'The Alienist: Angel Of Darkness' Episode 4: John lashes out at Sarah, angry fans say he doesn't deserve her
'The Alienist' amped up the intrigue, suspense and romance with Episodes 3 and 4. While Sarah Howard (Dakota Fanning), John Moore (Luke Evans) and Laszlo Kreizler (Daniel Bruhl) have been wracking their brains to solve the mystery of the missing infant, there has also been much tension between John and Sarah, enough to be the only topic of discussion on Twitter.
John is humiliated by his Marie Antoinette-ish fiancee Violet and her father at their engagement and this leads to a particularly uncomfortable conversation between John and Sarah. Fans have been rooting for the two to admit their love for each other for a while now, but after this conversation, many fans are not sure anymore. John lashes out at Sarah with some stinging words, leading upset fans to say that he doesn't deserve her.
"John just proved to me why he doesn't deserve Sara. He lashes out when she brings to him the truth. #TheAlienist," one wrote. Others tried to defend John by saying that he was clearly pushing away Sarah, and fooling himself. "John is just trying to push away his own feelings for Sara by pushing her away, #TheAlienist," a fan wrote.
"John and Violet make me sick and those people are ruining a perfectly good cake. #TheAlienist," wrote an annoyed fan. "John's being a bit sharp there. He's lashing out because he's not processing his doubts. It's not Sara's fault. #TheAlienist," another tweeted. "Open your delusional eyes and heart, Moore. Sara is the one... #TheAlienist," another wrote.
"Seriously John... Sara... come on you two idiots! GET IT TOGETHER ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #thealienist," one exasperated fan wrote. "Damn! He just called sarah a tributary! That was a sick burn.... I think. Idk. #TheAlienist," an angry fan wrote. Some are just hoping for a kiss to seal the deal, but obviously that won't come so easily. "Can john and sara just kiss already? Actions speak louder than words and most times hurt less. #thealienist," a fan tweeted.
Others want to give up on the couple altogether and say that Sarah should be with Laszlo. "Sara has never been ashamed that she doesn't fit into high society. John craves its acceptance. Is it time to ship her with Lazlo? #TheAlienist," a fan tweeted.
Well, they'll have to sort their relationship out, sooner or later. 'The Alienist: Angel Of Darkness' airs on TNT on Sundays at 9 pm ET.
