do you know what they do to horses that can't be tamed

why do you like the "come on Maya, we can't start the revolution without you!" line? It never struck me as particularly shippy

It’s a moment where he gently encourages her to do something she doesn’t wanna do. And she listens. That’s a big part of why I think they’re good for each other. She listens to him partly because he somehow knows how to appeal to her in a way others do not. Not to dehumanize Maya or anything, but a guy who is good with horses (etc) is probably well-suited for “taming” the wild side of Maya, as well as for coaxing her to do things she’s afraid of or “meh” about.

Plus, I just like the idea of Maya being necessary for the “revolution,” which IMO is perhaps a bit of meta about the show eventually breaking away from BMW-analog assumptions about what was “supposed” to happen on GMW.
