I can't believe I haven't written a single word in this thread yet! This is just outrageous! :lol: For starters, I am for sure a shipper, but a sane one. I definitely find it enjoyable to watch characters getting closer and closer, chemistry and tension are always most welcome. But if I think that the writers are going too far, or in a wrong direction, or that their focusing on possible or already existing ship harms the show itself, I always say it. I was prepared for some flirting, chemistry and tension before s7, due to my strong belief that Sela Ward can flirt with anyone who's her partner and does it on every show she's in. And I def. got it, starting from "The 34th Floor". Jo seems to have an interesting dynamic with every team member and she's naturally fliratious with every guy around her. (At the beginning, though, I wasn't exactly sure if her ultimate "target" would be Flack or Mac but I think the more time passed by, the clearer the answer for this question was.) I enjoyed watching Mac being not so sure (finally!) around her, not knowing what how to react to her playfulness. Their scenes soon became those I was looking for (not only, ofc.). Bringing Jo gave me a chance to take a break from angsty Mac I do not like to see (I like Mac way too much to enjoy watching him like this); she introduced me to Mac who's smiling, relaxed, not working he's head off. I think I could love her for that (if only I haven't been already in love with her for all she is and does). So, I'm not exactly sure where this whole thing went out of control. One minute I was like "Okay, I like them together A LOT" and then I found myself in a state shortly described as: "WHERE are they? I need them on my screen NOW". :lol: Okay, I don't want to sound like a crazy, obsessed teen. I am far from that. But I'm not gonna lie either: as much as sanity is my most recognizable feature (wow, that sounds way to posh!), I am helpless in a battle with Jo/Mac thing. And it's not only the flirting I like, obviously. I think they got really close through this whole season, I enjoyed their "open ups", both on Jo's and Mac's side. Well, I like pretty much everything about them. Spoiler: season 8 I don't like this whole idea of giving everyone a love affair but I have to be truthful with myself: I think Jo and Mac have nice prospects here. If only written in right way, they could work. Okay, I could go much longer with this, pointing out my favourite moments and discussing every scene they shared, but I'm not sure if anyone is actually reading this thread or is willing to talk. But if someone is... Well, I am always ready.
