so it will never happen in a million years in canon probably but, i just can’t help but hope that it isn’t the end for ed and oswald??? they had one of the best…easiest relationships in the show. and even though its obviously heart breaking treachery, all of that still exists.
like it still is super fuckin weird how Isabella just came into existence?? she was too perfect. and if we do not learn that she was some spy or weird thing with Strange then its just very poor writing and an excuse and queer baiting.
and love is too difficult to just throw aside even if hate is very close to it…i think Oswald’s feelings would always be Strong for Ed. and maybe with time he might realize that he shouldn’t have done what he did, that it WAS selfish, no matter the circumstances.
but also Ed is a huge hypocrite. he killed Kristen’s boyfriend (granted he claimed that it was so he wouldn’t hurt her anymore but im sure that jealousy was a additional factor)
and he knew her for a WEEK. And he hardly knew either of them. @oswaldcobblepotisgay made a great post about Ed and compulsory heterosexuality and it makes sense. Kristen and Isabella are Ed’s ideal of a ‘normal’ life and love.
i don’t think that Oswald’s attraction was one sided, i just don’t think that Ed ever put two and two together.
And if rumors of Oswald getting a new love interest is true then we can only hope that maybe jealousy (on ed’s part) is a thing that happens.
(but also its deeply confusing bc his whole thing is like…not making the mistake to Love again and also that Ed was his one true love and before Ed he literally showed no romantic/sexual inclination towards anyone soooo.) im just saying that if they’re dangling a pretty healthy, loving gay relationship in front of us then snatch it away in a tangle of heartbreak and unhappiness then they better not do the same thing again (or worse, put him with a lady ((yeah he could be bi but it feels fuckin weird like theyre saying hey this same sex relationship didnt work sooooo try THIS TA DA)))
tl;dr the writers of Gotham are terrible and i hope they fix their shit when it comes to Ed and Oswald
