Mary/Marshall Endgame In Plain Sight? (Spoiler Discussion!)

In Plain Sight’s Mary and MarshallThe fifth and final season of USA’s In Plain Sight—starring Mary McCormack and Frederick Weller as deputy U.S. marshals Mary Shannon and Marshall Mann, who work out of the Federal Witness Protection Program office in Albuquerque, N.M.—will premiere on Friday, March 16.

Many fans (myself included) have long hoped to see Mary Marshall, who already have fantastic chemistry as friends (they have said they are each other’s best and only friend) and partners (what haven’t they been through together?), explore any romantic feelings they might have for each other. With the announcement that there will only be eight more episodes of the show comes concern about whether or not the two will ever go there, but a recent comment from executive producer Ed Decter seems very promising indeed. By the conclusion of the series, he told TV Guide magazine, [highlight for spoilers] “the audience will get to see Mary and Marshall resolve their relationship in a way that should delight them.” Intriguing, right? Can’t wait to see how it all plays out!

How ’bout you? Are you a Mary/Marshall ’shipper, or would you rather see these guys remain just friends in the end?

*****Beware of SPOILERS in the comments!*****

And then there are a couple compilations of Mary and Marshall’s greatest hits...

Yes I am a mary /marshall shipper. He has always been there for her and remember in the shoot out in the barn. I have missed mary and her sis.

I don't know. I would like to see a true friendship between a man and a woman who work together stay that way and not turn into a sexual thing. And yet, they do have great chemestry.

@julie@my5monkeys -- Do you mean early in S1 when Mary kissed Marshall in the barn as part of their cover and he got all into it? That always cracks me up. You're right, though; he's always there for her (and I remember too the episode when he thought about leaving because it was too much, and Mary told him he could never leave--awww).

@bungluna -- I do get that. I was happy with Veronica Mars for never so much as hinting at something between Veronica and her bff Wallace. That's pretty rare on TV, but sometimes it is nice to see a man and woman be just friends.

@jewelofthedarkx3 -- Yay! I know, I LOVED the conversation Marshall and Abigail had about the shooting, where she was like, "Yeah, so...you totally protected Mary over me." I mean, she was completely cool with it since 1) Mary is pregnant and 2) Mary is his partner and it's his JOB to watch her back over everyone else, but still...loved it.

Woah that highlighting thing was badass wait. I simply adore these two, and I have ever since the show started four years ago when I was 12 (:
I am honestly losing hope though, with three more episodes left & Marshall's proposal to Abigail (not to mention all their fucking lovie-dovie scenes)... I really don't see how I can be "delighted"
