I look around this room… and I see survivors. Each and every one of you has earned that title. Survivors. Is that all you want to be? Wake up in the morning, fight the undead pricks, forage for food, go to sleep with two eyes open, rinse and repeat? ‘Cause you can do that. I mean, you got the strength. You got the skill. Thing is, for you people, for what you can do, that’s just surrender. Come with us. Save the world for that little one. Save it for yourselves. Save it for the people out there… who don’t got nothing left to do except survive.The Walking Dead, Strangers (5x02)
Help me workshop where I can’t say “I love you.”
Red fans criticizing Resser for leaving Liz alone and completely ignoring the fact that Red has been putting Liz at risk since episode one and sending her into risky situations that she isnt trained for by herself.
It’s transparent as fuck tbh
I’ve actually made this criticism of Ressler so I feel the need to clarify a few things (at least from my perspective). Yes, Red puts her in danger literally every week and for this case it was entirely his fault that she was in this position. But it’s consistent with what always happens.
However, Ressler stringently follows protocol usually, and has on several occasions complained about Liz for not doing so. So the writing that suggests they’d split up and leave each other open like this, just to be able to have one of them ambushed, seems quite lazy. So, mostly, that is what people are complaining about: the writing. I’d like Ressler if the writers seemed to have any consistency with him, but they don’t. I mean what has he been doing lately except for sitting around so Liz can get attacked, or asking a question to clarify info for the audience? If I was Diego I’d wonder why I bothered getting up in the mornings. And the annoying thing about all this is that we know, like last season, we’re eventually going to get an episode where his problem(s) are the main storyline. But rather than giving him any substance over a few episodes to build up for this and make the rest of us care, he’s just been hanging in the background for a few episodes, and his drug problem hasn’t been alluded to since 2.02 so we can’t even say ‘Oh, that’s why he’s off his game this week,’ because they’ve just ignored it since.
So it’s not transparent, at least not if you mean people are giving Ressler shit just to big up Red. I’d say the same about any character if the writing of them was structured around making something happen with the least amount of effort.
This hit me right in the feels, dear anon. I’m pretty sure I’ll never be over this silly show. :’)
