Everything would be right in the world if Steven S.Deknight was on the Black Sails team. Remember the show Spartacus and it’s numerous rape storylines and how they were all really well handled?
Remember how he too had a poc woman be raped and that storyline was carried out fucking brilliantly, how we saw Naevia, hurt and struggle and we saw the whole path to healing from her trauma and we weren’t spared the harsher parts? Remember how even though she had a man at her sides, they didn’t turn this into a fuel for Crixus’s manpain, how it was always always first and foremost about her, as it should have been because she was the victim.
I cannot even enjoy Max’s character anymore because her storyline has just been turned into a way to explore other characters like Anne Bonny and Eleanor further but Max is the one being beaten and raped, I’d love to see more from her point of view, see her deal with it, see her reacting to it. Give us something. I don’t fucking care about Eleanor feeling guilty or Anne showing empathy, good for the both of them but how about not using a rape storyline as catalyst for that. How about some fucking respect when it comes to such topics, huh?
i know right? and the moment where max thanked anne…just, i cringed so bad. i don’t care if it wasn’t genuine, or if max is just saying what she thinks anne wants to hear. i can’t believe that this show let max be so passive and uninvolved in her own story, in her own rescue, and then for the first words she utters this entire episode to be “thank you” to her great white saviour WHO, NEED I REMIND YOU, MAX WAS CALLING OUT FOR HER OWN CONTRIBUTION TO MAX’S KIDNAPPING JUST LAST EPISODE, or literally one day ago, in-show time.
UGH YES EXACTLY. i couldn’t fucking stand that scene, especaially after Max called Anne out on her involvment in the whole kidnapping thing. i am all for Anne Bonny to get more screentime and actual lines but not like this, you can’t just use a fucking rape storyline as a plot device or if you do you HAVE TO MAKE IT ABOUT THE RAPE VICTIM, not about the victim’s rapists which is what they were doing. Making it about the men raping Max (for real that creepy bald guy was on my screen far too many fucking times for my liking), making it about Eleonor and her guilt (AGAIN UGH) and then you have Anne having a problem with it, which i guess good that she can feel shit like empathy but it didn’t have to be the main focus.
