There was nothing complicated over it, it was something you could buy into and want to watch and see what happens next. If Jake had his Cobra bite Savage, who's to say he wouldn't try to have it bite Elizabeth?
Repped to the max. Great point. Anything Roberts could have done, say further harming Elizabeth as you mentioned, would have been almost expected from him, I guess you could say. Like anyone else doing that, it would have been shocking... But would it really be surprising for Roberts to go one step further? "I could cultivate her into something that even I could want."
Oh man, the end of that promo... "Let me touch her again." Walks away laughing, as Mean Gene is flipping his lid. That's fucking sick, and just so incredible now.
