I read the spoilers. I knew it was coming. Yet here I am, sitting in shock. They fucking killed off Ianto.
TPTB have been planting the seeds for this -- the Ianto speech in the radio play about being a blip in Jack's life; mentioning how Jack will have to watch Ianto die in Day 2. Nobody who works for Torchwood collects their pension. Considering he was going to die in S1, then in S2, I knew this was coming.
Kinda wish Ianto went out gun blazing though.
How will they even continue the series? Not even Whedon killed off 80% of the gang on either Buffy or Angel. I guess as long as there's Jack Harkness, there'll be Torchwood but would Jack even want to continue?
