Quote bghwme: I think they can make a compelling storyline with Nick. Nick's mother, Jessica; I believe once suffered from D.I.D or Dissassociative Identity Disorder or "split personality."
This tends to run in the family, and in her case as well as Nick's was brought forth by the use of certain prescription drugs. I believe it also happened to Hope when she was doing prescription drugs. This mental illness can also be brought on by a certain traumatic event in one's life.
There is a story here about 2nd chances, about recovering from addiction, and about addicts and their sponsors...which in this case; I think perhaps BRADY would make a good sponsor for Nick. Brady is more of a leader and his backsliding and being tricked out of recovery has been done too much. Time for him to help someone else with their recovery, and that; in turn; will help him develop as a character.
We could also have a romance between Gabby and Nick.
As for Melanie, I don't see why we have to lose MELANIE as a character just because MOLLY is leaving the show. Why not just hire another pretty red-head to play the part?
Really good idea's with Brady being Nicks sponsor and why not re-cast the part of Melanie just because Molly wants to leave Days when her characters s/l is picking up why do we have to lose another character. Great points!!
