been thinking about it for awhile. Why really kill off hector?
Unless he had an engagement to go do another job, another show, movie, etc., I do not see a valid, rational reasoning for taking him out of the show.
He had to leave the show for his personal reasons? do another movie/show? That fine, but why not give him more respect and a better way of leaving the show?
Play out the relationship with the girl, get married, and decide that the Unit is no longer what he wants, and leaves the show.
Make him die in a better manner even? Sacrifices himself for another team member, dies saving lives of many others.
it just seems like a cop-out and a poor attempt to generate more ratings to the show. at the very end, a sniper gets him, and thats the end of that? come on.
i really think its a poor way of executing the script for whatever reason they may have. I can maybe understand they need to spice it up and that he be the easy target to "die" to generate ratings, or whatever they wanted. So many characters and trying to give all the characters more depth with more stories into all their lives. Just with the recent episodes and putting his life in the spotlight was starting to make the show better, to know the other characters. and then this happens before you even get that chance.
if they bring in another character, i feel bad for him. because i will always feel that hector should be in the show, and i will, in the back of my mind, not like the new guy.
i just really feel it was a bad direction they took the show.
