Eric/Nicole was wasted and her character's writing is atrocious. It has been since they split Ericole. If this means less Daniel discussion,then good. Nicole needs a rest, but I wouldn't be against her returning down the road.
They aren't going to hire actors just because of his hack work on other shows. They even fired one that his writing fawned all over for years (JPL).
I'm pretty surprised by this. I wonder if it has to do with Shawn Christian being let go? I do agree the character was burnt out. It's a shame. The show is going to miss the character, even if they treated her like garbage. I know AZ had some issues with the Eric/Nicole pairing (or so I assume) but I thought they could have been magic.
So, I've been waiting for a night to binge this season of Outsiders (WGNAMERICA). Looks like tonight's the night. I don't plan to listen to false tales of highest electoral college votes, crowds that didn't exist, and how the Asshat in Chief is going to make America great by taking American's rights away, one signature at a time. Each time another group loses it's rights, they are planning to move on to the next group. #Resist
