Okay, so after two weeks of episodes of sheer torture watching my favorite couple under the age of 40 on this show, we finally seem to have gotten Chelsea and Nick back to a little more within character. I’m sure it won’t last long.
Nick seems to be himself again and that’s a welcome change, given the writers have been throwing him under the bus to pimp Jett (seriously the stupidest undercover cop on this show, and given the knucklehead moves of the Salem PD, that is saying something.) I would have liked their conversation to have been less on Jett and more on how sorry Chelsea was in Nick losing his job. No matter, it was some great stuff. Chelsea didn’t hesitate to call Nick and though we have China sinisterly waiting in the wings to reveal herself no doubt when Chelsea is back to wanting Nick again, at least I know that no matter how much they try to drown this couple, there is too much chemistry between Blake Berris and Rachel Melvin (and so little with her and Marcus Patrick).
I also would like to point out unashamaedly that Nick launching into statistics about the New Madrid fault to Jeremy was hilarious. Again, it proves even more that Jett is the most incompetant ISA agent since he’s unable to prepare himself with plausible excuses when he foolishly gets caught with his ISA contact who he unsuccessfully attempted to try to pass off as his fiancee. Nick can think fast on his feet and I floved Chelsea’s snickering during this scene. It might have really been Rachel laughing, but I do buy that Chelsea can get charmed when Nick lets his dorky side come out, remember how impressed she was when he was like a geeky James Bond.
And a geeky James Bond will always be preferred over a muscle bound James Boob.
