Melanie is been around for a year now and they are in love with her, so that's the "inside" character you need. Melanie has been on the show much longer then Mia yet there are Chad/Mia scenes. And if there is chemistry there, then I can let go there is no ties to either main family. I'm honestly getting tired of how everyone has to be related to a Horton or Brady anyhow. It's what has gotten us into the UF mess we were in not to mention that Brady is related to ALL the core families so he must be with an outsider. I remember when Hogan brought Stephanie back with Jeremy and Jett, and it irked me to death that three people from three different core families would hook up and become friends in a random place as Ohio.

Quoting limited to 3 levels deep
But haven't you heard? Everyone is interested in seeing Molly act opposite men way out of the character's league! Isn't it much more fun and realistic to see guys in their 30s fondling teenagers? And when Molly does those special ticks that just make her Molly (skewing her face, pouting on screen, the voice), it comes even closer to that underage thing that Dena is all about!
And how long have we been saying to put Melanie with Chad? Geez.
I don´t think this is a good idea. You cannot pair two outsider characters. Who would care about them. I know Mel is very close with Maggie and there is still a chance she will be eventually revealed as Nicol´s daughter, but you need atleast half of the couple to have some strong ties in Salem. That´s the main reason why Nathan is a Horton and his Horton roots are reminded so much. They needed someone for Mel and they knew in order to secure Melanie´s position on the show he has to have strong ties in Salem.
Besides, Molly and Casey are still young. I wish them best but they are together maybe two months now and they can as much easily breakup next week. I really don´t want some awkward offscreen resentments to be projected on screen.
Btw. Melanie and Brady trying to save things together again? I´m really starting to wonder if the show had some trouble with FT. Because so many scenes which could be Ari and Brady together and used to build their relationship are Mel and Brady instead. Seems weird.
Now I do admit that having MB and the guy playing Chad was problematic a bit, but IMO they are actors and if I was the show, I'd tell them to act professional and if they choose to date outside the "office" and it blows up, they still have to do their parts.
