Shirley's Opinion #52
2/23 - 2/27/04
Ok, Ladies and Gentleman, I have a news flash for you.
(Ok, a lot of you may have already figured this one out a long time
ago, but it just occurred to me this week) Anyway, I have finally
figured out the true source of evil in Harmony, and it isn't Tabitha,
Hecuba, Julian, or Alistair, although they do a pretty good job of being
evil, too. No, it's not the obvious choices that are at the bottom
of all the evil in Harmony. It is the one you'd least expect, as it
usually is in any good mystery. Anyway, here is how my theory goes:
The evilest person in Harmony is......EVE RUSSELL!!
Now, before you start laughing at my stupidity, let me explain
why I believe this. It will make sense, I promise. I hope so,
Ok, stop and think about all the rotten things that are
going on in Harmony right now. Grace is with David, thinking he's
her first husband, and Sam and Ivy have almost done the deed again after
all these years. Rebecca is married to Julian, who can't stand her
at this point, and she has Theresa and the rest of the Lopez-Fitzgerald
clan reeling from losing everything they had in one fell swoop. Theresa's
son is now in the process of being adopted by Gwen and Ethan. Whitney
is about to become the wife of her own brother, and she has been drugged
by Ivy and shot by Chad's ex-wife. One old man is dead, as well as
one of Eve's oldest friends. And that's only part of the problems we
can lay at Eve's doorstep. Why? Because she refuses to tell
the truth about herself! Now, I don't know about you, but that is
the epitome of evil, in my book.
We all know Alistair is evil. He always has been, so
that's not a shock. He has done things to, or allowed things to be
done to, most of the characters on this show. Horrible, evil things.
But we know it's coming from him, so it's not that much of a shock.
What is a shock is that Eve Russell, the most upstanding, kindest,
most talented doctor ever seen on this earth is allowing and even helping
him do much of those things. She knows of a lot of the things he has
done, yet she doesn't tell anyone about it. Why? Because if
she did, he would let the world know about her past. She is
protecting herself rather than those she is supposed to love.
Then there is Ivy. She set a plan in motion to hire
David to come to town and play on the fact Grace remembers nothing about
her past before she met Sam by claiming to be her first husband, whom she
never divorced. Eve found out about that plan, but has never let
Grace in on the secret. Why? Because Ivy knows about Eve's
past with Julian, and will tell all if Eve doesn't keep quiet. I
mean, she even drugged and almost killed Eve's daughter, Whitney, to keep
her quiet, and Eve just went along with it! Just to save herself!
Now, that is truly evil, right? I mean, her "best
friend" is now separated from her family, and the family is falling
apart piece by piece, but still Eve says nothing. Some friend!
Then there's Theresa. Rebecca took her son away on
trumped up charges, and now she's working to get Gwen and Ethan to adopt
him. She forced Julian to marry her in the first place and now she's
forcing him to go along with her vendetta against the Lopez-Fitzgeralds.
She forced Luis out of his job, as well as Pilar and Miguel,
and now Theresa has lost her job, too. Plus, they are being evicted
from their home by Rebecca. Why? So she won't tell TC the
truth about Eve. Eve knows all this and does nothing to stop it.
I can understand Julian, since he was always a chip off Alistair's
block until he met Timmy and got closer to Eve, but the good Dr. Russell?
No, she's just plain evil!
Oh, and let's not forget Liz, Eve's little sister, who
holds a grudge longer than anyone I have ever known. She has done
nothing but cause pain and problems for everyone in Eve's family, yet Eve
does nothing to stop it, except whine and beg her to stop. Yeah,
like that's going to work. No, Liz is given free reign to do
whatever she wants to do to Whitney, TC, and even Simone, although for
some reason she really hasn't done much to her. And Eve could end
all their pain in one easy step. But does she? No!! She
has to protect herself, make sure her family never knows the real Eve, her
All this evil could have been prevented had Eve simply
told the truth from the start. I mean, if TC really loves her, why
should she be afraid of losing him? It's her past, and it's over.
She really must think he doesn't love her at all if she is so afraid
to tell him the truth that she would let everyone she knows suffer
instead. And if that's the case, then she needs to leave him.
Everyone makes mistakes. No one is perfect, so why try
to pretend you are? You are who you are, mistakes and all, and
anyone who truly loves you will accept you as you are, mistakes and all.
It is really stupid of her to have lied to TC in the first place,
but to have kept those lies going all these years is the height of
stupidity. And selfishness, too. And now, when everyone she
supposedly cares for is crashing and burning because she insists on
keeping her secrets, come what may, she really needs to step up to the
plate and come clean, no matter what. Not to do that is simply evil.
Period. Julian, who loves her more than his own life, is now
living a life of total, abject misery. TC, who supposedly loves her
the same way is watching his life turn from the fairy tale existence he
had assumed to be true to a tattered shambles, and he's more confused than
ever, wondering what on earth is happening to his perfect family. Grace
has made a bad choice, thinking it was the only one she could make under
the circumstances, and now she is totally miserable, watching her family
fall apart and not being able to do anything because they have all turned
their backs on her. Sam is being swallowed whole by that Black Widow
Spider, Ivy, and he has no clue it is happening. All he knows is,
his life has been turned upside down, with the woman he loves choosing to
be with another man, and his children's lives falling apart bit by bit.
Whitney and Simone, Eve's own daughters, are at each other's
throats, and Whitney is on her way to marrying her own brother, all the
while hating her mother for being a whore and having an affair with Julian
Crane. At least that's what she believes, and Eve won't tell her the
Add to all the above the fact she ran down a helpless old
man who knew about her and her love child with Julian, and she burned down
his apartment afterward, too. And there was the death of her ex-best
friend who was about to tell Chad that Eve is his mother. Now, I
don't know Eve had anything to do with that one, except for the fact that
if she had been honest about everything, the death may never have
happened. But she is at least partially guilty of that murder, too.
So after all is said and done, it becomes very apparent that the
real harbinger of evil in Harmony is Dr. Eve Russell. After
all, if she would take the bull by the horns, stand up and confess her
sins to everyone, and then tell them all she knows about everyone, all the
pain that is currently going on in Harmony would be over, except for the
hard feelings. And those would eventually be worked out so everyone
could go on living the lives they want to live instead of having all the
pain and heartache they have now. Now, does anyone know Eve's middle
initial? Wouldn't it be appropriate if her middle name were
Lynnette? Can you imagine it? Dr. Eve L. Russell. Now,
that would really say it all, wouldn't it?
