DON'T TOY WITH ME, MADAM. SERIOUSLY. BECAUSE. IT WILL DESTROY ME IF YOU'VE BROUGHT BACK UNEXPECTED HOPE ONLY TO STAB ME IN THE HEART COME MAY.
That being said, time to write another support letter!
EDIT: ALSO! I just found CBS's promo for next week's episode (different and much more spoilery than the one they aired on TV), and...I think I just swallowed my tongue?

I love when my suspicion that fandom is simply CRAZYPANTS about a particular relationship is backed up by important PTB.
