The anon said pete is destroying Connor because the actor is straight. Do you agree with them? Is it weird that in s3×2 Connor was a badass lawyer but in 4×2 He was a failure? BTW Was 4×2 The Connor episode this season?😈
Nah, I genuinely don’t think that is the case cos I’m sure they’ve known he was straight since day 1. Pete’s ruining Connor the same way he’s ruining ALL the characters, by rushing their development and focusing too much on dumb inconsequential twists instead of building on the stories he’s started.
I think the way he’s jumped into Connor dropping out is kind of a rush, and is an example of how he rushes from one thing to the next. We went from Connor being cocky about how Oliver was stupid for worrying, to him having a bad interview, to him suddenly deciding he doesn’t want to be a lawyer off the back of that bad interview to dropping out at the top of episode 3. It’s just a rush and it’s unnecessary, and even less believable. But also they kinda retconned his character in order to MAKE the interview go badly? It just felt forced to me and not entirely thought through - another cheap twist so to speak.
I doubt 4x02 is meant to be based on Connor, he barely featured in the episode. Im hoping episode 4 will give more time to him, because I think it’s needed. If they’re going to explore his mental health, then they need to do it properly because it’s too important to half-ass.
I’m kinda sick of reading people use Connor as a scape goat, wishing him dead, or blaming his character for things they’re ALL guilty of. No one ever cusses Michaela for being ungrateful, or Laurel for being whiny, EVERY character in this show is problematic, but they need to start exploring that aspect properly.
