“If after episode 15, you don’t love Miguel or understand him or give him a chance, you might just be an unhappy person in general. It’s sad, because I don’t believe that it’s Miguel’s fault. People fell so in love with Jack and Rebecca that they couldn’t see anyone else” - Milo
“I know in particular in episode 15, for me, I walked away from the script going, ‘If people aren’t in love with Miguel at this point…” - Mandy
Aaron may also put some of the blame for Rob cheating on himself. Is Rob to blame? Absolutely. But I can see Aaron saying it would not have happened if he hadn't told Rob he was no use to him & hit Rob where it hurt the most. He may very well see his own role in it not to mention Bex taking advantage. It's not a black and white situation that everyone wants it to be.
It would be a very Aaron thing to do. I can see them having an argument and Robert saying he felt like there was nothing left because of what Aaron said to him and Aaron feeling like it was his fault.
Personally I think Rebecca was to blame as well as Robert. She knew he was vulnerable and drunk, she knew how much Robert loves Aaron, yeah Robert lied to her about stuff but if it was the other way round people would have a serious problem with it.
Robert has so many issues and it’s definitely not black and white!
couple things: do not EVER position Cartoon Network as some sort of Good Ally because of Steven Universe
those rocks are not lesbians. they are not ALLOWED to be
that’s not Rebecca Sugar’s fault, and it is Cartoon Network’s. all fucking critical rhetoric around the show that does not reflect that ultimate truth is in service of hetero-supremacy and capitalism
other thing: you know what gets me the most about Andromeda? I was prepared to not have my tastes catered to – again. I was prepared to be given fewer options and to not be engaged with the options I was given. I was ready to play a game where I didn’t enjoy the romantic arc but I was glad it was there
I was not prepared to be denied a seat at the fucking table. I was not prepared to have my identity pulled aside and told “yeah…. everyone else but you”
and to bring it all together, this is why corporations are not our friends. they are not our allies. they are not anything that serves us
wdyt of the this is us finale? i thought it was underwhelming (best episode is still "memphis" by far imo). i dislike how the show has failed to even out jack and rebeccas personalities. it seems we're always meant to agree with jack, view him as perfect (theyve barely touched upon his faults in comparison to us always seeing rebeccas and none of her good moments), meanwhile rebecca is deemed as being in the wrong quite a lot of the time. it bothers me ngl.
I think it was underwhelming as well, but I liked that it was underwhelming? I feel like shows have this thing where every season finale needs to be shocking and emotional and leave you feeling like you’re gonna die and can’t wait to see what happens next but TIU has never really been that show for me honestly?
All in all, I think they did a good job showing us how Jack could’ve been a very different man had he not met Rebecca. And I think they’re both equal here, it just depends on your personal values. I think Rebecca’s only mistake this episode was telling Jack that his alcoholism is fake and that he’s like his father. Jack’s more in the wrong, I mean he got extremely drunk and went to see her and kind of ruined all her dreams (even though that wasn’t his intention) and it leads them to a separation.
Jack seems “right” because Rebecca is defensive and dismissive of Jack’s past, I think, but that doesn’t actually make Jack right. They both carry resentment. Jack is resentful of Rebecca for the very reason he fell in love with her. He meets her at a bar and her singing stops him from carrying out what could’ve been a life changing crime, but in their marriage it’s her singing that winds up driving them apart.
Jack wants Rebecca to hold the same values of family that he does and the truth of the matter is… she doesn’t lol and never has. They’re ill-suited, but they love each other. But that love just isn’t enough now and hopefully we get to see more of that.
