Ok, so I have been mulling over the various threads and figured I would start to cover all that I want in one fell swoop.
As for couples, I think Olivia and Mac might actually be an interesting one. She isn't technically tied to the mob currently (unless you count the AWOL Dante), so I think her free spirit and personality could compliment Mac, or least get him some.
I think I would like to see Patrick give Robin what for. I mean he has tried to be understanding and supportive, and I think he should give her an ultimatum. Get help or it's over. Maybe that might shake her up enough to FINALLY get treatment. This little blame game she keeps playing is really starting to get old. I did like when Liz told her she still had to be accountable for her actions.
I like the idea of Lucky and Rebecca. Only for the reason that it could be enough of a change (rather Sam or Liz) that it could show Lucky he can have someone other than the old standbys.
I would love to see a real throw down between Olivia and Claudia. Olivia would kick Claudia's butt in a New York minute.
I DO NOT like the idea of a Kristina/Michael pairing. They may not be blood related but ewww. Still too close.
Would like to see Bobbie and Monica have some girls time.
Maybe Mike and Helena could have a fling?
As long as Ethan isn't a Spencer, I think I could like the pairing with Lulu. I think he could bring out the real Spencer that is dormant in her, and she could maybe wipe that smirk off his face.
Love Tracy and Luke. Period. Miss seeing Edward more.
Would like to see less of the same ol same ol and repeat pairings. Seriously if we have to, bring in more characters, NOT necessarily new ones, but hey, nothing wrong with Blackie coming back, and maybe as a suitor for Alexis? He has been gone long enough that they could technically recast and may not even be that big of a difference. Think if my memory recalls correctly wasn't Milo interested in Lulu? Maybe he and Maxie could pair up.
I love Maxie and Spinelli. They have great Chemistry. I like Maxie and Johnny, just don't think long term. Don't care too mcuh for Maxie and Matt. Would like to see Matt get more storyline and maybe he and Kelly could get a hook up? Patrick's brother and Robin's BFF? Could be fun.
I just think there needs to be some shake up happening. Too much of the same=boring.
So feel free to comment or other ideas. This is just my two dollars worth!
