Sam & Blaine – Heroes
Rin says: Ahhhhh this was just the cutest thing. As soon as Blaine started considering going back to the Warblers the one thing I wanted was for the kids at McKinley to band together and show that he already was where he was supposed to be. Similar to how they all tried to help Brittany find herself again, earlier this season. And it was so great to see that they followed through and had it not only just be about all Blaine Blaine Blaine, but all of these kids as an entire unit and how they are all part of something bigger. HOW BEING PART OF SOMETHING SPECIAL MAKES YOU SPECIAL. And that’s how they got through to Blaine in the end. And the entire message of this song, and how it fits into the bigger theme of this episode of ‘Heroes’, worked really well. This worked 10x better than that time they tried to make a whole big hoo-haa last Christmas with Rachel/Presents, because it was so simple and without INYOFACE commentary. And equating being a hero to helping out your local community? I loved it.
AND THEN THE PAINT FIGHT. DEAR LORD, BE CUTER? IDK? CAN YOU?!
Kitty checking her phone. Slaine’s lame high five. PAINTING ARTIE’S BACK. SUGAR/BRITT :X:X:X:X ALL OF THEM GANGING UP ON TINA, and Sam just using a ROLLER on her back. SARTIE?!??!? THEY’RE STILL DOING THAT?! ADORABLE?? YES I WANT IT?!!!
And then Britt/Blaine. Oh my goodness. Yes. If they give us more of that, I will love them forever and ever.
It was also really lovely that Sam sung this song with Blaine to show his support. I love it when friends on this show, romantic or not, sing duets with each other as a sign of love. Whether it be showing them where they belong, or simply letting them know they can have your nose. Either way, I adore it to bits.
AND IT WAS ALSO REALLY FUCKING PRETTY WITH THE ORANGEY-BROWN LIGHTING. AND BLAINE’S RED PANTS.
Sophy says: SO PRETTY AND GLOWY.
So why wasn’t this the big finish? I’m wondering whether part of the reason the ‘Fun’ song didn’t really work for me is because it came after this. I mean, it’s Bowie. And it grew organically from the plot. And the kids were painting each other. And there were kisses and adorableness and it was all about the warm glowiness, visually and thematically. It was the perfect episode ender, and I really don’t understand why they didn’t just stick the Finn/kids scene before it and bring everybody on stage to finish the song with Sam and Blaine. And then they could have ended the episode with the epic stealing back of the trophy. PERFECT.
Speaking of Sam and Blaine, how cute are they? I don’t even. Just. There’s something wonderful about how their clothes contrast. Sam is basically a sexy lumberjack and Blaine is all buttoned up to his chin. I love them so much.
And Sartie! And Britt and Blaine! And Tina/everybody! Sometimes this show really is the best one.
“I can’t do a duet with you.”
“Because my singing voice is crystal-clear and you sort of sound like you’ve got a snot bubble stuck in the back of your throat?”
“I don’t think that… that’s just what everyone’s saying.”
Rin says: Kitty is the best fake-best-friend you never had.
Sophy says: I want her to be my fake-best-friend tbh.
“The Secret Society of Superheroes Club is now in session.”
Rin says: OKAY, OKAY, OKAY, OKAY.
Up until the day of this episode, we were convinced that this was going to be the Thanksgiving episode and it was time for the ever-holy Quinn Fabray to make her long overdue return to Lima. SO WE WERE PRETTY JAZZED. And then we found out it wasn’t the Thanksgiving episode at all, nevermind that it was actually Thanksgiving, cause as if Glee would ever do something that logical!
SO WE WERE PRETTY FUCKING PISSED. TO SAY THE LEAST. I had spent the entire week.. well actually, weeks, looking forward to this episode and having built it all up in my head about how Quinn was finally going to save the day and make things right. And now it wasn’t even happening? It was 314 and the Faberry scene being cut ALL OVER AGAIN. Needless to say, I was very much going into this episode with my arms firmly crossed and I was convinced I wouldn’t like it.
And then the episode started and everyone was in ridiculous costumes and being hilarious and cute and…
I forgave them everything.
Blaine in his costume was almost enough, but then he shouted for ROLL CALL. And. OH MY GOD I WAS NOT PREPARED.
Asian. Persuasion. By now I’m kind of over all of the asian jokes with Tina, BUT THEY DID IT SO PERFECTLY HERE. I MEAN, “My superpower is being the mistress of manipulation.” Christ on a bike, yes please.
