Very interesting post, Diane R , and I agree 100%!!
I came to a similar conclusion today that the only reason reason the Moana montage was shown in attempt to retore her reputation was at the request of Travis. He obviously has figured out a way to stand up to Fleiss. Thank goodness someone finally has.
I'm still bitter about his portrayal of Ian, although his shining showing at the ATFR put an end to that. However, that same ATFR served up Meredith on a Texas-sized platter.
I also have no doubt that if Moana is not the final one she and her fans will handle it with class. Sure, she'll be terribly wronged and publically humiliated, since she obviously truly fell in love with Travis But she'll be over it by now and so should her fans. I'll just consider it as Travis' loss and move on.
