Freefall (#10.8)
16 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

No, no, no!!! Not Romano, how could they do it to me!!!! I have a feeling the show will go down even faster now, all the characters I like are being killed off and the ones that appear are not as great. I wish it was Abby who was under that helicopter...She is a constantly bitter witch. Romano was a huge douchebag but extremely entertaining, the show will sure miss Romano moments. I guess Paul McCrane wanted to be written off, otherwise I see no reason. He will sure be missed by me, great acting!.

Well, my rating has nothing to do with how happy I am now, it just about how it was done. The whole helicopter thing was pretty unpredictable and kind of had a feeling of fate in it considering his accident in the previous season.

The story of Chuck is also pretty great. When the helicopter crashed I already forgot if he was on it as I was so upset about Romano. So it was surprise for me as well when Susan got to see him all alive.
