I love Spinelli. I do. He brings a breath of fresh air & yes, romance to this very dark show & he & Maxie are adorable together. But, like Wile E. Coyote, he needs an anvil dropped on his head! He is completely clueless. Even more clueless than Sonny. He asks people for advice & promptly ignores what they tell him because it isn't what he wants to hear. He even ignores Maxie, his beloved soulmate. I realize he's been in a bubble for most of his life, but he's been out of that bubble for a couple of years already. Surely by now, he knows when someone is deliberately avoiding giving him an answer. He's also been around Maxie long enough to know when she's trying to spare his feelings. Now, he's going to Mac to ask for her hand in marriage? He knows Mac can't stand him. Does he really expect Mac to say yes? Ordinarily, his cluelessness is cute & charming in it's own way, but this story is turning cute & charming into irritating. They are setting him up for a crushing letdown when she pulls an Alexis & runs out of the church & flags down a semi to escape. This is not fair to the fans of Spinelli or Spixie.
