Before we get started into this particular “Longmire” article, let’s start by wishing everyone out there a happy holidays! Hopefully you’re off enjoying the day, though it may be a little early to rack open a beer in Walt’s honor.
This article is the latest in our endgame article series, where we focus specifically on a single character within the show’s larger ensemble and do our best in order to project what exactly would be the best ending for them. For Katee Sackhoff’s Vic (who is the focus of this particular article), this question is even more challenging just because of how much her story has changed over the years. We’ve seen her go through divorce, have her life on the line, and at times seemingly fall for Walt. She’s been through a lot, and when we last saw her she was living in a trailer park and expecting a child. We have our hopes for how her story will end, but there’s no guarantee of anything.
Get her own house – While seeing Vic’s positive attitude remain that way in the midst of a whole lot of adversity is pretty darn admirable, at the same exact time we do think that it would be good for her to make a little bit of progress in terms of her bank account after losing almost everything. Her getting a house would symbolize her having something that is purely her own, and a sign that she is firmly in control of her destiny.
Let someone at work in on her secret – Even if Walt’s own job status remains up in the air moving forward thanks to Barlow Connally, at the same time we do think it would do her some good to let some more people in on what is going on in her life. While she will need a maternity leave for her baby, at the same time who’s going to be rude or mistreat her with this group? It’s hard to see it.
Finally be 100% upfront with Walt about her feelings – What we’ve learned about Walt over the years is that he is not the sort of man to pick up on a whole lot of context cues. If you don’t spell it out to him, especially when it comes to romance, there’s a pretty good chance that he is is not going to get it.
Establish even more roots – Maybe it’s because we know her backstory, but Vic’s always felt a little bit like an outsider, or a stranger within this world. We’d love to finally have her be even more immersed in the community, and to have her spend more time with the supporting characters and hang out at the Red Pony even more than she has. The more you can get Sackhoff working with a wide array of people, the happier that we are ultimately going to be.
