Hope everyone caught the latest episode of “Salvation” or as I like to call it The Grace Barrows Show. It is a little heavy on Grace in my opinion. Cabrerais touted as the star but the whole show seems to hinge on Grace.
The show relies on a certain soap opera formula. You know the old how much crap can we dump on one character.
I had a lot of issues with this episode. I don’t even know where to begin. Let’s start with Grace. I know there are a lot of Gracius fans out there, I just am not sure why. I prefer Darius be with someone else, anyone else. Grace is fickle is a nice way to put it, a self centered slut would be a more accurate way to put it.
She was in love with Harris. But wait maybe she is in love with Darius. Oh wait maybe Alonzo is the one. Please. All of them should run. Grace is not exactly a stand by your man sort of girl. She supposedly loves Darius, yet she didn’t insist on staying with him during the nuclear scare, she fled to the bunker. I don’t know about most girls but if I am in that situation I am staying with the person I love.
When Grace emerges from the bunker she is upset because Darius isn’t fawning over her. He has the stress of the world but he should take time out to adore Grace. He tries to explain but she gives him the cold shoulder. She then goes on to take up with the brother of the woman she shot. She hasn’t slept with the man she purports to love but she is all there to fall into bed with Alonzo.
To top off her charm she doesn’t trust Darius and leaves him when he is relying on her the most. The writers like to tout her as a “strong” woman. Well if strong means self centered biatch I guess so. Oh and remember Grace’s daughter? Neither does she.
She didn’t seem to have any post traumatic stress over killing the guy who tried to assassinate her so why the angst over shooting Rayburn? I have never figured out why they tried to cover up a self defense shooting in the first place. Makes no sense.
Graceis all too eager to throw in with Harris to plot behind Darius’s back to have him declared unfit for the job.Harrishas never liked Darius and he can’t stand the fact Tanz is President. Grace knows this but she is on board.
Then there isJillian. Not too bright little Jillian. She should pick a side. She can’t be loyal to Liamor Darius . She betrays Darius by visiting Liam and then carrying out his wishes to visit Resyst. Then she actually believes the lies she is told and carries them back to Darius. When he is upset she gets on her high horse and resigns. She was totally in the wrong.
Let’s talk about Liam. Liam is just plain dumb. Lead around by a woman, he is totally naive about Resyst’s motives. Does anyone think if they find a solution to the meteor, they will offer it up with no strings attached. We all know that will happen.
Liam is a traitor. He didn’t have to tell Resyst about Darius’s plan to disarm their nukes. By telling them he is responsible for their nuclear threats, not Darius.
So in the end,Darius was abandoned by everyone he cared for and trusted. I don’t blame him for doing a runner. If I was him I would go to Lazlo’s cabin and hide out. Let Grace figure out what to do, after all she is the kick ass woman of the show, right? Maybe she can become president and sleep with the whole staff!
