Funny you should mention Fate. Days' current EP, Gary Tomlin, was once a director on Passions, where it seemed the female characters weren't complete without chasing after a man. (Not dissing the show, just bringing up the similarity.)

However, the way Melanie learns of what Stephanie did is stupid as hell. How about just having Melanie see Steph throwing something away? Then, she walks over and gets the pills out of the trash. That would've worked so much better. But, soaps are all about contrivances so whatever.
I see it as a Reilly kinda move, in the sense that it's like Fate is all up over this one.
It also makes Stephanie that much worse because a poor, already-suffering homeless person just, um, looking for some drugs in the dumpster- possibly to cure an illness- becomes her victim. Evil bitch can't help but hurt people.
Which is not to say that I don't see how convoluted it is. I just think the convoluted-ness transforms it into Awesome. Where else but a soap would you see this kind of storyline? Seriously. These writers are dedicated to the craft.
Shelley deserves better than this, but I'm afraid Stephanie's going to be outside looking in within about six months.