AND THEN SAME BEING THE BLONDE CHAMELEON. HIS TERRIBLE IMPRESSIONS. Adorable.
And oh lord, even Teen Jesus was amusing with the way he whipped his dreds around.
And then the best one. Ever.
SUGAR AS SWEET ‘N” SPICY. And her superpower being money. I almost thought I was going to die with the way she said it. It was everything that is good about Sugar, in that one little line. I think that was the exact moment where I had forgiven Glee for deceiving us. I really love Vanessa, and I hope they bring Sugar, even if it’s Sugar/Artie into the spotlight more. I could get behind that pretty strongly. She deserves the screentime more than say, ALL OF THE NEWBIES?!??! K THANK YOU!??!
And then the rest of the crew rolled in, and ARTIE HAS A FRIGGEN BALD CAP WHICH IS BOTH TERRIFYING AND HILARIOUS. And DR Y. WHEELIES. AND BECKY!!!! The greatest. Being Queen Bee, which in itself was really great, but then her power was that she can sting like a bitch. Amazing. I love their characterisation of Becky more than most things on this show. And then the kicker. Brittany, sweet sweet Brittany. The human brain. AND THEN SHE JUST SMIZES. Dead. dead. dead.
A TEXT JUST CAME THROUGH ON MY NIGHTPHONE.
And it’s Asian Persuasion. Once again showing why Tina needs a more prominent role, if only for the way her smile turns into a scowl after Blaine tells her to stop trying to use her powers of manipulation to coax him to getting back with Kurt. Just, genius.
Talk about a very minor character outshining any one of the other new additions this year. Dottie and Kitty need to stay and continue to be over-the-top ridiculously wonderful, and kind of in awe of Tina. AS THEY SHOULD BE. (more on that later)
And then probably one of the better setups of an episode this season, their Nationals trophy has been STOLEN by a blurred face Warbler. AND I CANNOT. So perfect. Like most of this episode with its Superhero theme, I love that they really pushed the satire to the extremes, in all of the exaggeration in the acting and the camera work. It was really well done and made it all the more funny.
AND I HAD TO BUNDLE IN THAT LITTLE TIDBIT SCENE OF TINA STICKING IT TO FINN. Because I love her, and I love that Glee aren’t letting her forget that she was seriously shafted with the whole Rizzo debacle. It foolishly gives me hope that by Glee not letting it go, they are setting up Tina for a big solo/part in Sectionals. At least that’s the vibe I get from all of this, because if they weren’t I imagine they’d just try to shove Tina into the background again and have her forget all about it.
And maybe I just really wanted to include that last cap of Jenna’s face because it is adorable?
Sophy says: I don’t even think there’s any point in me talking about this because Rin has basically covered everything. And, really, it was everything. I just couldn’t stop giggling and squealing and seriously actually bouncing up and down from the very beginning of the episode all the way through to… I don’t know. Probably whenever Marley showed up.
I will just say this whole opening scene was basically as funny as Glee has ever been, and that the emergence of Blaine Warbler as a mega-nerd is probably the best thing that has ever happened to me. (The emergence of Slightly-Deranged-Tina is a close second).
I know Rin’s said it before but…
A TEXT JUST CAME THROUGH ON MY NIGHTPHONE.
AND TINA’S SMILE AT HIM. JUST.
AND THEN DOTTIE CAME IN AND I WAS PRACTICALLY HYPERVENTILATING BECAUSE.
Like Rin said, for reasons of being falsely promised Quinn Fabray for Thanksgiving, we were ready to refuse to be thankful for a single thing this episode had to offer. But then from the very second Blaine banged his darling little mallet… we were goners.
Something I’m especially thankful for: Brittany as the human brain.
“You’re one of the good guys.”
Rin says: I am thrilled that they’re continuing the friendship between these two. And what’s really nice and refreshing about it, is that it’s playing out exactly like Sam said a few episode ago. They can openly talk about Blaine’s relationship with Kurt and not have it be a big deal. Sam treats it with as much care and thoughtfulness as he would any other relationship, and it’s really no big deal. And just by being good friends to each other, they’re breaking down some misconceptions within the walls of McKinley.
As for the scene itself, I really appreciated the further insight into Blaine’s remorse and all of his feeeeelings about what happened. I’m still baffled as to how Darren Criss haters exist, because surely even if you don’t like Blaine, you can appreciate his acting from an objective standpoint? Maybe? No? You will never be convinced that he’s not the scum of the earth? Okay then.
