So the LaFerry hug, while seeming kind of cute and awkward on the surface, actually really scares me
Since day one Perry has been the affectionate mom. She comforts the other characters when times are tough, she bakes them things to lift their spirits, she is always looking out for everyone else and making sure they’re as comfortable and happy as possible.
But today when LaFontaine, her best friend since they were five, runs to hug her clearly scared out of their mind, there’s no reaction. Even if this had been an misunderstanding and Perry was fine and she had just gotten lost somewhere or something, I’m so sure she would’ve dedicated the rest of the episode to comforting LaF and reassuring them that she was there, she was alive.
But she doesn’t even return the hug. In fact her hands hover over LaF’s arms, not making contact at all. If we’ve reached a point where not even LaF can break through whatever is going on with Perry, how can we be sure we’re ever going to get her back?
