About that last post discussing May's line... I don't think anyone can accurately state the rest of the team had "solid support systems." Where was Skye's her entire life? And Fitz felt so alone after his trauma, I don't think he considered his support system rock solid either? Same with May, she pushed love away and punished herself for something out of her control. But none of them pulled an Anakin? I understand there are differences, but May's comment was a necessary reminder to Ward.
it really wasn’t. because first of all, to compare grant to anakin skywalker completely misunderstands his character. anakin had everything and he picked power. grant had garrett and picked, well- he mostly just followed orders. grant is nothing like anakin “i was rooting for you we were all rooting for you how dare you” skywalker.
you know why may and others call grant a psychopath? because it makes them feel good. because it lets them remind grant that they are enforcing a very strict pecking order, and he is at the bottom. and am i faulting may for doing it? no, because grant’s presence makes them all very nervous and insecure and this is a coping mechanism.
but is he a psychopath? nope. but it’s the show’s fault, not may’s, for the use of that word. mainly b/c season 2 is the actual anakin skywalker of this discussion. it had everything and it fucking squandered it.
i was rooting for you. we were all rooting for you. how dare you???
