When Paige is confronting her parents, she says, "you're going to keep on lying to me," before turning away from them and sitting at the dinner table alone. But the words don't match her lips; she apparently said something slightly different and it was dubbed over. See more »

Paige the brat
28 October 2018 | by mtrodeomomSee all my reviews

I'm really over Paige. She is so whiny and selfish, even for a teenager. I know why the writers are making her so self-absorbed, but they went over board. I was her age in that year, and I would never have been allowed to act like she has been. I just can't find a redeemable anything in her. I know she's frustrated because she knows something is going on, but she's very disrespectful to her parents. And I do think they are trying to introduce her into their world in as gentle a way as possible. Every scene with her pulls me right out of the story. The other characters seem plausible and real, but there's something too forced with her character.
