He wants that property. The only reason he doesnt have it is bc Thomas is funding Sally, so if he goes back to Caroline, Spectra's cashflow dries up and he can sieze the land for his building. His motives havent changed from where they were a few months ago (even though he genuinely does care for Caroline)
I am not watching French episodes as I follow US episodes so I have already seen 2014. But I have watched for years before the Internet era. Ratings were not good and recently the show (which aired at 2pm since 1989) was moved to 11am. I know my grandmother stopped watching.
The well-aged Skeet Ulrich is a regular on Riverdale next season so I guess I def have to keep watching. He does have great chemistry with Mädchen Amick and they were smart to start leaning on the adults more.
