Would you say Butterfly Assassin is an endgame ship? Or do they help each other for a short while and go their separate ways?
idk yet. I feel like he’s becoming more and more essential to the storyline, and his character has a lot to teach someone like Octavia.
He’s good, kind, without a home and lost, but he’s not mentally unstable like Octavia, instead he’s calm and collected. He also doesn’t let Octavia walk all over him: how many times has that guy totally disregarded Octavia’s requests? A LOT. He doesn’t roll over for her like Lincoln did. I also think that he’s fallen for her and had fallen for her back in Polis, and that’s why he followed her. He’s got nothing left, and yet, he saw something in Octavia that reminded him of himself… so he’s intrigued and wants to protect her. He can sense that she needs to be protected (he didn’t follow her because she spared his life… that was an excuse to meet her again, imo), he sees she’s without a family, and so is he. I think he senses a fellow lost soul and so he’s connected to her. And, I feel like that connection is JUST beginning, and there’s a lot more to explore.
So, in the end, I’m not sure if they are or not, but I do think they have a HIGH probability of being an endgame ship, yes.
What do you think?
p.s he’s also got a farm with sheep and chickens on it, which is what Octavia realized she wanted in 3x15. I see a lot of endgame potential.
