I don´t think there´s a pro- or contra attitude towards Adella concerning the producers. It´s true they always play with lots of ideas and story lines, but very often they get lost without a trace. Haylen is the best example: they announced her as the new recurring character, giving her a mysterious aura that she has a secret and then after only three episodes, they let her story drop. And I don´t think the only reason is that she didn´t really appeal to the audience. Most fans were surely willing to wait and give her a chance to develop her character, before they finally judge on her; and TPTB know that and therefore if they had really wanted to keep Haylen, they would have done so, regardless of the fans´initial comments. They could have changed her profile to a somewhat more positive and nicer character to make her more appealing to the fans. But instead they dropped her completely, because they changed the direction towards a new love interest for Mac. And I guess the same happened with Adella, although in this case there might also add a certain lack of courage. You mentioned "My name is Mac Taylor" and that the originally written final scene with Adam and Stella was supposed to be the two going out for a pizza together. But it was changed into the famous lab scene with the two sitting in front of the PC-screens and having fun with searching their own and their team mates´names. Sweet and lovely as this scene was nonetheless, but it also showed that apparently TPTB already were not brave enough to go for the Adella-idea, although this story was already in their minds then. So instead of letting their flirtations grow into a romance, TPTB culminated them in a mere one-night-stand and let whatever they already might have written for Adella drop for good. The same might happen with Hawkes- where is his love interest, and where is his arc? For now it looks as though he´s only getting one more Sheldon-centered episode in 6.19 and I doubt that the love interest will still happen in this season. I could add more examples of such dropped ideas and stories and I agree that especially in this season there seems a massive instability and lack of continuity. I understand that sometimes TPTB drop ideas when they feel they won´t turn into good stories, but they should decide about such things BEFORE they put the first chapter on the screen and not inmidst or after a few episodes and keep us wondering what´s happened to this or that story. Oh, and on another note: please don´t be too strong with Debbie, after all she and her smacked family are nice to Non-Smackies like me and let me post in their thread and write my opinions, even if they are not Pro-Smacked . And Debs just wrote her opinion about Adella and she did it in a fair way. I thought in this thread you can write anything Adella-related, and that´s what she did, even if she isn´t a fan of Adella.
