Is Days of Our Lives' Nick Really Dead?

By November 29, 2013

Follow me on:

blake berrisIs Days of Our Lives' Nick really dead? Was Wednesday, November 27's episode the last time we'll ever see the character?

The show's not saying, and neither is his portrayer Blake Berris.

"Can't comment on whether nick is still in Salem or not but keep watching. good stuff ahead #DAYS @nbcdays," tweeted Berris, two days before his character plummeted into the Salem river.

What are you thoughts on the subject? Weigh in with the following poll.

Oh lord I hope this schmuck and psychopath is a done deal. Yes please be gone for good pretty please.

(2) Joanne says:

I love Blake Berris, so I hope Nick is alive. Besides, if he is dead, it would mean Sami, Kate and Gabi committed murder.

This was a strange turn of events. I hope Nick is dead and gone. I hated him. I can’t belive Days turned him into a psycho again. whew. Really wish Jessica would come back after him and Shane and Kim Did with idiot Theresa. Was Blake planning on leaving days ? when is his contract up ? I hope he is gone for good. : )

I hope not, he was the only person in Salem who was disgusted with the two fairies that wanted to control Gabby.

Such hate Tommy…if you don’t like it, don’t watch and don’t comment. We don’t like haters on this site, so go away, you are not welcome here.

Please let him stay gone…he’s too warped for anyone. Let the girls rule. Let Kate and Sammi maintain a close and loving friendship from now on.

I cannot stand Nick he is a pathetic piece of trash let him be dead ,but i have this awful feeling that he isn;t

Sammi and/or Kate will be tried for murder and just before they are sent away to jail, Blake will suddenly reappear. Just my take on it. :)

I I cannot stand the guy so I hope he is dwad

(10) JB says:

Nick isn’t dead. This is just the best way for him to get back at them. The scene at the river where he freaks them out…Kate’s computer screen…and I’m sooo sure there will be more. He’s a tech genius and will be ‘making things happen’

(11) Linda Robinson says:

I hope Nicks not dead ,I have always felt sorry for the yougin and I always love the Under Dog.I do believe that Sammi,Kate and Gabi should pay for their crime in this tragedy.Sammi and Kate ALWAYS seems to get off with MURDER.I would love to see Justice done on Days for once.I have been a fan of Days of Our Lives for 46 years and I have never in my life seen such confusion and vulgarness and cussing and same sex mjunk .I think you should go back to Families and love and honest people, showing the kiddos who’s coming up now that it’s not ok to sleep with your same sex and that marriage is between a man and woman not a will and sonny, but I know it’s just wishful thinking.Get it together Days are you will be losing a lot of viewers over this one.

(12) Anne says:

Well, nobody else was walking along the river in that section of the park, and if Nick floated downstream to the Ghost Town of Pine Valley, no one knows but these three. A lost earring can be, but obviously won’t be, easily explained by Sami–she was walking and combing her hair. But naturally, it will turn into three weeks of cat and mouse over if and how this beautiful gift from EJ was lost.

Normally it’s Sami, but I see the loose cannon here as Gabby. And I see Sonny being the first person she tells.

(13) Shelley says:

I never cared for this actor or the character from day one! It’s really time for him to go.
There are so many fabulous actors on this show! Give them a chance to shine. Where are the story lines and the real love stories we were promised???

Do what you have to, but bring Peter Reckell back!

Hope, Rafe,, Marlena, John, Victor and Maggie, Caroline Stephano, !!!! You have great actors here, use them!!!!!!!

Why tease us with Kim and Shane for only two days?

The same actors get huge story lines over and over and for some reason, the rest are barely seen????

(14) tommy says:

Voice of Reason I don’t hate anyone. I hate how their perversion is being portrayed as main stream America. It is vulgar and disgusting. It violates man’s and God’s laws.

(16) Donna says:

On one hand, I don’t like the character, but I think he will turn up alive. Otherwise, “Days” would not be the same w/out Sami and Kate.

Tommy tommy tommy what’s all this hate for at the end of the day love is love and before you even mention hell a person who goes to hell means another solider for satin see you there lol

Soooo not dead…

(19) Science gal says:

Saw the actor on a recent commercial for beer or zsome other product during a football game…maybe he’s branching out?

December 12, 2013 at 11:53 am
(20) Daysfan1 says:

I cant stand the guy who plays Nick! I feel like he is the worst actor ever to be casted on this show. If he does, in fact, come back, I hope that it is a different actor. Not to mention, he is very homely! However, i think ‘Gabi’ is very arrogant and not that pretty so they make a great couple. Hope that Nick never comes back, EVER!!!!

December 12, 2013 at 1:04 pm
(21) Rhonda says:

Nick is a horrible actor, I hope he is gone forever! He ruined the show.

(22) Sher says:

Please stop having sonny and will kiss. Ugh. I have to change the channel when they are on.

December 13, 2013 at 1:05 pm
(23) Nick says:

Tommy how is who I love hurting you at all? Better yet why is a “straight guy” watching a soap opera….? God doesn’t preach hate…. idiots do. This is what America is coming to :p

December 13, 2013 at 3:23 pm
(24) tommy says:

I never said I hate them, I hate how they are trying to poison the world into thinking Gay is mainstream…. Got it ??

