With every interview, it becomes more and more obvious that Molly Burnett either doesn't like the triangle with Nathan or has absolutely no idea what her motivation is supposed to be. Every time she is interviewed about Melanie's feelings for Nathan, she minimizes them or makes it clear she thinks it's some kind of minor thing -- which is totally not what the show is trying to sell us on. So, until she and the show get on the same page about all of this, she really needs to just shut up about it.
You nailed it.

It's obvious. In the summer and fall, when she was all about Nathan, she was fine. As soon as she went back to Philip and all the Carly drama started, she started doing as you said. Either she's that lost or she doesn't like the Nathan pairing.

I think the motivations are there but she doesn't buy it and that is why she doesn't play Melanie as she should.

SOW:A Closer Look: Melanie

Melanie learns that Daniel is her father this week and seals Carly’s fate by telling Bo she shot her on purpose.

Melanie wakes up and Daniel is by her beside. He is looking at her weird so Melanie thinks something went wrong with her surgery and she is going to die. Daniel lets her know he is just checking in on her and everything is fine. He doesn’t say anything about being her father because Phillip interrupts.

Then Nathan finds out that Melanie has been shot. He is worried about her and goes to see her. It’s a bit uncomfortable between them, but she is happy to see him. They are having a nice moment and are about the discuss the letter that he wrote her when Stephanie arrives. Melanie realizes they just got back for a trip they took together. Molly says, “Melanie gets a little annoyed. She wishes Nathan would have told her about it and not lied to her like other people are lying to her. It’s more cherries on top of the awful sundae. I mean, what is he doing there, if he just went away with Steph?”

Bo arrives and takes Melanie’s statement about the shooting. She tells Bo that Carly shot her and to put her in jail. “She wants to punish Carly for giving her away, for not telling Melanie she is her mom or who her father is, for having to live the life she did…everything!” Bo tries to talk her out of it, but she will not listen. Melanie thinks that if Carly goes away to jail then all of her problems will go away too.

Daniel returns and tells Melanie that he’s her father. Molly says, “She absolutely believes him, and she’s happy. It’s a nice moment. This is somebody Melanie looks up to and idolizes. Plus she’s thinking, ‘Finally, somebody will hate Carly with me.’ But Daniel’s more mature than that.”

Daniel tries to make her see that Carly is not a bad person and to reconsider the statement that she gave Bo. He does get through to her. Maggie and Max do as well. “She’s impulsive and angry, but she also has a conscience that is very strong. That’s going to come into play, “ says MB.

Molly shares her thoughts on the storyline. “I’m excited and flattered they wrote this for me. It’s so appreciated. I’m getting to work with amazing people. Crystal is phenomenal. So is Shawn. Now when I see them on-set, I’m like ‘Hey, Mom. Hey, Dad.’ We joke around like that. We all have an interesting, unique chemistry.”

She talks about talking with both Crystal and Shawn on twitter and that they couldn’t talk much before the big reveal because they didn’t want anyone to know.

They just throw Max in this article. No indication that he's returning. That's kind of off. I would've added a little blurb about Max coming back to Salem.

^Yeah. It was almost like Max was a character not returning but was always there. Strange.

This sounds better then the SOD article. MB sounds alot more sure of what is going on here.

"I'm excited and flattered they wrote this for me."

Wow, really? They wrote this storyline just for her? Surely she didn't mean this the way it sounds,and if she did my sympathy for all the harsh remarks surrounding her this week just ended.

Wow...Molly has no idea what the hell she is saying.

"She gets upset because she's young, I guess"

You guess? When you try to sell something, be a bit more certain even if your lying. She really wants Melanie paired with Philip. She's always indifferent when it comes to the stuff that pertains to Nathan.

I don't mind her getting back at Carly that way though. I know she will be talked out of it but she should be upset.
That's exactly the line I highlighted and was about to quote from the original post.

No, Molly, Melanie's upset because SHE'S IN LOVE WITH NATHAN. I don't know if MB is just stupid or really determined to have Melanie paired with Philip.

SOD:Dan to Mel:I'm Your Dad

Melanie learns that Daniel is her father. It starts with Melanie asking Daniel what is wrong and if she is dying. Daniel isn't sure how to tell her. He keeps quiet and confronts Carly again about why she kept mum. But, Carly does tell someone about Melanie being Daniel's daughter - Chloe.

Melanie finds out about Nathan and Stephanie's getaway. "She gets upset because she's young, I guess," says Molly. In her statement to Bo, Melanie says that Carly shot her on purpose. Everyone tries to talk her out of that, but she is saying it to get back at Carly. Then there is good news: Daniel tells her that he is her father. Melanie is very happy. "She likes Daniel so much and could have grown up with him her whole life and she didn't get to, and it's kind of heartbreaking a little bit," says Molly.

Daniel you poor bastard :run: . After learning this I bet you wish Kate would have killed you with that needle. I bet you'll stay :joint: & :drunk: from now on. Should have keep it in your pants bud because now you have a shit load of troubles. Daniel's reaction when Carly revealed Melanie is his kid :wtf: did I do to deserve this . Looks like Kate got her revenge afterall.

Kate to Daniel: Good things come to those who wait asshole. Fuck you Daniel :flipoff: and walks off :laugh: .

I honest to God do not know why I bother reading her interviews. Every single one of them is the same thing. She plugs Phelanie and minimizes Mate. Reguardless of what the writing on the show is saying. I have concluded for whatever reason Molly wants Melanie to be with Philip. This triangle is the worse one I believe I have seen in ages. She needs to be coached on her interviews or the writing needs to change to support her claims or like someone else said she need to shut up.

"She's upset because she young, I guess" when did she say Mel has an old soul and was so mature???? Is this why she wrote the letter??? Or was so upset that Nathan did not want to see her???? Or dreams of him????

They wrote this for her??? I guess everybody else is now supporting characters for the Melanie Layton hour??

JMO, Neither MB or CC ever seem to know what's going on when they give an interview. Their interviews are like the scenes that they are in together, they are clueless and useless.
Melanie and carly have something in common. They both think only of themselves like the world revolves around them.

Please give these actors some direction, motivation for their characters!
I can't agree with you more. These actors are interpreting their lines without any guidance from the writers or directors...

It makes for distracting viewing...

This sucks. DAYS has been really good for so long. And the best part was Danloe were off in their own world, and I could FF.

Now, all of that has been shot to shit.

Not surprising at all, but DAYS really fucked the pooch on this one.

Wow...Molly has no idea what the hell she is saying.

"She gets upset because she's young, I guess"
And this is why she has no conviction in her performances. She has no clue what the hell she's saying or doing.
I gotta agree here...she is coming off as flaky as mel in some of these interviews...

This cracked me up. One, we all knew months in advance. Two, every tweet Molly writes about the show is spoilerish, so please don't try to make us believe "they didn't want anyone to know" cause we ain't buyin' it.

Really. If she wanted to discuss it with Crystal and Shawn so much, why don't they just flippin TEXT? I guess there's no three way that way.
Modern technology just slays me sometimes.
