JM: But they do. I mean, I had an example of it this year that was very conflicting for all of us because all the fans would write in because they loved Kalinda [played by Archie Panjabi] and Alicia [in scenes] together. But Alicia found out after two years of her being my only friend that she had slept with my husband. And so, I spent the season bearing it and grinning but not being her friend anymore. But the comments back, as I'd read scripts [and would see] that we were, you know, at a bar together, the comments back were, "The fans want you back together. You guys were the relationship on the show," and I said, "But you wrote a very different scenario, and I have to be truthful to that." You find me one woman, forget America, but in the world who would then be a friend again and go out drinking with the woman who'd slept with her husband. I don't know that person.
And that came from a huge group of people complaining because they loved our characters together. And I think that's tricky because they wrote something very purely and then realized maybe we did make a mistake. So then does that not exist, what we just played for a year? And I think it's a slippery slope. You have to be careful, you know, that's all.
