This episode was a neither-fish-nor-fowl torture. It didn't try to tell us much. It didn't promote Scott and Tessa's reality show personas (her a pathetic P.G. Wodehouse-esque gawdhelpus, him something out of Duck Dynasty) as much as previous episodes, so it was a slog. Episode 5 makes up for it (based on what I've read, I actually will be able to stay awake long enough to post that tomorrow), apparently.
The most striking element of this episode were the ways in which we saw how the actual Scott Moir is accustomed to wending his way through the maze of Tessa's insanity and zeroing in/connecting with something human.
And, to give Tessa some credit, there was this way she appears to differ from Moirville:
|"TRYING to be funny? SUCCEEDING!"|
Very unlike Tessa, this sort of remark re Scott reads as completely genuine and not at all controlling/patronizing/pandering. How did Tessa overlook the opportunity here to make herself seem pathetic? Oh well, I hear she doubles down in Episode 5.
I'm so glad she has a daughter. That child will be chewing her nails to the quick and self-abusing by age 6, if she takes after her mother.
I certainly hope none of the little and young girls who idolize Tessa Virtue watch this show and learn what a male-dependant, self-lacerating, self-disgusted, inept, pathetic, incompetent waste of oxygen she finds herself to be, Olympic champion and model-gorgeous though she is. WAY to go, Tessa. Why not put a suicide hotline number scroll in all your scenes? I think you owe it to fans. If YOU suck, what right do all those ordinary females watching have to exist?
|"Scott almost seemed to give a shit."|
|I liked - and obviously, noticed, that moment too, Kate.|
WHY did people think she was smart? The blonde bob? Her husband is a litigation attorney? Tessa - the Madwoman of London - said she was?
At least it's settled now that she's as dumbass as her youngest daughter.
|Seriously. Not even a random extra behind them. I'd say we should|
be insulted but let's just stipulate that about the entire reality show.
|They beat Kaitlyn and Andrew! What a relief!|
Maybe they'll make the top 5 in Sochi after all!
|Cassandra seems to be struggling to hold onto Scott, and|
Scott admires Tessa's outfit and notices her shoes!
Episode 5 must be FANTASTIC!
Episode 5 tomorrow (my plan is the whole thing).
Also, I'm going to put up some more skating comparisons (linked in the comments section to the post below).
