I joined, but am in two minds about it for the reasons stated. If they can bring him back in a way that's meaningful (flashbacks, say), bring it on. But much as I love certain characters or actors, I'd rather they stayed dead in order to give the show back its anything-can-happen vibe. (Yes, even though I went nuts after Nathan got shot.) S1 had me on the edge of my seat wondering who would survive and who wouldn't, but that went away after S2. Deaths become so much cheaper when you have a feeling the character involved won't stay dead for long. Adam and Maury had excellent shock deaths; they shouldn't be cheapened with a comeback just because we love the actors.
