Quote Kindredspirits: I agree here...no way does Caroline need Victor. Sure she loved him once but Victor has a evil side and a fettish for younger woman. :) Kindred!
If Caroline NEEDED a man, and Grandpa Shawn were not around, %( there are plenty that are. Roman, Bo, Steve, etc, etc.
As far as Vic's 'fetish' for younger women goes, it's probably one of those "trophy wives" bit. Although, I have to admit, I wonder where Kate had fitted into that scheme of action. A trophy wife she was not.
I wonder, if Caroline had actually left Shawn for Victor, would C&V still be together today? Was Caroline Vic's the one that got away'? It would be such different dynamics had Caroline picked Vic instead of Shawn. Would Vic be mellow and easy going instead of the grumpy, manipulative, controlling person he is now? Makes one wonder.
