Has Ethan, the ATTORNEY, ever solved any cases? He didn't even look over his and Gwen's divorce papers to SEE if she was right (that it wasn't finalized) He just took her word, right?
(I only get to read the updates.) He hasn't even considered to go get Theresa's WILL and follow her wishes. He would also be able to read Theresa's letter to him telling him that he is LE's father. We can blame it on the writers for starting so many s/l's that they leave hanging.
That is NOT good writing to do that. Can you imagine reading a book that made up s/l's and just left you hanging??? I would never buy that writer's books again, would you?
