I think that the series needed an edge, and that fueled it.
Don't worry, I have a plan.

Right. Every time you say that, I usually do something stupid, like jump in a septic tank.

I don't know what to vote! I really like her character (except she was portrayed as being sort of overdramatic/a little stuck-up in the first Casefile), but at the same time, I completely see and agree what the rest of you are getting at.

Maybe I should vote everyone thinking she's dead except she comes back at the end LOL! I know that's not an option ;)

I liked it because it meant they wouldn't have the same girls in every book, like the Originals.

With Iola being killed off, it was like what happened to Tasha Yar in Star Trek The Next Generation.  It added to the series.

I voted for two.
Thought it was a little drastic the way they killed her, but she needed to go.
It was inexcusable!

I was shocked when I first read it, and I thought it was inexcusable for them to kill off Iola. But I know that the series was good, even better than the original in some ways.  There was character development, the original series in some ways doesn't show that as much. The originals are like a reoccuring cycle of events rearranged in different formats.  The casefiles instead deal with an both and internal and external stuggle.
