Quote days78: I think EJ got Jensen out to get Nick but how could Rafe get mistaken for Nick from behind? As Jensen pointed out he was very familiar with Nick from behind and Rafe and Nick have very different builds that wouldn't be mistaken for one another.
The other unanswered question is did Nick see Rafe beaten in the alley and take the muffin from him to give to Gabbi and leave him there to die? I think this s/l is far from over... at least I hope it still has legs and twist and turns to come.
You've got some very interesting points here, days78!
The first thing Jensen said to Nick was that he (Jensen) always would recognise Nick's behind! Unless it was really dark in that alley, why would Jensen attack Rafe for no reason..... Unless he knew about Nick's scheeming against Will and wanted to frame him!? But why would he do that unless someone paid him? I don't think that someone was EJ. The look EJ gave him at the hospital might have been one of recognition, but EJ is a lawyer....... maybe he saw him in court at some point? EJ put two and two together and walked towards him, but Jensen was gone.
EJ is with Samantha now and wouldn't do anything to destroy their future together!
As for Nick, I haven't really thought about it before you raised the question. He could've been the one stealing the muffins. Maybe he for a second was glad he didn't have to deal with Rafe telling Gabi.... and he just left him laying on the ground.
