I don’t expect...
…the writers to make Liz likeable or make her kneel in front of Red and tell him he is great and perfect. I think the key why their relationship will work is because Red isn’t lying to Liz but also because Liz is always honest with Red. She never sugarcoats the sh** he does (in her opinion) and let’s be honest here that’s why Red is fascinated by her. He likes that she isn’t just saying “yes”.
BUT of course there were moments in season 2 I didn’t get why she acted the way she did - towards Red, towards everyone.
And I could’ve dealt with it IF the writers and the production would’ve been able to convey why Liz is the way she is. And imho they failed and that’s why Liz is so inaccessible. I don’t understand her. She can be unlikable and even inaccessible as long as I understand why. And I don’t mean “I understand why because I read awesome character theories on tumblr” but “I understand why because the writers were able to convey Liz’s emotional and psychological state to screen”.
Dear writers, I hope you can do a much better job in season 3! Please don’t bring back a certain character just because the actor has a contract with some big car company. Please for the sake of writing a female character in a proper way… please get your sh** together! Thank you!
