Chloe in Antibug
My take/opinions on the scenes Chloe Burgeois was in
Chloé is the one person we can assume to blame anything on anyone. However, she know’s that Myléne isn’t at fault after her hair is pulled and actually says so.
I know she’s a jerk… but no one standing up for you in class (teacher included) and laughing at you usually doesn’t obligate a person to want to be nice to you.
Chloe has no visitors except for Sabrina. Chat and Ladybug show up when she’s in danger. Seemingly, that’s when her father appears as well, unless some event is going on. Her father also spoils and fonds over her ridiculously. It’s probably been going on for a long time. I don’t know, but she seems to have a rather lonely life and to be treated by a parent in such a manner is bound to make any kid a bit bratty on the edges.
Besides Mayor Burgeois, Adrien/Chat is the only one to generally care about her when she is attacked by the Invisible One. She has very few people looking out for her in that case. I’m under the impression that Ladybug looks out for because she has to.
Getting humiliated and laughed at by a celebrity and a TV person (can’t think of the proper term right now) and ignored and harshly reprimanded by your idol doesn’t put anyone in a good mood. Part of me can’t blame Chloe for being angry at Sabrina and becoming akumatized because of Ladybug.
Ouch. Quite a slap to the face to be called a liar by your idol, even when you were trying to help. And also a bit of a blow even if your friend is akumatized.
I have to give Chloe props for being brave and semi-taking charge in taking care of the akuma she caused. An invisible being attacking me? I would have left the country.
Chloe rarely offers help or advice to anyone, her idol included. But to actually do so this time and be ignored…. it does give a meaning of “too little, too late” and I feel like Chloe grasps this concept before she is akumatized.
To be called a liar and not even thanked for helping out is a huge blow to anyone. Watching her idol become extremely exasperated with her is a lightbulb moment for Chloe as well as heart-breaking.
Once again, ouch.
Chloe seems the type to not accept apologies (like she did with Sabrina) or change her mind about things. However, this episode was a bit of a turn around for her, as we see slight development in her character. We see her weaker, apologetic, and gracious side (in her own way, of course) come out just a bit. I also love this episode because we see that Ladybug is definitely not perfect.
Walking into a class where you’re already despised and now with knowledge that you became a villain and cause some havoc… that’s difficult. I find it commendable that Chloe came to class the very next day. Very brave.
Chloe still has to be Chloe, and I like the way the writers wrote this part of the episode. I also like the fact that she opens one eye. I don’t know if it means anything, but I partially get the feeling that Sabrina would refuse to sit by her and she would have no one. Even though she gives her a piece of jewelry she bought, it does show in a way that money can’t buy you happiness all the time. Deep down, I think Chloe immensely appreciate Sabrina being her friend.
