The Kids Aren’t All Bright
I’m truly worried about the future of Salem, if some of the recent actions of its younger residents are any indication.
Will, for no reason at all and after having an incredibly transparent and dopey scheme revealed, admits to his husband that before his affair that caused a huge divide in their marriage, he slept with someone else. In what universe are we supposed to be rooting for this person to get what he wants?!
And then you have Sonny, who gets pissed at Will for the umpteenth time, then has a chat with his ex-boyfriend and comes home to let Will off the hook for his dumbass behavior. I can actually see through the bizarre scenework and understand what they’re trying to do here, but Sonny went about this in the most ridiculous way considering that he’s dealing with someone who hasn’t taken accountability for a single one of his actions in months and months.
But let’s not forget about Paige, who has reached some weird intersection between batshit crazy and hideously boring, with her scheme to reel in an older guy to… scare her mother into giving her a bunch of cash that she can give away to charity? I get that she’s acting out and just wants to hurt Eve however she can, but this was such a complicated plan for such a weird, fast payoff (literally).
At least we still have Abigail, who’s been remarkably consistent in just fucking anyone who looks at her sideways…
