the magicians is...something else
I honestly wasn't aware that Jason was permanently leaving the show when I watched the finale last night, so I was in the mindset of "oh, they're gonna try and get Quentin back next season" only to discover this morning that he was truly gone.
And this, folks, is bad writing. Quentin deserved to live and continue fighting and getting the chance to be happy with Eliot. He died thinking Eliot didn't love him the same way. What kind of bullshit is that after building up their relationship all season and giving false hope to the fans? It's not good storytelling. Now El is gonna be suffering even more and lost his chance to talk to Q and tell him his realizations. It's heartbreaking. And not in a good way.
Sera and whoever else was in charge of allowing this to be the permanent end, fuck you. You took away a character that meant a lot to people and buried them in the ever growing pile of mentally ill and lbgt left to suffer.
It's not innovative and ground breaking. It's cheap writing without sincerity and awareness of your audience.
I'm not sure how I'll get through season five with this dynamic now at play. It throws everything off, even my once strong love for the show. I have an ache in my chest thinking about it.
My love for the actors will never fade, but it will take a lot for me to build up enough strength to watch the show without Q's presence.
