Don’t get it twisted and believe the hype,
character, he’s a badly-written
character like Sasakibe aka Butler-kun
from Bleach and T-Dog
because of inconsistent/lazy/clumsy writers who spent more time shilling Nolan
as original instead of Ol' Jack Burton
played ridiculously straight.
An overlooked Butt Monkey
that’s been around long enough to establish only to job
to another that the author(s) have no idea what to do with until their fate’s sealed all with a major
case of Show, Don't Tell
where potential should’ve
been from the get-go to justify the last-minute Character Development
or else it’s just Narm
and just plain Bad Writing
. He’s Meg
and “In My Secret Life” was his “Seahorse Seashell Party” in being the punching bag to “justify”
everyone else’s issues despite them doing far
worse than one case of backstabbing.
But I prefer solutions to headaches.
He could’ve been the Guile Hero
Savvy Guy Sergeant Smooth preferring subtlety to Irisa/Nolan’s Chaotic Good
, mellowed Irisa out
by comparing their pasts in detail
to do more than just bang
Nolan in busting perps or at least try
to. Just something
instead of being constantly KO’d to prove his relevance.
As a true heel
(and not the Ron the Death Eater
he's been branded as,) he could’ve been Pottinger’s Dragon,
going on a Motive Rant about being tired of being knocked out and overlooked
and calling Nolan out as a cliched jackass
where he either still has love for Irisa as a Hope Spot
for redemption or crosses the MEH for Karmic Death
justify the hate he’s gotten even on this wiki.
Not an Ethnic Scrappy
or a Magical Negro
, but the writers’ apathy and treatment of the audience during the last few eps
proved a glaring
weak point and there’s nothing sadder than wasted potential.
