Xander and Kristen

I kind of feel sorry for Xander. He only wants to make a life with Sarah and was following Victor’s orders about switching the babies to protect Maggie.He wants to be accepted by Victor and into the family. Even though I can understand why others treat him so prickly.
But meanwhile, they’ve been acting partially sympathetic to Kristen who has done far worse things than Xander and was even telling him what to do.I hate to say it but I think there’s a double standard because he’s a guy villain and gets less sympathy from the others (with the exception of Ben who’s also a guy and gets forgiven for actually killing people).

I love Xander but he’s got himself in a pickle right now. Bad boys always go about things the wrong way. Maybe, eventually, Sara will understand that he was trying to protect her and her mother. Yes it was wrong, really wrong, but dang it makes for juicy goodness, and that’s the stuff great soaps were made from! :rofl:

To make it clear- Kristen deserves sympathy for losing her baby and it’s easy to see why she has been getting the treatment she has been (although I wonder why she wasn’t convicted for killing Hayley in the one year jump).
It’s just that Xander has been no worse in his deeds than she has in the past. (Though I see why Justin,Will and Sonny are angry with him and Victor right now).

Xander is a bad guy, period! He has tried to change his ways and has failed. But in his defense, he’s trying to protect two women he loves from a horrible truth. Still wrong.

Kristen…she is pure evil through and through! She raped a defenseless priest! WHO DOES THAT? Her sins are not justified because she was protecting anyone BUT HERSELF!
So I honestly don’t feel a bit of pity for her.
Brady yes, because the big dumb klutz keeps getting sucked into her lies. I don’t believe she’s changed! Evil is raging through her core. It’s who she is. Do I hate her? Heck no, I love her. She’s a fantastic character for DOOL.
I loved and miss ED but SH has grown on me.
It took a while though. ED has some big shoes to fill.

I don’t mind a Villainess doing what a Villainess has to do! LOL! As long as she’s a great actress, like SH and LK, love them! :heart_eyes:

Definitely a double standard here. Kristen is getting sympathy for losing a child yet she kidnapped Holly, tore Tate out of Theresa’s womb, and was prepared to do the same to Sarah. Yeah she’s someone who values a childs life! Kristen killed Haley but gets a pass because she had just lost her child. That’s a pathetic excuse and not justifiable at all.

Xander doesn’t get a pass for anything he does and Eric has the gall to call him a monster when all he did was try to protect Sarah and Maggie. Xander has a better chance of being a better person than Kristen ever will but Xander isn’t sleeping with Brady Black or going on the Salem apology tour like Kristen is so Xander will be blamed for everything.

Kristen always has a plan and her sudden “Little Miss Sunshine” act won’t last long.
