But the problem is that the quad isn't balanced. I agree that they probably had to do something to make Melanie more likeable. And they did that by getting her out of the AFP thing (where she was totally overmatched) and having her back off her Stephanie hate and Philip lust, and then help Brady and help Philip find Stephanie, etc., etc. Suddenly, everybody thougth she was changed and, heck, I even liked her, mildly.
But then they took a step (or several) too far. Melanie became the center of everything. They made sure that Melanie looked sympathetic at all times and Stephanie looked like the big bitch no matter what. They made Philip look like an idiot and an asshole. And even had the newbie Nathan take heat for hurting poor, little Melanie. So, I don't see a balanced quad. I see one heavily tipped towards Melanie.
And, for me, this isn't even about Philip and Stephanie. I like them together, but I like them individually just as much. If they split them up permanently, that's fine. But, the real problem is that I hate seeing characters I like sacrificed at the alter of another character. I hated when they sacrificed Steve and Kayla (individually as much as a couple) for Ava and I hate seeing the same thing happen to Philip and Stephanie (individually) for Melanie.
