@the-ache-of-the-ocean I get his character not doing much for you (don’t get the acting part though because I thought Sean was great). I know a lot of people felt s4 messed with his character (the “Marian” and Regina drama) and then I feel s5 abandoned his character. But I think the writers owe it to the fans (and I don’t usually think/say the writers owe fans something). Robin’s death and how it was done was all rushed. They got rid of Roland and the Merry Men right after. There wasn’t enough attention towards it, it was more of an “oh no, poor Regina” type thing. The writers wanted his death to be about Regina and not the loss of a cared about character.
I want the closure but I’ll never forgive the writers for throwing away a character that could’ve done so much more, a character they basically threw away before he even died.
