I don't remember the early seasons of the show being quite this volatile, and I don't think it's fair to split the cast so clearly in terms of those who have hair triggers when it comes to chaotic outbursts and those who don't. It's like they're asking the people capable of being calmer to be the balance for those who aren't mature enough to do so, and the folks who aren't so outwardly abrasive are there to work on their own problems too. They're not strong enough to be the support system for people whose behavior is so problematic. Heck, it's getting to Shelly, and she's been clean and sober for years, not days. For that matter, I've never been addicted to anything, and I don't think I could be around that 24/7 without wanting to climb the walls.
