I honestly can't decide whether we are reading into the whole parallels or if they're purposefully there. I definitely think the cut on Homer and French's forehead and the whole Buck/Rachel red backpack/car accident thing was intentional but the other stuff idk. Part of me thinks theres so many similarities between all of them that it can't possibly be a unintentional but then some of the similarities just feel like a reach. basically my mind is a conflicting mess
Thanks to @theoanetflix for reminding me about the Rachel/Buck similarities.
The more we discuss the further we get. Last night I made that obnoxious post in response to you, about how they don’t parallel each other, but everything about the original and secondary five is purposeful.
NOW I’m thinking, what if, what if these similarities aren’t parallels at all, but clues about dimensions brushing shoulders, or perhaps bleeding into each other. OR, similarly, maybe now that the family is being exposed to OA’s story, they are able to perceive that which they were not able to before.
For example, the Buck/Rachel car accident parallel. At the end of “Champion”, Rachel tells her story about her brother. Later, at the start of “Forking Paths”, Buck passes the car crash site. They aren’t exact parallels and they don’t happen near each other. Maybe what Buck sees (and only HE sees it, from what we know) is a manifestation of the other dimension.
Same thing with French seeing Homer’s reflection. French is the only one that sees Homer in the mirror. And it is just a mirror, it’s not like he sees Homer standing in the room before him. And Steve chasing the ambulance, same idea there. Maybe it’s just the other dimension breaking through, maybe the original five can sense what OA is doing and are trying to reach her, too.
Magnus wasn’t any different than the king. He, too, was afraid of the princess. Her spirit was so bright, he’d been blinded by it. And yet, he’d never wanted to close his eyes to block out that light. [inspired by @connorose]
abby yates is under appreciated and she shouldn’t be; she’s basically the reason the ghostbusters exist as a group, she’s excitable and enthusiastic, she loves everyone with her whole heart and soul and she is determined to do good 24/7.
and let’s not forget “I hate to DEBARGE in” - she’s a lover of bad puns
what gets me abt ppl saying justice league needs solo movies first is that like… 3 of the avengers had solo movies before avengers came out?? like yeah theres the hulk movies but so many people don’t even count those as the mcu to begin with??