I FOR ONE THINK HE IS EXCEPTIONALLY LOVELY. Especially when he’s telling Sam about how he was feeling like him and Kurt maybe weren’t meant to be together, but right after he cheated he realised they were. Oh my heart, it clenched for Blaine right then. It should go without saying that I don’t approve of cheating, not in the slightest…WHO DOES REALLY? But I also don’t think it’s as simple as cheating = you’re a bad person. It’s probably one of the worst things you could ever do to a loved one, and if I was in Kurt’s position I may never forgive Blaine. Having said that, I’m also a strong believer that people do indeed make horrible decisions and deserve a second chance to earn back your trust. So it’s a tricky situation that can’t really be handled with a blanket-approach, because every situation is different.
Which is why when Blaine says he wants to stop feeling like a bad person, I was happy that Sam pointed out that he wasn’t a bad person and that he was one of the good guys. I think I’ve already touched on that in the past.
They’re also doing really well in keeping Sam as Sam, even when he’s trying to be serious. The ‘villainise’ line was perfect.
Sophy says: You guys! Glee is actually following through on this Sam/Blaine friendship. As in there have been multiple episodes containing multiple friendship scenes between them. I’m floored by this continuity! Now I just wish they’d do this with other combinations. In this episode they had that adorable little text exchange between Tina and Blaine, in which it was implied that they’ve had conversations off-screen about his relationship with Kurt – and who knows, maybe they’ve even had conversations about her relationship with Mike! Gasp!
I’d love to see Tina/Blaine explored, as well as Tina/well… someone else. What I’d like most is for Tina to have either a meaningfully depicted romance or just a solid friendship, as in, not just someone she’s friendly with, but the person you always see whenever Tina’s around and vice versa. She seems like a lonely character to me, and she really shouldn’t be.
But enough about Tina. I’m supposed to be talking about Sam and how sweet he is to Blaine and how it doesn’t matter that he’s lost for words he knows exactly what to say. Poor old Blaine is having a serious case of the Naomis in this episode (“I feel shit and all I can do is feel it.”) He really is big on dwelling and the wringing of hands. Sam, on the other hand, is not. So he just by-passes the rights and wrongs of the situation and goes straight to what Blaine should do next. I loved it when he told Blaine that even if Kurt never forgives him, he needs to forgive himself, because it acknowledged the enormity of what he’d done and the seriousness of the situation by admitting there was a possibility he might never redeem himself in Kurt’s eyes, but then at the same time it gave him permission to start redeeming himself in his own eyes – by seeing himself the way all his friends see him. There is no point in going through life defining ourselves by our least shining moments. And Blaine has beaten himself up enough. I’m sure he’s nowhere near over Kurt. But he needs to get over himself and get out there and live his life.
And yeah, like Rin said, Darren Criss is just a wonderful thing. And I’m glad they chose not to shy away from the cheating by retconning it into a simple kiss, or worse, a misunderstanding. It feels more authentic to just follow through with Blaine’s crippling guilt, no matter how painful it would be.
HIS FACE IN THE FLASHBACKS THOUGH. I DON’T KNOW IF I CAN TAKE IT.
Best ‘Brittany is random’ Moment
Rin says: There was a lot of great Brittany this episode, which I’m so-velly pleased about. BUT THIS HAD TO TAKE THE CAKE. ALL THE CAKES. ALL THE CAKES IN THE WORLD!!! I think the best part is that as soon as Finn pulled out the barbie head, you knew it was from Brittany….and yet? STILL DIED WHEN SHE SAYS ‘YOU’RE WELCOME’ and you’re left in a state of wonderment at how random Brittany is the best. SHE’S JUST SO HAPPY AND PLEASED WITH HERSELF.
I should mention that KIKI/BRITT was also very much appreciated.
Sophy says: Oh my god. OH MY GOD. HER LITTLE FACE. HER. LITTLE. FACE. HOW.
Also, I wouldn’t say it was strictly random so much as just adorable, but “You guys, I don’t smell raspberry hair-gel. Does anybody know where Blaine Warbler is?”
The OG’s (Original Gleeks)
Rin says: “Trust me. That’s how I bagged Teri Hatcher.”
Can we just? I will always have a weird soft spot for Teri Hatcher after all she did for Lois & Clark I TRIED TO WATCH DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES FOR HER, FTLOG!!! And it made me giggle when Puck said that.
PLUS HE’S THE PUCKERMAN SUPERHERO. And it was nice that they actually showed some of LA, considering that it’s just down the road for them.. and it makes perfect sense that Puck would spend his time ripping off tourists to make some cash.
