I'm not asking for Kristen's redemption, only writing that doesn't go to the lengths of her raping Eric and then make her even less sympathetic. This all started out as a war against Marlena but it's everyone else that's paying a very heavy price when we should see her actually DO something to Marlena, not Brady and certainly not Eric. I remember the days of Vivian burying Carly alive, Kristen locked Marlena in the secret room etc. The writers' lack of creativity is destroying what should be a sweet swan song for this infamous rival but somehow I'm supposed to care about her losing Brady? ED is a fabulous actress but her writing leaves way too much to be desired. It's very disappointing.

And the writers have chosen to keep Kristen as the messed up woman who refuses to acknowledge her mistakes but would rather blame others and exact her revenge on them only to screw up even more which will only lead to more heartache and misplaced anger. Honestly, she needs to grow up.
I disagree. I'm sorry to say, but if Kristen was redeemed, there would be no point to her. IMO she, even though started out as a heroine, is meant to be a grey character. If she were redeemed and "sainted", over time she would end up on the same train as Sami, Jennifer as someone disinteresting and someone who comes off as a hypocrite.
There are just some characters that are meant to be bitches, grey characters or villains. That's one of the reasons I'm not interested in seeing Nicole in the rectory much longer. We got the point already, she has been redeemed for lying about the baby and trying to break up horrible Dannifer. Now it's time to get back into the swing of things, and move on to bigger and better things, like choosing on which Mansion she is going to move into next. If Eric wants to come with her, it's fine, but the terms should be hers, not his.
I do agree about the hypocrisy, it seems to be running rampant all over Salem right now and it is very unattractive no matter the character.
