Seriously, Days. What did I just watch yesterday? It was like the writers picked up some rantings from a Haiden fan board and dropped it straight into the actors laps without editing. “Wait, remember when Aiden was off camera for a minute when he went downstairs? … what if at that moment Andre came in and replaced him with an exact doppelganger … and it was the doppelganger attacked Hope! … while Aiden was kept alive because, well, because! … and then he escapes, and …
But even a fan board rant wouldn’t have come up with that lousy dead bird. Jesus. If they want to get their ideas from fan boards, I know of a lot of much better places they could look.
The way they packed it all into one episode seems to me the height of laziness. When they brought Bo back in a similar way six months ago, they took some time to set it up. This was like an episode of Retcon of Our Lives.
Hey, maybe Chase will have been replaced by an exact doppelganger too, and it was the doppelganger who raped Ciara!! And Hope was replaced by a doppelganger when she shot Stefano! And Joey when he killed Ava! Let’s just undo everything!
This is what I want to know. Why bring back Aiden in the first place? Was he really that popular? I know he and Haiden have their fans, but my impression was they were never really a frontburner couple. If we are going to the trouble of bringing someone back from the dead with a lousy retcon, why not Jack? If we are going to bring back the other half of a popular couple, why not Eric?
I am honestly completely baffled.
