hello character development

How your feelings about Prince Zuko change and develop throughout the series.

“This guy is a total dick.”

“Ok, you’re still being a dick, but like it’s because your dad is a much bigger dick.”

“Still being a dick, and yet you’re really growing on me.”

“Can you just chill the fuck out for like five minutes?”

“For a villain, you’re actually really honorable.”

“Seriously, your family is the worst. Your mom and uncle are cool though.”

“I feel your inherent good nature conflicting with your shitty upbringing.”

“YAAASS you’re being so cool now!”

“See? It’s nice being a good guy.”

“Wait…What!? Why are you being a dick again?!!”

“I’m not mad, I’m just really disappointed…”

“Now you feel guilty about being such a dick.”

“You know you’re supposed to be a good guy, quit fighting it already!”

“FINALLY!!!!! You’re being so awesome now and I love you.”

“You could have handled that better, but you’re trying and I support you.”

“You’re seriously the coolest character ever.”

“Also your hair looks great right now.”

“I think all of Team Avatar finally loves you now too.”

“My love for you is infinite and undying.”

“You’re gonna be the best fire lord ever.”

“I want to have your animated children.”

“I’ve finished the series and I’m not coping well.”

“I need a series all about fire lord Zuko.”

I cannot believe how freaking OPEN Dean is with Cas this season, like earlier, ‘I’m not mad, I’m worried,’ & then this ep, 'We didn’t know what happened to you; we were worried,’ like holy shit, DEAN WINCHESTER is actually pushing past his defensive wall of anger to articulate his feelings, Dean is actually trying to use WORDS to repair a relationship, like hello character development, & the worst thing is he’s so open now but Cas is still so closed, so Dean keeps opening himself up just to get his heart battered again.

Can we talk about this though

This entire arc this guy (Xander Pane) has been leading his terrorist group around and threatening everyone with bombs and when he runs into Elecman it’s revealed that, when reprogrammed, Elecman had nearly killed him and in the process destroyed one of his eyes

What does Elecman do when he realizes this?

He apologizes to the terrorist because he genuinely feels guilty. He’s like “I know I hurt you and even though it won’t make up for it, I’m sorry.” And he hopes it means at least something.

HELLO CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT I LOVE YOU

Ode to a brat: aka spill some Cosima feels.

Dudes, I have been waiting all season for this kind of movement in Cosima’s storyline.

Yes, she’s a TOTAL brat, but with good reason.  

Cosima is very aware that Delphine is looking for a cure.  She also knows that Delphine is willing to do really sketchy stuff to do it. In short, she doesn’t want to need her help.  With Kira whisked away to an undisclosed location, how far will Delphine go?  Use Sarah? Helena? Helena’s precious cargo?

Cosima also feels like she’s burdening people when she’s sick. She spent the better part of last season not telling anyone about her illness.  So she puts on the show.  I feel great.  Everything’s fine.  But, in reality, she’s Leslie Knope trying to convince Ann Perkins she can do cartwheels. This time, she’s getting called out on it. You know it’s bad when Alison calls you out on your shit.

I don’t know how trustworthy Shay is, but to Cosima, she’s a safe harbor. She’s the first person we’ve met on the show who just loves being around Cosima for her awesomeness, and not her cloneness. (Again, as far as we know. I’ll be hella broken if Shay is indeed shady.) She treats Cosima like a fellow human. She hasn’t lied to her, or tried to manipulate her, she’s just Shay. Someone to talk to. Or make out with. Someone who is warm and comforting when you reveal you have a scary disease eating you alive.

If I’m mad about anything, it’s that it took 7 episodes to see this kind of movement in Cosima’s storyline.

“Since it’s a new year, I thought I would you know give up a guilty pleasure and I tried giving up chocolate because…well I have a terrible sweet tooth and I already failed. My assistant gave me a chocolate cake for my birthday and yeah, mark me as a failure.”
