And I don't get why Philip is perpetually second best or not good enough because of family ties (in relation to Stephanie). This is just ridiculous. (Not your opinion, but I'm agreeing with you! It's ridiculous that they always make him second best)

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.
