Quote coldrain: the recasts for both destiny and matthew don't fit the story of how we got to this situation. pretty obvious when dani is drooling over the new matt actor like he's one of the ford brothers, where as she friend zoned the old one.
it would be completely believable with the old actors, now? not so much.
could you see the old destiny written as going dancing at a night club and teasing her "hunky" ex baby daddy? the actors that play these characters now would not realistically have been anything like the old matt and d were together. argue it all you like.
and why are they writing her to be bff with natalie, isn't natalie in her mid 30s or something.
speaking of awful writing, natalie fawning over the con artist criminal cutter? if only rex and john were around to see her now..
I can definitely see Eddie Alderson playing Matthew exactly as he is written now. It's not so far fetched from the way he was basically the last two years, maybe even three years of the show.
As for Destiny, to an extent I can see Shenell playing the Destiny the way it is written now but they probably would have written the club scenes differently even though they'd probably still have her in the club.
Destiny and Natalie being friends is very weird, however, at this point she has more in common with her than the people in her age group so I get.
