Quote shiesty86: Did it ever occur to y'all that maybe the writers didn't want Sophie to have to "play dead." That would require to be still with individual performances. Yes I know she did this with her leukemia s/l but having her lay there with the pale makeup could be too traumatic.
I completely agree, the beautiful little girl who plays the character Delia would have been traumatized having to "play dead." This was truly shocking, and a disappointing story line (along the line of killing off Colleen---writers, think FUTURE story lines here!!) I, for one, am glad that I was spared (as well as the adorable actress) from having to see a little one passed away---it was about the only good thing these writers did with this story.
