Zoe Rivas: Boy Crazy?
So this is a phrase that’s bandied about to describe Zoe Rivas in S13-14, but I don’t feel it fits as well as the use suggests. Zoe has a lot of plots about boys but just as easily the focus could be put elsewhere. And if you compare her to other characters her actions are a lot easier to defend and explain.
Defend as in ‘explained by plot and character’ not defend as in ‘Zoe Rivas is a good person.’
Now I’m looking at the whole arc of Zoe, not just individual writing arcs of the show, so while she was written early on as straight with probably little idea she’d be gay… we’re keeping that later retcon in mind for this.
Cut for length go!
