|Paybacks a bitch David, and so am I!|
Let's break it down shall we? David DID hire someone to sabotage Erica's plane so she couldn't get back to Pine Valley and Greenlee could take control of FUSION. He did this. We know he did this. There is no justification for David on this one. Did he mean to almost kill Erica? No, of course not. He wanted the plane grounded. He didn't want her to get on it and crash! Remember, he saves lives dammit, he doesn't take them, even though he's not a doctor anymore. Still, he did hire someone to mess with the plane. It was sloppy, especially for David. He thinks of every scenario usually but he didn't think that Erica would insist on getting on the plane with no maintenance check. Is it is his fault that Erica demanded to fly home? No. But it is his fault that the plane was not fully functional. But in the end, there is an actual crime here.
Then there is Angie. A young boy came into the ER after falling off his bike. Angie just happens to be an infectious disease specialist. Remember how she came back to Pine Valley? It was because Greenlee and Frankie (then known as Quenton) had a disease that no one could figure out. Her expertise was needed so Joe called her for help. So for Angie to see the signs that something else was wrong with this boy, other than his fall works for me.
|Angie Angie Angie... oh nothing, I just like saying that|
What doesn't work for me is that she would try to treat him without taking proper precautions (such as mask and gloves). Time was a factor, but no amount of budget cuts (David's fault) should hinder a doctor from protecting themselves from possible infections.
|I save lives dammit!|
|If you give me fake drugs, I'll help you in court, or may be do you on a poker table, your choice.|
And last but certainly not least, we have Ryan.
|Ryan, you're such a douchebag. Takes one to know one Davey boy.|
|Why do I bother?|
It's a long road for David. And now that Greenlee is on the outs with him, that leaves no one in his corner. David's eventual downfall with no chance to come back will be that no one is in his corner. That he has no one to love, and no one loves him. Don't destroy David! Pine Valley needs him! Don't forget David's vulnerabilities. It's those things... his desire to be loved and have a family, children, that make David the complex and interesting character he is. Once those factors are gone, he's nothing but a one note baddie and that usually ends with being buried alive in a park or hanging on a hook, frozen in a meat locker.
