Raise your hand if...
« on: February 26, 2009, 12:29:16 PM »
You were expecting More from the character of Matthew Abbadon... I really hope that wasnt the last we see of him. Knowing this show, it wont be. Maybe its just me but i was expecting BIGger things from him... :-\

:: raises hand::

As you can see from the note in my signature block, I had some high hopes.

My hope: His charachter isn't really dead and he will play a more important role.
My suspicion: The writers didn't have the time or desire to finish developing his role so they changed it and killed him off.

* raising hand *

...but I'm still expecting more from him, LOL. Isn't the actor in another show right now? Maybe tptb only had him for a short period of time, and that's all they could do for now. I'm sure we'll see him again. He told Locke the first time around that he owed him one, and it doesn't seem like Locke paid that debt.

yeah, he's on FRINGE right now, but how do we know that Abbadon is dead?  From Ben?  HAH?

*me*

i figured they had to kill him due to his commitment to fringe, but i do wish they had expanded more on his role as the person who gets people where they need to be going especially if he had ties to Widmore. I love how Hurley freaked out when he saw him during Locke's visit. And I liked how he was talking to Locke about the inevitability of death pertaining to Richard's warning to Locke leaving the island. There was just so much potential with his character. Stupid Ben! Darn that Fringe!

James Bond: You expect me to talk?
Goldfinger: No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!

I have no reason to think this, but I think he's not dead. So he'll have to come back at some point.

Fringe is also a J.J. Abrams production.  Maybe JJ made the choice to keep Lance Reddick exclusively for Fringe.

I think he'll be coming back in another time.  He needs to talk about the miracle he told Locke about when he was encouraging Locke to go on a walkabout.

I don't think Ben was responsible:

You don't think Ben was responsible for killing Abbadon?  I don't get that.  It was part of the narrative.  What was missing?

A close-up of the shooter!

Why not just show the assassin in the distance?

But if they didn't show the assasin and Ben said he killed him, why isn't that enough?
