I think Drew has a big mouth. Zeke told him he wanted the trip to be a surprise...but, did they do that so that Zeke is able to see her reaction to it before he dies? I surely hope that he lives again, because killing him off in the final season seems like a FU to the fans. Of course we want a happy ending to a show that we have loved for six seasons...and I hope that they are not going to follow GoT and kill off characters we love for shock value. This isn't a political show, it is just an enjoyable show about ups and downs in life. Please don't leave us feeling too down, it would be a terrible end to a very good show.

The fact of the matter is some people die suddenly in real life, whether it is from a disease or other causes. They wouldn't kill him off for the shock value, they would kill him off because that is what happens in life.

Of course they do, I am a widow, and an orphan, I have certainly had my share. Also enough to know that life goes on. I just think that in a show like this, where trouble comes but the family gets through it, should not end on such a note. It is too late now to see them rebound, and the new baby will certainly not be enough to warrant Zeke's death. Not when we cannot see the family recover, and no one recovers that quickly. It would almost be a punishment to the audience that has stuck by them for so long.
