alan's ponzi scheme almost worked...maybe it did, if the
show didnt hit the real life charlie sheen meltdown - but with
Sheen's off camera antics, they kinda "just did away w/ the story"...
-( i believe) or iF they DID go back to it, reeeely never developed it -
So, his heart attack scam was working again -
until Zoey finds him out w/ the Private eye...
Perhaps, they could have let this one go - as it was gaining ground,
and it could have created some (on screen) tension, and who knows maybe real life tension, (LOL)
for alan and zoey...
If it did last - maybe make walden "pick" between her,and her kid and alan - thru the natural course
of a 10th season to slowly fade out zoey.. to get to the show's premise: alan, (Homeowner,lol) and his kid..
