Dreaming of a Melanie-free Days
It wasn't totally random, as we were introduced to the character beforehand, but Stephanie was raped by a fellow student at Salem University, Ford Decker. I think they first met when they were doing some sort of bachelor auction and Stephanie's friend Cordy wanted to buy a date with him (I'm fuzzy on the details). Anyway, he turned out to be a serial rapist, and though they had a potentially interesting idea with him being introduced as a super nice guy, driving home the point that rapists can look perfectly normal and even attractive, they dropped the ball on that by making him a serial rapist who practically slobbered every time he spoke to a woman. The way he was acting before he was killed off no woman ever would have trusted him or voluntarily been alone with him for a second. And of course, Stephanie got about five minutes of emotional fallout and that was it.
So, I'm not interested in a rape storyline for Hope, or anyone else.
