I almost didn’t recognize the incredibly bad-ass goddess of great hair. No sirree! I didn’t recognize her because she was whining, crying, sniveling, and begging Todd to forgive her for not telling him about their daughter, Daniella. The soap world has officially turned on its axis. Isn’t this the same woman who has repeatedly taken hits to her reputation to save Todd from himself and defended him in court against the indefensible? Isn’t she the woman to whom he owes his freedom? Isn’t he the man she found in bed with another woman after swearing he loved her? Isn’t he the clod who accused her of only wanting his money even though she could have stolen his fortune a thousand times over? Isn’t this the same woman who was willing to risk going to prison by pretending that she killed Lee Halperin/Janet Ketring/Carol Harper Dennison so that the police wouldn’t think Todd did it and send him back to jail?
Rather than begging Todd for forgiveness, the writers should have had her wake up and realize that Ross Rayburn (who, of course, was destroyed to make Todd look heroic) really was a better man than Todd. For a man who thinks that he makes magic happen every time he says that ‘family is everything’, Todd should remember that he gave a child away to be sold – without remorse and only because he didn’t think that the child, Jack, was his biological son with Blair. He was willing to let Blair believe that her child was dead. He may also remember that he plotted to kill Sam’s mother while he was in the womb, to get rid of her and him. I guess the fact that Todd recovered Jack (after finding out that Jack was his) and that he had a change of heart about killing Sam’s mother, Margaret, makes him a better person than Tea? It’s why SHE has to beg forgiveness, with him refusing it, and HE gets to be repeatedly forgiven for his worst behaviors.
The soap world is turning on its axis, and my stomach is just turning.
