^^I think Melanie knows exactly why people don't like her and just doesn't care. I think she's confused as to why her ownership of Nick's project hasn't made her Philip's favorite person, but she thinks that's Stephanie's fault, I'm sure. I think Melanie could have been made sympathetic with better writing and more nuanced acting, but it hasn't happened for me so far.|
And, while I don't care for Melanie, I think Molly Burnett is a decent actress. I just don't think she's done very well conveying any underlying vulnerability in Melanie. The few times I think she's tried to convey that, it's come across as very fake like she's manipulating whoever she's talking too. Maybe that's now how it's intended to come across, but that's how I've seen it. Which, in turn, makes Melanie even less sympathetic.
