See, this is the beauty of soaps and their crazy families. It could be construed either way! :D

I took it as her referencing Stephanie and Nathan, but I can see how it could be taken as Molly considering Melanie to be a Brady (even though she has almost zero interaction with that family and would, if anything, be some kind of honorary Horton because of her relationship with Maggie).
But, that aside, I find this whole thing ridiculous. I've not cared about Melanie in a long time, but even I can see how this waffling is turning of people who actually liked the character. Somebody pointed out somewhere that when Melanie was with Nathan, she fantasized about Philip and was affected every time Philip touched her her. Now she's with Philip and is fantasizing about Nathan and being affected every time he touches her. It's just recycling scripts almost. And if she is actually in love with Philip at all, like she claims, then she shouldn't be standing around needing Nathan to tell her that he loves her.
The upshot of it all is that, once again, Philip is somehow second best -- just like with Chloe and Belle. And as much as I might hate Philip and Melanie together (and I do) I hate that aspect of the whole thing even more.
Although really, right now Melanie has very little to do with the Bradys. She lives with a Horton, dated a Horton, and is now engaged to a Kiriakis. Now, all we need is for her to have a Dimera connection and every major family in Salem will have, in some way, adopted her. Why does she need Carly? :D
