If you are getting caught up via reruns you will see in season one Mac and Stella worked in the lab alot more. Now Mac justs snorts and stomps around asking everyone what up. I've not been watching season seven... cant stomach having the new gal in my face so much..and I miss Stella alot . Plus have to say after reading the recent comments by Pam Veasey and her newest drivel to get Mac hooked up again this time with Jo (HHHMMM Stella wasnt good enough I guess) she is turning it into a soap opera.:lol: Season one Mac and Stell were in the lab alot and my favorite has to be season one "Creatures of the night". Stella was soo frustrated because she was at a loss to find convicting evidence.. Danny and Aiden (oh how I miss THOSE days) were walking out the door to go home but turned around and came back to help her.:thumbsup: Then Mac did the same It was one of my favorites scenes. Needless too say the team privailed and found the evidence and got the criminal:thumbsup:Oh to get such joy out of a program again. *sigh* Stellas zest and agility is a huge void and leaves the show lacking IMO. Another lab favorite... when Stell asked Mac why he had not taken off his wedding ring yet...because I dont want too was his response. O.K says she.... Doesnt push, doesnt pry, just respects. Never has ANYONE had such an intimite moment as that, with Mac, as Stella had. Great chemistry, best of friends, missed opportunity.....so sad.
