LOL - I'd go with something more of a domestic violence bent, but clearly, the man had issues. GREAT post Kenny... you summed it up so well. Tim, for you to say the story is "misunderstood" implies that you're understanding the truth about it, while the rest of us are not. If the story is striking so many viewers as ridiculous and insulting, and the ratings aren't budging, I'd say perhaps there is some truth to everyone's reactions. When the main point of the story becomes what the 'affected' character is doing rather than why they're doing it, the story has taken a wrong turn. As Kenny's saying, Higley puts the emphasis on the 'dark actions' rather than removing the cause (in other words, the opposite of what occurred in the possession story). Meaning, the pills are the vehicle for Higley to be able to tell a story about Hope hurting people she loves. The way it should be is that Hope's actions contribute to a larger story which teaches us about something (love? redemption? family?) and isn't a PSA for the dangers of Ambien abuse.
