ODAAT fans, it’s been just under two weeks since season three dropped, and we all binged it so fast we lost sleep for it. Okay, that might have been just me, as I was watching on an airplane ride, but it was totally worth it. Season three brought our favorite gang back, and introduced some new characters that intertwined with our faves stories, reminding everyone how damned wonderful this show is.
Bellarke fans, I count myself among you in how much I love Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin’s story. However, the mood as of late around the fandom has left a bad taste in my mouth, where I feel compelled to get a few words out there.
To start, I’ll freely admit that I love and easily get attached to TV shows and their characters. That said, when I don’t like a specific direction that storytelling has taken, I either suffer through it, hoping for the best, or I quietly show myself out. We all have a choice of what to spend our time watching, as it’s not like there’s a lack of options in peak TV era.
You can say it — it’s definitely an ironic title. But it’s taken a long time for these words to come together and make sense in my own head, so I can write them down for you. As most of us, who take to the vast space of the internet in search of fellow fans, opinions, and thoughts about our television shows will tell you, it can get — to put it politely — dicey.
