Lord knows I'm not the biggest Lesli Kay fan, but I must hand it to her for literally willing Molly into being a worthwhile character. In other hands, Ms. Conlan would have been tossed on the scrap heap with the rest of ATWT's forgotten short-term villains.

I think it was Marlena de la Croix (maybe) who said Lesli seemed so much like an old school soap actress. I don't think the character reached her best until the pairing with Jake (I liked them a lot), but she really did make a lot of [[email protected]#$%^&*] work. I still remember that footprint she lugged around everywhere.

Kim, Ryan's Hope. I loathed everything about this vile brat of a character, especially the bizarre decision to constantly remind us of what a fantastic actress/singer/dancer she was (entirely offcamera). She hijacked the show and it was never the same.

I've always seen Kimberly as a sort of compromise on Labine & Mayer's part. Clearly, ABC wanted someone on RH who was young and glam, so that's what L&M gave them. Unfortunately, aside from the "Mildred Pierce"-ish plot with Rae and Michael Pavel, the show never knew at all what to do with her.

To me it wouldn't be somebody whose name we remember -- like someone mentioned the Hunter storyline on ATWT and I was totally watching ATWT during the time that character would have been on and I have no recollection of him or what he looks like or anything. It would be somebody who flopped so badly that the audience completely forgot him/her.

    • Please accept my apologies. Sometimes i get a bit loopy. The bad experiences i've had on here. Have done a real number on me. Thank you for the info.
    • I hope you buckle up and take Dramamine.  
    • Oh, I know. It's why I was be so adamant about anything on the Ericole roller coaster. 
    • Exactly!! No matter what actor is playing him, Nikolas has been sitting on the fence between  light and dark. And in the last few years he has been going dark, darker, darkest. That writing has definitely been on the wall. I thought it was very telling that Laura made a comment about her time on Cassandine Island that put that in perspective.   That was a great scene and Maura played that line to the hilt.    That is something I forgot to mention. The fact that while I too do not want Esme to be a heroine, I have to admit the actress is winning me over to her current state...the elusive tabula rasa. The audience is aware of who she is and what she has done, but in her current state, she has a remorse and common sense factor to her that does make her compiling in a way that Esme as vixen did not. One almost (note on ALMOST) do not want her to remember. That said...given SOD's February Sweeps info, it looked like she might be getting aimed at someone she should be aimed at, continuing to prove she should have never came out of that particular bubble of story. Even if the result if true, is typical of her current arc.
