Overall, I am really loving the new headwriter's episodes. Most here are pleased as well (not all). But elsewhere, I have been seeing a great deal of negativity. O.K. mostly on one site, but it surprised me. The new headwriter has not even begun to write new stories, is trying to wind up and deal with the disappointing stuff we have been seeing the past several months, and in my opinion, is doing a wonderful job. So.....Ron C's cleanup began July 19. How do you feel about what has happened so far? (Please remember this is not a thread to state what you might WANT to happen, but what has gone on so far. While I am not happy that Dario just managed to evade arrest, he is gone, that is a plus. Chad/Abby being able to reconnect.......a plus Gabi understanding that Chad's heart and mind is not with her......yes a definite plus Victor hiring Xander to do in Deimos.........a minus Deimos's killer not yet revealed.......a BIG minus Tripp's refusal to accept the facts of Ava's crimes..Minus I am torn about Joey's being unable to deal with his guilt trip Brady's jealousy......a minus for me Nicole finally forgiving Eric...a plus Nicole's efforts to keep that fact from Brady...minus How do YOU feel about what has gone on so far?
