In tonight’s episode,
Manny Maya tries to change her good-girl image by doing some naughty things. The hope is that this change in behavior ties in deeply with how Cam’s death has affected her (she’s seemed virtually unphased by it up until this point).
I feel like the fandom is going to make Clare vs. Drew irritating to watch. It’s already started because in general the fans who hate Clare and the fans who hate Drew are passionate about their position, and are unwilling to change said position regardless of what the characters do. It’s either “Vote for Drew because Clare’s a bitch,” or “Vote for Clare because Drew’s a jerk.” Nothing is ever mentioned about who can or can’t do the job based on their actual abilities.
It’s just like real-life political campaigns, where we’re basically told to vote for someone simply because “the other guy is evil,” but neither Clare nor Drew is as bad as their haters perceive them to be. If this plot plays out how I hope, it’s a win-win for both.
There’s more than the presidency at stake here; Clare and Drew’s future relevance in Season 13 is at risk as well. You have two characters whose love interests are graduating. Clare will need something to do, and Drew will need something to not only keep him occupied, but also show us that he’s matured.
