's enjoying it. I on the other hand, had higher expectations. Sigh. If only we could have better writers - writers who could play to her strengths well. I love Kristen in any form, but I would prefer we had her in a different form - a more villainous form.
I'm enjoying having Kristen back but I do hope we get to see her nastier side soon. It wasn't the good girl version of Kristen that everyone loved in the 90's -- it was the mega-bitch version who nearly put a bullet in Marlena's head and tried to pass off another woman's baby as her own that everyone loved.

As for the story... I'm not really sure what to think. Kristen has had lots of interactions since returning to Salem, but she's mainly been used as a prop for Sami and EJ. If she's gaslighting Marlena, I'd like to see it so I know there's an actual story that's actually going somewhere. I'd like the stakes to be raised a bit. There needs to be more to the story than stealing Marlena's phone and saying passive-aggressive things to get under her skin. I need Kristen to actually do something -- something big, something worthy of the character. Leave the kiddie stuff to Gabi.
:cheers:

Seriously!!!!!!!!!!

Poor Blake. Must have had some predictable crazies coming after him because of Nick's actions. I'm not surprised, but it never ceases to amaze me how many people really can't separate an actor from their character. I do think its ridiculous that Nick Fallon, Mr. Science, suddenly is uber religious...he isn't the typical inmate so the whole "Finding God" thing doesn't work for me, but whatever fits the writers agenda. I guess they felt Nick could survive being the person who is against Sonny and Will. I think they should have went with Chad, but at least Blake is a much better actor than CD.
Well that's a Horton for you. They tend to take out the bible on needs only basis, then they just shove it in the drawer until the next time.

@BlakeBerris Do you think Nick Fallon's stint in prison could unveil untold future storyline possibilities with regard to his demeanor now?
Blake Berris: I do.

@BlakeBerris Bah! I still love Nick, and you! It would be fun if #DAYS could delve into why he thinks the way he does. I have my suspicions!
Blake Berris: we're going there. just gotta wait for it

Glad to see Blake confirming, once again, that there is definitely more to the story. Like others have said, though, it's too bad that he's getting heat on Twitter.

Um...I think that's my favorite point ever made on this board. Maybe the internet more generally.

My thing about a possible prison rape is that I don't know what a man getting assaulted has to do with beliefs about homosexuality, unless he was raped by a gay man, maybe. But I'm sure a show like Days will be real clear in dealing with all of the possible complexity...

If Nick was assualted in prison by a heterosexual man, wouldn't that help explain why he views homosexuality as a choice? The person who assaulted him apparently chose to engage in that behavior. And yes, we all know that rape is about power, not sex. But I think basic human nature makes it harder for victims to truly make that distinction.

I don't know where this is going or how well or poorly it will be handled. But there is a whole lot of room for some nuance and I have faith that Blake that bring that out if the writing allows him to.

I was thinking the same. Does that not feed into anti-homosexuality sentiment? (ie people who think homosexuality is a perversion or illness or some sort) While I am happy to see DAYS make the effort of showing all sides to "the gay storyline" I also think that if Nick were raped in prison that could open up a whole other can of crazy from people who are anti-gay. I honesty never would have thought DAYS had the guts to go there.

Personally all I want is to see Will & Sonny and any other gay character they bring on this show get a good story with lots of drama and not focus only on the fact that they are two men. Isn't equality what it's all about?

From Freddie Smith's twitter:

@freddiemsmith: I loved the scenes this week I was a bit nervous cuz I had Bell's Palsy during these eps some of you might have noticed that

@freddiemsmith: That's why there was no smiling from Sonny. Thank God it went away quickly though!

I was sorta hoping that they would do a male rape storyline as part of Jack's PTSD story but of course that storyline was canned because the idiots in charge wouldn't know a good story if it slapped them in the face. :flipoff:

Agreed. The last time Days was able to pull off a real rape storyline was Sami/Alan. Though no rape story written today could ever EVER compare with Jack/Kayla. Of course back then rape was actually treated like the serious crime that it is. :shame:
