I don't see the issue. They made some (in my opinion) bad choices in their works with the franchise. In short, I blame them for bad creative choices, and not other people involved, nor the weather nor the material conditions. Of course this is my opinion. I mean they may be (and probably are) good people in all but this specific circumstance and I wouldnt judge them as people. But as writer and director or showrunners, they were responsible for choices that lead things happening within a franchise I happen to like, things that seem like cheap hacks for emotional involvement to me. I dont blame you for liking those things or having another opinion on those things. We are still discussing matters of taste.
