The harder TIIC push, the more the audience pushes back. The more they shove Dannifer down viewers' throats, the more viewers gag and try to retch this couple back up like the rancid crap they are. And it's ironic because if T&W had backed off on trying to sell Daniel as the premier leading man on the show, the successor to Tom Horton's medical legacy, Jack's romantic replacement, and the BESTEST GUY EVAH, they might not have had such a violent, visceral anti-Dannifer reaction--not this soon, anyway.
As it is, they're beating the audience over the head with all these plot contrivances designed to show how Dannifer are MEANT TO BE. And instead of falling in line like good little sheep, a hefty portion of the audience is instead screaming "DO NOT WANT!" Even viewers who were pro-Dannifer the first time around are now saying, "No thanks."
The SOD poll should be a wake-up call that this pairing isn't working, no matter what T&W do. A smarter, less lazy, less egotistical writing team would cut their losses, send both characters in different directions, and not even try to re-pair them a third time. I'm not optimistic that T&W will see the light on their own, so I'm going to hope that someone above them realizes what a clusterfuck Dannifer 2.0 is and makes them pull the plug.
Something is very wrong when viewers are actually rooting for the Sweetheart of Salem to succumb to appendicitis. Or ridiculing her rather than sympathizing with her plight.
