Aaron Echolls

VMHQ DADS WEEK POLL RESULTS

Hey folks! Poll results are in for our ‘Worst Dad of Neptune’ contest, and looks like Aaron Echolls MURDERED the competition with 83.3% of the vote. (I know. I know. I’m sorry.)

Stewart Manning, our abusive-but-not-homicidal runner-up garnered 13.9%, and Big Dick Casablancas ran a distant and unlamented third. 

Attempts to inform Aaron of the prize were unsuccessful, he was busy boiling lobsters for his son’s Surprise June Birthday Bash. We sent him a Wet-Vac instead.

Jason Dohring plays Logan so well. I find myself always watching the little things he do, particularly his hand gestures, xD. But he is most compelling when he’s playing Logan in scenes with Harry Hamlin’s Aaron.

It’s quite fascinating really. The way Jason chooses to hunch Logan’s shoulders down, lowering his head, curling in like a turtle. It’s so striking to me how Jason literally makes Logan physically smaller when in Aaron’s presence, subtly coiling inward or cowering.

And then you see a difference after his mother dies, and Logan doesn’t give as much a fuck. Jason plays Logan standing taller, shoulders more out and forward, and you realize that he’s actually bigger than Aaron.

I mean, there’s no doubt that Logan must have been an incredibly strong kid. The tenacity he has. If he hadn’t been, he would have been dead a long time ago. I think if circumstances had been different (but with his mother still dead), Logan would probably someday have thrown off the reigns his father had on him after all the years of abuse.

I just love the way JD plays it.

Veronica: He beats Logan, you know?  

Duncan nods.

“Logan tells fake-Charlie that when Aaron was forcing pears down his throat, Lynn jumped to his defense and “held a cheese knife to his throat” until he finally stopped. She did care. I think she was a good mother. Aaron’s darkness just engulfed them all. Maybe she was threatened or beaten too? Maybe Logan wanted her to save herself. I guess she finally did.”
