How much more evil is Shine going to get. So far this season, he’s murdered someone in every episode. I can’t imagine him redeeming himself so I’m just hoping that Reid takes him out by the end of the season.
So I need to give further opinion about this event. I see the words again and again in this fandom, YOU HAD ONE JOB!
The idea that he slept through Merrick’s murder doesn’t wash with me. First there were Shine’s footsteps coming down a dead quiet hallway, then a door opening and closing, some conversation, then our poor victim gasping for breath and again a door opening and closing and more footsteps. I mean COME ON!, it’s not like the Jedediah wore sneakers. Ok I realize that Joseph Merrick was destined to to die by his hand in this plot but I think Flight’s role in it could have been better written, maybe something like an event that delayed his arrival, giving Shine enough time to slip in and out or just some better idea than him sleeping through it.
So our new character starts off being lame after promising not to let anyone down. If you felt yourself nodding off then you should have gotten your ass up out of that chair and did whatever you had to do to stay on guard until help arrived.
