Higgins further went on to explain on Rangerboard in response to fans comments about his Tommy comment:

Yeah. Actually, I made that crack about Tommy clearly being the best ranger as a joke. Unfortunately, sarcasm doesn’t seem to translate that well in text ha

I’m telling a serialized story. I’ll be focusing on everyone. Don’t worry
