A few months ago, when all storylines were stalled and the show was pretty much easily rated as boring, the only thing that had momentum and could hold your attention was Chelsea and Nick. Their story was moving, well warp speed, but Rachel Melvin and Blake Berris really had a chemistry that sparkled. I loved the pairing before but was 100% sold during the abysmal Shelle on the run storyline where they traveled to Canada.
Now fast forward to early summer (okay, technically still Spring) and the rest of the show has vastly improved. Storylines are moving and I am riveted to almost everything else. Now look at Chelsea and Nick. Though still have my attention and RM and BB are bringing every scene but I am finding their story is pretty much maddening and inconsistent.
I can understand Chelsea still having issues with Nick and her mom. I thought they “brushed” (heh) by this way too fast before and it’s time to really confront it. However, I don’t buy Chelsea breaking down and telling nearly complete stranger, Jett, about it. Also, her discussion with him today about how she admits she is trying to convince herself about how awesome Nick is in direct contrast to Hope last week. I want to think her confidence in Nick has been shaken with Willow’s death but shouldn’t that have strengthened her trust in Nick…because of the lengths he would go to for her like going to jail?
Nick’s side is more understandable. Okay, so the missed phonecall bringing on the drinking binge was a bit over the top but given Nick’s discussions on how girls have treated him in the past, I can totally buy him worrying about every little thing that does or doesn’t happen with Chelsea. He was dumped before when a girl had a “better offer” and he now is worried Chelsea has that with Jett. Hell, I worry about that too. I can relate to that story and it makes me root for Nick even more.
The last thing is the whole “sleep” with Nick thing. Last week, Nick was putting on the breaks on it and letting their first time be perfect. Though I admit sleeping in a dead hooker’s apartment seems to kill the mood, it’s really the first time he’s brought it up. In fact, it’s the same day since he brought it up. Why is Chelsea telling Jett that Nick is all “pressuring” her about it? Then they fight about it today. It’s lame in my opinion. And makes me want to actually FF for the first time ever. It also scares me that they will in fact “do it” and it will be horrible because neither was in a good place for it.
Don’t get me wrong, again, RM and BB are doing an awesome job. I just hate the convoluted story stuff today. What do y’all think? Tell me I’m wrong and I’ll be glad to hear it cause I frequently am.
Oh, good news though? Steve is back! And he brought Adrienne!!!!
