That's because she WASN'T annoying then! She wasn't annoying til Bo wasn't there & writers changed her character to suit THEIR agendas with new guys they've matched her with! She's no longer recognizable to the great character that was created & developed for decades - it's sad how they've brought her down with these pairings that don't compliment her at all! They sacrificed her to build up Rafe and he's ruined her and, to me, hasn't helped him either! Now, she's been so heavily criticized that everything she does is bashed. She's hopeless til they free her of the Rafe baggage and write her some better story material!
She had some annoying times in the past (Bo did too) but the two of them were so great together they'd come back (they played off each other SO WELL) and all would be well. Not so with Rafe! They need to end that mess & try to save her IMO!
