Yeah, first of all, I totally agree with Lori and second, I will say this again and again if I have to: Gillian was supposed to be a "love interest" too, so was Jordan and so was pyscho Drew for Stella and what happened in the end?! Absolutely NOTHING! Oh and remember how they announced the firefighter?! Like it would be this huge great relationship for Stella and what happened? We got to see him twice for 2 minutes and that was that! Finito! I don't like that Amick person either but if we keep driving ourselves nuts it won't change anything either! And who says she'll stay? Maybe she'll only be there for a few episodes! I don't think it matters that much if people like her or not, because people seemed to like Haylen too and she was gone again in an instant! If TPTB want someone gone, they'll let them go. Simple as that. Also, they are professionals at fooling the audience and managed to confuse us more times than I can count. I'm sorry, but I really don't know what else to say. Btw, i tried to state my opinion on the new love interest topic, or actually on smacked on the main discussion forum in the spoiler thread because I was sick of the way smacked shippers were judged and ridiculed in there and that's the reply I got: So much for voicing our opinion. They don't want to hear it there.
