people saying that what tord did in the end isnt much more than other atrocities the boys have committed in past episodes (zombeh attack, zanta claws III the list goes on) with a death count of 1 and 2 destroyed houses is kind of futile because the narrative is totally against tord in the end. i dont like it, but the show basically retconned him into being the devil on earth and it’s going to stay that way.
it sucks. it’s not the funny lighthearted tone of eddsworld it’s just pure miserable ANGST with a “haha look at this one off joke that still feels really bitter because we’re still funny ;)” it’s not just a legacy thing. other legacy episodes weren’t like that. i get a finale is supposed to feel somber but the end basically was 2 episodes dedicated to throwing tord in the incinerator and making tom the Cool Straight Man Hero Who Saves The Day (yeah, i know that wasn’t the intention of the episode but it still damn felt like it. turning one of edd’s close friends into a metaphor for the disease that killed him and “took everything away” without (i assume) his consent is goddamn sinister. characters are separate from the real life counterparts be damned)
