Secondly, a lot of people instantly jumped to "Creek is canon" so imma start by that.
At first I was confused, they were pretending after all so was it canon??
But after rewatching it, I kinda got conviced about that.
For about the whole first half of the episode, Tweek and Craig seem to simply be straight against the idea of them being gay, even though they boths rest sleepless. Some say they can't sleep because they're annoyed?? I think they look more wary and confused than simply upset, and I really like to think they're actually questioning their orientation. //Stan too
Then comes the fight. We don't have much details on why or how they came to fight. But they're both on the defensive towards the saying that they're together. Getting angry towards the other is a pretty obvious answer, plus it'd show everyone they're actually not together since they're fighting. That's pretty much confirmed by the fact that they both look upset when the principal calls their fight a "lovers quarrel". The fight might have just been planned but tbh I doubt it was.
After that comes the fake break up. I've seen some people say that Tweek was letting through some of his real emotions through his monologue but eh I don't think so. Like really, he's literally grinning while walking away.
The whole sad thing passes and comes the scene where Craig comes back home. He's obvious upset, Id even say he looks sad. Actually he looks completely miserable with the rain pouring down on him. This is where I start thinking Craig is seriousy questioning his sexuality. If he were simply angry about "never getting any chicks" he'd be well, angry. Like stomping and raging or something, but he just genuinely looks sad.
After that Tweek comes back. Without counting the fact that their dialogue souds cheesily cliche, which was surely done on purpose, Tweek comes to get back with Craig because he thinks everyone is pretty miserable without them being together. That's confirmed by the scene where we see Tweek smiling and walking down the hallway while everyone looks gloomy. This actually made me think that on the contrary of Craig, Tweek really doesn't think he's gay. He was just happy fake breaking up and returning to normal life. But then he comes up with the whole "You changed something in me so I want to help you" stuff. Honestly this part confuses me most. It could be platonic but really cheesy for the sake of the innuendo or it could be romantic (and really cheesy).
While Tweek seems so vague, Craig seems more seriously affected. He quite "neutral", almost sad, when saying that he can't be what he isn't because everyone expects him to, and tbh I felt like he was more referencing to his dad than anyone else.
Further confirmation of this is that when his dad comes to see him he again, looks sad/confused/perplexed. He's still questioning himself. And when his dad tells him he loves and supports him no matter what, Craig goes to get back with Tweek.
A lil more than that:
At the beginning everyone thought Craig and Tweek were gay, even though they weren't particularly hanging out or spending time together. So if they were just going to "fake get back together for the sake of the town", they wouldn't have been obliged to hang out or anything.
BUT they hold hands, more than to just show everyone they're together again. AND they hang out, like actually spend time talking and stuff. And they seem to be enjoying it.
And now after this I'm too tired to head on to what was supposed to be oart 2:
Craig's Dad. But basically the way they handled Craig's Dad is amazing and we need so much more of that like damn yes.
Ok, Yeah. We understand your point. Maybe we are right and they are in love, or maybe you are right and they are boyfriends only because they have so much pressure to do it. But… What whit that? We understand. We are not fools. We are fans too. If they brake up, it they say that the had never love each other in the end of the season, well, we’ll be sad, but, the show is like this. The show is an entire satire.
If you like it, that’s ok. If you don’t like, well, that’s ok too. It’s only a show.
We have shipped them since ‘99, but, if they are canon ‘cause bad things, Have we have to be sad or angry? Can’t we be happy? I don’t understand. The shippers will never change. They can be boyfriends, if they break up, people will write fanfiction about they getting together again, they will draw fanart about they being happy years after.
So, what’s the point of being angry with us? You know. They are making fun of us, the shippers in a really realistic and soft form. I really like how they manage it.
We shipped them before, we ship them now, and no matter what happens in the next episodes, we will still ship them.
Take it easy, Trey and Matt are great and love us no matter how weird are we.
