*attempting to catch up*

This is great. I wonder at what point they decided to switch from Abby/Stephen to Abby/Connor? This ep would seem to suggest it was very early on, otherwise they probably wouldn't have brought in a backstage girlfriend for Stephen.

Yes, this ep does seem to be the turning point for the whole Abby/Stephen - Abby/Connor thing. I'm pretty sure than from here on there's no further mention of Abby/Stephen at all, and they seem to come to some mutual agreement to forget about it. I'm not sure what order they filmed the episodes in, but there does seem to have been some hasty re-writing by the time they got to this one.

Alison does seem to be a convenient excuse to put an end to the A/S relationship, though. They needed some reason why Abby would be completely put off, and why Stephen wouldn't be interested in a relationship with Abby, but Alison is never mentioned again after this ep.

I vageuly recall something about the series being written and filmed in twoo blocks, and that the first three eps were more of less planned out well beforehand, so maybe when they started and saw how the actors played off each other they did a little hasty tweaking in the first three and then wrote the rest with Abby/Connor in mind.

Although Stephen still seems to have strong feelings for Abby in the later eps.

That sounds about right, actually. I have a feeling you're right about the blocks of three, so that would explain why the emphasis was on A/S in the first three eps, and then dropped completely for the second three.

Although Stephen still seems to have strong feelings for Abby in the later eps.

Which bits are you thinking of in particular? The only ones I can think of are the occasions when Abby is in danger and he rushes to rescue her in both 1.4 and 1.6.

That would kind of be them, though I suppose you can also see it as him just being protective.
