What?! Get rid of Bear? Get off this board, you cretin.
Edit: Can't get rid of Reese. Who'll throw people out of windows? (It's been too long.)
I understand the dramatic build-up per se with her getting killed after the climatic scene however overall I would have preferred she got killed during the morgue shootout. Perhaps right after Reese said to himself... come on follow me (or some such to the bad guys). For me it would have played out more powerfully (although not so out of nowhere - hey we forget to kill her ). Reese just told her she saved him, pronounced his love for her, and finally gave up his life to save her life. Perfect timing...
And yes I understand they would have had to be rewrite the end of the episode. Since her death is the driving force I don't see that being an issue at all.
