According to a story on AICN's Coax News, Ed could be gone. I will be severely bummed if this happens. NBC gave it no time to find a bigger audience on Friday nights. Three episodes, especially with the war and NCAA playoffs going on, is not nearly enough time to establish and build a good base. *sigh* At least, from what I have been reading, there will be some kind of closure on one of the big storylines: One of the producers has been quoted that the season finale will please long-time fans of the show. I am guessing that Carol and Ed finally take the plunge and decide to become a romantic couple.
