Eric preaches from the pulpit
Over a decade after leaving Salem, Eric comes home with a new career and a fresh outlook but still harbouring unresolved feelings for his ex, Nicole!
It’s been 12 years since Eric Brady left Salem so it’s a huge shock for Nicole when she suddenly runs into her ex-boyfriend in Horton Square. Regardless of their tense break-up over Nicole’s sordid past as a porn star, she’s still glad to see him – however, he’s a little aloof towards her.
Discovering that during his years away working as a missionary in far- ung places like the Congo Eric (Greg Vaughan) became a priest, Nicole’s amazed to hear that he’s now in residence as the head priest at St Luke’s Catholic Church in Salem! To Nicole’s astonishment, Sami (Alison Sweeney) advises her twin brother to steer well clear of the scheming witch who wrecked his life and so many others!
Unable to act on Sami’s warning when he sees a depressed and lonely Nicole crying in the park over her baby’s death, Eric begs her to let him help her back at the rectory. In the solemn privacy of the confessional, Nicole lets her guard down, revealing all of her misdeeds since Eric’s been gone. Offering comfort, Eric gently says he could never hate her – but can’t condone her actions, either. Watching her leave, Eric promises Nicole she can change for the better if she wants to... and he’ll help her do it. It’s clearly a sign that Eric still loves her, even if only platonically! TVS
