And now we have Felicia sitting there
with no Luke and no Mac (and Mac would be the biggest twit in the world to
take her back) and no story. It’s the same with Scotty.
I wish the show hadn't made Alexis and
Stefan relatives, because Nancy has her best chemistry with Tony Geary and
Stephen Nichols -- neither of whom was available for a long-term romance.
Even if Stefan wasn't Alexis' BIOLOGICAL brother, they were raised together
thinking they were cousins, but in a brother-sister relationship. For it
to be romantic would just be too yucky. And with Stefan leaving, I don't
see the point.
However, I love, LOVE the idea of
bringing back Robert Scorpio and giving a Robert/Alexis pairing a try…or
even pairing Jerry with Alexis. I don't think ABC/GH saw Julian Stone as
a romantic lead (I really liked him), so they could recast with a strong
actor. But if you take away the watered down (setting a bomb because a
minion of Jason's had him running scared -- arrrgh, and being domesticated
before we saw him be a slut) way Jerry was written, and go back to the
exciting, vibrant, eccentric character that made Jax look like a choir boy.
He could be a wonderful match for Alexis.
But Alexis needs to be with an actor that
puts her at the grown up table and allows her to play deep drama in addition
to comedy. Alexis has become a farce, and that's such a waste! I
don't see any point to rehashing Nexis. That horse died a long time ago.
Nexis was mishandled for too long to go back and get story now.
As for Sonny and Carly, yawn. I
know I'm in the minority, but I prefer Sonny with Mike and Jason, and Stone,
and Luke. He's too whiney around women. I am absolutely shocked at
how much I have enjoyed the Jax/Carly scenes. I can't stand the thought
of Jax saddled with another female that starts out in love with Sonny, so
there is no way I'd like a romance. But if Sonny weren't in the picture,
there could actually be potential there. I'm interested to see what they
do with Courtney -- if they actually give her a story and a personality -- or
if they simply give her a quirk or two, throw her next to Jax and expect it to
As for Kristina, I don't see the point;
she's just Chloe with red hair. Why didn't they just keep Chloe and have
her turn out to be Alexis' sister. It would explain why she had the
psychic connection to the Cassadine music box, was read books about St.
Petersburg, and felt an affinity for Alexis and Stefan. Sure she kissed
Stefan, but it didn't get past the point of disgusting for siblings who didn't
know they were siblings. Don't get me wrong, I really like Jamie Newman,
but I'm the redecorating, "know who’s naughty or nice within 3 seconds
of meeting them" stuff they are writing for Kristina is being done as
subtly as Angel always wearing white. Plus, while I like her singing, I
think L&B should be put to rest. Ned is much more interesting scheming as
a Q than isolated in the corner running L&B.
