Seriously??

So, brainiacfive recorded this week's Breakout Kings because the promos had Unexpected Christina Cole With Credible American Accent. (I really need to stop being surprised by pond-jumping actors. It's not like it's rare.)

She's the main guest star (i.e. the escapee of the week), and clearly having an absolute blast playing this total manipulative psychopath. It's an awesome gig in virtually every way... except for the part where she has a FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD-KID. Who, unlike Malachi, presumably did not get that way in the course of a few months.

Yes, Hex (Cassie) and/or Doctor Who (Lilith in "The Shakespeare Code") fans, you are thinking of the right Christina Cole. The one who is a month shy of twenty-eight and does not look at all otherwise. And while there is ample discussion of how this woman knocked off two husbands, there is not word one about her having been a teen mom.

Seriously, American TV industry, WHAT THE ACTUAL WHAT?? And people wonder why Elizabeth McGovern and Gillian Anderson basically just don't come home anymore...

Doubly bizarre, there was no particular plot reason why the kid had to be a teenager! There was no dialogue or action with him that wouldn't have worked just as well with nine- or ten-year-old. Which would at least take it out of "babies having babies" territory and shift it into just "married young."
