The possibility of a Brady and Kristen pairing doesn't bother me; after all, it's not like Doug and Julie have a traditional relationship either, and they've been a popular couple for decades.
Julie was never a surrogate mother figure to Doug, either.

It's just gross to me, and it doesn't help that I don't think there's an abundance of chemistry there, anyway. This whole thing with Brady has really been dragging down Kristen's return (which has otherwise been enjoyable) for me.
That's what he does. He drags down great actresses! I'm sorry, but I always feel this way. I like the Nicole/Brady friendship a lot, but that's it. I also enjoy his relationships with John and Marlena. I can't stand how Lindsay Hartley and Sarah Joy Brown, two actresses that I have ALWAYS, wanted on DAYS were basically wasted on Brady and dumped after the pairing didn't work out. They were never given another chance to make it work...they were basically brought in to give Brady something to do and both failed and I'm not laying the blame on the actresses. I will say it was probably 60% writing and 40% Brady/EM.

The only saving grace is that Kristen isn't a new character and has plenty of other roots in Salem to save her. I'm not seeing much chemistry between Brady and Kristen yet, aside from them obviously being two very pretty people. That's another reason why I'm praying that Kristen is just using Brady to stick it to John and Marlena. Brady and Kristen don't have any special feel to them to me. I can tolerate them under those circumstances, but to me they don't feel like they're ever going to be a strong couple. I would like to see DAYS cast a strong shady actor for Eileen Davidson to pair up with once Kristen is truly exposed. I wouldn't mind seeing her have someone hot to scheme with, who can also be on par with her acting. I would love a Ricky Paull Goldin or someone like that. If they don't want to go that route I think they should have her hook up with a strongly recasted Mike Horton. She needs someone to match skills with. Its really the only thing dampening the return for me.
