Well, from the recent news, it seems your worry is more than right in this situation. Apparently come Season Nine, fans will discover that Jesse has been killed by a guy the team has been after for a while.:shifty: Whatever faith I had in Miami that was restored in Season 8 is now gone, shattered to million pieces. I just don't get it, what is even the point of this! Why even bring in a new character when all you're gonna do is shove him out the door the second your favorite comes back. It's so disrespect and utterly disgusting.:scream: Just to clarify my previous statements. I don't blame Adam for Eddie's departure, although I did not appreciate his statement of reassurance to the fans that no one would be dropped because of his return, he has been in this business long enough to know someone would pay the price for his return. But in the end, Adam does not have the control to chuck someone off the show, no one but TPTB could have. So the real blame lies with TPTB, not Adam. Adam can't help who TPTB prefers more. I am upset with Eddie's departure and Jesse's completely senseless murder for the sole reason that Eddie/Jesse had given me a reason to return to Miami after a 5 year sabbatical. With Jesse, I saw an honest humble man who simply wanted to do his best, whatever drama that was in his life, he never felt the need to make a big deal out of it. Jesse was the fresh blood that was needed on the show, against the backdrop of all these dramatic characters with dramatic pasts, he was the steady dependable normal guy, a refreshing face for a show that tended to hover around over the top. I never felt the need to ship anyone in Miami, but the moment Jesse, Walter, and Ryan had their first scenes together, I knew straight away that they were comedic gold! And since that first moment, I wanted to see so much more of them. The three boys brought a new feeling to Miami, a sense of humor against the darkness and the drama. I could always count the boys to give me something to laugh about in every episode, whether it's Jesse saving Ryan and Walter from the bear, or the boys in a farm field, or Jesse and Walter having a blast on the g-force plane. I felt happy watching them, their laughter and humor was so contagious! Now sadly, it will all be for nothing, because Jesse will be killed off senselessly, and no one will ever remember who Jesse is because he is not deemed as an important character. They could have just kept him alive and send him back to LA or something, instead TPTB does the only thing they know how to do, kill. Why TPTB even bother to hype up Jesse so much and give him such an established character history if they won't even bother to put those storyline potential to good use? Why even do it when they just wanted to get rid of him? It's no wonder Miami is going down hill. I have never felt this disappointed with a show, but then again, with the same sort of crap happening on NY and Vegas, I really shouldn't be surprised. The CSI franchise has been taking a beating for a while, and I have a feeling with the way they are going, it won't take long before it comes to an end. This franchise has disappointed me. I for one will not be a returning viewer once after I see how Jesse's storyline ends. I already took one sabbatical from Miami, what's another more.
