BRETT: Can I throw this question to the writers? I’m not sure what’s next for Ward.
JED: He will appear and things will happen.
MAURISSA: You saw that he was in the basement.
JEFF: And when you have a monster in the basement, generally that’s a problem.
I just officially lost trust in the writers. If they throw Ward to the wolves after taking so much care explaining his backstory and circumstances, I’m not going to stick around. I give it one season, tops.
Not sure if that’s supposed to be the team limited POV, or the omniscient writers POV. I will have zero problems with dropping out if the sorry isn’t to my satisfaction (in fact, I’ll just continue doing what I am already doing, lol).
*nods* My impression was that this was from the writers’ POV, not the characters. Character POV would be a different story, of course. Maybe I’m reading it wrong. Maybe he didn’t intend it the way it comes across.
Well, somehow I don’t think they’d shoot themselves in the foot and make Ward 100% evil. Just as they wouldn’t make him 100% good for the same reasons. His storyline IMO will spawn seasons and always toe the middle of the line.
Thing is, I am not up for a long toeing. If there isn’t a clear indication of a positive direction by the winter break, I am outa here. I have already given up on AOS once, and Ward was the only thing that brought me back. He is still the only thing that’s keeping me here. And no, evil!Ward who cuts his wrists because he wants to manipulate his teammates is not gonna cut it. It’s some deeply messed up shit right there, and there is no way to continue the story except by having him be sincere.
If AOS ends up sending the message that suicide is not to be taken seriously because it’s probably just manipulation by a monster deserving to die anyway, I will have to put an end of my support for the series for reasons of professional ethics.
Same. I just might be done with MCU entirely. For their sake, i hope they’re joking, but when i say i don’t trust Jed and Maurissa, thisis why. Also, sending a message of”attempt suicide to manipulate” is fucked up and wrong.
After having actual conversations with these people, I’m reading this as them speaking from the character’s perspective. Because it’s the only thing that makes sense. Unless they’re in the business of contradicting themselves.
The characters thinking Ward is a monster that cannot be trusted is canon. The narrative has called him a “monster” on more than one occasion.
You guys also have to understand that this is a third party’s interpretation of what was said. And they did not ask for an elaboration.
Honestly? The only person I trust with this show is Brett Dalton. I have a feeling that if he feels that he’s getting the short end of the stick, he will have no hesitation to walk away. And if he goes, then I go. So long as he’s on the show, I’ll stick around. FOR HIM. No one else.
