I Hope I'm Not The Only One To Find This Creepy...
Ashley's baby-naming technically isn't the most disturbing part of her storyline, as she is actually no longer pregnant, and only thinks she is still having a baby because of Adam's full throttle gaslighting, which is truly dark, but I can't help but be disturbed all the same.
Ashley: But I'm not going to. Bottom line is, I'm really happy, and I've been thinking.
Victor: Thinking about what?
Ashley: Baby names.
Victor: Boy or girl?
Ashley: Mm, I keep feeling like it's gonna be a girl. I don't know why. The one name that I keep coming back to is Hope, but if Hope isn't an option for you, I understand.
Victor:Well, this is a child of hope. I think it's very appropriate. And I adore you.
Ashley: I adore you, too.
FIRST OF ALL, this is not a child of hope. It is a child of defying the odds, and baffling the entire medical community, and grossing out hordes of viewers.
SECONDLY, who even entertains the notion of naming their child after their significant other's dead ex-wife? Aren't those names automatically off limits?! I realize that eliminating the names of all of Victor's ex-wives doesn't leave you many names to choose from, but still!
THIRDLY, how much farther off the deep end will Adam go when he learns of this latest development? He's pretty far gone as is, but this grossly inappropriate line of thought may even make him do even crazier thing than...well, okay, not much is crazier than dressing in drag in order to drive your father's girlfriend crazy, really, but if there is anything crazier, I have faith that he will find it.
