^ Whats been interesting is no matter what side the fence I was on since I started watching the show, anytime favorite soap pairings are asked about on MB's where soaps are not the main interest, Sharon and Nick are always mentioned as one of the favorites. Thats a testament to what Bill Bell saw in the characters, and its also a testament to JM and SC and their incredible multilevel of chemistry that changes and transforms in ways that is just unmatched, no other pairing they've had (and I've liked them with other people before) comes close for that reason. Its been an essential trait that really defines great soap dramas, and couples with the ability to tell many stories together. They have this with no one else, so in time they will be again. I don't doubt that, but I am just tired of nick's crap and Sharon taking all the hits while he's the good hero nothing ever touches. I just won't watch that anymore, b/c despite everything thats happened in the last few years, I feel its nick who's got a lot to prove in order for anything to work with Sharon.
