It was very difficult for Nico to go back.  So on one hand, he really did want to go back.  On the other hand, prior to his accident, he had been a star athlete.  He was a varsity soccer player, varsity golf player, he was a child that could throw any ball of any kind, and it would go exactly where he wanted it to go.  So, to go from being this handsome, popular, mega star, to someone in a wheelchair was very, very difficult for him.  He felt like he no longer fit it, like he was no longer part of the group.  I think the group made an effort to reach out to him, I think they did see him differently, but they did kind of try to accept this new person.
