And yet, that’ll be the reality facing ABC’s tawdrylicious soap when it returns for Season 3 next summer. Indeed, Milano — the biggest name among the show’s fierce four-woman ensemble — announced she’ll exit the show to avoid uprooting her family when production moves from Los Angeles to Vancouver in 2015.
Are we heartbroken? Of course — especially since the last time we saw her, Savi was about to stumble across her ex-husband and her little sister in a torrid, beachside embrace. (As Aaliyah once sang, “We need a resolution. We have so much confusion.“)
Nevertheless, a source confirms to TVLine that the role of Savi will not be recast — but that the show will introduce a new mistress to fill the void. And to that end, we’ve come up with a list of 21 actresses we think would be able to nail the show’s mix of sexy intrigue, witty zingers and “yes, more please!” fashion.
