i can’t believe Cyrus broke down in front of Mellie. that was the most shocking part of last night’s episode for me.
LMAO. I loved Mellie’s first reaction. She was like, “Sis, I’m gone let you handle this one on your own.”
me being a petty little shit and 110% done with the cranes
Remembering the unvarnished truth of Mandela’s words means refusing to let anybody sanitize his legacy. As the United States attempts to piggyback on Mandela’s revolutionary spirit, never forget that it was the CIA who helped jail him for 28 years. His sentiments toward our imperialist government reflect what our government remorselessly tries to keep we citizens from seeing, that indeed ”…the United States now feels that they are the only superpower in the world and they can do what they like" regardless of who we harm in the process.
Here are a few more quotes we are unlikely to see in the mainstream press:
(Re posting since I made some adjustments)
Ichabod has gotten way too comfortable. Too comfortable with Abbie by his side and being the supportive friend that she is (and has demonstrated on numerous occasions) to the point where he’s clearly taking Abbie’s friendship for granted. Now, he literally expects her to go along with whatever he says and that ain’t right. I am not and will never be here for Abbie being taken for granted. I mean, telling her they have to find his son? Why? He didn’t even ask, ol dude was just “we must find out what happened to my son” WE? fuck you mean we? What really bothers me is he hasn’t stopped to ask Abbie how she’s feeling in all this. A little “are you sure you’re okay with this?” Will do. But nope. Dude is all, we gotta do this, and what I say goes. What the fuck has happened to Ichabod? His sense of entitlement is unbearable. The days when he actually showed some concern for Abbie seem like they were forever ago.
Therefore, something needs to happen to knock some sense into Ichabod that he cannot continue treating Abbie like his disposable magical negro. I really want Abbie to turn up and let him know she point blank refuses to be treated in such a way. it seems like the writers are determined to make Ichabod miserable ass dude #1 while Abbie just has to sit there and take it. It’s the one-sidedness of their relationship that has been bothering me the most. Consequently, she’s being sidelined both on and off the show (“sidekick” articles)
I don’t want it to be a scenario where Abbie is in danger and Ichabod realiizes he needs her…I want Abbie to be in control. I want her to let Ichabod know that she don’t play. Maybe a scene where he has another one of his man pain rants, Abbie says enough is enough, and she ain’t here for it. Then Ichabod will see how utterly helpless he is without her. Cause let’s be honest, the main reason why he still has his freedom, and I’d go as far to say is still breathing is because of Abbie.
Now that I think about it, I first side eyed Ichabod in 1x04. In this episode, Abbie tracked down Jenny to Corbin’s cabin, the first time they’d seen eachother in years. So obviously,there was a lot of animosity between the two, mainly on Jenny’s part while I got the impression Abbie was burdened with guilt. It really rubbed the wrong way Ichabod imposed himself on Abbie x Jenny’s fractured relationship and pretty much took Jenny’s side in this episode. He demanded that Abbie track her sister down although it was evident Abbie was reluctant to do so, for obvious reasons. I know Ichabod has his own reasons for being urgent but I feel as though he should have shown more sympathy to Abbie here. If I’m not mistaken, Ichabod flat out said Abbie abandoned her sister. I don’t think either sister are to blame, but I definitely don’t think Abbie is in the wrong for keeping her mouth shut since I’m willing to bet the majority of us would have done the same. However, Jenny’s sense of abandonment and bitterness is completely understandable, especially after being in and out of mental institutions for years.
I didn’t get the impression Ichabod was helping Abbie at all, rather I think this was the first sign of Ichabod’s huge sense of entitlement. I did like the little scene where he said something along the lines of he realizes Abbie was afraid, but she no longer has anything to fear. But it seems whenever Ichabod shows any form of compassion, his arrogant and self-absorbed nature takes him ten steps back.
Now ya’ll know I’m #Team Flip Phone but seriously I need Abbie x Luke to reconnect so he can be some sort of normality in Abbie’s life. Even if it’s just as friends that’s something I really wanna see. Then hopefully Abbie can get back to rebuilding her relationship with Jenny i̶n̶s̶t̶e̶a̶d̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶l̶o̶o̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶I̶c̶h̶a̶b̶o̶d̶’̶s̶ ̶s̶o̶n̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶s̶h̶a̶d̶y̶ ̶a̶s̶s̶ ̶w̶i̶f̶e̶ and she can finally have some sort of a family again. The writers claim we’ll get know a lot more about Abbie’s back story so I’m anticipating that. But I hope to God it’s not a thing where Abbie gets all her character development in the first few episodes and the rest are full of the Cranes and Abbie basically being kicked to the curb cause there is no way I am sitting through all that again.
tl;dr, as others have said, Ichabod and Abbie’s friendship is severely unbalanced and it really makes feel some type of way. I can’t even entertain the idea of the two getting together (not that I expect it to happen anytime soon) because Ichabod isn’t even worthy of Abbie right now.
Agreed. Ichabod’s man pain is waaaaaaaaaaay overdone. It has been turning me off for the last 3 episode as I find I am rolling my eyes.
So. Much. Word.
Maybe I could deal with Ichabod’s main pain better if he wasn’t so arrogant and rude towards Abbie and she just lets that shit slide. Remember back in the early part of the season when Ichabod would sass Abbie and she would slap him down? Lets just take the very first episode, for example. Ichabod rants about his situation as he and Abbie are about to leave the SHSD and Abbie, being 100% done with his ranting, orders him to get in the car or she’ll put a bullet in his ass. Oooh, I miss that Abbie. Where did she go? I NEED her to emerge again, lest I’ll become completely turned off to Ichabod.
