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.
Unless they tie Chad to someone on the canvas, it would be tough.
What you said about them possibly breaking up in real life at any point is one big reason why I wouldn't take the risk of pairing them. They are a cute couple and seem into each other but they are young and it can end as fast as it started and then there would be tension. I just think both Chad and Melanie don't belong in the teen set. They just don't look good for that range.
As for the FT issue, I'm with you in wondering about that. I know Arianna/Brady was not the plan but they could've had her go with Brady on these little adventures. That would be better then all the scenes of them bumping into each other and dancing around each other in terms of what to say. If they had a feeling it wasn't clicking, I wonder what took them so long to take action and recast? There seems like so much to the story.
