Questions & Comments by
Michele & Cheryl
We decided to change things up for this article. We
are noticing a lot of double standards on this show.
We will list them in no particular order.
Eve is keeping the fact that she was involved with Brady
losing custody of Tate. She felt that she was
justified for lying to Brady because she helped him.
We remember when Claire cheated to win the Bella
contest. Eve was furious when she thought that he
helped her win. Why was it wrong for Brady to help his
niece (even though he didn't), but it's okay for Eve to help
Brady? She should hope that he doesn't react the way
she did when the truth comes out.
Jennifer was like a kid in a candy store when she found
out that Eve knew that Victor had the drugs planted in JJ's
apartment. She lectured Eve and blamed her for what
happened to JJ and Brady. JJ confessed to the drugs being
his to help Theresa. He made a choice to put his job
in jeopardy. He was reinstated after Jennifer
blackmailed Kevin to lose his much needed job to save JJ's.
Brady decided to let Theresa take Tate with her because
Kimberly was sick, so he would have lost him anyway.
We brought this up because Jennifer had no reason to say
anything to Brady, but she felt the truth needed to come
out. Eve managed to put a monkey wrench in her
plan. She dangled Jennifer's relationship in her face
and she kept quiet. Jennifer is a Horton so it's okay
that she chose not to say anything to Brady. Jennifer
was right and looked like a martyr for keeping quiet, but
Eve's wrong for keeping quiet.
Kate decided to sell out to Stefan and betray Chad to
save her neck. She agreed to give secrets from Titan
to Stefan so he could stick it to Chad. Kate acts as
if she's Chad's mother and even forgets about her own kids
to put him first. The first chance she got she was
willing to stab him in the back. On top of that, she
chose to help Gabi keep the fact that Abby's carrying his
baby from him. Gabi and Kate justified this because
they wanted to take down Stefan. Kate is just a
horrible person. She's a killer, but she struts around
Salem as if she's high and mighty. It's okay for Kate
to keep scheming, but Stefan was wrong for making her pay
for what she did to Vivian. Kate's no different from
Stefan, but she acts as if she's better than he.
The next one we will discuss is the double standard
between Ben and Abby. Ben is considered the devil
incarnate for being a killer as well as crazy. The
majority of the town refuses to believe that he could be
cured. He wasn't in the institution enough for
them. Hope is really hard on him and refuses to
believe that he could have changed. Ben doesn't have
the excuse that he's crazy to justify his actions.
Abby is crazy and a killer too. She killed someone she
loved and framed her best friend for the crime. For
some reason, it's okay that Abby did it because everyone in
town reminds her that she wasn't responsible for her
actions. All of her actions are justified
because she had split personalities. She only spent a
couple of weeks with her grandmother and never had to spend
time in prison. Ben spent time in jail and in an
insane asylum, but he's still considered a nut. He
didn't frame his best friend for murder, but he's a bad
guy. She is still considered a saint because her
alters were responsible for everything she did. She
never has to be held accountable for her actions because she
has her get out of jail free card, but he doesn't have that
luxury. It's funny how she had a perfect until she
cheated on Ben and had alters. He was abused all his
life and got cheated on so it's no surprise he
snapped. He just doesn't get the excuse that Abby gets
Speaking of Ben, Chad is now in his position. As
far as Chad knows, Abby is having Stefan's baby. Chad
hates the idea that she's having Stefan's baby. He was
Stefan when Abby had Thomas. Was Ben supposed to love
it when she cheated on him with Chad and had his baby?
We are supposed to feel sorry for Chad now that she's having
another man's baby. He was no different from Stefan
except Chad's the "victim" now.
