the twist was honestly a fine concept but the execution has been fucking terrible, especially since they're no doubt going to keep skirting around the horrible implications it leads to. the fact that rose/pink was practically a fucking sociopath but they're still trying to portray her as a good person is awful, "oh she lied to us that was mean :(" is probably as far as they're going to go with establishing the fact she was a terrible person. i would be fine with pink/rose doing some shitty things and being a shitty individual, but they went too far and are handling it in the worst way possible. i don't think sugar even realises how fucked up rose/pink actually is as a person, she doesn't know what the fuck she's doing.
there's also the build-up, they dragged it out for far too long when it was so painstakingly obvious, people guessed this like, what, four fucking years ago now? i'm fine with long build-ups for dramatic reveals and shit, but christ fucking alive they waited way too long, not to mention the show's heinous schedule and how horribly fucking paced it is as a whole as it is. i know the scheduling comes down to CN and not so much the crew, but the show still has horseshit pacing.
