Actually, I originally posted that whole post on a different thread and then transfered it here instead (since it was a more proper place). I was just upset over what I had read CM said and I was just ranting. Though I did at one time think that Stetler could be a mole or something, after watching some old episodes from a few seasons ago, I've changed my mind. He does seem like a decent guy for the most part. And once I calmed some (after reading what CM said), I realized that the Stetler stuff wouldn't sound right anyway, but I forgot to delete that part before transfering the post here. So, please just ignore that. I have now corrected the previous post. As for whether or not Rick hit Yelina: if I recall, H asked her if Rick hit her and she didn't really answer him which Horatio basically took as a yes. No one ever came right out and said it, but it definitely seemed to be implied. And didn't they mention Stetler going to counseling or anger management or something? If so then that would further seem that they were implying that he did something wrong. But, they never really did clarify for 100%. Seriously though, they are trying to make us think that Ron is behind it and he may very well be (or that H set up the whole thing to get Ron), but that's if the writers go the predictable way. I think it would make 100% more sense for them to be less predictable and have it be someone from H's past that we've maybe forgotten about (for the most part). Maybe some of those guys from Brazil (or wherever it was that they went after Marisol's killers) or maybe O'Shea or that judge got someone to do it. Or maybe it had something to do with that dude who shot at people while he was on his boat and ended up killing his driver due to tunnel vision ... and then the dude represented himself in court. He was pretty peeved when H got the evidence to put him away for the driver's murder when he couldn't get him for the woman's murder. If they make it Ryan, it's jumping the shark. Ryan told H he owes him for going to bat for him to get him his job back. He'd have absolutely no reason to want H dead. I hate that CM and others in TBTB are using wordplay to try to make us think that. We're not stupid and I'm tired of shows' writers treating the fans/viewers like we're stupid. It's annoying. Like we're actually going to believe H is really dead or that the one person who has the most gratitude toward H may be involved? Come on now! I can pretty much guarantee it won't be the #1 show anymore if they were to do that.
