I got caught up in this. Great show, though the story can be hit or miss. Awesome characters though.

[SPOILER - highlight to read]: Unfortunately this season killed off both Ryder and Quinn who were damn entertaining (Ryder in a love to hate kind of way). I'm not sure Widow could carry the next season as a main big bad. I love her character but she's not big bad material.

Also, I wasn't a fan of Quinns motivation. [SPOILER - highlight to read]: His fixation on a child that isn't his to the point of being willing to sacrifice every single one of his clippers and himself was horrible character motivation. He should have just killed Veil and Henry and focused on bigger things like rebuilding his empire while Sunny was thrown in as a wild card hunting him down for revenge. Waste of a great villain.

Don't forget about Baiji. Damned pair of scissors.

Maybe the Master will make a return as well. Bajie and M.K. stirred up a lot of shit at the monastery, so she has good motivation to come after them.

Well, to be fair, he was completely batshit insane at that point, because of the brain tumour. He also wanted to leave a legacy after what happened with Ryder (which really seemed like a tipping point where his sanity was concerned). After everything he'd worked for during his life, at one point becoming the most powerful individual in the entire Badlands, he was in danger of having absolutely nothing left to show for his life once he died. It was a combination of desperation and a fracturing mind.

I couldn't really appreciate the gravity of it at the time, because Bajie's indignation about the scissors reminded me of this:

Exactly.

And you ask me, Veil sent him off the deep end. It was his hallucination warning him against her that started the trip into madness.

Would he have lost it if Veil was genuinely loyal to him? Maybe.. But from her perspective, Quinn had the means to care for her kid, and seemed to genuinely want to give him the keys to the kingdom. I'm not saying give up on escaping, but there was no reason for the desperate measures she took.. She could have easily waited until her kid was old enough to, say, eat solid foods.

Instead she acted like leaving immediately was a matter of life and death, and kept pressing the issue and doing a terrible job of hiding her intentions until it TURNED INTO a matter of life and death.
