Quote 2Wildroses: I still like Nicole, Most of the other characters on the show has all done something that they are not proud of. At least she dose not act like (I am so much better than the likes of women like you) Jennifer. I am sure she will end up forgiving Eric. He hasn't shown her any compassion , all she did try to help. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP NICOLE!
I think we all watch different soaps -or our likes or dislikes of characters skew our opinions.
I get that Niki can't forgive Eric so soon even though I had to say how in the world dare she not when she says she was a better person and to prove her new an improved personality that was touched by being in the annointed one's presence and humility all that didn't rub totally off? but then even working as the priest secretary she loved to use Gods name in vain, cuss in church and the rectory and almost had sex in same rectory, so her forgiving Eric, especially after he jumped down her throat again when he thought she was trying to set him up for that interview twice - this is their type of foreplay for Ericole.
I wasn't angry at Eric for accusing her of the crime because come on her past and the actions that happened shortly after along with him hearing her screeching confession in his church that she was in love with the priest and she couldn't stay away. Yes it was circumstantial and easily cleared up but then again this is Eric who is very very very judgemental has been from the day he walked back on screen. I haven't liked him as a priest and the character still hasn't won me over.
