  • Surprised that Erica & Palmer were never a couple

    It has always surprised me that Erica & Palmer were never a couple just friends Erica dated almost every man in Pine Valley expect Palmer.

    I think she didn't go after Palmer because of Opal. And they had a special bond that was unlike any other on the show

      Wasn't Palmer always a lot older than Erica? Even during Palmer's younger years, he looked way older than Erica, more her mother's age.

        It wasn't just the age difference. When the show started, it was all about the class divides. Erica was desperate to cross that divide, and Palmer (along with Phoebe and a few of the other stalwarts) represented all the blue-blooded old-money snobbery that wouldn't deign to give Erica and her mother the time of day. With each marriage/relationship, Erica learned something. Through her marriage to Adam, Erica learned that if you were wealthy enough (even if the money were new and tainted by crime), the old money concerns mattered a whole lot less. Through her marriage to Travis, she finally got the old money name and respectability she had always craved -- and realized how little it mattered to her.

        Also of note is Palmer's weird Pygmalion pattern. Daisy was the housekeeper's pretty young daughter. Donna was a reformed prostitute. Opal was the town ne'er do well. He kept picking these women he thought he could "fix" and mold into the perfect image of something else. Two out of three went running for the hills. Erica, while a middle class high schooler when the show started, was never malleable, never someone who could be easily molded into an image. And Palmer probably picked up on that. 🤣
