I just don't understand why the show clings to this couple because they've proven to be far more interesting apart than together. I've missed some episodes but how awful was it that Cane was all high and mighty and on a high and arrogant as Lily panted after him? Ugh.

 

 

+1 Especially the bold part. That's how I felt too.

It's ridiculous to think that Jack wouldn't have had Michael go to court to rescind any wills and POA's that Dina may have signed when she was diagnosed with Alzheimers.  He knew that once his mother was in Genoa City that those documents would prevail.

 

That was what two months ago? Clearly, it was set-up as a plot-point - and a very bad one at that. In addition to voiding the previous documents (and getting a restraining order against Graham), due to Dina's diagnosis, the conversation about having one (or all) of her children appointed as health-care and/or financial guardians should have happened. Dina (like my mother) could've rejected it - and that would be a great material about personal choices of one's future. Of course, I don't have to deal with a gold-digger staking a claim. Haha 

 

MY needs to get a clue, Dina as the Grande Dame of GC would be a far better use of MA than this 'personal' story. It would be so different if the actor wasn't amazing and the character full of rich "real" history with ties to so many characters/families on-screen. The beauty of Dina is that she had a whole other life in Paris that could be mined for stories for years.

I think aspects of the show are good. I like the increase in conflict. Many of the characters are more interesting to me.  Dina's story is a mockery though.  Not only is her disease progressing too quickly, but making her an arsonist and a kidnapper?

No. Way more likely she would drive her car through Crimson Lights storefront and wonder why the breaks weren't working no matter how hard she pressed.

Mal has to change MA story and have it be that Graham has been drugging her to resemble Alzheimer symptoms.

 

+1

 

I'm really really disappointed they're wasting Dina on the alzheimer's story.

 

Is the actress who plays Sharon's mother still alive? They could have had Doris develop it as Sharon goes on a search for her father. Sharon takes on the care of her mother while trying to find her father. I get why MY chose Dina, I just don't like it.

 

Imagine if Jeanne Cooper were still alive, he'd probably have it be Katherine.

I think MY is hellbent on telling this 'powerful' story to 'raise awareness' on the issue, all the while turning Dina into a clown. He'll never do the logic thing ie have Graham drug her.

 

And sadly, I also have to agree he's hellbent on doing this. I haven't seen this weeks episodes so I don't know why Graham is back but why bring him back? Is Dina going to croak soon? I keep waiting for the dreaded day I read "Marla Adams Out"

I feel similarly. I like some of the conflict and some of the set up of that conflict but the one episode a day thing kind of ruins momentum to me. It actually wasn't a big deal to me at first, sometimes I didn't even pay enough attention to think about it being a new day, and I don't actually hate the idea, it's the execution of said idea that's slightly failing.

 

I don't love that the show feels like the women are all catty bitches to each other and the men are calling the shots and seem to be leading things. I know some will see it as 'strong' but I don't need a catfight to know a woman is strong.

 

I agree on the Dina story. I appreciate MY wanting to bring awareness to it, but I don't think he's really doing that, even if a lot of it is sadly accurate. Marla Adams was the perfect person to fill the void left by Katherine (and NO ONE can "replace" Katherine or Jeanne Cooper but MA fits perfectly in that similar role) and they're wasting it.

So I'm very critical of this show, so everyone feel free to bash me.  I'm an oldtimer from the 70's and 80's.  Have Lauren and Traci even been in a scene together on Traci's returns ever>>?  What the hell? 

And I'll add a line from Lauren when she was speaking to either Brad or someone where she said "Your very ample wife." Although it was better when I watched this week, people should know that Lauren and Traci = especially Lauren was a *ITCH, and when Traci is in town she never runs into Lauren???

Well then you love Marlena. On Days.  Beth Maitland is the one good thing on this show right now.  Have a seat.

I'm not going to. She has been only here to cry!

I don't recall... when Sussman started the Dina/Graham story... did she make it seem like Dina was being drugged/manipulated by Graham?

She kept her options open. (ie she probably had no clue what to do with either character)

Yeah, I liked that she kept it open...in case both characters took off...and when they did..she had Dina appear less off and more with it.

I find it hard to believe the Abbott’s really would’ve forgotten to take away all of Graham’s rights. That’s just silly.

 

I like Victoria’s new office.

 

Given the fight for CEO, and Dina rapid memory loss, I can see it being possible. I think Graham would be the last thing on their mind, and they probably didn't expect him to ever come back

I disagree.  It should have been the FIRST thing they did.  They didn't even know she had Alzheimers when they brought her back.  Why didn't they take her to see Michael upon return and put a stop to Graham's meddling?
