Okay, it has been confirmed. Tea is going to die. My heart is broken and I am also furious. Tea is one of my all time favorite characters not only on this show, but in all of daytime. I am tired of investing in characters and then the writers decide to kill them off. I could think of a dozen characters on this show that could have died. Instead, they do this to me. Yes, I said to me because this is not what I wanted. I was one of the many people who jumped for joy when Florencia returned. What good did it do to bring her back if they were just going to kill her off within 2 years. I wanted Tea to live happily (or unhappily) ever after with Todd and Dani. Instead, I am going to get a Todd and Blair redux, which is not what I wanted and I am sure I am not in the minority on this one. So unless, OLTL is really planning on bringing it with some pretty compelling and explosive storytelling, after my beloved Tea dies, I may just not watch anymore. My not tuning in will not lower ratings, but I don't have to be jerked around by TPTB. I have stated in some other posts that I really am not getting what I want out of soaps anymore anyway. I am sick of the way shows are being written today anyway. The writers just do what they want and their bosses let them get away with it. It is so screwed up.
So goodbye, Tea. You will undoubtedly be missed by not only Todd and Dani, but me too. And good luck in your future endeavors, Florencia. May your talents shine brightly in whatever you choose to do.
