It is too late in the story line for this show to recover. The damage is beyond repair to the characters and the story line. Junior should have been fired months ago, about the time Avery left the show. I can understand new actors taking over characters, characters being added and dropped, the story line goes on. But this sadistic story line with Sage's baby, is beyond repair. Maybe all the long time actors are ready to retire or go on to other things. I'm going on to other things. I quit watching a few months ago, but it is just so sad to see a great show get trashed this way.
