my plan for today is to go to stark tower and lurk threateningly near tony, maybe clean my guns menacingly & make my arm make scary noises. but just to really mess with him i’m gonna wear pigtails the whole time
“For me, This one is about a coming of age story. Wrapped up in fealty and brotherly love. That idea of brotherly love is something that the world could use a little bit of now. Knowing that you could go through life and your constants that are your friends and your family can change but you can still be you and you can still grow. If you can get that through to a player in a game, I think mission accomplished.” - Robbie Daymond
“A lot of secrets have been brewing this season,” executive producer Ali Adler acknowledges, promising that “we’ll get definitive answers” in the back half. For starters, we’ll find out what Mon-El is hiding, and why he claims not to remember “that almost unsatisfying kiss” he shared with Kara. “We’ll explore more of that relationship,” Adler says. “Kara still has to figure out how she feels about him.” Meanwhile, Alex and Maggie face a new crop of “complications”; Winn will learn “what it means to be a hero” (and will “get a little taste of love” for himself); Lena and Kara grow “closer,” leading to a possible shift in the Luthor/Super dynamic; and an army of enemies will emerge, including legendary DC Comics prankster Mr. Mxyzptlk. (“He’s a really funny character, and we’re going to get a lot of that humor.”)
OK but Victor lying awake at night in Hasetsu thinking he must have made a terrible mistake. Yuuri was drunk, he must not have meant it. That’s the only explanation for why he’s acting so distant and cold after dancing the night away (please also look at those stills again and realize they were dancing a tango and YUURI WAS LEADING).
Now Victor has dropped his whole life and followed up on what he thought was an invitation only to be met with shock and fainting and rejection. He must have been so depressed to realize this person he thought saw him for the real Victor really looks up to him like an idol just like everyone else and only said what he did in a moment of drunken courage.
And then, with that in mind, go watch the beach scene in episode 4 again. Victor is still trying to figure out what the hell Yuuri wants from him, with all these mixed signals, and Yuuri tells him to just BE HIMSELF. ALL YUURI WANTS IS THE REAL VICTOR.
