    Yeah but some characters are so bad you can't be too shocked when they step out of line. But that's subjective. Like I love Moonstone and while I could deal with her banging Hawkeye (who I hate) and I acknowledge she's an evil bitch but I was still really angry at Ellis's portrayal of her as a dirty skank who would bang anybody. I always saw her as someone who went out of her way to present an air of sophistication and had a logical mind so making her a ho who killed her own mother displeased me greatly. Everyone else didn't seem to mind Karla acting that way but to me that just isn't my Karla.

I think I mostly agree with you on Karla. I don't think she would bang anybody. But I do think she would use sex to manipulate men who have power in her world. As for killing her own mother - as a crime of passion it would be out of character for her, but if done for strategic or survival reasons, then yeah, I can see it. To me she's a classic sociopath: no conscience, manipulative, superiority complex, relentlessly competitive, arbitrarily cruel, lacking in normal human emotional responses, playing at life like a game where the only thing that matters is winning in whatever scenario is under way at the moment.

    Yeah the fact that (Clint and Jan) slept together isn't what actually bothered me. The fact that they slept together and it apparently meant nothing to them did bother me. They have worked together for years and she, Hank, Clint and Bobbi worked together in the West Coast branch.

I agree with you. A one night stand was wildly out of character for Clint and Jan, given their history together.

    This is someone she has been close professional colleagues (if not actual friends) for several years before and after her divorce and through the loss of his wife. Jan and Hank were right there when Clint and Bobbi split up trying to get them back together.

    I would have been fine with it if it had been Jan and Clint had feelings for each other and they gave in to them but it was presented as a trashy hookup. And in a twisted way I think Clint did it to piss off Hank which is just...mean spirited.

I agree. Just way out of character. Plus tiresome. The endless Hank-is-a-jerk stuff really makes me tired. Just stop mentioning him. Forget he ever existed.

Clint and Jan as an evolving couple would have been fine. Clint and Jan as a one night stand was an insult to both characters.
