Storylines[edit]

Nick, the son of Joshua Fallon and Jessica Blake (the daughter of Marie Horton and the granddaughter of Alice Horton), came to Salem to get to know his Horton relatives. Upon his return, his vast medical knowledge and intelligence are put to the test when he is asked to help find a solution to save Kayla Brady, who was suffering from a rare biological ailment. He succeeds in saving Kayla, and soon finds himself intrigued by Chelsea Brady, who is convinced he is just a geek.

Nick then creates an online identity for himself, and begins chatting with Chelsea in an attempt to get her to fall for him, even providing a picture of a handsome colleague of his when she pushes to know what he looks like.

Later, Nick helps Chelsea with a mission to get money to Shawn and Belle who were on the run with their daughter Claire in Toronto. Nick's clever and brave actions on this mission causes Chelsea to began to take interest in Nick as more than a friend and far less of a geek. However, only a few days after returning from Canada, Chelsea discovers that Nick was in fact her online love and that he'd been lying to her. She is devastated and sees Nick's actions as a malicious trick, and that Nick used the online lover to secretly mock her while she had been revealing her inner thoughts and feelings for the first time. Nick is crushed when she tearfully tells him that she never wants to see him again.

Hurt, Nick has an affair with Chelsea's mother Billie Reed, who, under the influence of alcohol seduces Nick. Billie and he both regretted it, and swore never to tell anyone.

When Nick saves Chelsea from getting raped by Dr. Reibert, whom she had been dating to spite Nick, she forgives him. Nick begins tutoring her in math and this leads to them dating and a brief period of happiness. However, Chelsea discovers Nick and Billie's one-night stand and their relationship is again in turmoil. Then, when Willow Stark accidentally sets Bo and Hope's house on fire, she panics and attempts to frame Chelsea by planting her hairbrush at the crime scene. At Chelsea's cry of innocence, Nick risks his medical career by stealing the hairbrush out of the forensics lab. Chelsea is so grateful, she is able to forgive Nick for his indiscretion with Billie, and they soon rekindle their romance.

Willow begins to emerge as a threat to Nick and Chelsea's happiness. When Nick stole the hairbrush, it left Willow as the only suspect for the fire. Nick feels sorry for Willow and lends money to her. Willow began to ask for more money, then Nick leases an apartment for her, gives her his credit card to buy the basic things she need to care for her and her baby. Willow uses Nick's credit card to charge more than the basics, then she calls Nick and blackmails him into giving her more money, credit cards, and all kinds of stuff. Willow cannot prove Nick stole the hairbrush but her belief that Nick did is enough for her to blackmail him.

Nick later goes to the beach to meet Willow and they get in an argument and a struggle that leads to Willow falling, and hitting her head on a log. Nick tries to revive her but to no avail. Willow is dead. He finds the hairbrush in Willow's possession and buries it in the sand on the beach. He calls for help. Nick is investigated by detective Roman Brady. Nick convinces Chelsea to go to the beach and destroy the hairbrush he buried. Roman eventually learns the truth, and gives both Chelsea and Nick a pass by closing the investigation.

Nick is also blackmailed by Kate Roberts into making Sami's amnio say that EJ is the father of Sami's twins.

Nick saved Sami Brady and Lucas Roberts from a bomb that Dr. Rolf planted, sustaining some head injuries in the process. While suffering from a concussion as a result of those injuries, Nick went to Las Vegas and married a woman named Cassandra Arvin, who was using the alias "China Lee." Arvin was eventually persuaded to sign annulment papers, but then she was arrested and went to jail for soliciting, leaving Nick with custody of her two sons, Artemis and Demarquette, for the 30-day duration of her sentence. Nick eventually deduced that Artemis and Demarquette were not really China Lee's children, a fact which she confirmed upon her release from jail. She had been hired to protect the boys, but she refused to take back custody of them. Nick bonded with Artemis and Demarquette, who have been calling him "Daddy" since first introduced to him by China Lee. At one point, a man named Umar Maboud came to Nick's home and claimed that he worked for the boys' parents and had been sent to bring them home. Nick didn't trust Maboud, and Jeremy Horton (who was staying with Nick at the time) successfully fought him off. Weeks later, Chelsea was abducted and was permitted to use her cell phone only to contact Nick, who was directed to come to a designated location, alone. When he did, the kidnapper offered a hostage exchange: Artemis and Demarquette for Chelsea. Unbeknownst to the man, the boys had followed Nick to the warehouse, but were able to escape. While Nick worked to avert the detonation of what turned out to be a fake bomb, Artemis and Demarquette were rescued by Umar Maboud. It was revealed that Maboud really was in the employ of the boys' parents, who were wealthy foreigners with many enemies. Having secured political asylum, they wanted to be reunited with their sons; Chelsea's abduction had been a ploy by the family's enemies. Nick agreed to let Artemis and Demarquette go.