I’m not going to bother going into the actual call itself.
Sophy says: I TRIED TO WATCH DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES ALSO FOR THE SAME LOIS LANE REASON. I failed.
Puck is the best. The phonecall, however, was not the best. I remember after season 3 ended there was much fanfare about how Glee was coming up with this super interesting way to keep all the Original Gleeks around. Well being randomly telephoned for dating advice by a half brother he has had half a conversation with so far is about the least interesting way of “keeping” Puck in the show. In fact, all of the guest spots by the OG’s have been downright lazy in terms of set-up.
But I’ll take it. I’ll take my crumbs. I’ll sit in the corner and eat them. One by one.
Rophy Says No!
Rin says: HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH I DON’T GIVE A FUCK.
CRY ALL YOU WANT.
His face is so stupid.
But come on now. I don’t want to go into too much depth, because I don’t think this plotline deserves it. NOR THE AMOUNT OF BORING-ASS SCREENTIME THEY GAVE HIM WHILE WITH THE TEACHER.
The biggest problem I have with this is that I really don’t care about Ryder. This is his third episode and suddenly we’re supposed to care because woe, he has dyslexia? Talk about a cheap grab for the audience. Plus, I’m sorry boy from Glee Project, and I imagine it’d be hard for anyone being thrust onto a show and expected to pull this shit off, but it just doesn’t work. None of it does, and it just reads as some lame sob story — and I like to think I’m a pretty compassionate person. BUT GOD. WE DON’T EVEN KNOW YOU AND WE DON’T WANT TO GET TO KNOW YOU.
And Ryder and Marley both having disorders? Really?
IS OPRAH WRITING THE SHOW? LOOK UNDER YOUR CHAIRS!!!
YOU GET A DISORDER!! YOU GET A DISORDER!! YOU GET A DISORDER!!
Sophy says: AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH OH GOD. MATCHING DISORDERS. OPRAH. UNDER THE SEAT.
Rin, sometimes you are just glorious.
But seriously, this was the worst. I mean, it was the actual worst. I may hate this guy even more than Marley, and believe me, that is nothing for Marley to get excited about.
I don’t think there’s much point in my even discussing this shit – that’s how strongly I feel. Really, I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about it, but they’re thoughts I’d like to forget and feelings I never want to feel again.
So I’ll just say that Ryder’s face is even stupider than usual when it’s all cry-faced. And that Sam called and he wants his plotline back.
EXCEPT HE REALLY, REALLY DOESN’T, BECAUSE IT’S THE WORST.
Rin says: Okay. I’m not quite sure what they were trying to achieve with this? Except for making Marley out to be some kind of floozy?
Even if I don’t care about his dyslexia, if the person I liked and had made plans with told me they had to reschedule because they’re having their first big dyslexia specialist appointment… WELL I WOULDN’T BE ALL, ‘AWWW BUT I WANTED TO GO OUT WITH YOU :(‘ … you would perhaps be a little supportive? MAYBE?!
God, Marley can’t even get Marley-Sue part of her character right.
She’s way too stupid? And not even in a remotely cute floppy way?
Sophy says: I believe I mentioned last week that Marley was the stupidest person alive. In case there was any doubt, I was right. This was honestly one of the most laughably poorly written and acted scenes in Glee history. It made Mercedes throwing the rock through Kurt’s windshield look organic and poignant.
And I’m sure Marley doesn’t mean to be a totally self-absorbed user bitch, because let’s face it, she’s ~Maaaaarley, but unless that was her express intention in this scene, then there is no other alternative but for everybody on this show and all viewers to sing it with me right now: She is the stupidest person alive.
Meanwhile I’m going to say it again. I find it ludicrous that Ryder and Jake are both head over heels for this mousy little twit. Okay, Ryder I can understand, just because he is the lamest douchebag to ever lame, douche or bag, but Jake? There is actually hope for him. If the show starts transferring his affections to someone – ANYONE – else. And soon.
He also needs to never speak to her mum again, because the faux-compliment on her looks bordered on the insulting.
And my heart really was not warmed by the Jake/Ryder interaction. Ryder is about as bad for Jake as Marley is. He needs to get away from them both immediately. And I’m not saying he has to spend all his time with that (fabulous) headcase Kitty! He could actually bond with the other Glee club members. I don’t remember the juniors and the seniors being this segregated in seasons 1 – 3, and okay, that’s because they hadn’t decided who was a junior and who was a senior yet, but STILL.
