Well, with Charlie Sheen's meltdown, and eventual departure from the show, Ashton Kutcher was cast as Waldon Schmidt, a Billionaire replacing Charlie Harper.
Season 9, Episode 1 was on last night, and I managed to catch it through other means this morning. To be honest, I found it a little underwhelming, but I put that down to the restarting of the story, but overall, it was good. I enjoyed the Waldon character, which I think has unlimited potential, but to do feel that Jon Cryer will, by far, be the star of the show from now on.
Now then...Charlie...Dead, right? Or is he? As soon as Rose was revealed to have been with him when he died, and the casket being closed, and I'm guessing Rose did the identifying of the body (if it was needed), I started to think that they've left open a return for the Charlie character. It wasn't his body/He and Rose faked his death/Rose pushed the wrong guy (I got from her speech that she pushed him). With the story that Ashton Kutcher only signed on for ONE SEASON, I feel that the producers are hoping to revive the Charlie role.
Thoughts on the episode? Thoughts on my (not-very-well-thought-out) theory?
