Wow, I could care less about this whole story line around Cathy and Alex and Roy. In the beginning I was kind of into the pairing of Roy and Cathy. But now, since they've made Cathy and Alex a package deal, it all seems too forced and contrived. They come across like users and Roy deserves better. I hope they ship the pair of them off somewhere...anywhere.

Trouble was he wasn't very convincing in this role, poorly acted.
