While my first post on this blog was about how much I loved Gabi and Nick together, I have to say that after watching the show since then, I may have to bite the bullet and retract that statement, given how Nick has been behaving in the last few weeks.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I think Nick and Gabi were (are) good together. However, it seems the anger side to Nick’s character is appearing more and more, which in turn is making me shake my head in disgust. For instance, Nick being angry that Will is having second thoughts about being in his child’s life is totally uncalled for. In the first place, Nick has no biological connection to said child, and secondly, Gabi needs to step up and control her soon-to-be husband in the decision making department. Last time I checked, it was her body, her choice, NOT Nick’s baby, so she should have the utmost say as to whether or not Will should be involved in the baby’s life, especially now that all of Salem knows the truth.
Secondly, Nick’s lack of controlling his emotions is clearly evident in the way he’s getting all annoyed with things Gabi says (for instance, the fact that Cameron could tell something was off with Gabi’s date of conception), and the way he’s trying to put Will in his place as to who the “real” father of Gabi’s baby is going to be (I mean, really, Nick, you don’t have to constantly shove it down Will’s throat that you are going to take care of the unborn child), and let’s not forget the way Nick practically scolds Will behind his back for being a gay man. Really, Nicholas, look in the mirror and judge yourself first before you start casting stones at other people.
With all these factors piling up, I have to seriously look at Nick and say, “have you REALLY changed for the better?” Maybe, just maybe, Nick, you need to watch what you say and who you say things to, because sooner or later, those words just may come back to haunt you. Frankly, it’s hard for me to even like Nick’s character again, because now he’s reminding me greatly of the Nick of the past—very shady and very controlling. He may even give Christian Grey a run for his money in the control department.
