Okay but what if Harry is an older gentleman at a part and he is told there are rent boys there (compliments of the host). And he meets Eggsy and starts trying to court/hire him, and Eggsy is all receptive and smiling and blushing a bit.
So they go back to Harry’s fool around, Eggsy sleeps over but has to leave early. Harry asks if he can see him again, and Eggsy laughs and says of course. And they start spending time together, Eggsy is practically insatiable and Harry can’t help lavishing attention and gifts and affection on him.
Finally, Harry decides to ask Eggsy if he might consider only being with Harry, because Harry has fallen madly in love with him.)
Cue the very awkward reveal that Eggsy was only a waiter at the party and has been under the impression that he and Harry have been dating for the past six months.
To be honest, I’ve never seen (or I don’t remember seeing) a cartoon series teasing its main ship (Starco) so early (and so hard) in its run, not counting how cast and crew troll us shippers on almost daily basis. Kudos to Adam McArthur (Marco’s VA) for these hilariously trollific “loveconfessions” he did during his Periscopes (he’s such a nice guy).
This show is basically “Ship Tease: The Animated Series”.
It’s like they know that us viewers are now completely genre-savvy and used to the “friends to lovers” trope, so they simply have fun with it, shoving it in our faces (both in the show and outside of it). The entire episode of “Blood Moon Ball” (aka ”The Moon of Lovers”) is normally “early Final Season material” in these kind of shows, hinting to the imminent “relationship upgrade” that usually happens between the two leads in the final episode (in my opinion at least).
This is actually what happened with -big shock here- “Kim Possible”. The hints of Kim and Ron having romantic feelings for each other were generally really sparse or very subtle in Season 1-2, but suddenly became more common in Season 3, exploding in the shipping a-bomb fan-favorite episode “Emotion Sickness” (which, if you don’t count Kim and Ron’s first kiss, is basically the “Blood Moon Ball” of “Kim Possible”).
So, either they’re planning to make Starco canon already in the Season 2 finale (and possibly series finale) -since the show’s very quick renewal made more plot-planning possible (I presume)- or the SVTFOE cast/crew are simply the biggest trolls on Disney XD, second only to troll-master Alex Hirsch of course.
