Fatal Attraction and Basic...Idiocy
Just to recap:
- When Reese's wife and alleged great love took their daughters and went back to France, Reese stayed behind in Pine Valley, where most people (and 99% of viewers) hate her and where she doesn't know anyone, because of some stupid "I've never been to me" reason.
Julie Hanan Carruthers claimed that any AMC viewer who sees any sort of attraction between Reese and Zach is "rewriting what's not there", like we all make it through an hour of the show and immediately go around constructing elaborate fantasies about what really happened, when, really, our main thought is "Oh, god, in 24 hours I have to watch that again!"
On yesterday's episode, Reese and Zach had this pleasant conversation:
Reese: Kendall is wrong. I would never intentionally hurt either of you. You have to believe me.
Zach: I don't have to believe anything. Adam Chandler? What is that? Revenge? You want to go after my family because of that, because of revenge?
Reese: No, I want Bianca back, and I need to prove it to you. It starts with you.
Zach: No, it does not. You come after my family, we have a real problem.
Reese: Go ahead, walk away. Go.
I think what Zach was saying is pretty explicit, but apparently since Reese is great at everything, this includes being great at reading subtext and she interpreted that subtext to be "Please come over to my house tonight and we can discuss this further. You can bring some snacks, and I'll provide drinks. It will be fun! Peer into our windows first to make sure that we are home".
Which she did, putting approximately ten times more effort into repairing her relaitonship wth Zach than she has in trying to get Bianca back. And then she got all crestfallen when she lurked around the window and saw that Zach and Kendall had just had sex. And we are apparently not supposed to find her creepy!
I shudder to think what it must be like to have a social interaction with an AMC writer, as they obviously have no idea of what normal human behavior entails.
There is much more AMC to discuss! Next time: Zen sex, Emmy pre-noms and the promo of evil. Spoiler: it's all terrible!
