Now this has really irritated me how long these boys can continue being fake cops without anyone battering an eye. It wasn’t until Larping and the real girl that I thought hey Bultar the furious, is questioning our heroes, that he has sussed that they badges are not real, I don’t believe it I cry. Someone is actually examining their mock badges. “The ID number has shifted to 10 digits, with two letters mixing to the end of the year, and seals from last month. Really good work, but its just the turn of the weekend, so you’ve got to follow the rules. ” Now Bultar was brave in knowing his knowledge, and tackling our supposed fake agents. Was he pulling their leg, or actually meaning what he said?
Also tonight whilst watching Yellow Fever, I noticed the guy they were interviewing in a home asked to view the ID badges, and Dean suffering from Ghost Fever earlier says to Sam about them being fake badges, and is nervous in front of the old man. Now these seasons are four years apart, and its taken the writers four years to add this little tad of false information about fake ID badges. How have these boys really got away with this for so long. Even when I think back to the pilot and the boys are on the bridge, talking to the police officers who quiz them jokingly how young they both looked, in such a senior role. Okay with closer viewing, we notice the topic of conversation has crept into the stories now and then. Bobby used to be their back up, if they were ever picked up. I also remember a time in Sex and Violence season 4, that the Siren didn’t believe who they were and did speak to Bobby for authorization. But now Bobby is no longer, this has not crept back into the stories. Bobby also used to man the phones for the boys and other hunters as a senior back up officer. So once again dodgy dealings behind the scenes. Has this mantle now been handed down to Garth, is he senior management in control of hunters and their authority?
We no that the boys do good, but are fakes and as we no are breaking the law. So my argument in all this has always been, why are they never very often questioned, and why do citizens never really question the badges like Bultar. (even if he was kidding) It was an embarrassing moment for the boys to be pulled up in this fashion. But without Bobby’s backup they have to be extremely careful in copying real cops. How will they ever explain themselves if they ever are pulled up over something so serious? and what real message is this sending out, that its okay to act as fake cops? Also having numerous ID names would this become even more tricky when people call them back, as they have to remember what names they were using, on what case. When usually a cop only has one name, his real name. I am amazed they’ve not slipped up on a name if they were DS Rosewood when they were supposed to be DS Ford. Oh and by the way, I think the length of Sam’s hair is beginning to be a joke. Could he really pass off as a cop, “with long flowing hair!!”
So Bella as ever, would love to no about how you feel that our heroes are risking a lot, when they pretend to be real cops. What else could they get away with being without really breaking the law? considering that they are doing something so worth while, saving a life! Type away angels, as I love this topic.
