Kenny, you slay me! Could you imagine the outrage?!
I'm a firm believer that you can sell ANY story as long as you sell it the right way. What if Celeste started sticking her new age stuff in, trying to help her grandson? What if Abe was furious? Now, Abe, at the end of his rope, is pushing away his friends, his family, everyone, believing they "don't know what's best for his son". And Lexie struggles with her husband not coming to terms with the fact that Theo DOES need special treatment. Abe can't see the forest through the trees with his child, and turns to Marlena (who needs Marlena and Trent... a character we already know is not long for this world?). Marlena, the shrink, tries to help him... and Abe and Marlena start to grow closer, which infuriates Stefano, John AND Lexie. And the night passion ignites with Abe and Marlena, something awful happens to Theo, and Stefano helps Lexie take desperate measures to get her son the help he needs and away from Abe, and suddenly Theo's autism has laid the groundwork for fireworks everywhere.
I'm not saying this is THE storyline to tell... it's just me fan-wanking. :blah: :blah: ;) You can tell any and all sorts of stories. It's just that in the land of Salem, you really need to amp up the odds in a story like this. You can't just make it an afterschool special, because it will ALWAYS fall flat on its face on this show.
Just my opinion. I could be wrong.
