He loves her, she loves him, let’s pine away in our alliances and be miserable despite the fact that it won’t actually help anyone forevermore. I really do wonder what the purpose is of Marine and Alexis playing the tragic lovers separated by war or even why the war continues given literally no one seems to want it or has anything to gain by it at this point.
“They asked for peace.”
“Guess that means we have to attack.”
That seems to be the closes thing to a rationale anyone is operating on in this story.
We do however get a gag inducing view of the romance between Alexis and Marine before their father’s were killed at the wedding. And certainly that does point to a conspiracy brewing somewhere in one of their alliances and yet there really doesn’t seem to be any practical reason why they couldn’t have gritted their teeth, had a sensible mourning period and then pursued the peace the father’s lost their lives trying to create by actually doing what they want to do and get married.
Anyway, we then got to listen the the alliance babble at us about the justification for Theo’s war and then they elected a new leader which didn’t go as well as Alexis had planned so it seems for sure that bad things are going to ahppen and in the chaos Theo is going to rise up again. As to what Theo was doing this week… Not much. He was reduced to exposition boy and then they cut to another scene while he was filling the alliance in on stuff the audience already knew.
I’m guessing I’m not alone in saying that this show is quite frustrating at this point in time.
