Sami Kierce In ‘Fool Me Once,’ Explained: Was Nicole Real? How Did Kierce Survive?



Before the series kicks off, Kierce had a love story that would make your heart ache. His partner in crime-solving, Nicole, was more than just a colleague – she was his lover, confidante, and the woman he planned to marry. The duo, along with their senior Pam, tackled crime on the streets of Winherst until tragedy struck. Nicole, killed in the line of duty, shattered Kierce’s world. Despite capturing her killer, Kierce lost his peace and spiraled into grief-fueled alcoholism.


Kierce’s Struggle with Reality

Kierce, battling a troubled mind and unwilling to confront his illness, postponed medical check-ups to safeguard his job. He confided in Nicole about his blood tests, indicating deep down he knew she wasn’t real. In the midst of delusions, Nicole emerged as Kierce’s alter ego, guiding him through the blurred maze of right and wrong. Lonely and lost, Kierce resurrected his deceased love to anchor himself in an increasingly confusing reality.


Cracking the Code

The turning point came when Corey, a whistleblower, exposed the dark side of Lambur Pharma’s drugs. Kierce, connecting the dots, realized the drugs were responsible for his damaged brain and Nicole’s illusory presence. In a moment of clarity, he understood that to secure a future with Molly, his current fiancée, he had to break free from his addiction and let go of his tragic past.


Justice Prevails

Kierce’s dedication to his job, post-Nicole’s death, led him to uncover the truth about Maya Stern’s involvement in Joe Burkett’s murder. Aware of Maya’s guilt, Kierce, driven by a pursuit of justice, chose leniency. His focus shifted from catching the killer to unraveling the Burketts’ web of corruption. Corey’s revelation about the Burketts’ Pharma scam unveiled the real murderer – Maya Stern.


Surviving Against All Odds

Kierce’s visit to the hospital unveiled severe brain damage, caused by Lambur Pharma’s pills. With Corey’s revelation, he ceased the medications, initiating the healing process. Fast forward 18 years, Kierce, having stopped the drugs, was not only alive but thriving. Molly, his wife, had given birth to a healthy boy. Kierce, having possibly retired early, embraced a peaceful life with Molly, escaping the clutches of his tumultuous past.
