    Can someone please name a redeemable quality about Hunter. Every episode so far he’s annoying and gives me i wanna shoot up the school vibes.

    1. He is actually one of the more intriguing characters in my eyes. I really hope the show explores his psyche and inner demons.

    2. Yeah, I’m sick of him. I initially thought his intensity was interesting but the writers are doing nothing significant with that quality. It’s gone from intriguing to irritating.

    3. Hunter, for as much as he is every stereotype of the isolated loser in a high school trope… unlike Rick, actually truly loves his friends. Rick’s friends were a tool for Rick to feel good, but Hunter’s entire crusade is for Vijay, Baaz, and Yael. Last season he didn’t have a really good crusade (other than his comic against the cheerleaders due to Arlene). The handful of people near him, he cares about. His sister is there too, just… he doesn’t show his care in a healthy non-destructive way (his insulting her over her friends being jerks).

      But yeah, Hunter is just as much of a mess as the other Hollingsbrats, just he’s a lot more like a timebomb than Frankie (whose shutting down), and Miles (whose falling apart).

    He’s always felt alone and isolated – except for being around his dad, and then his dad left. And then he gets a gamer club at school and feels accepted and now it’s getting taken away. It’s pretty self explanatory.

  3. Hunter is actually one of the more realistic characters. While Frankie and Miles are able to hide their depression, Hunter who was closest to his Dad puts his energy into video games and mask his sadness. I do think in Canada and the US, reserved and introverted people are looked down upon. I can feel for Hunter; Tristan and Zoe are both very unlikable people but he became vice president; he finally gets a club in something he’s good at but another group of people comes in and tries to stop it. I can actually understand where he comes from. Hunter has a temper, Frankie puts on an act and Miles is just self destructive.
    I actually like Goldi and the more realistic portrayal of a religious Muslim girl in the western world. She’s trying to be religious in a world where being Muslim is looked down upon; as a result she constantly has to prove herself and be a bit standoffish to people. I know a million girls just like her.

  4. Hunter is the kid that gets voted most likely to become a serial killer in the yearbook but I do understand where he’s coming from. I was a lot like Hunter in high school only without the public outbursts of anger.

  5. I’ve always loved Hunter’s character, as he’s almost always intense and has obvious anger issues that I can’t wait for them to explore. Without giving many spoilers, the actor did an awesome job with that short monologue at the meeting, and I think Hunter made some valid points. Most people might see it as he’s being racist, sexist, and overall judgmental, but he was clearly making a valid point about how anyone or anything can be looked upon and feared. Excellent plot, I thought. Also, Jonah is so unlikable. He’s a judgmental d-bag who thinks he can talk to anyone however he wants and I don’t know how anyone likes him at this point lol.

  6. Hunter and Goldi’s clash is a pretty good example of how a pair of Knight’s Templars clashing should look.

    On the one side we have Goldi, whose only aim is to protect and support all the women in the school to be in a safe nurturing environment and anyone in her way is her enemy, anyone with a difference of opinion is her enemy. She doesn’t want a middle ground, she wants it her way.

    Hunter, meanwhile, only aims to protect and support the forgotten outcasts that make up the gamer club. The kids who failed at popularity and found each other. Anyone that threatens them is an enemy. He doesn’t want a middle ground, he wants his way.

    Both are right, Hunter is right that nothing his club is doing is wrong. And Goldi’s right in that the game is very sexist. Both are so sure they are the hero of the story that Goldi has no problem twisting the game to make it serve her agenda (As a MOBA there are plenty of male characters being attacked too, but nothing like that was shown). Hunter offered to use only male avatars and she rejected it because it meant no female representation in the game when her original complaint was female characters in a combat game. Hunter had no way to fix it, and the fact that Goldi got his club dismantled he’s taking personally, because as an isolated loner, he’s the lowest rung on the social ladder.

    Zoe’s plot was nice to spring into Cardivas, but a little hokey (as all guest star plots get).

    Frankie’s plot just felt weird cause it kept drifting into Shiny/Tola issues which drew away from any Frankie/Jonah stuff.

    The hints at incoming Miles trainwreck (both in Hunter and Frankie’s plots) were well done, as neither detracted from the plot, but set-up tomorrow nicely.
