There’s just something about this scene that gets to me. The desperation in her eyes, in her face, perhaps. This scene is amazing, Charlotte Sullivan is amazing.
Have you noticed that in the second gif she does two short intakes of breath…. that’s damn near close to actual hyperventilating if I ever saw it. That’s hard to act. props to her indeed.
I wonder if Charlotte played this so intensely for a reason. Because the show makes it easy to forget but moments like this I remember Gail was beaten and abducted. I wonder how she felt the moment she couldn’t see when the shirt got stuck, how legitimately terrifying that was for her. If she had a flashback or simply cannot calmly deal with things like that now.
There are so many ‘funny’ Gail moments that, once I reflect on them, I realize aren’t very funny at all. I understand it’s hard to write a character who never wants anyone to know what she’s feeling, her perspective won’t be offered often in dialogue. But that’s why narrative is so important. And Gail’s never had much of one. So I’ve gotten used to assuming everything means something else or something more, especially since the abduction.
omg reblogging again for that beautiful commentary.
"cursing the fact that no one could actually speak muffin in mouth fluently" .... you sure?
But also eeyoooo. I like the way you think anon. ;)
Is it selfish to say I want you the whole fucking time? I want you in my head. I want you in my bed. I want your hands all over my thighs. Give me your tightest grip. I want to exhale all of my loneliness and sadness to you. I want to breathe you in. I want you. I want you and I want you to want me too.
