Killing Off Characters

Jack says, “Don’t get attached. If you do, don’t tell anyone. If a show’s set in a hospital and the character in question doesn’t work there, consider him dead already. The writers will kill him off, but not until you care if he dies. That’s what interests them.” The writers of medical dramas are akin to horror movie writers – like Final Destination, they’re cooking up exciting ways for people to die.

And if he doesn’t die, get suspicious. Especially if you’ve accidentally read on Google he does. Savour episodes, don’t skip through like they’re magazines which come out weekly. These are the moments you have him, you basically married him when she did. You never thought it was a sham so you deserve more than snippets, scenes in-between leads. More than five episodes this season. Relationships last longer than that.
