Big time! Look I hate and loathe and despise the character of Annie and am no fan of the actress, but to use an attempted rape as a plot point against this character is a major offense even for this character that I would rather see dead. Don't question my logic here, I don't understand it either .
Granted Annie should have been written out a long time ago or killed off but I certainly don't want to see a female character being attacked and using that attack to further a plot that isn't very interesting to begin with or to have the so called hero have an epiphany about his feelings for this smirking wretch of a character. It isn't going to make me sympathize with her either.
Rape is a serious offense, just like murder, but to treat this attempt at rape like someone just accidently bumped into you at the store is outrageous. JR had the attacker apologize? He just pats him on the head and says go forth and sin no more? What kind of lame a$$ thing is that?
Attempted rape or the fait accompli is a crime, not a plot point. This is the second time this has happened on AMC. A few years ago Kendall was attacked in her hotel room, and it was never addressed. It was a plot point. And oh guess who were the writers? Esenten and Brown! Two dialogue writers currently on AMC. What a coincidence!
I am truly trying to give this train wreck a chance but the writers are not helping by insulting and offending viewers, the majority who are females. It's bad enough almost all of the characters are just unlikable, but to add insult to injury, the writers are now just irresponsible.
