Holding your breath and lying still is like something a teenager thought up. At least copy one of these other methods.
This is why I am convinced that /Film either got punked by a source or just pulled that out of their collective rear ends. Joss Whedon has dedicated his career to killing characters and occasionally resurrecting them. Would he write something so stupefyingly stupid? Highly doubtful.

Whedon might not be privy to ABC's decision-making or he might not be able to confirm that it has been picked up. With as long as he's been playing pilot roulette, he probably doesn't want to jinx it by speaking out of turn or taking anything for granted.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
