This may be a bit salty, but I honestly can’t take the argument of “But they’re just bringing him back for ratings!” as a reason I shouldn’t watch. Because, DUH. THAT’S WHAT SHOWS DO. THAT’S THE POINT OF THEM. To get ratings so they can sell commercial time, so they can make money. AoS’ ratings have been tanking for a long time, so it’s very understandable that they would want to bring back an actor and character that served them well in the past. Ward is a super polarizing character for the show and Brett Dalton is just a pure ball of sunshine wrapped in a stubbly, tortured face. I understand if, from a story-telling perspective, it feels cheap and unfair. It IS. But it’s also not surprising, for any show, let alone this one. It’s a pretty solid business tactic. So I’m going to happily splash around in my trash heap and enjoy Brett being back and daydream (happily and angstily) about all the possible scenarios that could play out. And just think…..with him back on the show, and an apparent Skyeward relationship in The Framework, not only are we going to get actual moments of Benneton together on screen, which will be marvelous from a gif/photo fanworks perspective, but we get FAKE RELATIONSHIP and probably BED SHARING. That’s enough for me.
