Lucy is outta here... (THIS THREAD CONTAINS SPOILERS) : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread

Hi all,

I just saw a news bit on a local NBC station here in Houston that Lucy's character will be leaving the show sooner than expected. Basically, they said that the writers were going to incorporate her leaving by the end of this season and that the plot will be "electric"! I don't know what that means exactly but has anyone else heard this? Wow, Lucy did not stick around for long, wonder what this is all about.

Yeah, I heard yesterday that Kellie is leaving because she 'doesn't like the way her character is going'. I woonder if she is going to be 'Debbed' (my new word), leave after killing or almost killing a patient, and return in 5 years?

Well, Lucy has improved a bit this season, but I still think the character is monumentally irritating and seems to be pretty useless in the scheme of things -- even the last few episodes where she dealt with Valerie, the heart transplant patient, were lukewarm at best. They should either make her a strong, competent doctor or do away with her character. Can't say I'll be sorry to see her go.

Shes supposed to play a med student not a strong, competent doctor at this point. I don't get the irritation thing at all. I enjoy her more than anyone else on the show and will not watch when she is gone.

You're not serious!?!?!?!?!?! I can't believe that they'd kill her off! I doubt it, but, hey, anything could happen!

They are killing her off. In the 2/10 episode.

After they kill Lucy they will have a "Who killed Lucy" thing like they did with J.R. Then they will all go over to South Fork and have a big party. It seems like the writing is headed that way. Maybe Doug will kill her!

I will really miss Lucy on the show - she is a great character and had the writers had any bal... ops sorry...sence, they would have continued to explore her relationship with Carter in whatever way it developed, instead this season they barely have had a scene together, which is a pity because there was good chemistry between them.
