TACO NEEDS TO KEEP HIS LITTLE MOUTH SHUT
"John and Mary have a healthy, real relationship”
If you follow me, you probably know that I like the character of Mary and am really excited to see where the show is going to take her. But honestly? I would not characterize ANY of the relationships on this show as…I definitely agree that Mary as a character is super interesting with a lot of potential. This post was simply a response to another post in which an unnamed blogger argued that John and Mary had a healthy marriage because he ‘forgave’ her for lying about her entire past and shooting his best friend (though we don’t know if he actually forgave her since the words ‘I forgive you’ we’re never spoken in any way). My point is that if a healthy adult relationship means lying to your spouse about your assassin past and shooting his unarmed beast friend when he offers to help then working through your issues, I have been doing it very wrong.
Yes, agreed! That is not a good basis for a marriage by any stretch of the imagination IMHO, but that’s what makes it an interesting story for me. That’s why I’m looking forward to seeing what they have in store for us in the future, because damn, we need some explanations!
I have more to say, but I’m going to make a separate post so as not to hijack yours. :-)
