I couldn't stand Raines. he was so over the top. WHO THE HELL would want to work for HIM? He must have made EVERYONE miserable to the point of mutiny. Anyway, he became strictly FF material for me. Glad he is gone, but why was he on to begin with? Ditto Deimos. Ditto Victor. Ditto Victor on Y&R. Ditto Bill on B&B. Ditto Sonny on GH.
Note to writers, when the villains really get nasty, I just can't watch, nor do I want to be led like a dog on a leash as you kick the can down the road, and keep promising me "just see where this goes" while I used to watch every day for months and years on end. I know by now things just get dropped or not satisfactorily resolved much of the time. I know now that if I like I story I watch, and if it goes south to then pull the plug, even if they won't. I will tune back in when the good stuff begins airing, cuz most of what's on now is not good at all... oh, and I KNOW the new writer already began airing.. but still waiting (but with the TV off, not while watching all the bad episodes) for all this good stuff that is supposedly happening. And no, the return of that b*tch, Kristen, another villain, is NOT it!
