*EXPLODES WITH DISBELIEVING RAGE*

Nope, still haven't watched it; thoroughly spoiled myself instead.  Come on, you know I had to see what Kristine Huntley had to say about "Right Next Door."  

I thought maybe she'd at least be a little upset about what they'd done to Danny's character, even if she followed it up with something like relief that D/L looked like it was almost over.  But no!  Not at all!

Rikki tells Danny that one day he'll wake up and realize that Ruben's death wasn't his fault, but in the meantime wholly acknowledges she's taking advantage of his guilt over the incident. And why shouldn't she? Rikki lost her son, after all, and clearly has little left--it's hard to blame her for "taking advantage" of the handsome man who blames himself for the boy's death. 

Bolding mine, obviously.  Because WHAT THE HELL.  *sputters incoherently*  Also:  

it's clear from Danny's reaction that he never thought of her as a girlfriend at all.
. . .
You know what, I just have no words.

You know that I'm an avowed anti-shipper, but even I'm appalled at the level of spin over Danny's assholery; it's because Danny is Danny, and he can do no wrong. If it had been Lindsay rolling Flack in the chem room, the torches would be lit and the mob would be in pursuit.

Indeed. I've never been particularly fond of Danny on his own, and this isn't helping.

It was painful to watch. Not just being a D/L shipper, but just seeing Danny do something so out of character.

Yeah...I love her writing, normally, and I appreciate the very probing and analytical approach she took to deconstructing the storyline and weaving in connections and support.

However, sometimes characters just behave like assholes. End of story.

I can't even watch that episode. Ugh.

Turns out, though, it's actually pretty good if you skip any scenes with Danny in them. That "if" is very important.
