You know what Logan gives Rory that no one else does? Autonomy. Logan has always always always respected Rory’s choices. Rory drops out of Yale? Logan doesn’t like it but knows Rory is an adult who can make her own decisions. Rory decides to take an internship with his dad? Warns Rory what Mitchum is like but doesn’t stop her. Before having sex with Rory? Asks for verbal consent- twice. When Rory wants to date him? Tells her upfront that he’s not a boyfriend guy so she has the chance to back off. Logan is literally the only person in Rory’s life that respects Rory can make decisions on her own, regardless of whether he thinks she’s right or wrong.

David Tennant as Romeo in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Romeo and Juliet (2000)

David Tennant on playing Romeo:
What I remember particularly about Romeo and Juliet is that people expect a chocolate-box love story. I think that’s what people imagine that story is, even though they know it’s tragic and it doesn’t end happily. They’re expecting some great essay on love. I don’t think that’s what the play is. Romeo and Juliet spend remarkably little time together and, when they are on stage together, the longest chunk of time you see them interacting with each other is the balcony scene, where the very definition is that they can’t touch, they can’t be together, there’s a physical and emotional barrier between them. I think the play is about all sorts of things, but I don’t know really that it is about love. That’s one of the things that you have to get over when playing Romeo, because if you come to the play thinking, ‘I’ve come to play a great lover’, that’s not a very helpful place to start.  The play is as much about society and the  politics of the world they’re in as it is the meditation on love which people expect.

Over and over it seems, Daryl was given an opportunity to advance the war against Neg@n. Richard gave him the chance with the Saviors on the road, which most likely would have led Ezekiel to join the war. We saw how that turned out.

Daryl knew that telling Carol about Abe and Glenn would cause her to take everyone to fight against the Saviors. She asked him point blank if everyone was okay, and gave him the chance. And he chose to lie, and not tell her about it. Another scenario that likely would have led Kingdom to join the war.

So, Daryl’s entire mission in staying in Kingdom was to get Ezekiel to join the war, and given two chances to do so, one of which would have harmed Carol physically, and the other of which would have harmed her emotionally, mentally, and maybe physically, Daryl chose Carol’s well-being above all else.

It’s very easy to see his priorities. He’s not giving up on the war. He’s going to fight, but he’s going to do so on his own terms.

    you know that a boy who likes boys is a dead boy, unless
                                he keeps his mouth shut, which is what you
                                                                           didn’t do,
                    because you are weak and hollow and it doesn’t matter anymore. (x)

“Tyson?”

“What?”

“You can kiss my ass.”

“Hey, Tyson. You can kiss my ass, too.”

Wait a minute Lizzie started a fire ?!

Yaaaas, she totally started the fire in the wardrobe (in order to give Richard/Perkin a chance to escape, but he is like NAW I’M A YORK, THAT MEANS I AM MADE OF BLONDE HAIR AND BAD DECISIONS) and just stood there cold stone-faced like …well like, I AM A YORK, THAT MEANS I AM MADE OF BLONDE HAIR AND BAD DECISIONS.
