So With

Charlie Out, I See Echo Leaving also

So why Make Her Rex's Bio Mom. Why Not Have Roxy Had Twins, Sky & Rex

im Not Buying Echo as Maternal and these Grandma scenes with Shane Should Be Roxy

They Could have just used Echo In The Charlie Story And Not Of This Rex Mess

OLTL, and soaps in general, does not care about mother/child relationships. It's fathers only. Having Echo as Rex's mother was a splashy end to a stupid and constantly changing story. Now Echo will go and they can focus on the "real" relationships - Jerry ver Dorn and Bob Woods carrying water for talentless JPL.

I did like the Echo/Shane scenes but they were very short.

Yeah, I liked Echo taking a sudden interest in Shane's life and getting all nosey and very protective right off the bat. But I agree that there's room for some Roxy in there too, and more reason to play up the little rivalry they've already established. Problem is, OLTL seems so uninterested in these types of juicy little character driven opportunities. That's one of the things that bugs me the most about OLTL. They take the talented cast members and rich characters they have for granted, they don't dig deep enough, they play surface and they don't spread the wealth. For instance, 3/4 of a week may be devoted to Aubrey/Cutter or Tess/Ford/Starr/James stuff that could have been accomplished in half as many scenes. I really like the show's supporting players and it's almost a cruel joke how much I do and how they're lucky to get half an episode a week. The fact that Charlie is being ruined is a whole 'nother story.

It takes twice as much time with failures like Aubrey/Cutter and the Fords, because you need extra scenes where other characters are trashed to make them look better. Oh Tess is so annoying/Clint is so mean, I hope Ford gets them. Gee, Joey is so dumb and Clint is evil, I hope Aubrey gets everything.

I enjoyed the Echo/Shane scenes as well. I thought they had decent chemistry together and I also think they look like they could be related. I thought that Echo came off believable as Shane's concerned, proud grandma. I wouldn't mind seeing them interact together more.

I wouldn't mind if Clint got to know Shane better and developed a soft spot for him, in spite of his disdain for Rex. And in spite of not wanting Rex to be apart of his family. I think that if that happened, it could be interesting and could go towards "redeeming" Clint. I'm not sure how long this bullying storyline will go on, but if Clint started to get closer to Shane before the bullying stuff comes to a climax and the big fallout from that storyline, it could be interesting to see how Clint reacts to whatever happens to Shane.

    • Every time I see FV or LW interviewed about Carly's upcoming storylines, they always say "...and of course Carly stomps in and throws her weight around, because that's Carly being Carly!" Basically, the show has a specific, one-dimensional view of the character, and they keep it simple like that because they assume that fans live for Carly 'kicking ass' and being a 'boss.' And LW, who is both popular and polarizing, delivers on that characterization.  GH missed a trick with the Jason wedding. Jason has always been the one who got away. Sonny was kind of Carly's second choice back in the day because Jason never really wanted her. And Carly was able to suppress that rejection because she had Jason emotionally tied to her via Michael for years. She put up with being friend-zoned for +2 decades, but the wedding should have been the dam breaking for her, where finally, FINALLY, Jason was going to be all hers. Finally she had another chance to make him fall in love with her the way she had always been with him. And then Sonny comes back, and of course she HAS to get back with Sonny but... And thereupon we have new storyline of five people featuring Carly, Jason Britt, Sonny and Nina, and with Carly perhaps no longer willing to keep her frustrated desire under lock-and-key anymore.  And with Jason presumed dead, this could send Carly in a tailspin where she is forced to come to terms with having her 'second chance' with Jason nipped from her grasp. Anyhoo, I'm doing what a lot of viewers do which is "If I was HWing this sh!t..."
    • I wouldn't put the demise of Miami all at Adriana's door. She wasn't the only one lying -- Joanna marrying Romain reeked of insta-TV wedding. Honestly, I blame production for pushing 'Duelling Weddings' as THE ONLY storyline sustaining 16 episodes. Weddings aren't quite the draw Bravo thinks they are, and it was boring watching hours of these chicks trying on dresses, etc. Season 3 suffered from: -a reduced wider cast; -No Mama Elsa (a major factor IMO); -no lightening-rod Karent; -increased toxicity amongst the women.  By the end, most of the cast clearly couldn't stand each other, or were drumming up a bunch of insta-fights (Lisa vs Joanna, Marysol's never-ending hounding of Lea). Lea was ready to peace out of the franchise altogether before it even ended. Reunion was a disaster because the rest of the cast were desperate to make S4 happen and just threw anything at the wall to see what stuck. Adriana, whatever you may think about her, was highly dramatic and a big pot-stirrer. I think she deserves a spot more than Larsa, but we will see how the Miami reboot shakes out. I do worry that we haven't seen any trailer or promo for this, unlike RHUGT which was trailed over a month in advance.
    • It helps that Ben doesn't have a long history with John (they've barely interacted) + it plays into the stroke John had which led to him having outbursts. So it's not completely out of the realm that Ben would believe her and even think it was possible because of above factors.
