Anonymous said: oh ok my reading comprehension isn't that great. what do you think about det. reyes? i think shes a lot more by the books than irving, but since the books are written by a racist/ableist institution, some of the things she did in the episode had me a little uncomfortable, even though i don't think she's a baddie or anything just because she's antagonizing the main characters.
I’m neutral. I understand that she’s just doing her job in a quiet town that’s gone to absolute shit within just a couple months…however, she’s making things difficult for the main characters. Though, that isn’t to say that’s necessarily a bad thing—every good story needs a few good antagonists and emotional conflict, right? People are complaining that they don’t like her…but I don’t think we’re supposed to like her, at least not yet. She’s certainly not like Irving, who was more easy-going and dare I say a little more compassionate? The way she’s handling Irving (forced elctroshock therapy???) and the way she talks about Abbie’s mother makes me uncomfortable.
I do think that she’ll be a great antagonist and can’t wait to see what she reveals about the Mills sisters and their history.
I like that they’ve added yet another woc…I feel like she may be an ally eventually.
