Anonymous said: Does that make sense that I hate Robin more than I hate Regina right now? Well, I don't actually hate Regina, I deeply dislike her. I see her as you do. I see her as a villain who is very far from redemption yet. BUT, Robin... OMG I'm furious with him. I do not expect Regina to do good things, I expect her be the villain, but Robin was nice. But honestly what kind of man says "I love you" to the woman who killed HIS BELOVED wife? If I was Marian my heart would be completley broken. :(
One of my fears about this season is that it will make me hate Robin. I already don’t understand how he can tell her she’s not evil. he lived in the forest, he should know about the village that she had slaughtered. I hate the way the writers are using him to whitewash what she’s done. I was hoping their relationship would be more about Robin getting Regina to see what she’s done and to ask for forgiveness, not to blanket ignore everything.
And how does he go from the end of last season ‘i would walk through Hell for Marian’ to ‘I loved her and I must keep my vows.’ That rapid change makes little sense. Except that Robin is around for Regina, and that’s basically his purpose on the show.
I don’t hate him yet, but i’m worried about how I’ll feel by the time we get a resolution for the Marian/Robin/Regina thing.
My problem is…did Robin even ask Marian why she’s not dead, and why he thought she’d been dead and Roland had been motherless all this time? Did he seriously listen to Marian explain that she’d been saved from near-execution at the hands of the Queen, solely through the intervention of random strangers from the future, and go, “oh well, she’s different now come meet her!” Because if so, can I just say how much of an asshole that makes him sound like? Jfc.
I mean I can’t give him credit just for dutifully staying with Marian, especially when he made it sound like such a duty. I can’t get over the fact that in the season finale (which in OUAT’s timeline would’ve been just a day or two before his conversation with Regina in the premiere), he was talking to Regina about his wife, and she’d even asked him how she died. He’s supposedly been wracked with guilt about being the cause of her death; and then in the premiere, no anger, nothing, not even a question to Regina about why Marian’s last known location was in her dungeons, not one indicator that he’s even interested in knowing whether or how much his own guilt is warranted, when faced with Marian’s actual would-be killer.
Not to mention that Marian’s just found out that her husband is sleeping with said would-be killer and the guy literally doesn’t have a single shit to give about that. Never mind calling Regina out for it, he basically apologized to Regina for being obligated to be with Marian now. Smdh, Marian deserves so much better than this fool. And I’d say I’m waiting for him to get better, but knowing the writers I honestly think he peaked in this episode, and it’s all downhill from here.
Regina can have him, if I’m being honest. That scene where Marian just picks up Roland and bails on them both was gold, I’m hoping it’s a metaphor for her entire arc.
