— Quvenzhané Wallis (then age 9) correcting an AP Reporter who said she was “just going to call her Annie” instead of learning how to pronounce her name. Never forget. (via thechanelmuse)
the-blue-quetzalcoatl said: What was your opinion of Lida? Even though she didn't have much screen time I wonder what her role was as a whole in Antigen. I get her role with Eve but I'm surprised Lane didn't fire her since he was so determined to dehumanize Eve and I think that Lida was doing the exact opposite the entire time.
I don’t think Lane was trying to “dehumanize” Eve through Lida, per se - he’d already done that by not giving her a name. I see what you’re saying though. My best guess is that he needed to keep Eve a) alive long enough to hit puberty and b) docile enough that she might never discover her own strength. I think beyond that, he didn’t care what Lida did; he was, after all, after Eve’s physical development, not emotional. If keeping Lida around kept Eve calm, then so be it.
I do wish we’d gotten at least one scene between Eve and Lida. We still don’t really know what Lida’s job description was. Was she a researcher? A tutor? We just don’t know.
I’m sorry, but NOTHING will ever beat the music choices this show makes.
