Re: Season 8 Spoiler Discussion - There's Nothing You Can't Do In New The storyline is to show how Danny is dealing with the new responsibility. And they are going to show that. I just think that Danny needs to be at the lab. If he's not at the lab, its not like he is a homicide detective or anything so he doesn't have any reason to be in the show. And the way that they are bringing him back to the lab is the most realistic way. How else would they do it? I think that the only reason he would give up his promotion is for his family.
