guys okay mini rant of excitement because something just occurred to me and it’s probably a reach or whatever but i need to share
i’ve always found the camera scene in 1x03 incredibly interesting because of what it shows about the teens characters blah blah blah and one thing i always tend to focus on is the moment that nancy shows up and carol shows her the pictures. steve looks genuinely upset and bothered that she’s seeing those photos, which makes sense to me because yeah its upsetting and he wants to protect her and stuff BUT today i thought about it more and i thought about the scene of them earlier in that episode, in front of nancy’s locker.
and what does nancy say???? “i feel like everyone’s staring at me”
she’s terrified that people know what happened and they’re going to judge her. steve reassures her that he didn’t tell anyone, but here they are looking at PROOF that someone know and PROOF that someone was, in the most literal sense, staring at nancy at an intimate point in her life. the parallels between those moments has never occurred to me before but now im like shook
