I like the suffragette arc, but it doesn't restore my faith that the show has any intention of restoring Julia's character-Mrs. B is a strong woman too, but she's not an integral on-screen presence either-we mostly hear of her through Mr. B.
I can't completely disagree with that. Most of us are happiest when William and Julia are working together to solve a case. The writers fundamentally changed that focus when they chose to let her leave in order to delay the shipper arc. Too extreme in my view. Julia was more than that and it makes me sad too. I'm just going to put my faith in the writers that they can get the magic of the ensemble back on track in a way that makes sense and isn't just fluff.
They need to do something to restore her role, but with each episode that goes by where they haven't done it, it increases the odds of the show having no intention of ever doing it.
I don't think they'll kill a character off, but if they do, Julia's the front runner, IMO. It may not be their intention to do so, but if I were Helene, I'd be pissed what they'd done to my character and I wouldn't blame her at all for leaving. She wouldn't be the first actress to do it either.
