First, Becky told Figgins the truth. Good on her!
And now what's really got me unsettled. Ryder.
The character disclosed that he was abused by a babysitter. A teenage female babysitter.
What do the other boys say? That's not abuse! It's you getting lucky!
(Cue so much facepalming)
Ryder finally stopped arguing and mocking proclaimed that he was a stud, and the thing was dropped. The girls tried to come to his defense, but no one would hear them. Shue only said that he has to report it.
I don't know where they are going with this.
- Is the jackass reaction to highlight victim blaming?
- Will Shue and Emma step in and set those boys straight?
- Will Bieste slap some sense into them?
I have a feeling that this isn't the last we're seeing of this. The reactions were a bit too ridiculousness They were over blown. Meant for the audience to see how stupid it all sounded.
I pray he comes back to this. it's too big an issue not to.
