Really? I thought they did a pretty good job with stretching it out. Most times, after what Jill did to Val at the end of Season 9, I feel like the impulse is to write the psycho off after the first few episodes of the following season. I thought the writers did a good job of slowly unraveling Jill's plot over the first half of the season. That being said, I think that first half of Season 10 (with Jill) is stronger than the second half without her.
I was kind of hoping it would unravel throughout the entire season. I don't know. I loved seeing the story unfold, but now that she's gone, I'm missing her crazy ass.

Aunt Ginny is terrible.
Agreed. They really only brought her on to replace Lilamae and give someone else room and board in Val's house. She serves no purpose other than being an annoyance at the moment. Do you know if they ever tried to get Julie Harris back to do guest stints and she said no? Obviously, at this point in the game...she's too expensive to be a regular, but they could have brought her on for a few episodes here or there to add fuel the pot.

He's the middle (Fairgate) child, and even the writers treat him as such.

That's unfortunate because he's my favorite of Karen's children. They should have had him on more, especially with the way they filled the younger age group (Olivia, Paige, Harold, etc.) Eric seems more like he'd be in their age bracket, rather than Michael.
