I'm wondering if we're going to get more moments of unrequited love from Tulip and Cassidy? there were moments in Season 1 that led me to believe this would be an ongoing thing.
you bet your bottom dollar we will. cassidy is very much in love with her - we see that confirmed time and again, including in the opening of the s1 finale as he describes her as having been “burned into his brain” and later his reaction to her hugging him…and ofc his jealousy, quickly suppressed and put aside, when tulip and jesse kiss (although he doesn’t know it’s bc jesse used Genesis lol).
the thing that makes jesse/tulip/cassidy so tragic is that cassidy loves them both. jesse is the best friend he’s had since before he was a vampire and he’s in love with tulip - they’re two different kinds of love and he won’t pursue tulip bc that’s his best friend’s girl. it’s literally that song “jesse’s girl” lol but basically cassidy goes from having no one at all to having two people he cares about deeply very quickly…and that’s a lot more compelling and layered than any regular old love triangle. I do adore jesse/tulip but tulip/cassidy will always be my fav and under other circumstances I think they’d be perfect for each other. in any case, they have a beautiful friendship on the show I imagine will only develop further, and cassidy’s tenderness towards her is a lovely thing.
