So I’m halfway through season 1 of The Punisher but I just wanted to share with you all something that has been on my mind since episode 2: flowers. As if Frank giving Karen flowers wasn’t reason enough to flail, they‘re white roses. But why does it matter? Well, different flowers have different meanings. While I don’t believe Frank gave much thought to which kind of flowers he was buying (although he bought flowers, and that means something already), the writers certainly did, as it is a common way to convey a message about characters’ feelings, intentions or about the nature of a relationship. So buckle up and follow me through all the Feels™ because not only are roses a universal symbol of love, white roses have a very interesting and particular meaning. If you google it, you’ll learn that white flowers are usually associated with purity and innocence. But beyond that, white roses can symbolize new beginnings and convey a message of hope, being used to celebrate marital or romantic bonds. That’s why they‘re also associated with young love. Also, in the old times, instead of red roses, a suitor would send a bouquet of white roses to convey their intentions of beginning a courtship. Besides all these, sending someone white roses can express feelings of trust, loyalty, respect, admiration and reverence.
I don’t know about you guys, but I‘m inclined to believe that TPS writers are Kastle af
This feels the most Old Taylor. And by Old Taylor I mean emotionally authoritative, texture details, interesting turns of phrases, things that kind of make an unexpected left, but don’t jolt you. Just that kind of pull you in an unexpected direction. I think it’s beautiful.
The way the metaphors bounce between actual love on the rebound and robbery is pretty clever.
Is it love on the rebound or is it cheating?
Well that’s alluded to throughout the album. "I have a boyfriend he’s older than us, he’s in the club doing I don’t know what."
Neither do any of us because his records are undistinguished.
Or maybe Hiddleston was in the club. We don’t really know. Chronologically--
Like hunting club maybe. A foxhunt club.
...Something else that I’ll say about Getaway Car that is Old Taylor and harkens back to Country is the final chorus switch, where at first he’s driving the getaway car and then she’s driving the getaway car. I mean, going back to Our Song, that’s a classic.... And it’s the plot twist at the end of Dear John.
Getaway Car, in addition to me liking it a lot, I also found very reassuring. Because there was still part of me that, even though I enjoy these records, I enjoy this album, there is part of me that’s like, oh, this is not why I used to like Taylor. This is me liking Taylor for other reasons... It’s notable that she took a risk in how she presented herself and more or less pulled that off. That’s not something that a lot of her peers are doing.
Probably, my last little tribute to “evil entity” of Heinous (Meteora)
the Monday episode, I thought that the creators will turn her into a
sort of advanced techno-vampire (who drains the life out of young girls
with the help of technology, not fangs) but I like it even
more the way the events unfolded in the end!
P. S. - by the way,
remember that this “vampire” needs didn’t go anywhere, so far I don’t
expect that she will swing to the “bright side” immediately…

(Fan account) OP felt that Seungcheol is the type who keeps worries to himself and was worried about that, but cheol said that he isn’t like this. He talks to the rest of the guys a lot. Whenever he’s having a hard time, he’ll tell jeonghan: ”Jeonghan-ah~ buy me a drink (alcohol)~”
OP then said that his expression remained serious and that he was such a cute person TT
