It’s Root “I know” that gets me every time. I love she knows that she has awkward timing and cheesy lines.
I love that she’s started when she was twelve years old, insulting Hanna’s favorite game to get Hanna’s attention. And Hanna’s face when Sam Groves insulted Oregon Trail.
12 year old Sam Groves: So. Awkward.
She’s still the same, she’s stopped using insults to get people she likes to notice her, but the awkward timing remained. And, as an adult Root’s more confident now but boy, the lines are still cheesy.
Enter Shaw, who it turned out liked Root’s cheesy lines and awkward timing but it didn’t start out that way because Root’s so lame and yet, it was working. This probably was what annoyed Shaw the most.
Then she was gone nine months and Shaw realized she missed the whole ridiculous package that is Root.
