Quote Yale Steam: .... Husbandless, manless, and childless. It's what she deserves.
Phyllis is a core character and one that many viewers enjoy. Therefore, those looking or hoping for a prison term can forget it. I predict that there may be some sort of rewrite that clears Phyllis and make Cricket look like the FOOL she is.
The insect on the other hand will leave Genoa City with nothing, no husband, boyfriend or children to speak of. Phyllis will have her husband, her children, and her sister-- her family.
Cricket has her career though. I hope that keeps her warm at night and it's good company for her.
Here is the difference between Christine & Phyllis, back then, Phyllis was a selfish, manipulative woman, & she wanted to take all those things from someone because she selfishly wanted them for herself. Christine can walk away from all of this without those things because her purpose in life is not to just walk into someones life & take them.
Christine is very fufilled with her job. She loved Danny back then, but once she lost him, she moved on with her life pretty nicely & buried herself in work. When Phyllis came to town chasing Danny, Christine didn't make it her lifes mission to get revenge on Phyllis & take Danny back, she didn't try to kill her or stalk her. Actually, years later, she even helped her with Daniel.
This is not about revenge for Christine, this is about justice. I like Phyllis, but like Christine WAY better, & she deserves to seek justice for what Phyllis selfishly did to her years ago. Phyllis will come out of all of this just fine because she always does, but Christine will walk away from all of this just fine, with her amazing job in tact, and she'll have some closure on a time in her life that was hell for her.
It's not like she knew her or anything. Do millions of fans think about the spouses of real life stars? I don't think they do not unless it's a star couple like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.
As for the hell Christine was put through, I disagree that she was more put upon than she dished out. That's what made me so sickened with the character she was constantly inserting herself trying to find a way to discredit Phyllis(and yes I think it's beside the point that she was actually hiding things) She obviously didn't move on because there were several times that she crossed a line with Danny while she was supposed to be with Paul not just the one kiss on the same day she was supposed to marry Paul. She even ended up being with Danny years later when Daniel came back to GC and actively tried to continue keeping Phyllis away from Daniel even though she had court ordered visitation rights.
