Love: accepting constant disappointment
Okay, firstly: thanks so much for dropping this message on my askbox! I don’t usually get asked about my opinion, and I don’t usually venture my opinion without being asked because… I don’t know.
I know this wasn’t even a question, but I’ll offer my take on this topic anyways, if you don’t mind.
DISCLAIMER: I like Piz. Emphasis on “like”, which implies A) that I don’t love him, but also B) that I don’t hate him.
Now that being said, I must kindly disagree with you and I’ll try and explain why.
I truly think he was given a proper send-off in the movie. Scratch that: not proper. DECENT. REDEEMING, even. Throughout the show and most of his brief appearance in the movie, he was hardly more than a fool in love, with little to no self-respect, following Veronica around and turning a blind eye to the staggering truth flashing in neon lights right in front of his face: that Veronica didn’t love him. And please notice that I’m not saying here “that Veronica loved Logan” but rather “that Veronica didn’t love PIZ”. Regardless of Logan, Veronica would never love Piz. She never did. That is science.
Piz was aware of this, you could see it in his eyes, and still, he would accept whatever form of affection he was getting from her, no matter how meager. So for me it was refreshing to see him be pro-active and not just wait around for whatever decision Veronica would make. He decided to take his life in his own hands and be the one who called the shots. And for that, I aplaud him and respect him. And he had more character development in those few minutes when he broke up with Veronica than in all of season 3. Sorry.
Now, about Veronica… you said that you didn’t like the way they left Piz because “it painted Veronica in a dick way”…
I think this is kind of problematic. For once, you’re saying you’re having problems with how they dealt with a certain character because it affected the way you look at a different character. Now, what if Veronica wasn’t painted in a dick way? Would that make you feel different about how they left Piz? Would that make it okay to have Piz out of the picture?
Also, this might be just my very personal impression, but I think Veronica was kind of a dick. She was vicious and relentless and vengeful, and that was good sometimes, but other times, it was really bad. And don’t get me wrong, I LOVE VERONICA. But I don’t love her because she’s this perfect, flawless, do-gooder who never screws up and has all the answers and is always right, etc etc. On the contrary, I love her because she IS flawed, and on the show she acted like an asshole on occasion. And that’s okay! That makes her real, and relatable. I think I’m a good person in general terms, but I also can be an asshole sometimes. But that doesn’t make me any less of a good person, you know?
So, Anon, let’s agree to disagree on this one, okay?
