Oh God. That's just a perfect spot for a puking smiley. Makes me lose respect for Zuiker, especially if he thinks the whole D/L thing is a great Idea. Makes me really wonder why it was that Vanessa Ferlito left the show, now. Perhaps they were thinking of doing the same with her and she was having none of it. IIRC, wasn't her reason for leaving something about how she was homesick for New York, or something? that just reeks of PC, non-answer. (I know that's just pure speculation, so slap me if I'm off base there) There's a big chance that's what TPTB intends to do with her character in season five. Hill Harper's most recent interview kinda gave ominous vibes about that, even though he's assured it won't be his character that gets saddled with Lindsay. :lol: Unfortunately, even he doesn't know whether what he's said is confirmed or not, so who knows? [/quote] That's what I don't understand. Why does she have to be pinned to just one particular character. Why can't they spread her around? I think the biggest mistake they made with her is "saddling" Danny, and seemingly Danny alone, with her. It really hampered any kind of character development, limited acting skills aside. Then, the problem became that when the whole romance thing fell apart/became a farce, there wass noone left that she has/had a really strong bond with (except to act all ooc and not let her have consequences when she screws up). So, they're screwed, IMO. I say, reduce her role, let her do things with other characters equally, and don't pin her to Hawkes or Adam or even Mac. You notice that none of the other characters are solely pinned to one other person on the show. :guffaw::guffaw::guffaw::guffaw: I like that. It's so damn true. A lot of great and not so great tastes that don't taste great together. I think they DO need to restart from scratch, or just get a new recipe.
