There's a flirtation between Sally and Cass that could have been great.
I'm speaking of Sassy-Sally, (not Cailtin's-victim-dead-Sally). It made me think of the completion of an imaginary arc where Sally and Cass go through their mid-30s, establish careers, become good citizens, struggle with a disease, fail at a business, but be good parents, and finally find there way back to each other......
I'm intrigued by Cass's equal who neither wanted to change him nor homogenize him. Cecile was always looking over her shoulder for someone better, Nicole was always looking over her shoulder for the police to come and arrest her, Kathleen wanted him to be a Mckinnon, not a Winthrop, Frankie was a poor imitation of Kathleen and constantly put his life in peril. And Lily was more of a convenience than an end-game. Imagine if they'd pulled an "SFT" and brought back Sally for the final weeks? She would have been great for Cass.
Angelica McDaniel is a cancer to this show. And, arguably, far more than Barbara Bloom ever was. McDaniel is behind the show’s promotional rom-com shtick for the past several years along with the agressive introduction and defense of characters like the Rosales family. She also enabled JFP and Chuck Pratt to run amok. She may be good with game shows and talk shows, but she does not understand daytime dramas and one only needs to look at her “branding” of Y&R to see this. Y&R’s falling ratings are starting to tank B&B, which in spite of its own problems, had been fairly steady in ratings for about 5 years and had even regained ground it had lost ca. 2007-11. Angie has to go!