Nick and Chelsea are back together. He helped Chelsea find proof that Ford Decker was the campus rapist. He and Chelsea broke into Ford's room in order to take photographs of his drugs and journal.

After the campus rapist situation was resolved, Chelsea and Nick grew apart because of her attraction to Dr. Daniel Jonas, and the two eventually broke up. Nick then began working on a research project involving alternative fuel sources and began a relationship with Max Brady's half sister, Melanie Layton. Nick ultimately began stalking her and was then revealed to be the killer of Trent Robbins, Max and Melanie's father.

On January 14, 2009 Nick was on trial for the murder of Trent Robbins. Maggie and Melanie gave testimony as to why Nick should not be put in jail for the rest of his life. The judge agreed and gave Nick the sentence of 2 to 5 years in a facility and 18 months for good behavior. Nick is thankful to Melanie for her testimony as Melanie tells Nick that she forgives him because deep down he is a good person.

On January 15, 2009 Chelsea comes from the hospital to the courthouse. Nick tells Chelsea he's sorry for everything and tells her to move on with her life. Chelsea tearfully tells Nick that he will always have a piece of her heart and that he can focus on getting better.

On August 27, 2012, Nick returns to Salem and still in jail, he has a parole hearing and after Melanie was recently kidnapped by a guy named Andrew, she doesn't know how she feels yet. After her family telling her not to do it, Melanie decides that Nick really has changed, but wants him to stay away from her. Nick is released and threatened by Chad to stay away. Caroline forgives Nick and gives him a job at the Brady Pub. Chad beats Nick up after believing that he has Melanie, since he had her scarf. Since then Nick has met Melanie's former friend Gabi, and they started dating each other. After meeting with his parole officer Gabi faints, but wakes up and Nick still takes her to the hospital. On November 14, Gabi finds out she's pregnant with her gay ex-boyfriend Will Horton's baby. Despite secretly being a homophobe, Nick agrees with Gabi and Will that he will raise the child, and that he and Gabi will get married. The truth comes out about Gabi's real due date, but Nick covers, saying that he had sex with Gabi the day they met. Despite Rafe's anger, the two remain engaged with everyone's blessing.

Nick and Gabi have a church wedding, but before they can be pronounced husband and wife, Chad objects, saying that Nick is not the father of Gabi's baby, and it finally comes out that Will is the father.

At a later date, Nick blackmails Will to give up his parental rights to Gabi's father, by threatening to tell that Will was the one who shot EJ. With several other people around, including Sami, Lucas, EJ, Sonny, and an attorney Nick brought, Will finally gives in and signs the agreement.

Subsequently, Nick and Gabi finally marry in a private ceremony. Only later does Gabi learn that Will gave up rights to the baby, but she does not learn about the blackmail, though Will tells her he did not want to do it.

Nick has continuing memories of something terrible that happened in jail, presumably involving another inmate, Vargas, who has recently been released to the community and is getting help from the church to adjust to regular life. The terrible thing is later revealed to be repeated prison rape by another inmate named Jensen.

Nick was kidnapped, along with Gabi, and held hostage by Jensen. Will and Sonny intervened and saved them, with Will getting shot in the process. Nick then tries to make things right, considering that Will almost died to save him, and agrees to have Will's name on Arianna's birth certificate. Nick tells Gabi the truth about his rape and about blackmailing Will.

Nick was fired by Kate in June 2013. In August 2013, when his parole was up, he was told to vacate the Kiriakis mansion immediately by Victor Kiriakis. Nick becomes obsessed with Gabi and gets her a modeling job in New York, where he will be as well, hoping that they can be together. Gabi yells at him for interfering in her life and he follows her to the park where he tries to rape her. Gabi hits him in the head with a rock and Sami and Kate help her get rid of Nick. Kate and Sami help Gabi drag Nick's body to the river where he briefly awakes before apparently drowning on November 27. On January 24th, 2014 Nick arrives at Gabi and Will's daughter's baptism revealing that he didn't drown.
