    Im saddened by the decision to break up Lucas and Elizabeth. It feels extremely disjointed and disconnected from where the show was, and the type of woman Elizabeth had shown herself to be over the last 10 seasons. Her behavior is not that of an early 20th century pioneer school teacher! Frankly, Im so disappointed in the new showrunnner. My husband says “this decision has made it no different than any other program in Hollywood”, he will no longer watch the show. Im very sorry for Lucas, and for Chris. Though, I know hes an actor who will be excited for interesting stories coming up. Im yet to decide if I’ll watch the premiere. I did not watch the season 10 finale….the very first Sunday Ive missed since Season 1 episode 1.
