Self-discipline. Christian, you must have self-discipline. Do not click on this link. Do not.
This is what I've been saying to myself for the past few minutes, after I noticed a very tempting link in UltimateTV's Upcoming Shows page. In there, there's a link to a press release from Fox, with the headline "'Ally McBeal' falls in love". As here in the Netherlands we're just two episodes after Billy's death (Ally's 30th birthday was yesterday), I'm just dying to know who she will fall in love with - that new guy (Mark?), or good old John Cage after all? Still, I'm resolved not to click that link, as knowing that Billy would die did ruin a large part of the surprise for me. It's only now that I'm noticing how incredibly hard it is to avoid spoilers, a problem I'm sure many of you also have with TrekToday. Just the title of the season finale, 'Unimatrix Zero', probably reveals a lot to you already, and before 'Fury' aired the Jennifer Lien mentions in the headlines probably also gave you a hint that Kes would soon be returning. I suppose the times of 'Best Of Both Worlds', when Picard's assimilation was completely unexpected, will never be returning anymore.
