Our Question for the Writers of V (feat. Spoilers!)

Congratulations to the the cast and creative team of V. As advertised, last night’s second season ender was a rip-roaring roller-coaster of a finale that β€” unlike 97.4% of the episodes that preceded it β€” actually managed to keep us on the edge of our seat courtesy of multiple character deaths, copious amounts of blood and a genuine bona fide game-changer of an ending that was thisclose to ensuring our support for a third season of the show.

We say “thisclose” because if we’re being honest here, our interest in championing a third season of V truly lies in showrunner Scott Rosenbaum’s ability to answer one very simple question: Is what is far and away television’s most annoying character really dead?


Suffice to say, we’ve watched more than enough science fiction (or primetime sudsers for that matter) to know that just because we saw Tyler fall victim to Anna and Bizarro-Lisa’s bloody fantastic post-coitus plan does in no way guarantee that there isn’t some sort of advanced alien technology quietly waiting in the wings to keep him alive.

Which is why, we here at theTVaddict.com have taken the liberty of hastily throwing together crafting some not-so-legal mumbo-jumbo to ensure that we’ve seen the last of the aforementioned annoyance. Rest assured, a simple “I agree” in the comments below from showrunner Scott Rosenbaum will suffice!

Dear V Fans,
I, V Showrunner Scott Rosenbaum solemnly swear that should V be lucky enough to be awarded a third season by ABC we have seen the last of Tyler Evans. Rest assured, (1) Last night’s episode was not a dream. (2) His body will not be cryogenically frozen until a cure for a fatal alien bite to the neck is found. (3) He does not have a long lost twin brother. (4) There are no such things as ghosts. (5) This isn’t LOST. (6) Or FRINGE, no alternate universes here. (7) His DNA will not be used to create an lizard clone. (8) His face will not be transplanted onto another character ala Dr. Drake Ramoray from FRIENDS.

Sincerely,
Scott Rosenbaum

    i’ve never been so happy to see a character die in my life. especially after his mom tells him everything, and he still has to ask the V’s if it’s true. WTF? he’s been deserving this since day 1.

  • It was a brain transplant, not a face transplant. Just making sure your document would hold up in a court of law πŸ˜›

  • Agreed, worst character ever!

  • Much appreciated!

  • One word: Yay.

  • Nick

    Come on, dude, we need Tyler for comic relief. The black guy who “wouldn’t leave without my baby…my BAY-BEEE” was far more annoying than Tyler. Both deaths were very entertaining and unexpected, though.

    The killing that really ticks me off is Anna’s mother! That old lady brought some old-school credibility to the show, and killing her off wastes a huge iconic presence. If V returns, let’s get some of that insta-heal serum and fix her back up. But man, that Anna chick is one bad mama-jamma. Her line to Lisa (“Now that’s how you kill your mother”) is instant Quote of the Week material.

    If renewed…you know damn well he will be back…no matter how much we don’t want it to happen. TV 101….dead never means gone forever! πŸ™

    Tyler was no Shawn.. if anything we felt bad for the doof, I mean who is not gonna fall in love with Lisa??!! Dianna being dead somehow feels like ok well I didnt trust her anyway… And seeing Donavan Opps I mean Larrs?? Just made the entire series for me… Welcome to the Resistance. ABOUT TIME! I am curious as to why the short seasons. I think this would be worlds better as the Original was if it were mini series style, and not this broken 6 eph here another 6, then 10, then who knows? I mean its good, but bouncing it around is the bad choices of networks these days. lack of any commitment from them to invest our entertainment into. I mean how many times in the past years have we all said, HEY!!! I was watching that!!! only to see it vanish from the airwaves just as it was getting good. The HITS, Are things they gave a chance to survive… I mean even NCIS and CSI and other such programs that had long runs had to start someplace and gain a fan base before they were good. V is a fantastic series and relaunch of the franchise. Just enough of a hint of things from the original that make the old fans go Oh yea, Oh yea, Alright now we are talking… But it keeps it new with the move away from teh less common Nazi aspect of the original and more the Terrorist conscience of today’s threat. Keeps it current. Keeps it interesting… But I ask you , when is the leader and Elisabeth going to arrive in the shuttle? lol

  • Chris

    Well I think what we saw last night was a reboot of sorts..
    War of the Worlds the tv shoe
    Seaquest
    Wonder Woman
    And even the 1st V tv series did a mass baggage dropping and continued own to 1 or more seasons with rebooted cast
    Sliders too but that was absolutely horrible

    They left the core and added room for new players pushed the bad baggage out. I think if we get a 3rd season the writers get what we want…

  • Kelly

    As annoying as Tyler was, there is no way his character is gone for good…talk about pushing Erica right off the deep end, kill Joe and then Tyler…oh, and Hobbs is what? Gone? Who knows…so, while all the characters are annoying at times, destroying the main character that way, all in one season, does not seem like a good TV plan. I’m much less attached to Ryan, and incredibly happy that Joshua is back. I however, thought it would be much better if they switched Faux-Lisa for real Lisa somehow…that might have been fun. I don’t know…

    Tyler’s death Tuesday night was by far the BEST moment of the entire episode. My boyfriend and I were waiting for it the entire seasons, and it’s even better than the fake-out dream sequence in the premiere episode.

  • Sanen85

    I tthink throughout my longstanding TV addiction, I’ve only ever been this happy about a character’s death twice before (and I watch 3 soap operas faithfully, ok 2 faithfully and 1 sporadically now). I agree that Tyler’s death being permanent would basically break the main character, but it’s pretty much worth it in this case, should the show return.

    As for face transplants, it’s definitely been done on the soaps but usually to get a recast in. Hey, maybe they can recast and write Tyler like a normal f*ckin person who is less annoying and stupid.
