In theory I don’t have a problem with them bringing Art back since she’s a lot (a lot) more charismatic and fun to watch than any of the other finalists. The manner in which they went about it, however, was bizarre. By not explaining why she was brought back, they’ve robbed her of a satisfying arc and neutralised her as a threat - she’s essentially been out of the competition since her return, like Roxxy at the end of her AS2 run. And by refusing to give us any indication about how Art herself feels about her initial flopping and then second chance they’ve also robbed her of any storyline potential - she’s inhabiting this weird comic relief role where the other girls joke about her presence but Art appears to have no thoughts on her own weird arc at all! It’s whiplash inducing to go from the passionate, devastated queen of her elimination episode to the happy-to-be-there background character she is now, in the space of like, one episode. To add to the disorientation, you have Karen inhabiting a pretty safe, front runner niche this whole time despite the fact there is nothing she does that Art can’t do much better. It’s mystifying that production chose the former over the latter as their sacred cow.
