Nicole follows up on her theory that EJ had something to do with Rafe's accident and personality change, but winds up discovering a whole lot more about her husband than she expected.
"Nicole is good at finding out information on people," points out Arianne Zucker. To that end, she's in the right place at the right time on the pier and overhears Vivian and Gus discussing who was being held in the DiMera basement."She calls someone she can rely on and is able to get the report back that Rafe was in the basement," previews Zucker. "So now this person she's fallen in love with again has become this creature. This is where she starts piecing it together and believes there was no accident: They're brainwashing Rafe."
Nicole confides in Chloe about her theory and realizes that Fay figured it out, too. Determined to learn the truth, Nicole heads home, where she finds EJ and Taylor locked in a passionate embrace. "The door to the living room is sort of open and there they are, having their moment," sighs Zucker. "It's shock and an 'I knew it' kind of feeling. There's anger, disappointment, embarrassment and frustration. And the betrayal from both of them, of course,"
Rather than confront them, Nicole decides to keep the information to herself so she can collect her thoughts. "It's a whirlwind after everything she's finding out," explains the actress. "Not only is there this whole situation with Rafe, but EJ's having an affair behind her back -- with her perfect sister? How did that happen so fast? She knew something was going on at the wedding, but she didn't want to believe it. And now she can't believe he continued to stay married to her and allowed her to feel what she did for him."
A reeling Nicole realizes she has the power over her husband and decides to use it to her advantage. "She wants them to pay," declares Zucker. "She's going to make the two of them suffer a little bit for making her feel this way. She wants them to tell her what they've done. Nicole isn't going to win him over. She's so hurt that this happened to her. She'll never trust anyone again. She feels that hole in her heart again. This takes away from everything she wanted in her life."

When you think about it, this really does confirm that she's a perfect Dimera wife. Don't get mad - get even!!! I feel terribly sorry for her, but I'm super pumped to see her getting her backbone back. If May turns out to be half as good as it looks like it might be, we are all in for quite a ride. *fingers crossed*

I am so ready for this. I love that she is going to play this close to the vest. I really almost wish Tamara wasn't coming so Nicole could tear poo poo face a new one. She's the one I want to see suffer for all that she has done to Nicole since soming to Salem. Some sister. Hmph!
