I said no to Marion Guthrie’s plan despite having no alternative and at the risk of losing the entire endeavor because I refuse to situate a man in a position where he might interfere one day with my ability to repair things with you.
And calico disappears. And my father’s business, that he inherited from his father, and his father’s father, begins to wither and die. And my father suffers the compound shame of financial failure seen through the eyes of his son, and descended into drink. I’d sit beside him as a boy at the Sunday service as he shouted at the pastor, at the altar - at anyone who would listen, really - at the injustice of it all. […] So, I set to work, determined to rebuild what had been taken away. I was thirteen years old, but I was determined. Until a man arrived at my door, claiming to hold debts belonging to my father, debts accumulated as my father drank, debts he claimed that now belonged to me, debts I could not possibly hope to repay. Debts over which this man would have seen me imprisoned. Imprisoned in a place where the debts would have been discharged only through hard labour, hard labour and no wages. Working at - wait for it - the production of textiles.
Thought of the day: What if they gave us K*ramel as a problematic relationship to show Kara that she definitely deserves better? But has been setting us up from the beginning for a slow burn SuperCorp? In my optimistic head, it makes perfect sense. The chemistry and dynamic between Lena and Kara is beyond 9,000. Every interaction between the two has shifted their friendship, drawing them much closer since their first meeting.
But why a slow burn and a problematic relationship? Well, when Katie was brought on to the show she was already involved with other films and series. Thus making her only available to come back in blocks and later in the season.
So, in return we are fed K*ramel which only becomes more toxic and manipulative as the episodes progress and is literally built on the foundations of lies. But the moment Lena comes back for episodes, Kara seems to be smiling a lot more and brighter. Lena is literally always there to help Kara and Supergirl whenever asked or not. Where M*n El runs or disobeys. The relationship dynamic between them are so different and it’s almost purposely done.
You can’t tell me that all those lip bites and heart eyes were for nothing!!
After today’s episode, I’ve been noticing a lot of people saying “Starco is dead.” Or “Jarko is going to be endgame.” Trust me, Starco is far from being dead. We still have a whole other season to go. (Maybe even a 4th) If you haven’t noticed, Daron likes fooling us. Starco is still going strong. It may seem dead, but it’s not. Just wait until Marco finds out about Star’s crush on him. Besides, us Starco shippers aren’t going down without a fight. :)
