I just kind of want to talk about how each of the Lieutenants are taking the deaths.
So first we got Jensen and you can tell how heart broken she is. How she hangs her head and just falls into Smith’s arms. She looked up to Simmons and the fact she thinks he’s gone just hurts.
Then Smith probably feels the same way about Caboose. He fucking loved Caboose and wanted to protect him and made sure he didn’t get into trouble. But hell he respected him. And instead of probably crying, he just holds Jensen and tries to comfort her in their shared grief.
Palomo looks like he fucked up. Like he seriously thought that he’d see Tucker again because hey, it’s Tucker. He seemed to try to be what Tucker was and after losing a role model, he probably wished that he could have said something that wasn’t completely stupid or ignorant and somehow angering or annoying Tucker.
But the one I really like is Bitters. You can see it in how he just pauses before probably yelling and storming off how the news catches him off guard. In his Wiki it’s said that he mimicked Grif’s laziness and casual behavior, probably meaning, like Palomo, he was trying to be Grif. And Grif told all those stories about the adventures in Blood Gulch and Project Freelancer and thought hey if Grif can do it why can’t I? And then Grif’s dead and now he thinks, “How could he have died after everything he survived?” and probably wants to rethink everything. He’s furious and frustrated and is probably taking it the worst out of all of them.
They all in their own special way wanted to be like each of their captains. But now that their captain’s are gone, they probably think that they will end up like their captains. What’s the use in fighting if those worth fighting for are gone?
