Okay, so thanks to today’s show, Jett telling Chelsea that he might lose his job because he blew his cover as well as Chelsea’s reaction to said confession made me angry she didn’t have the same reaction immediately after Nick told her he was fired. So I have decided to do a performance review of both men and compare them.
Employee: Nick Fallon
Company: Salem Hospital
Profession: DNA tech
Single handily found cure to save Kayla Brady Johnson when she was found to be allergic (and dying) from biotoxin anecdote.
Proved bones found over Christmas were the father of Mimi Lockheart.
Helped in the firing of one sexist harrassment jerk who was his boss: Dr. Rebert, making the lab a better place.
Stole hairbrush from lab to protect girlfriend.
Only pretended to run tests on DNA from Samantha Brady’s babies.
Fired (after confessing)
Nick takes full acceptance of his failures. Though she is not fully at fault, his girlfriend Chelsea was certainly responsible for the hairbrush scandel as well as indirectly responsible for the Sami twin fiasco. Instead of letting Chelsea know he was fired because of her, he keeps it to himself until she forces him to admit it. Later when she tries to awkwardly admit her own part, he doesn’t allow her and actually cheers her up about the whole thing, including how his own parents must feel about her.
Employee: Jett Carver
Profession: undercover agent
Managed to hide behind a curtain and finally heard his suspects discussing their crimes Voided due to item below
After months of investigating current smuggling operation, agent is unable to tell ISA exactly who is involved, what is being smuggled or how much money is passing hands.
Becomes so attracted to coworker, he quickly makes up a fake fiancee but uses his married ISA contact with her REAL name.Unable to come up with viable excuses when caught in compromising situations.
Used his handcuffs while undercover (issue here is not that he used them but he had them at all. It’s a rule that undercover operatives do not carry government regulated equipment).
Told his cover to Chelsea Brady because she said he was a liar!Told his cover to Max Brady and unsuccessfully leaned on him to become a narc (and was rightfully laughed at by M. Brady).
From Above: Though he knew very well that M. Brady accidentally alerted Jeremy Horton that operative might be affiliated with the law, agent was not prepared when main suspect (J. Horton) confronted him some time later.
Inquisition held, pending
Though sheepishly telling his uncle he messed up, he declared to Chelsea that by putting her first, he may lose his job.
