Okay but the fact that a single 30-second deleted scene can get me this worked up is amazing and a testament to how incredible Goran and Abigail are and the care they’ve put into their characters. Bless them and their families and their cows. I am Shook.
OPA here. Had to take a break after your bitch slap. Kidding!. Been busy. A few points: those helping put out "friends only" narrative as you say might enjoy perks or just do it a s favor. Doing favors helps in this industry. Reward isn't necessarily immediate. Rankin wants to drum up interest for his part on the show so why not stick his beard in the lives of the most popular element of the show? Make sense? Chances are these two might just be friend and don't want rumors to override talent.
