*WARNING* Major spoilers through episode 16, and beyond if this thread lives that long. Last chance, because we've got SPOILERS here folks... OK. Given all the discussion in the spoiler thread about the possibility of an Angell/Danny/Lindsay love triangle, I figured it might be good to take discussion to a separate thread, lest all future spoilers get buried beneath a heated debate. So let's have that debate here (but please keep it friendly ). The spoilers from episode 16, "Heart of Glass" have sparked a big debate on love triangles (which, admittedly, we don't know if this will end up being). I have to say, at first I rolled my eyes, but I'm kind of coming around to the idea. And I don't think it's a misstep on the writers' part--let's face it, love triangles get people talking. Remember how everyone's jaw dropped when in Friends Rachel was waiting at the airport to tell Ross how she felt about him and he got off the plane...with his new girlfriend, Julie? Or how everyone cheered when Jim and Pam kissed in The Office...only to have the next season open with Pam finally single...and Jim dating Karen? Love triangles get people talking. CSI: NY isn't a sitcom, and I doubt the love triangle (again, if there is one) will be nearly as dominant as that. But will it get people talking? You bet (check out the spoiler thread ). Will it get the attention of the media (like TV Guide, etc.)? Probably. And given that NY is about to face its toughest competition yet in Lost, that's not a bad thing at all. There's also the matter of the show being sexed up this season. I've seen many adjectives applied to the Danny and Lindsay pairing, but sexy isn't one of them. Given that the moment between Danny and Angell in episode 16 is supposed to be sexually charged, that will be in direct opposition to Danny and Lindsay, whom I usually see referred to as cute. I'm hoping Angell is a serious contender for Danny and not merely being used as a temporary roadblock for the Danny and Lindsay pairing, but aside from that, I say bring it on. Because I admit--I'm curious.
