Bless you all for pointing the HUGE lapse by the writing team. I really did a double-take. There is absolutely NO WAY that Reed/Charlie/Maddie don't know who's who. Reed might get a slight pass, but Charlie/Maddie? Not even to ask the question when the name 'Reed' came up - because there are so many Reeds in GC. Even with the Mac/Billy/Jill connection?
Another example of making something 10x harder. Like the convo between Reed and Charlie or Maddie would've changed in any substantive way - except been better.
Maddie to Reed: 'Your mother works my dad so hard, I never see him.'
Reed to Victoria: 'I can't believe your lead model's son is such a blockhead.'
Charlie to Reed: 'As a Newman, you must be pretty dumb if you couldn't get into WG.'
If we're going to pretend Lily got preggers at 12 and birthed them at 13, pretend they interacted/grew up together before Reed moved.
Very Pratt-like promo - at least there's action.... BUT all predictable:
1) who didn't see the harassment suit coming;
2) of course Chloe injures the man drugging and holding her hostage
3) unless there is an amazing twist, Dina's secret isn't a secret since her obvious tell when Ashley mentioned John's death.
The Abbott family scenes are so easy to write with 35 years of onscreen history - just do it! It's criminal that only Abby remains from the 2nd generation with only 2 other living children. What a colossal error by every writing team from the past 30 years. Nikki's miscarriage ranks #1 - that kid would've been in the middle of everything - more so than Abby.
