I think it was a huge missed story opportunity to not publicly shame Minx for switching Brick and Channing at birth. Can you imagine a class-action lawsuit filed by Sophia, Lionel and the Wallaces? It could have been the biggest Capwell vs. Lockridge story SB ever did.
Maybe such a story was in the works, but Dame Judith Anderson wasn't in the best of health to play it? I guess we'll never know.
SHE DIDN'T LEAVE RIGHT AWAY. She spent night there and left the boat next morning. Here is the chronology:
1. Sophia provokes Lionel (yeah!), he kisses her, and after a short resistance, she puts her arms around his neck. She is in a yellow jacket, he is in a suit
2. A private detective instead of "good night" informs CC that the yacht is moored, but no one has gone ashore. CC breaks his cane in a rage and goes upstairs. Before that, he had remained calm and confident that she would come ashore before nightfall.
3. Lionel and Sophia show up the next morning. They aren't dressed like the day before - he is in a sweater, she is in a crimson blouse. Undoubtedly, she spent the night on board. And it's hard to believe that after Lionel's storm they fell asleep on a separate beds because Sophia was too lazy to go ashore previous night. If she had refused Lionel, she would have left immediately. She was always afraid to stay alone with him because she was losing control.
As for the fact that she's annoyed, it's typical for Sophia to pretend after sex that nothing happened.
4. After the fire, she fervently denied that anything had happened between her and Lionel (and it was truth). But now, after the boat trip, she makes it clear to Ted and Eden that it's none of their business.
By the way, she changed after that night trip. Whatever happened on the yacht, it restored her self-confidence.
But it's a hurtful that the important part of the Sophia's storyline has been stolen from us.
You're a fellow Canuck! Welcome! You understand my pain! I'll have a look and see what BFlix has, though I don't much enjoy streaming outside the "legal" platforms.
Reva has only really appealed to me during the Annie story, and even then, she's just a bit much, I agree.
