I like Stephanie. I don't (or didn't) like the stupid contrived make-up, break-up cycle they put Philip and Stephanie on a couple of months ago. But, this one actually makes sense. The problem is that it comes after all the stupid ones that didn't make sense. So, once again, the writers take out the dramatic impact of this stuff by the crap they did before.

I think that this break-up is intended to stick, if not permanently, then at least for a while. While I like Philip and Stephanie, I'm perfectly fine with that because, as written, the relationship doesn't work. Without all the prior break-up, make-up crap, this could be compelling because it's one person saying "I love you, but that's just not enough to make this work." That creates drama and angst and all those good soapy things. Or it would, if they hadn't screwed it up.
I agree, although I don't think the previous breakups take away from this. For one thing, they've been together for awhile (their last "split" was back in early March) and I never took their "breakups" as actual breakups. She just wasn't sure of what they had or if she could accept him and alot of it was driven by fear of being hurt and such. It all made sense to me and this one really makes sense.

I don't think this will be a short breakup. I don't think we will see them together for awhile but I don't think they are done at all and that makes me happy. Both the couple and the characters can benefit from this and I look forward to the scenes.
