I agree with Cards...besides then they would have to find another person to hook Michael up with and there isn't anybody if you look at the scenerios. He's been with Phyllis, won't go there again, Avery and Nick are hooking up, Sharon is suppose to be paired with Dylan eventually, Abby is to young, the rest to old, except Leslie but I think they are going for the diversified look under JFP.
Tha same thought crossed my mind that did the time Carmine sent a bottle of champagne to their table for their anniversary. Maybe he is trying to get in good with the DA because of Alex coming to town and his saying he knows him. After all Carmine's family is the NY mob.
