Regarding the non-storyline spoiler:Click to see Spoiler:neither one of the new actors are aged from the outgoing actors... so I can only guess that they wanted to replace the current Michael because of acting (get someone in there that can handle the meatier stuff.) The new Morgan casting appears to solely be due to a scheduling conflict. I agree that it's a bummer... I do like the current Morgan and think he and Dante together are wonderful and they do have a big resemblance.
Love the foreshadowing in the Dante/Kristina conversation yesterday when Dante told her that in his experience abusers WILL attack again. And then Kiefer shows up at the table. From the look on Dante's face watching Kristina... I think he just might have put 2 and 2 together at that moment.
Silly me... even having read the spoiler from upthread, I still wondered who had called Luke on the phone. When Skye walked in I still managed to be surprised and very happy. I guess it helps having the short-term memory of an increasingly old(er) person.
