I did not expect anything beyond that. The morning my firing episode aired, my agent got a call that they were talking about a contract and I was just completely floored. She described the call as a "totally happy surprise". She is one of them, even though they find her terribly annoying, and I think that that's sort of charming. She really knows what she's doing, she's worked really hard, and she certainly wants to do her best and stick around.
