@KMan101I think CarSon is "untouchable" because Frank can't be bothered with them as a pairing or individuals but knows he can't get rid of them. He just deals with them because of Benard. LW and Benard are going down with this ship so Frank allows them to believe they are the patriarch and matriarch of GH. I watch about twice a month and neither really has a story and haven't for quite some time. Back in the day, they would have been toast.
