If only the rest of Salem had the sense of Julie Williams.
I realize that might sound like a crazy thing to say, considering the woman is bonkers (Exhibit A: the fact that her B&B hosts “high tea” at a single table in the foyer), but her reaction to Aiden was perfect. I realize these people encounter a lot of murderers and psychopaths and what-have-you, but they’re all so casual about it. I mean, Kate is practically begging a self-professed maniac to marry her after having known him for two months and knowing that he’s obsessed with another woman.
And don’t get me started on how Aiden was all, “I have to stay here! The Salem Inn is full!” You mean there’s not any other hotel in this city that boasts an international airport and various multinational conglomerates?
Other things not to get me started on:
- Belle: She “broke up” with Philip about fifteen minutes ago and divorced Shawn like a week ago, and her daughter whom she’s neglected is giving her trouble, so obviously the solution is to go out, get drunk, and throw herself at her barely-ex-husband. She’s wretched.
- Ciara and Chad: Good grief! You could see Billy Flynn working overtime to try and spark chemistry in their scenes on Friday, but he might as well have been acting opposite one of Stefano’s chess pieces. I’m hoping that the point of all this is simply that Ciara gets fixated on Chad because of all she’s been through, and Chad is appalled and has to push her away (shades of Abigail/Austin), because if he reciprocates in any way… yuck. She’s the barely-legal cousin of his recently institutionalized wife, and his nephew is in love with her, and she was raped not too long ago. And she might be a robot.
