I really don't know. The only spoiler I've read about that could be it is the Spoiler: upcoming plot dangerous or forbidden relationship . (Please don't forget to use spoiler tags here!) It reminds me of what they did with the character of Vega...turned him into a murderer. That still ticks me off. And screw the 300th episode. I'm not watching. I'm not watching anything without George in it. But really it could have been anything at this point if he's as frustrated as we have been with the writing and the character. That said, whatever the argument was or whatever, if they are the ones who made him take time off then there is no way in hell I'd go back. That's treating him like some newbie actor on the set who shouldn't have stood up for himself and his character, and that is NOT George. Pissed to no end that they are screwing him out of the ONE episode that looked promising...the 300th with Marg coming back. Those people are asses.
