Halís Officially Gone
Week of October 23 to 27
by Sonia

            I think we all knew the day would come when the character of Hal would be put to rest, it just seems like it was a little too soon. Now that the show has retired his character (which I for one am glad because I could never see anyone play him but Benjamin) itís time for all of us to truly move on. I think the show did it in the best way possible, Hal was trying to protect a young boy when he was killed in the line of duty, and when the news spread in Oakdale everyone took the news hard. Margo could barely get the words out when she had to tell Jack, the tears were coming down her face. Jack didnít cry but you could just tell the news was heartbreaking for him, Hal was Jackís role model, Hal made Jack the cop he is today. The thing that I thought was really sweet was when every character heard the news they showed a flashback of Hal (and Benjamin) It was nice to see Hal again, and I absolutely loved seeing the older clips of him, man was he young when he first started. The minute Carly heard the news she ran over to the police station right away to be by Jackís side. It was the cutest thing, Carly knew that Jack would be hurting and she wanted to be with himÖI LOVE IT!!!! Since Simon has been on the show I havenít really wanted a carjack reunion, but now Iím starting to rethink things. I love the chemistry that Jack/Carly have, itís something that can never be broken. Later on everyone decided to go to YOís to celebrate Halís life, it was so cute, and touching at the same time. When Jack went to speak about how much he loved Hal, Carly grabbed his hand to show him some support. There again I saw the sparks flying, like magic!!! I just hope that this loss will bring them together, theyíll realize how much they mean to each other. I loved seeing all of the clips with Hal, I just thought that there should have been way more, come on the man was on the show for two decades( I think) he deserves an entire show just for him. Then it happen, and believe me I was wondering how I would react to the New Adam, because I havenít liked the last three people to join the show. I love Matthew Morrison (Adam) heís totally amazing, besides being totally gorgeous, heís a great actorÖIím so in Love!!!! I actually like the Adam/Jade pairing itís cute, they looked good together. So Iím sitting here watching the show, just being happy with him, and I realized that I donít think of him as the New AdamÖ. I just think of him as being Adam, which is great. Then at the end of the week I heard the saddest news, Matthew Morrison is leaving the show due to a conflict, and someone else is going to be taking over the roleÖ..THIS SUCKS BIG TIME!!!!!! I canít believe it, maybe I shouldnít have let myself like him as Adam, but I couldnít help itÖ.I hope something changes so he can stay.

Well this is all just my opinion
