Kristina needs to be relevant

The fact that Kristina wasn’t there when mike died pissed me off to be honest it’s as if she’s a placeholder character or something. I would like to see Kristina get her life together and do something whether it was business or something else. Personally I would love to see Kristina go to nursing school and pick Amy’s brain (it was implied they are good friends/roommates). If they make her have some aspirations and goals maybe she would be a legit important character instead of a background character. I’m gonna to end this rant with this Sasha has had more screen time than Kristina a cassidine/corinthos, that’s just a shame

Honestly I wouldn’t mind a recast. Don’t get me wrong I like Lexi Ainsworth bu if she’s so unavailable then someone else needs to get the opportunity.

A few weeks ago there was a lengthy conversation on here regarding Kristina’s absence from Mike’s bedside and the lack of adult story lines for her. We saw a lot of Kristina when she was a little girl and occasional scenes when she was a teenager such as the Keifer abuse story line. There were big gaps during those years that Kristina was offscreen so viewers weren’t really given an opportunity to get invested in her character. This is in stark contrast to many others such as Maxie, Michael, Robin, Emma, Molly, etc. where we literally saw them grow to adulthood. I personally have a hard time seeing Kristina as an adult and frankly don’t think that Lexi could carry a really adult story line where she isn’t the consummate victim. I don’t know if a recast would even help.

I hear what you are saying and I agree…but I don’t think that many Viewers would agree with that…

It feels like Joss is the person of choice for the younger set. Even though Molly & Kristina are older they never had the SL’s that Joss has/had. It bothered me that Joss had more air time during Mike’s forever death scenes, over Dante, Michael and Kristina. It is what soaps do they pick a character and play them so much that people start disliking the character, I feel Joss is heading down that path. Just an observation.

I have to respectfully disagree in the sense that Lexi isn’t capable of playing an adult character, she’s a former Emmy winner there is no question she has talent but the writers shackle her to make her whiny and a “forever victim” the character needs an arc of growth. She needs to “get her sh*t together” for instance she needs to stop tending the bar and get a legit education not because tending a bar is wrong but because it just doesn’t make her that impactful. As I stated before on this thread making her go to nursing school will at least make her a staple in the hospital scenes and make have a pseudo Elizabeth role. Then after the maturation she can have a romance s/l whether that is with a man or a woman I personally do not care but that will only help with her progression. Even small things like letting her watch Wiley or have a meal with Michael is something that would help her become relevant.

Yea I get that the fans love her but if cast right and the character is written better the fans will accept it in time.

I actually like joss shes a good character and the actress is extremely talented but yea seeing her with mike was weird cuz Kristina knew him longer and is related to him but the writers don’t care.

I agree TPTB need to let her grow up and that could have happened with Mike. She could have been a source of comfort for her father and had some real scenes with MB & MG but they didn’t do it.

You and me are on the same wave length they missed a very good opportunity for her to step up whether it was for her to be a shoulder to cry on for her dad or a support system to watch her baby siblings or even for her to have so very emotion sad scenes (Lexi Ainsworth is amazing at emotional scenes). They truly dropped the ball like they always do, but hey they still have a shot to fix it right? Mhhm maybe not lol