As for God’s take on it Read what he did to Sodom & Gamora.

December 13, 2013 at 5:03 pm

Am having so much fun watching lately. Excellent comedy in the midst of all the chaos. I notice there appears to be a “comment war” against Tommy. He is expressing an opinion yet he is called a gay basher. Well I agree. Too many sloppy kisses between Will and Sonny and I feel the same about E.J. and Sami. I’m sick of violent rape type sex and mushy love scenes. Will and Sonny kiss more than any other couple on the show. I have gay family and friends so definitely not homophobic. How come no lesbians in town? That would
Bring more male viewers for sure since this is all for ratings anyway. Right? Just some of my thoughts. Leave Tommy alone. He expresses an opinion and gets bullied. Grow up! And you should worry about what God has to say. We all will meet our Maker someday and not only answer for the things we did but also for the things we didn’t. Rock on Tommy!

Come on Days give Nick’s character a chance!!!!!! He has come a long way with the story your writers keep throwing at him.His part is a better one than all the drug dealing crap on the show. Tune the bedtime romance down and get the DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH Days of Our Lives best show on the road to a family oriented show with better stories. Get some more exciting action going on with Stefano & Victor cranking up again. Time to get everyone after Kirsten trying to find her hiding out in one of the foreign cities Stefano always disappears to. Even one of the islands perhaps. Keep the story lines flowing instead of dragging on. Take off the drug characters not Brady though, Hospital Annie the busy body, Jorden, and a few others. Keep the original cast that really know their stuff. Get Bo & Patch back somehow PLEASE!!!!!!!!! Blessed be.

(29) littlebit says:

i agree there needs to be less kissing between will and sonny and alittle more honesty between people, it seems all there is lies and deception that gets old after awhile. telling the truth would be more refreshing.

i agree there needs to be less kissing between sonny and will. There seems to be alot of lies and deception going on, which truly complicates things. it would be refreshing to have someone actually tell the truth and show good moral values, just saying

December 27, 2013 at 2:52 pm
(31) lela says:

Bo is NOT coming back. I say hook Hope up with
A new Guy. Bring a few more new actors to stir up more trouble.

December 27, 2013 at 2:53 pm
(32) lela says:

Nick is handsome

December 28, 2013 at 12:02 am
(33) mae baird says:

I hope Nick is still alive he is a great actor ,makes the show !

December 31, 2013 at 7:31 pm
(34) Barbara Nichols says:

Nick has to return. You cannot leave 3 characters with murder over their heads for the rest of their lives. Of course, EJ and Stephano have killed a few and they are still not in jail. Just not realistic but then neither was Marlena begin possessed. But, the writers were loony back then. I am really sick of some of these stories—the Bo stuff is boring, bring him back or kill him off, Jennifer’s story is boring—I am about to agree with Ann the psycho human resource person, Eric is not interesting—-too pious—-seems like the writers don’t know where they are taking the stories—–just like each day they say “well, what are we going to do today”. They need a long term strategy as to where the stories are going. But, Nick cannot be dead leaving three main characters with murder over their heads. We need to move on here guys.

(35) Breal says:

Nick is alive. We saw him in Seattle over the holidays…

January 3, 2014 at 8:53 pm
(36) janlaine says:

I hope Nick is alive!! And I hope the old guy is a detective undercover and saw the whole thing, just waiting to catch the girls in a trap.

January 4, 2014 at 11:30 pm
(37) Audrey says:

I am still waiting fr Tony to return Noone really dies in Salem

January 14, 2014 at 5:43 pm
(38) Debbie says:

Nick is probably healing somewhere, plotting his next move. One of these days; Gabi will get a phone call from him and he’ll blackmail Kate and Sammy, yet only terrorize Gabi. Isn’t that the sort of story line the show usually does? There will be some sort of uproar since people are already starting to ask about him.

January 24, 2014 at 2:06 pm
(39) Nicole says:

Nick is alive and showed up at the christening…..I was mind blown when I saw this happen but then again it is Salem so….I knew he wasn’t dead but he seams different…

January 24, 2014 at 2:12 pm
(40) chris says:

Yes Nick is alive the actor mentioned how it was in an interview acting with the new Will. If that has happened Nick would have to be alive. ME Will started after Nicks death.

January 24, 2014 at 2:34 pm
(41) Rebecca says:

I am so glad they brought back nicks character. I just love to hate him! I can’t wait to see how he tortures Sami, Kate,; and Gabbi

January 24, 2014 at 2:35 pm
(42) DaysLove says:

Yess Nick is back…..Ohhh the blackmail that is to come….lol I think he Was taking the pics on Smith island with EH and Abigail

January 24, 2014 at 9:27 pm
(43) Anna says:

Since everyone is wondering rather or not Nick is back I bet you anything that he will either come back miraciously alive or a ghost to haunt the people who know that they killed him.

January 30, 2014 at 4:03 pm
(44) CeeCee says:

Tommy, I understand exactly what you are saying…perfectly !!!! Forgive those who “misunderstand” the English language…ignorance is bliss.
Nick, there are plenty of men who watch soaps…straight and gay..dolt! My boyfriend watches with me and he is far from gay….I guarantee it!!!’
