    Some examples of why I love Grant Ward. He has done some horrible things, no one can deny that. But he has also shown himself to be capable of caring for others and protecting them to the point of risking his own life. He is not beyond redemption. And I for one, look forward to the man he will become.

    One thing I do not understand about the Whedonverse is why so many people are opposed to a redemption arc for Grant Ward in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when so many people support the redemption arc that was given to Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Yea, I think Grant Ward will be just fine…

    “Redemption is something you have to fight for in a very personal, down-dirty way. Some of our characters lose that, some stray from that, and some regain it.”

    "Redemption has become one of the most important themes in my work and it really did start with Angel

    It was about addiction and how you get through that and come out the other side, how you redeem yourself from a terrible life

    Ultimately, the concept of somebody who needed to be redeemed is more interesting to me. I think it does make a character more textured than one who doesn’t.”
    ~ Joss Whedon

    Ok so there’s something that’s bothered me about this Ward hate for a while. I haven’t really been able to put my finger on what that was until recently. This is a view that may be very unpopular but here me out.

    To me Grant Ward represents not only the child abuse victim but also the child…

     

  9. emmykentmg:

    • We wanted to represent, in our characters, the different voices factions of our audience would have. Fitz still believes that Ward has been conditioned to be this way, and that’s definitely an opinion some of our audience has. We want to play the question of, Is he redeemable? There’s still…

    While Skye hitting Ward was an important moment, and a very in character moment for Skye, but there is a very specific reason I wasn’t yelling “yes girl work” as she hit him.

    Grant Ward is still an abuse victim. Grant Ward takes her punches for the sole reason that he thinks he deserves them….

  14. Anonymous said: The rape threat is real: He says, “You’re right Skye, you woke up a weakness inside me. And for the first time in a while I wanted something for myself. Maybe I’ll just take what I want, wake up something inside you.” Just take what I want=take you because I want you. Whether you consent or not.

    *sigh*

    Once again, out of context, it does sound like a rape threat. But in context? Remember that scene with Raina when she’s about to leave?

    Raina: Skye. We need Skye. And that’s all you ever wanted, isn’t it? The evolution [Garrett] speaks of — she’ll be an important part of that. So go get her, Grant Ward.
    Ward: Get her for what?
    Raina: The world is going to change. And when it does, she could be yours.
    Ward: Wow, you really are crazy. Skye detests me. She thinks I’m a monster.
    Raina: Are you? Is that your true nature? Or is that what Garret made you to be?
    Ward: I don’t know.
    Raina: Well, we know about Skye’s parents, about the darkness that lies inside her. I believe in a world where her true nature will reveal itself. And when that day comes, maybe you two could be monsters together.

    Raina made him believe that if she showed that darkness, he would be able to be with her; that she would love him back. Except, she doesn’t know about the whole monster thing, so she probably (most likely) took it as a rape threat.

    As I will say again, Ward is still horrible for wanting her to change into a monster, but he still never threatened to rape her.

    The ignorant hear what they want to hear. The haters live and breathe exaggerated facts. There is no reasoning with them.

    No matter how often we throw actual context and dialogue from the show at them, they continue to ignore it.

    But I applaud you for sticking to the facts.
