Imagine that your OTP is watching TV and Wendy’s commercial for their ghost pepper fries comes on. When the TV goes “it’s perfect if you’re hot for spice,” Person A turns to Person B and asks them “you know who I’m hot for?” and tackles them onto the couch.
them: you’ve never been in a relationship, you don’t know what it’s like to have your heart broken
*internally screams* EX-FUCKING-CUSE ME!?!?! I’VE BEEN WATCHING MY OTP DANCE AROUND THEIR SEXUAL TENSION FOR LITERALLY SEASONS UPON SEASONS. I’VE WATCHED THEM AS THEY LOVED OTHER PEOPLE, BUT COULDN’T UNDERSTAND WHY IT NEVER WORKED OUT. FELT PHYSICAL HEART-ACHE AS I WATCHED THEM PINE FOR EACH OTHER AND DROWNED MYSELF IN MY FEELINGS, ICE CREAM, TEA, AND BLANKETS WHEN THE SHOW ENDED. BUT FOR GOD’S SAKE, BECAUSE I’VE NEVER LOVED A SIGNIFICANT OTHER THERE’S NO POSSIBLE WAY I COULD KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO HAVE MY HEART BROKEN.
Can we talk about Dan’s choice right here in Watch What Happens (Reprise)?
Right during the end of the song just after “You can’t undo the past” Jack pulls out the letter from Crutchie again and looks at it before putting it away again, right at the moment of the song where Jack makes the choice to rejoin the strike. (I have no clue how to make gifs so please enjoy this series of photos)
This whole thing just bookends this scene so well. We know Jack wants to quit the strike because of Crutchie getting hurt/putting the newsies in danger. However, the whole argument of this scene is that they’re close to winning so they should keep pushing through, but that doesn’t really make sense as a motivation for Jack to rejoin the strike since him quitting wasn’t really connected to that.
So by having Jack look at the letter right when he makes the decision to rejoin, the motivation instead shifts to Jack realizing that only through the strike can he help Crutchie (and the newsies as a whole). He quits the strike for Crutchie, so it only makes sense that he rejoins for him.
Like, even if you’re not Jack/Crutchie trash like me, you cannot deny how much their relationship motivates Jack’s choices. Especially since on a broader metaphorical level Crutchie represents the newsies as a whole.
Also in case you were wondering, Dan’s the only Jack who does this, so kudos for such a smart choice with so much depth. I just. Wow. Good for you Dan.
