    • Aye. If anything what little we do know has me inclined to side with him.

  • Glad George is back and hope they resolved everything in a positive manner on the CSI set. And, no, killing Nick would not be a good thing for the show.

  • I was going to comment on Bravo moving into scripted programming, but I caught myself realizing every show currently on Bravo is scripted.

    • Linda Edelstein should be on an ensemble show again.

      I just can’t see Noxious writing a strong female character.

      Especially not one in their 40′s.

  • That was really confusing. I thought you were talking about Abby from Scandal, not the new show.

  • i’m glad to see that nick stokes IS returning….he’s been with the show from day 1….and SHOULD have some say, over his character after all these years… get some “new writer” come in , who doesn’t know the character…..if i was the actor, i’d say something too…..if they get picked up for another season, i have a feeling….nick WON’T be back….sad….because he’s my favorite.
