I haven’t made one of these reviews in a while, but this episode is probably the best episode this entire season. So here we go.
Marco plays smooth Jazz on a cheap keyboard
Janna continuing to flirt with Marco, only to reveal that she actually has a crush on… some obscure 18th century poet
Janna likes Pink but doesn’t like contributing to gender stereotypes.
Star makes brownies with “magic sprinkles” (read: weed)
Starfan13 straight up likes girls. There is no other way to interpret that scene. And its so explicitly the case. SVTFOE isn’t the first show to depict a character as anything other than straight, but this is still a good sign. It shows that the Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland aren’t a one time deal. Its only a matter of time before we have a Disney show with a canon LGBTQ main character.
I love the fact that nobody over at the sleepover tells the truth. Even Starfan13, who arguably has the least on the line, still actively lies.
And the lies get complicated too. Marco actually ends up telling the truth, even though he thinks he lying, while several of the characters who thought they were being honest are implied to have actually been lying. Because of this, its actually impossible to tell which crush is actually real, and which one isn’t.
Janna may or may not have a crush on Marco.
PONYHEAD is implied to also have a crush on Marco, though she could of just as easily been calling him out as the actual liar.
Jackie doesn’t know how she feels about crushes, but isn’t disgusted by Marco.
Marco thinks he has a crush on Jackie, but that crush might only be superficial. Its entirely possible he has a crush on Star, but even if that is the actual case, I doubt he himself realizes it.
Star is revealed to actually have a canon crush on Marco, though as is the case with Marco, I doubt she realizes it. The fact that Marco is briefly drawn to resemble Oskar, Star’s most explicit crush, supports this.
Which brings us to the actual lesson in this episode, which I feel is the real highlight of this episode. People’s oppinions are not black and white, and the truth isn’t always what people believe it to be. This is actually the first time I’ve ever seen a character in a work of fiction not only lie to themselves, but also acknowledge the fact that these inner lies can genuinely come across as the truth to themselves. So many works of fiction seem to believe that lying is an active thing, and that liars always know the real truth, but this episode shows that thats not always the case.
Jackie continues to be the character I care for the least. I don’t actually hate her, but she still feels incredibly flat. Decoy love interests in general, like Trixie Tang from the Fairly Odd Parents and Paulina from Danny Phantom tend to get on my nerves in general. (Personally, I feel that the creators of this show could of avoided this all by merging her character and Janna together when the show was still being developed, but I digress)
On a more trivial note, I totally look like a huge shipper now that I’ve written this post. Personally, I’m of the oppinions that romance isn’t necessary for most stories, but SVTFOE actually has plenty of cute shipping moments that do have some degree of effect on the plot, so I suppose I’m giving this show a pass.
So I decided not to do the rest of the bindings I had set up tonight. They can wait for another time.
Instead I performed a love spell. Now before anyone gets all huffed up there are many different kinds of love out there. Anyways, the spell included writing a statement down and placing herbs in the middle and folding up the paper. After I burned it, the flame went into the middle and my paper looked like a heart.
It was amazing, so beautiful. To see the herbs burning inside the paper first for a while and then the outside going up in flames. I’m taking it as a good sign, it looked like the inside of the heart was warm. Like the spell started from the inside and slowly radiated outwards. I hope the spell works out.

Edit: this post has raised a few questions, and I’ve tagged further analysis with ‘sandra’s signature’ - please please please check that tag before messaging me about this. Thanks!
I am inspecting the Sandra Bland arrest documentation (available to view here) and I actually… think I have found… some fucked up shit…
Here is a sample of Sandra’s signature from every signed page except for page 7:
I underlined strange spelling errors in the paperwork because I’m not familiar with American police policy and was unsure if documentation would be created anew for each inmate. I’ve enlarged her surname in each of these pictures, because this is where I found a discrepancy on page 7:
For reference, page 7 is the female inmate intake form, which is the form in which Sandra states she is not taking any medication:
compared to the unsigned page 2, in which she states she is taking medication:
It’s kind of hard to spot - and to be honest, if I didn’t deal with contracts on a daily basis at my own job, I might not have spotted it - but that B is not the same on this signature. I noticed a difference in the way the base of the letter was formed, and on closer inspection, it’s apparent that it has been formed in an entirely different way to any of the other signatures in the arrest documentation, which is unusual for a signature as the individual generally writes it the same way each time. That’s, y’know, the point of a signature.
I’ve made some comparisons of my own to show exactly how this signature differs from all the others.
Firstly, here are the other signatures again:
And here is the signature on page 1 compared with the signature on page 7:
Here are my own attempts at replicating each letter B. The
first B is a copy of the letter as it appears in the image. The second is an
exaggerated depiction of the letter to show how the letter was formed. The arrows on each second picture show the direction of the line I was drawing to form the letter in one fluid moment without having to remove my pen from the page (as you would in a signature).
This is a copy of the letter B as it appears in Sandra’s signature on pages 1, 4, 5, 9 and 10:
And this is a copy of the letter B as it appears in the signature on page 7:
This image shows each individual component / pen stroke required in order to form the letter in each signature:
As you can see, the only stroke that these two letters have in common is the first downward stroke. The second stroke takes the letter in an entirely different direction - Sandra usually forms an upward stroke behind the first one, then comes around to form the two curves, then makes an upward stroke to join the B to the next letter. The signature on page 7, after the initial downward stroke, makes a horizontal and upward stroke to form the two curves, then a downward stroke to form the base of the B and join it to the next one.
This difference cannot be explained due to normal signature variation. No-one’s signature looks exactly the same each time they sign it, but they write it the same way – they make the same fluid movements with the pen. The letters are formed the way they usually write them, and any apparent variation is simply due to circumstance – pen pressure, paper quality, time etc. This signature is not the same signature as the others. There is no reason for Sandra to form her B this way in one signature only. The only conclusion to be drawn here is that Sandra did not sign her name on page 7.
I also noticed this funky looking area on the very first page (the booking sheet) which definitely looks like the paperwork has been doctored, but without seeing the actual paperwork, it’s hard to speculate whether the actual arrest template has been amended (ie all booking
sheets use this edited template and have this unusual area on them) or whether
Sandra’s has been doctored after the fact.
I don’t think it’s uncalled for to ask the Waller County Sheriff Department to explain the inaccuracies in this arrest paperwork, and I strongly suggest that people inspect the documentation themselves to see if anything else is amiss – I know literally nothing about the American police system, so I can only spot errors like this. I don’t know if any of the actual information is inaccurate. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if it was.
Edit 25.07.2015: Another reading that has been presented to me of this signature is as follows:
I do not personally agree with this reading, and view it like this:
but it’s important to keep both ideas in mind and rely on fact rather than suspicion, which is why I’m adding this amendment here.
