For Brady, it was the fulfillment of his worst fears. Nicole’s error was putting herself in a position where she works closely with a former lover.
It turns out to be a very bad idea. The circumstances allow her feelings to grow, and it ends up disrupting her relationship with Brady. She should have foreseen the danger and realized that she would not be able to control her feelings.
Yet, many fans wonder whether Eric and Nicole are really meant for each other. Could the forbidden nature of the love explain the attraction?
Abe Carver (James Reynolds), however, pointed out that Nicole is not really in love with Brady. The fact that Brady has been very good to Nicole and Holly is what makes Nicole feel beholden to him.
Brady, for his part, was unable to control his raging jealousy and it spun out control. Learning that Eric still has feelings for Nicole was a big blow.
