I had read someplace else (can't remember where;its been months ago) that Emily and Eva both were trying to get him reinstated (so to speak). Forgive me for not remembering where. From now on I will bring it up immediately (as not to forget). As far as the E/C act; just read the board. Not to mention all the fans screaming about his fulltime return; the continuation of the E/C drama and some fans wanting to keep both Adam and EC. This whole situation has overshadowed the season. Esp. with the will they or won't they; get married, have a baby; make everyone sick in the process. I call it the Calleigh/Eric fiasco. :brickwall::brickwall: I realize he has only been in a few epi.; but I prefer he not be there at all, b/c when he is everyone else suffers on screentime. As far as having proof that they are in control; I don't think they have complete control (as you say); but they sure can influence or sway people. Adam has tweeted before; telling the fans if they want his return to write CBS. I am not saying anything that hasn't been out there for awhile. This whole thing has gotten out of control. IMO the actors themselves are not activly participating; but they fueled the already raging fire. It doesn't help the situation any when Adam tweets and leaves some of his fans to speculate on the situation. Bottom line is Miami has too may actors to accomodate all of them without having to sacrifice someone permemantly or placing one on recurring status. I don't beleive Jon is that person. However, like some have mentioned TPTB will do what they want. And yes we have considered a petition for Jon's increased screentime. Most of the time I read these posts and do not respond; but the speculation on Jon being the scrificial lamb because of his legal issue, should not even enter into this discussion. He is not as well known as some others who have been in trouble, but he is a big part of the series and would take a huge amount of fans with him; if he were to leave. With that being said; I don't want to offend anyone.
