Caroline is beyond irritating. I can't stand her. I think it's ridiculous that she changed the results and I couldn't believe her reasons for doing it. She was acting like a total nut today. Can we please get back to the days when she was just a nice little old lady who babysit the kids, made clam chowder, & had motivating pep talks with people at the pub?

^^ Actually, I can buy Caroline's excuses - in the Days contextual world

First of all she's royally PO'd that Victor isn't pining for her anymore. She liked being the Brady Martyr with a taste of Victor on the side, and now Victor has his interests elsewhere. And we can be pretty assured that it's not about Vivian at all - she's angry about Maggie. Caroline has already taken it out on Maggie a couple of times and shown that she's all screwy on this point. The rest I'm able to see as justification after the fact, but Maggie is the real issue.

And from a writing POV it's rather clever. Here's Maggie - the woman we all love no matter what. What can they do for a storyline? Not much, as has been shown over the years. She had her mate and that was the end of it. Suddenly Maggie is the new central character and they have conflict all around her. She's got a new love interest, and two jealous ex-lovers of the man who rather than accepting the fact that he's moved on are using Maggie and their excuse to act out. And she's a centrally placed figure for the younger Kiriakis crowd. I also got the sense yesterday that they will have Magic involved in the Bope prison mystery/reunion. Maggie is the word, and Caroline is now quickly becoming the anti-Maggie.

It might not be great, but it's a story with the old guard that doesn't involve babysitting. Anyway you cut it, it's bonus time for the 60+.

This Caroline twist is so stupid! WTF? :wacko: Caroline knows how to hack into hospitals now? [Keyshawn Johnson]COME ON, MAN![/Keyshawn Johnson] And how did Caroline know that Philip slept with Chloe? Did Steph tell her?

Also, she sounded like Helena Cassadine!

Yup. I want that Caroline back.

Traditional Caroline has no personality. I don't even like the character much, but I want better for her than babysitter/chowder whore.

I gladly await the scene(s) where Sami calls Caroline out on her hypocrisy. Nobody gave it to Sami more than Caroline when Sami would be a schemin' and a plottin'. Now the shoe's on the other foot!

She could serve up a nice cup of tea, too. But then Victor can tell ya all about her teabagging specialties :lol:

And this is better? I think it's out of character for her switch the paternity results because she wants to Stephanie to be happy. And her whole spew of "the world doesn't need anymore Kiriakis'"....WTF.

Yup, just another part of Caroline's destruction and to get more people to hate her. But I see what TPTB are doing - destroying one character to prop up another.

You know, how many people in Salem in the past had the power to change DNA results? I don't remember hearing all this "Caroline's destruction" when JER was writing for Days. What story did she have then? She sat around doing nothing, like some others in the over 60 crowd. But now it's a problem?

I love it, especially her bringing up her affair with victor and Bo's parentage. She said she wished that could have remained a secret forever. This just didn't start overnight, IMO, and it gives her something juicy to do instead of smiling and offering folks something to drink when they come into The Pub.

Hell, I would bet against the fact that she will probably have something to do with something else. But her character destruction? No, we see that totally different.

Then why didn't she switch the paternity results for Sami when she was pregnant with a Dimera? Why wasn't she thinking of Sami's happiness? Why didn't she help keep Carly away from Bo, why isn't she actively doing that? And how does this make any sense logistically? How did Caroline switch the results? When did Caroline find out? How is this plausible? How come she hasn't done anything bad like this for the past 20 years?
