So, I get on this spot and I'm reading all this 'I'm starting to hate Laurel' crap. You guys say you understand that she misses Tommy. Well, then show a little understanding. It's not like he's away on a vacation. He's dead and she feels that it's her fault and she will have to live with that.

I do not approve of how Laurel blamed the hood, but I do understand. People say and do messed up things when they're grieving. Seriously, it's only been three episodes and you're already complaining....
I thought I would be angrier when I wrote this. I’ve made no secret of how much I love Tommy throughout the season, so I thought when he died at the end of the season finale, I would be overcome with rage and grief, that this review would be peppered with obscenities and rambling diatribes on the new level of suck this show has discovered. Instead, all I could think to write is this:
