idk, the scene confuse me, Ed has the same sad expression the whole time but he's still pointing the gun at Os. Wasn't there a red still with him from this episode? Maybe he's under the influence of drugs or one of Ivy's potions.
Ohhhh I totally forgot about the red still. OMG good point!!
So far, any time that we`ve seen Ivy use her plant magic, there`s sometimes like a glow around the person but never a red light … The only time we saw a red light was during the Amy Winehouse hallucination. But the drug he was on back then was speed, I don’t know why that would be giving him that dopey look. BUT I would actually LOOOOOOVE it if that was the case because Oswald is still completely in the dark about Ed’s drug use as a way to cope with his death and I reallyyyy want him to find out about it.
Tbh, Ed’s expressions really confuse me sometimes. Especially in 3x17 when he would go from looking like he was going to laugh to looking like he was going to cry in the blink of an eye. I took it to mean he was really unstable at that time.
As for why he’s still pointing the gun at Oswald, even with that sad/concerned look on his face, I think he believes that killing Oswald is something that HAS to be done. He thinks if he doesn’t kill Oswald first, Oswald and his army of freaks will kill him. But that doesn’t mean that he isn’t struggling with it. And maybe it is super contradictory for him to look concerned at the sight of Fish taking Oswald away, when he himself was about to kill Oswald. But we know that Oswald’s death the first time fucked him up really hard. I can’t even imagine what losing Oswald a second time would do to him.
Either way, 3x20 is going to be really interesting.
