You know what's interesting? Lena and Winn. They're both two peas in the same pod. Both are tech-savvy geniuses. Both have a deceased parent and a batshit crazy parent. The batshit crazy parents for both want their child to join them in their villainous deeds. Both are TERRIFIED of becoming said batshit crazy parent. Yet, we only seem to think one will go down the evil route, while we have no concerns for the other. If Lena becomes evil, then so should Winn. If Winn remains good, why not Lena?
I love this!!
Thank you so much for saying this because I have made the same argument a few times when weighing the idea of Lena going evil and the comparison between the two characters. They really do have so much in common (one of my brotps) it’s almost eerie! Yet what is the big thing that make people assume that Lena could be or even should be evil? Her name. I can’t stand that idea. It really is a case of demonizing a woman, or any person, for something that they might do despite all good intentions.
I know there is just the utilization of Lena being “tested” and the writers wanting to keep us guessing and make us doubt her, but when you really sit back and think about everything else surrounding her, every action, every reaction, every interaction none of it really needs to point at her being evil. As a matter of fact, it makes less sense the more you think about it.
I heard that Katie’s final scene that she filmed was with Brenda and Jeremy and can I just say I am so excited that Winn and Lena will be sharing a scene again. Lillian’s presence had me nervous, but it also kind of made me think that my theory of Cadmus and the DEO cooperating against the invasion could happen. It should also really provide some reassurance for those that are afraid of Lena going evil by the end of the season.
As far as Lena and Winn go, I strongly hope that this is a dynamic that they pick up going forward. I think it would be excellent development for both characters. And Lena needs another person in her life that can relate to her struggles and can be another positive influence in her life and allow her to do the same.
Look at my adorable nerds!! 😭
