Sydney and Michael in episode 3 with the flashbacks! This was the BIGGEST FLAW in the return of the series! The writers made up the worst way to prove Syd faked her death from someone who wanted to kill Craig! They probably did not know Carter was her lover before Craig--It would have been better had Sydney been stalked by Carter until her wedding night and then when he saw her run over he took her away and paid that doctor to say she died! That would have been so much better than Martin Abbott which I think they were going to expose at some point and never once did! Plus the writers knew smack of the original! And Carter was not from her past! Martin Abbott happened in 1995 and this was only 2 years later when she was run over! Plus---SAM's Dad ran her over! SOOOOOOO DUMB! Made nooooooo sense! Had Carter faked her death it would have made sooo much more sense! He was RICH! He whisked her away and then died on some island and Syd inherited his money and that's how she bought Melrose Place! She was so poor to buy anything! Also Michael was up and about and had rare bandages on his hands after Peter threw him through the window at Burns Mancini! Michael's hands were fully bandaged at least a month later after Syd was killed! He couldn't have done that in that scenario! Made no sense at all! Syd also told Auggie that Michael made her so depressed she drank and was an alcoholic when they were married in 1994! LIE! That never happened! She was a prostitute but that's it! I couldn't wait for the show to be cancelled after that! Jane returns--we don't hear about Kyle if she was still with him or if they broke up! We don't hear if she had the baby she was pregnant with in 1999 or what! Jo returns and says some guy proposed to her and she let him go-- I wonder if that was Domonick O'Malley or some other guy! We don't even hear if they were still together or what happened to him! Amanda comes back and says she was bored with the Island and Peter! She doesn't say how she got away with faking her death OR if Peter was still on the island or where he is now!
