What's your opinion on Cassandra in the series? More specifically, her constantly getting in between Eugene and Rapunzel's relationship?
My opinion of Cassandra. Hoo-boy, I knew I was going to have to address this sooner or later. Guess the time’s now!
As a whole, in general, I like Cassandra. I like the dynamic she brings to the team. I like her friendship with Rapunzel, because I feel that media needs more examples of strong female friendship. I like her blunt honesty. In a world where people want to make Rapunzel feel always warm and fluffy, it’s good to have a friend there who gives it to her straight.
I think Cassandra is problematic, but in that way that characters who have room to learn and grow are. It’s good that she’s not perfect. We’re only five episodes in! (That doesn’t mean I’m not completely furious with her for how she acted in “Challenge of the Brave,” but I’ll get to that in a bit.)
I feel that Cassandra constantly getting between Rapunzel and Eugene is a reflection on Cassandra’s tastes and ability to believe that people change. I have made it very clear that I am not a Cassunzel shipper, so I don’t feel like her getting between them says anything about her feelings for Rapunzel. I do, however, feel that it says something about her feelings about Eugene.
She has outright said that she doesn’t trust him. But she also helped him out during “Fitzherbert P.I.,” so she clearly doesn’t loathe him (not in the way her dad does, at least). She would rather see him succeed fairly then fail through shady means. But I suspect she still thinks of him as a two-bit hood, and that he really has no place in the palace or at Rapunzel’s side. To me, it doesn’t read as, “This girl I have a crush on can do better - like me!” No, it reads as, “The Princess of Corona deserves better than a thief who was headed for the gallows.”
Seeing how badly she wants to fight and prove herself, knowing that she wants to be a guard, I suspect she fancies herself Rapunzel’s protector, and she thinks that the person Rapunzel needs the most protecting from is Eugene. She doesn’t understand the bond between them, or why all her sharp comments and put downs aren’t succeeding in putting a wedge between them.
“Challenge of the Brave” has introduced a new idea though, that she feels the need to prove herself, that her esteem isn’t has high as it comes across. But you know what? The evidence has pointed at that all along.
She rarely talks about herself. When she’s with Rapunzel, her focus is on Rapunzel. When she’s with Eugene, she generally puts him down but doesn’t build herself up. In “Rapunzel’s Enemy,” she wanted to do the perfect job with Gregorio because she desperately wants the accolades that come with being responsible for him.
However, in “Challenge of the Brave,” I felt her behavior was… beyond repugnant. First of all, she lies to Rapunzel, right to her face. As previously mentioned, she doesn’t talk about herself, but she expects Rapunzel to just know how she’s feeling, that “a friend wouldn’t be so oblivious.” No. Not cool. Cassandra made no effort to get Rapunzel to understand ahead of time. What happened to that blunt honesty? And then, she hid Rapunzel’s frying pan, cheating to better her own chances. What happened to wanting things to be fair? She sent Rapunzel weaponless into the ring with some very dangerous people. What happened to wanting to protect her? She’s afraid of people finding out her involvement in Rapunzel’s hair because she doesn’t want to lose her job, but she’s not afraid of losing her job by deliberately putting Rapunzel in harm’s way? And of course Rapunzel has something to prove! She need to show Frederic that she’s not in as much danger as he thinks she is! Perhaps finding out she won the Challenge of the Brave would make him think twice about allowing her beyond the wall! And then, Cassandra didn’t even apologize at the end, even though Rapunzel did and did everything she could to make amends? Sure, she asked for a hug, but that’s not the same as apologizing for treating her best friend like dirt and putting her in very real danger.
“Challenge of the Brave” actually highlighted how Cassandra’s own insecurities get in the way of her morals, and how her ambition can cause her to throw everything she believes out the window.
Kind of like her father, wouldn’t you say?
So, in conclusion, the TL;DR is that I feel that Cassandra is problematic - very problematic - but these are the things that character growth are made of.
