I don't see any reason why this thread should be deleted, aio86. As you say, that Edwards was leaving really has been common knowledge for some time now. And that Green was going to die has been all over the internet, too.
Thinking back to it, I really didn't like last night's episode very much at all. Too soulless, too heartless. The whole thing glossed over the fact that Green was literally going to die at the end of the episode. And why weren't we allowed to see more of the funeral? Do the writers think this is irrelevant to the viewers? Jeez, the series focuses on him for eight years, he dies, and all we get to see is a few tears? I really wish there was more of a focus on Green and Corday, and much less of a focus on Green and his daughter. The episode last night just made me despise her even more. Hopefully, she'll stay out of the plot from now on, but my better sense tells me that she'll be back to annoy Corday eventually.
