This is the last I’m going to say anything on this because it’s driving me crazy that many see four seconds of a scene and jump so drastically. Especially when many hate this ship and routinely say Frank should die or found him being suicidal to be funny or a hundred other things.
Y'all realize that they weren’t having sex yet in the four seconds we saw, right? They didn’t magically lose his pants or her underwear. She would have had to pull back and undo his pants and get herself situated as well. And you realize that would have given them a chance to stop if Frank didn’t want it?
Frank said wait and this isn’t what I meant because he wants to have something deeper with her. He didn’t say no. Laurel isn’t ready for that but we know Frank loves her and is going to be there for her however she wants. Same thing happened in the S2 basement scene and Frank gave into the sex because he wants her in some way.
As I said while watching it, it’s not how I wanted it to go down. It was weird and shitty writing. It missed the mark. And like Frank, I wanted them to talk more before the sex happened. I hate that it happened at all.
But I get Laurel has a hard time being vulnerable right now. Frank gets it too, and will take what he can get with her. That has always been how he is with her.
Judging by the promo for next week, Frank’s good, things are fine, and the promo sex is more intimate and loving.
I’d rather wait and see how Frank feels before jumping to conclusions on what happened after the camera cut away. Because none of us know, but the history of their relationship and their dynamics are pretty good clues.
