As I've said before, BB deserves a chance to prove himself as Shawn. Seems that an MB agrees. Here's wht he/she had to say about BB. He's had poor first scenes being paired with a "stranger, never mind an insipid hooker" when he himself is a recast that is unknown and inexperienced. "Shawn's already had many a personality shifts (sex slave, angry amnesiac...) over the years. Things went from bad to worse -for BB- when Shawn was on the Fancy Face III with Willow, "distancing him from all veteran cast members" This scene might have worked had Shawn been stuck with Belle, -we can only hope that would have been the case. Claire would have had a sib for sure- or even Chels. But because it was Willow (rather than Belle or Chels) with Shawn, viewers responded only to Mimi's frustrated rage over having to convince Bo that Shawn was out on the h2o with a $5 first mate,in the face of an on coming storm.
Shawn's -current- story line, like Shawn himself,- told to him by Belle- needs to shape up or ship out.
