But for me, solely IMO, I don't want Philip to be a solitary character with a string of bad relationships behind him. He's entirely capable of being a gray/dark character and being in love - either with a woman who schemes with him or one who inspires him to be better. It seems to me that Victor has been either the villain or a secondary character with romances here and there, but because I adore him so, I would love to see JKJ in a leading man role. He does romance very well.

It also would have taken the show nicely into the next generation. Belle marries her love Shawn but is drawn to Philip and the three do a dance for years to come with Philip and Belle crossing paths in a number of different ways but with him marrying and having children, divorcing because his heart can only truly be given to Belle. Meanwhile Belle and Shawn build a wonderful life together but there is that itch that Belle has that only Philip can scratch.
As a fan of JKJ's Philip - this isn't a storyline I'd like to see. I would really to see Philip happy and in love, and I wouldn't want to see JKJ wasted as the perpetual loser (which I'm already having a hard time with here - I'd really like Chloe to pull her head out and choose him already!).
I can see from a general viewer's standpoint where it might make for an interesting story, but I wouldn't like to watch Philip unhappy for the rest of his life because Belle was with Shawn. I'm glad he's moved on from that.
I never said he would be unhappy the rest of his life. Victor hasn't led an unhappy life even though he never married Caroline. I think Philip could have great loves and children but his heart could never be completely given to anyone except Belle.
The way I see it, Philip could be a wonderfully complex character who is a big ole badass, or is he?
