For, what other reason would they kill off April? Did Sheree J Wilson want to leave the show? The production must've realized the show was in further decline, since Pam left. The season April was killed it was the last. But, they took the risk to continue with the boring plots and a stupid outcome for a series finale. And they should have seen the writing on the wall, that it wasn't being picked up for a 1991-92 season. What was the purpose of killing of April and leaving dreary characters in the series 'til the end? Was there hope of a Pam twist to conclude the series, which they left too late, as CBS cancelled the show after 'Conundrum?
