"So what’s this Duncan look like?"

No one who uses THAT MUCH product in a productlessworld is a good guy). But I have to give him props for getting a reaction out of Bass. Coz however you look at it: whether you thinkhe's thinking about her in a Miles way and she's unofficially his neice by proxy. Or a friend way - where respect is not optional. Or anally way where she's on his team so srsly f**k off. Or whether he feels something for her himself (whatever that is) that makes himprotective (he was the elder brother of two little sisters. Surely buried down deep is the need to protect young women from creeps in general) it's a nice moment. And also CHARLIE'S - 'YOU TALKING TO ME' FACE. Which is probably part offense that this idiot thinks she's beenswayed by Monroe's pretty looks and part WHY ARE THE SLEEZY ONES ALWAYS DRAWN TO ME? AM I GIVING OFF A SCENT THEY'RE PICKING UP?And I love how Bass smiles - playing harmless ol' Jimmy - when he first turns around and then slowly it falls away as he gets morefrustrated until FINALLY this guy leering at Charlie does away the last of his goodwill. And he rigidly accepts the clap to the arm withoutpummeling him - by some miracle of will power. And I love how Charlie looks up at him in the last gifAnd I love how Duncan ALSO assumes that Charlie and Bass are together. (Possibly a contributing factor that pushes Charlie to screwConnor?) And there's so much EYEBROW raising. Except from Connor who sort of watches on like this is a tennis match. Coz no one'sexplained what happened in New Vegas LAST TIME. That his dad joined fight club and was sweaty and half dressed like all the time...until he was kidnapped by Adam and a Pirate. And things got more complicated from there. Until eventually he was executed - but not reallyI really like seeing Bass out with the 'kids'. (I wish Miles would take a turn. But I'm not holding my breath)Bass' Adventures in BabysittingAnd he is SO SO lucky he didn't have a daughter because she'd be...well CHARLIE. I guess. And we all know how much trouble she can findwhen she puts her mind to it. He'd have to kill so many drunken idiots. One night stands. And bandits and sh*t it'd wear him out.I like that in this sort of environment Charlie's safe with Bass. He's not going to let anyone get any ideas...of course he was also relying on his SON knowing better. SO WHOOPS. That was a miscalculation.
