Severus Snape Week - day 6 : most heartbreaking moment

Been working my way through The Walking Dead TV series (up to beginning of S4) and now I might want to read the graphic novels. This is coming from someone who doesn’t really like gory horror or zombies. Yeah.
If A&E had planned on killing Neal before S3 started, then why the hell did they show Philora rescuing him in the S2 finale?
Especially because of the way that contracts work, making him a regular and then killing him halfway through made no sense. MRJ got paid as if he was in every single episode. He would have to maintain availability to appear in each and every episode. Like, he couldn’t take a job that came up that might conflict with him showing up in any of the episodes after he was killed for that season without getting a release from the contract. There was no reason on either side for them to sign him to the full season unless they were planning on using him. OUAT wasted tend of thousands of dollars on his salary to pay him in episodes he wasn’t in, and MRJ had to stop looking for work during the time until the contract was up.
Best explanation I have EVER seen as to why the ‘planned from the beginning’ mantra is flat out BULLSHIT.
Is the planned from the beginning thing for CS coming from the interview where the writers says Hook was always supposed to fall in love with Emma? I never took that to mean that CS was certain from the beginning. I took it to mean that there was to be some sort of love triangle between them. So yeah, it isn’t the same as saying CS was always the plan, IMO. Especially, since it takes two to tango. Emma was always saying how she loved Neal or they would keep bringing up her feelings for Neal.
Agreed on the MRJ contract thing. It seems like they changed direction and removed an obstacle. Unfortunately, they removed a character that I think was very important, and as a result have gutted the show and are filling it with something that I’m having a hard time with. It all doesn’t feel natural to me. It feels like network interference. I get that a lot of people love it, but for me we’re getting an overabundance of a character for no real reason except that he’s marketable and popular. I don’t see a lot of substance there. Yeah, other people do, that’s fine, but it just always has me scratching my head. I wish I wasn’t, believe me. I wish I liked it, because I used to love almost everything about the show, even if it wasn’t perfect. This just crossed some sort of line, and I’m pretty bummed about it. Still hoping for better in S4.
