I’m literally dead cuz Shay Mitchell is playing another lesbian in a tv series and looks like we’re getting queer kisses that aren’t just little pecks HA plus this time she’s super femme and looks like shay not Emily fields LOL not used to it yet but like we are blessed
Joe Goldberg is insane and doesn’t even realize it, which makes me hate his character even more. He’s just a creepy Dan Humphrey with zero boundaries. And the worst part is he’s calling Peach a stalker when his stalking is so much worse and he doesn’t even know that’s what he’s doing.
Is that I know so many girls that are like Beck. And I think we all do, that give guys who give her friends bad vibes a chance, and then when things don’t add up disregard what the friend(s) tell her in favor of the guy.
Peach was problematic but I was really hoping she was going to be one of the huge major factors in outting Joe and saving her best friend. I was sincerely hoping that it would have portrayed Peach’s problematic obsession and own stalker skills as a method of outwitting joe and probably ending with her seeking help to be a better person for her friends after realizing what path she was on in becoming like Joe.
Instead we get predatory closeted lesbian who gets murdered.
Let’s just put the facts out there. Peach was a selfish, spiteful, manipulative friend who wanted to be the most successful and prominent person in her group. She kept each of her friends under her thumb and didn’t support Beck’s relationship despite the fact that she knew nothing about Joe other than his occupation. She spied on Beck while the latter was naked in the bathroom. She tried to sabotage Beck getting her name out career wise. Beck wanted a platonic massage and vocalized this, but Peach hit on her and blamed them being intoxicated. She was a predator. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a lesbian of color, and I love getting queer representation, but this character does not deserve to be idolized. And I also don’t want anyone replying to this and bringing up Joe. We all know what a disturbed, deranged, shitty character he is. Bringing him up as a rebuttal to this post is completely unnecessary.
me, as lawyer trying to prove that peach’s suicide was actually murder: peach salinger pegged a man the night before she died. pegging gives you endorphins. endorphins make you happy. happy people don’t kill themselves after a night of pegging someone. they just dont.
shay mitchell and penn badgley have a lot of on screen chemistry in You. like not romantic or sexual obviously, but i just mean they work well together.
the way both joe and peach were fucked up but spotted it almost instantaneously in each other and were constantly trying to one up the other (or lay down these salty one-liner burns) was really well done. like joe calling her peaches and her INSISTING on still calling him joseph, (even when they’re about to kill each other) is so petty it’s almost funny. in a super morbid, fucked up way
Another interesting idea, how about they make a back story of Peach? Tell the story on how and why she became obsessive and how far she would go to keep Beck. Show us how similar and completely different she is from Joe. Give us a deeper understanding of the different ways you can be obsessive.
