Anonymous said: tbh since we saw Margot is pregnant I'm like 99% sure she had sex with Will intending on having a male Verger heir so she can kill Mason she did mention the whole bloodline thing earlier and Mason did say their dad's problem with her is that she won't reproduce
yea it certainly makes sense for margot to want a male heir, but i much prefer the version in the books where she kills mason and steals his sperm to artificially inseminate her lover judy. she leverages the system of patriarchy which insists on a male bloodline; by taking mason’s semen she takes his power too. that seems like a fitting end for mason, turning his own violence against him.
in the show, they’re rolling out two tropes which i really hate - “lesbian but not really” and “crazy lying sperm-snatching woman”. these tropes are just so DULL and they’ve been done to death and i hoped for better :/
…So. The BETTER version of the two is the one where Margot’s child is the son of… her brother. Who is also her rapist.
And of course, let’s also not forget that the better version is where Margot is under Mason’s thumb for very nearly the entire book under the pretense that Mason will eventually willingly give up his sperm to impregnate Margot’s girlfriend with. Until the very end when she is convinced to kill Mason by Hannibal.
