I couldn’t find a representative post, except for this:
Also, not that you asked, but season seven is about 854,000 times better than season six and a not-insignificant part of that IMO is the lifted weight from the writers’ shoulders of not having to write for a character they really didn’t know how to write or give a shit about. But different strokes and all that jazz.
At a certain point, both Quinn and Brody became a hindrance to the writers writing good television. After they were killed the show was just better. I know that stings for some people but it’s the truth.
