Of Connor's stupidity and other stuff.
Hi fellow Jonnor shippers! First of all I want to say a few things.
-I do not have anything against Connor and I’m not attacking him in any way, his my baby, my Con-con, the title is just a joke related to the post.
-Everything I say here is MY OPINION and you can disagree with it. I would like all of you to comment and tell me your opinions on everything.
-This is a post about JONNOR, if you don’t like them for so reason (something I can’t understand) or you are more interested in other storylines, I may do a post about them in the future. If you are a fangirl trash like me you will probably like this, tho.
-This post will contain MASSIVE spoilers of last night’s episode (2x18: Now hear this) and various promos and clips from next week’s episode (2x19: Justify the means)
-THIS POST WILL BE LONG AF. So I suggest you take some snacks, find a comfortable position and enjoy the ride;)
Let’s get started:)
Okay, so let’s start with the first scene. One we all have seen at least twice (or a hundred times if you’re like me) and we all kind of hate. Why? Well…
Make out scene. Between Connor and Daria. It’s as bad as it sounds. But it’s even worse when you see Jude’s face. I mean, can you imagine your best friend kissing another girl in your face when just a few weeks ago he was holding your hand at the movies? Not cool.
Taylor saves the day (as usual) interrumping the couple (I think?) and talking about the fair. Daria is as fast as someone can be saying that her and Connor can’t go because they’re going somewhere else. Then Connor talks and he wants to go to the fair with everyone! Hmmm… I wonder why (coughcoughjudicorncoughcough).
So yeah, Daria doesn’t like it and blah blah. But then Jude interrups the conversation by saying that he has “family plans”, they change the plans to Sunday and Jude says that they’re going camping (Nice one, judicorn, nice one). Connor asks if they didn’t just go camping and Jude loses it. Shouts: We’re going again! and Sorry!
Then he leaves.
So it’s pretty obvious that Jude doesn’t want to be with Connor. And tbh, that’s kinda sad because like… They’ve been friends since the very beggining. They’ve always been best friends. Connor was the person Jude could rely on when everyone else wasn’t there. And now that’s just kind of… gone. It’s sad. Anyway, moving on. I liked how Jude said sorry to Taylor. Not Daria, not Connor, but Taylor. Because she’s the only one who’s actually not making him sad or uncomfortable.
Taylor is something I want to talk about deeply but I’ll do that later. Now I want to talk about the awesome next scene.
What the hell is Connor’s dad thinking? If this was a fanfic everyone would be like: Connor’s dad would NEVER do that. But here we are… In all honesty, the more I watch the more I believe he’s an homophobe.
Anyway, Lena says the news and boy, Jude does not look happy. His face is priceless in this scene. But probably the thing that made this scene one of my favourites in the episode is Connor’s line:
-What happened to your family camping trip?
Yeaaah aboout that. Judicorn was just trying to avoid you but don’t take it personally, you’re just being kind of a dick.
Not really. But still. Amazing scene.
Now the next one makes me really angry because argh.
-Connor, it is very nice to have you, it’s been a long time since you spend the night.
I wonder why. But cool, everything cool. Until…
-Not long enough. I got an idea, why don’t you guys sleep in a tent in the backyard and you guys can pretend your camping.
So I was going to say that Jesus was being a dick, but I just realised that he doesn’t want more people in his room. Still, not cool, Jesus. You made them VEEEEERY uncomfortable. Very.
VIDEO GAME TIME! I love this scene with all my heart and soul. First we have Jude being like: He’s sleeping here, doesn’t mean we have to talk to each other that much, right?
But Connor and all his charm (he has a fucking lot) go and talk and laugh like everything’s okay and Jude’s very shocked. So Connor starts explaining how to beat the dragon and Jude keeps glancing at him (it made my heart melt) and then he leans closer to Connor. I actually don’t know what to think about that because it was cute as hell, yes, but what does it mean? We could just say that Jude wanted to see the screen better… If you want a deeper meaning we could say that Jude’s enjoying his best friend in the world while he can, since hasn’t been able to do that in a while and is very afraid to losing it again. I’m going with the second one.
