You have no problem criticizing other characters/actors so I don't see how people criticizing Stella or Melina Kanakaredes is considered "bashing." Also, I don't see how other forums have anything to do with this one. If it didn't happen on screen it didn't happen. Unless we get something said on screen that makes it clear that Angell either does or doesn't know that Stella has gone rogue we can't say what's going on either way. I don't think Stella would put anyone's life in danger in a malicious way, but I can see her being so blinded to her determination to get the bad guy that she didn't tell Angell about Mac's disapproval. Angell is a cop so she knows that anything she does on the job has the potential to become dangerous at any moment; Stella doesn't have to tell her that. But if she didn't tell her about Mac's order to stand down she's taken away Angell's right to choose wether to put herself in danger or follow Mac's order and leave it alone. I'n not Jolein, but I will respond to this. The thing is that Danny felt responsible, and actually there are a fair amount of viewers who felt he was partly responsible as well. No, he didn't pull the trigger, but Ruben was under his care and he left the boy to get home on his own in a dangerous situation. He felt responsible enough that he put himself in front of Ollie Barnes and told Rikki to shoot him if she wanted payback from the person responsible. I personally don't equate extreme guilt and grief with obsessiveness.
