And I’ll just leave it at this. It is absolutely the writer’s own fault for feeling they can’t develop Robin as an intriguing character on screen. But as a fan, and a viewer of the show, I could care less that they are killing off good parents frequently. If Robin is boring to watch, why shouldn’t I be happy that they are getting rid of him? I want to watch exciting things. It is the writer’s fault for him being boring, no doubt. But as a fan, I want to watch intriguing television and he is too boring to care about. And it will be an emotional death and I think it will force the writers to actually acknowledge that Henry still exists in Regina’s world. Now if we only could get rid of Hook so Emma can do the same.
Ummm…I don’t think they ever forgot Henry exists in Regina’s world…last episode kind of showed that. Henry will always come first for Regina….now as for him coming first for Emma, well I don’t know about that.
And the issue with killing off all of the good parents is the fact that it sends out morally corrupt messages to the youth watching this series. And if Adam and Eddy’s only way of dealing with “boring” characters is to kill or write them off completely, then they certainly are not qualified to be hailed as master storytellers like they think they are.
And if we’re going to just go killing characters, then why not just kill the whole cast because every character in OUAT could be perceived as boring in their own way….Regina is too snarky and sarcastic, Rumple is just a mustache twirling baddie, Emma is a doe eyed loving fool, Snow is beyond selfish, Charming is dumb as bricks, Belle is nothing but a plain book worm, Henry is just there to be there, and Zelena is just….Zelena! Every character could be considered boring in their own way. but if they are perceived as such, then the fault lies with the writers who instead of killing the situation, should try to resolve the issue by writing them in a finer style.
Hell just look at Will Scarlett, we all know how his actor feels about what happened to his character. Adam and Eddy are just not good at these sort of things.
