The problem is...soap operas can be a good soap box for telling controversial stories but soap operas have a specific formula in presenting those stories. You must see the "drama" of it play out on screen for viewers to get invested. I think the show, in choosing a couple we rarely see, was it's first mistake. The other is choosing autism in the first place...it's just not something that can play out properly on screen. Why? Because we must see the CHILD dysfunctional behavior and soaps write kids horribly to begin with. Trying to add a story where the child misbehaves and causes problems for himself and his family will fail if you never show the child's bad behavior. This kid playing Theo is really cute but having him walk in and out of scenes and then we are told what he's doing off screen just isn't going to get us craving to hear more. YMMV
