For one thing, he doesn’t kill her. He tells her that it was never his job to harm her. Yes, he’s a fantastic liar. Obviously. But when she’s interrogating him, he doesn’t try to tell her some bullshit story about how he really loved her, he doesn’t try to excuse it or fake his way out of it. He just tells her what it is, it’s his job. Nothing personal. And that he feels sorry for her sake that it had to be like that. And even though it’s very cold, it’s perhaps the kindest thing he could have done for her. Because anything else would have been horseshit. And he doesn’t seem cruel or spiteful (except for when he brings up Red), just resigned.
Perhaps he has some sort of odd, pitying affection for her. Since we have no idea what the hell he was even planted in her life for, we don’t know if he was a bodyguard or what. He did seem to be holding back in his fight with her, not really hitting her but rather going for the restraining moves. And his last goodbye… I think he genuinely does believe in his cause, whether or not he believes his cause is actually good. He leaves her alive, and he gives her a clue to track down.

I don’t know. I remember posting way back in November that, while I was excited to see Tom turn evil, I was going to be so heartbroken for poor Lizzy. And somehow, this was even worse than I thought it would be, since it’s not clear-cut at all. Honestly, I can’t get a read on Tom. In ep 15, I got very territorial vibes from him when he reamed Jolene out for having contact with Liz. “You come to my house? You talk to my wife?” I remember it struck me oddly that he always referred to Liz as his wife, even when discussing the mission.
But really, poor poor Lizzy. She’s in the middle of two men who have both screwed with her mind and are each asserting that she can’t trust the other man. She seriously has no one to turn to.
Three weeks ago, my friend Joe lost his father to a long battle with cancer. Earlier this week, Joe’s mother got in a fatal car accident which resulted in her death. Joe is a senior in high school and most of his money was already going towards paying bills for his family. Unfortunately, now he has no more close family and has the responsibility of paying for the funerals for both of his parents.
I know most of you probably won’t be able to help, but I knew it couldn’t hurt to spread the word. My school and community are trying to come together to raise money to help him out with the funeral expenses.
If there is any chance you are able to make any sort of financial donation to helping him out, please contact me on my personal blog for more information. Something like a $10-20 donation could help tremendously, but please remember that even the smallest amounts (even $1 if that’s all you can do) will be greatly appreciated.
Even if you can’t donate money, it would be wonderful if you could spread the word. Prayers and positive vibes sent his way could also be a great help. This is a tragic thing for someone at his age to be going through. Please do anything you can to help whether it’s donations, spreading the word, or prayers for him.
What if we all looked the way we wanted? Our ideal weight became reality, our worries about money washed away. Your love life is exactly the way you pictured it. Do you think we’d all be happier? Or would we just find new things to hate?
