OK. Did they do anything to write the other twin out six months ago, or are they just going with "she's gone, maybe we'll mention why later if Ms. Armstrong wants to do a guest arc or definitively rules out ever coming on the show again"?
Yes. You know, over the summer, they filmed three episodes that they trash-canned; never aired, by one of the show runners of "Dexter". I'd be interested in seeing those on some DVD box set or released somewhere.. to see where this show could have went. But it was somewhat doomed. Four show runners in 2 years, 4 episodes filmed and then abandoned that wouldn't fit into continuity at all now; 1 from Season 1 and the first three episodes that were supposed to begin Season 2.
Well, ABC has absolutely killed this product. Yes, it's cancelled. So, in order to apparently hasten the demise, last night, episode 2x08 aired. Meanwhile, 2x07 never aired (and apparently will not). So, those who were looking to follow up on issues from the 6th episode of the season got thrown forward, and new plotlines that had no development to them at all magically appeared and old ones were gone. Please, rather then do this, just yank the show.
I couldn't figure out the last show, which I thought tied up nothing, except revealing Nick's dad was behind the whole thing and is still alive.. which seemed like a crazy soap opera cliff hanger to end on.
