Every Ranger Ever → Katherine “Kat” Hillard / 2nd Pink Mighty Morphin’ Ranger
↳ I promise Kimberly, from the bottom of my heart, that I will do everything I can to carry on as you would.
Including stealing your boyfriend. I promise.
Katherine did not steal anybody’s boyfriend. Kim broke up with Tommy via letter in a case of really bad and out of character writing. And after this? Kat was there for Tommy, AS A FRIEND. Whatever feelings she had for him, she didn’t immediately jump him like some people assume.
In fact, in the episode “There’s No Business Like Snow Business”, Kat actually set Tommy up on a date with a woman he had shown interest in on a ski trip. Tommy had screwed it up with the girl because he had to run off to fight a monster as usual, and what did Kat do? Call the woman up, vouch for Tommy, and made sure that Tommy had a second chance with her. Yeah, it didn’t work out, but that wasn’t anybody’s fault, it was just bad luck. The point is, Kat did nothing wrong, and she didn’t “steal” Tommy. Stealing someone’s boyfriend usually means you’re involved with him while he’s already in a relationship. Tommy and Kim were broken up.
The fact of the matter is Amy Jo Johnson wanted to leave the show. If she had stayed, Kat would’ve never been introduced, and her and Tommy wouldn’t have broken up in the first place. After Kim did leave though, they still wanted Tommy in a relationship, so they tried to force Tommy/Kat relationship, which just didn’t work. That does not make Kat a bad person though. She was compassionate, she was a vital asset to the team for three seasons, and she took on the duty of saving the world because she knew it was the right thing to do.
- Kat did NOT steal Tommy
- The whole relationship was the fault of bad writing, not Kat as a character
- Kat didn’t immediately swoop in on Tommy after the break up
- Kat just needs to stop getting shit from the fandom. I don’t see anybody being angry with Tommy about getting over Kim and being with another girl.
Stop the Kat hate, it’s bullshit
It was a joke lol I love kat.
