Ok... we'll see what happens! I will say that though I disagree with it, I certainly hope your view of things is right. I'd love to see the show improving as you describe.

Right. Let's say Dena decides to go with Chloe/Daniel and Philip/Stephanie and we see their romances build in December and January. Then, all of a sudden, in February, the show decides (and this is hypothetical) to pair Stephanie with Nick and Philip with Sami and Daniel with Lexie and so on (again, being extreme but trying to make a point). THAT would be a problem and then I would start my own bashing because that would suggest to me that Dena and co have no clue. Right now, things need to be stabilized. It doesn't help that Galen and Eric were brought on and that Nadia and Bryan (who seemed to be out a month or so ago) had to be repositioned into story. All those kinks had to be worked out along with Ali's maternity leave and contract guarantees and so on. I think the show will keep improving and, much like last year, around the holidays, we will see a much tighter show and more vets and things clicking on all cylinders. Maybe I'm being way too optimistic but I do think the show will go back to being balanced and that it will have directions in all it's stories and couplings at least by that point.
Thanks - not sure I saw it that way, but I do understand your point. The camera does sometimes catch the actors looking around or looking bored in a scene. Either way, agree he seems very upset about things.
I do think he was acting, Ellie, to a point. Like when he started clapping with a concerned look on his face. However, a few seconds before that, he was leaning on the bar and he just had this scowl on his face and he just kind of sighed. I'm not even sure he was aware the camera was on him. He just seemed to be showing his upset there and it didn't come off as acting for me because there was nothing to play off of yet.
