Do you ever think about Zoe Murphy and just start bawling
Requiem is obviously heartrending–she’s clearly deeply, deeply resentful of Connor, not only for terrorizing her, for hurting her, but also I really think for creating sort of a black hole in her family–everything was about Connor and everything about Connor was broken and destructive and terrible–but If I Could Tell Her makes me cry just as hard. Laura Dreyfuss’ performance is astounding tbh, and hammers home how much Zoe wanted a relationship with her brother despite everything: “he always seemed so far away/It’s like I don’t know anything.” It just breaks my heart how hard Zoe is trying to make sense of the Connor she sees in Evan’s letters and how incongruent that person is with the Connor she remembers, and also y'all, Zoe loved her brother!!!! She hated him but she loved him too!!!! Zoe Murphy is so kind and good-hearted and so lonely and I love her she deserves the world ok I’m just saying. I have too many feelings about these sad kids!!