JAKE/TINA PLEASE. GIVE IT TO ME, SHOW.
Rin says: Yes, we feel that strongly about it that it deserved it’s own special mention. Seriously though, Glee, what the fuck? How dare you?! Nothing will ever compare? May you burn in hell for even implying it?
And I hated how our kids didn’t even get moments to shine, i.e. Artie, Brittany, Tina (barely), Sam.. LIKE HOW DARE THEY. ARTIE AND TINA WERE IN THE ORIGINAL DON’T STOP BELIEVING, AND THEY GET NEXT TO NOTHING HERE? GO FUCK YOURSELVES.
Also, they shouldn’t have attempted Fun again without all of the old cast. They were never going to get anywhere close with Ryder and Marley involved.
And no. This isn’t a NEW New Directions. It’s a Shell-Of-Its-Former-Self-Directions.
ALSO A MAJOR NO: Where was Unique?
Sophy says: WHERE WAS UNIQUE IS RIGHT.
And yeah, the red shirts were a bridge too far. Nothing compares to that original performance, and it was really silly to try.
Congratulations! We didn’t hate you?
“I’m Hunter Clarington, I am the new captain of the Warblers, and I’m not even remotely bi-curious.”
Rin says: Now see? This is how you bring in a new character. You have them be HILARIOUS and oozing with charisma, and play the role they were given to a tee and own it. This guy clearly knew who he was supposed to be, the villain and the hammiest of villains at that. HE TURNED AROUND IN HIS LEATHER CHAIR WHILE STROKING A CAT. Greatest.
And then the LAUGH HE DOES. Oh my god, it was fantastic. I love that he’s the new captain too, and I was also kind of happy to see Sebastian back?
As well as the Warblers? And considering how I was angry at them forever since 314, and their screenhogging ways, it was quite the surprise. With the shitstorm of Marley and Ryder, and to an extent Jake, the Warblers felt like…. home?
IDEK. BUT I WAS HAPPY TO SEE THEM AND THEN WHEN BLAINE COULDN’T RESIST SINGING WITH THEM AND JUST BURST INTO SONG. And they had their lamest of lame dance moves and AHAHAH. I definitely had missed them. Which is saying something about the current state of the Glee.
ALSO. “I hear they even call you Blaine Warbler.”
Sophy says: OH MY GOD THIS GUY IS WONDERFUL. More of him please.
“And I’m not even remotely bi-curious.” LOL. So much better than Brody’s “I’m straight, by the way.”
Everything about him was perfect, right down to his Doctor Claw cat. And his delivery of “I hear they even call you Blaine Warbler,” was phenomenal.
This guy is all the reasons Marley and Ryder should not be on the show.
Head In Hands
Rin says: I spent this entire scene giggling with delight, and I adore Glee for being extra cheeky with their BLAM! and SLAINE! titles.
But the most adorable part wasn’t even the running away in costumes with the trophy. It was afterwards when Sam is recounting the story to the Glee club with..
“Guys, it was epic. Dalton was like Death Star meets Mordor meets Temple of Doom. I mean, I might be exaggerating, but probably not.”
‘Probably not,’ was the cutest of cute. Ah Sam, I am loving you so much this season.
Sophy says: I didn’t even realize until now that “SLAINE!” was a play on the fact that “BLAM!” just happens to be their shipper name round the other way. Like, I thought they were just randomly putting their shipper name up there with a Blam sound before it. And it was already awesome enough, but now it’s just… pure genius.
THAT’S ME. ALWAYS A LITTLE LATE TO THE PARTY.
“It’s a superhero utility belt cleverly disguised as a fanny pack.”
Rin says: This was really sweet, and the reason why I can’t hate Finn as the leader of Glee Club. It is so refreshing to see him throw himself into something that makes some sense, and to see that he’s trying really hard to make it work. He is showing his commitment to these kids, even if he’s not really excelling at it right now, but the fact that he’s trying is enough. And the kids show him that by giving him a SUPERHERO UTILITY BELT THAT IS A FANNYPACK (READ: BUMBAG) THAT IS SO LAME AND AMAZING AND I CAN’T. <3
And can we spend a little time admiring how Tina disappears when she goes to clip on the bag for Finn? SO TINY.
