    Days Nick Fallon's new storyline!

    Friday, September 21 2007

    "Nick and his step-sons, Dee and Artemis"
    We've been treated to a brand new storyline from head writer, Hogan Sheffer, on our favorite soap, Days of Our Lives. With any storyline in daytime, it comes with its own special brand of rules, but most of us forgive the lack of reality because we adore the soaps, so!
    This is a low-down on what happened to Nick Fallon (Blake Berris) after he suffered a head injury during a bomb blast at Sami and Lucas' apartment.

    One fateful night in Vegas, the ever responsible, nerdy-loveable character Nick Fallon marries swindler, China Lee (Gillian Iliana Waters). When Nick comes to his senses, he asks China for an annulment but before he can sign the papers, he's saddled with two young boys, who we assume are China Lee's children. Still with me? Next, we find out that China has been incarcerated for soliciting and has to serve 30 days in jail while the kids spend time with their new step-daddy! After Nick recovers from the shock of it all, he decides not to call CPS, but take the kids home with him. Clever Nick gets to know the children and comes to the assumption that the kids can't possibly be China Lee's because they seem well educated, while China Lee is more street-wise!

    Soon we find out Nick is correct in his theory when China Lee returns to Salem after time spent in the pogey and admits she was only taking care of the kids for their powerful, and now deceased, father. We leave off with Nick's uncertainty and a stranger following the kids. At least Nick can take care of the kids now that he's suddenly a Science Professor at Salem U!

    What comes next? We'll have to tune in daily to find out!

    There is no denying that China Lee brings a breath of fresh air to the show while the boys, Demarquette (Jalen Stokes) and Artemis (Kwesi Boakye) steal our hearts just by being adorable!
    The only question is, are you digging the storyline or not? Now we all know that if this were reality, the police and CPS would have already been in on this case. It's completely unrealistic, yet the fact that nobody has called them doesn’t faze our characters one bit. In fact, for those of us who are long time soap viewers, we too tend to ignore the 'reality rule breaking' and simply enjoy the show, while others roll their eyes in frustration, thinking they're being taken for imbeciles! Which camp are you in?

    Here's what a few of our posters had to say about the storyline and the two little men. Perhaps you'll make your thoughts known, too?

    Goldenmango brings us a thread she calls, "Would Nicks "step children" make for some Juicy storylines?"

    "I'm thinking new characters, new scandals. Nick becoming the next Days, "Hero"...or...not. Should the writer's jump on this bandwagon?"

    LuAdanie replies, "I'm intrigued! I like where this storyline is going."

    LBowen has other ideas. "I think it's very cool what he's doing for those boys, but also it seems very unrealistic. It's hard for me to get into because it's so far-fetched."

    Oldayzfan thinks they (Dee and Artemis) are a much needed addition to the show. "I love that they're giving Nick an interesting storyline. I hope the writers spend some time on developing a good storyline with these kids. It sure would be a great way to bring in another powerful family dynasty. Perhaps one that will bring the Dimera's/Brady's/Horton's together."

    DAYSFAN1987 isn't too hot on the storyline. "I'm not sure I see the point to the storyline with Nick and the kids. They need to have Nick focusing on getting his career and life back on track - not taking responsibility for two kids that are not his. After watching today's episode - I find out they don't even belong to the woman who left them with him. She has to leave the country but is going to leave the kids with Nick. It just doesn't catch my interest - it's too out in left field for me to get into."

    All interesting thoughts and valid opinions. Care to share yours?

    I think the whole story is so implausible that it distracts from the already fairly implausible stories in DOOL. I agree with DAYSFAN1987. They are completely unnecessary and do not "steal our hearts just by being adorable." Now that China has told the story behind the already unrealistic story, it only spins further out of control. Get rid of this line!!

    Ok, so in the spoilers it states that two DiMeras are not long for this world, but they are keeping two uninteresting kids that have a boring storyline?! I also do not think that they are adorable...they actually are a bit irritating. It is so unrealistic to think that a 20 something guy would take on the responsibility of 2 kids that are not his. No guy would do that unless it was for a family member or someone close to him...definitely not for a woman he accidentally married in Vegas!!!

    I like this storyline thread. We know that our "Nick" isn't a conventional guy. Actually this storyline does have potential. Nick doing anything else would have not been our Nick. DOOL needs a strong father figure; albeit Nick is just a kid himself. I see that this can really good to watch in the future. These kids can bring their own brand of history to our show. Mr. Sheffer can do it with these two youngsters.
    Nick is a Horton.... he's got that genetic makeup with this family always being a "knight in shining armor" kinda stuff.
    I would love to see this mystery unfold and I can see him keeping these children if it comes to that. Even if they go back to their families I can see Nick always being someone they can turn to. Think of all the mileage we as viewers could get out of it; after all WHO is their daddy????? Where is he from; why would China Lee think Nick would be the right guy for this most important job??????

    I don't think Nick should have to take care of these 2 boys when they aren't even his or China Lee's.

    I'm definitely liking this storyline! Nick is so awesome with the boys, and the boys are absolutely thriving with Nick. He's a blessing to their lives. I think it's good for Nick, too. Yeah, it's a major inconvenience to be so young and to have to be responsible for 2 children 24/7, but Nick seems to be handling it well so far. He is definitely a hero!
