what Melanie could do if Jan Spears were to awaken and reappear in Salem! That could definitely exceed the great Sami/Nicole rival scenes we so enjoyed. The character of Melanie has taken a greater leap from ‘dislike’ to ‘appreciation’ for the viewers than we were given of Chelsea. In my opinion, Chelsea grew up w/Dr. Dan’s help but the actress’s desire to ‘go-forth-and-prosper’ left us too soon.