I guess what I like about the whole thing is that it’s so appropriately high school. The gifts themselves are a bit lame and cheesy, but it really is the thought that counts — made all the more apparent when Finn has new confidence and promises to never let them down. And I’m sure Finn-haters hated all of this and are once again rolling their eyes at how every episode is about boosting Finn up as the hero. But I just don’t see it that way, because we’ve had our major problems with the character over the years. That’s for sure. But to me this was as simple as a bunch of friends looking out for another friend and showing their support. And I don’t feel like they’re purposely trying to tug at our heartstrings… if it wasn’t for the fact that they had spent the majority of last season showing us that Finn had no direction in life and couldn’t find his place? Sure, maybe this would be over the top and contrived. But this has been developing.. and when he finally finds his place you see him apply himself and it’s great, but he still struggles because it’s new (and because he’s Finn), and in the end it’s his friends and their encouragement which makes him feel at ease. I’m all for it.
I just wished they took such care as they’re doing with Finn, Sam, Blaine and Britt, and do the same unto Tina and Artie. I’m sure there is a lot of time we can take away from the newbies and apply it to them. Maybe all of Marley and Ryder’s time? Perhaps?
Sophy says: I really loved this… but I do feel that the gang should have taken a moment to remember Ken Tanaka.
SERIOUSLY BUT A FANNY PACK. BEST.
I think the great thing about this scene is that it’s so clearly about the kids giving Finn a boost rather than them fawning over him. He’s been kind of a mess this week and they definitely noticed – the markers are proof of that – as was the healthy amount of fun they were all making of him throughout the episode. But I loved the irony of the students showing the teacher the way forward, rather than the other way around. I mean, a few months ago half of these kids were Finn’s classmates, so it was always bound to be an unconventional leadership.
So they gave Finn his utility belt and the knowledge along with it that they were still his friends and that they had confidence in him as a teacher. And then Blaine looked around the room and saw all of these amazing people that he’s staying at McKinley about, and that’s what he was talking about when he reminded Finn that he was a uniter of friends. Not that Finn had helped them all to bond or fixed his life or anything like that. But simply that in Will’s absence Finn is the official figurehead of a group that he has discovered means more to him than just high notes and jazz hands.
And when Finn said he would never let them down, it was because he was grateful for being allowed to represent that for them.
AND IT WAS SWEET. END OF STORY.
Rin says: I am shipping it.
LOOK AT KITTY GENUINELY SMILING AT TINA. If they explore a fierce friendship between these two, I will be forever grateful. It would be magical. I’m really not kidding though. Tina needs to develop some actual friendships, and so does Kitty. They would contrast each other so well, and make a nice pair of unlikely friendship friends. WHICH IS MUCH MORE INTERESTING THAN KITTY/MARLEY. It’d also be really fucking nice for Tina to get some bonding screentime with someone other than Mike, you know?
Sophy says: You know how I mentioned that Tina needs a BFF? I was penciling in Unique for that role, but then I saw this and decided Kitty/Tina would be kind of the best. Think about it. The two of them could bond together over their mutual hatred of Marley Sue for taking all the parts and all the men. And then they could fight over who gets Dottie on weekends.
I NEED IT TO BE A THING.
Sweet ‘n’ Spicy twirls
Rin says: We couldn’t do this gleecap without mentioning this little bit of background magic from Sugar. One twirl would of gained her a brief mention.
It was the second twirl in the opposing direction that got her screencaps.
Sophy says: I LOVE HER I LOVE HER I LOVE HER.
When Quinn comes back they can twirl together.
Rin says: This is exactly what I want to do every single time Ryder’s face is onscreen.
Sometimes when he’s offscreen too?
Sophy says: The moment Jake’s fist collided with Ryder’s face was the only good thing about this nightmare of a performance.
Rin says: AND TO MAKE IT EVEN, and prove how much Jake/Kitty > Marley/Ryder.
I like that Kitty’s entire ‘friendship’ with Marley is fake. But I’m pretty sure they’re going to turn it all around and have Kitty start singing Marley praises about how much of a better person she is than her.
Oh god, that’ll be the day that I won’t be able to keep my lunch down.
Sophy says: If the show never ever has Kitty like Marley, I will be so impressed. But I fear that she will eventually be forced to, along with everybody else.
And, like, even if Kitty was redeemed, why on earth would she like Marley? This bitch picked ‘Wall Flower’ as her superhero name because that’s what she sees when she looks in the mirror. Seriously. SERIOUSLY.
Whereas Kitty does stuff like this:
Quinn Glory Shot
New Haven Union Station
Rin says: Ridiculous right?
As if Quinn would ever wait an entire week before contacting the authorities and demanding a helicopter escort.
Sophy says: She would have sent up a flare after 48 hours.
