- What is that?
- I’m just cataloguing all my footage that’s from our time at Maternity. It’s from two years ago.
#i didn’t notice it on the 1st watch but he’s smiling at her in that 3rd gif#sweet jesus#still though bill’s ass needs to apologize#i’m surprised virginia is the one that caved
I think this is part of what bothered me about the episode on first watch—Bill is horrible, horrible, horrible to Gini and she offers herself up anyway. It’s as if there are mental jumps she’s making that we aren’t quite a part of. When she says that what they have can’t be undone, though, that seems to be the clincher—she can get mad at him, push him, and walk away, but she’s carefully portrayed as never being enraged enough to give him a “Reason You Suck” speech. Plus, this is the only job she’s qualified for and willing to do, at this stage. Her livelihood and future are bound up in this; she doesn’t have other good options.
Gini can see through the bullshit, and knows that none of it is really real when he says truly nasty shit to her (even though it hurts), but she realizes at some point that if they’re going to go back to the way things were, she can’t expect an apology. And that feels like surrender, but Gini’s the one who’s brave enough to be proactive instead of passive-aggressive.
I’d hazard a guess that it’s all meant to be an extension of their power struggle, but it still left me feeling very unsettled last night.
Hey I know the writers of this show don't like long meaningless sex scenes but I'm really wanting to see along sexy love scene with my two main characters Bill and Gini! This impotence of Bills is really pissing me off. If you have any way of letting the writers of the show know this please tell them we need to see more Bill and Gini loving and passionate kissing. Just sayin!
I KNOW, RIGHT? I feel you, anon. It is true, the writers of this show don’t like gratuitous sex scenes, as they have stated many times and PAINFULLY SHOWED US last night:
DAMN. Was a long, explicit scene of Bill going down on Gini too much to ask for?
Oh,anon, if only I had a way of letting the writers know anything… I would tell them about the wonderful, marvelous job they have done ruining my life. In a good way.
I’m choosing to believe that the writers are being meta about Bill’s condition by making the audience feel the same sense of frustration.
And then that filthy bastard, Snape went whoring around with the office skank and left Trelawney all heart broken and shit. Listening to Joni Mitchell while that other slut hoe was parading around with her new necklace that Mr. Bean wanted to gift wrap oh so extravagantly with sprigs of rosemary and shit.
