Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

  • Elena Doesn't Tell Dom About His Son ('The Fate of the Furious') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#4) Elena Doesn't Tell Dom About His Son ('The Fate of the Furious')

    Dom and Elena hook up at the end of Fast 5, then part ways in Fast 6 after Dom learns Letty is still alive. In Fate of the Furious, Elena says she found out she was pregnant around the same time, and decided not to share the news with Dom until after he and Letty got back from their honeymoon. Cipher nixes that plan when she abducts them.

    Alright, let's rewind for a second. If Dom's baby is around six months old, as the child actor who portrays him is, and Elena had a nine-month pregnancy, that means she's been sitting on this secret for 15 months. Even if Elena is the most saintly and understanding ex-girlfriend on Earth, and would rather not harsh Dom and Letty's buzz with something as consequential as, y'know, bringing a human being into the world, there's one very good reason she should have told Dom right away: People try to attack him and his "family" all the time. Elena and her baby get snatched by Cipher because of course they would be.

    Dom, being a multi-millionaire and freelance government agent, would have the resources to protect them - if he knew. Also, if he knew, he could have saved Elena six months of awkwardly telling people she's waiting for her baby daddy to give the kid a first name.

  • Dom Abandons Letty ('Fast & Furious') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#5) Dom Abandons Letty ('Fast & Furious')

    After a job to swipe oil from a tanker truck goes explosively pear shaped, Dom decides it's time to stop putting his loved ones in danger. Yet, after kindly telling his buddies to pack up and go home, Dom decides the best way to protect Letty is to take off without saying a word and leave her a few thousand bucks on the nightstand. Yikes.

    Dom abandoning Letty is, by itself, a crummy thing to do to a person who left a comfortable, law-abiding existence in California, USA, to go be with the love of her life. (Letty knew what she was getting into when she tracked you down, Dom. She literally says, "Ride or die!") Yet it's the long-term consequence of this abandonment that really twists the knife.

    In hopes of clearing Dom's record, Letty agrees to go undercover for Brian, which leads to a series of extremely unfortunate events for the whole crew over multiple installments in the franchise. Dom's decision becomes even harsher in hindsight when we discover, in Fast 7, that he married Letty at some point in the past. This means Dom didn't just abandon his long-time lover in Fast & Furious, he walked out on his wife. Double yikes.

  • Sean Goes On A Date With A Yakuza's Girlfriend ('The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#6) Sean Goes On A Date With A Yakuza's Girlfriend ('The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift')

    Technically, Takashi 'DK' Kamata isn't a full yakuza, and technically, Sean and Neela were just hanging out, but c'mon. We know what's up! 

    DK's uncle is a bonafide yakuza, which makes DK dangerous by association, and he isn't shy about using his underworld connection to terrorize anybody he doesn't like. Sean Boswell may be a naive gaijin, and an impulsive street racer to boot, but even he should understand that spending some alone time with DK's lady is a big no no.

  • Deckard Shaw Wildly Overreacts To His Brother's Fate ('Furious 7') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#7) Deckard Shaw Wildly Overreacts To His Brother's Fate ('Furious 7')

    In the Fast saga, family is everything, so it makes sense that Deckard Shaw would want revenge on Dom for kicking his little brother out of a plane. Put that way, it almost sounds like Dom deserves it, but context is key.

    First of all, Owen Shaw is no innocent man. He's a mercenary responsible for taking the lives of several people and causing a considerable amount of collateral damage. He knew the risks inherent to his line of work, and so did Deckard. Second of all, while Owen was indeed booted from a plane and badly wounded, he wasn't slain outright. He's seen in the opening of Furious 7 in what appears to be a coma, and in the next movie he's not only walking around but healthy enough to carry out a military strike on Cipher's plane.

    So, knowing that Owen is, essentially, fine, what does Deckard do? He goes to Tokyo and crashes his car into Han's, ostensibly ending Han's life. He then blows up Dom's house and nearly takes out Mia, her unborn child, Brian, and their son. After that, he proceeds to track Dom and his crew around the world, blowing up government agents left and right, and even teams up with a straight-up terrorist to wipe everybody out.

    But he and Dom have a beer at the end of Fast 8, so apparently they're cool now.

  • Whatever's Going On With Brian And Monica ('2 Fast 2 Furious') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#9) Whatever's Going On With Brian And Monica ('2 Fast 2 Furious')

    The Fast saga could really use more Monica Fuentes, the undercover US Customs Agent who gathered intelligence on Carter Verone and kept Brian and Roman alive in 2 Fast 2 Furious.

    Here's the weird thing, though: It is never clearly established what the relationship between Monica and Brian is. Throughout the film, it seems like something's going on between them, and a strong argument can be made that the two have met prior to their introduction in the film's opening. It's possible that Monica and Brian are just super flirty, but it kind of feels like these characters have definitely hooked up before. That would at least explain why they share a kiss near the end of the film without remarking on it at all.

    Regardless, whether the two have a thing going on or they're just really into the idea, the fact remains that Monica is in an incredibly precarious position. She's the only government agent to last in Verone's employ, and a single slip up could scuttle the whole operation and put her life in jeopardy. Brian knows that better than anyone, and yet he and Monica continue to make eyes at each other over Verone's shoulder and generally flirt like teenagers. 

  • Brian Sneaks Back Into The US ('Fast & Furious 6') on Random Dumbest Decisions In The ‘Fast And Furious’ Saga

    (#8) Brian Sneaks Back Into The US ('Fast & Furious 6')

    Here's a situation we can all relate to: Have you ever been an internationally-wanted criminal, and suddenly discovered that one of the most important people in your life, who you thought was dead, wasn't dead? You'd probably want to know what happened to her, and why she doesn't seem to remember you, and also why she's working for an evil British dude. 

    This is the situation Brian and Dom find themselves in when they discover Letty is still alive and working for Owen Shaw. Brian, feeling responsible for Letty's fate after Fast 4, stops the plot of the movie cold to go on a highly dangerous side quest to America. 

    The logistics of how Brian pulls this off are never explained. He's been on the lam for two whole movies, has a wife and child overseas, and puts his entire mission and crew at risk, only to end up with a few crumbs of information that Dom dismisses immediately.
