Helen and Nikki Relationship Chart (All Scenes & Mentions)
by Rivergal

Additional Research by E. Kline and Kerry B.

Like the main chart, the supplemental (OCD) version of the chart includes all scenes featuring either or both characters—but it also includes every scene where any other character refers to Helen and/or Nikki. These scenes are identified with the character's initials in parentheses in the "Who" column. The supplemental chart also includes scenes where one of the two (usually Nikki) is in a background shot but doesn't necessarily have a speaking role.

Parentheses (rather than brackets) are used for time-citations where Helen or Nikki appear only fleetingly, have no dialogue, or where the incidental dialogue which mentions them is minor. Dialogue concerned with the developing details of various subplots remains in brackets.
