WAAAAAAAAAAAHHH WHY DID THEY KILL OFF WASH HE WAS MY FAAAAAVORITE
especially when he cursed in Chinese. He was the best at that, I think.
I so didn't see that coming, either. I mean, they killed off Shepherd, fine, okay, he's a minor character (although I really liked him, too), so as soon as that happened I was like, "Hoo, okay, they're done killing off characters now, we can relax." But no. A day later, I'm still sad about him. Yes, me = dork.
(Killing him off did seem like sort of a copout solution to the Wash-and-Zoe's-troubled-marriage subplot--I was looking forward to seeing how they resolved that, if they did.)
Also, I liked Joss's Helpful Scenes--the "no, you're not getting Shepherd's backstory, even though we alluded to it for 14 episodes" conversation, and the "here's who died" wrapup at the end. Thanks, Joss!
