Michelle Borth is not replacing one of the Core-4. There is no way that this is going to happen unless the Producers and CBS want a revolt. She is not going to be part of the team. She is going to continue to play Lt. Catherine Rollins. She will help the team and Steve with Intel and technology as in the past. She will have personal moments with Steve. She may interact with the other team members when they are relaxing. CBS shows have levels of regulars. Some regulars are like the Core-4 regulars and some are like Max. I think Michelle was made a regular so she would be more available to the show...if she didn't have a contract she would likely have ended up on another show as a regular. She is a really good actress...beautiful and smart. I love her and Steve together. They have an adult relationship. They aren't playing that stupid will they or won't they get together game. They get together and enjoy each other...who wouldn't. I like the idea that Catherine has a career...she went to the Naval Academy and has a significant job in Intel.
I wish that they had come up with something more creative than another death watch finale...in particular I don't want to see another woman die a violent death on this show. I hope that they do not re-open the Lori character "can of worms" for the finale. I don't see how it can be any of the Core-4 unless they seriously want people to stop watching.
H5O did the same thing at the end of last season...I wish they had come up with something more creative than another death, particularly if another woman dies a violent death. Last year it was a "major character" and it was the Governor. This year it is "one of their own". It won't be one of the CORE-4 or Max. I think it will be Joe or Fryer.
