Feel the Burn
Abigail, I know you aren’t exactly in your right mind at the moment, but I feel like there might’ve been other ways to come at this.
Like tying Ben up and getting the hell out of the house. Like calling the police (or your brother, who remains very committed to that Halloween costume of his). Like getting your baby out of the house before you burn the damn place down. I do appreciate the commitment and the intensity, though.
They’re really giving Kate Mansi material she can sink her teeth into, and they’ve managed to elevate Abigail into leading-lady status, which is no small feat. Whoever steps into the role next is going to have meaty history to play.
Also getting interesting character material? Steve and Kayla.
I liked that they pulled a flip by having Kayla upset at Steve’s glib reaction to the charges being dropped, even as what made her realize she loves him is the fact that he was willing to sacrifice himself for Joey. And it makes sense — Steve’s penchant for danger has invited a lot of craziness into their lives. Kayla has always been one to roll up her sleeves and get her hands dirty, but she doesn’t seek that kind of thing out; the fact that Steve does probably has a lot to do with his chaotic upbringing. I thought the Two Steves device was sort of interesting, and it at least minimized the presence of that “Tina” character (who I swear looks familiar from somewhere).
But I have a question here: isn’t the sort of thing Tina was asking him to do Steve’s job? She wasn’t requesting that he recklessly go hurl himself into danger. PIs have to, you know, do stuff sometimes. So I’m not sure how they resolve this, besides Steve becoming a house-husband or getting a job at the Pub.
