I completely agree, Thomas is just repugnant. There are love-to-hate characters, Stefano DiMera comes to mind, but I don't love to hate Thomas, I'm just completely creeped-out by him & don't want to see him onscreen at all. I started watching regularly in summer, 2011. That was right at the inception of TOD II. Thomas glommed onto Hope & manipulated her into a relationship, which she was never really into, because she'd just broken up with Liam, who insta-married Steffy. Then, he moved on to Caroline, only to lose her to Rick. When he left, he wasn't missed. Then, he came back, & completely glommed onto Caroline again, even though she was in a serious relationship with his father. Finally, he met Sally, & they actually fit. He wasn't creepy with her, he wasn't inappropriate, they just fit. Then, he left her for Caroline, only to be in a platonic, co-parenting relationship with her, because, unbeknownst to us, he never got over Hope, who really was never into him, even though we saw that he was legit in love with Sally. There is not one good trait in the character, save for his child. Killing Caroline in such a definitive way was such a huge, huge mistake, but sending this creepy version of Thomas back to LA was even worse. He needs to go to Milan, or wherever, but they should cut their losses with this character. Every version of Thomas is vile & creepy on some level, it's not going to get better.
