“Loyalty is a robust bond,” Warren Kole continued, “however he could have to start out interested by defending his daughter and defending himself to some extent. He cannot stave off the darkness.”
Jeff’s fears had been made very express in his current nightmare, the place Shauna has electrical knives for arms and is attempting to kill him. It is a broad, foolish scene that the present solely will get away with as a result of it is by no means actually handled Jeff as that critical of a personality. However though Jeff’s not an excellent difficult man, the scene does not less than level out the central, fascinating contradiction inside him: he is fearful of his spouse, however that concern can also be form of the attraction. We respect Jeff’s choice to unflinchingly defend his spouse below excessive strain, however realistically we additionally know that it is a horrible choice for each himself and his daughter.
After this newest episode, the foolishness of standing by Shauna is clearer than ever. Shauna would not simply participate in absolutely pre-meditated cannibalism as a teen, however as an grownup, she’s severely contemplating a return to the ritual sacrifices that supposedly helped the group survive within the wilderness. If one of many group dies and issues get higher, that’ll solely make it extra probably that Shauna will kill once more the following time issues look bleak.
Nonetheless, we’re hoping Jeff stays loyal all through the upcoming season 2 finale. He and his daughter Callie (Sarah Desjardins) have each confirmed themselves to be far cooler than they initially appeared again in season 1, and it will be a disgrace if a bit of factor like homicide finally ends up getting both of them written out of the present. Jeff could be smart to start out cooperating with the police, however for leisure’s sake, let’s hope his concern of Shauna would not get to him anytime quickly.
