and this scene is epic

Ok I’m still processing the revelations from this episode, but the confrontation scene between Alex and Maggie on the couch has some epic acting man. Like, kudos to how Maggie’s lip wobbles like she’s trying really hard not to cry bc she thinks Alex is gonna break up with her. They could’ve had her tear up or look away, but it’s much more in character to have her jaw wobble like that, it’s not Hollywood-pretty but it looks real. And it fits her character, because we’ve already seen how reserved and composed Maggie tends to be with emotions like this.

Just…phenomenal acting.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
