I guess it’s comforting that even if the rest of the town has gone insane, Carly is still Carly. And by that, I mean also insane, but in a totally predictable, in character way:
CARLY: You’re arrogant. You’re ruthless. You’re vindictive. You’re violent. And when you get angry, you can be really cruel.
SONNY: [chuckles, like “yeah, I’m terrible, LOL”]
CARLY: But you’re also loyal. Courageous. An incredible father. You’re the most charming man I have ever met.
An incredible father! Those words came out of her mouth, without irony, after everything that’s happened over the last year! Amazing.
On the one hand, I’m laughing because: oh, Carly. Never change. But mostly it’s kind of sad? Like… imagine a friend describing their significant other as violent, vindictive, and cruel — but he’s super charming and has great dimples! Every single internal alarm bell would be screaming. I mean, at this point, Carly’s basically just reciting domestic abuse pamphlets to describe their relationship.
YOU CAN DO BETTER, GIRL. You have done better. Remember Jax? God, I miss Jax.
Meanwhile, Alexis and Julian crawled out of whatever dark hole they’ve been hiding in for the past two months so they could get some good, old fashioned roleplay going.
I’m not gonna lie: it was pretty good for me. And very little has been good for me on this show lately, so here. Have a nice weekend:
Unfortunately, this show is the Sonny to my Carly, which means it is vindictive and cruel and I keep coming back to it even though it takes everything I love and crushes it to death in front of me. (I think, for the purposes of this metaphor, Alexis getting laid is the equivalent of Sonny’s dimples? IDK, JUST GO WITH IT.) So, of course, they immediately spoiled the afterglow by implying Julian is back in the mob. Of course.
Listen up, show. These two are the literally only thing I have left that you haven’t completely ruined. SO DON’T RUIN IT.
