Not Marco. He was my favorite

For those of you who watch Neighbors and come from Australia you'll know what I'm talking about, but for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about Neighbors is an Australian soap opera and recently there was a bush fire and some of favorite people were in it, but my absolute favorite was the one who died.

Marco wasn't on the show that long but I grew to like him. He was Carmella's boyfriend and a sort of second father to Carmella's daughter Chloe, as he couldn't have his own kids. Just after Chloe was born there was a christening held for her and Marco was asked to be her godfather but Chloe's dad Oliver didn't really approve, Oliver thought Marco was trying to take Chloe away from him because he couldn't have his own kids.

When he was rescued from the bushfire he was taken to hospital and Dr, Karl Kennedy told him that his fluids were down and if his kidneys collapsed there wouldn't be much they could do, so Marco didn't have long to live, he didn't have a few days to live, he had a few hours to live.

After he found out he was going to die he convinced Carmella to marry him right there in the hospital, she accepted. Karl didn't tell Carmella that Marco was going to die but she knew he was.

At the end of the episode Carmella and Marco told each other how much they loved each other and how proud Carmella was to have a husband like him, corny I know but it made me cry a little. The last thing you see is the two of them holding hands tightly and then Marco's hand loosening as he dies.

About once or twice a year on Neighbors someone dies or theres some sought of accident, why did Marco have to die this year? He was such a nice man. It sucks how all the good people die on soap operas.
