I just want to reiterate that the reason for this thread is to talk about the companions and how we see them. This is why I titled it "Companions mixed fan base". There is no right or wrong OPINION about any companion. You can believe what you want but also be open minded to someone else's opinion. There is no reason to be dismissive of someone's opinion. We can ask each other why we think a certain way and maybe even to elaborate but it should not go farther than that. To the point where we have to seek evidence to an opinion, speculation or theory.
Let me write the definition of those words:
Opinion- a view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge
Speculation- the forming of a theory or conjecture without firm evidence
Theory- an idea used to account for a situation or justify a course of action
Neither of those require evidence. That's the fun part of it.
