Chelsea killed her baby brother (though it was an accident, the fact remains that Zack is dead because of her) and never saw a moment of jail time--in fact, she whined about community service. Max stuffed a dead body into a water heater to keep his girlfriend out of trouble, rather than doing the right thing and going to the authorities to explain what happened. He did about three minutes of community service for that.

I'm happy for Darin. He seems like a cool, fun, guy. I do think it would be best to write Max and Chelsea out to start life anew somewhere else. The Max character hasn't really worked unfortunately, but it would be nice to see Max and Chelsea get a happy ending. As for Melanie, I think she will work even better as a character, without Max around. Now she has no one to "comfort" her, which will only make her more desperate. Changing gears, once again, I think it's time to bring back Jeremy Horton, and add him to the Melanie, Philip, Stephanie story. You have that young generation, then you bring on say an aged JT Reiber, and Joy Wesley, connect them to Will and Mia, and you have the young generation covered. Problem solved :)
Max and Chelsea get a "happy ending" while Nick sits in jail. *shudder*
How is that unfair? Nick killed someone, Max and Chelsea did not. They deserve a happy ending. Nick deserves what he's currently getting, which is jail.
And I think Tripp's point is that why did Nick have to be made a killer when they decided to let Blake go, whereas Rachel leaves (and possibly Darin does too) and they get a happy ending? Why don't they get the same shitty character destruction that Nick did?
