She would have stayed in that town, and accepted the consequences of what hse did, and atoned for the harm she caused. And she would have done this the long hard way.
This show was unsatisfying on multiple levels. I did enjoy watch8ng Monica get powers, and I’m interested to see what she’ll do in the future, but this is also the reason I do not particular enjoy black characters written by white people. White writers have a frustrating tendency to put words in Black characters mouths that they wish Black people would say, rather than what we actually would say! This ends up coming across as deeply inauthentic, as Black characters end up acting as white stand-ins.
