I will start by saying I agree with you. But, I don't think MF would ever go for it. And to be honest, I am starting to think the viewing public, regardless of what they say, wouldn't either. Let's look at some facts:Originally Posted by MayJ;3628326;
1. The ending of Jason's season, when all the stuff about the big scandal leaked out, was the biggest ratings grabber the franchise has had in years.
2. At the beginning of every season, this season included, I can't believe how many comments get posted about how boring the season is. It is only once the drama kicks into high gear that people start getting invested and comment and watch.
So, much as people say they just want to see a love story, I unfortunately do not think that is true for many. I think what they mostly hate is that they feel like they are being duped. Sort of like they like the drama and action, but want to know that it is real drama and action, not fabricated. I think a plain, old, boring love story would be a ratings bomb. That is JMO, based on what I have seen people post over the seasons.
