Only just seen this, thanks for starting it.
I agree, pregnancy and babies don't really fit into an action series. That said, I hope Max doesn't miscarry. It would be too cruel, and especially so for Leon.
Max will have to remember never to let R&D help out with childcare. Who knows what experiments they might think up with a real live baby available!
I once heard the novelist Emma Darwin talking about writing series. She said there's a school of thought that writers of long running series should introduce a significant new twist around Book Six to prevent the series running out of steam. So maybe someone has told JT she should do that. But I'd have thought there are still enough unresolved storylines, without needing to add a baby.
