Hmmmm, although I'm hoping for a recovery-stage, I don't think it'll last half the season. Granted, Natalia has been through a hell of alot this season and she deserves a little recovery-time but I doubt TPTB would streach it over season 10. One or two episodes at the most. I agree with you MJ - The Nick plot has been used time and time again. I think it's starting to hold Natalia back a little. Although it shows it's something that'll always affect her I think it's better to leave that alone. I've said this on the Ryan/Natalia thread - but I honestly think TPTB have been building up their relationship through season 8 & 9. Especially at the introduction of Molly. With rumors/suspicions that season 10 may be Miami's last, I atleast hope they both get together before the end. A case refering to Nat's FBI days would be interesting. Maybe one that involves a case she once worked or her having to talk to some contacts like before. I'm sure Mickey is gone for good but I'd like to see him again. Though hostile I loved their interaction too. Nat has to survive the premire.....I've a pitchfork,chainsaw and Irish anger TPTB better not kill her off or I'll get Hulk mad!!!! :scream: Fellow Natters unite!
