An intriguing rumor that is doing the rounds of the internet soap sites at the moment is that Blake Berris, who portrayed Nick Fallon from 2006 – 2009 may be headed back to Salem.
Nick is a Horton, by blood. He is the son of Jessica Blake and Joshua Fallon who met and married on Days of our Lives in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Of course Jessica and Joshua’s road to marriage wasn’t easy with Joshua being a suspect of the Salem Strangler killings and Jessica joining a nunnery after discovering Sister Marie Horton was her biological mother who gave her up at birth. Jessica went on to develop multiple personalities and become engaged to the actual Salem Strangler, Jake Kositchek.
Once in Salem Nick fell immediately for Billie and Bo’s wild child daughter Chelsea Brady. Though Chelsea was happy to have Nick as a friend (and use him) she wasn’t initially interested in him. Nick used the name and photo of his handsome womanizing boss to try woo Chelsea online. It backfired when Chelsea learned the truth and began dating his boss.
Nick eventually got over Chelsea and developed another “crush” like infatuation. This time on Max Brady’s newly discovered sister, Melanie Layton. Melanie too was happy to use Nick, but the tables turned on her when Nick took a bullet for her, developed a pain killer addiction, killed Melanie’s father (thought to be Trent Robbins) and let Melanie believe she had killed her father in order to keep her beholden to him.
