I was just wondering what everyone's thoughts and opinions were on the Lynette and Tom separation.
I've been a huge fan of Lynette and Tom since the very beginning of the show. I was so disappointed when the writers decided to break them apart. One thing that has annoyed me is how "easily" they gave up given everything they've been put through before, it's like the writers havecompletelyforgotten about what they've had to deal with before.
I find itunbelievable how quickly Tom got a girlfriend, the writers really annoyed me there and I really think it's unrealistic, he and Lynette were together for 20+ years and all of a sudden he got a serious girlfriend.
I would have much rather the writers split up Susan or Mike, or even Gaby or Carlos. It's a shame that they've now made all the couples split, Lynette and Tom's stable relationship was refreshing amongst all thedivorcesand affairs etc.
I honestly haven't been able to enjoy this season as much as I would have liked too because of the separation, it's really ruined the final season for me. I know quite a few fans who have stopped watching all together because of this storyline.
I also really miss seeing Felicity and Doug on screen together frequently, their chemistry is amazing and I really miss it. They've said so many times before that they want Lynette and Tom back together and they hate the storyline. I read that Marc Cherry said how "accepting" the fans were of this storyline. What fans has he been talking to? Probably 90% of the people I've spoken to hate this storyline and I've read a lot of people's opinions on it online and they think the same.
What are your views on it?
