To everyone who said it was amazing: You were right.

spoilery 1x10 flailing, bullet point style

  • "ain't none of us free till we all free"
  • Rosalee is just the best and bravest and I can't
  • (she's beautiful too)
  • Noah lying his face off for great justice
  • "maybe if we can just get her to freedom"
  • freeing others as a survival method -- that also has to be more than that, for survival to be worth it
  • "but safety isn't real, is it?"
  • everything about Ernestine ever, omfg
  • CATO LIVES
  • is it just me or was slave catcher dude 90% ready to die and maybe 70% sure he deserved to?
  • PATTY CANNON
  • "you can't kill white people, August"
  • HARRIET
  • Suzanna Macon is chilling as hell
  • "AIN'T NONE OF US FREE TILL WE ALL FREE"


On a completely frivolous note: Cato is charismatic and gorgeous, y/n? I assumed the answer was an obvious hell yes (his ruthlessness notwithstanding), but apparently not everyone agrees. Help me out here, for science?

Yes yes yes, all of this.
Cato is charismatic and gorgeous and a bastard (metaphorically), that's why I like him. I did not expect him to survive, and now I'm very curious what they'll do with him next. The one time he goes back for Noah and Rosalee instead of only looking out for himself and escaping a rich man he gets caught, left behind, and almost dies, I wonder if he regrets it. (My guess is he thinks he should but doesn't much, because of his not-even-a-crush-yet feelings for Rosalee.)

Agreed, Cato's feelings for Rosalee are more complicated than "simple" romantic feelings. I thought "crush" describes it well in that regard that it's something new and unexpected and sudden and he's interested in her, even though he doesn't know yet in which way. Part of it is admiration, which I like a lot. I thought they did a very good job showing how Cato progressed from being annoyed that Rosalee joined and thinking she was useless, to respecting her and eventually feeling enough of a connection to come back for her (and Noah.)

(I don't think it's going to happen, but: if Cato gets free and keeps the money, would he give Rosalee the funds to go back and rescue Noah if she asks? I think he would.)

Oh yes, he definitely wouldn't be happy about her going back. I also can't see him following her, he was so adamant about never getting captured again that I can't see him taking that risk. At least not for Noah; maybe if he hears about Rosalee being captured, but even then only if he has a good plan. But you're right, he'll probably always do something unexpected.
