Other then Chloe, who is sleeping around?
There hasn't been any of that since they finally pushed Scott out and settled all the backstage drama. Higley wasn't the blame for all that. Not saying I like her but she had settled on one vision and what pairs she wanted until Mr. Scott jumped in and started fucking with everything. Notice how once he left, the stories all settled in and there was no more forced pairings and characters bouncing all over the place. I don't mind Higley being blamed for things but lay the blame where it belongs. The fact is all the chemistry testing and forced pairings would not have happened if not for two people clashing behind the scenes.
What is remarkable is how the show took the forced Lucas/Chloe pairing and made a long-term story out of by adding Daniel to the mix. Yes, WTD stories have been done to death. Yes, it's another baby story but soaps are going to reuse stores. These are classic soap staples. It's going to happen and while variety is needed, you can't just disrupt the natural flow of things as a writer because you just did this last year or whatever. Otherwise, you end up with a creative mess. If you believe in a story, you tell it and hope the audience goes along with it. That is what the show has been doing since Tomlin and Whitesell came in and it works. Why? Because the writers believe in it and when you believe in something and invest in it, the story isn't half-assed and people will invest because of it. Maybe not some people in this thread but it will happen. That is what happened under JER and Hogan's regime. Their visions and plans were disrupted and their heart wasn't in it so everything came off in a underwhelming way. The audience can't invest in something the show itself isn't invested in.
I don't see why you can't do a WTD story along with a baby switch. They are different stories. Not saying I wanted this but at least it adds long reaching consequences to the story and makes the payoff even more worth it. Add to it the fact that I can buy Chloe/Daniel now and it works for me. I'm used to being in the minority though so nothing new LOL. I just hope they add their own little spins to it as we go along.
