I get the humor, and the point is well taken (at least by me). But I do wonder...
Here's the thing. I believe that Tomlin was going to kill off Jack and have Nicole lose her baby regardless. These were MarDar creations/decisions that he came in wanting to undo. He also came in bent on putting Dannifer back together... regardless. But if MarDar had not ended the Jack/Jennifer/Daniel triangle so abruptly and then moved Daniel sort of randomly and suddenly into Nicole's orbit... then putting Dannifer back together would have taken a different route. Up to that point, Nicole had been having scenes with Rafe. Daniel's insertion into the story just came out of nowhere.
Anyway, my point is that Tomlin would have had to work a little harder to come up with some Dannifer angst that would put them back together if MarDar hadn't handed them the setup of Daniel and Nicole. Nicole started out as merely using Daniel -- sleeping with him to keep him wrapped around her finger. Tomlin flipped it, turned her into a pathetic loser who was obsessed with the perfect doctor. And he made Jennifer similarly obsessed with said doctor.
So, in sum, I blame Tomlin/TomSell for the deaths of Jack and Nicole's baby -- and the continued destruction of two strong female characters. But I think I have to blame MarDar for setting up the circumstances that led to Jennifer and Nicole's confrontation on the bridge.
