Marco having dysphora is something that was planned from at least the beginning of the season & if you look at it chronologically there’s no question
- Season 2 episode 1A starts in the bathroom. Marco is showering; Star is recording a video in the same room. Marco just says “I don’t want the computer to watch me shower.” Apparently Star being there is okay, because…? It’s not clear at this point. The episode, incidentally, is about Marco being locked in a closet.
- In episode 2A, Marco includes “You’d never have to bathe alone” as a reason they’d love to be queen, implying bathing is such a stressful experience they need someone there for moral support. Last week’s episode starts to make more sense, but there are still some pieces missing.
- Someone asks Daron Nefcy why Marco is afraid to bathe alone. She says that’s a good question and the answer will be in season 2.
- Episode 13A, Naysaya: “Marco covers his mirror in the shower because, because, because he’s afraid of his own body!”
Regardless of other things that may have been unintentional, this is something we know was planned in advance that’s observably been foreshadowed since the very beginning of the season.
At the very least, that definitely raises the question of how and why the idea was brought up.
