The Unofficial I Love Karen Jones Appreciation Thread

I received it.

Spoiler alert:   Tilly doesn't know, either. 

 

It's like everybody was in the middle of a great big shootout up on Roanoke Ridge and everybody was picking teams and nobody bothered to look around and say, "Hey, where's the drunk girl...?"

That’s just sad that we don’t know 😢

Today I witnessed how Karen stood her ground against Molly at the camp, and righfully slapped that bitch. So deserved.

 

Also welcome back, @BretMaverick777 😉

The writing implied pretty strongly and repeatedly that Karen was going to drink herself to death, but since they left her story unresolved, it could go any way.  We could assume that she got into a good situation -- the right situation, the right time, the right place, the right girl, the right man, and she lives happily ever after, and she has a life story worth telling. 👍  It's good that they didn't let us all down with a bad ending.  So there's hope.  

 

But the RDR2 writers failed to flesh out Karen's backstory or real-time interactions with any hint of latent talents (other than the usual) that would give us some hope that she might leverage that talent into a happy future.  They just dropped her in as yet another gang character.  She's better than that.  Rockstar exploited our dear Karen in their trailers, to goose up their hype, and then they didn't bother to finish her story.  😕

 

It's up to our imagination.  

 

So somebody's going to have to write the Karen Jones fanfic, to give Karen the wonderful story that she deserves.  Not me, however -- I still have to finish the Karen Daniels fanfic (cue shameless self-promotion...).

You lost me at “rockstar exploited Karen in the trailers” in what imagination??? She only had about 20 seconds of screen time in total and we didn’t even know who she was until the gameplay trailers

We didn't know who Reverend Swanson or Tilly Jackson were, either, but they both got Redemption story arcs and got Goodbye scenes.   Karen Jones wasn't afforded either.   She just gets progressively mean drunker-er and then vanishes inexplicably.   Kept wanting Arthur to pull her out of it, or to at least figure out why she was taking out all her hostility on him in particular, and why she just quit talking to him.   Maybe she ate a bullet, maybe she didn't; maybe she just got wasted and drowned herself in the river.   Either way, downfall or redemption, Karen deserves a final scene the same as all the rest.

 The only feels worse than the ending were when Karen wouldn't hollar at ya boy. By the end I was Team Grimshaw #RideOrDie.

They made Karen unlikable on purpose. You guys like trashy women and that says a lot.

 

I think if...well Arthur probably would have ended up with Sadie for sure. He looked up to her in the end and for good reason. She was a great woman.

Karen's just fun shes more one of the guys than she is one of the girls and she had 2 good robberies. You dont have to like trashy woman to like Karen.  Sadie becomes really obnoxious and unlikable in the epilogue. so bad that i wish she got killed off. So by you liking Sadie, are you saying you like loud obnoxious woman who are too full of themselves? that says a lot

That doesn't describe Sadie. She just wants to be treated like one of the guys.

Have you played the epilogue yet or still in the chapters?  Sadie in the chapters is fine.  but once the Epilogue hits shes a completely different person, highly annoying.

Dude. I played the game for 300 hours. Sadie is definitely R*'s favorite female character and an important one in the story. I don't find her annoying just because she has an odd voice.

Whoever said anything about an Odd Voice? We get it you love sadie. But doesnt mean anything wrong with Karen.

Ya Sadie's voice doesn't bother me, the fact that she turns into an obnoxious disrespectful c*nt for the epilogue is what bothers me

 

I really oughta go looking for Karen, but I can't stand playing the endgame for too long
