Reggie is a character who tends to operate on instinct. He wants to be logical and intelligent in his actions, but his great flaw is that in the moment he just does whatever his emotions guide him to. He wants to be successful, to be recognized for his skills, and deep down he wants to be loved as he is. The conflict he causes and is inflicted upon him often comes from not quite understanding how to get what he wants and lack of self confidence that hides itself behind arrogance. He cares about Maddison now, even though he doesn’t know exactly how to manifest it. Their earlier interaction from this arc might be seen as cruel, but from his perspective he was trying to treat her with respect in the way he understands respect. Now he wants to be helpful, even though this is probably beyond his abilities. If he can get out of his own way it might not be beyond the abilities of people who might accept a genuine plea for help. I guess we’ll see how it goes.
