  1. Theresa's version of Kim and Shane never bothered me. They weren't above reproach - no character is - and as written, their absences - especially during Theresa's cartel drama - weren't a good look. TPTB never had the actors really come back to show otherwise so it's not like seemed close to her nor caring about her welfare to counteract onscreen Theresa's claim about how she felt isolated from them. Different strokes, though. Anywho, on to current stories, the JJ and Haley stuff still doesn't click for me at all. They barely know each other, he comes off as creepy in his need to "rescue" her, plus having all these characters go hard for & against a character who is just 3 months on the canvas doesn't work for me. We barely know anything about Haley but we've got all these other characters willing to give up her life or destroy her life for their own reasons. Also, where did Melinda go? Shouldn't she be somewhere in this story instead of Ron going the white savior trope for Haley? Have we seen Melinda since the debate? (I've missed a few eps so I am not 100% sure there). IMO JJ has less chemistry with Haley than he does with Lani. Tripp has more chemistry with Haley but I'm hoping Claire kills both Tripp and Haley at this point. Gabi and Stefan have chem with BB playing Stefan too.

    David isn't an uncommon name. I know for story purposes, "David" will trigger Lani but it's nowhere near unique or rarely used name. If Lani had care about a non-David baby, they could've had her bond with Charlotte or any other toddler running wild in Salem. Ron ain't being subtle here, AFAIC.

    Jordan has a child that Rafe will go get and Lani will grow attached to. I guess Lani / Elani is finally getting a story. I hope I care about it while it unfolds cause Eli has some charm but Elani is flat to me and Eli carries Lani, IMO. So Jordan's big secret has nothing to do with Ben nor retconning his history. I figured that would be the case that Jordan wouldn't be the necktie killer which is why I decided to wait for more spoiler deets than to get worked up over pure speculation. I did hope she'd end up being Ben's mother cause that would make her killing her own mother less cold-blooded, but oh well.

    This is exactly how I feel. To me, it sends the message that it is ok to disregard Black women because viewers care less if they are screwed over on shows. For me, even if Maria hadn't been racebent, I would be salty cause I enjoyed her on OG Roswell as her own entertaining & core character as well as her relationships with Liz and Michael. That they made Maria a Black woman in Roswell NM then sidelined her so much they either don"t realize how bad it looks or don't care, is gross as hell. I am so tired of seeing Black women on shows being treated like they don't matter and I shouldn't be surprised this has happened on the watch of a Plec protege considering the deserved notoriety she earned for misogynoir with her treatment of Bonnie Bennett. I am also cynical in thinking that benching Maria for most of S1 wasn't solely due to the actress having filming schedule conflicts. Anywho, I want to see what develops with Michael & Maria going forward after the desert hook-up. Like Michael, I don't buy it won't happen again between them. I also firmly believe that Maria shouldn't have to be benched so that other characters can thrive. If that is the case, then that is a problem with the other characters and not Maria & she shouldn't have to suffer for it.

    Maybe. Ron was mad that NBC or whomever released the cabin photo with Claire in SOD then the cabin fire promo before the East Coast airing of Days happened. I don't know if it extends to bloggers/press being told to play it closer to the vest with spoilers. Also, yesterday should have been Tyler C's last ep so I expect Chloe to wake up in Brandon as Stefan's arms today or something like that.

    Considering Maria's barely had any screentime and even less story & development in this reboot of sorts compared to Alex, Michael, or pretty much any other character, that is a low bar IMO. I just dislike that Maria has been sidelined so much that instead of being her own significant character or core, I have been seeing her dismissed solely as some unworthy obstacle. As if Maria is little more than a day player. I want more for Maria and the character (+ actress) deserves better than what she has gotten most of this season. I thought Michael & Maria have very strong chemistry not to mention their banter is fire so it could be more going forward if TPTB want to nurture it and write for her or them. That said, I am reluctant to invest cause I don't trust the showrunner (esp knowing she is a protegé of Julie Plec) to actually put in the effort when it comes to writing for and integrating Maria into the main story. But I dislike seeing her reduced to being an interloper and it frustrates me how badly Maria has been treated by the show so far.

    I'm not going to sweat Jordan's secret until I see actual spoilers on it. Maybe it has nothing to do with Ben. Spoilers for next week have been somewhat stingy so far.