So that marks the start of the cute friendship scenes which end very fast.
With the scene in the backyard. Now this was a beautiful scene. I think it’s the first time we’ve seen them do something together outside school that is not potentially romantic or problematic (a lot of scenes are problematic), and it’s the cutest thing ever. Let’s be honest.
So they play, they laugh, they’re on the ground (love eyes? where? I didn’t notice -said no one, ever) and then Daria texts. Now I don’t like Daria, and it’s not because she’s in the way of Jonnor (well, that too) but because I just think she thinks she knows everything and it’s so mature and blah blah. But I kind of like that she always wants to include Jude, I’m not sure why, but it’s good. Anyway, back to the scene. What the hell is Connor thinking?
-Daria wants to know if you wanna come over.
+Well… Do you?
-What else is there to do?
Ahm… I don’t know… MAYBE HANG OUT WITH YOUR BEST FRIEND AND POSSIBLE (confirmed by now tbh) LOVE INTEREST?
+You should go then. If you want to.
Boy, Jude is noot happy. Can we blame him tho?
-No, it’s fine, we don’t have to.
So nowww you say that, huh?
+Whatever. Just go.
So yeah, we know by the tone that Connor’s everything but “whatever” to Jude but hey, if it works, it works.
Now, it’s been a journey. A long and painful journey. I mean, it’s been a season and three quarters. You could barely do a whole episode with all the Jonnor scenes but we are finally here. The moment we’ve all been waiting for.
*Music starts to play*
Apparently the music says something about confusion and stuff. The writers, always connecting the music with the scene.
-Hey um… I texted Daria back and… I told her I’m just gonna stay here.
+It’s not nice to lead people on…
I meaaan… That is way too true. Connor has been really doing some shitty things lately ( I mean, I understand why he does them and that he’s confused and everything but let’s get real. Those things end friendships) so.. yeah. Jude’s death glare is the best thing, too LOL Hayden’s facial expressions in this episode are great.
-Okay… Well, I’m not
Great, Connor’s charm again. I don’t know how someone can resist it, tbh. But Jude’s preeeetty mad right now so… Not gonna work this time, Con-con. Now I get that Connor was just like:
Because Jude’s a fucking angel and he’s used to Jude always forgiving him no matter how much he messes up. I can understand that.
He really should have stopped. Aaaand… Jude kicks him. I’m really sorry for what I’m about to say but this is AMAZING. It’s funny, it’s unexpected and it’s just great. It expresses Jude’s feelings perfectly.
-Are you okay? I didn’t… I didn’t mean to kick you that hard.
But Jude still is the angel we all know and love. He’s mad (he has his reasons), Connor’s really hurt his feelings, but he really cares about him and hates seeing him suffer.
+Why did you kick me at all?
You’re fucking with me, right? Con-con, I really love you. But you’re stupid.
-You kissed me, remember? In the tent?
eXCUSE ME WHILE I HAVE A HEART ATTACK BECAUSE THAT IS CONFIRMATION. FUCKING CONFIRMATION THAT WE ALL WERE RIGHT AND JUDE WAS LYING SINCE THE BEGGINING OF THE FUCKING TENT STORYLINE. AMAZING!
-And then at the movie theatre you held my hand!
We remember, Judicorn. The fandom almost broke tumblr that week. Right now I get kinda scared because it looks like Connor’s gonna have an anxiety attack.
-And now all day you’ve been… I just, I don’t get this. I don’t get you.
This makes me realise how confused they both are. They barely know what they’re feeling inside, they don’t get anything. They don’t know if they’re gay or not. Connor’s wondering if he likes girls or Jude or what and Jude just hates seeing them together and… It’s just complicated. Very.
