Bye Bye Baby

Ummm… was Nicole expecting to give birth to a three-year-old?

That Santa suit is seriously big enough for a grown man. Or at least Lucas.

Snarking aside, Arianne Zucker basically killed me on Friday. Nicole’s devastated shock and then hysterical breakdown over the news that her baby is dead —


— it was heartbreaking. Those scenes were honestly almost too painful to watch. Nicole has been on my last nerve lately, with her asinine fixation upon a man who has made it clear he doesn’t want to be more than a friend to her, but this mess of a pregnancy could lead to some interesting new stuff for her. And it was a nice reminder of why this character and actress have endured long beyond what could have been their expiration date.

    “Big enough for a grown man. Or at least, Lucas”! Awwww snap!

    Seriously, though, what are they going to do with Lucas? Now that he’s made peace with Will’s sexual orientation and dropped out of the race to become Sami’s Next Top Manpanion, what will become of him?

    Oh, and back on topic, Nicole’s grief scenes were really moving. I was glad she dropped the campy villainess persona and showed some legit emotion.

      They are in dire need of more women in that age range. But most of the recent efforts — Rafe’s sister, Nicole’s sister, Sami’s sister, Madison — have been busts. (I think there’s a place for Carrie on this show, though.) Chloe was very useful as a third prospect in that age range. I think it might be time to cast Sarah Horton… who totally should’ve just been Sarah Brown.

      • Joanna Says:

        Agreed, on both counts. No more Hong Kong-based fiancees for poor Lucas, please.

      • Jayme Says:

        I agree. I loved those years when Hope/Jen/Billie/Kristen were all buddies. I’m all for seeing more of Maggie, but I feel like she’s been the go-to gal pal for a while now.

    OMG those costumes!!! I can’t!! So funny!!

    Not so funny? Nicole having ANOTHER miscarriage. That was so awful and sad! I was against the idea of her losing this baby so far along in her pregnancy, but it’s an interesting twist that could take this storyline in any number of directions.

    • mykleraus Says:

      It’s really, really devastating and upsetting, but I can see why these writers don’t want her happy with a baby and/or tethered to EJ in basically the same story Sami has. And it does amp up the stakes for her going forward.
