Every week we'll have a new thread for a different character; this week's is Kate. The purpose of this thread is to give both positive and negative feedback about the writing, characterization, and portrayal of the character. As always, the daily thread is the place to discuss specific episodes and scenes; this thread is for any and all thoughts on the character, the character's history, family relationships, and what you'd like to see for him/her. Feel fee to post pictures and clips if you'd like.

We'll be locking these at the end of each week and giving another character a turn.

This is not a place for fanbase fighting; please know before posting that there will be people in here who disagree with you, and if you have a different opinion that one stated, please just state your own respectfully. The point of this thread is to get feedback from everyone, good or bad.

"I don't know why I don't have a story, either!"

I don't hate her, but I don't find her super necessary, either.

EJate was hot, and my favorite pairing for both characters.

Remember when Kate had awesome hair and clothes? I loved her look in the 90s and early 2000s.

I like her a lot. Favorite pairings were with Victor in the 90s and Roman in the 2000s. Great as a schemer and a villainess. Enjoy her love/hate relationship with Lucas and love her "mortal enemy" scenes with Sami.

I like how she and Marlena were always friends despite Kate/Sami putting each other through hell. I always thought that was an interesting dynamic.

I adore this character she is my absolute favorite Lauren Koslow rocks the HELL out of this role and I cannot wait to see what is coming up for Kate. With Ian coming to town and Stefano probably getting involved in this, how can he not, I know it will be good. :rockon:

I really don't like her face deformaty from all her botox injections & possible face lifts. Sometimes she looks so scary when she talks. I get kinda freaked out. I think the camera's know this too and they shoot her alot from the side.

I've always liked Kate; I don't like her relationship with Lucas because it's just too...close for comfort, if you ask my opinion. She's got this strange need to be in his business all the time.

I loved her with Victor Webster! That was hot stuff; I know someone has clips of scenes with them because I've seen them posted here. I think Kenny maybe? I don't know, lol.

But anyway, she's so vile but I still love her.

Thank you on the Lucas thing! I think it's odd at best and borderline incestuous at worst. She's the only character who was at least tolerable in every pairing she's ever been in.

Kate is my favorite person in Salem right now. I loved to hate her for years, up until a few years ago and now it's just love.

I think she was at her best when she had a long running feud going and she spent most of her time focused on trying to destroy that person. The only issue I had with it was when the person she was fighting with was someone her kid actually wanted to be with. Then it was just annoying.

It does bother me that she treats her kids so differently though. IMO Philip was always an afterthought to her for some reason.

I'll have to write my novel on Kate later, but I feel the need to say that my favorite part of Kate is her creepy relationship with Lucas. Entertains me to no end.

I miss 90s/early-00s Kate. She was such a diva back then and Lauren Kosow played it so well.

Like lysie, I like Kate's borderline inappropriate relationship with Lucas as well. I can't remember if they ever had a character call her out on it, but that would be a pretty good scene. It would be like when Taylor called Stephanie out on her obsession with Ridge. Kate and Lucas have pretty much the same relationship. No one is ever good enough for Lucas unless Kate hand picks them and she's only going to pick women that don't stand a chance at getting in the way of her and Lucas.

While I enjoy Stefano and Kate's marriage, I'm starting to wonder if it's hurting the character. I would much rather see Stefano killed off and Kate become the "lady of the manor," the DiMera widow. She could be so much fun with all of the power that comes from gaining Stefano's estate. I will say that I like her relationship with Stefano much better than her recent ones with Daniel and Roman or even John. I feel like Kate works much better when she's involved with an older man like Victor or Stefano.

Yay another Deb Adair fan. I loved her version of Kate. I was never a real big fan of Koslow until they had Kate and Stefano put together. I'd still rather have Adair back in the role though.

Honestly, I don't remember that at all.

I remember liking Kate vs. Vivian, but I think that's because I was a huge Vivian fan. Other than that, her battles with Sami were fun for a time. The rest of what she's been up to...meh. Y'know what though- thinking about this, she was the foil for two characters I loved, and I never really hated her. That's kind of interesting, imho.

I do love the way the actress purrs a lot, or at least she went through a period of purring her lines.

The character though- I think she's firmly a supporting player. I don't need to see her in any story of her own (though her actions/interactions at Alice's funeral were kind of cool). But I think I'd miss her if she weren't there somewhere.

Don't like her as a Dimera, don't fully understand how she wound up that way (I know the plot, I just don't buy it). She should have her own power, her own resources, imho

That is long overdue. Then she could get back to her bitchy roots. She was also much better when Victor was in the nursing home.

Stefano and his genre counterparts really have no place in the modern era. The days of hidden cities, microchips and weather machines are long over.

I always found that woman to be so frumpy and boring on whatever show she appeared on. With a nagging voice that would rot milk.

How she ever could have played Jill Foster post Brenda Dickson blows my mind.

I thought she could play sexy very well. She looked damn fine with Heather Locklear on Melrose Place.
