Maybe Gwen will finally get a personality.
Too little, way too late. Gwen has been defined by nothing but her death for the lifetime of four generations. The only people this appeases are her deluded stans who can't accept they lost the war to MJ and Felicia.
Yuri's inclusion means it's just another excuse to force feed Brand New Day continuity and characters into the 'vintage' timeline, remember when Gwen met Carlie Cooper? Yeah, me neither.
If this isn't leading up to Gwen being revealed as Kindred, I don't know what is.
