(disclaimer: i’m with the minority who believe the over-arching mystery of the series including all the background adult vfd members is not only fascinating but necessary to make the later reveals and overall series work. i’m also a little biased bc i’m heavily invested in the history/mystery surrounding the fire-fighting side of the schism. that aside, this will be a shit post as i’m excited and incoherent.)
every mention of beatrice (and bertrand) cleared my skin
warburton humanized lemony for me; where he was once an abstract concept narrating from a distance he’s more fleshed out, and wonderfully captures the tone of lemony
tl;dr he made me like lemony
lemony running from the authorities is a+ also i like how he fucks off without regard to all the evidence hes leaving behind lmao
i deeply relate to lemony in how i, too, suffer over beatrice
“NOBODY ASKED YOU” - edgar poe, a true icon
takes after his mother queen eleanora of the daily punctilio
count olaf being a petty bitch is everything to me
shirley st. ives is T H I C C hot damn yas mami bring it
jacquelyn (!!!) and gustav running around in the background trying to right wrongs and get the baudelaires to their rightful destination is a BREATH OF FRESH AIR
where i was once frustrated beyond belief that bad things kept happening to the baudelaires bc even vfd members seemed incompetent and stupid is one beef i had with the books
to see vfd members alerted to the fact that somethings wrong and then kicking ass + taking names behind the scenes is GREAT and makes it seem more plausible
I LOVE VFD MEMBERS POPPING OUT OF THE WOODWORK we get to SEE them instead of hearing about them after its too late
gustav is hot af??? and can get it anytime like damn daniel
lets pretend his death never happened
which brings me to:
is she kit snicket in disguise? she’s got blonde hair, has history with olaf, can beat his ass with one hand while he thanks her, etc
i could be wrong but let a girl live?? i’m thirsty for her at this point
ngl i fell for the whole baudelaire-turned-quagmire twist :(
i came out to ship beatrice/bertrand and i honestly feel so attacked rn
i was excited for the whole “beatrice & bertrand adventuretimes before dying tragically near the end of the series” thing like i imagined
WHY COULDN’T YOU CATER 2 MY INTERESTS NETFLIX i was so captivated :(
i!👏 wanted!👏 exposition!👏 on! 👏 them! 👏 ughhh
no beatrice in a dragonfly costume at the masked ball? no bisexual beatrice making out with r, the duchess of winnepeg?? no beatrice stealing esme’s sugar bowl??? unfriended blocked and reported
will they even give us flashbacks of beatrice next season? im salty
also dr. orwell dated bertrand? it ended in a lawsuit and plastic surgery?? omfg give this 2 me
cobie smulders is beautiful gahhhhhhdamn
mama quagmire slayed the entire show
like idk how they’re gonna make beatrice look cool in comparison to her
also: who knew mama quagmire had so much in common with violet?
both even came up with the same inventions
lmao why are the quagmire kids such squares??
i want to beat them up
they’re already making quigley stand apart to foreshadow his eventual separation from his siblings but dude was stone cold when he refused to hug his father lmao “WHATS WRONG WITH UR LEG DAD WHY ARE U SUCH A PEASANT”
I’M ALWAYS A SLUT FOR ESME SQUALOR CAMEOS
shes serving that beautiful cruella deville vibe. im Shook and Scalped
this is the esme we deserve! flipping thru a newspaper while she sets a house on fire….. elegantly draped across the seat in couture clothing:’) my wife
speaking of queen esme when is she going to burn violet’s horrible bright pink dress i was fucking squinting it was so obnoxiously pink
violet in high-waisted button-up flares is my Aesthetic™
i am So Ready for violet slaying the fashion game next season in cute plaid skirts
violet holding klaus’ hand is always pure and wholesome content
i love the baudelaires reclaiming their agency and fucking off by themselves to the lucky smells lumber mill bc yes
the baudelaires waiting for aunt josephine to leave aND THEN TURNING ON THE STOVE TO COOK A HOT MEAL i lost it @ my bby pack rats
mr poe eating chowder in the middle of a panic attack is Oscar-worthy
i loooooooove all the references to other books sprinkled in
we need that good exposition and foreshadowing THANK
tbh i hope daniel handler keeps taking liberties and including characters and references and adding more plot
otherwise the story quickly becomes a rinse-and-repeat and i was sick of that with the movie
next season pls deliver: beatrice, esme, kit (jacquelyn??), jacquelyn, mama quagmire, slaying us left and right, the denouement brothers, quigley and jacques, etc all working behind the scenes or in flashbacks, violet destroying everyone at prep school, cynical sarcastic baudelaire children

Nate and Sophie five minutes later: *has long-term monogamous relationship leading to marriage*
okay so imagine rey and finn finally getting together if only because they’re both super fucking awkward, but it’s the same wavelength of awkward so it just works out, only the problem they found is that now that they’re together poe has stopped flirting with them and they’re both so confused (they don’t realize that poe thinks they only want each other and so he’s been avoiding acting too friendly) so rey and finn theorize that for some reason he’s not flirting with them or hugging them or holding their hands anymore because rey and finn are datemates and so they come up with a plan to break-up with each other because, yes, that will make poe like them again!! when poe finds out he’s distraught and goes to try to see if there’s anything he can do to fix things (sweet angel) only they’re ridiculous babes and so even tho they’re “broken up” they still do everything they did when they were still dating so poe walks in on them making out and is like ???? and they’re so excited to see him and it’s a giant trainwreck because poe is like “…i thought you guys broke up… i was coming to comfort you both… i brought hot chocolate” and they’re like “yeah!! we broke up so now you’ll like us again right?” and poe feels so guilty for hurting their feelings and tries to explain that ofc he still likes them but he didn’t want to get in the middle of their new relationship and rey and finn just look at him and are like “but we WANT you in the middle of our relationship… we thought that was obvious?” and poe is like “OH! ..ohhh”
