I was thinking, and even after all she’s done to V, Saeran, the people in Mint Eye and the RFA in general, i just can bring myself to hate Rika.
She is not a good person. She hurt a lot of people. She stabbed and almost blinded V. She drugged and brainwashed Saeran, which led him to believe there was no place outside M.E that would accept him. She did horrible things.
And yet… I don’t hate her.
If anything, i really pity her.
She truly believed she was right. She thought that no one could truly love her “demon”. She was sick but didn’t wanted help. She let herself get consumed by her darkness…
I wish we could have met her sooner. Let her know that she didn’ t have to say goodbye to her darkness or embrace it completely. There is another way.
I think more than a lover, what Rika needed was a friend.
I would like to think that behind the “monster” everyone seems to hate, there is or at least was a good person. I feel really sorry for her.
I know we talk abt this a lot, but zac does not look healthy. I'm watching the show with my mom, whose worked in the er and with hardcore drug users, and she said that he looks like some of the people who she would see at work (esp ppl who did the hardcore stuff like coke). Makes you wonder if he's doing anything wild
