    On one hand, he tortures Val and makes her feel like the cheap tramp she is - which is good!

    On the other hand, he's an asshole.

    So conflicted and many feelings.

    As a character Danny had no redeeming qualities to speak of but his place in the narrative was ultimately to reveal Gary's parentage of the twins and precipitate his reunion with Val. On balance a plus, I think.

    I mean, I love any character that makes Val miserable but he makes me realise that even I - shocker - have limits. He's just too nasty. Even the Jill killer doesn't deserve this!

    Well he was all kinds of hot to younger me when he showed up on Sunset Beach... Not quite sure what that says about me.

    Also Val is a SAINT.

    True story.

    Ugh I really don't like the character of Danny. He was a big jerk and really evil.

    I liked Danny for about his first 2 episodes. Then he started creeping me out. The biggest uneasy thing about Danny is his complete lack of empathy towards anybody else, which makes him very scary. That scene when Karen and Mack could see right through him, was chilling. Superbly played by Sam Behrens, though.

    And Val is brilliant. She turns every negative into a positive of making herself stronger.
