Yeah, I’m dissapointed with the way Hook has been handled since “Dark Hollow”, except for maybe some specific moments.
But now, this thing about giving him his hand back (which seems it’s really happening), it’s definitive. It’s an absolute NO for me. It’s a complete disservice to the character, and much more importantly, it sends a horrible message with respect to disability.
Thank you so much!!!!!!!
I think I said this before, but I think the “Brody-like” part means that he is a romantic counterpart to her.
Or that he is like a Brody foil.
It’s very confusing, I would be 4000% shocked if they went down the same path with Carrie and Quinn as they did with Carrie and Brody considering how that turned out.
Okay, correct me if I’m wrong, but from what I understand “being like a foil” means to offer a contrast, to be in opposite sides.
For me this simply means what we’re already seeing in the promos. Quinn is questioning everything, while Carrie is like “it’s a job”. Quinn is getting desperate, Carrie is acting like everything is how it’s supposed to be.
All the questioning, “What the hell is wrong with you”, “checking off names on a kill list for a living, doesn’t bother you?”…. I think Quinn, through his own crisis, is going to be constantly trying to poke at Carrie’s concience, maybe waiting from a reaction on her part. But Carrie is not at a point in which she wants to question her job, because her job is her life vest, it’s the one thing that’s keeping her afloat. And that lack of response, that aparent apathy is going to cause more desperation in Quinn. Up until the point where something happens and one or both of them “explode”, or until they find themselves in a place where they get to connect with eachother again (enter the Weekend-like moment).
My thought right now, my concern, is that Carrie will see Quinn’s weakness, this questioning, and use her old tricks to manipulate him to get what she wants…a reliable soldier. I want to believe C&Q have a deeper relationship & she respects him too much to do this but her life is her job and therefore will she do whatever it takes to get the job done? In other words, will Carrie put the moves on Quinn, knowing how he feels about her, to keep him in the game? Love the visual of C&Q getting it on but not if it means Carrie is fucking with his head and heart. This is a bit rambling, sorry, and a bit late.
Carrie manipulating Quinn is not something new, tbh. She’s done it before, just like she’s done with others, and she’s going to keep doing it, because it’s Carrie we’re talking about. It’s kind of unavoidable. She can’t help to put the job above everything else, even herself.
But Carrie pursuing a sexual relationship with Quinn ONLY to manipulate him to stay on the job is something that, while I can’t rule it out completely, I don’t see happening, mostly because I don’t think the job is good enough excuse. I mean, does she really need his expertise so badly?? (it’s not like he’s the only skilled black ops out there). Specially now that, in the state he’s in, I’d say he’s more a liability than a contribution to the job. So IF something like that were to happen, I’d be seriously wondering about Carrie’s real motivations.
In the case that Carrie were to use Quinn for something, it would probably be for the sex itself, that we know she uses as a tool to not deal with things (which wouldn’t make it okay, anyway, if she is aware of Quinn’s feelings).
On the other hand, I like to think that, broken, in love and all, Quinn is smart enough to realize Carrie’s game if it were to happen.
