it kinda does bother me the fandom is treating Star dating Tom as her moving on too fast from Marco.
But Marco moving on as fast as he did from Jackie also doesn’t count?
I’m pretty sure the show has no intention on making it sound as if Star is forcing this relationship on Tom as a means to bury feelings for Marco.
No, this feels more like a result of rushed writing, you can’t say one moving on so fast is one thing, but find it perfectly fine for another.
If anything it’s worse in Marco’s case because we at least had one episode for Star dealing with letting Marco go, Marco didn’t get that with Jackie, he flipped so fast he might as well be making pancakes.
And considering Club Snubbed involved Star being oddly jealous of the attention Tom presented to everyone but her, i can at least buy more that she still held some attraction towards him, more then i can buy whatever the heck they were trying to give me with Marco.
Heck, it’s made kinda clear for Star there was time in between her episodes with Tom at least.((It was weeks in before Marco showed up)) Marco came back the next day after his break-up and seemed pretty much fine. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Don’t be hypocritical, if Star is moving on too fast, then MARCO is also moving on too fast.
The fandom really wants to make this out to be Star rushing and burying her feelings, but this seems to be more of a writing problem, rather then a character thing this season.
