So, I was thinking about yesterday’s upd8 and this scene kept coming back to me. Despite the potentially dangerous consequences of Jade being awake, this panel struck me with a tremendous amount of hope because it represented her reclaiming her agency after being disenfranchised by the narrative.
In the Game Over timeline she became a pawn of the Condesce’s and was forced to hurt her friends.
Regardless of her tremendous powers, for the last three years she’s been alone and unable to do anything besides wait. Then she was assigned the task of doing nothing and sleeping.
But now, now she’s saying no to all of that and she’s fighting for herself and her friends. And that’s Jade Harley.
