      Personally I thought that the end of season 14 was a good place to put the series to rest (also infuriating, I wanted to see that fight). Boom Church dies so his friends can live and our view of the story goes with him.


      That said, I'm glad that It is still going, but it has to end sometime.

    "Red, Whites, and Blues working together? That sounds un-American." That actually sounds American. And British. And Australian. And New Zealand. And French. And....I'm just gonna stop here. There's some names you guys aren't gonna like if I bring up all the flags that has only use red, white, and blue.

    Given that Church is getting revived (again), my bet's on Grif coming in for an ex machina moment on one of the last two episodes. Since I'd say there's a 90% chance of that happening, the real question is "how?" My bets on the classic "spaceship crashes into bad guy just before he finishes off hero"

  • Koragg1 Jaeger Pilot

    I'm honestly not surprised by Grif's decision... it was bound to happen that at least one of the group would have finally had enough of this, and just want to stop.  Idk if the story will bring Grif back into the fray, or just keep him on that island.. but I honestly do not blame him for wanting to back out before shit got real (Though, the whole, him telling them that he hates them, was very cold)

    Either way, from how Grif was reacting, it's best to keep him out of the fight, seems like it would just do more damage to him, both physically and mentally


    But, this episode was really good, and I really liked Tucker and Wash's talk... you can tell how far their "banter" has evolved, from just insulting each other, to friendly/fond jabs at each other, and I'm really happy with the development between their characters

    Yeah, it was great when they were all being just funny, but seeing the real people behind everything is always nice to see.. very well written

    • teamMAZE

      6 months ago

      Well Grif didn't say that he hates them in front of their face. He said that to Dylan. He just said that he didn't like them, and that is true per se. Grif doesn't "like" anyone for that matter. And I don't blame him for being fed up with all the thing with Church and Freelancers and finally quitting. Anyone who knew his character would have seen it coming miles away. I don't think Grif was cold. What he did may seem cold, but he was being sensible in a way. Besides, Church isn't even Grif's fellow teammate or blood family. Why should he have to care? He really doesn't have to. And that goes for all the Reds. None of the Reds have to care, and I'm surprised the other Reds, especially Simmons have not thought of that yet.  


      For quite a long time, the Blues have taken the Red's aid for granted, and I think this is going to be a turning point for them realizing just how much they have been given help. Even the people amongst the Red might have realized that they've have taken each other for granted. 


      I don't think this is going to be the end of Grif though. I'm pretty sure we're going to see him again.

      Geoff took a sabbatical, which is basically a long vacation (he did not quit as some people think)

  • Copper-Zen

    First:  All the feels! 

    Second:  I hate to say it but it really, really makes sense for Griff to get fed up and quit.  It's certainly plausible character development.

    That said I don't buy for a moment that he's gone for good this season.  His voice actor Geoff taking a sabbatical doesn't mean they didn't finish all of the voice work for this season.


    Even so, I kept wanting to yell:  Griff---Come back!!!

  • KarmicNormal5

    I see Griff's point here in saying "why can't church just stay dead".

    As much as I love Church (btw Burnie you have done such an amazing job as church over the years) It does make sense. Every time church got back to life the season(s) always becomes just about Church. Like look at the time he was brought back as Espilon, the seasons became just about him and the reds and blues always end up dealing with something that's Churches problem. So I do see Griffs point. But, by everything that's going on so far, i feel it'll be a pretty grate season.

    • DavidLS FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      6 months ago

      It'll definitely be good a great season from what we've seen, but I do agree. The plot armor has been removing any tension the show tries to make. I don't really mind, but when you know no one of significant value, the main cast, will really die, the attempt at tension becomes quite boring if not a waist of time for the story. I see your point, it's just a minor weakness in a great show.

  • krabbie229

    Let's give Griff a few episodes to think. He'll probably starve of boredom and think about how he misses his friend Simmons and the bItching of Sarge towards him.

  • shadowspark

    7 months ago

    Why are any of them surprised Griff (the 2nd f is very important) did this? Of everyone, they should have seen this coming a mile away, the one time they get a vacation he wouldn't want to leave. To be honest, from Dylan's visit to BG, I knew they were hinting at Grif doing this. As well as I can see how this will affect Sarge's head and bring him to realize just 'why' he really hates Grif. Simmons will fall when Sarge does, Donut will get emotional and Lopez...yeah not sure there.

    As for the Blues, their gun-ho attitude might be their downfall. Caboose is a loyal and lovable idiot so I doubt as much there, but Tucker... I forsee him having problems. I feel that most of their connection is that Chruch was in both of their heads at one point, but as Tucker remembers the lumps of 'smoal' (I wonder if anyone remembers THAT reference) and his antics, he's going to waiver a bit.

    Don't forget what happened this episode, Dylan was right, their story isn't over. I don't think Grif will stay, ya gotta remember one thing about him. The reason he was lazy was, since Doc enlisted but refused to be red or blue and was a pacifist, they opened up the first draft in years and Grif was picked. So Grif made it his mission to do as little as possible. I'm calling it now, he's going to get bored with it without a commanding officer bitching him out about it

    Oh goodness! I also forsee Doc randomly reappearing and talking to him D=

  • JasonSovan

    Damn this one hit so close to home and breaking the fourth wall. Then it just went down heavily that even Sarge said to Grif, "Seriously Grif, turn around..." He doesn't want to see Grif leave. That shows that Sarge need Grif.
    Also, because Geoff is still on sabbatical leave. Grif should be as well.

