ALL HAIL QUEEN MAEVE!!

Posted on

1. The Motherly Love

Maeve is entirely fueled by her desire to find her daughter and Thandie plays that feeling so fiercely, you care more about her journey than the whole robot takeover thing.

2. The Emotional Pain

This woman is put THROUGH THE RINGER. Thandie is constantly having to play up some deep emotional trauma and we sincerely hope she's on a beach right now, relaxing after all this hard work.

3. The Physical Pain

Maeve may not have Teddy beat when it comes to dying, but my goodness, she has been knocked down so many times. This moment in the finale was beyond brutal.

4. The Languages

Can you imagine showing up to work and your boss saying, "By the way, you have to learn Japenese today." It was, understandably, a challenge and she, unsurprisingly, nailed it.

5. The Hector Chemistry

THEY ARE THE OTP. This romance developed later in Season One and as soon as it did, everyone immediately shouted, "DOLORES AD TEDDY WHO????". Thanks to Thandie, we no longer see Rodrigo Santoro as the bastard who abandoned Laura Linney at Christmastime.

7. The Mind Control

Seriously, Maeve is an unstoppable force who has more skills than all of the other hosts combined. DON'T @ ME DOLORES STANS.

8. The Dolores Chat

Even if you don't love Dolores, there's no denying that Evan Rachel Wood is a PHENOMENAL actress (we can campaign for her Emmy once Thandie is taken care of), so seeing these two act together is like walking into a beautiful dream.

9. The Akane Scenes

Maeve's interactions with her Shogun World counterpart are so touching and sad. Thandie put everything into these moments while SPEAKING ANOTHER LANGUAGE. Shoutout to Rinko Kikuchi for being glorious as well.

11. The Final Moments

Maeve using her powers to stop the rioting hosts so her daughter could enter the Sublime with her other mother was epic and tearful and brave. While it may have ended in Maeve's death (again), I think it's safe to say our boy Lutz will bring her back.
