Ugh, I know! Before I found out that the actors wanted to leave for other projects, I was sooo angry with the writers. I thought they were just being unnecessarily cruel, haha.

I try to tell myself that Matthew is entitled to make his own career decisions…but I’m pretty sure Broadway would have still been around if he’d stayed on the show for a few more years. Excuse me, gonna go back to my crying now…sniff

I actually got over Matthew. I mean, it was SO STRANGE to not see him in season 4, but I was okay.

Sybil? Oh hell no. I’m still mourning.

On the bright side, I can assure you that season 4 did not leave me weeping.

@bowsergirl:  Oh please do not give us any Season 4 spoilers. 🙂  I’ve resisted the temptation to search for any, other than the baby’s name and one thing that was being touted at the end of last season as a teaser for Season 4.

ETA:  I also am not over Sybil. I LOVED her character. And JBF is SO beautiful!!

@peachacid:  I know Julian wouldn’t have given us all of those wonderful love scenes between Matthew and Mary in Season 3 if he didn’t know he’d have to off him at the end of Season 3, so I’ve made peace with it.  We had the chance to see the happy couple happy in a number of scenes, so I do feel as if he fulfilled us in that regard. I’m really excited for Season 4!

@peachacid:  Still so mad about the actor who played Matthew leaving. I never want to see him in anything ever again. Yes, it’s childish, but I cant help it.

That being said, I cant wait for Season 4. But I do I have to say, I’ve been slightly disappointed with Seasons 2 and 3. But my overall love of the show keeps me going on.

@Brielle:  I just watched some behind the scenes footage from season 3 and Julian Fellows does say that he wanted to give Mary “a perfect love”, to show her it can be real and to also to show to the audience that Mary and Matthew were very happy together. 🙂

I was sooo sad about Sybil!! Same as everyone here, I’m still not over it! 🙁

@bowsergirl:  Season 4 was great!! Just watched the last episode last night – can’t wait for the Christmas special!
