this scene messed me up SO BADLY the first time that i decided to replay the whole game up to this point just to make it last longer & now i’m finally back
anyway, important things to note:
michael fucking trying to hide jimmy behind him, just in case trevor leaps over the counter and tries to strangle him, for no reason, right there and then, in front of his parents, a random yoga instructor, and god
the lil hissed “that’s great!!! that’s great”which i am just feeling so hard for some reason like i will forever be hearing that in my head when some rich stingy self-absorbed asshole brags to me about their latest pay raise or whatever. that beautiful menacing edge of “i am actually so fucking angry at your entire existence that i have become unable to process my own emotions and instead looped back to slightly irritated apathy”
the fact that michael expects him to hurt his children and instead the very first thing trevor wants to do is save one
the fact that michael is so surprised about this even though tracey has always loved her uncle t and vice versa
the fact that he’s built up trevor to be this horrible, uncaring monster in his head - which he absolutely IS, just not when it comes to his friends! not when it comes to him! - in order to justify every shitty thing he’s done to him, and now he’s being reminded what he’s ACTUALLY like and it just dmfdnqnwfoqwnf
AND THEN MICHAEL GETS IN THE CAR AND STARTS FUCKING, BRO-TALKING IT UP ABOUT GODDAMN KALE PROTEIN SHAKES, SAVE THESE STUPID IDIOTS, THIS GAME IS GOING TO KILL ME
James: “Winn, I’m really sorry about before. I didn’t quite get it.” Winn: “Get what?” James: “How much you like Kara.” Winn: “Yeah of course I like her, like as a friend and colleague and my all-time favourite superhero.”
———————————— James: “I’m not in your way. If you have feelings for Kara you should tell her.”
DID THEY JUST FUCKING VALIDATE WINN’S FUCKBOY BEHAVIOUR?
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU APOLOGIZING FOR JIMMY? YOU DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG!!!!
And then James encouraged Winn to tell Kara how he feels about her? Really?
I was hoping that you would do better than this show. But it looks like you’re super feminist about everything BUT one of the most imporTant things about feminism which is the whole nice guy trope and that GIRLS DON’T OWE YOU ANYTHING!
Kara: “I don’t want to be a hero like him. My cousin, he’s so used to going it alone, but I don’t want to be that way…you, Winn, my sister…we’re a team…part of being your own man is knowing when to accept help.” James: “You really want to do the interview?” Kara: “At first I was scared but I’m not anymore. I want to do it.” James: “For me?” Kara: For what we’re trying to do here together. For us.“
James: “Actually, Miss Grant, your interview with Supergirl has already started. Look out your window.” [Kara flies Cat Grant’s car to the top of a roof] Kara: “Miss Grant, James Olsen said you want to talk. Let’s talk.”
