Comments on Theresa
Hey there readers. I know it’s been a few days, but I wanted to take time to respond to an amazing response I got to my I-love-to-hate-Theresa post. I want to make clear that this isn’t about slamming anyone; I respect the writer’s opinion. This is just about having a dialogue. I’m going to respond to it section-by-section.
WOW! LOL! For a second there i really thought i'd like this site. But u just totally turned me off. U just completely bashed my favorite character.
I’m sorry you’re no longer reading, if that’s the case. Just because I think Theresa is evil doesn’t mean you can’t find this blog interesting or amusing. I’d rather have readers who disagree with me from time to time.
You made her seem like the villian of this soap which is not true at all.
Well, I definitely think she’s “a” villain, although Alistair is “the” villain.
Well maybe in ur opinion but i completely disagree. I know Theresa is'nt a saint, she does'nt even come close, no one does. But i view Theresa as the underdog who obveously does some crazy things but all in the name of love. Wether its for her love for Ethan, her children, or family its never out of hate.
Here’s where we disagree. Just because Theresa has this obsessive love for Ethan, does that justify her actions? She’s done a lot over the years to break up Ethan and Gwen, even when Ethan made it clear that he preferred Gwen. Is that excusable? Remember Theresa helping with the wedding? Or Theresa going after Ethan in L.A. while Gwen was pregnant?
Its funny how you wrote that Gwen stabbed Theresa b/c Theresa drove her to go insane when Theresa was also insane when she stabbed Gwen.
That episode was years ago, but I didn’t think Theresa was temporarily insane when she stabbed Gwen in the Crane garage. I remember it as being pretty calculated. But maybe I’m wrong.
Gwen has tried to kill THeresa plenty other times before wether she was out of her mind or not.
Gwen has a bad streak, sure, but her actions have always been in response to Theresa’s; she’s never been the instigator. How can you justify Theresa’s rape of Ethan? She drugged him. If a male character drugged and raped a woman, is there any way you’d find it excusable? And what about taking the surrogate’s place in the hospital? I’m sorry, but you can’t just write these events off as “some crazy things” done in the name of love. Those are criminal acts.
Every character on this show have done some evil things for love. Theresa actions may be a little more extreme but there are way more evil people on this show. They are Rebecca, Ivy, Gwen, Kay(who untill just recently redeemed herself),etc in my opinion. Theresa might be your love to hate character but i totally disagree. IF she's evil than so is everyone else on this show.
No, not every character. In the “Passions” universe, there are angels and there are devils; people are either purely good or bad. The original Hank was the only person who was a little bit of both (I really miss that element). Yes, Rebecca and Ivy are evil characters. Ivy occasionally acts sympathetically, but she’s bad. But far more of the characters are purely good. Think of TC, Eve, Sam, Grace, Simone, Whitney, Chad, Noah, Fancy, Ethan, Fox, Sheridan, and Luis. You can’t imagine them even having a bad thought.
Finally, let me say that loving to hate Theresa doesn’t really mean I hate her. It means I love the awful things she does and I love to see her as a villain. But she’s one of the most interesting characters on the show and I wouldn’t ever want to see her leave. On that, at least, I’m sure we agree.
Have a good weekend, everybody. I’ll be back late next week. Going up to the Cape for the holiday weekend.
