Walkers being always in the middle of a crisis it would be quite refreshing to show something else. And I just dislike when they show others agonising endlessly about some stupidity and almost nothing about Kevin and Scotty.
Oh, I'd definitely like to see more of them as well. The issue is that agonizing is central to the show's premise (as is Callista Flockhart it often seems) and so we don't get as much as we might want.
The other issue is that Kevin is used in relation to the other characters and not just in his own storyline. So right now for example we had the Kevin/Tommy conflict. Kevin is also the brother most commonly relied upon for help by the others (Justin is too unreliable and Tommy is too self-absorbed). So Kevin is usually on disaster cleanup in his siblings', mother's and uncle's lives.
That, unfortunately, often excludes Scotty in the same way that Julia is absent from most of Tommy's scenes. It was like the ugly breakfast scene in this last episode. He was there, but how else could he have been used in the scene? In most cases new in-laws generally try to lay low when their new family starts fighting amongst themselves and Scotty appears to be no exception.
I also would have liked to see Kevin and Scotty go on a honeymoon but the pace of the storytelling doesn't allow for. Remember that Kitty and Robert had "36 hours" for their's I believe.
However, we have been promised some Kevin/Scotty drama this season, so hope is there.
