Big difference in my mind is that Sara Evans left fairly early in the season, knowing how much time she was going to have to put in for quite a few weeks, when she was dealing with a divorce and being there for her children in that tough time - which was, I think, the real reason.Originally Posted by Tilden;4108663;
In comparison - next week is the last show. I don't really see any fans believing that she just couldn't handle the last week of the season after she has just endured the last 8 (or however many it is) because NOW she misses her son. Nope, more likely that people would flip if she dropped out at the end. And, considering the statements I have seen on boards already about her mother not being able to finish anything she starts - I REALLY don't see that happening with Bristol this close to the end.
