It wasn't money or upnringing why I think Devon is dating down. I don't think Mariah has anything going for her but this down to earth, grounded, authentic persona that they recently gave her to contrast to look better up against Hilary who they've made some spoiled rich undeserving diva. All of a sudden Mariah has a disdain for money when we saw her on a paper chase last year with Natalie and Kevin. Sorry...do. not. like. Devon can do better. And not cause of money.
There are so many things they can do with Devon now that he and Hilary are broken up besides have him go on awkward dates with asexual Mariah.
I really hope they take this opportunity to give him purpose besides fawning over a woman. The rec center is a great idea. He can mentor at risk youth.
After Kay died, Devon went to Victor for advice. But nothing ever came of it. I think some are insulted because he chose Victor instead if his own father Neil. I remember consists about that.
Agreed. It made no sense to age them 3 years within a year and send them off to college. IMO, the only actor worth keeping is Kyler Pettis as Theo. The rest are just terrible and I fast-forward them 90% of the time. I couldn't even tell you what's going on in Joey/Jade land because I haven't watched one minute of it. Meanwhile, the actress who plays Claire had potential, but her character's obnoxious behavior has brought out traits in her as an actress that is quite irksome.
I wish they'd build on the Carver family more so. Recast Lani with someone more dynamic and let's see an actual father/daughter relationship with her and Abe. I'd also love to see Jonah Carver return (Thyme Lewis, who last played him in 1997, has held up well over the years). Add to that, there was his girlfriend Wendy, her son Benjamin, etc. etc. etc. All these people from the past with no blood relation to others on the canvas, which means romantic possibilities in Salem are endless.
The thing with Carlivati (which I really like) is that he is the kind of writer who would totally bring these characters back, even if briefly, and played by the original actors if they can get them.
He can be saved but for me, for some reason, he's becoming more unlikeable by the minute for some reason. I think Claire could be saved too. She was NOT this bad when first introduced.
It also would help to get them out of their bubble. Theo almost never has scenes with Abe, or Lani. Where's his POV? Putting the younger ones in scenes with the vets would go a long way. But it hasn't really helped Lastovic, so ...
