I’ve been singing Zuker’s praises for months now so this will be of no surprise to anyone when I say this but she’s done it again!
Over the course of several days (no pun intended) Zuker’s Nicole has hit the depths of despair -crying out for divine intervention thinking about her lost child. She’s also reached the height of her insanity – carrying on a fake pregnancy, keeping her husband in the dark. At the same time she’s found a moment of calm and even keel.
Some of the character’s success is in the writing but most of it is in the actor’s delivery. Zuker’s comedic timing is nothing short of brilliant. Only Nicole would bring a peace offering of a box of donuts to the doctor she was so rude to just before.. Only Nicole would add that the sprinkles on top were to make up for the fact that she threatened to murder him if he didn’t keep her secret.
You just can’t get that kind of evil bitchy goodness anywhere else in daytime. Zuker makes daytime in general, DAYS in particular, worth watching. Long live Nicole’s reign as a Dimera. She’s found the place where she belongs.
