Re: Your Thoughts on the upcoming Danny/Lindsay development (SPOILERS! Everything expressed in the following post is my opinion - merely an opinion, not fact, and an opinion which I can only claim is my own. (Since we apparently have to say that everything we write on a message board is an opinion. ) Lindsay needs to be less me-me-me and whatnot, but the problem there is that I don't know that she was ever intended to come across as selfish as she has. Hopefully, we won't see more of the same while everybody around her pats her on the back for being a selfless mother-to-be. As for Danny - I agree that he needs to be less impulsive when it comes to the baby and having to think before he acts for the good of everyone involved. However, I'm not sure I agree that the 'tough kid needs to change his character' - Danny is Danny, and he should stay who he is at a fundamental level. Yes, he should try to slow down and focus rather than running headlong into things (as he sometimes does), but I don't want to see him completely altered. I'm still trying to figure out how they're going to have this storyline and not refer to Ruben in name - hopefully they'll make subtle references, as has been mentioned, but the idea that the storyline is 'over' is kind of mind boggling. It's like saying Lindsay's past is 'over' and will never be relevant again, or that the storyline with Louie is 'over' and Danny will never think about him again. (Granted, he hasn't seemed to beyond one kinda-reference in the episode with Coney Island, but you know what I mean.) People are the sum of their parts, and the sum total of their life experience. Things that happened less than a year ago should still matter when they are as life-altering as having a child die in your car, particularly when you are about to have a child of your own. Ignoring stuff like that just comes across as laziness to me. Don't include an intense emotional storyline if you don't plan to have the follow-through.
