Re the whole Tommy's death scenario:
First of all, I think Sam and Alcide have no real rights to be on the revenge path against Marcus, since we know Tommy either died by suicide or because Sam and Alcide's denied him care. Marcus and friends just beated him up (something Sam himself like to do to people every now and then), and that after he walked in their lair and started provoking them.
Gotta disagree. Alcide and Sam have every right to be involved, since it was Marcus who lied to Alcide and implicated him in Tommy's death against his will. Then there's Marcus' threats to Sam, trying to kill him and succeeding with Tommy. The guy whom Sam beat up also happened to be one of Tommy's killers, who is no more of a saint than Crystal's late daddy, the guy whom Sam beat up, who dissed Sam and provoked him more than once. Tommy may have wanted to die, but that doesn't mean that Marcus & Co. should get away with killing him.
Alcide is a big boy and he should have stayed out of it in the first place. it was bad judgment to help a guy like Marcus on an errand like that, but even worse judgment by not stopping things sooner. And now he's tagging along with Sam, trying to make things right, but it's still Sam's death to avenge not his. He was complicit in Tommy's death on some level, and his presence in the revenge plot is rubbing me the wrong way.
Not me. Marcus is not only a big boy himself, he was the ringleader, so he could have stopped that shit much sooner, left Alcide out of it and/or never started it in the first place. Alcide is no more willingly implicit in Tommy's death than Tommy himself or the actual killers. Marcus looked Alcide in the eye and lied about his intentions re Sam and Tommy was suicidal, so he probably would have died eventually anyway, no matter what Sam, Alcide or anyone did. To me, Alcide's only mistake where Marcus was concerned was giving Marcus the benefit of the doubt. It's Marcus' behavior that's offends me. Marcus is a bully, a liar and a cold-blooded killer and Alcide's
the bad guy? Not buying it. As for Alcide's involvment in Sam's vendetta, that's up to Sam. If Sam didn't want Alcide's help, then I think he would've said so-and Alcide would respect his wishes just like he did Tommy's because that's who Alcide is. He tries to do the right thing as much as possible, whether it's p.c. or not, whether other people like it or not. If Sam wants Alcide's help, then that's good enough for me.
