    She added nothing to the show.

    1. Linda says:

      Sorry to agree she added nothing to the show. I am speaking of the character only not the actress. It would have been a great storyline if they had done it right and showed it.

  4. Mary Alicea says:

    I thought I missed her death and kept going back to my DVR recordings and watching them from season 7 to 12 over and over. I watched it all day and night on Wednesday. My favorite show even though they should have let the people who’s been watching it for years. They let everyone see her get shot and almost died. They should have shown the helicopter accident. I’m still loving the show though
