- 7. Friendship that never felt real to you.
I really love this relationship in all its nuances and i definitely want it to be explored again but like - Sansa/Margaery is not a friendship. Margaery is using Sansa as a pawn just as much, if not more, than everyone else in King’s Landing. And the fact that she wraps it up in affection and kindness and that makes it easier for Sansa to swallow doesn’t make it any less manipulative. I can definitely see Sansa reflecting back on their interactions and seeing the manipulation there and learning from that and then when they (hopefully) meet again they’ll be on equal footing and maybe even be the only people who fully understand each other’s roles in the game of thrones (arianne, cersei and dany are all playing completely different queengames, but sansa and margaery are very similar imo).
- 10 Least favorite season long storyline
THE AMY POND’S EVIL PREGNANCY BODY AUTONOMY STEALING CHARACTER REDUCTIVE BULLSHIT THAT WAS DOCTOR WHO SEASON 6. Fucking ATROCIOUS and coming straight after the excellence that was season 5 it was even worse like I still cannot believe that happened. Why terrible? Such disappointment.
Similarly, the season 4 Angel arc. CORDY/CONNOR GROSSSSS, CORDELIA BEING LIKE POSSESSED/VIOLATED FUCKING GROSSSSS, JOSS WHEDON’S WEIRD WOMEN HANGUPS GROSSEST OF THE GROSS. Angel was never my favourite show but that was a low, man. That being said I quite liked the changeups they made for season 5, it’s probably my favourite season of the show. Spike and Illyria definitely helped.
There’s a lot of like, subpar storylines (i watch a lot of cw smh) i can think of but those two are probably the worst. OH AND ALL OF THESE LAST TWO SEASONS OF SONS OF ANARCHY HELL NOPE
- 11. Talk about a character with a bad story or character arc.
L E A H C L E A R W A T E R.
DONNA NOBLE. AMY POND. CLARA OSWALD. EVERY WOMAN ON SUPERNATURAL BUT MOST ESPECIALLY MEG MASTERS. JULIET FROM LOST. ADDISON MONTGOMERY. ALLISON ARGENT. LYDIA MARTIN. DEBRA MORGAN. SANTANA. BELLE FROM OUAT. MAJORITY OF NON-CHARMING FAMILY FEMALE CHARACTERS IN OUAT. CHO CHANG. ANDROMEDA BLACK. BELLATRIX BLACK. Like I could literally sit here and talk all week about women whose arcs and storylines have been steamrolled or pushed to the side by their showrunners/creators and it’s like YOU THINK I DON’T SEE WHAT YOURE DOING?? I SEE YOU. [sauron voice] I SEE YOU
