Bang bang – Nick’s hit
The question is: who pulled the trigger and wants him dead?
Weekdays SABC3 (*193) 22:30
Nick Fallon’s (Blake Berris) time is up. He is shot on Friday 7 July and dies on Monday 10 July, but before he takes his last gasp, Nick tries to point out his assailant. Since no one is singled out, Salem is on high alert and Detective Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) begins her investigation, trying to figure out whodunnit.
FORM AN ORDERLY LINE
Suspect #1 Nick tried to rape Gabi (Camila Banus) in January 2017 but she bashed him over the head and left him for dead in the river with help from Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Kate (Lauren Koslow). He returned from the grave with blackmail material, giving Gabi every reason to off him… again. Suspect #2 Sami didn’t want Nick dead for blackmailing her. Instead, she was ready to kill Nick for gay-bashing her son Will and his hubby Sonny (Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith) in August 2015. She hired a hitman but on Friday 7 July she tells EJ (James Scott), “I can’t sit waiting for the hitman to call and say he’s killed Nick!” Suspect #3 Abigail (Kate Mansi) wants to off Nick because he knows about her affair with EJ. She will do anything to protect her reputation, but does that include murder? Suspects #4 & 5 Married couple Will and Sonny have been bullied to breaking point by nasty Nick who also threatened to take away their daughter Arianna (Harper and Sydnee Udel). On Thursday 6 July, Will tells Nick, “I will kill you.” Suspect #6 Does Nick have dirt on everyone in Salem? He sure does – even Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) has crossed the law and Nick knows all about Lucas breaking into the cop shop and tampering with evidence in June 2015. Suspect #7 Detective Rafe (Galen Gering) always thought that Nick was unstable and on Monday 10 June he smirks, “Nick was a problem to a lot of people in this town, but now he is dead. So those problems are gone.”
