Oh, Honey, No

I’m going to begin this post by saying some nice things about Abigail, like that she is very pretty and I love that dress.

And now I’m going to say the other things I feel about Abigail, which are more or less all “Someone put this woman in a truck headed back to Shady Hills ASAP!” You filed for divorce, like, this morning. You have a young child. You just got pissed at your estranged husband for engaging in potentially shady shit. Why would you agree to a marriage of convenience simply to get a green card for someone whom you know to have been recently involved in the exact same crap you’re mad at Chad for? It’s like she went down a checklist to determine whether this was an appropriately terrible decision and realized that, yep, it really fits the bill! And this is all without her knowing that Dario is conning her. Abigail, you’re… you’re… you’re dumber than a box of Brady right now.

It’s sad that the part of this ridiculous story that I find most plausible is the explanation for why and how Dario is in this predicament to begin with. I mean, yeah, it’s asinine, but Mama Hernandez (I forgot she got an actual name for a minute there) has proven herself to be negligent at basically every turn — to the point where she would only come to Salem after she was randomly found in a warehouse being held captive by a madman — so this really does fit.

Bringing things back to Brady for a sec: what is with this parade of people taking it upon themselves to blame Chloe for Brady’s current situation?

I like any time they use the history between Lucas and Chloe, because that marriage is one of the more random, forgotten ones on the current canvas, but Lucas going off on her for being the reason Brady’s in the hospital was insane. Chloe legally filed for custody of a child that she carried. She gave Nicole multiple chances to have Holly, but Nicole refused to do the one thing Chloe insisted upon, which was breaking up with Deimos — and Deimos was the reason that the judge denied Nicole custody anyway! Chloe didn’t force Nicole to kidnap the baby (instead of, say, filing an appeal), nor did she make Brady go on the run with Nicole. And it turns out that Deimos is the one who sent Xander after them, so Chloe was right about Deimos all along! I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it seems as though renowned idiot Chloe Lane now has possession of the Salem Brain.

    This show is just a bunch of giant contrived plot devices anymore. I know I’ve said it before, but it’s really hard to watch. I’ve noticed a lot of the boards are kind of dead right now. No one even cares enough to discuss this drivel anymore. It’s like people have went from fuming mad to indifferent. It’s sad.

      I’m noticing that. Even when I try to come up with posts here, I’m just like… what am I even talking about? I cannot believe we have MONTHS of this to go.

  4. Shea Says:

    Whatever happened to good old basic human drama? Why does everything have to be so contrived and forced?

    • mykleraus Says:

      It’s like they’re nervous to give the real drama space to breathe and play out, so they keep rushing into these contrived situations in an effort to make the show “interesting,” but instead it’s just forced and boring.

    ask those writers!!!!

  6. Cyn Says:

    I thought her dress was hideous, just like almost everything else they dress her in lately. Will somebody tell the wardrobe people at DAYS that most young women her age do not wear dresses all the freaking time?

    While I’m all for independence and standing up for yourself, this version of Abs is an annoying mass of contradictions. All her decisions are thoughtless and vapid, and the well being of her child is never her first consideration. This idiocy with Dario is a good example – it is just so LAME!

    • mykleraus Says:

      Oh, I really like the dress, especially if she’s actually going to work or something. But I totally agree about the way they always have all the women in dresses. It’s improved somewhat from that phase in 2013-14 when every woman was constantly in a cocktail dress, but does no one own a pair of jeans? It always sticks out to me that Hope and Marlena are usually in pants, unlike the others. I wonder if the actresses have some say in that.
