Loving a man (and being dumped) makes women in daytime C-RA-ZY!
Hannah attempts an overdose after Ford dumps her – this storyline should have been further developed. Despite its origin, it actually has redeeming social value. So it won’t surprise you that instead the writers seem determine to create a Starr-Cole-Hannah triangle just weeks after Hannah’s suicide attempt:
DAYS’ above board top cop Hope Brady decides to terrorize the men of Salem to make up for the fact that she’s been hurt and tossed aside one too many times – of course she’s under the influence of drugs. (Ignore the part where Sami is overly concerned about her rapist – repulsive, I know):
BnB’s Stephanie Forrester can’t stand the fact that Eric has never gotten over Brooke (er, long before he married Brooke’s sister) – jealousy is apparently synonymous with being homicidal in Bell’s ficitionalized L.A.:
To think… one of the first times Eric dumped Steph, she had a mini-stroke, lost her memory, and lived on the streets using Brooke’s mother’s name… Liz… yes, the same ‘Liz’ (Beth) whose death she’s now implicated in.
Way to go turning all that hatred outward, sister… if only the writers would either let Steph seek help and be cured OR be incarcerated. I’ll take either.
This one is a double feature! Stacy Haiduk as AMC’s Hannah Nichols (who may as well give up her life to save the man who didn’t want her, right? Hannah’s death follows what seemed to be an endless stream of mischief and mayhem when Zack refused to allow her to have his child, to replace the adult son they’d lost. It’s even weirder because he later became the donor for his wife’s sister, Bianca, and Bianca’s fiancee Reese – without telling his own wife of course. Where’s the fun in that? He’s not exactly protective with the seed. The man was giving his seed away… to everyone but Hannah that is… who then gave her life for him… see the circular thing going on here? Hannah should have either taken him over the edge with her, on sent him in her place.
Shortly after Hannah’s death, Haiduk re-appears in the form of YnR’s Patty Williams. Patty had her face surgically altered to look like her psychiatrist. Why? To get into bed with the man who married and then betrayed her, causing her to have an accident and miscarriage decades earlier. Those crazy romantic writers of daytime. Man do they understand a woman’s heart!:
Doesn’t every woman lose it when the man who cheated on her and even cheated with his father’s wife, marries another woman?
Patty becomes Emily and then returns to being Patty, who becomes Emily again – oh yeah, you read that right!:
The ultimate classic love starved psycho on the loose! The YnR’s/BnB’s Sheila Carter:
Does this blog really need a closing statment? I think I’ve made my point.
