I know Melanie is supposed to be her daughter, but if Carly were a man she would have been charged with stalking. Both Mia and Melanie have asked her to leave them alone and she will not accept their "NO. " Eventually, when Melanie knows Carlyis her mother, she does have the right to say "stay out of my life". Carly just will not respect boundaries now and she will be worse when the truth comes out. Also what was up with her with Maggie today? Maggie was experiencing a heavy wave of grief and Carly was completely oblivious to Maggie’s pain, just focused on her own need to apologise and then go on about M&M. Melanie was perfect with Maggie when she came home and Carly should have known better how to be present with suffering.January 26, 2010 at 12:27 pm #9996BonbonParticipant
When they showed Maggie in her funk, I saw some liquor (wine?) bottles on the counter in front of her and I thought, oh, no, here she goes. But I was wrong. I wonder if that was just a precurser of what’s yet to come. I sure hope she doesn’t fall off the wagon, but…
I really though Mia was EXTREMELY rude to treat Carly the way she did. I’m glad Maggie chastized her for it. But then, after she tells Maggie she’s sorry, she tells Carly she’d better not be there when she gets back. Boy, are they turning everybody to the dark side?January 26, 2010 at 2:16 pm #9998dvalParticipant
I think Maggie was just tired of all the drama that accompanies Carly every time she shows up and just wanted some peace and quiet in her own house. Can’t say as I blame her.January 26, 2010 at 2:28 pm #10000PattiParticipant
were a precursor to Maggie falling off the wagon. Maybe not right away; I think she will be tempted, but she’ll try to resist, but what I do know is if that’s the story they are going to go with where Maggie is concerned, I’m sure Suzanne will be amazing, and probably lead to an Emmy nomination for her. I just wish Lucas could be there for her, but maybe Nathan will take over as her savior, or even Hope. Surely it couldn’t be either Melanie or Mia. They can’t take care of themselves let alone someone with such a serious problem as alcoholism. Supposedly, there is a huge story coming up for Maggie, so what else could it be? As for Mia, she is becoming more bold and brazen, not to mention ignorant, as the days go by. I don’t know what they plan to do with her, but right now she’s on the same train track as Kinsey for me. Maybe when the new Will enters into the picture, we will see some improvement, but right now she is a royal pain in the a$$. I don’t know who she thinks she is, or how she feels she has the right to speak to Carly, or anyone else for that matter, in that indignant tone when she has so many skeletons in her own closet. She needs a rude awakening, quick. I don’t see her as a young girl with a lot of troubles on her mind; I simply see her as rude and belligerent. Guess we need her mama to show up in Salem.January 26, 2010 at 4:49 pm #10010IzzyBParticipant
I think it will be Nathan and Mel that help Maggie. I think they will have some adult help with Hope, Bo, and a few others. But I am wondering if Mel and Nathan working together to help Maggie doesn’t bring the two of them closer. Also, Mel recently has been very nice to Maggie and said many times she is the closest thing to a mother, so I would think she would be very integrated into this SL.January 26, 2010 at 6:30 pm #1001353tdogsParticipant
bottles of alcohol in her home? That is like a druggie having "coke" in the house. Or a person who wishes to quit cigarettes, keeping a pack of smokes nearby. Yes, Maggie entertains at her home, but given the situation that she was a sponser (for Lucas), etc., she shouldn’t have alcohol in her home. I can see her having the alcohol at Chez Rouge because it’s her place of business, but enteraining at home, she should let her guests know that she doesn’t serve. So there isn’t really a reason for her to have it there. I sometimes think the writer’s make it soooooooooo convinent to write for themselves instead of working the story line a little harder.
Mia needs to be reminded how her feelings were hurt so many times because of her life situations. She needs to show a lot more compassion for other people. Granted Maggie is not altogether in her frame of mind due to her grief, I am glad that she started to point out to Mia the civilites and every day manners in how to treat people or Mia is doomed for a life on the Salem docks.January 26, 2010 at 10:49 pm #10024caseyParticipant
of Days to show liquor in a recovering alcoholic’s home. I hardly think Mags would keep it in her house, but I have no doubt it’s indeed a foreshadowing of her falling off the wagon. Having said that, I think it’s an opportunity for the writers and Suzanne to shine and not fall into some stereotypical drivel.January 27, 2010 at 12:45 pm #10031BonbonParticipant
I know of alcoholics who keep liquor in their homes. One says it’s to reinforce his recovery to know that it is right there if he wants it yet he can resist. I think it depends on the individual It’s like people who quit smoking. When I quit, I couldn’t have a cigarette anywhere near me or I’d have smoked it, yet I know many people that, even years after they quit, will keep a pack in their glove compartment or their night stand.
So, I don’t think it’s particularly irresponsible of the writers to have it there. Maggie has been sober for so many years she probably feels entirely in control. Yes, they can fall off the wagon at any time, but… It was probably there for all the visitors there for the funeral. Besides, if it wasn’t there, how could she start drinking again (as we all suspect she’s going to do, not a spoiler).January 28, 2010 at 2:16 pm #10056luckeyParticipant

Maggie chastised Melanie as well a day or two ago for being rude to Carly. She basically told her it was time to grow up and learn to keep her thoughts from spilling out of her mouth. She pointed out that regardless of her feelings, she has no right to be rude. She didn’t have that kind of guidance growing up, and maybe Maggie’s mentoring will help her mature into a graceful lady. She could be a young Maggie, elegant and fiery all at the same time.January 29, 2010 at 7:42 pm #10097IzzyBParticipant
Or did I miss a scene between Maggie and Mel?January 29, 2010 at 9:39 pm #10103loritrollParticipant
She had that conversation with both Mia and Melanie.