And every complicated scene… Ends with a kiss. The kiss doesn’t help to solve the problem but it happens. And this kiss is so powerful. It’s not only the kiss that made history (literally. SO proud of The Foster’s fam on this one) but it’s also one of the most meaningful and full of emotion kisses I’ve ever seen on TV. Hayden and Gavin never cease to surprise me and they did SUCH a good job with the kiss. It’s not a make out session, it’s not passionate or… anything like that, it’s short, weird, pure… It’s everything I wanted it to be and more.
Now a lot of people have been talking about how Jude pulled away after a few seconds. But in all honesty, can you blame him? This is not a confession scene, they didn’t just say they love each other and that they are gonna be together. They were fighting (well, Jude was yelling, but still), about Connor sending hints BUT being with a girl at the same time. Jude can’t kiss him with everything he has because Connor can’t either. They have so much to figure out yet.
And… that’s all. On the episode part, that is. Now I warn you, if you are not going to watch any of the clips for the next episode DO NOT READ THIS PART. You’ve been warned.
The episode that will probably kill me emotionally.
So let’s start with the promo, and since I’m only talking about Jonnor’s storyline I’m gonna skip till the ending.
First of all, everyone’s talking about how sneaking into someone’s house is SO out of character for both Jude and Connor, even for the girls. I don’t know who had this amazing (stupid) idea, but I will bet my arm Jude’s only going because of Connor. Love makes us do stupid things. AND THIS IS WITHOUT ANY DOUBT ONE OF THE MOST STUPID THINGS I’VE EVER SEEN. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU FOUR THINKING, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD?
… Well, at least Jude has the decency to say that it is a bad idea. But still.
Now the drinking thing… It had to happen. Jude’s growing up, he’s starting to date people (or at least trying), he’s starting to drink… I just hope he’s like Callie and not like Mariana with alcohol.
And the trouble starts, someone shouts. Bottle to the floor. Running. Gunshot.
A FUCKING GUNSHOT! WHY DOES THIS SHOW ALWAYS WANT TO SHOOT SOMEONE, WHY?
So… there’s a lot of theories about the question everyone has in their heads.
Who’s getting shot?
I was talking about this with natsumekuroorigami the other day and I told him that I felt like somebody was going to be severly injured. Well here we are. Gut feeling, apparently it works. So… who is it gonna be? Is it Daria? Is it Taylor? Connor? Jude?
I don’t know. But I’ve come to the conclusion that the whole point of the gunshot it making drama so here’s my theories:
-Jude or Connor (only one of them) gets shot and sent to the hospital and the other freaks out. A lot. There’ll be an inevitable fight between Lena and Stef and Connor’s parent because I can imagine Connor’s dad being like: It’s all Jude’s fault and blah blah.
-Daria or Taylor get shot. Now them being in the hospital wouldn’t create that much drama unless they die. So… yeah, that.
-Nobody gets shot, but they’re so close to it that everyone’s parents ban them from seeing each other. This one is not good either but at least no one dies.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Now about the clip.
That clip was beautiful, very, very beautiful. It wasn’t special but it showed that there are things that never change. And Jonnor fluff is always welcome, tbh.
What I find interesting about this clip, however, it’s Taylor. What is she on about? Does she know about Jude and Connor? Does she suspect it? She’s not a fangirl, obviously so… Why does she care? Does she like Jude? Is she just an overprotective friend? Is she going to kill everyone?
We know literally nothing about her, and even when Daria has added the whole girlfriend thing to the storyline she’s just like… there. It’s weird. I think she will have a very important role on the tragedy part of the storyline. I still love her tho.
So… I guess that’s it. I warned you that it was long. Sorry:/
BTW I wanted to say thank you to all of you because from day 1 you’ve made me feel like home, talking to me and asking me stuff and just fangirling and I really appreciate it. Thank you, really.
So that’s all for now. See ya people!
