How could they miss him in those day-glo outfits?
In all honesty, he might not know how much he's supposed to reveal and it would explain why he hasn't been as harsh on the show as Nathalie Kelley has been.
I do like reading the comments under stories like this. Someone actually mentioned to hire Joan Collins to save the show.
I don't think The CW could afford her. And if they could half the cast would have to be fired to finance Dame Joan Collins "Special Guest Star" status..oh wait...there could be an upside to this.
I really don't think Dame Joan would want anything to do with this reboot.
its only early in the 2nd season and they already dont know where to go with the caracters and story haha that says it all, the're not able to make it anything worth while ALREADY
Be patient... As soon as he's going to enjoy his honeymoon with sugar mama Alexis his heart (and ass) will be axed from the show... Enter the real Alexis Colby! Rich and powerful widow... ( Adrianna can't be wrong)
Yes, there's not much of a choice if she wants to end up as Alexis COLBY, so it must be either Cecil or Jeff.
She clearly wants to punish Blake, after she saw him kissing Cristal from downstairs, so she has to marry the enemy... and rise from trailer-ashes as newborn and powerful ALEXIS COLBY!
Unless they do, and there's simply no room for Steven right now. Let's not forget that O.Sammy Jo disappeared from time to time.
It may be a financial decision and they only want to pay the actors who are essential to the current storylines.
One could argue that NuSammy Jo isn't essential either (especially without Steven) but firing Rafael De La Fuente is not an option because they would lose millions and millions of viewers.
He and Fallon are the yin & yang of the show: the ambitious bitch vs. the lazy bum.
Maybe Collins can show up as Alexis Senior, the mama of Nicollette
Yes, they are the stars of this show.
She'll do it if they ask her because she won't be hindered by scruples if they give her the opportunity to play Alexis again.
Until then…"never heard of it!"
But that was because Spelling wanted her for his other (cop) show.
Who knows, maybe Nicolexis will go down down in Atlanta downtown, and become this:
Yes, I would suspect it's part of it. As I said, James MacKay haven't been as harsh as Natalie Kelley, so it wouldn't surprise me if they bumped him down to recurring status for the time being. The TvLine article seems to indicate that Steven AND James will be back and will be bringing something surprising along with him (Adam?).
His departure (or "re-departure") for Paraguay was not done very well. Steven is basically a newlywed (and we all know how newlyweds have "needs"), and he's just been told that the man he thought was his father, isn't. The man who acted more fatherly to him growing up, whom he thought was doing it only because he was being paid to do it, is his real father. His possible fatherhood scenario also blew up spectacularly. All this stuff makes it hard for me to buy that he would take off "to think" or to "find himself" rather than face the problems head-on. At the very least, he would have taken Sam with him, since Sam didn't do anything to cause the troubles. If Steven felt he needed to get away from Blake, from Anders, and especially from lying liar who lies Alexis...well, okay. But he ought to have realized that Sam did nothing to deserve being deserted like that.
Left out of the discussion (in the haste to shove him out the door) is Steven's sobriety. He has a recent history of falling back into old habits (with Ted), and that wasn't even a fall due to his "stressful" life. If I knew someone close to me was having a major crisis like this and has a drug problem, I'd be worried when I hear him say he wants to ditch everyone and go somewhere far away. If Steven were to relapse at the house (or even in the 404 area code), he'd have a lot of people around who can help him. Not so much in a remote area of Paraguay. This aspect hasn't been addressed, like I said, in their haste to write him out, and it's a storyline 'beat' that ought to be.
Actually, I think it's very in character for him to flee rather than try to face the problems head-on - after all, last time he went on a world tour to save the world was largely due to the pressure of being the male Carrington heir in addition to his previous problems with addiction. I do wish someone would've properly called him out on his tendencies to run, but maybe that's eventually coming since they already has said he'll be back.
Steven lives inside his own head and agonizes over decisions, a trait he shares with his original counterpart. I think Steven feared he would be tempted to fall off the wagon if he stayed in Atlanta which would endanger his marriage to Sam. The only viable option he saw was to go to Paraguay and work himself to exhaustion so he wouldn't have time to think about his problems.
Having Steven out of the picture opens up possibilities for Sam. Steven definitely would have called Child Protective Services as soon as they discovered Matthew Jr. That wouldn't have been much fun and would have dramatically reduced the likelihood that a gun-wielding Claudia would show up shouting "where's my baby?"
