so here’s why i’m angry about rebecca jones’ suicide on chicago fire:
- when jones was introduced she was practically made to be unlikable and at first, I didn’t like her at all. but then we’re made to understand her, see the reasons why she is the way she is and I began to root for her. she was well on her way to become an extremely likable character with alot of potential.
- she was the only female firefighter on the show and they killed her, instead of keeping what could have been a valuable form of representation for the show. even though it’s obvious that dawson is probably going to become a firefighter eventually, why can there only be one female? it seems like from the beginning the show has presented this situation as it had to be either jones or dawson.
- there was so much potential. i wanted to see this girl fight. i wanted to see her rise up against her father’s restrictions and expectations, against the stereotypes and discriminations from other firefighters and even strangers. i wanted to see her band together with casey and boden to stay at 51. i wanted to see her become closer with dawson and shay and prove the the girls are just as good and as capable as the guys. i wanted to see her develop relationships with all of the characters and there was so much potential for her to do so. jones was such a good fit in terms of chemistry and personality with the other characters
- i feel like this is another example of lazy writing. what exactly does jones’ suicide accomplish? she wasn’t around long enough for her death to really sadden and effect that many viewers. her death was not at all vital to the storyline. jones’ taking her own life seems to have happened to serve three ridiculous purposes: bring dawson and casey closer together, “make room” for dawson to be a firefighter at 51 and ofcourse, to cause conflict and manpain. when all of these three purposes could so very easily be accomplished in a wide variety of other ways.
- we don’t know much yet about how exactly her death will be handled and i know she wasn’t a main character, but her suicide seems like an after thought, a sidenote thrown in at the end.
- it seems like jones’ death was a sloppy way to get rid of the character and make room for other stories. which poses the question, what was the point of rebecca jones even existing on this show anyway? was she just a mere plot device?
- if the actress decided to leave or wasn’t planning on staying in the first place, there is a variety of ways they could have sent her off that would not include killing her or using her as a gross plot device.
killing off women or making them act like assholes as a plot device for men storylines is getting recurring on chicago fire, but with rebecca it was a whole new low. i’m getting tired of your shit, dick wolf.
According to Edgar Wright, the flavour of the cornettos featured in the unofficial ‘Three Flavours Cornetto’ trilogy represents the motif of that film. The red or strawberry flavour in Shaun of the Dead represents blood and zombies, while the blue/original flavour of Hot Fuzz represents the police force. The green/peppermint of The World’s End represents science fiction and extraterrestrial elements.
one year later this is our love letter back to you, thank you.
