Quote JRTA: I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I disagree. There is still alot of story to be told with this character. What I think we need at this point is a break. When MS leaves, let Phyllis go to live with Daniel.
The paternity test can be resolved, but not the fallout. Phyllis relationships at an impasse. Everyone has become distant/detached from her... Jack, Nick, Avery, Summer. So she goes off to see Daniel and Lucy and re-evaluate her life.
In three months or so, she comes back, new actress and a new outlook. We can still have the snarky, sharp Phyllis that makes the character interesting. But the stuff that brought the character down is gone. Aka, the Phyllis pre-Nick.
I agree with MS. There is no story for her character anymore. MS and PB are very talented actors, they deserve better than the tripe that is being written for them. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see PB leave as well.
