Never in the history of watching soaps have I ever wished a character "killed off" or just plain "assinated" as much as I do Jade's character. I really don't think she has a connection to Oakdale or has a purpose. She's not related to Lily remember! Lily investigated whether or not she was Rose's daughter and she was not, remember! Don't just go Jade, GO FAR, FAR AWAY. I'm beginning to hate this show. It's the same old thing, day in, day out. Mike loves Katie, but Katie may still be in love with Simon. Simon is hot for Carly, but Carly make still be hung up on Jack. Jack is confused! Meg loves Paul but Paul is being played by Emily. Dusty is trying to have a friendship/relationship with Lucy and Lucy is scared of Barbara. Casey loves Maddie, but Maddie needs to heal. Will LOVES Gwen, but then there's Jade. It's sickening. I'm rooting for the "perfect storm." Please writers, please write this better than your Jade story. You know writers, I think I've found YOUR problem. You've given Jade too much power. We don't mind if she causes a problem every now and then, but you've given her too much power over some of the characters we really like. Try to fix that. Weaken her.