  • Queenagentnewtexy

    oh my gosh, I did not see that coming


    all so should of said this in like a episode ago before this one


    that ship just got real, with Grif and Simmons.


    and like did they seriously just go to that whole 'White Team' thing? just wait, soon enough the real White Team will come and of course there will be equal color on that team so being called 'white' is just a team name because the skin color of them can be tan, yellow, snow, black, white and even green, and they will be really mean girls.........and maybe a weird one


    cause there are regular girls, the mean girls, the shy girls, the girls that is like Grif's sister and then there is the weird girls


    I think Grif needs a hug, and maybe some comfort food.......


    but still, him and his team have been through so much together........and deep down he does care about them.........I mean I have my own lazy moments myself, I even stuffed my face full of more food before but it doesn't seem as much as it use to be but, I think I might know half the reason.........he might be done with the heartache of losing someone and just tired of fighting a fight that wasn't really his own in the first place.........I know how that feels, like once someone who I respected and kind of saw as a friend hurt me really badly for something that they wouldn't tell me........sure we made up.......but it still hurts at times when I think about it too much, what hurts the most is still not knowing what I did or didn't do that they never told me........and them not telling me, hurts even more worse than what they did to me..........at times it feels I shouldn't get too close to anyone half the time, even if I still talk and chat with friends and others

    I still take more time to myself, I just don't want to make the same mistake again that will cause me to be so hurt there might not be anything left of me, and well I could be wrong but from what I see

    but Grif does seem like he is going through some pretty heavy stuff maybe even more than the stuff I myself have been through before, but I think he should at least not turn his back on not only his friends but his family..........cause his team isn't just his team they are his family and you do not turn your back on them, so he better suck it up and get that big old butt moving and do it for his family! cause no dirt bag gets left behind! unless someone forgets him!




    this was a awesome episode by the way.

    Man this was heart breaking to see Griff give up entirely, especially on how this will impact Simmons later on. Both of them went through so much shit together over the years you know. 


    But this is not the end of his story. Either at the end of season or by next he'll make a return and rejoin the team despite how much they get on his nerves from time to time.

      I'd like to imagine that while on their epic adventure Jax will take a bullet for Dylan, preferably right in the ass again, and this time die. He will then be resurrected as a ghost and at the end of the season we find out the whole time he has been an AI who Dylan uses as her camera man! 


      In fact Jax was Frank, but he had figured out that he was an AI and so tried to destroy the evil press from the inside before being overwritten to save his virtual wife! We only think he quit because that is what Jax was told as the cover up for him really being Frank! 


      (If any of this theory is true then I know I am definitely still watching RvB here.)


      Seriously though, I hope your idea is right @Zeible because that would be the best!

  • IAmCapNevada

    here's my thinking. They record these way before release right? Just like with let's plays and such, but farther back. Geoff was present long enough to voiceact an entire season. I think they figured we'd know, as fans, that geoffs takin a break, and we'd assume that this would mean Grif is gone for good. I see Grif heroically showing up towards the end of some shit, or somehow gets roped back in, or realizes he's better off with the idiots he's known. This is NOT the last we've seen of Captain Dexter Grif.

    This and the last episode are probably some of my favourites from the whole series... The whole tone of that scene was fucking brilliant.

  • Senevir FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    Unless I'm forgetting something, I'm guessing that this "stupid" AI of Dylan's is her "husband," James Adler. He probably doesn't even realise that he's an AI.
    Mind you, James Adler isn't a very AI-like name. So.... is his name significant? 
    Either that, or she stole VIC.

    • grampaeric FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      7 months ago

      James Adler is an actual person, not an AI. The AI she has is most definitely Vic.Dylan clearly doesn't want to kill or hurt anyone. She Purposely called the hospital before shooting her camera man in a non lethal spot, and then felt so much remorse she tried handing him a clean way out which would only hurt her chance of success. She kept Vic and is most likely trying to counsel him out of his suicidal depression.

    So, this is getting really meta, and I'm not talking about the episode.
    My theory is that nearing the end of the season, if/when/whatever Church gets found, and he has a Dorothy Gale moment of "Oh, you were there, and so were you guys, and... wait, where's Grif?"

    The rest of the Reds and Blues explain to him that Grif was through, and Church is like, "Wow, guess he really is a lazy sack of shit."

    BUT, and here comes the meta, Geoff's RT Wiki page (albeit fanmade, and more than likely having had no part in decision-making for this season's story) describes him as: "He is known for being very competitive and apparently always willing to prove fellow staff member Burnie Burns wrong."

    Who does Burnie Burns voice? Church. What will Grif, who is voiced by Geoff Ramsey, do? Prove the ever-loving shit out of Church wrong. There will be a shootout with the Fakes, and who will come and save the day? More than likely in an awesome vehicular entrance, Grif destroys his own Doppelganger, and perhaps a couple of others, and shows the others that he's not at all lazy, but that he absolutely does hate them from the bottom of his freaking heart.
