I am worried about how they will write Stella off the show. I wouldn't be surprised if they'd started the new season out with a funeral and say that Stella came to Danny's to help with the Shane situation and that it was her that Shane shot. That would be stupid if they did that, but it really would not surprise me at this point. I cannot think of how they would write her out. I hope they don't pull the "nypd had budget cuts and decided to let Stella go" thing.
