Question: Your last column and some remarks by Melinda Clarke (Julie) got me wondering: Are we going to see flashbacks of people's reactions to Marissa's death? I think that the audience really will feel shortchanged if we don't get to see that. I have no problem with the show picking up six months after, but I think that the audience is going to expect to see flashbacks or reactions, and maybe even the funeral.

Answer: Sorry, but the first script doesn't contain any of those things you just mentioned.
