Did you like the story of Pam having the car accident, getting badly burned, running away so nobody could see her scars, and then divorcing Bobby without ever appearing again? I always that was a very convoluted story. Do you think that with VP leaving, it would have made more sense to keep Pam with Mark? They could have had him in remission and then when he starts to get sick again, they could have him go to a far away clinic to seek help for his illness. This time he allows Pam to go with him, not wanting to abandon her again. That would have made more sense because they would have Pam leave with Mark, and if VP came back, that leaves it open for Pam to return. Mark being in remission was something they did in the dream season, but they didn't really wipe out every single thing from the dream season. They just repeated whatever they wanted to keep. JR and Mandy broke up again, so they "kept" that. Jamie died again, so they "kept" that. The big loser was John Beck, since they did not keep his resurrection and because of that, he didn't keep his job! I think Mark and Pam made a good couple. I would have liked seeing them stay together, but I also liked seeing Bobby and Pam get back together. Either way would have been fine with me. While I enjoyed seeing Pam with either Mark or Bobby, I think this would have been a more reasonable way to do things. I think it's a clever way to have Pam exit while leaving the door open for VP to return if she wanted to come back. They say they didn't have Pam die in the crash because that way VP could come back, but what would they really have done to explain the disappearance of all those scars? Maybe she'd come back with scars. They were the whole reason she left, so that's important that they acknowledge she really was badly scarred. Still, even though VP could technically have come back, her romance with Bobby would have been dead. He'd be such a fool to remarry a woman who ran away from him 3 times and divorced him twice, that I don't see how they could have Bobby remarry Pam and not make him look like a fool. But if the reason Pam left was that she went with Mark to help him when he was possibly dying, then she never would have left Bobby and divorced Bobby that last time. So then, Pam and Bobby could have remarried if VP had come back.
