Two for the Price of One

I feel vindicated, especially with Steve John Shepherd's exit interview.

Specifically, this:-

"Michael is a functioning psychopath and he has a clinical lack of empathy. He doesn't really care what you think or feel.

Excellent. SJS knows his character and knows what a "functioning psychopath" is. In fact, he's identified himself as one to Jack and in the same conversation, identified another character on the show as a psychopath.


In that fabled conversation in the portacabin a few weeks ago, Michael explained, painstakingly, to Jack the reason why he hated Ronnie.

Because I recognise her, she's just like me. She's a functioning psychopath.

Lest anyone be left in any doubt, she revealed this when she threatened Alfie in the last episode, saying she doesn't care what happened in the past. She wouldn't. She has no empathy, or else, she wouldn't even have returned to Walford. She doesn't give a rat's arse about what anyone thinks of her, and she obsesses as much over Roxy as Michael does over Scarlett. That's nothing to do with love, that's control. It was the same with Ronnie and Jack. She thought the only way she could exercise control over Jack was by having his child. Now she's got rid of that particular obsession, Jack was a sex toy and nothing more.

People on the show are making the same excuses for her as they did for Michael, and I want her found out.

Michael knows what she is. It takes one to know one.
