I read this and cringed. Poor Amanda. The opportunity to play Mary Morstan is turning out to be a double-edged sword.
Anyone who is sending her death threats because her character is shattering a precious illusion needs a reality check. Perhaps they see it as a way of venting their disappointment that their OTP will never become part of the show’s dynamic. It’s easy to be cruel over the internet. But they should stop to think how they would feel if they were the target of such harassment.
What these ‘Twit assassins’ are doing is called bullying. Plain and simple. Anyone who thinks such behaviour is an acceptable expression of disappointment should see their doctor. Preferably soon.
It’s the worst feeling
When you used to be good at something and no longer are for whatever reason. It’s like losing a friend, really.
