The only thing that is intense about this news is that it's
massively untrue.

Jerry is *in* the fifth season...he just finished shooting his
stuff for 501, and has a major personal arc throughout the first part
of this season, another toward the end of the season, and is on board
for all 22 episodes.

He didn't make it into the movies because of agent stuff, but
that's only the two movies, and we have every intention of having him
in the third one.

This is one of the problems with the internet...someone mishears
something, posts it, and because it came from "an authoritative
source" in this case Peter, it gets picked up as real. And then I have
to spend days correcting and "contradicting the cast, so who's telling
the truth?" You misheard. He's *in*. Has been from day one.

I understand, and that's fine, but then you should have posted
the message as an inquiry, not an annoucement of "news." Because too
many people take what they read on the nets uncritically. The way I
first found out about your message was through a number of *extremely*
angry, offensive and insulting emails I got on another account saying
how dare I "get rid of" both Ivanova and Garibaldi in the same season,
accusing me of trying to sneak the "firing of Garibaldi" under the
radar while everyone was off looking at the Claudia I
spent a great deal of time calming people down, then backtracking it to
the original source (which would've been faster if I'd just done a
tapcis sweep here, but the notes all came to me from the internet,
from those with shared CIS accounts, or who knew someone who had a CIS
account). The root for all of them was your note, or someone who'd seen
your note and went ballistic.

People need to understand that when they post unverified
information as "news," and it's wrong...and it's wrong about 9 times
out of ten... ultimately, I'm the one who pays the price for it.

No, he wasn't named after a fish, rather he was named after a
famous Italian war hero.
