Nicole Jackson, The Killing
Nicole Jackson (Claudia Ferri)
Nicole was the manager of the Wapi Eagle Casion and head of the Klimish tribe. She was depicted as corrupt, and was involved in a plot covering up a murder. She repeatedly prevented police from carrying out their investigation, and her security guards beat one cop into unconsciousness when he poked around the casino without a warrant.
Nicole’s sexuality was alluded to when the two leading police officers saw her and her security guard Roberta fight, Nicole had earlier broken Roberta’s hand by smashing it in a door. The officers quipped: “trouble in paradise?”, “Maybe Bobbie isn’t just her pitbull”, “Did you just figure that out?”.
They later asked her what happened to her “girlfriend’s hand?”, to which Nicole walked away. Roberta then betrayed Nicole by implicating her in the murder plot after they insinuated that Nicole also shared a relationship with her previous head of security who took the fall for a murder Nicole had committed.
Beyond that the relationship was neither shown, discussed, or even hinted at. Nicole managed to get the charges against her revoked at the end of the season but was not seen again in the series.
