What are your thoughts on the Season 2 episode Jimmy?
The episode Jimmy is a really neat episode, as well as very well-written, too. It aired on May 4, 2002, and is referred to as a "very special episode" because it deals with children and guns, and also bullying.
One particular scene that jumps out at me is when Jimmy showed up at the Community Center and, bursting into tears of anger, points the gun at Nick, complaining that he had had it with all the bullying he was subjected to, causing Nick to realize he had pushed Jimmy too far; Nick then apologizes, looking remorseful (and wishing he had gotten help for being a bully as well).
In my mind, even though he was a bully, Nick Connor showed that he was afraid of something - and in his case, it was a gun.
I hope that Nick's suspension goes on his permanent record.
