Anyone wonder what might happen if Dena were to return without TOmlin/Whitesell around? Do you think that Corday, who loved the woman so much apparently would fire the other two, rehire her and keep LB as co-hw with Dena?

I hope this means Corday will be able to bring in new headwriters. And if he does, I hope he keeps the scriptwriters.
I don't know how to feel about that. It seems like everytime we wish for new screenwriters, we end up regretting it one way or another. People hated JER and we got Hogan. People hated him and we got Dena (way worse). People hated her and we got MarDar (differently bad). People hated MarDar and we got TomSell (differently bad). I don't love TomSell by any means, but their brand of bad is far more tolerable to me than previous regimes.
If I had even a tiny bit of hope that we'd get somebody that was actually better, not just differently bad, I'd be all for it. But my bigger fear is that we'd get somebody who's particular brand of bad was even worse.
With legitimate change comes hope. TomSell wasn't a legitimate change, so there was no hope there. But someone actually different could at least make me hopeful again.
That's a fair point, I suppose. But, what constitutes legitimate change? Somebody truly new, or just another recycled failure? That's my fear. I guess, at this point anyway, I'm in the devil you know category. A month from now, I might not feel the same way.
