So: do we think the incoming writers have their hands in what’s currently onscreen?
Because all of a sudden, stuff seems to be happening. Eric and Nicole came back together in their second Near-Death Basement Experience in as many years, everyone’s acknowledging that Serena sucks, and Ben both planted a tracker on Abigail and found out about her tryst with Chad in like four days’ time. Nothing has happened in either of these stories for months, and now it’s like we’re racing to get somewhere. Ben going insane over Abigail at least has the potential to inject some life into that segment of the canvas, and it means he’ll be gone sooner or later, so I say, have at it!
Part of me — the part that hates myself, probably, but still — was sort of hoping we’d get a redux of Carrie and Rafe’s subtle Kelly Moneymaker montage while Eric and Nicole were trapped in that boiling basement. No such “luck,” though. Also, I know Nicole was delirious, but I cannot imagine being trapped with a half-naked Eric and still prattling on about Daniel. And then we had to be treated to that never-ending montage of all the romantic times he’s verbally abused her and forced her to groom him. So maybe the old writers are still steering the ship here…
