Nicely put. I've always liked Ben. He killed 4 people (originally). That can't be forgotten or easily forgiven. However unlike most of Salem he has shown remorse, received help and has continued to be committed to being a better person. He also does not play the hypocrite role like so many people in this town. Kristen, Kate, Nicole, Sami, Abigail, probably Julie (didn't realize it was mostly women) have done some horrible things but most of them act like they never had a devious past.
And please God no. Don't let Nicole walk down this road once again. How many times can we play this record?
