a el why

catherinejade04  asked:

ive seen so many people hate on kali because she killed people, but el did too. why is no one talking about that? oh i know, because she’s white and a main character.

it took me a while to answer this ask because… it’s a little more complicated than that. i mean, i’m sure el did what she did with the intent to kill but she was also uh protecting herself from further lab stuff (when she killed those guys in the lab) and then of course she was protecting the rest of the party bc she thought THEY were gonna kill her

what kali is doing is deliberate murder against the people who have hurt her in the past. like, it’s obvious she’s gone through severe trauma and wasn’t able to get the help she needed when she was young so she feels like this is the only path she has so i can’t even blame her for killing people. it makes sense with her character arc. but i hope in s3, more options can be explored for her

i do agree that people are needlessly hating kali for killing like…. if you consider her backstory and how she’s been living, it makes sense. you don’t have to like her but!!! yeah

When people ask why I've been so motivated at the gym:

so i started reading the Ron Chernow book and i just

FLORID COMPLEXION

he’s already naturally rosy cheeked, imagine if he gets flustered and laughs hard enough that he blushes im cryI N G

so, we all know that originally Tulio & Miguel were meant to be a married couple. and we have them saying these parting words, which’s kinda funny and all-

BUT

in Russian dubbing the above convo goes WAY better and really changes the story.

it starts with Tulio, saying: “Well, we’ve been friends…”

then Miguel adds, quite timidly: “I just want you to know… I’ve been admiring you for a long time-

and Tulio ends with: “Same here.”

so, it’s like Miguel wants to confess his eternal love for Tulio, then they’re interrupted, then there’s Chel, and then Miguel goes all nuts and angry bc he had no chance to say ‘i love you, pardner’ (and it was kinda obvious to me when i was a kid, okay, it was literally the only plot i knew back then!)
