I agree with you. Molly seems like a really nice, sweet person and I do think she is a talent. I wish her all the best going forward. A Melanie re-cast would be a mistake in my view because there is no Melanie without Molly Burnett, for better or worse. The only problem I've really had with the character of Melanie is the way female characters (see: Stephanie, Abigail, Gabi) have been made to look completely pathetic/undesirable compared to her when they are anything but, and male characters have been written as slavishly devoted to her to the point of being abrasive, obsessed idiots (see: Nathan, Chad). Melanie does have a certain charm and spunk, but the character has been oversold. Regardless, I think Molly has a bright future ahead.
It is annoying that other characters have been cheated out of proper goodbyes but I won't hold that against Melanie/Molly. It is down to the lack of consideration and possibly vindictiveness of various regimes and it is a shame for the characters and the fans.
