The writers cannot be that stupid or unoriginal. These are the guys who wrote Lost….I doubt they’re using some one else’s story, especially a classic one like that, to help tell their own story. I’m starting to get worried though too that they’re listening to the way too loud ‘majority’ and not telling their own story anymore. They’ve laid way too many pieces to start changing things now and quite frankly, that will be a deal breaker for me with this show if they change something because of the fans. 🙁
Not sure if I had to spoiler parts of that but I did anyway just in case.
