Black Widower

Let’s say you are currently engaged to a man who has been engaged five times (to Chloe, Arianna, Madison, Kristen, and now you), and of all those women, the only one who’s still alive is the one who managed to make it official with him.


Things you should probably not do: hold a fake, private wedding that is in no way legally binding but would be perfect for grief-stricken flashbacks in the event that you should die a terrible death at a young age. Theresa, you in danger, girl!

    I’m really amazed the Brady character has managed to stick around this long without having a love interest that sticks. I find him to be pretty useless, but I know some still hold out hope for Broe or Bricole. Imo he ruined the Theresa character. I really enjoyed her up until she was placed in his orbit.

      I know. He’s well connected, which helps — in some ways, he’s been the anchor for John and Marlena over the past few years, plus he’s tied into the Kiriakis brood. I still think his strongest pairing was with Kristen.

    I LOVED Kristen and Brady the best too! You know, they never did exactly find the body …

    btw, of course I forget because none of it was worth remembering, but weren’t Melanie and Brady officially engaged but never officially married … yet she lives … perhaps Theresa could slip through this loophole? Which would be ironic given that she’s the one that caused the split with Melanie, so maybe that was a breaking of the curse of sorts?

    • Michelle Says:

      I’m thinking Melanie turned his proposal down, but I could be wrong.

      • mykleraus Says:

        I feel like he was walking around fondling that ring for a week or two, and by the time he got around to giving it to her, Theresa had issued her ultimatum.

    • mykleraus Says:

      Oh, she’s totally not dead. The minute they can get Eileen back and they have a story, she’ll turn up.

      I thiiiiiink Brady was going to propose, but Melanie turned him down because of Theresa’s ultimatum. I feel like they never got to ‘officially engaged’ status. But I might be misremembering that.

      • otherweb1 Says:

        ooh wait … maybe they were engaged, and then the next day Melanie gave the ring back due to the ultimatum?

        Even if Kristin is Brady’s true soul mate, Theresa makes sense for him too … she kept him hooked on drugs, used him for his money, tried to kill his father with a fireplace poker then let Brady believe he’s the one who did it, then forced him to break up with maybe the only legitimietly sane woman Brady ever got with. So see, Theresa is totally his type.

      • mykleraus Says:

        Oh, maybe they WERE briefly engaged. If she accepted and then gave that ring back… smartest thing she’s ever done.

        I liked the Brady/Theresa relationship when it was all dysfunctional. I still feel like we didn’t quite see the transition happen onscreen.

    Off post topic … but can we talk about this week’s Terror-a-Twa???!!!! Is it just me, or does anyone else get the feeling they’re not watching a major, 50 yrs running, daytime soap on a major television network, but instead a really bad and amateur production of a live onstage community theater play?

    • Michelle Says:

      It is bad. At this point I think they need to stop the big stories and focus on things they used to be good at, like couples. They can do that on a 15 cent budget you’d think, just two people talking and falling in love. It astounds me how bad they’ve been at romance the last two years, a show that was once known for their couples! The only two that have worked are Ericole, who they inexpicably blew up, and Chabby who have had about one episode of peace along with two years of being tortured, I mean even their wedding was filled with doom.

      • mykleraus Says:

        I know. The smaller character stories should work better — look at the Sami/Nicole baby switch as a model. It wasn’t ‘small’ in scope, but it wasn’t a production-heavy story. Lots of conversations between two people and secret-keeping.

        I think the Trio of Terror was good for injecting some energy into a really lifeless show and redirecting the focus in a bunch of areas. But I’m really glad it’s wrapping up now.

    • mykleraus Says:

      I… often have that feeling.
