I’m not a huge fan of Kelsey either and I do think she needs to ditch the wet look to give those curls more volume which would enhance her features more BUT I don’t like the way she is being made to feel that she must constantly prove herself or stand up to Tamika. That’s the same advice you give to someone being bullied. I would find it way too exhausting to have to have a game plan for communication for each interaction with queen Tamika. I’m not going to go out of my way to make someone like me when there are other people in this world with whom I can be building genuine connections. It may even actually deflate some of Tamika’s ego if Kelsey didn’t take the bait and just walked away with an “I can’t with you right now,” or “Yeah, there’s someone more interesting over there...” She should find other things that make her a relevant character.
I dunno, I still find Jeff endearing and want to root for him even after he goes off the rails. I think he needs more healing time and maybe some outside help, but it’s probably not great having to do all that healing alongside Reagan moving at warp speed.
