1) I know, it just says "sparks". I guess that, at this point, none of us believe that TPTB are very subtle when it comes to spoilers. 2) The main cast is Mac, Stella, Danny, Lindsay, Hawkes, Flack, Sid, and Adam. Angell is recurring. Out of those nine people, four of them are currently in a relationship of some kind. Two are married. And now two "realized the spark". That is a lot for that small of a team. I wouldn't necessarily call it "soapish", but I don't really think it fits the show. 3) That's what they said about Danny/Lindsay. Do we really want Mac and Stella to end up like them? Face it, no matter how much I like Flack/Angell, TPTB sucks at relationships. I have no faith in TPTB to do this at all right. The reason I don't like it is because I just do not see them as a couple. I know that this is a different opinion than some other's have, and maybe I don't have any concrete reasons, but that's just how I feel. Like I said, maybe I'll change my opinions if they do get together, but until that happens I'm firm in my belief that this just isn't a good idea. As for Adam and Hawkes, I'm fine with them being in relationships, just not with someone in the lab. Welcome to CSI: Fan Fiction. We have cookies.
