    Besides it being a very hard emotional hit for Howard and the show would this spook him into retirement? I think it would. Why not live out his years enjoying his success living la dolce vita?

    I'm starting to think you're on to something here.

    This would explain a lot of things.
    You may remember that BaBaBooey told everyone they had a meeting about how things
    had changed and that all staff should start making plans for AFTER the HSS.

    If Robin passes, and I don't wish her pain on anyone, the HSS is officially done.

    A Beth divorce could throw a Booey wrench into everything, Howard isn't getting another trophy wife without a show.

    If nothing else what a way for Howard to go out on top (as a person) and giving robin her proper props in the end! I would respect Howard for that. But that might be to decent an act for Howard.

    Yes. It's obvious he hates doing the show now. It would be a perfect excuse for
    Both Howard and Sirius

    That's my thought as well and may be Hu the tone of the show has changed as well. This might have been going on for a year and a half for all we know. I think Howard wants to make as much as possible, but probably will not be interested in doing the show if she is no longer able to be there. Gives him a great excuse to quit or further downshift.

    Howard will never leave a shekel on the table. He would try to get a buy out from Sirus.

    too late for howard to go out on top...the show is dead.

    but if robin's health gets worse or she dies, howard wouldn't (and couldn't) do the show without her. robin is howard's lucky charm and friend and he probably loves her in a way he could never love another woman.

    A year ago maybe, he's worked a full year without her now. The isdn line pisses him off more than it helps him along.

    He's too neurotic to have a dolce vita.

    We also have to believe Beth can not and would not abandon the red carpet lifestyle

    He always said a death of one of the staff wouldn't slow him down and the show would go on. He's not the same man who said that anymore. He would retire.

    The most likely scenario:
    Robin dies.
    Howard asks Sirius to hire a replacement. Since Sirius hate Howard, they won't pony up a million to hire a replacement.

    Howard will officially say that Sirius is in breach of contract and tries to sue them. Just like the false subscriber lawsuit, Howard is just angling for settlement.

    I guess that Howard/Buchwald can con Sirius for about 20-30% of his contract value. = 100 million payout to sit home the next 3 years.

    The persons that will be fucked are the 77 people working on the show/Indemand. They wont get a dime in the buy out. Only thing making me happy then is that Gary will loose his house, get divorced and live in poverty the rest of his life. I hate him so much...

    Beth can't legally divorce Howard. The prenup is exactly like the AGT contract with the exception that it never ends.

    Here's the kicker I bet a deal is in place already to retain Gary in some capacity by Howard. Knows where all the bodies are buried. Howard will want to keep him happy
