Im giving it one more episode then I’m done–thought he was the savior -he was the reason I actually liked the show…I like Hurst but ASA made the show

I did! I didn’t see anything tho I searched, paused, looked really closely, etc. The ONLY hope I saw for Asa (my absolute favorite character) is in the thought this could be a killing of his tendency to leave the mountain, and the wolves are dragging him back to the mountain to fulfill his destiny without running when afraid. toss me a bone if you saw more! I won’t watch anymore if Asa doesn’t return, alive, very soon.

Sorry! my reply to a different post ended up here! I meant to reply to your comment with saying I agreed about what I thought was Asa’s destiny, and his death is a deal-breaker for me.

So…turned show off, after waiting so long for new season to come on, totally disgusted by Asa death, lost ALL interest in show, his character made the show interesting, exciting, now it’s lost my interest.

I love this show and was counting down the minutes until the Season 2 premiere but I agree, what are they thinking killing off basically the most important character? And then the upcoming scenes show Lil Foster in jail and I started having flashbacks to Ryan Hurst as Opie in SOA and how that ended :( I will still watch it but they better bring back Asa somehow. I don’t know how it is possible with a wolf ripping out his throat but the writers need to figure it out!

Totally not watching without Asa. Why would they kill off such interesting character!

The end shows Big Foster is still alive, which I already guessed. But the wolf attack on Asa was a very bad!! I hope it turns out to be a nightmare he is having and he is not dead!

I thought about starting a petition. Maybe enough pressure and they Bring Asa back?

Squirrel

I agree with everyone else on here… Tonight was the last episode I’ll be watching bc Asa was the best character & main reason for watching the show! Him & Lil foster were the only 2 worth watching & it’s not worth watching without them both! I enjoyed season 1 but, I’m done with season 2 now. Thanks for 1 good season Outsiders!
