They did go a little overboard, but the writers have had trouble writing Tony ever since DPB was ousted.
I'm glad that the writers seem to finally be letting Tony move on. Let's face it - the same people who have been whining, moaning, swearing that they'll never watch again, claiming that the ratings are tanking, and that Weatherly simply can't "act" without de Pablo, will hate absolutely anyone who comes into Tony's life. They hated Bishop before she was on the show. They'll hate Keats or anyone else that the writers dare to allow Tony to have a relationship with. Apparently, in their way of thinking, Weatherly was supposed to immediately quit the show the moment he learned de Pablo did, or, if he was so selfish as to stay, Tony is supposed to walk around in sackcloth and ashes, flailing himself, morbidly depressed until his one twoo wuv and tragic wonder princess returns.

I'm guessing that Zoe will just disappear without any explanation. The writers rarely follow up on any of the little situations that they start for Tony. Gibbs and McGee seem to be the characters that have follow up these days. The only Tony theme that they seem to keep going is the yearly Senior episode which is always comic one and done.
