See, I actually like Destiny a lot more now than I did when the reboot first started. In the beginning, she came across a little trampy and I really did not like the actress but now that I've had chance to adjust, she's really grown on me and I really love her friendship with Natalie. The age difference did strike me as strange at first but then I thought well Nora and Nat are also close and there's quite an age difference there as well and I can see why Natalie and Destiny relate to each other as single mothers. Destiny probably doesn't have much in common with girls her age anymore because she had to grow up so fast once she had Drew so in that aspect, it makes sense that she gravitated toward a friend like Natalie.
Anyways, I think they've done a good job of maturing Destiny so she can have that same sense of spunk without so much teenage attitude. As fun as that was, it's nice to see the adult version of Destiny. She's become a very strong young woman and is still very much a force to be reckoned with, Imo.
