Well, thanks to JE's new interview, I've lost all the excitement I had for Thursday's episode. It will have nothing to do with Liz saving Red and will only be about Liz & her love for Tom, Tom, Tom. Ugh! The writers just don't care about this show. I love James, but the garbage we're given every week is becoming too much. Do you think the show can be saved? It seems like a lot is riding on Thursday's episode & I have a feeling it won't deliver what we are all hoping for.
Anon I’m not sure what “saved” even looks like right now. Even if the show does an about face we still have a lot of shit we’ve waded through with millions of lost viewers and many episodes that are completely unwatchable. We’re talking a show starring James Spader and there are entire episodes that his scenes are the only ones worth our time.
So I don’t know what saved means for everyone but for me I’d like a resolution to Red’s story and a reveal of what happened to his family. I’d like him to live through the series finale and maybe find some peace. Lizzington is a dream at this point since Liz as a character has so little credibility left. Even when she has a great moment I’m always thinking well next ep it’ll be same old snarky Liz. Inevitably they prove me right.
I’m excited for 4.15 because Red still gives me that thrill. If Liz of old shows up that’d be great but I no longer expect her to. I’ll try to ignore Tom because what’s done is done. The pervasive misogyny coming from the writers room is unfixable because tptb can’t see what is broken or why for that matter. Ultimately my answer will always be the same. I’m here for James. Where he goes I go. Cheers:)
