Yeah, and keep in mind I'm talking about the show and not meaning to harsh your buzz or nothing because if it works for you - great, but something like that simply wouldn't work for me.

And they'll say that, even though she started out as an imprint, at that point she started living her own life and developed into a unique person, different from the original Audrey. She may even end up as an amalgam of all the different personalities.
And last seasons observation of the return of the original makes that soooo much bullshit. Even Audrey Imprint herself said that memories of the original felt different than all the other memories she'd "recovered" from other imprints, which means the show itself has said that there's a difference between the real and the imprint and obviously I'd rather see them keep the original original rather than simply trying to contrive something to put Audrey back over things.
In other words, I'm saying I'd rather see them move forward rather than revert back, but all signs right now seem to make me think the show is headed back instead of foward.

I agree it was rather meanspirited, but it was also one of the only ways they could go to prove that Fred was gone. Even if they'd had her simply move on to where ever dead people went in Whedon's verse that wouldn't be enough to be gone forever and ever.
I suppose part of the reason I didn't hate it was probably because it was the first time I'd felt something for Fred one way or the other. Well, that and I actually loved Illeria (damn now I can no longer spell the thing properly) she was just for me such an interesting character and certainly had so much more potential than Fred.
And I suppose that's the same with Audrey vs Original - I feel like Audrey is played out, but the original has so much potential. Yes, I realize the potential would be a lot more had they not made her and William so evil, but it's still more potential than an Audrey story at this point.
Unless their law enforcement is as inept as ours.
Well, that's why I suggested that the Barn vanishing (or being destroyed) should've been something easy for them to realize/notice. Whereas Original and William behaving badly might not be something they'd pay much attention too.
