Writer's Block: They had it coming

If you could drop a character from your favorite TV show, who would you off and how would it happen?


I have a couple of favorites...but I'm gonna go with CSI NY.

Don't get me wrong, I love the entire cast. I think they are all amazing. I just really dislike the fact that they brought Lindsey in as such a strong female and immediately turned her into Danny's love interest before really expanding on her character. She had a lot of potential to be amazing. She had the one storyline in season 3 about her testifying on that case from her past, but even then it was just another stepping stone into Danny's heart. But every other time she had a storyline, it was directly related to Danny. Can't she just be her own character for once? So if I had to off anyone, it would be Danny (I love him, and I know people are going to freak out, and I am 99.9% sure that CBS would never be THAT stupid) purely to give Lindsey some room for growth. I just think it would be interesting to see how Lindsey would handle being a single mother and how the team would come to her aid. Or since they already fucked up her character anyway, maybe kill off Lindsey and let Danny have all that fun emotional turmoil. Though, I hate how the show has become Danny-centric in some ways. They have other characters that I would love to see have bigger parts. *coughadamcoughsid*

I actually was hoping they would have kept Danny in his wheelchair for WAY longer than they had him in it this season. It would have had more impact than just the couple of episodes and then BOOM he's back.

So, for the second part of the question: how?

Danny: I want to see something that we wouldn't expect from him...I don't want to see him going down fighting, I want to see him dieing because of something he can't control like a complication with his back or something. A blood clot. Something that he wouldn't have been able to see coming. I don't know why, I just think it would be strangely poetic. He's always been the one to step up and fight against things and the one thing he can't fight against takes him out.

Lindsey: Is opposite of Danny, I'd like to see her downed in a firefight. Again, I want to see her strong Montana-ness come back. Season 2 Lindsey was amazing and I miss her.

Well. Yes. I have no problem with it. On one hand, we get Danny being awesome. On the other hand we have Lindsey being awesome. It would be good for either one, character-wise.

Incredibly sad, but good.
