nicole and R2

i just read on dayscafe that Nicole starts to enjoy R2's company.  i wonder if she'll figure it out.  i'm still betting on Chad.  just because he's mentioned the dimera's are weird like the Adam's family  and he aseked Stefano and EJ ones if they had secret tunnels!   

Also Maggie and Victor finally Kiss!  YAY! 

Does anyone know if they are going to recast phillip??
