Ok so now e have Mark Harding - who is great - don't get me wrong - but what happened to Chavez? Did his contract run out, too? Would like to see Courtney get involved with Harding - why not they are both cops - Noah - this scene doesn't fit you anymore. You and Courtney the student - that was okay because of your boyish looks but you and a rough, tough cop - maybe not so much!
I would have left town if I had the boring s/l they gave to this character. Chavez has no s/l., but they keep Noah and Courtney on and Noah is as boring as cardboard. Get rid of him. Chavez could have been a front runner with an exciting partner but NO, they gave it to another Newman.
