I do not like this storyline. I know they're planting the seeds of a huge storyline later in the year or even next year, but I hate it when they're cruel to one of my favourite characters (Kylie, in this case)

I think it's odds on Kylie WILL carry on with the pregnancy for no other reason than to have the abortion would leave bigger questions for the characters safely unanswered, ie., boring TV.

Having the baby means potentially explosive storylines for several of the characters and conflict is what it's all about, isn't?

As for Kylie, the production team need just a tad more care when earmarking different scriptwriters for episodes where she is centre stage.

I've already posted, awhile back on how they made Kylie employ the word 'euphemism' when explaining a joke at Audrey's expense. A word that a girl from her background would NEVER use, let alone understand and would instantly label you as a 'type' if you used it in her presence.

Later, continuing her character's
maturing, it was most gratifying to see her natural entrepreneurial skills on display when she TOOK CHARGE of Nick's Bistro and rearranged double bookings into a shared buffet and by wily manipulation, successfully deflating future complaints by offering the party booker a free dinner for her and her partner. Even Eva (as well as Nick) was in awe of her skills that night!

Cue last week, where a distracted Kylie made faux pas after faux pas by not knowing the difference of a wedding 'toast' and the breakfast variety of toast with a 'doh' look on her face and sarcastic Mickey-taking from David.
Remember this was the girl who single-handly rearranged the dinning arrangements that would defeat an experienced caterer.

In other words someone in production alters a character's core being, just to 'paste' a clever joke around them.

So which way are the production team going with this?

Is it: Empty-headed Rosie-like thicko -

or

Maturing young lady, getting the opportunity to show her get-up-and-go, whilst displaying innate natural born management leader skills, culled maybe from fending for herself in the hard school of knocks from earlier times?

Kylie is a character that has caught viewer's imagination as they say, (future Elsie Tanner?) And as such the producers et al need to up their game on the small stuff of this character.

Well said Danny. The inconsistent behaviour of characters is a real bug bear of mine too!- Micky

Well said indeed Danny-K! We just have to look at the disaster that is Sunita when you have inconsistent behaviour or a character totally re-drawn to fit into a not thought out daft storyline.

To be fair, Kylie did have an awful lot on her mind that evening! I too hate it when a character's personality is abruptly and rudely changed, we always referred to it, in online circles as the PTF, Personality Transplant Fairy.

Wow, I think you should shut up and stop pretending to be one of the script writers.
