Ok so - if you know me at all you know that I have been ADAMANT from the beginning that Beth knew that Sarah would be at that train station at that time. That’s just WAY too big a coincidence, plus she shows no surprise when she turns around and sees Sarah’s face, AND she leaves her shoes as if to say ‘step into my place’. It’s all been very clear but for the life of me I could not figure out HOW this could be true.
Until today when @punk-rock-science and I realized something: it is entirely possible that the entire plot of Orphan Black rests on -
Yeah, that Bobby. The bartender.
We know that she knows Sarah through Felix. We also know that Beth had a serious substance abuse problem. So, it is entirely possible that -
-Bobby knew Sarah when she was with Vic.
-Beth came into Bobby’s bar at least once, possibly several times, but most notably on the night before she confronted Evie for some liquid courage.
-Bobby happened to mention how 'oh wow, you look exactly like my friend’. They strike up a discussion about this friend and how she is coming back into town that night on a train. She knows this from Felix, who (in this theory) was complaining in the bar about Sarah’s absence and her sudden intent to reappear in his life (We know he had advance notice of this because he is expecting Sarah when they first meet up in the bar).
-Beth leaves the bar and has a Pretty Rough Night, during the course of which Evie tells her to 'use that gun on yourself’. However, instead of doing this, she remembers Bobby’s story about her friend who looks 'exactly’ like her. Her friend who is coming into town that night on a train. And makes a different call.
Now, you could say that Beth knew exactly who Sarah 'the Lost Clone’ Manning was from her previous digging into clone lives, or you could say that she just assumed this was a random new clone - one she wouldn’t be letting down by stepping in front of that train, but still could trust to take over for her. Either way, it could work.
yo, it’s like… 6 am. i tried to get some sleep, but it was bad, fitful sleep (seriously it just made me even more exhausted) ..and also i am now sick from all the rain and shit i was running around in yesterday. im still going to work on things today, but i might be a little slow. thanks for understanding, and sorry if this message is worded weird, i keep falling asleep while typing & going back to edit the mistakes.
EXPLAINING COMMON SENSE TO ANTIS AND OT8 STANS (1/??)
fact: when working on a film or a drama, the person hired does not work under the group’s name but as an actor, as an individual person. this is not only the case with yixing, but also with chanyeol and kyungsoo. where was the outrage then? or is it only bad when it’s a Chinese member?

I…honestly don’t have the energy to tag but imma do it anyway bc DEDICATION AND MOTIVATION which i possess neither of Tagging: @kimjondae, @xiuminel, @baekhyunslipchain, @jeonins and @love-seok you don’t have to do this if you don’t want but you can never go wrong with exo bby pics or bby pics in general just saying
Okay, so my first flight was already canceled, which means instead of taking a one hour, direct flight I am now spending about eight hours traveling today with two stops, but I am determined to seen Randy in Cabaret for a final two times and also to meet up with the fabulous @harryjamcs so I am DOING IT. Taking my laptop, but prob won’t be on it all that much. See you all Monday night! (Unless, of course, the snow strands me THERE too. Le sigh.)
i’d just like to take this second to shoutout to the people on my dash slash my friends who were supporting arsenal last night because honestly they were a hell of a lot more gracious and understanding during the match than the bayern fans even with the scoreline we got so – anna and gwyn (and ze/sanni/scott slightly) i love y’all
