    Does anyone know why Chris Lassing, Lilly's partner in episodes 1, 2 and 4, dissappeared? I was watching the first few episodes today, and I was like "waait, who the hell is that?" I actually prefer him to Scotty....

    But, yeah, was there any reason for his character's leave? I would've liked to see more character development for him, and I enjoyed his and Lilly's chemistry (for the two minutes he was on the show xD).

    I was wondering that too. I don't know if they explained it in the episode when we first meet Scotty, because I never saw that episode. But the best I can figure is that the producers probably decided there wasn't the right kind of chemistry between Lilly and Chris, so they brought in someone else. Also, in the very first episode, it is established that Chris has a wife, and maybe the producers later decided they wanted Lilly to have a single partner as a potential love interest. Although keeping the married partner could have provided some interesting love interest storylines as well...

    But I'm not disappointed that they replaced Chris with Scotty. Chris was okay in his own right, but Scotty...(sighs) wow. How can Chris - how can anyone - bring to the show what Danny Pino does? He's almost as irreplaceable as Kathryn Morris herself.

    they said he moved days on count of his diabetes(sp?). It's revealed on Scotty's first episode.

    No she didn't slap him but I do remember her defending Chris's leaving.

    Does it matter? Scotty is way prettier. He tends to be a bit of a jerk on the show, and hated his performance on CSI, but still, prettier than Chris,

    Well, I think Justin Chambers is gorgeous. Danny is good looking too, I guess.

    Anyway, I don't really care what show Justin's on as long as I get to see him on my tv screen!
