Quote beautyseat: Wonder how they'll explain where Villy has been for the last 2 weeks? Still cuddling on the couch, as last we saw them? Probably not. When will this drought end?
Over the last 2 weeks, we've seen just about everyone in the cast, except for maybe Carmine, Esther, and Murphy. OK, throw in Bonnie and Mrs. Martinez. No offense, but they're hardly as integral to the s/l's as Villy.
Gotta say, I, for one, am getting pretty tired of all of these Villy gaps. As soon as we get over one, there's another. And this time we weren't even warned that they would disappear.
Starting in the summer of 2011, BM has (seemingly) been gone as much as he's been on the canvas. First it was BM's contract dispute in June, then his month off in July, then time off to do Ringer in the fall , then Feb pilot auditions, then the movie in Australia. The new PTB have hardly been forthcoming about new s/l's for Villy, except to say that Billy and Jack would be at odds. If BM leaves, will we still have Villy? Hope so.
Will Villy eventually amount to nothing more than props for Jack and Victor? That would be such a waste. Maybe the new writers will understand that they dip their fingers into gold every time they write the names Billy and Victoria.
The new writers would be crazy not to see just how much story they can get from Billy & Victoria's relationship and with them as individuals as well. I really think though that base on a tweet that I read on twitter from a Villy fan to one of the writers on the show, about them wanting a Newman vs Abbott business story line for Villy and the person responded by saying "how are you all able to find out about stuff like that" and then they ended by saying that "it is a very good story enjoy.
So I really don't think that it will only be about just Jack & Victor and Villy propping them. Then again really the new writers would be insane not to take advantage of what they can out of Villy from a story like this. U know Beautyseat I have really missed your humor, so I am glad to see u posting as much again. Your joke about Bonnie & Mrs. Martinez and all who haven't been shown in a while was really funny LOL.
Rafe hasn't been shown in quite sometime either and I hate that cause they seem to forget that he is one of Billy's closest friends and not just a guy who Billy knows as a lawyer. Ahh what am I saying they won't even acknowledge that Jack has a older son name Keemo, hopefully the new writers will remember to mention his name once in a while unlike MAB did. You know u brought up the word "integral" and I remember how JG said that they let Abby go cause he doesn't think that she is "integral", never mind the fact that she is both an Abbott & a Newman. Oh well.
