Agree with everything you're saying... and isn't it sad that the actors have to take matters into their own hands with these writers? I've been posting about Drake and Deidre doing the same thing. I think they're playing the J&M angle even though it's not being written in. Thankfully we have these actors who are able to carry the show despite the horrendous writing.

I think you are exactly right, Ellie. It's very helpful (and was very necessary) for Steve to explain what he was really thinking when all of that was happening, but Kayla understanding logically what he is saying is different from Kayla understanding it and accepting it emotionally. It's different than getting that picture out of her head. It's different than looking at their son and thinking of everything that happened to them over the last few months. I like that it wasn't all just fixed at the end. I'm not expecting any more direct conversations about it, but I imagine SN and MBE will continue to play it subtextually as much as possible.
And I still find it sad and ridiculous that it took the actors and fans lobbying for this fallout for it to finally be included.
