And the character of Megan continues and ends in her downturn
5 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I"m sure the episode might have been fine if they didn't continue the blind girl's penchant for leading Rockford on.

I liked her in the two part episode that she debuted in. She wasn't irritating and I was glad of that because I've never been a fan of Beth Davenport.

In her second episode that she starred in, I really started to dislike her. She and Rockford kept their relationship open but she never tells him that she's going to get married to someone else until after she got engaged. Now there's just something that doesn't sit right with me.

And now here comes this movie. I'm guessing her fiancé or whoever she married realized what an emotionally manipulative cow she was before he finally divorced her. And so she screws Rockford in the cabin, knowing he had lingering feelings and then a few scenes later tells him that she's going to remarry the poor sap that she married in the first place.

Of all the characters I wanted to see an ending for, this brat wasn't it.
