Keep Candace on the L Word sign now

Candace has won the hearts of many L Word fans, who have become invested in her character and what she represents. For one or more of the reasons outlined below, Candace/Bette and Bette/Tina fans alike all agree on one thing: Candace Jewel should return.

1. Who is Candace Jewel? She explodes stereotypes, defies expectations and melts hearts with every word and glance. She is strong, self-possessed, playful, a College-educated woman, an activist, entrepreneur, and a top: but who is she? How does she really feel about Bette, and about being the other woman?

2. A Different Bette. Candace brings out a side of Bette that viewers had not seen before: vulnerable, "topped", passionate and playful, forced to re-negotiate her obsession with being in control. Their lifestyles are so different, and they would have a lot to teach each other. How does Bette really feel about her?

3. Many viewers are frustrated, or bored, with the Bette/Tina relationship. They would prefer to see Bette and Candace at least temporarily explore a relationship of some kind, even if its only as a chapter before Bette and Tina reunite.

4. From the first episode, with the conflict over the race of a donor for their baby, and Kit telling Bette that maybe she was letting people see what they wanted to see, Bette has been shown to have unresolved issues with her racial identity. Tina seems unequipped to help Bette. What better way to begin working through this with a woman who, presumably, is also mixed? A back-story of Bettes own grappling with her racial identity, her relationship to her father, mother, and Kit, and a current telling of the dynamics of her attraction to Candace would make for delicious television.

5. Prurient Interests. Many find Candace extremely sexy, whether au naturale in overalls at work, or dolled up for an event at night. Some people have tuned in exclusively to see her and Jennifer Beals heat up the screen. Even die-hard Tina/Bette fans have confessed that they found the Bette/Candace scenes the most erotic of the season.

6. Image & Visibility. Lesbians of colour remain notoriously invisible. Interracial couples are extremely positive images, but the reality of two women of colour remains undepicted unless alluded to. There is a loyal core of L Word fans longing to see themselves represented on screen. Characters such as Kit and Yolanda have seemed, often, two-dimensional or stereotypical (e.g. the angry black woman), and Candace has been the character which has seemed most fresh, intriguing and unique.

7. Loose ends: does Bette ever talk to Candace again about what they have shared? Does Candace do the carpentry and plumbing job for Tina?

8. Even Without Bette. We love Candace: even if shes there as Bettes friend/colleague only, we want her back!
