Ok so at this point I don't particularly care if anyone takes offence at this comment but the only possible explanation for this new love interest for Mac idea is that Veasey is completely and utterly insane, not only as the cheese completely gone but the cracker too. There is not a bunny left in her hutch or a sandwich left in her picnic basket not only is the show constantly hitting new lows when it comes to the ratings not to mention the all powerful 18-49 demo, not only is it permenantly stuck in the worse possible slot it could be but our genius commander in chief thinks it's a good idea to try to hook up Mac with anyone but our beloved Stella. How dense is she? From the dreadful Peyton, through Quinn, Ella McBride,Aubrery et al I don't think it could have been made any clear, louder or obvious that it's our Stella and Smacked we want from the moment we met Mac and Stella in the Miami based pilot it always was and it always will be nothing and nobody else is good enough. Is you wanted to guarrentee the show be canceled than this my friends would be the way to do it since 99.99999999999999999999% of the audience is only hanging in there on the off chance a Smacked type miracle might occur. So if anybody wants to flame me please feel free because I can't think of anything more unwanted, unnecessary or hated than yet another pathetic love interest for Mac. RIP CSI:NY we knew you well.
