The year started off with Fancy getting raped. It was actually a continuation of what occurred towards the end of the previous year. I really was not expecting to witness another torture. It's sickening to see the way women are treated on this show. It's as if they don't have a voice. They appear weak and pathetic and cannot think for themselves. Speaking of weak and pathetic, what was the point of turning Jessica into a prostitute? It's not like the storyline made Grace come home to give her some direction. Jessica was turned into another tortured soul who had no voice. It's as if she was a puppet with Spike holding the puppet strings and giving her directions. That was such a waste of valuable screen time for the actress.
